I am a huge fan of hamburgers. I also recently moved to Colorado from Texas, and Colorado isn’t a Whataburger state. I’m sad about that, but I can now walk from Walmart to the car without having heat stroke so there’s that.
One of the first things a person who is thinking of building any sort of structure is told is to build upon a solid foundation. Normally, people then go find a piece of level, solid earth, and start going up from there.
No cowboy hat. No chaps. Not even a six gun. The latest helper to round up livestock is a robot. What has the world come to? Earlier this month in Sydney, Australia, a team from the University of Sydney’s Australian Centre for Field Robotics tested the four-wheeled remote-controlled robot called Rover.
Whether you like it or not, electric cars are part of our future, and I hope that my next one will be able to function without the need of any gas. Distance races are quite important, because they allow teams to showcase and iron out the faults in rapidly-developing electric vehicle technologies.
Have you ever wondered what LEGO trees would look like if they actually grew in to the size of real trees? What would plastic trees look like in our world? Well, wonder no more. Plastic plant life has now emerged in a desert near the mining town of Broken Hill, Australia.

Even though the caravan was modest, to say the least, especially considering that this is Mario and Nintendo we’re talking about, it did have plenty of stuff to offer.
These amazing sculptures were created by the Australian artist Peter Hennessey. And no, they can’t fly. They’d probably burn up on lift-off if you even tried to launch one into space.
My Hubble will premiere at the Biennale of Sydney 2010.
The city of Melbourne, Australia currently has two suns. There’s the normal one that it shares with the rest of the world and goes away during the night, and there’s the one in Melbourne’s Federation Square, rising at night, about 100 million times smaller than the real Sun.
What you’re looking at is the millionth Xbox 360 to be sold in Australia and New Zealand, and it’s going to be auctioned off for charity.
The customized Xbox 360 was created by Richard Taylor and the Weta Workshop.
These gigantic origami tigers signal the beginning of another Year of the Tiger, which will be shortly coming up after Chinese New Year on February 14th.
