I love interesting data visualizations and happened to stumble upon this map of nuclear explosions since 1945 (high res) on Neatorama. I have a lot of respect for designers who can take a mass of data and create an elegantly simple visualization like this one. Original high res image (via Neatorama) – Dave

Abu Ghraib coffee table

You think Karl Rove owns one of these? I think he does. After the Hurricane Ike devastation, this is perhaps the most disturbing thing I’ve seen in the last week.  Is it art? by Phillip Toledano Link (via BoingBoing)

  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
