Well guys, it's been a fun project.
However, it's time to move on to new pastures.
Why? Time requirements. Putting it together takes a LOT of time & effort, and it's time to put that attention elsewhere.

Yes, I will still have an lj account, and continue reading of and commenting on your respective blogs.

all the content will remain, just at notabouthim.livejournal.com

I'll leave you with this:

(you have been warned)

a new optical effect has been created that means solid objects could one day be rendered invisible

and, just coz it's friday.. something different: a chinese penis restaurant ("Of course, there are other restaurants that serve the bian [penis] of individual animals. But this is the first that brings them all together.")

common sorting algorithms, and their relative performance (this one is best for cousins, this for grandmas, but these aunt good for anything, har har)

famous unsolved codes and ciphers (do one of these and I'll buy you an icecream)

conversational terrorism

a guild holds WoW server hostage (until someone pays them 5000 gold)

modafinil is the kickass new(ish) drug that allows you to operate for 40 hours non stop, with no known side effects (more on the general area here)

loud music definitely wakes you up - and if you take MDMA as well, the music then amplifies the effect for up to 5 days

the Japanese are getting to the point that they can't let their dead go without taking their photo first

a vietnamese man has been awake for 3 decades without sleep (and yes, has been very well studied by curious scientists)
