That reminded me, for some reason, of the Fly Lamp by Swedish design group Front. (Heia Sverige!) It's made from a motion capture of a fly circling a light bulb. I don't know what you could make from this, though. Maybe funnel cake.

It's like that test where they gave the spiders acid, and their webs came out all weird, except with the crop-circle-builders.

Week In Photos: Cocaine Derby, Opium in Flames, Tornado, More

Oh, really, what more could top that list?

I have a strong urge to draw that shape without lifting my pen. Also, watching opium burn must be one a very popular thing to do.

What more could top that list? A freight train full of chickens crashing into a mental hospital as a hurricane tears apart the methamphetamine lab hidden in the basement while Dog The Bounty Hunter chases the escaping inmates.

It's a hell of a drug.

I just clicked through to see if Stynxno had used the forthelulz tag again ;p

They're also destroying marijuana fields in Afghanistan by incineration.

"A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those (forests) did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action."

I think the commander misunderstood the soldiers talking about the "ill shit."

He wasn't just a coke-head; he was a cereal killer.

See? This reminds me of the point I've had all along.

IF aliens had a message to send of through the trampling of grasses, even encoded, it surely has to contain more information than can be contained in a few concentric circles with a slash coming out at a 45 degree angle with a smaller set of concentric rings.

Using Poaceae as a medium is wicked dumb (if I were to use it as a communication device, surely it would make more sense to alter it's phenotype rather than its orientation to the horizon).

You could sell me on this type (the photo in the post) of crop desecration holding more meaning (info, data, bits) than the season 6 of X-Files or Volume 3 of Wired magazine aesthetic anyday.

Wow we've gone from single-link, video-based posts to single-image, CONTENT-DEVOID crapposts. CONGRATS! EVOLV'd! FAIL.

GYOB. Show us what Mefi should be. Let us know.

This post made me laugh. It made me think about the similarities that our sometimes remote-feeling cultures share. Then I marveled at the lamp and rug that some commenters linked to in this thread. Then I laughed again when I saw the video of the chase that was linked to further down.

I don't think that a simple post is bad by default; it's about what you make of it, I guess. Sometimes the discussion is what makes the post - sometimes you find more than you expect.

Wow. See, it made more sense to drive through that field when I thought that it hid the car from view. But after seeing that video, he might as well have tried to hide by driving around a parking lot.

Sweet! Photos like that are what the internet was made for.

Also youtube mockumentaries of spiders on drugs.
