Planetary Space

I personally feel that back when I was at school, we were taught a lot of unnecessary things, like where was the how-to-do-SARS Module 1, and Understanding-Car-Payments-Watch-For-Balloons 101, and so forth in school?

Not only that, I feel many of the things we learnt were either outdated or no longer valid, and I don't think that irrelevance or incorrectness has changed for school in this day and age, I'm about 33.3% sure of that! Take the Solar System for instance, we got fed pretty pictures and stale information about space and the moon but do we really even understand the basics?

I had a vague idea that the planets were pretty far away and spaced well apart from each other, but how cool is this website that really does an epic job of giving you an idea of how far apart everything is, and how far from us (on Planet Earth) things are; spoiler, very VERY far!

You can see the excellent site here, but do it in your lunchtime or after work because you'll be scrolling reading the fun facts in-between for a while!

DragonBall and who inspired the villians

Life inspires art, and art inspires life. Anyone that is artsy in anyway, knows this is true, and many of our favourite movie and series characters have been inspired by real life.




I grew up on Dragon Ball in high school, and was enthralled by it, little did I know that this axiom was true for ol' DB as well. This video really opened my eyes to some really awesome things. Now I'm really clued up on my favourite comic and super hero back stories and easter eggs, but back when you were a kid, you don't always know these things, just have a look at this video that really goes into some cool details about how Dragon Ball was made and who inspired some of the villains and backdrops.
