It is with great pleasure that I offer you these three videos for your viewing er, pleasure?
Time-lapse video filmed in Antarctica, in and around McMurdo Station and Scott Base. (Via POAKS)
If that made you feel a bit too chilly, warm up with this video of dust devils filmed on El Mirage Dry Lake in Southern California. (Via MoD)
What? Too hot now? Not as hot as this lot:
This video was pieced together using footage from a 1984 NHK documentary about nuclear war, which showed a high-tech (at the time) Godzillaesque simulation of what would happen to Tokyo if nuked by an 8-megaton bomb. The soundtrack is Sun Ra's "Nuclear War" (1982) as performed by Yo La Tengo (2002). (Via Pink Tentacle)

I loved the McMurdo Station video. I regularly read a blog from a person stationed there for a year. Thanks.
