Looking for eye-candy? As it happens that's the specialty of this page. Find below an odd assortment of links to collections of images focusing on atomic scale art, astronomy, fractals, and humor.

  • Astronomy Picture of the Day
    As the name suggests, this NASA sponsored site is updated daily and features often stunning images of the heavens. A descriptive explanation with links to additional information accompanies each image.
  • Hubble Space Telescope Image Gallery
    An excellent collection of snapshots courtesy of the Hubble Space Telescope. These spectacular images are available in a variety of sizes and formats. All are annotated and include links to related images.
  • NASA Multimedia Gallery
    Actually a collection of galleries, this page serves as a jumping off point to NASA's photo, video, audio, and art archives. An amazing amount of interesting material is collected here.

  • Fractalus
    A collection of the most spectacular fractal imagery anywhere on the web. This site contains multiple galleries each with many extraordinary images. These aren't your father's fractals.

  • Demotivational Posters
    Tired of those corporate motivational posters everywhere? The posters at this site may help. A favorite of mine shows a dust and cobweb encrusted telephone with the following: If we don't take care of the customer, maybe they'll stop bugging us.
  • Dilbert Zone
    An online version of the excellent comic strip created by Scott Adams for oppressed workers everywhere. This site includes strip archives, links to the official newsletter of Dogbert's New Ruling Class, and more.
  • User Friendly the Comic Strip
    This is a comic strip produced for the web. The content is purely for computer nerds such as myself, and completely unintelligible to normal people.

     Microscopic Oddities
  • Molecular Expressions: Beer Shots
    Ever wonder what beer looks like under the microscope? Quite pretty really. View a full collection of the world's finest beers in this gallery.
  • Molecular Expressions: Birthstones Collection
    Photomicrographs of thin slices of birthstones for each of the 12 months of the year. As with all other Molecular Expressions galleries, these images are fully annotated.
  • Molecular Expressions: Chip Shots
    Today's microprocessors are things of beauty... literally. This page links to images of chips, categorized by manufacturer.
  • Molecular Expressions: Cocktail Collection
    For those into mixed drinks or unadulterated hard liquor, find images of crystallized samples of all your favorite poisons here. These drinks will have you seeing things.
  • Molecular Expressions: Darkfield Gallery
    Captured using a variety of techniques, these photos cover everything from bug parts, to woods, stones, fungii, fur, and much much more.
  • Molecular Expressions: Pharmaceutical Collection
    A collection containing images of recrystallized samples of many commonly used drugs. There may be more drugs here than at your local Rite-Aid.
  • Molecular Expressions: Silicon Zoo
    One of my favorite sites. This collection includes a variety of doodles (some quite complex) etched in tiny detail on silicon chips by the designers of those chips. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the links to images.
  • Molecular Expressions: Vitamin Collection
    Good for what ails you. Look here for images of crystallized samples of all of the known vitamins (as well as some items once thought to be vitamins).
  • Scanning Tunneling Microscope Gallery
    A collection of atomic scale art from IBM's Almaden Research Center Visualization Lab. Here they spend their days making pretty pictures atom by atom.
