I couldn't have imagined that stitching together one second of video for each day of 2011 would be this incredible. And there's just no way I could love this 365 second year-in-a-life any more than I already do.
Aside from True Grit there hasn't been a decent Western movie in years. No, Rango was neither a Western nor good. But Little Tombstone, made by students at ESMA Toulouse, makes me long for the days of the Spaghetti Western and shows, once again, why being an Undertaker is the superior career path.

What’s Sony teasing here? Something called “Dot Switch” apparently. The video depicts a bloke walking down a technology filled room while tapping the screen of his Xperia S, turning on the gadgets as he passes them.
People scared to fly didn't like the video of the crazy crosswind landings at Düsseldorf. This one doesn't show any extreme situation, just beautiful landings and take-offs in Brazil, from an Airbus A320 cockpit. Still, it may cause some vertigo.
As you may know, you can search for photos by dropping a picture on Google Images. It shows you images that are equal or similar to yours. This is what happens when you feed one search with the result of the previous search. 2,951 times.
The BBC's Earthflight series is amazing. They use "many filming techniques to create the experience of flying with birds as they encounter some of the greatest natural events on the planet." The results are stunning.
There was a storm over Düsseldorf's airport last week. Things got rough, with strong crosswinds that made landings pretty hard — and even caused some missed approaches. I get all wimpy looking at them, but I can't stop watching.
The old saying goes you can’t fold paper in half more than eight times, but that myth was dispelled in 2002 with a 12-fold world record. Now some kids from a school in Massachusetts have managed to fold a piece of bog roll 10 miles long (!), in half 13 times.
YouTube users may now upload the equivalent of 240,000 full-length films every week, but the site once hosted less than a hundred clips. And the very first, precedent-setting video was...about elephants?
I think I can still feel my fingers tingling after I played with a stereo hooked up to Ericsson's new capacitive coupling technology, which uses the water in the human body to transmit data instead of cables or radio waves.
Ever wondered how your bag gets from check-in to the plane and then back out to baggage claim as you jet around the world? Watch this awesome video of a bag checking in at Atlanta, shooting round the conveyors, getting hurled about, hopping aboard a plane and landing ready-for-collection in New York.
Chris Bryan, the amazing slow motion videographer, used a Phantom camera to capture surfers riding humungous waves in Teahupoʻo, Tahiti in super slow motion. It's terrifying to see the sea monster known as the ocean so huge and intimidating and hungry. Seriously, the waves were so big the day Bryan filmed the French Navy issued a double code red warning and threatened to arrest people that went into the ocean.
