Feeling bad about your life?

I've spent my free time the past couple of days, drifting through the old photographs over at Shorpy.com . There are literally thousands of old photos, most of which date from the first couple of decades of the 20th century.

I put together a slideshow video featuring one category of pictures that affected me more than all the others - the abhorent child labor conditions around 1910. Next time you feel like bitching because your parking space is too far from the door of your air conditioned office, think about what you're about to see.

I know I will.

Insane Walking Trail

This is an incredible video... a walkthrough of the most dangerous walking path I've ever seen. Its in Spain, and has been closed by the government. As you'll see, that doesn't stop people from using it.

Its called the El Camino Del Rey and was built in 1901. Enjoy:

Steampunk Fan Project

I've done a couple of steampunk projects in the past. Heres my latest, along with a video I made showing in-progress photos and a clip of the fan running:

And here's the clip:
