Watch This Girl Build Her Own Prosthetic Leg Out Of LEGO Pieces
It’s awesome watching this girl scavenge for all the right pieces (a feeling I’m sure we’re all familiar with), and become  increasingly delighted at her progress. See for yourself.

The uploader, AmputeeOT, says:

Someone in my research lab jokingly suggested I make a prosthetic leg out of legos.
Please don’t do this yourself, I don’t want you to fall and get hurt!
Sometimes, you just need to be silly.

Could you imagine a world where half LEGO cyber amazon warrior women roam the Earth? Sounds like a plot for an action-packed, sexy pulp comic/my dreams come true.

NGC 5139: Omega Centauri
The name “Omega Centauri” should hint that this particular cluster is quite special. As viewed from Earth, Omega Cen (as it is often called) is certainly one of the most dazzling of globular clusters that orbits our galaxy. Before the use of good telescopes (and optics) this cluster was known as a “star” in the constellation of Centaurus (and hence the name). However, under a dark sky this cluster certainly hints at more. It takes on the appearence of fuzzy patch of light- not unlike many other closer star clusters (M41, M44, M35, etc). However, at a distance of 20,000 lights years away, it is only due to the sheer number of stars- easily more than 500,000- that we can see it this easily. A telescopic view reveals the sparkling glitter shown to the left. From Kitt Peak, this cluster barely climbs more than 10 degrees above the horizon. As such, the image quality isn’t great- but the overall impression of this cluster is maintained. Interestingly, Omega Cen is one of the few clusters that is currently passing directly through the plane of our galaxy. (via Noao)

A Computer Programmer’s Wife Asks Him to Go To The Store

dascola:

tj:

passius:

A wife asks her husband, a computer programmer, “Would you please go to the store for me and buy a carton of milk?   And if they have eggs, get six.”

A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, “Why the hell did you buy 6 cartons of milk?”

He replied, “They had eggs.”

Now that’s funny.

Wait a second, computer programmers have a sense of humor?
