Video: Slugs should be so much cooler to watch. They have antennae that wriggle around and their method of forward motion is weird. But they are just so damn slow. You feel the slug's pain and respect its patience but you don't really want to look very long. Whether it's moving at 20x or 40x, timelapse is truly the way to watch a slug do its thing.

Video: The New York Public Library's Rose Main Reading Room is one of the most majestic spaces in the city. Unfortunately it's been closed for repairs for two years after an ornamental plaster rosette fell from the ceiling. But after fixing that, reinforcing the other 900 rosettes with steel cables and restoring the ceiling, the beautiful 24m by 90m room, with 16m-tall ceilings, finally re-opened to the public. The finishing touch in getting the reading room ready was filling the empty shelves back up with books. You can watch them do it in this time lapse.

It almost defies belief what modern science is capable of. Take this facial reconstruction of Meritamen, a mummified Egyptian woman who may have lived anywhere from 2000-3500 years ago. The reconstruction was conducted by scientists and researchers from Monash University, the University of Melbourne, the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine and many others.

Video: Watching flowers bloom in a timelapse is always fun because they sprout up in this graceful, almost balletic way. Artist Yoshiyuki Katayama somehow managed to add bugs crawling to that dance of flowers which makes it even more lovely to see because it's like watching life happen at two different speeds all at the same time.

Video: Man, building an aircraft carrier is just like playing with Lego bricks! At a much, much larger scale, of course. Here is footage showing how the final section of the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier the HMS Prince of Wales was slapped on top of the ship. The piece, known as Aft Island, weighs 750 tonnes and will control aircraft operations on the carrier.

Get sick? Pop a pill. Feel sad? Pop a pill. Too excited? Pop a pill. Took too many pills? Pop a pill. Pills are the correct answers to most of life's problems because chemistry is a hell of an art and the human body is easily unbalanced. But the inoffensive pill shape hides some gnarly things, just take a look at this time lapse of pills dissolving from The Time Lapse Blog. It reveals the magic potion that hides inside each pill.

I literally gasped in disbelief when I first saw this timelapse by Toby Smith of the Gunhilde Maersk at sea. It goes from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Ningbo, China and the night scenes are unbelievable. The skies are salted with glittery stars and the lights of the port cities paint the horizon in a sort of ethereal fire and the container ship shines through the sea in an illustrious green and it's all the most amazing thing to see.

Los Angeles is too big and unwieldy to be considered a real city, especially since the only aspect of city life is the collective bumper-to-bumper spurts on the freeway during rush hour. Not to mention that its machine is responsible for so much that is awful in mainstream culture (celebrities! plastic surgery! excess!) that you might think that LA is a terrible place filled with beautifully terrible people. Nope!
