funny juxtaposition

This is a story about a skydiver who survived a 12,000 ft fall when his chutes failed, with video.

And these are magnified images of bugs killed on windshields.

Both things that go splat (or normally would go splat in the case of the skydiver), and both hit on a theme I often think about, which is how the scale (both physical and temporal) of events affects our perception of them.

found both here, a good site for the odd story here and there and a lot of stories about geeks hating the RIAA and Microsoft.
