Sharp SuitsAd creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more took time out to dress up their favourite worst feedback from clients, transforming quotes that would normally give you a twitch, into a diverse collection of posters. People are… special. Especially customers who don’t know what the heck they are talking about.

Children of the 90’s — To go along with Memorex and the 80’s last week, this awesome Microsoft commercial spells out the 90’s pretty well.

The chicken or the egg — Which came first, the chicken or the egg. Fast paced but very clear explanation of the debate over chicken vs egg (vs proto-chicken) and brings up some interesting points. Love the whiteboard art style too. 🙂

Unusual volcanic craters — Beautiful all around. My favorite is definitely Kelimutu, Indonesia. It’s amazing what Earth can come up with, saddens me that it will probably erupt again one day and be destroyed. But then it will leave even cooler stuff behind! Yay science.

The Saylor Foundation — If you haven’t found it yet, go. This is old to me, but found a renewed use for it homeschooling the kid. The bottom line is you don’t need a college to learn stuff, with all the internet at your disposal, go expand your brain.

Nutrition facts for video game food — What if some of the popular foods in video games were real?

Now you’ll know exactly what you’re feeding your favorite video game characters and if your diet is deadlier than your enemies.
