What does blinking have to do with cartoons? This video by a Simpsons storyboard director will tell you

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Friday 19 September 2014

Did you know that the average person blinks 28,000 times PER DAY!? Neither did we. It’s hard to believe that we blink our eyes that many times, mainly because it feels like we are seeing the world continuously without gaps. The reason for this is a nifty little trick of the brain called ‘persistence of vision’. Thanks to Simpsons animator Matthew Schofield we can tell you that an after-image remains on your retina when your blink so that your brain doesn’t consciously register a literal blank and your visual reality continues undisturbed.

These photos of dogs sitting on cats (and cats getting their revenge) are priceless!

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Trends on Friday 19 September 2014

Oh, these are are too funny for words. This collection of ‘Cat? What cat?’ photos from our friends at Sad & Useless will have your sides splitting. Something about the utterly bemused look in each of the cat’s faces as they play cushion for ever-attentive dogs is completely hilarious. It’s as if they’ve finally accepted their lot in life, like the intelligent kid with the stupid big brother who comes to terms with being pushed around… or sat on?

We are quivering in the face of this cat’s deathstare

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Friday 19 September 2014

There’s not a lot we can tell you about this photograph… but then again, what do you need to know? Never before has any creature been able to imbue so much scorn, distaste and hatred into a glare as this cat. It’s almost as if he (she?) is daring the driver to move the car. Perhaps all puss wants is to come along for a ride, who knows.

This small device cancels out your co-worker’s annoying gossip and laughter

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Tech on Friday 19 September 2014

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Friday 19 September 2014

Duck..dodge!…weave…side-step…dodge again! Maybe the best way to win a fight is just to keep moving, avoiding blows and never actually throwing any yourself.
