“Michael Stevens from Vsauce touches on logarithmic thinking, two different folks (Mike Smith and Jeremy Harper) that hold world records for counting, the Planck length, and more.”

‘And Then I Vanish’ is a surreal motion poem, which started as director Cornel Swoboda’s spare time project. It was made with Cinema4D & Octane Render.
A virtual version of a famous painting lets you wander round the artwork and explore the scene in 3D – with a few added extras.
“An unmanned Russian rocket carrying three navigation satellites has crashed to earth. A state-run television station captured the moment. Within seconds of blast off it was clear the Proton-M booster rocket was in trouble as it veered off course.”
Inspired by Lautlos from Feedmee (vimeo.com/10458544) and the movie Inception.
Extraterrestrials could already be learning about life on Earth. Problem is, the most recent TV signals may be from 2002…
The world may fall apart, but will we notice?

A fun little way to waste a few minutes at work. This video, which works best in full screen HD, creates an optical illusion that will give you hallucinogenic-like effects afterwards. When the video finishes, you will see wavy lines on the walls/floor/etc due to “repeated psychological stimulation.” If possible, focus on some wood grain afterwards.
This is the first time in four decades that the Calbuco volcano has erupted. It blasted twice on Wednesday and about 5,000 people have evacuated.
According to NPR:
The Calbuco volcano in southern Chile erupted this week for the first time in four decades. Quiet since 1972, it’s blown twice since Wednesday, generating striking images and concerns over the effects of both the lava and a mammoth cloud of ash.
That column of ejected ash measures nearly 7 miles, says Chile’s National Mining and Geology Service, citing a “flyby” that was made early Thursday. In its latest update, the agency says volcanic activity is finally diminishing but that a state of emergency remains for a 12-mile area.
Saying 5,000 people have left the area around the volcano, NPR’s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports, “Local officials say people are very, very frightened. The immediate concern is the volcano’s eruption could trigger snow melts and cause flooding.”
