There is a Twilight Zone episode where a businessman makes a pact with the Devil, which allows him to go back in time so that he can capitalize off of his knowledge about the future.
It turns out though that the businessman’s knowledge about the future is all superficial and thus he is unable to jump start any technological advancements by traveling back in time. This would likely be the plight of most contemporary humans if they were sent back in time. While we rely greatly on technology, most of us don’t know much about how it actually works and where the materials to make it come from.
Finally, an NES cartridge casemod I can get behind without weeping uncontrollably. This one houses a complete library of NES games, uses the original buttons, and hides inside the Super Mario/Duck Hunt combo cartridge.
Of course, there must be some people out there who do enjoy McDonald’s Holiday Pies – they wouldn’t make them unless there was at least some demand. It’s to those few people I express my deepest sympathy.
I’m sorry, fictional reader of this journal entry, for whatever has led you to this pitiable point in your life. I wish things could have gone differently for you. But, please, if you have children, do not feed them McDonald’s Holiday Pies. You have the power to break the chain of fast food pie enjoyment. Let this sad, diabetes-inducing tradition die with you.
Bacon Jam which was originally a product that a company called Skillet Foods makes and sends around the United States. Knowing that I’d have no chance of getting my greedy paws on a jar I simply daydreamed about it and for every day since I saw it, I’d think about it.
I’d eat eggs and think “This would go so well with that Bacon Jam” and eat some slices of tomato on sourdough and think “Something is missing, I think it’s bacon jam!” and I became somewhat of a food stalker thinking about it day and night until I got my hands on some double smoked bacon and the rest as they say, is eating history.
An Original Recipe by Not Quite Nigella
•500grams/1 pound smoked bacon (or use regular bacon and liquid smoke) •4 cloves garlic, chopped •1 medium brown onion sliced •3 tablespoons brown sugar •Tabasco sauce (according to taste) •1 cup coffee •1/4 cup apple cider vinegar •1/4 cup maple syrup •Black pepper to taste •extra water
Throughout the world (and the web), derivative artwork inspired by the white-armored battlements of the Empire is prevalent. Stormtroopers are instantly cathartic as a medium, bendable to any whim the artist may choose. Twisted Sifter has the collection you’re looking for.
There is no other way to interpret it: The TSA is saying clearly that they can't prevent terrorists from getting explosives on airplanes, but by god, they'll make sure those planes only explode when the TSA says it's okay.
A new study says that the average person spends over 13 hours a week online. Holy cow, do you know what that means? All of us are finally above average at doing something!
The Harris Interactive poll, released Wednesday, found that 80 percent of U.S. adults go online, whether at home, work, or elsewhere. Those who surf the Net spend an average of 13 hours per week online, but that figure varies widely. Twenty percent are online for two hours or less a week, while 14 percent are there for 24 hours or more.
If you guessed "supersonic jet" or "submachine gun" you’d be right! Sure stuff like iPods and cameras made the list but who cares about that, I want to hear about the weird stuff! What did you wish for?
They're all there on the nation's wish list, this ABC News poll finds, alongside the new bikes, the cameras, the Kindles, Nooks and iPods, the "pair of boots" and warm coats, sewing machines, crock pots, laptops, cameras, vacuum cleaners, the "perfumes, always" – and the odder ones.
Another year has come and gone, and as always, we're taking a moment to look back at the happenings of 2009—the people, events and memories that made this year unique. Each year, we examine the billions of queries that people around the world have typed into Google search to discover the zeitgeist—the spirit of the times. As we welcome the new year, we hope you enjoy this glimpse at the past.

Today, at the start of the 21st century, the miracle of food processing has brought that dream closer to reality than ever before. From vitamin-free "blueberry bits" to spray-can cheese to avocado-free guacamole, food scientists have worked tirelessly to bring us new and exciting foods that contain as little nutrition as possible.
The year 2009 is now coming to a close, and it's time to take a look back over the past 12 months through photographs. Historic elections were held in Iran, India and the United States, some wars wound down while others escalated, China turned 60, and the Berlin Wall was remembered 20 years after it came down.
The FBI has arrested the guy that uploaded Wolverine a month before the movie came out. Finally this dangerous criminal is off the streets, we can all sleep better tonight.
Gilberto Sanchez, 47, was arrested in the Bronx, N.Y. early Wednesday morning by FBI agents without incident, according to law enforcement sources. A spokeswoman from the FBI's Los Angeles field office, which led the investigation, confirmed the arrest.
Do we know where our food comes from, and how it’s prepared? Do we know what are we eating? It looks like we don’t give a damn. If it’s tasty, then it’s on a table. And how much this cost? Look what people all around the world eat, and how much it costs. Maybe we will start to think about it… We present to you the monthly food costs of average family all around the world!

Unlike traditional media centers with numerous bulky components and complex wiring, this home theater system by Bose provides rich, room-filling sound from only two palm-sized speakers and a subwoofer.
Drawing on over 40 years of psychoacoustic research, this entertainment system uses proprietary TrueSpace digital processing circuitry to deliver spacious, multichannel sound that captures the boom of action scenes and the nuances of live musical performances.
This ice cream maker produces 1 1/2 qts. of soft serve ice cream, yogurt, sorbet, or sherbet in 35 minutes without the need for chemicals, salt, or ice, and allows you to mix your own toppings from three separate hoppers that automatically dispense nuts, cookie crumbles, and sprinkles through a funnel directly into a tube of frozen confection as it falls into a waiting bowl at the push of a button.
Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 1900s, this floor globe is a concept that was intended for one of his Prairie Homes but never came to fruition until now. Made by Replogle Globes, crafters of fine terrestrial globes for 79 years, the floor globe is based on a sketch found in the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation archives.
The globe stand exhibits the form-follows-function principle, strong horizontal lines, and simplified geometric forms that were hallmarks of the Prairie School movement.
Looking for that extra bit of screen real estate to get you through the busy workday? Problem is, an entire secondary monitor comes with its own needs like a separate power or an additional video card.
The Lilliput Mini USB Monitor changes this equation completely. A single USB connection from your computer gets you an instant high-resolution secondary display.
The smokers in your office are up to something... but what? They huddle outside in all sorts of weather, flicking their lighters, puffing on their cigarettes, and discussing what you're pretty sure is a plan to take over the world.
Or at least the office park. And you have your own plan, an awesome plan to take them down by collecting evidence of their nefarious schemes. You'll grab the Spycam Classic Lighter Camera, walk out to their area with a candy cigarette and record their smoke break conversation while trying futilely to light your sugar stick.
These electromagnetic suspended globes are actually high-tech instruments. A magnetic field sensor continually measures the height at which the globes are suspended.
This sensor feeds that data into a micro computer in the base of the unit. This computer then calibrates the electronic magnets at the top of the frame based on the distance between the globes and the top magnet to keep the globes correctly positioned.
All in the blink of an eye! So not only do these look great on your desktop levitating in thin air, they are also technology marvels!
For almost twenty years, mathematicians Rick Mabry and Paul Deiermann have attempted to figure out the perfect way to slice a pizza for sharing. Turns out, mathematicians have been pondering pizza slicing problems since at least the 1960s. Mabry and Diermann have recently proved their pizza theorem and are now considering other related problems, like what happens if the pizza is square or, say, a 3D pizza, aka a calzone?
Here is a computer mod that has plenty of Christmas spirit! The only bummer is that, unless you are one of those people that leave your tree up year round, in three weeks you are going to have to store it until next December.

Miraculously, the wrecked vehicle landed just feet away from the photographer, who escaped unharmed.
The high-powered machine, capable of going from 0-60 mph in under a second, skidded off the track after its right side wheels hit an oil slick. Only the concrete barrier prevented Willsheer from being killed by stopping the car dead just three feet away from where he was standing.
‘The crowd were yelling out for him to get out of the way and he kept on taking pictures,’ said one eyewitness.
‘He really is lucky to be alive, but he must have taken some great photos.’
For those of you that haven’t seen it yet, I give you this cool zombie outbreak simulator that uses Google Maps. You can modify various settings such as the number of zombies, speed, infection times and more.
While researching the drawbacks and pitfalls of using home robots, tough questions have to be asked...like "what if it smacks your baby?" Wait, WHAT!?!?
"I remembered thinking, 'Whoa, this is scary,' as it whirled around, almost knocking me down," the Microsoft researcher recalled. "Then, I thought, 'What if I were a patient?' There could be big issues here."
The inverted bookshelf turns a bit of your living room upside down as it hangs all of the books from the bottom instead of supporting them from below. It's a satisfying optical trick and doesn't damage any of the books. In fact, you can take books in and out of it whenever you want.
It is a substantial part of how Kristen, whose last name I'm withholding out of concern for her privacy, has become, according to one leading compilation, the No. 4 ranking woman, worldwide, in Gamerscore. Her tag is CRU x360a - go ahead, look it up. Kristen - CRU or Crubie to some online - is a 24-year-old stay-at-home mom in northwest Indiana. You call her extremely motivated. You can call her obsessed. You can also call her an achievement whore
Recalling Robert Stirling's invention in 1816 of a safer, more efficient alternative to the steam engine, this working Stirling engine kit demonstrates the same thermodynamic principles that powered the original. Still taught today in mechanical engineering courses to show the high efficiency, quiet operation, and heat utilization of closed-cycle regenerative heat engines, Stirling engines are powered by the expansion and compression of air.
The kit serves as a hands-on tool for understanding the simple yet elegant dynamics of the seminal technology. The finished engine is fueled by an alcohol burner that heats the front of the glass tube, causing the air inside to expand and contract and push the piston toward the gears.
Using the same technology trusted to secure high-level state secrets, this is the only business case with a biometric security scanner.
A scanner on top of the case reads your fingerprint, compares it to its internal database, and provides access only when it detects a perfect match, providing an unprecedented level of security when traveling with sensitive business documents or valuables.
This is the Alpine racing sled with a built-in shock absorber that irons out bumps during rapid, downhill descents. Designed in Germany, the sled's corrosion-resistant, aircraft aluminum alloy frame uses a shrouded 6 1/2" spring--the same used in off-road bicycles--to significantly reduce the effect of bumps on the lower back.
The wide runners have polyethylene glide bars that provide superior gliding and tracking, and you can even use ski wax to optimize their performance.
Unlike standard outdoor holiday lights that must be tethered to an electric source, these solar powered lights can be strung anywhere in your yard. A small solar panel stakes into the ground up to 7' away from the light strand and powers 102 bright LEDs for up to nine hours after an eight-hour charge.
Seven different light patterns dance along the strand in succession, or you can select your favorite sequence to flash continuously or have the lights provide steady illumination with the touch of a button.
This waterproof MP3 player attaches to your swimming goggles, allowing you to listen to music while you swim. The player's short headphone cables do not interfere with your stroke as you swim. The player supports both MP3 and WMA digital audio formats, and its built-in 1GB memory can hold up to 300 songs, enough for an entire week of swim workouts.
This distiller uses the same principles of alchemy developed 1,100 years ago by Alkindus, renowned as the "father of perfume distillation." The still has a copper frame and a cucurbit, condensing pot, and a cooling cup made from borosilicate glass--the same glass used in laboratory beakers for its durability and heat resistance. The cucurbit holds the liquid to be distilled and is heated by the oil lamp.
As the liquid boils, oil vapor is produced and moves from the cucurbit through the swan-neck tube and, once it reaches the water-filled condensing pot, it is cooled and converted into a concentrated distillate.
Designed to resemble a classic amplifier for an electric guitar, this iPod speaker delivers crisp digital audio from its full-range 5-watt driver. Just like its on-stage cousins, it has three functional dials for volume, treble, and bass control--a rarity among MP3 speakers.

Christmas is almost here and that means the NY Times has released a brand new list of the top 10 video games you shouldn’t buy for kids! Obviously you and I take this as a "run out and buy" list and, to give credit where credit is due, it is a pretty damn good list:
•Assassin’s Creed II •Borderlands •Brutal Legend •Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 •Dead Space: Extraction •Dragon Age: Origins •Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony •Demon’s Souls •Left 4 Dead 2
A lot of this season’s most talked-about games include ones with excessive violence, negative role models, extreme gore, sociopathic behavior and other things that have been proven to have a negative effect on children.
Fake ratings on Apple’s App store? That’s impossible! Say it isn’t so! Okay, okay…I’m not really shocked but the whole thing is kinda funny, don’t you think?
Apple has removed a large iPhone developer and its catalog of over 1,000 apps after it was discovered to be participating in a ratings scam. Moliker Inc., developer of over 1,000 titles including Mobile Travel Guide (pictured), is accused of giving its own apps 5-star ratings in an attempt to raise average ratings and boost sales.

The photo-realistic plastic soldier figurine is actually a contestant from a cosplay competition at a comic con in Lucca, Italy. That’s all that I have right now, but I’ll update this post as more information filters into the geekosphere.
This is the hands-free, high-definition video camera that captures the action while you snowboard, scuba, sail, or cycle. The camera can be mounted to a helmet, handlebars, seat post, or snorkel--just about anyplace--using the included mounting hardware; its waterproof housing allows you to capture underwater action down to 180'.
It can capture video (as well as audio) in 1080p high-definition resolution with its 127º wide-angle lens (170º for 960p and 720p resolutions), saving content as an MP4 digital file onto an SD card (sold below).
Mounted under a cabinet in a kitchen or office, this compact media center lets you enjoy TV programs, DVD movies, music CDs, and AM/FM radio without creating countertop clutter. The 9" diagonal screen flips down and can be swiveled 270° to achieve the preferred viewing angle; its 16:9 aspect ratio makes it ideal for watching movies.
Its TFT active matrix LCD (the same as those used in flat panel televisions) produces sharp, detailed images with rich color in widescreen or standard 4:3 formats. It has a digital/analog television tuner, receives 135 cable channels, and it can be used as a stereo system, playing CDs as well as tuning in AM/FM radio stations.
Suitable for wearing with casual attire or while working out, this analog timepiece displays your heart rate with just a touch. The watch determines your heart rate using pulses from your wrist when you press two buttons simultaneously, displaying your heart rate in easy-to-read digital numbers, eliminating the need to wear an uncomfortable chest strap.
This electronic chess game can teach players how to achieve check-mate in eight moves. The game was play-tested by the University of Chicago Chess Team and found to be superior to other models because of the quality of its instructional mode.
The team's players indicated that its hints function was the easiest to follow of all the play-tested models--it offers a comprehensive coaching system that includes eight built-in classical mate studies, allowing players to select between hint, training, and referee modes.
This game has a United States Chess Federation rating of 2,320, an opening book of 8,900 half-moves, and 112 training and tournament levels, yet despite the game's "Master" rating, the chess team found it to be the easiest to use for registering moves and initial setup.
This is the kit that allows you to transform a favorite photograph into a framed canvas painting. After receiving the kit, you either mail traditional prints or e-mail a digital picture to the art house who crops the photograph to align it with the proportions of the canvas you indicate.
Enhances color and cleans the print to remove dust and scratches, and then, using a specialized stylus and tablet, replicates the image on canvas with the textured look of brushstrokes, sweeps, and daubs of a real portrait.
This pair of dumbbells can be quickly adjusted to weigh between 5 and 25 lbs., saving space by exchanging 10 dumbbells for two.
Each dumbbell has eight 2 1/2 lb. chrome-plated steel plates that attach to each 5 lb. handle bar using an internal slider system. Turning the knob allows you to select any 2 1/2 lb. increment up to a total of 25 lbs.; unselected plates remain in the weight tray.
Made by the renowned Hohner instrument company founded in Germany in 1857, this is the Harponette, a single-reed harmonica that produces warm, mellifluous sound.
Manufactured entirely in Trossingen, home of the original Hohner factory and the German Harmonica Museum, the Richter-type harmonica is designed in the key of C-major, providing sonorous, diatonic tones, thanks to its 20 reeds and brass reedplates.
This is a genuine Irish Bodhrán--pronounced "Bow-rawn"--the traditional percussion instrument used in Gaelic music for centuries.
Handcrafted in Connemara along Ireland's west coast, each unique instrument is made by Malachy Kearns, an artisan with 30 years of experience who operates out of an old Franciscan monastery and who crafted the original River Dance stage drums.
These 10 plush glove puppets--sized for a child's hand--are crafted with meticulous attention to detail that make them appear more life-like than other puppets of their kind.
Each puppet is decorated in high-contrast colors with moving limbs and characteristics unique to each animal, such as multiple legs for insects and a spider, the tusks of a walrus, and a cow's udders. Large enough for adult hands, they are hand-stitched using cotton thread and crafted from soft, non-toxic and hypoallergenic plush.
These racing shoes--deemed illegal by the USA Track & Field for providing an unfair advantage to athletes--have two shock-absorbing springs in the forefoot that relieve the stress and fatigue of running better than any shoe available. The shoes' patented springs return up to 96% of the energy from each stride that would otherwise be lost to the ground.
The downward force deflected and dispersed during each impact is recycled to the wearer as propulsive energy, further reducing the strain on the feet and reducing overall recovery time. Unlike the gels used for cushioning on other athletic shoes, these springs will never break down or degrade.
This is the regulation-sized and weight pool cue with a built-in laser that provides a precise guide for lining up shots. The laser extends from a small hole in the tip of the cue 6' (won't impact play) to cover every possible angle and length of shot. The touch sensor on/off switch features both manual and automatic shutoff to preserve battery life.
Made from graphite and fiberglass that will not warp over time, the 58" long, two-piece cue has a rubber bumper, comfortable wound-foam handle, and a stainless steel joint and ferrule.
This remote controlled ornithopter--the world's smallest--was inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's concept drawing from the late 15th century.
As small as a ruby-throated hummingbird, this miniature marvel sustains flight by flapping its wings 40 times a second, not with propellers or rotors like ordinary toy aircraft. Digital proportional flight control enables smooth turns, climbs, and dives with the dual-stick remote.
The ornithopter's frame is sturdy, lightweight plastic, with tear-resistant mylar covering the wings and tail.
It's one of evolution's most eccentric creations: a head shaped like a hammer. Now, a study suggests that the hammerhead shark may have evolved its oddly shaped snout to boost the animal's vision and hunting prowess.
For over a century, scientists have speculated why hammerheads evolved such an odd shape and whether having eyes so far apart would enhance their vision. In 1942 a leading authority on sharks, Gordon Walls, suggested the position of the shark's eyes prevented it from having binocular vision. But others have argued exactly the opposite, saying the animals must have enhanced eyesight.
I am all for throwing people in jail for even watching the new Twilight movie (regardless whether they pirated it or not), but this story is just way over the top.
Taping three minutes of "Twilight: New Moon" during a visit to a Rosemont movie theater landed Samantha Tumpach in a jail cell for two nights. Now, the 22-year-old Chicago woman faces up to three years in prison after being charged with a rarely invoked felony designed to prevent movie patrons from recording hot new movies and selling bootleg copies.
Unlike lesser binoculars with fixed focus cameras, these 8X magnification binoculars use special focusing technology that sharpens subjects simultaneously on its integrated 5 megapixel digital camera, ensuring clear images and video. They have fully multi-coated, 30mm objective lenses and use a Bak-4 prism system for superior optical performance, yielding a 320' field of view at 1,000 yards.
This device automatically tracks your daily movements and sleep cycles to help determine if you are getting enough exercise and sleep. Similar to NASA technology that monitors astronauts in space, the device's integrated accelerometer monitors the intensity and duration of movements, tracks steps taken and distance traveled, and calculates calories burned--even during activities that do not require walking.
The sensor fits into the included wristband while you sleep and tracks tiny tremors in the wrist to determine how long it took you to fall asleep, how often you woke up, and how long you were actually asleep, not just lying in bed. When the device is within 15' of the charging station, it automatically uploads information to the manufacturer's website, where your readings are displayed on timelines and graphs.
This is the family room dart board cabinet that allows up to eight players to compete with electronic scoring. Housed in a sturdy MDF cabinet that extends only 12" from a wall, the officially sized, 18"-diameter target has a nylon playing surface that accommodates plastic-tip darts.
Its scoring sections are separated by dividers that minimize bounce-outs. After a quick, initial 15-minute setup, you can begin playing any of the dartboard's 24 games with 132 level variations.
Evoking the microphones used by broadcasters in radio's golden age, this is the spherical USB condenser microphone that transforms your home office into a recording studio. It captures clean digital sound comparable to microphones used in professional studios, making it ideal for podcasts, voice or musical instrument recording, video conferencing, or voice-over-IP telephony.
It has two selectable polar patterns: cardioid, allowing it to pick up sounds directly in front at full volume (and sounds behind it at diminished volume) or omnidirectional, allowing it to pick up sounds at equal volume at 360º.

This is the coffee table with a built-in foosball game. Made from solid poplar, the table stands 20" high, allowing you to sit comfortably or kneel while grasping your team's three hand-carved, solid wood control rod handles.
You can maneuver your forwards, mid-fielders, and defenders with precision--their stout polypropylene construction enables them to withstand the hardest of shots as you move to protect your goal.
The playing field uses offset light and dark hardwood veneers, decorated with the details of a soccer pitch--center circle and spot, half-way line, and penalty spot. A tempered glass top keeps the ball in-play.
Mulholland’s classified manuals were supposed to have been destroyed in 1973, but a copy was discovered in 2007 among declassified CIA archives by intelligence historian H. Keith Melton and retired CIA officer Robert Wallace, who wrote the historical overview for the book.
Rather than a dashing, James Bond-type figure, Mulholland described the ideal agent as anonymous, bland, and “so normal in manner, and his actions so natural, that nothing about him excites suspicion.”
Not only is this high-tech Christmas tree energy efficient, it is also good for you. Now, if we could just get a version of this tree that runs on the pedal-power of one person, we would have a cool Christmas tree that gives grandma something to do while we open presents.
The 700 LED lights on this particular city's Christmas tree are not connected to any sort of traditional power outlet, instead relying completely on volunteers pushing the pedals of some stationary bicycles.
These men are beating each other senseless using fluorescent tube light bulbs as weapons. This is apparently a sport in Japan.

Blake Fall-Conroy's "Minimum Wage Machine" is a penny-dispensing Rube Goldberg machine that "allows anybody to work for minimum wage."
The minimum wage machine allows anybody to work for minimum wage. Turning the crank will yield one penny every 5.04 seconds, for $7.15 an hour (NY state minimum wage). If the participant stops turning the crank, they stop receiving money. The machine's mechanism and electronics are powered by the hand crank, and pennies are stored in a plexiglas box.
