This is a video of a technician climbing up to the top of a transmission tower to do some maintenance work. I always assumed there were specific tools or safety precautions in place to protect them, but nope, they just climb up, dragging their toolbox on a rope behind them. No harnesses or anything. Well at least they get helmets. Safety first folks.

new twitter

The new Twitter. Click for bigger.

In a push to get people to actually use their site, Twitter has unveiled a new site redesign with a dual panel layout allowing easier and more intuitive navigation. Now you can click on an individual tweet and see more info about it, as well as any replies or retweets. It makes a lot more sense than the old version, which navigationally was like stumbling around a junkyard whilst trying to not get stabbed by sharp rusty things. Now any media in a tweet will play on the right panel without the user needing to navigate away from the site.

Video of it in action after the jump.

Lady Gaga’s meat dress.
It is a dress, made of meat. I suppose I will let the picture explain itself, there’s not much else really.

Trapped Miners
Other than the fact that this infographic is supposedly written in the future (September 20, 2010), it does provide an interesting insight into the plight of the trapped Chilean miners. Thirty three miners have three holes – their sole key to survival. No sun, fresh air, their whole world are these 3 holes.
