Some crazy skills with some old-school vinyl, far too cool:

Last night I was flying back home and the skies were clear. I love to watch the street-lights snaking all over the country accompanied by the movement of vehicles. It’s great fun trying to identify some of the locations as we passed over them.

Google Chrome Falls Down
It reminded me of how much fun we used to have with dominos when we were kids, but we never quite got to do anything as fun as this one from a supermarket somewhere in Finland:
I wonder if they sold all of the boxes of (broken) breakfast cereals and biscuits afterwards.
Some illusionary fun with a bunch of iPhones from Marco Tempest; that’s about as much as you need to know:
