Penn & Teller

Magic tricks and shows are always fun. Penn & Teller are both good and funny guys. I was also a big fan of their TV show "Bullshit!". It was nominated for 13 Emmys and was the longest-running series in the history of the network (Showtime). The show tackled the fakes and frauds behind such topics as alien abduction, psychics and bottled water. Both Penn and Teller has also written several books. (I have one of Penn's books)

Frisk utan flum Swedish

Bra information om kost, träning och hälsa, baserat på vetenskap. Jessica Norrbom och Maria Ahlsén brinner för att sprida forskningsbaserad kunskap om hälsa, kost och träning och har båda doktorerat vid Karolinska Institutet. De har bl.a. skrivit böckerna “Frisk utan flum” och “Frisk utan fusk”. Är du intresserad att läsa böckerna så kan man köpa dem hos t.ex. Bokus eller Adlibris.

Bill Gates

Entrepreneur and businessman Bill Gates and his business partner Paul Allen founded and built the world's largest software business, Microsoft. In the process, Gates became one of the richest men in the world. In February 2014, Gates announced that he was stepping down as Microsoft's chairman to focus on charitable work at his foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Now dedicating his life to help people/humanity.

Jim Lee

As a comicbook fan, Jim Lee is one of my favorite pencillers along with John Byrne and a couple of others. Jim has drawn X-Men, WildC.A.T.s, Superman and Batman among others. If you are interested, you can also search YouTube to find inspiring drawing videos by Jim.

Todd McFarlane

Anoter talented and well known comicbook penciller. Known for drawing Hulk, Spider-Man and Spawn among others. If you are interested, you can also search YouTube to find inspiring drawing videos by Todd.

Near Mint Condition

More for us comicbook nerds. Omar and his friends from Near Mint Condition talks about comicbooks and collected editions and graphic novels. Mostly from Marvel and DC, but from others as well.

Lawrence M. Krauss

Theoretical physicist. Best-selling author. Filmmaker. Science & public policy advocate. I have his book: "The Greatest Story Ever Told...So Far" (the Swedish edition, titled: "Den största berättelsen - hittills"). Have only read a few pages so far, but it is very interesting and enlightening.

Sir David Attenborough

One of the most widely respected TV broadcasters and has become known as the face and voice of natural history documentaries. His career in broadcasting has stretched over more than a half a century from 1952. I do not think he has a Twitter account himself, but hopefully this one below represents him well.

Adam Savage

Adam is an American special effects designer and fabricator, actor, educator, television personality and producer. Known as the former co-host, together with Jamie Hyneman, of the Discovery Channel tv-series "MythBusters". One of my favorite non-fictional TV-shows.

James Randi

James Randi began his career as a magician under the stage name "The Amazing Randi" and later chose to devote most of his time to investigating paranormal, occult, and supernatural claims, which he collectively calls "woo-woo". He has written about paranormal phenomena, skepticism, and the history of magic. He was a frequent guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, famously exposing fraudulent faith healer Peter Popoff, and was occasionally featured on the television program Penn & Teller: Bullshit!
