A cheap telephoto lens is cheap crap
I’ve noticed that there are a tonne of camera accessories for mobile phones these days. What’s especially caught my eye are these new-fangled telescopic lenses that you can whack onto your phone.

RECREATIONAL motorcyclists are protesting across Australia on Sunday to show solidarity against Queensland’s tough new anti-bikie laws.

Mr Buckley said a primary concern was that the laws reversed the onus on proof for people […]
Whether you want to upgrade your existing Note II to the brand new Note 3 is completely up to you, and your pockets. Sure, the Note 3 is one of the fastest phones on the planet now, with a larger screen and all, but, if you don’t care about raw horsepower, you don’t really have […]
“A full-scale 1:1 Millennium Falcon has been built as well as the interiors of the ship for filming. The Falcon is done – inside and out. The sets were built off-site, ready to move when Lucasfilm/Bad Robot were ready to move into Pinewood.” Dear god. Source

During Mr Abbott’s 2009 carbon tax speech, in which he described himself as […]
It began as an art installation, and has become a tip-of-the-hat to Buddhist ideology.

The main subjects of an unusual art and science project dubbed “Selfmade,” the cheeses reportedly […]
Two sky diving planes full of skydivers collide midair, explode and crash. Everyone survived. I suppose everyone having parachutes on their backs helped. Amazing footage, glad no one died so you can enjoy this.

Agent Zero sent me this. It’s amazing. Some of the naughty characters thought up over the years for Batman comics. My favorite is “Arm Fall Off Boy”. A villain who can rip off his own arms and beat you to death with the soggy bits. I shit you not.
