Josh Worth’s graphic recreation of the solar system, to scale, with one pixel representing 3474.8 km (that’s 2159.14 mi). If you have the patience to scroll all the way to the gas giants, he has some interesting commentary about the inconceivability of enormous numbers and of the emptiness of space.

This is Ash Vickers‘ wonderful tribute to Harold Ramis [obituary]. He writes:

So Long, Egon.

To those who are asking, No, I don’t think the Ghostbusters would trap Egon and shove him in with all the other malicious ghosts.  I think Egon would want to know what it’s like to be in the trap in the interests of science.  The caption on this might as well be “No guys…. It’s fine! I’ll be fine.  I’ll see you soon!”

I drew this as a tribute to Harold Ramis, or as I first came to know him, Egon Spengler.  RIP, Harold. You will be missed.

Brian made this for me!!

Stephen Merchant, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Jimmy Fallon. Amazing.

Except for the inaccuracies surrounding the pronunciation of ‘tulaberries’ and what series they were in, and where that series took place, this animated version of Badger’s speech on last night’s ‘Breaking Bad’ is pretty great.
