Two doses of coolness

OK, so I got the permanent contract today and that means I have a reasonably secure source of cash for the foreseeable future. Does that mean I can justify spending £170 on a fucking cool watch? I hope so, the shiny-shiny is calling me…

Also on the cool front is a bit of maths-related cubic tomfoolery, a guide to making your own Yoshimoto cube. I seem to remember having something very similar as a kid, it’s basically a cube made up of eight smaller cubes which can continue unfolding itself indefinitely – click the link to see what I mean.  It definitely violates some kind of universal physical law but would probably get off on a technicality if it ever appeared in court. Still fun though…

UPDATE – A third piece of cool for you. English Russia have a collection of photoshopped images speculating on how some iconic images and products would have looked had Russia been in charge of the world. The KFC logo in particular is fantastic…

  1. There is always a way to justify 170 quid on a watch.

    …what is it with guys and watches? I mean, girls have shoes, but guys seem to LOVE watches…

  2. It’s not just watches, most watches are boring as hell – I mean using hands to tell the time? That’s so last millennium. But the watch I linked is (a) Japanese so inherently cool and (b) tells the time in an obscure fashion using LEDs so you’ll eventually thinks it’s too much of a pain in the assd to bother and just use the clock on your mobile phone or ask someone else the time, thus relegating your £170 watch to an uber-expensive wrist-based Christmas decoration. How do you get cooler than that? 🙂
