Some ad agency came up with fake "vintage" ads for Facebook, youtube, and Skype.

Turn a picture of yourself into a shark. (Should you wish to.)

At http://www.kubrick2001.com/  you'll find a flash animation in four parts, presenting an explanation - I would not call it the explanation - of the Kubrick film. 

It's kind of interesting, but a bit on the long side, so you'll need to allow nearly half an hour to watch all four parts.

I'd never heard of Manhattanhenge (aka the Manhattan Solstice) until a few minutes ago, when I stumbled across some nifty pictures of it at: http://blog.flickr.net/en/2009/07/13/manhattanhenge/

There is a Wikipedia article about the phenomenon (with another pretty picture) at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattanhenge

And then I discovered they have something similar at MIT -- called MIThenge, of course -- which you can read about at:
