…The Bassett Collection is amazing?

The Bassett CollectionThough they’re a bit on the graphic side, the Bassett Collection of dissection photos is a fascinating look into the inner workings of the human body.

Now, thanks to Stanford University Medical Center, you too can view these amazing images on Flickr.

It’s only part of the massive collection, but it’s beautiful in an informative sort of way.

…Math can make shoes?

Reebok Maeda

You don’t often see professors designing shoes, but John Maeda, a professor at the MIT Media Lab, is showing the world that smart people can have style too.

The shoe that he created, called the Reebok Timetanim, is based on the Reebok Ventilator, and features graphics that were created using an original mathematic algorithm and computer code. Even the interior lining is mathed out, with a reprint of the original, hand-written calculations that Maeda used to create the design.

It’s a limited edition of 100, so if you want a pair, make sure you head on over to Reebok Custom on November 13th and reserve one, because math is beautiful.

…Cocaine is bad for the brain?

Caution: This video is very graphic.

In Australia, they apparently don’t have to hold back for their PSAs like they do in the US.

To teach people the dangers of cocaine, this clip follows a man as he enters a bathroom, peels back his head, and then proceeds to snort down a little piece of his own brain.

It gets the message across loud and clear, but is definitely not for the squeamish.
