Geek Trivia: How low can you go?

What do you get when you combine a nuclear explosive, several hundred thousand tons of molten iron, a stockpile of grapefruit-size spherical high-temperature probes, and access to the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO)?

Why, the world's most ambitious geophysical experiment, of course. You simply use the nuclear explosive to blast open a hole in the Earth's crust, pour in a cocktail of molten iron and probe spheres, and use LIGO to monitor the vibratory feedback of the injected metals as they sink quickly to the Earth's core -- 3,000 kilometers below.

Caltech scientist David J. Stevenson suggested this super-scale measure to probe the Earth's core. But don't think this makes Stevenson a maverick; scientists have been aching to poke massive holes in the Earth's crust for decades.

The probe concept is an offshoot of a Russian scheme called Hot Drop. This project envisioned bundling nuclear waste in large tungsten balls, superheating the spheres to 1,200 degrees Celsius, and then allowing the tungsten constructs to melt through the Earth's crust and into the mantle, where the radioactive material could decay safely.

Needless to say, the Hot Drop concept met resistance from several environmental and political groups, all of whom contend that importing, stockpiling, boiling, and dumping nuclear waste might be a risky proposition.

Still, to give the Russians credit, they are the undisputed kings of deep hole drilling. In fact, the deepest hole ever dug is the result of a Russian effort to probe extreme-depth geology.

Extinction of the Redhead!

Goodbye to my kind!

The current National Geographic magazine reports that less than two per cent of the world's population has natural red hair, created by a mutation in northern Europe thousands of years ago.

Global intermingling, which broadens the availability of possible partners, has reduced the chances of redheads meeting and producing little redheads of their own.

Some experts say that redheads could be gone as early as 2060, but others say the gene can be dormant for generations before returning.

National Geographic says the gene at first had the beneficial effect of increasing the body's ability to make vitamin D from sunlight.

However, today's carriers are more prone to skin cancer and have a higher sensitivity to heat and cold-related pain.

The Truth Behind the Haiti UFO Videos

If you surf the web regularly or are a YouTube junkie then you have definitely seen the Haiti UFO videos that have been circling around the net. If you were like me you wanted to know the origins of these videos and to see if they are valid. Personally, from the start I figured that they were a hoax but you never know. Many believed that they were part of some new viral video hoax for Halo 3, Invasion or maybe even J.J. Abrams new movie project, but no one knew for sure. Check out the video and then hear the truth.....


L.A. Times: It came from outer space

....The next morning, with all the good leads exhausted and most hope lost, the telephone rang.

It was a woman named Sam. From Corsica. "Hello," she said. "I am calling on behalf of barzolff814."

Barzolff814? Why, he was the person who had posted the No. 1 Haiti video!

Barzolff, Sam said, wished to remain anonymous, but he was prepared to share the full story of the videos. I agreed not to reveal his real name. Then I was all ears as Sam began parroting into the phone the words I could hear Barzolff saying in the background.

The 35-year-old Barzolff is a professional animator who attended one of the most prestigious art schools in France and has a decade of experience with computer graphics and commercial animation.

It took Barzolff a total of 17 hours to make both the Haiti and Dominican Republic videos. He did it all by himself using a MacBook Pro and a suite of commercially available 3-D animation programs, including Vue 6. The videos are 100% computer-generated.

The videos, he said, were intended as research for a feature film project he's been working on with Partizan, the France-based production company responsible for, among others, Michel Gondry's "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind."

When contacted to verify the story, "Eternal Sunshine" producer Georges Bermann said it was all true, and that Barzolff was "an absolute genius" who could "make anything look entirely real."

To prove that he was truly behind the videos, Barzolff agreed to provide the L.A. Times with a new spacecraft video. Called "Proof," the video depicts a small version of one of the spacecraft floating above a Paris street. As the camera pans over, the viewer sees two elderly women at a cafe, one of whom is holding a remote control device. Humorously, of course, this video makes use of computer graphics as well.

The movie Barzolff is working on for the big screen is about two guys who create a UFO hoax so realistic that it spirals out of their control. "For better or worse," said Barzolff, who cited being "overwhelmed" by the response to his video as one of the reasons he didn't want to go public with his name.

Barzolff stressed the videos were not intended as a viral marketing ploy. His movie is still in the idea phase, and he created the hoax strictly as a "sociological experiment" -- in other words, just to see what would happen...


....And here is the "Proof" video from Barzolff814

Deezer: The Legal and Free On-Demand Music Service

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketI ran across this site yesterday via Tech Crunch and decided to check it out. BlogMusik or now Deezer, is a free and now legal website to search for and stream mp3 songs online. So what is so great about this site? Personally I hate it when I am listening to my Yahoo! Music account or Pandora account and I get a "recommended" song that just plain sucks and is no where near my interests. Deezer eliminates that by letting you setup your favorite songs in playlists. I registered, loaded a few favorite songs from some favorite artists and was listening to a great playlist in no time. There is one downfall I have noticed but I am not sure it is their fault...some of the songs do not load quick enough so you get sudden stops in your songs. Anyways, I think I may have found my new online music source

Google Sky

Google has launched Sky for Google Earth, new functionality that adds imagery of the stars to Google Earth’s already extensive imagery of our planet.

According to Google, the new functionality allows users to “explore the universe from the comfort of your chair.” Users can zoom in on galaxies hundreds of millions of light years away, explore the constellations and even witness a supernova explosion.

The space imagery includes over one million photographs from various sources, including the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, the Palomar Observatory at the California Institute of Technology and the Hubble Telescope.

It’s often said that Google Earth and Google Maps took Cartography to the masses, Sky could well do the same for Astronomy.

To access Sky, users must download the latest version of Google Earth.

Geek Trivia: Rule of dumb

Colonel Joseph Kittinger is emblematic of two things: The fine line between brave and crazy, and the enduring significance of Murphy's Law. Kittinger is perhaps best known as the United States Air Force officer who was bold enough to be the lead test subject for Project Excelsior, otherwise known as "that crazy stunt where the astronaut dude skydived out of a balloon at the edge of space."

That dude was Kittinger. On Aug. 16, 1960, he leapt from a balloon at an altitude of 102,800 feet and achieved a descent velocity of over 600 miles per hour -- thus, the crazy vs. brave debate.

The Murphy's Law part comes in when you note that the glove of Kittinger's pressure suit leaked during the descent, and he severely injured his hand. While that may seem insignificant given all the potential risks, bear in mind this was Kittinger's third high-altitude balloon jump.

On the first one, he slipped in a 22-G flat spin and blacked out, with only a self-deploying parachute saving him from certain death. Still, Kittinger was gutsy enough to try two more -- higher -- jumps, and he still couldn't get his gear working correctly.

Of course, that didn't stop Kittinger, who did three combat tours in Vietnam after his Excelsior days, finally getting shot down on May 11, 1972 and spending 11 months in the infamous Hanoi Hilton prisoner of war camp. Like Murphy's Law says: "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong."

But it seems as if Murphy's Law took an extra-special interest in Colonel Kittinger. If so, it's probably because the contemporary incarnation of Murphy's Law -- including the name Murphy's Law -- has some direct ties to Kittinger himself.

Codified pessimism has been around since time immemorial, but the verbal shorthand for probable disaster, Murphy's Law, was coined by Kittinger's fellow Air Force officer and insanely brave test subject, Colonel John Paul Stapp -- the one-time Fastest Man on Earth.

It was Stapp who rode rocket sleds at Edwards Air Force Base in the late 1940s as part of research into the effect of g-forces on humans -- with Kittinger flying an observational chase plane. It was during these borderline suicidal rocket sled tests that Stapp coined the phrase Murphy's Law -- after an equipment failure as frustrating as any Kittinger might later endure -- and named it after an actual person named Murphy.

WHO IS THE NAMESAKE FOR MURPHY'S LAW?
