sentforever-sbThere are all sorts of reasons you might want to send someone a message. You may want to tell that special someone just how much you care; you may want to announce the birth of a child or some other special occasion. You could send a card or you could send the message into space on a laser beam (insert Dr. Evil laugh here).

A company called Sentforever.com is offering to send messages into space for free in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the moon landings. The messages are transmitted with a laser beam at 670 million miles an hour into deep space.

Pac man Christmas treeIt’s the season to be gobbling up power pellets and chasing flashing blue ghosts for the residents of Madrid, Spain. That is where this giant Pac-Man inspired Christmas tree can be found in all of its LED glory. Situated in the Nuevos Ministerios part of downtown, photos of the tree have appeared online but unfortunately we don’t know much else about who made it, how tall it is, how many lights were used in its making or if it’s three or four-sided like the photos seem to suggest.

Follow the link below to see a video that someone took of the tree.
