Balancing stones and the sound of the ocean

One thing that I absolutely love is the spending hours at the beach and listening to the sound of the ocean. To me that is the most calming sound in the world (other than the sound of the bell that tells me that the guy selling Bombai Mutai is coming – I really love that stuff).

Here’s some pictures of me trying to balance stones on each other at Russian Beach in Jenner, Northern California.

My Cell phone can make me popcorn

About two years ago I wrote a post about the effects of cellphones and how two Russian guys cooked an egg using two cell phones. It seems that since then some astute scientists (aka students of physics / college blokes fooling around) have learn how to use a cellphone to make popcorn.

The good news: you never have to watch a movie with out popcorn anymore.
The bad news: holy kaboozers. what the hell is it doing to my privates when i have my phone in my pocket and it rings?

Check out the video of how these brave researches popped their corn
