The sun as you've never seen it before, be sure to change the resolution to 720p or higher.

Simply beautiful.

'Every 12 seconds, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory images the sun in ten wavelengths of invisible ultraviolet light. Each wavelength is assigned a unique color and every image is EIGHT times the resolution of HD video.

A team of media specialists works about ten hours to create one minute of this footage.'

Inside the Cray-1 at the Deutsches Museum.
I guess someone at Cray Research decided that the best option was to use the same colour wire for everything. :lol:

Ralph & the prostitute

Ralph, an old retired sailor, puts on his old uniform and heads for the docks in Dartmouth once more, for old times sake and some hot sex.
He engages a lovely prostitute and takes her up to a room.
He's soon going at it as well as he can for a guy his age,
but needing some reassurance, he asks,
' How am I doing? '
The prostitute replies,
' Well Ralph, ya old sailor, you're doing about three knots. '
' Three knots? ' he asks.
' What's that supposed to mean? '

She says,
' You're knot hard, you're knot in, and you're knot getting your money back. ' :lol:
