The Social Rewind for March 9, 2015

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you’re missing a lot of good information?

“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this edition, Elkay Plastics shared this story about how Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and his team located the lost Japanese battleship, Musashi, after it had been missing for 70 years. Check out the amazing photos and video of the wreckage site off the Philippines.

Do you know what time it is? The world’s most accurate clock does. Tektronix’ post looks at this new optical atomic clock located at the National Laboratory for Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics in Poland.

Laboratory Equipment magazine’s post about research yielding tastier beer, had us imagining a bunch of scientists hanging out in bars for “research” purposes. “Bartender, pour us two more study subjects, please.”

If you’re worried about tsunamis what do you do? If you’re the man featured in this MAKE Magazine post, you build a 22-foot tsunami-proof Tsunamiball in your backyard.

While we’d much rather eat chocolate, this post by Instructables shows how you can use it to make fire. Hmm, fire and chocolate? Just add marshmallows and graham crackers and then you’re talking!

And we close out this week’s column with our post touting our new blog about Bevco’s line of ErgoLux Backless Stools.

There you have it…another quick look at a few of last week’s most interesting social media posts. We hope you enjoyed this week’s Social Rewind. We’d love it if you shared other interesting blog posts with us.
