    This is a two minute video of a ton (okay, maybe a pound) of hummingbirds swarming a bunch of feeders in some guy's front yard. I love hummingbirds. I also love this guy's commentary. He sounds like he would make a good neighbor. The kind of guy you could borrow a cup of su... / Continue →

    This is a video from Africa of an ostrich chasing cyclists down the road at speeds nearing 30MPH. For reference, that is faster than I can bike unless I just biked off a cliff. Ostriches can run FAST. If you're ever being chased by an ostrich the best thing to do is stop and... / Continue →

    This is a video from a recent exposition by the Verbeke Foundation in Kemzeke, Belgium. As part of the installation, they've hooked up a decaying human finger and a dead parakeet to voltmeters that translate the readings into freaky deaky background music. You get to listen ... / Continue →
