You know that thing in movies where women take off their glasses…

You know that thing in movies where plain looking women take off their glasses and suddenly become beautiful?  My favorite example of it comes from The Big Sleep when Humphrey Bogart is hanging out in a bookstore and the schoolmarmish clerk…  Well, watch:

These TUMBLRers have explored the truth behind the myth. If you only look at one TUMBLR post this year, it has to be Magical Deductions ⚡☂:

And why? Because “Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses.”

In-dash Caffeine Delivery System

For zombies, it’s brains. For me, it’s caffeine. And I’m always on the lookout for new caffeine delivery systems (CDSs). But I have to wonder… how safe is to be brewing very hot liquids while driving at 100kph?

 Espresso Machine for Your Car: Didn’t have time to brew your own cup of coffee in the morning and buying drive-thru coffee is too plebeian for your sophisticated palate?

This nifty thing is for you: the Handpresso Auto espresso maker. Just plug it into your car’s cigarette lighter and you’ll have a proper cup of coffee in no time! (via Crate and  Neatorama.)

Furniture made from Golden Gate Bridge steel

If you are not a native San Franciscan, perhaps this won’t seem that special to you, but for me I find myself lusting after furniture in a way I haven’t done since I discovered the work of the Eames Brothers.

You remember that passage in Neal Stephenson’s Cryptonomicon when one of the characters is writing about Gomer Bolstrood furniture and his wife’s erotic fixation on heirloom furniture? Like that.

Animal Cam: Red-tailed Hawk Nest at Cornell University

Live! Red-tailed Hawk Nest at Cornell University, All About Birds, Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

This is the female, Big Red, who just laid her third egg on March 22 and the clutch is likely complete. Incubation lasts 28-35 days, so hatching should be around the week of April 13.  You can also vote on a name for her male partner.

The sounds are not anything special, compared to those of the Bald Eagle Cam, but the site has a chat feature which can be fun.

The 400 Blows

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
