When I’m done using my laptop, I stow it away in a sleeve printed with zebra stripes all over. The sleeve looks pretty beat up from months and months of use, but I just haven’t found the time to look for another one that would appeal to my taste.
How would you like to be a Gotham cop having to pull over Batman in his Batmobile and report this to Commissioner Gordon? That would suck. Well, that’s not exactly what happened here, but it probably still feels weird to pull over the Dark Knight.
Remember those cool polygon superhero images by James Reid? Well Rene Schiffer takes our heroes a bit further into pixel-land by using only rectangles in his version. None of his designs uses any other shapes but rectangles and none have more than 20 colors.
An American man has had what doctors say is the most extensive face transplant in history. The man’s name is Richard Lee Norris and years ago he suffered massive facial injuries in a gun accident.

Spending the vast majority of my professional life online, I receive an inordinate amount of email messages in my inbox every day. Most days, I get at least 200 to 300 messages, so it’s become very difficult to manage all the stuff flowing through my box and make heads or tails of it all.
When I think of hammocks, I’m reminded of the cool, summer afternoons I spent just lazing away in my backyard. When I think of sleeping bags, I remember the few but memorable camping trips I went to with my dad, uncle, and some naughty cousins.
