First, in the news, an American swimmer has a wardrobe malfunction mid-dive and splits his swimsuit, effectively mooning the arena.

Sometimes it's a magnification of some of my own technical weaknesses which make it a useful reminder of things to work on. Sometimes it's a newer, better way of teaching something. And today, from a rather interesting student, it was that if you twist a music stand just right, you get the small Decepticon from the second Transformers movie:
