Scientists have just discovered how to store a 30-character password in your subconscious. A computer generates a random code using the letters S,D,F,J, and K. Then it makes it into a guitar hero game…without the music. As the dots on the top of the screen come to the dots on the bottom, you press the corresponding key. To mix it up, they added extra characters that are not in the password. You repeat this process six times (each time the extra characters are different). Over time, your brain will know which letters are in the password and which ones are extra letters without you consciously knowing that you’re remembering it. Using this technique, you can’t be coerced into giving a password because you consciously don’t know it. It’s in the part of the mind that can store information but can’t be tapped by the conscious part of your brain. Crazy stuff. Check out the source for a deeper explanation.
Found this really cool site called ‘The Art of Splash’. Corrie White has been practicing the art form of capturing water splashes with different colored dyes. The pictures in the slideshow are some examples of her photography. Check out her site at the link.
Margaret Oomen was looking for a way to store her spoons in Home Depot when a light bulb appeared over her head (figuratively). She bought some chalkboard paint and a pegboard. Then she just painted the pegboard, and hung all her spoons on it. The end result is the image above. I thought it was a really smart solution and it looks really cool.
This is sorta similar to the Danbo post that I did a while ago because this also originated from Japan and he is the masot of Japan’s broadcasting organization. You can find him as a plush toy or maybe hanging on a keychain. The craze has died down a bit, but the little guy is still making waves across the internet by being photographed doing funny stuff. Check out some example pictures in the gallery above.
Nik Wallenda is the first of his family members to perform a mega stunt in a very long time and he has singlehandedly brought the Wallenda name back into public consciousness. Earlier today, he successfully completed a walk on a tightrope from Buffalo, New York to Niagara Falls, Ontario. He’s officially announced that his next challenge will be crossing the grand canyon.

Twitter has changed their logo from the little bird to a “sharper” version and they have it facing slightly upwards. This may be to represent them trying to go up. A twitter user by the name of The Nerdery discovered that you can make the twitter logo into Batman by just turning the logo 90°. Check it out below.
Danbo (which means “cardboard” in japanese) is Amazon’s “Papercraft Mascot”. He’s been making waves over the internet the past few months and it seems to have originated from Japan since the writing on his head says “amazon.co.jp”. If you want to see some pictures of him, check out the gallery above.
