This particular Worth1000 contest makes me smile (due to the happy nature of the theme) and I'm guessing it might have the same effect on you as well. The world needs more happy signs, doesn't it? NO PARKING.

Observation of the morning: adding a random zipper to a photograph can either make it cool or just really creepy in a matter of seconds. Use at your own discretion.

Behold the almighty power of a Geminid meteor as it streaks across the Mojave Desert of California.  These meteors are apparently quite easy to see since they move slower and are essentially just comet leftovers. The real lesson here is that leftovers can be a good thing after all.
