Last week, amateur Polish photographer
Bartosz Wojczyński combined an amazing 32,000 images to create a super
high-resolution picture of the moon. It took only 28 minutes to take the
photos from his balcony in Piekary Śląskie, but the total file size
for the photos was a whopping 73.5 gigabytes. Wojczyński spent 5-6 hours
combining the images.
Moon photography is an old art. John
William Draper was the first person to take a picture of the full moon,
175 years ago. While Wojczyński spent $3500 on his equipment, Draper
used a simple daguerreotype camera to capture his subject. You can
compare Draper’s photo with Wojczyński’s photo to see how far we’ve come.
And while Draper’s photo was black and
white, Wojczyński used advanced image acquisition and processing
techniques to color the photo. He told PetaPixel that he had to map
violet and infrared images of the moon to blue and red channels in the
final shot. Bored Panda

I SEE YOU
I don’t think this is the bird you identified for me SO AWESOMELY. What do you think?
That’s a male House Sparrow, Passer domesticus. Those are also House Sparrows you can hear vocalizing, though it’s not clear to me that we’re hearing the little dude we’re seeing.

For decades, paleontologists have puzzled over a fossil collection of nine Triassic icthyosaurs (Shonisaurus popularis) discovered in Nevada’s Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park. Researchers initially thought that this strange grouping of 45-foot-long marine reptiles had either died en masse from a poisonous plankton bloom or had become stranded in shallow water.

“The relationship between Max and Furiosa is a thing of beauty, and occupies a category all its own in the history of cinematic pairings.
The dialogue is as sparse as water or greenery in Miller’s ravaged wasteland — but, though we’re never told, we understand that Hardy’s Max isn’t so much mad as hurting. So is Theron’s character, and each offers the other something that will always be too scarce in this world — compassion.” (X)

Look at her. She just had a brush with death. What better way to connect with the fragility of life than a reminder that your body is merely a sack of bones and blood? She’ll call her parents and tell them about the incident. She’ll post about it on Facebook. She’ll get a lot of Likes. People will appreciate her more. And she’ll appreciate life just a little bit more. Being reminded that it can all be stripped away from you in just one instant, that’s a gift.

Ryan Bailey’s brain is too full of marriage wisdom to take in any sports knowledge. That’s why the crew brings in Jay Ellis from BET’s The Game to help Ryan learn the plays and run the drills that will help him get the football of love into the endzone of happiness. Or the hospital.
Just dudes being dudes. Plus Tiffany.

“Well, when we started what became this record, Deb had been diagnosed and we were like, “Well, what are we gonna do? What do you wanna do? This could be the worst year and then end.” Because stage three is serious – beyond serious, if you look at statistics. She was like, “I swear I just want to homeschool the kids, hang out with everybody here, and let’s work. Let’s write and record whenever I can.” So we did.”
