Monday Rundown: Is Definitely Not Scared Of Giant Snakes
It’s Monday, and if you’re new to Quarterlife Man (welcome), you’re new to the Monday Rundown. The Monday Rundown is a compendium of randomness compiled over the course of each week. Enjoy…
––Scared? No. Possibly Petrified.
Quarterlife readers, meet the Titanoboa.
The fossils of this type of snake, the largest in the history of the world, were discovered in Colombian coal mines in 2009. Believed to have existed 50-65 million years ago, this snake was typically 50 feet long. That’s really, really long. And really, really scary.
Last Thursday, a 48-foot long, 2500-pound replica of this snake debuted at New York’s Grand Central Station. A Smithsonian spokesperson, Randall Kremer, happily admitted that the snake’s purpose was to “scare the daylights out of people.”
Oh joy. That’s the last thing I need to worry about while getting on the train: a waist-high snake that’s the length of a schoolbus.
––Thoughts on the iPhone, in Summation
Throw yo’ hands up if that video resonates completely.
––From the Pages of ‘Nerd Alert’
Here is a great review of the beta version of Adobe Photoshop CS6. Set to release this spring, Photoshop CS6 is loaded with tons of new features and looks to have sizable improvements across the board.
Check out the review for more details. You can download the beta version for free, here.
––Where Do You Put Your Heroin?
This lady puts her heroin in capsules (180, to be exact), and then swallows them into her stomach. A TSA patdown at Washington Dulles found her stomach to be ‘abnormally rigid’, which begs the question: what do you do with a 52-year-old woman that looks like she’s pregnant with Legos?
The heroin had a street value of approximately $150,000.
––QM Readers, Meet: CityMaps
Although only available in New York, San Francisco, and Austin, CityMaps is a cool map service that overlays every commercial storefront onto the map you see. You can also narrow the focus, choosing to view only restaurants, bars, shopping, hotels, or entertainment. There is also a filter for OpenTable establishments.
Check it out. Let’s hope to see this website expand into other regions.
[box_success]Thanks for reading. Check back next Monday for more of the Rundown and, as always, tweet us (@QuarterlifeMan) if you have any suggestions![/box_success]
