  1. Mongols

    Mongols and nomads of the Asian Steppe have had my attention for well over 6 months and I'm still very much interested in the culture and way of life that is 100% different from my own. Communist, nomadic, Asian, Muslim and tengrist not to mention living on the opposite side of the world. Mostly this was through the amazing lens of Tim Cope. Features in this photo.
  2. The Mechanical Computer

    A computer developed during the 1830's by a man named Charles Babbage that was entirely comprised of gears. You would enter in a sort of punch card that would initiate a program for a mathematical calculation. His friend, Ada Lovelace, saw beyond mathematics and comprehended the potential computers had to do just about anything. Charles Babbage was a bit eccentric and just got tired of the machine and moved onto other ideas, but it's interesting to think of a world with steam powered computers
  3. The Ourang Medan
    55d327a0 92a7 4f10 8b9c f98e54d0fcd2
    One of the strangest and most haunting shipping accidents. Still an unsolved mystery.
  4. The Presidential Race

    It probably isn't really that imperative to start following the candidates so early, but I want to be sure I am informed when I cast my first vote for president.
  5. How Mad Men doesn't have to deal with copyright issues every time they present a real company.

    This was pretty interesting especially with Jaguar, who they gave a very negative representation of, basically companies expect audiences to understand these are fictional representatives of their company over 50 years ago. Also they don't mind the free commercials literally being created on the show.
  6. Recently Extinct Animals
    81c3eb39 9ecb 4a22 9744 250dd50106e5
    Pretty sad and mostly our fault as humans, but humans may also be responsible for bringing some species back into existence pretty soon so that's kinda cool. The Tasmanian Tiger is featured
  7. The NFL

    Basically fantasy football research. This one I definitely over analyzed.
  8. Proof of Aliens
    D012f295 e763 4eb5 afe1 9258b8c0004c
    I wanted to see some compelling evidence so bad, but it's just not out there. The most intriguing event was the Battle Over Los Angeles 1942, look it up!
  9. Middle Earth
    E0626af1 f2aa 4875 a606 49a521ff8b14
    It's just crazy how deep this world goes. If you have any question about how anything works Tolkein has written it down. It is a totally complete world that is easy to get immersed in and fall in love with. Brilliant.
  10. Nicola Tesla
    Cba07d2a 78b5 4576 af28 413f3a00f170
    The most under appreciated man of the last century. We owe electricity to his genius. Also Edison is the worst, see Top 5 Jodes list.
