Two blogs about a whole lot of nothing

The Return of The Internet (aka Week 23)

Hot on the heels of Jesus being resurrected (or so the story goes), it's week 23 of the internet (I decided to skip 22, even though it really doesn't matter in the big picture. None of this does really). 

I hope your Easter holiday was wonderful. Mine was filled with food, family, and Fyne Ales. I was barely online for the whole week so have no idea what's been going on, so you'll have to excuse me if some of what follows is, like, totally old, but whatever - this is my blog, not yours. 

Now, I can't remember and am too lazy to check if I ever posted the longest US road trip (well, the one to hit "all 48 contiguous states, and includes 50 stops at National Natural Landmarks, National Historic Sites, National Parks, and National Monuments), but now there's a European one. Well, it's not the longest, it's actually the most efficient. You know, like if you were German and wanted to see Europe. On yer bike. 

I'm actually fairly certain I've posted about Bomb Sight before, but it's recently resurfaced and is really very cool, so here it is again (ah! Posted in 2012). See all the (recorded), bombs dropped on London during the Blitz (7th October 1940 to 6th June 1941). There's a lot. None of anywhere I lived though. 

Channel 4 have got a pretty cool series going called Drones in Forbidden Zones. It's, well, drones flying through forbidden zones, like abandoned places etc. Nifty. Here's one of them. 

Don't Hug Me I'm Scared have released a new film. It's as weird and freaky as you might expect. 

It was April's Fools Day during the break, of course. I tried to do one, but someone ruined it right away. Some people... Anyway, I was very fond of the story from New Zealand and BMW.

Google Maps has an interesting new feature. 

If you're thinking about making a website, make sure you make it right. According to this, I did! 

Find out where airport codes come from. It's not always what you think. 

Of course there's something about space, you daft people. Here you go. 

Have a lovely sunny weekend, everyone!
