Feast your eyes on 5,000 pine trees, planted in 1937, spelling Studebaker when viewed from high enough. Bendix Woods park was formerly the Studebaker proving grounds, and much of the track surface is still visible in satellite photos. But what stands out is the eerie grove of now-mature trees reminding aircraft and satellites of a car company gone for 45 years.

The Order Of Elijah is a deathcore band from Joplin, Missouri, who, up until about a week ago, was a Christian metal band. To the group's credit, though not in the same genre, metal has had fantastic Christian metal groups in the past (Extol comes to mind), so we'll leave the whole "can Jesus metal rule?" debate out of this. I'm sure you're also noticing that I keep referring to the band's belief in God in the past tense… which is accurate.

So you have more than just a casual interest in the heavens above. In fact, you're an armchair astronomer with two telescopes. Naturally, this list will appeal to you.

In 1899, when famous arctic explorer Robert Peary reached Ellesmere Island, in Canada, he found the ruins of a hut erected by a previous arctic expedition in the island’s northeastern shore. The hut was a three-room building built with long, wooden boards, and covered with tar paper, but such type of construction was notoriously difficult to keep warm during the freezing polar winters. Peary found the building utterly unfit for habitation, and so he had the building torn down and rebuilt several smaller quarters in its place. For the next thirty years, Peary’s huts—named Fort Conger—played an important role in several high arctic expeditions.
The original Fort Conger was built in 1881 by explorers of the Lady Franklin Bay Expedition led by Lt. Adolphus Greely of the Fifth United States Cavalry. The crew was dropped on the island by the ship Proteus on August 11, 1881, with ample food and fuel to survive and explore comfortably for a year or so.

These will only take a few seconds of your time. Unless you play them several times.
First, the John Williams' "Cantina Theme" from the original Star Wars film.

This project isn't really a game, I just wanted to offer people the opportunity to slam dunk on Donald J. Trump. I'm not a game dev at all, I hardly know what I'm doing, but much like Donald Trump, I didn't let ignorance or lack of technical competence get in the way of my dreams, which is to let people vicariously dunk on Donald J. Trump.

Ah, that addicting white powder.
Have you ever felt the tiring effects of a “food coma” or “sugar crash” after eating candy or a big meal? According to researchers in New Zealand, simple sugars really do slow a person’s brain down and makes you lose focus.

Scientists often hope to break ground with their research. But a group of Australian researchers would likely be happy with breaking wind. The team developed an ingestible electronic capsule to monitor gas levels in the human gut. When it’s paired with a pocket-sized receiver and a mobile phone app, the pill reports tail-wind conditions in real time as it passes from the stomach to the colon.

To add to our Wednesday Wideo Woundup, an epic clip... just 3:44 of your time.
Remember the Line Rider video that was synced to "Hall of the Mountain King"? That took a lot of work, but now imagine how much work went into synchronizing a real-world marble run to classical music! The same YouTuber, DoodleChaos, used Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers" to design this intricate marble run. It uses steel balls, magnets, dominoes, levers, gravity, and exquisite timing as it builds to a musical climax. Like the waltz, this chain reaction is a thing of beauty.
