The baffling topology of the burrito method for covering your duvet

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRPfudNNd8Y

Inhabitat's video explaining the "burrito" method for getting a duvet into its cover is both excruciatingly slow in places, and also fantastically baffling: how the actual fuck does this topological exercise work? (via Kottke)

Photographer Dave Sandford braved the cold and turbulent waters...

1 Comment






Photographer Dave Sandford braved the cold and turbulent waters of Lake Erie in late fall to capture some remarkable wave action. Like on the ocean, waves in the Great Lakes are largely driven by winds, but lakes don’t develop the constant set of rolling waves that oceans do. Instead their waves are more erratic and unpredictable. Sandford focused on capturing the moment when wind-driven waves coming into shore collided with waves rebounding from piers or rocks along the shore. The results are waves that, through Sandford’s lens, look like exploding mountainsides. Such energetic waves mix sediment and nutrients in the lake, and the spray of droplets can even loft aerosols and pollutants from the water into the atmosphere.   (Photo credit: D. Sandford; via Flow Vis)

computer-skill-levels-by-count

The OECD's 2011-2015, 33 country, 215,942-person study of computer skills paints a deceptively grim picture of the average level of computer proficiency around the world -- deceptive because it excludes over-65s, who research shows to be, on average, less proficient than the 16-65 cohort sampled.
