What's Keeping You Awake at Night?

Maybe it's too much screen time before bed, maybe it's too hot, but there's always the possibility it's our own brains who are disturbing our sleep. Those psychological questions you spend so much time avoiding during the day can try to come up when you are asleep, and it's hard to process them properly while sleeping. If we put some time into self-care, confronting the thoughts ideas, and emotions we tend to avoid during our conscious time, it might help us sleep better at night. At least that's an idea from The School of Life you can try. Or at least think about trying. (via Laughing Squid)

Prank by Steven Spielberg

For director Richard Donner, shooting The Goonies was draining. He loved the kids, but working with a whole gang of them was stressful and exhausting. After the production wrapped, Donner took off to Hawaii for some rest and relaxation away from chaotic, energetic children.

Steven Spielberg, who wrote the story and helped out with direction during the shoot, had a brainstorm and arranged for all the child actors, and a few of the adults, too, to surprise Donner in Hawaii. Spielberg had them all flown over to the island to surprise Donner, and made sure it was caught on camera.

If Donner was at all bothered by the surprise, he hid it well, and graciously welcomed the cast. You can hear one of the kids saying they would stay with him the whole time he was there, but I don't believe that's what ultimately happened. It probably gave Donner pause at the time. (via Fark)

Studying Explosions

The University of Sheffield Department of Civil and Structural Engineering has a Blast Laboratory. That's where scientists and engineers go to have a blast -literally. They study and measure explosions with some really impressive equipment that not only precisely measure what's going on during a detonation, but must also survive to relay that information.  

Tom Scott visited the Blast Laboratory to ask how explosives work, which is a great excuse for a video, but we all know he went there to watch them blow stuff up. In this video, you can, too, without having to buy a ticket to a Hollywood film. Those explosions are mostly CGI these days, but at the Blast Laboratory, they are real. However, these are for science, not for show. The explosion they perform in this video goes so fast that you can't really see it until they play back the high speed recording. How high speed? How about 250,000 frames per second!

Phone Addiction Kinetic Sculpture

JBV Creative explores the intersection of art and engineering. He's a mechanical engineer who gave in to his creative side. In his latest project, he built a kinetic sculpture to show the way humans look when we are all staring at our phones while going about the day's business. In this video, he shows us how and why he did it. Skip ahead to the 12-minute mark to see the finished artwork in action. The figures, which he calls "buddies," might remind you of Weebles if you are Gen X, because they wobble but they don't fall down. If you are a Baby Boomer, you will no doubt recognize the shape of a schmoo. (via the Awesomer)

Night Attack

This sequence might discourage people from getting their first cat, but it doesn't have to be this way. In the discussion at reddit, many cat owners advise these folks to try synching their cat's sleep schedule to yours. To do this, you have to annoy the cat while it's trying to take naps during the day. Turnabout is fair play, after all.

But also notice that the man, on the right, is likely to push the cat away. The woman, on the other hand, sometimes pushes, but is just as likely to ignore the poking or even pet the cat in her sleep. That's why the cat approaches her more than it approaches the man. She's training the cat to seek a possible reward.

Another idea for solving this problem is to get another cat. Two cats readily learn that they can go to each other to avoid boredom in the night.

A Space Launch with 1,000 LEGO Astronauts

The Slovakian marketing group Kreativ Gang collaborated with LEGO to perform a cool stunt. They 3D printed miniature space shuttles and launched 1,000 LEGO astronauts into space! They made three launches from Malé Bielice Airport near Partizánské in Slovakia, each carrying about a third of the "Legonauts," which took them 22 miles up to the edge of space by balloon. When the balloon burst, the minifigs went into free fall until a parachute opened. It was a bit tricky, because the shuttles had no roofs. They wanted to the Legonauts to be exposed to space.

The launches went off without a hitch on May 20, and the Legonauts ended up back on earth... somewhere. When the project team has been all gathered up, they will offer them as prizes in a sweepstakes open to people in the Czech Republic and Slovakia who buy a new LEGO set.

Mother Moose

We mere humans often don't realize how large moose are until we see them in relation to something else. A hungry bear would love to feast on moose meat, but the full-grown moose is much bigger than the bear. But she has two young calves. The bear would have a much easier time with one of those tasty young calves, but their mama will defend those calves with her life!

The bear doesn't want to give up, though, and keeps making his moves in between retreating up a tree. The people recording this interaction a couple of weeks ago in Anchorage are safely far away, as you can see from the camera movement and refocusing. It's a good thing, too, because these are two very dangerous animals. They don't tell us how the whole episode ended; we can assume the animals moved out of camera range. We hope the bear gave up and decided to go fishing instead. (via Digg)

Cat Toys Dancing to Ievan Polkka

Stop-motion artist tomosteen went viral a year ago with his dancing cat pen holders, a popular accessory in Japan. He's only collected more of them since, and now has a huge production number featuring them. The wonder of this video is how he manages to get inarticulate figures to shake their booties as if they really have joints. The cats, who only move when tomosteen is away from them, learn a new song and dance from an alien, but it's Ievan Pollkka, a song quite familiar to all of us. The original two cats are joined by others until an entire zoo is dancing!

The Slow-Mo Guys Have a 6-Foot Water Balloon

Gavin Free and Dan Gruchy, the Slow-Mo Guys, know how to have some summer fun. They've played with water balloons before, but this year they're going all out, with a 6-foot balloon, rigged up with a high-speed camera and lights inside! The idea was that Dan (it's always Dan) would slide down a wet tarp right into it, bursting the balloon, and they would have some cool footage. Dan even rigged up a device to make sure the balloon actually burst instead of just acting like a brick wall he was slamming his head into. If you just want to see the slide, skip ahead to the nine-minute mark, but the rest of it is pretty amusing, too. (via Digg)

Meerkat Triplets

The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute in Washington, DC, welcomed the arrival of meerkat triplets on May 10, the first time they've had three born at once in 16 years. The mother, Sadie, is five years old and the father is 6-year-old Frankie. Their brood is the result of the institute's careful selective breeding to ensure genetic diversity. The National Zoo keeps their meerkats together in a "mob" as they would be in nature. Their enclosure has constructed burrows that mimic those in the wild. Sadie gave birth in the burrow, as expected, but in the wild, the newborns would stay hidden for about three weeks. However, Sadie wanted to show off her babies, and brought them out into the exhibit area the same day they were born!

Sadie has been observed nursing the pups, so they are assumed to be healthy. Zookeepers will not handle the pups for some time, so their sex is still unknown. Read more about the new meerkat pups at Zooborns.

That's Your

Electric Car Goes Dangerously Fast

When electric car first became available, they were described as useful for running errands around town, but not for road trips. Later models proved that wrong, but many car enthusiasts doubted that electrics would ever be used for hauling (and now they are) or racing. Then a small auto company in Croatia, Rimac Automobili, introduced the electric hypercar Rimac Nevera.

Automann-TV takes the 1913 horsepower Rimac Nevera out on the Autobahn to check out its acceleration potential, specifically how fast it can go from 100 km/h to 200 km/h (62 mph to 124 mph). Can its four electric motors and 120 kilowatt battery keep up? You betcha, and it only takes three second to go from 100 to 200.

Somehow, I get the feeling that this supercar is not so much about saving the environment (and how could it at those speeds), but more about proving that electric cars can and do perform as well as gas guzzlers on the racetrack. This may sway some who feel internal combustion engines should be kept around for specialty uses. (via Born in Space)

Time Travel Food

Jon Townshend is an expert on life in colonial America, particularly the food that people ate. In his latest video, he imagines going the opposite direction. Instead of bringing 18th century food into the modern era, how about sending modern food back to the early United States? For example, how would you introduce an Egg McMuffin to John Adams? You'd make each component using familiar colonial techniques. Made from scratch, it has to be good! It certainly has more sausage than you'd ever get at McDonald's. With pancakes on the side, no less.

But that's not the only time Jon has used his "time machine." Watch him prepare a hamburger for Ben Franklin  and a pizza for George Washington at TastyTastic. (via Nag on the Lake)

Nine Urban Legends Based on True Stories

Horror stories always grab us, whether they are stories told around a campfire at night or horror films at your local theater. They become extra scary when the campfire tale ends with "...and every word of it is true." Or if the movie is advertised as "Based on real events." But how true are they? Strangely, the biggest and longest-lived urban legends grew from real events, although they happened quite some time ago and have been embellished over time. The embellishments make them more exciting, but the kernel of truth underneath makes them terrifying. Weird History looks at the truth behind the origins of nine urban legends you might have heard.

Stunt by Accident

You've seen this stunt performed in movies before, and probably on The Dukes of Hazzard several times. When it happens in real life, the outcome can be much worse. The above is a police bodycam footage from an incident near Valdosta, Georgia. Lowndes County sheriff's deputies were making an arrest on the side of a highway on May 24, and had a tow truck ready to impound a car. But a driver didn't see the activity going on and drove up the tow truck ramp at a high speed. The car launched into the air off the front of the truck, flew about 120 feet, and crashed into another car. The driver was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The only other injury was to a police officer hit by flying debris.

Warning: this video may be nightmare-inducing. Or you might just find it hilarious. We know artificial intelligence algorithms are pretty good for writing an essay or producing an illustration for you, but it doesn't do all that well recreating real living animals moving the way animals should. I don't know what program was used to make this video of dogs, but the producer should ask for his money back. From a different YouTuber, here's a cat video generated by an algorithm.

T. Rex Was a Coward at Times

We think of T. rex as the king of dinosaurs, instilling terror into everything around it. But that wasn't necessarily so. In this scene from the TV series Prehistoric Planet, we see a Tyrannosaurus rex munching on the carcass of a  sauropod dinosaur. But when he's confronted by a 20-foot-tall pterosaur species called Quetzalcoatlus, he has to consider his own safety. Quetzalcoatlus isn't as massive or as strong as the T. rex, but he sure is pointy. But how do scientists know what would have happened in such a scenario? It's a combination of anatomical studies of those species, plus knowledge of how predators of many different existent species behave. Dinosaurs may not have had large brains, but they knew how to calculate their odds well enough, or they wouldn't have survived as long as they did. Read an explanation of how this scenario was determined at BBC Science Focus. (via Real Clear Science)

Finders Keepers

To Scale: TIME

When we think of time, we think of our daily schedules or maybe a lifetime. But the human mind has a hard time grasping the history of the universe, and the relative blink of an eye that humanity has been around. The 300,000 years that homo sapiens has existed is the main focus of what we call history, and that seems like a long time.

Alex Gorosh and Wylie Overstreet built a timeline of the universe out in the Mojave desert, the only place they could build something that big. But the history of mankind had to be built to a different scale than the 13-billion-year history of the universe before we came along; otherwise, all of human history would be too small to even label. This video tries to explain the concept of that long, long time. (via Kottke)

Four Epidemics That Didn't Happen

You remember the terrifying outbreak of Ebola virus in 2013, but do you recall the Ebola outbreak of 2021? That's probably because you were more concerned with COVID-19 by then, but it was also because health care professionals had a plan in place to stop Ebola in its tracks by 2021. While the world was dealing with the massive COVID-19 pandemic, several other epidemics were averted by public health systems and rapid response, and that's worth celebrating. The world has learned a lot about fighting diseases in a population, but it takes political will and government funds to keep those systems in place and ready to go to work when needed.

Historical Hairdos

Hair styles, like clothing, go through trends and fads that sometimes make us look back and say, "What was I thinking?" I've had bangs, mullets, Jheri curls, pixies, and purple hair, but all those pale in comparison to some of the hairstyle fads of history. Some were an attempt at beauty or cutting-edge fashion, while others signified status, either officially or unofficially. Weird History takes us on a ride through time by highlighting some of the more memorable or consequential hairstyles of various places and historical eras.

Keeping Up with the Joneses

The phrase "keeping up with the Joneses" is familiar to most of us, and implies the sad but ubiquitous habit of comparing ourselves to those around us. We end up buying and showing off things we cannot afford just to keep up with those who can afford it, and show that we, too, are worthy of status. This applies to houses more than anything else. But who were these enviable Joneses, and what were they showing off?

That would be Elizabeth Jones, a staunch advocate of conspicuous consumption, and her lovely summer home in New York. The house, called Wyndcliffe, sat on 80 acres and was so grand that the area around it near the town of Rhinebeck on the Hudson River became hot property as others tried to, ahem, "keep up with the Joneses." That's where the familiar phrase came from. You might be interested in seeing this grand house and learning what became of it.

The First Singing Computer

The first computer to sing a song was the IBM 7094 in 1961. The song was "Daisy Bell," which i remember learning from my parents even before going to school. When we learned it in music class, that fact that I already knew it made me look just that much weirder to my classmates. This 1961 performance inspired the tense scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey in which the murderous HAL 9000 computer is deactivated.

Liam, however, is less embarrassed now than in previous years. He's finished with eighth grade, and will no longer ride the bus next year when he's in high school.
