Space is awesome, big, awesomely big

I said it two weeks ago, too:┬áSpace is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space. (a special nerd shout-out [nerd-out? nerd-shout?] to Douglas Adams for that)

OSM: An awesome way to waste Oreos

Also an awesome mocking of pretentious documentaries. But, seriously, who the eff prefers the cookie to the creme?

So *this* is how babies put themselves to sleep. Naturally, it’s cute. And awesome.

This kid self-soothes with a series of wicked-bad-ass face plants. He’s already hard core; imagine what a hellian he’ll be as a teenager.

Pi: transcendental numbers are awesome

Pi to 10 trillion digits is cool, but it turns out that all you need is 39 measly digits.

Back in high school, if you’d told me that one day I would say what I’m about to say, I’d have said you were nuts, but, well, here it is: math is pretty fricking awesome.

So, yeah, the Universe is big. Awesomely big.

I know┬áthat 14 billion light years is 10^23 kilometers, but I can’t begin to understand it.

In France, even the beatboxing is awesome

Dammit, France! You already have the best food and the best fashion, and now you have the best beatboxers, too?! What’s left for America?

From now on, there’s only one awesome way to wake a baby

Sadly, she’s a better dancer than I am.

“Jurassic Park” (the book) is, apparently, even nerdier and more awesome than you suspected

Michael Crichton was an even bigger geek than we knew. Dinosaurs and fractals in one book?!
