"Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives"

From Vimeo

The BAFTA and RTS award-winning documentary "Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives" follows the lead singer of the U.S. rock band Eels, Mark Oliver Everett, on his journey of discovery across America to learn about the father he never knew: Hugh Everett III, whose 1957 "many worlds" theory invoking parallel universes has, since its formulation, been a focus of physics.

The Guardian's wonderful bright yellow copy function

When you copy passages from an article on the Guardian website, the part you're copying turns bright yellow (above), making it really easy to see exactly what material you've selected.

Why can't all websites be like this?

Fluorescent Red-Orange Upside-Down Spray Marking Paint


If you've ever tripped over a gnarly tree root while walking or running, you'll recall the unpleasant sensation of suddenly losing your balance and starting to fall.

If, like me, you've just laid out 0.1-mile-long running path circling your house and yard, then tried it out and twice nearly done a face plant as a result of aforementioned roots, you will want to pony up for a can of this spray paint (the video I made of my track featured green paint, as it was recorded prior to yesterday's arrival of this far superior product).

This can's nifty trick is that it's designed to spray while inverted, as its intended use is for marking of underground utilities, construction and excavation sites, traffic safety, and athletic fields.

You'll see those roots coming from a long way off.

$5.98 (cheap at twice the price IMHO).

Our policy: if you trip and injure yourself on a root highlighted with this paint, let me know and I will send you a sympathy card.
