Doctors can Now Save Gunshot and Stabbing Victims by Placing them in Suspended Animation

Doctors at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania are ready to try to save the lives of 10 gunshot and stabbing victims by placing them in suspended animation. Why they chose 10 victims is unclear. Sounds to me like they plan to go on a 10-person medical rampage but that seems unlikely. Maybe it’s just …

Make it a Font: New Pop Culture Alphabet

Given enough time I’m sure we could all think up characters to go with every letter. To prove that artist Jeff Victor created an alphabet with a favorite character from pop culture for each letter. Your goal is to name them all without looking them up. Sadly I wasn’t able to do it. I’m not …

Now There’s a Temporary Solution: Website Buys Users New Computers

If you’re unfortunately like me then you live the constant nightmare of helping people fix their computers all the time. I hope that you are blessed with grandparents whose worst problem is when they can’t find the power button so the fix is easy. If you end up dealing with being who have broken technology …

Not Sure About This: Wooden Bathtub

Believe it or not, one of my most-read posts ever is about a bathtub. I know, ‘m just as surprised as you. So let’s see if we can go two for two. Don’t ever say that I don’t give the people what they want. This particular bathtub is made of wood “monolithically formed as one …

Print Me a Cake: 3D Printed Food

Want: Tiny Segway Thing

Ever since I first heard about the Segway back in 2001 I’ve wanted one. The problem in getting one has been that they cost more than all the cars I’ve ever own combined. I just can’t justify the purchase. So for now, no Geek Chariot for me. Created by the company of the same name …
