Think you’re a weather nerd? Well, you’re probably not as weather-nerdy as this guy, who managed to create a visual effect using CSS, HTML and PHP to build a live-updating animated banner based on the current weather on the location the current visitor is in. Whoa. (ht Hacker News)

We’re not typically a fan of super slow motion videos, particularly given the effect’s over usage around the web, but this was too good not to share. We sure don’t envy the guy whose only job was to get a face full of obliterated watermelon and glitter. source

Our favorite Weekend Pass cover EVER. We interviewed “Goosebumps” author R.L. Stine for his appearance at the National Book Festival, and got the original “Goosebumps” illustrator, Tim Jacobus, to draw the cover. Behold its glory. 

For the R.L. Stine freaks in the hizzouse. This cover gives us … you know.

Master Debaters: On October 6, Daily Show host Jon Stewart will face O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly in a 90 minute debate — appropriately named “The Rumble In The Air-Conditioned Auditorium” — to raise money for charity. Interested parties will be able to watch “The Rumble” via livestream, though not for free, and half of the event’s proceeds will go to a number of charities chosen by Stewart and O’Reilly. We wholeheartedly recommend clearing your schedule that evening, setting aside $5 for the livestream, and plan to spend 90 minutes glued to your computer screen. After all, "It’s why Al Gore invented the internet." source

The best way to spend your evening: Playing old-school video games in your browser

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Atari, Microsoft got together with the video game once-was, re-created a ton of old Atari games in HTML5 format, put ‘em in the browser, and created the most exciting thing to happen to your evening — including the RNC (sorry Mitt). Warning: This is like crack. Sorry in advance.

"Well that’s just like, your opinion, man.": BuzzFeed has a set of previously-unseen photos of Steve Jobs, from which you get the impression that he could’ve turned out to be either a man with a lost rug or the CEO of the world’s largest computer company. (It was the latter.)
