Happy Australia Day from Clipmarks!

February 24, 2007

Adam is our resident Aussie here in the Clipmarks office, and he was awesome enough to bring in a few cans of Fosters in celebration of Australia Day! It’s been an extremely intense week, and we’ve got so much amazing stuff coming that we’re informally calling it “Clipmarks 2.0″ here in the office. Seriously, some of this stuff is going to knock your socks off.

After a week of late nights, it was great to unwind a bit, hang out, and brainstorm over a beer.

Now, Sara and I are headed to California Pizza Kitchen for a much needed night out. Pizza has never sounded so good!

Incredible “free running” (aka parkour) video

February 24, 2007

clipped from videobomb.com

I wanted to train seriously for parkour last year when I was running for fitness, but a small extra bone in my right foot makes landing hurt a LOT. These guys are still my heroes though. They make Jackie Chan look like a chump!

I’m a sucker for any video game tune played on a real instrument – this is a pretty good rendition of the tetris tune!

H2O: Dangerous Chemical!

H2O: Dangerous Chemical!

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho
Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we
have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of
everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a
petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical
“dihydrogen monoxide.”
And for plenty of good reasons, since:


  1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
  2. it is a major component in acid rain
  3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
  4. accidental inhalation can kill you
  5. it contributes to erosion
  6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
  7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients
He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.


  • Forty-three (43) said yes,
  • six (6) were undecided,
  • and only one (1) knew that the chemical was water.
The title of his prize winning project was, “How Gullible Are We?”

Beware the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide!

Heart Disease Cured

February 24, 2007

Heart stem cells discovered by three teams

They have already been dubbed “master” heart cells, and hold the promise of treating patients with serious cardiovascular disease: Three US research groups claim that they can produce stem cells that give rise to different tissues found in the mammalian heart.

Being able to rebuild both cardiac muscle and blood vessels may be important for repairing hearts ravaged by cardiovascular disease. “Where there’s damage, there’s damage to more than one cell type,” notes Orkin.
