Excellent short documentary about Hajj, from a recommendation on Reddit. I don’t think I knew any of this.
This watch is ridiculous, but the craftsmanship and even the way it’s presented is incredible. The way they handled sound is brilliant. I’ve skipped you past the initial thousand-yard-stare imagineering bullshit.
Speaking of watches, this will be mine in July, for my bufday. Huawei Watch in silver. Flippin NYOM.
This has been doing the rounds for ages, I’m more posting it for myself than anything. Ignore the unfortunate title.
Intake, compression, ignition, exhaust!
There’s a load of videos out there about loading 4+ cars into shipping containers, with some people building frameworks around the cars with timber and other using super-dodgy configs, but this is how I want mine loaded. So Cherman! (Sorry about the potato quality.)
Just in case you missed it, Leonard Nimoy’s last tweet was wonderful, even to a hard-hearted bastard like me. RIP.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

This is pretty long, but if you’re into comedy (particularly technically) it’s very easy to watch; it’s probably the longest thing I’ve watched on YouTube in a few years.
Most interesting fact, for me at least, is that CCGC costs 100k an episode to produce. It sounds like a lot to a pleb like me, but it makes more sense after watching this.
I absolutely love this car — the Audi R8 profile, the Saab Aero X cockpit-style windscreen, the bizarre rear quarters with wonderful flying buttresses, even the engine sounds pretty good, for a V6.
The matching embedded exhausts and tail lights look great, the anthracite alloys with super-thin spokes are gorgeous, the carbon sills on the scissor doors look like something from /r/oddlysatisfying, the mirrors are just wonderful, and the interior looks swish without getting carried away.
They say it’s going into production. Where do I sign up?
(Apologies about the source, I’m not a fan of Shmee but to be fair to him, this was the best overview of the car.)
