A tree uprooted and fell over in the Paul Firbasí backyard when hurricane Sandy blew through. He called in a friend with a chainsaw to dismantle the tree. The friend takes all the branches off, then starts cutting the trunk in lengths from the top of the tree. In this sequence, he hits the sweet spot where the weight at the top of the trunk is suddenly less than the weight of the root ball. Itís all okay now!

Surprisingly, the feds have approved powdered alcohol for general sale, leading not only to just-add-water hooch but complex alcoholic dry ingredients in food recipes. You can even snort it, but they really advise against it.

In 2011, the Justice Department targeted online-poker operators for violating the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. Since then, many guileless amateurs, known to poker pros as "fish," have been moving back to casinos.

I used to watch Giants games just to see Tuck's facemask, which I considered to be the most intricate and laughably excessive. This imgur album shows that Darnell Dockett's got Tuck beat hands down, even though this pic says otherwise.

A Shanghai building company recently constructed a small community of partially 3D-printed houses in less than a day. Unlike DUS Architects' ongoing aims to completely 3D-print a canal house in Amsterdam however, the Chinese company WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co. printed the basic components separately before assembling them on site. Although these concrete houses do not represent 3D printing in its purest form, their construction in such a short time span for just $4,800 each is no less impressive.

Light-absorbing glow-in-the-dark road markings have replaced streetlights on a 500m (0.3 mile) stretch of highway in the Netherlands. Studio Roosegaarde promised the design back in 2012, and after cutting through rather a lot of government red tape we can finally see the finished product.
Monday again - you can either go merge back into the rat race, or you can lay around in your underwear eating cereal and watching movies. Today's temptation is Allan Arkush's Get Crazy, a damn-the-man comedy about saving a musical venue with a star-studded cast including Malcolm McDowell as a thinly-veiled Mick Jagger, Ed Begley Jr, Daniel Stern, and the late great Lou Reed as a thinly-veiled Lou Reed.
