Can you remember what you did last year? New York based animator Cesar Kuriyama can -- because he filmed one second snapshots of his life every day for the past year.
The clips -- which begin with his thirtieth birthday -- were then edited together into a six minute video which has become an online hit.
Covering everything from world changing events to the banality of everyday life, Kuriyama says he was so pleased with the outcome, he plans to do the same for the rest of his life.
Kuriyama says the project encourage him to do more with his life because even spending just a few days on the sofa would impact the video.
We've always been of the opinion that no matter how good your photo of a lion is, it's no use if you had your head bitten of three seconds after taking it.
That's why we're impressed by the ingenuity of nature photographers William and Matthew and Burrard-Lucas who came up which a canny way of not going home from Kenya minus their noggins.
The brothers very wisely decided that the best way of getting near to the lions would actually be to keep their distance and just send their DSLRs to capture shots including a male feasting on wildebeest on the plains of the Masai Mara.
So they set about creating a device known as BeetleCam -- a DIY contraption which is remote controlled and houses their DSLRs -- and could be operated from the safety of an open-top Land Cruiser.
