…It’s TGI Friday: You Should Have Seen This?

You Should Have Seen This

Are you ready to catch up with the Internet? Do you want to know every meme and every popular video and every strange picture and every funny joke that has ever been converted to bits and bytes and put online?

Then spend the weekend going through Greg Rutter’s Definitive List of The 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced On The Internet Unless You’re a Loser or Old or Something.

The site is a rather definitive list of just about everything that has ever earned its 15 minutes of Internet fame, and if you make it out alive, you’ll have the collective knowledge of about 99% of the people on the Internet crammed into your brain.

Just be prepared to be amazed, shocked, scared, and a little bit afraid.

…Superheroes age?

Old Superheroes

Donald Soffritti likes to draw cartoons of what superheroes would look like after they retired and moved to Florida.

I guess even the mighty must fall eventually.

…Typography is neat?

Typography is an instructional style video about the look of language.

The animation is extremely well done, and I love the old look and feel that it has, so check it out:

For a few other typography related videos, check out Pulp Fiction (NSFW):

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Pontiac LeSupra?

Pontiac LeSupra

Sure, they did it in 3 Fast 3 Furious, but no one actually puts a new engine into old muscle; do they?

Well apparently they do, because the ’72 Pontiac LeMans that you see here is powered by none other than a 1991 Toyota Supra 7M-GTE 3.0 Litre 24V Turbo motor.

Apparently the car was basically a total loss when it was purchased at auction, so it’s not like they chopped up some pristine iron to make this creation, but I’m still not sure if I can wrap my head around how they decided that this was their best bet for power.

I guess if the go pedal works though, it doesn’t exactly matter what it’s connected to.

…Old laptops are good for something?

Old Laptop

When a laptop ages, it’s easy to ponder a replacement for the outdated machine.

However, with some new software, outside the box thinking, or hardcore hacking, an old laptop can also take on a new life as a server, a photo frame, a backup, and more.

If you’re interested, Lifehacker’s got the guide to turn your old machine into a new toy, so check out the list to see what you can do with yours.
