Favorite TweetStuff (week ending 08/27/10)

Each Friday I dip into my Tweet stream and rescue items I find amusing, weird, beautiful, and inspiring. Some of these are all of that! Enjoy!

@Flipbooks 10 Amazing Sculptures Made of Playing Cards (Woman’s Day)
[SEO: You could say this guy has way too much time on his hands, but he is often paid to make these incredible free-standing “houses of cards”. Most of them are done without any glue or sticky tricks. Besides the still photos, there are many video links that demonstrate his work. For example, watch this time-lapse video through to the end for proof of no glue.]

@awakeningaimee “The true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” ~ Nelson Henderson

@2morrowknight 22 Incredible Photos of Faraway Places
[SEO: National Geographic; photos with odd juxtaposition of man vs nature and sheer scale. Very impressive!]

@dragonheartsong “Brilliant hues encroach ~ leaves once green are transforming ~ Autumn approaches.” #haiku

@petapixel Time lapse during Perseid meteor shower
[SEO: I missed this one last week, but it’s too good to leave out. If you weren’t able to see the Perseid meteor showers, this is a stunning time-lapse view from Joshua Tree National Park. Note how you see several gazillion more stars than you ever thought possible out in the desert. Amazing.]

@BeyondMeds ‎”Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.” ~ Erich Fromm

@2morrowknight Around the World in 80 Seconds (video) (via @Flipbooks @LXLEE)
[SEO: The world looks oddly the same everywhere they go. :)]
