Jessica Biel's Profile Of Uber Hotness

Oh, lordy. Lordy, lordy, lordy. Here’s Jessica Biel totally stealing the show and dropping everyone’s jaw at the 83rd Academy Awards Vanity Fair After Party. Holy $#!!… I don’t even know where to start. She looks freaking hooooooot! Now apart from looking ridiculously stunning, Jessica showed off a killer about of cleavage and her drool inducing booty… from multiple shwingtastic angles. Hoochie mama! Get a load of that booty. And her mesmerizing cleavage. Hell, get a load of every single inch of her! Now that my peeps, is the definition of drop dead sexy. And not to mention, the reason why I despise Justin Timberlake. Enjoy!

Fringe’s Anna Torv Topless for Esquire Magazine

Here’s Fringe star Anna Torv posing half-naked for the March 2010 issue and for the life of us we can’t figure out why the photographer thought it’d be sexy if she took a dump without her top off. Unless of course she’s picking up alien clues from the ground in which case the geeks with the batman shirts that are into Esquire just got a massive erection.

Shauna Sand Went To The Beach

Damn, it's been a while since I've posted pics of Shauna Sand and her lucite hooker heels. It's just like seeing an old friend you lost touch with . . . if any of your old friends commonly lose everyday, household items up their vagina. "Found my keys!"

Victoria Silvstedt is flexible

Former Miss Sweden and Playmate of The Year Victoria Silvstedt did some stretching in Central Park yesterday. Silvstedt is a Swedish celebrity model, actress, singer and television personality. Silvstedt was then signed up by a modelling agency in Paris, and she started working for various prestigious fashion houses, including Chanel, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Loris Azzaro and Valentino, appearing in advertisements and fashion shows in the mid-1990s.

PHOTOGRAPHY & EYE CANDY

Photographer Loves Math, Graphs Her Images

Most of us can’t tell our secant from our cotangent. But the forms are everywhere, and Nikki Graziano wants to help us see them. Graziano, a math and photography student at Rochester Institute of Technology, overlays graphs and their corresponding equations onto her carefully composed photos. “I wanted to create something that could communicate how awesome math is, to everyone,” she says. Graziano doesn’t go out looking for a specific function but lets one find her instead. Once she’s got an image she likes, Graziano whips up the numbers and tweaks the function until the graph it describes aligns perfectly with the photograph. When graphed, this trigonometry function produces an ever-repeating wave of peaks and valleys that mirror the natural curves Graziano sees in plants.

The Denge Sound Mirrors: Radar’s Predecessor

Before the application of radar became a reality a number of experimental early warning systems were developed by the British military. One which showed the most promise – as it actually worked – were the acoustic mirrors built at Denge on the south coast of England. Quickly superseded by radar they were abandoned but still remain at their post, obsolete concrete leviathans on an island in the middle of a nature reserve, reminders of a dangerous time in European history. The mirror would pick up the sound of any aircraft approaching the coast of the UK. If they were not scheduled (and flights in and out of the country were closely monitored) then they could be judged as possibly being enemy aircraft. Sound waves were caught in the focal point of the mirror and relayed though microphones to an operator, who could then alert the appropriate authorities. The mirrors were able to give a fifteen minute warning of an approaching assault on the England.

Images from How To Photograph an Atomic Bomb

“One afternoon I was at Lookout Mountain right here in Hollywood, and I got a call from a Woody Mark. He said ‘George, I need you out here tomorrow for a special test.’ I got there that night and he said, ‘Tomorrow morning you’re going to go out with five other guys and you’re going to be standing at ground zero.’ I said, ‘Ground zero?’ He said. ‘Yeah, but the bomb’s gonna go off 10,000 feet above you.’ I said, ‘Well, what kind of protective gear am I going to have?’ He said ‘None.’ I remember I had a baseball hat, so I wore that just in case. He gave me a still camera, and two motion picture cameras. These were 35mm Eyemos. I set up the two Eyemos, and had little trip wires that I could trip with my foot starting about 5 seconds before the blast. And the still camera, I also had a trip wire so that I could trip it. I could get one exposure only. The five other guys were scientists and they volunteered to be there. I wasn’t a volunteer. I didn’t find out until I got there.” -George Yoshitake

Witnessing Summer Starvation Among Polar Bears

Summer on land is a difficult time for polar bears. Relying on the fat gained during winter hunting to see them through the more difficult hunting of summer when pack ice melts. Unfortunately, summer is becoming even deadlier, with pack ice melting earlier, melting farther, and arriving later in the winter. Rebecca Jackrel made a trek to Svalbard, a mecca for polar bear viewing, during July. She witnessed many of the problems polar bears are struggling against during summer months. Check out the outstanding photos from her journey. Jackrel states, "When summer comes to Svalbard the ice pack melts and polar bear are stuck on land. Their metabolism slows down and they enter a kind of walking hibernation. They rely on the reserves of fat generated from a winter of hunting seals to sustain them through the summer months. Polar bear are at their most dangerous to humans at this time of year... wouldn't you be if you were starving?"

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

1955 Ford Beatnik Bubbletop Custom Goes On The Block

Bubbletops are unquestionably an enthralling part of the custom car world, and the one we are talking about here is one good, gorgeous baby to look at. Built by Gary “Chopit” Fioto, the 1955 Ford “Beatnik” Bubbletop Custom is expected to fetch between $200,000 and $300,000 at RM Auction’s Amelia Island event on March 12, 2011. Inspired by futuristic design studies from the ‘50s, the Beatnik is a lavender 1955 Ford-based custom, rides on a modified ‘88 Lincoln Town Car chassis and gets its power from a Chevrolet 350-cubic inch small-block V8 engine. For the Beatnik, Fioto used a mix of Cadillac, Chrysler and Lincoln components, including the canted quad headlights. The front and rear fenders, the door skins and the rear section of the car are hand-formed. In 2006, the custom Bubbletop won the coveted $20,000 Grand Prize at Darryl Starbird’s National Rod and Custom Car Show. The Beatnik has received a number of awards, including the “Blackie” Gejeian’s 2005 Fresno Autorama Sweepstakes Award, “Outstanding Custom” at the 2006 Grand National Roadster Show and the George Barris Kustom d’Elegance Award.

Porsche LMP1 Entry Could be a Hybrid Admits Motorsports Boss

Commenting in a release issued by Porsche on its return to the top-tier of sports car racing and the future of the program, Kristen said that, “the integration of our hybrid technology in the vehicle concept is one possible option.” Kristen is cautions, however, admitting that the entire plan would rely on exactly what the rules allow, but you can be certain Porsche is already lobbying the sport’s governing body. Currently the LMP1 class is dominated by Audi’s R18 diesel race cars, with the only serious rivals coming from Peugeot with diesel technology as well. The reason for their success is fuel economy, with the diesels taking fewer pit stops to refuel. Porsche has already proven with its GT3 R Hybrid race car that it can achieve similar success using hybrid technology, taking the overall win in round four of the Nürburgring Long Distance Championship by requiring one fewer pit stop than the rest of the field. the GT3 R Hybrid uses a modified version of the original GT3 R hybrid powertrain, making 470-hp from a naturally aspirated six-cylinder boxer engine, with an additional 200-hp of electric boost available on demand.

Acura NSX Production car Headed for Detroit Debut?

Auto Express is reporting that Honda is set to unveil the production version of its upcoming Acura NSX at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. The news comes courtesy of an unnamed "top exec" for Honda Brazil speaking at the Sao Paulo Motor Show. The concept version of the Japanese supercar is currently on display there. Interestingly enough, the same unnamed source claims the production iteration will remain aesthetically identical to the show car. You won't hear any qualms from us on that front. Of course, the timing of the production debut is a little confusing. For starters, when Acura unveiled the concept last year, the company told the world it would be at least three years before production began.

2011 Peugeot 908 HDi FAP Le Mans Race Car

The Le Mans endurance race is long considered as the oldest and pre-eminent race of its kind in the world. It’s safe to say that the teams that participate in Le Mans aren’t exactly what you’d consider as run-of-the-mill. Only the big boys play here, so they say. On that note, recent Le Mans history has seen two automakers sit on top of the throne. While one team has long dominated the endurance race for the past decade, one team was able to put a stomp to the other’s run of dominance, claiming the overall championship in 2011. Sure, Audi reclaimed its throne from Peugeot last year, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned from these two teams, it’s that Peugeot won’t go down without taking any swings for the fences. This year, the French automaker is armed and ready for battle after introducing their 2011 Le Mans racer, the new 908 HDi FAP race car.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

Doortop Stash

Pop quiz: What does the top edge of say, your utility closet door look like? I'm betting that you've never seen it, even if you've lived in your home for awhile. And although there's not a lot of room to hide stuff in there, well, if you're like me, the stuff you want to hide is usually on the smaller side. Not many people think of the space inside the door as a hiding spot, but it's right there in easy reaching distance when you need to get to it. And it's devious enough that, yes, I think this trick will still be effective even after I blog it all over the web. You'll need a suitable hollow-core interior door, a cigar tube, a few tools, and some other odds 'n' ends.

NASA Pursues Whisper Mode In World’s Biggest Wind Tunnel

As more and more helicopters are used for everything from medical transportation to news gathering, more and more people on the ground are complaining about the noise. NASA recently spent several months researching new design ideas to make helicopters quieter and more efficient. The work could not only make things quieter on the ground, but could lead to faster helicopters that are able to carry a bigger payload. “NASA hopes to make those new designs quieter, faster, more fuel efficient, and capable of carrying more people and cargo,” said Tom Norman, the researcher for the project test team. The research was performed at the world’s largest wind tunnel located at the Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. There researchers used a rotor from a Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter mounted on a fuselage used only for the research. The goal was to study the interaction between the rotor blades and the air.

Car-to-Car Communication System to Get a Massive Road Test

Technology that would allow cars to talk to each other—to help prevent accidents and improve traffic flow—is about to get a real-world road test following new funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Many high-end cars already come with sensors capable of spotting a vehicle in a driver's blind spot, or warning that the car is drifting out of lane. However, these technologies, which use radar, laser, or video sensors, have a limited view. Car-to-car communications could provide even more sophisticated earlier warnings—for example, when a car several vehicles ahead brakes suddenly. Last month, the DOT awarded $14.9 million to the University of Michigan's Transportation Research Institute to test the technology, known as vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. The system to be tested relies on dedicated short-range radio communication to allow cars to signal one another and receive messages from traffic equipment.

How To Remove Computer Viruses At Home For Free

To the average computer user, contracting a virus is like contracting a rare disease – it brings life to a halt, it is expensive to remove, and worst of all, the probability of catching a virus is much higher than that of catching a serious disease. After the dreaded infection, removal procedures usually include taking the computer to a service center, where technicians charge hundreds of dollars to remove the virus. But what many users don’t know is that viruses are actually not very difficult to deal with. In fact, there are hoards of free tools on the internet that make it simple enough to remove viruses for free, for anyone with even a bit of technical savvy. These tools render spending ridiculous sums of money for a virus removal a thing of the past.
