Their posting widget also allows me to crosspost to Pinterest and Tumblr (or to Twitter or Facebook or Buffer, if you use those).
Once you bolt a page, Bo.lt saves a copy of the page. So, your bolt will always go to the static copy…which will always look exactly like it did the day you bolted it. No more broken links! (A link to the original is always available, too.)
All the usual Pinterest ability to browse through an endless page of pretty things and re-post the things you like.
Ability to search either all public Bo.lts or just your own.
Tagging. Collections. Organization stuffs.
Ability to keep your bolts completely private, should you so choose.
Free. ’Nuff said. And now available without an invite.
Just thought that folks might want to try this out! What do you say, fandom, is this something we are interested in?
EDIT: Also, I sent in some suggestions to them the other day and just got back a candid and chatty reply to every one of my questions. A++ for startup-fu!
An average male has about 6 litres of blood and his internal carotid artery clears about a quarter of a litre per minute at rest to supply the brain. When in a stressful situation, like, for example, being shot, that output can double. If we need to lose about 20% of our blood to lose consciousness, our notional male could black out in just over two minutes just through having damage to his carotid. However, that’s two minutes of waiting if he’s not been knocked unconscious by the impact.
But if we’re thinking about brain damage, the extent depends on a whole range of ballistic factors – the velocity, shape, size and make-up of the bullet being key. As it turns out, the brain needs special consideration, not least because it is encased in the skull. One of the first things to consider is that the skull can fracture and how the fragments themselves can become missiles. In 42 cases of civilian gunshot wounds to the brain two neurosurgeons were able to find bone chips in 16 patients’ brains simply by “digital palpation” – which is a complicated medical term for sticking your fingers in and wiggling them about. In other words, a shot to one part of the head may have knock-on effects purely due to skull shattering.
However, the skull also sets up a unique target due to its enclosed nature. If someone gets shot in the leg the pressure of the impact can be released into the surroundings. If a bullet gets into the brain the options are fewer because the pressure waves and, indeed, the brain, are largely trapped inside a solid box of bone. If you want to get an idea of the sorts of pressures involved, just catch a video or two of bullets being fired into ballistic gel and think what would happen if the gel was trapped inside a personally important life-sustaining box.
Song:Inception Mombasa Remix By: Asis Galvin Based On:Mombasa From Inception Original Composer: Hans Zimmer
Quick question: This is reality we’re facing and not a dream, right? Or a dream within a dream? Don’t panic, as questioning your consciousness may happen while listening to this week’s Weekend Remix.
Hans Zimmer really delievered another great soundtrack when he decided to once again work with Christopher Nolan for Inception. He delivered a dense electronica album nearly as memorable as the movie. And the track Mombasa is definitely one of the soundtrack’s shining highlights. The song is a near-perfect tune that excitedly builds itself up as it goes. That’s perfect, considering this song played during a chase scene.
Asis’s hip-hop influence spin on the track doesn’t detract anything that makes the original special. Instead, if anything, he makes the comboination of Zimmer’s dense electronica and his hip-hop influence seem much like a natural fit. And maybe that because much like Zimmer, Asis manages to the build the song to this awesome audio conclusion.
It’s just that this remix is better suited for bumping in the car and rattling the trunk. This could have been a disastrous case of adding in too many ingredients to a great recipe. Instead, he adds a few spices that give it an excellent kick.
If you’d like to hear more from Asis, you can check out some of his mixtapes on his website.
I’m a guy, and I’m not attracted to penises. I don’t find them aesthetically alluring. Do all of the young men, and it is always young men, who scrawl crudely rendered pictures of penises over all public spaces enjoy dicks? Is that what they’re trying to tell me? Is this how young men come out as…
RELATEDLY: the freight elevator at work is right next to the real elevators, and we often use whichever comes first. The freight elevator has a blankety thing on the walls to, I imagine, protect said walls from getting dinged by…freight.
Said blankety thing, at some point a few years ago, gathered some graffiti. I forget whether COCK or DONG or BALLZ came first, but ever since there has been a steadily-growing, multi-lingual LEXICON of male genitalia terms written in that elevator. English, Spanish, a few others I can’t recognize but which might be Vietnamese. I used to be mildly embarrassed to ride that elevator. Now? Now I check out the wall each time I’m in it, just to see if there’s anything new. I consider it a learning experience.
