Mad Quickies: Dinosaurs in High Heels, Jedi Knight With a GoPro, Infinite Dioramas and So Much More!

I saw this thing about Arabic numerals and angles on Facebook the other day and was skeptical. Well, here’s confirmation that I was right to feel that way.

Do you know what the Jurassic Park series of films has been missing? You guessed it – high heels! On everyone! And everything! Even the dinosaurs! -Via Anne

What would it look like if a Jedi Knight strapped on a GoPro camera just before battling some stormtroopers, speeders and AT-ATs? It would look just like this. (Embedded below for good measure)

    The dioramas look like they’re variations on “infinity mirrors”. The basic construction is a light source sandwiched between a one-way mirror and a regular mirror. Here are a couple Instructables:
