Sunset  07-08-12.jpg    04-14-13 Sunset.jpg

I have a new collection of sunsets like the ones above. Unfortunately, they are 25 and 38 MB in size, so I can't upload them here. You can download it and the original one using the links below. Let me know if you have any trouble doing that.

I am not going to risk posting this to Silly Humor and have someone say it  isn't silly enough. The source of the gif is below it.

Hilarity Ensues  
Jazmine: What's so funny?
Robert: Oh, nothing. Hilarity just ensued; that's all.
Jazmine: It did?!
— The Boondocks

Alleged consequence of any event in a Sitcom or cartoon which in the real world would result in hospitalization, a lawsuit, or dismissal from one's job, at the very least, up to and including possible imprisonment or death. Thankfully for our fictional friends, both the Rule of Cool and the Rule of Funny keep them safe (the latter more prominently).

Traditionally seen in the capsule descriptions of episodes found in programming guides: "Jimbo accidentally glues his boss to a golf cart and hilarity ensues." Outside of these descriptions, though, the phrase is usually used sarcastically, indicating that the consequences are anything but hilarious. The less charitable might say that hilarity is what happens for those hearing about it afterward.

Variants include "...with hilarious consequences" (more common in the UK), "wackiness ensues", and "hijinks ensue." In extreme cases "wacky hijinks ensue." Hijinks are often "aplenty." Compare Silliness Switch, when the hilarity is a choice in an otherwise serious medium.

Not to Be Confused with the webcomic Hijinks Ensue. Or with Humanity Ensues. When something serious happens and it's not played for laughs, you may end up with Reality Ensues. If the aforementioned hilarity is a lawsuit, it may be a case of Hilarity Sues.

Saw this over on Boing Boing :

Filmmaker Tatia Pilieva asked twenty people to kiss for the first time. The awkwardness, anticipation, and culmination... Just lovely.



I found it a fascinating and rather sweet experiment. 8) :Thmbsup:

^I thought it was a bit of a weird idea, but it was very moving to watch - I wonder did any relationships come out of it.

Check this Stanford article (with link to the paper) on how to build a microscope (2000x) for a total of 50 cents (USD) in material costs. Youtube video.

Next year's Pi Day will be even more exciting. On that day, math geeks will get one, shining moment in which they can write the date as: 3/14/15; 9:26:53. Which, everyone knows, are the first ten digits of Pi in perfect order.

Friday is Pi Day

Anyone planning to post here at that time?

Controversial mathematician Stephen Wolfram is about to release a programming language with the goal of being able to quickly do just about any calculation or visualization on just about any kind of data a person could want.

Major Star Wars Plot Holes You Probably Never Noticed[/url]

The reverse question is, what are some movies with the tightest integrated plot you've seen?
