|The Crash Reel (2013)
This documentary is a must-see. Best experienced without reading what it's about in advance.

|Upgrade Your Ad Blocker to uBlock Origin
Just noticed the first website i've come across that blocks content entirely to those who use adblockers. I won't name any names because, fuck free advertising, but it's pretty interesting.
Incidentally, if you want to be ahead of the ad blocking curve, out with AdBlock Plus and AdBlock. In with uBlock Origin
There's no "acceptable ads" whitelist nonsense that advertisers can pay to get onto. Ergo no text/article ads at the top of your favorite search engine results, and such.For Firefox
. Also available for your favorite browser on PC/mobile. This is not an ad.

Edit: wow, this thing even one-click blocks the pinterest blinders. For the first time ever i'm able to surf pinterest in peace!

|Life Lesson #3041
If a glass is cracked, stop using it. Eventually, when you least expect it, the bottom will fall out, splattering juice all over laptop, clothes, carpet and more.

I've seen it all: "septic-friendly" toilet paper.

|Change for the Sake of Change
Goddamn i can't stand sites like Flickr. They are always changing things around, don't use words to describe some of their buttons/menuitems, everything is just so obfuscated. If you're not a regular daily user, every time you go back to it you're lost.
It took me several minutes to figure out how to upload a fucking image
to their site now. Really? You'd think the entire point of the site would have a giant ass button front and center.
And of course at the end of all that effort, "there was a problem uploading your image". Hahaha. See ya later.
Adansonia grandidieri, sometimes known as Grandidier's baobab, is the biggest and most famous of Madagascar's six species of baobabs. This imposing and unusual tree is endemic to the island of Madagascar [...]
These trees are so cool! I'd seen them before but thought they were just fantasy, not real.

|Muting a Browser Tab
I never noticed that (in Firefox at least) you can mute videos on the tab's name.

KIC 8462852 – eponymously Tabby's star (after lead author Tabetha S. Boyajian) or WTF star (for "Where's The Flux?") - is [...] approximately 454 parsecs (1,480 ly) from Earth.
The star's large irregular changes in brightness are consistent with many small masses together orbiting the star in "tight formation". Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain the star's highly unusual light curve, including that it could be signs of activity associated with intelligent extraterrestrial life.
Will be interesting to see what this turns out to be.

| Why Do Our Fingers and Toes Wrinkle During a Bath?
Scientists think that they have the answer to why the skin on human fingers and toes shrivels up like an old prune when we soak in the bath. Laboratory tests confirmed a theory that wrinkly fingers improve our grip on wet or submerged objects, working to channel away the water like the rain treads in car tires.[src]
