COME FIND ME ON SOCIAL NETWORKS

Hello Internet…

Firstly I would like to apologise for not posting the last 2 months!

Things have been pretty manic with work, as I am sure most of you can agree!

So after much deliberation I have decided to stop creating original blog posts for everything I find for your wanting eyes.

 

HOWEVER…

I will still be sharing everything I find through my other Social Networks instead,  I feel this way I can bring you more content and spare you my terrible writing skills!

Spaxels – Drones Equipped with LED’s Create Art in the Sky

I think this might be the future of fireworks displays, no explosions that deafen animals and almost no carbon footprint.

Spaxels were unveiled in 2012, these quadcopters are equipped with LED’s and can communicate with each other to create spectacular displays in the night sky.

Scroll to bottom fort video.

30 Things I’ve Learned in 30 Years!

I recently turned 30, and if this were Ancient Rome I would be a wise old man.

So I’ve decided to share 30 things I have learned either through my own mistakes/experiences or through those that have influenced me along the way: (In no particular order)

1. You are never too old to learn something new

2. Spend more time with your family

3. Only you can change the narrative of your life

4. If you are in your twenties, party hard while you can because the hangovers last a minimum of 2 days!

5. The internet isn’t your psychologist, don’t air your dirty laundry there

6. Take lots of “formal” photos at family events, you’ll appreciate them in the future

7. Travel as much as you can, anywhere, everywhere

8. Start saving now, it’s never too late

9. Walk around barefoot outside regularly

10. You are only as old as you feel

11. Nothing happens over night

12. Enjoy sunset and sunrise in that order without sleeping

13. Get out of your comfort zone regularly

14. Sleep under the stars at least once

15. Talk to strangers sometimes (not if you are a toddler)

16. Travel overnight on a train

17. Listen to as much music as you can

18. Regardless who you are, you are no better or worse than anyone…. You have just been born into different circumstances

19. Only YOU can make yourself happy

20. Exercise and eat well, healthy body, healthy mind

21. Appreciate the little things like the clouds or the smell of rain

22. Love EVERYONE!!

23. Be yourself

24. Don’t worry about what others think of you

25. Live with purpose

26. Being alone is not the same as being lonely

27. Listen to old peoples stories

28. Respect other people’s traditions and beliefs

29. Read more books

30. Be open to change

 

Why Weed Legalisation Could be Bad for Stoners

In this video from Cracked a case is made by an apparent stoner, as to why full legalisation could be bad for stoners.

He makes a few valid points however I still feel that legalisation is definitely the way forward so people can enjoy themselves and get medicinal benefits without fearing arrest.

Watch the video here.

The World’s First “Micro-Cycle”

If I told you there was a vehicle that was somewhere between a Segway and a unicycle, would be imagining a clown riding it?

Well, the RYNO is the complete opposite, in fact its actually pretty bad-ass.

Engineer Chris Hoffmann spent 7 years designing this after his daughter asked if it was possible to make a one wheeled motorbike!

The RYNO balances itself front-to-back, but relies on the rider to maintain side-to-side balance because of the single wheel. Leaning forward and backward controls acceleration and deceleration, while leaning to the side makes the vehicle turn in a smooth arc.

And for a small fee of $5 295.00 it can yours!

This is Where Airline Staff Get it ON!

I’m sure we have all wondered where the staff on a plane sleep on a long haul flight. I just assumed they had normal chairs like us and blasted a couple lines of coke to keep so perky.

I was wrong…
