Shark stepping on LEGO brick

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/23

A while ago I found [WayBackRare image of a shark stepping on a LEGO – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+ via [WayBack] Roderick Gadellaa – Google+.

I did some research for the origin, which turned out to be very interesting:

More background information:

More stunning pictures by Mike:

Mike Coots lost his leg to a tiger shark at age 18 while surfing off Kauai, Hawaii. But the experience didn’t shake his love for riding waves, the ocean—or sharks.

It is about moving the clock forward in the Dutch comic DirkJan – Wikipedia by , which is done transitioning to Summer time – Wikipedia:

[WayBackAnnelies Hofstede on Twitter: “… “ posted the mirror image of moving the clock backwards:

I tracked the mirroring down to [WayBack] Reddit: Vannacht moet de klok weer verzet worden! : thenetherlands

Fred Hebert on Twitter : “honest programming books… “

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/03

[WayBack] Fred Hebert on Twitter : “honest programming books… “:

  • The CVE Programming Language; ANSI C; Second Edition
  • The Rust Programming Language; The C++ that Feels Like Haskell (this book cannot be borrowed)
  • Librertarian Programming; The Ideology Behind Heartbleed, by a Racist Misogynist Taken Seriously; Revised and Expanded; I don’t think the cops in that video hated anybody. They were just doing their job. And their job included strangling a man to death for having sold untaxed cigarettes.
  • The Go Fuck Yourself Language
  • Continuous Integration; Pushing Retry Until Flaky Test Pass and the Build Succeeds

More images at [WayBack] Thread by @mononcqc: “honest programming books more honest books (including my own) […]”.

TJoe’s personal favorite in form, function, and simplicity… paper plane!

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/21


TJoe’s personal favorite in form, function, and simplicity.

Joe Heche is completely right:

  1. Just look at the plane.
  2. Then try to imagine how far it will go.
  3. Now watch the video below.
  4. Then compare it to how to build the longest flying paper plane building videos and flight videos after that.

Isn’t the one on the right brilliant?

Thanks Joe!
