French Phrases Hidden in English Words - YouTube
English has borrowed a lot of words from French, but some words come from whole French phrases. Even if you speak French, you may have never noticed the connection.

Crushed between two portals experiment - YouTube
People with apeirophobia really shouldn't watch this. Everything has been recorded at first-person perspective. It resulted in infinite psychedelic visuals such as giant spirals, never-ending walls, and gigantic perpetual portal rooms. Scary at first when you realize you're face to face with yourself. Such visuals potentially can trigger anxiety about mirrors and stairs to some people. There is no way to get out without restarting or using cvars. Chell doesn't die by doing this, and it looks like there's no gravity anymore. For the record: Portals can move. In Chapter 5 (The Escape) at the thirty-third level of the game, you have to place portals onto moving panels to cut neurotoxin generator tubes by using a laser - https://youtu.be/B2gBNwT6aqU?t=2m11s - This gameplay mechanism is not activated by default, so a special command was used to achieve the experiment. I created that simple test chamber by myself in Portal 2 SDK. I will provide an download link in a few days with a readme.txt. SONG: Self-Esteem Fund by Kelly Bailey https://youtu.be/pT7pVK5q8tk

Dinner Tonight: Jacques Pepin's Crusty Chicken with Mushrooms and White Wine

Dinner Tonight: Chicken with Lemon
Yawnnn.... right? How can this possibly be any good? I mean, it's just lemons and chicken! Honestly, I never would have attempted this recipe from Craig Claiborne's New York Times Cookbook if I didn't have a whole stack of lemons and a chicken. Plus it looked easy. But it's remarkable how this can have so much flavor from so few ingredients.

Memories of Murder (2003) - Ensemble Staging on Vimeo
How do you emphasize to the audience that something is important? Well, you could always cut to a close-up, but how about something subtler? Today I consider ensemble staging — a style of filmmaking that directs the audience exactly where to look, without ever seeming to do so at all.

In defence of the hamburger menu
Andy Budd's well argued defence of the hamburger menu. I like the comparison to the VCR/media player pause button, and how that is "…learnable (once you’ve pressed in once you know what it does), memorable (the icon is simple and easy to recall) and produced low error rates (if you accidentally press it you can easily recover with little negative effect)."
