I ran track in high school, so I've known about the mystery holes on sneakers for quite some time. Thumbsup I recently passed the knowledge on to some people at the pizza shop who kept getting blisters. It's one of those things that you think everyone knows, but it's really a secret to everyone.

man i dunno... i feel like that video opened my eyes to A Whole New Woooooorld for some reason. i've been an athlete my whole life and pretty much every running shoe i've ever owned had those extra holes and i never knew why... until now. makes me wonder what else in life i've been ignorant about. if the comments to the video are any indication, i'm not the only one that feels this way.

"Netflix doesn't work in your country, yet" Can someone clarify for those less fortunate than yourselves? What movie are you guys talking about?

europa report. i might have to watch it, surprisingly good numbers for a horror flick i've never heard of.

seriously though, who wouldn't be stoked if they actually found space monsters? but then maybe it's just cuz i'm a huge fan of scifi horror that to see it be real would be more like a dream come true than a nightmare. i think i'd only actually be scared if something like the predators were real. buncha animals? not so much.

I think the most interesting thing is how in newer games since the NVidia 9-series has been released have been tweaked for Maxwell only, but 6 and 7-series (Kepler) have not been tweaked. They mentioned they've seen several games this year where a 960 beats a 780, whereas games before the 9-series was released the 780 beats the 960 easily.

if what i've read about the new radeons is true, that's the upgrade route to take. supposedly revolutionary new memory architecture that's 6x faster than current as opposed to the incremental steps we're taking with GDDRx. also the cards themselves are going to be much smaller since all the memory will be stacked on top of the GPU. and it comes out midsummer as opposed to the next gen geforce which supposedly wont hit till 2016.

Fuck that. I want to see some more high definition photographs of Ceres. Unless NASA starts releasing some images soon Im gonna start crying conspiracy....

nono, fuck THAT, it's time to drop a minisub into the subsurface ocean on europa. ceres is just another rock. if you're talking about the bright spots, they're almost certainly just pockets of ice reflecting sunlight. the wiki article has some recent photos.

Dude, we've already been to Europa. In fact, there's even a documentary you can see about that trip.

i mean, if they do find horrific nightmare monsters? even more awesome!

hey guys if you're an astronomy buff you should check out that star-forming clump article, mainly for the featured comment from someone working on various telescopes including the JWST. really insightful stuff about the origins of the HST and the future technology required to actually image an exoplanet.

"In my world, broadband is incredibly competitive," Marcus said.

Is this true for any blues readers? I always find this kind of remark baffling. Granted, I've only lived in Texas, but here, there is never more than 1 single broadband provider for a particular address. Sometimes there are 0. The sole exception is the newly launched but quite limited Google Gigabit in parts of Austin.

in LA you do have many options. i have TWC, but i could get atnt, verizon fios, or several other options i don't care to look up. but of course i know i'm the exception rather than the rule.

Here's one from Ontario.

Truck passes a snowplow hitting another truck.

Driver of other truck later found and charged

Damn, that poor guy. Here's the story of them catching the other driver.

Two data points is only anecdotal, not of any statistical significance, but I noticed the names of both men (both the truck driver and the Camaro) were Indian-ish: Akmal Hayat and Kiran Thapa. India has about the same number of cars and Britian, but nearly six times the number of accidents. Apparently, the reason is cultural: Indians believe there's no point in being careful drivers since your fate is in the hands of the gods. I wonder if that attitude played a part here or not.

personal experience or anecdotal evidence?

it is a kiddie show so i can excuse the nobody dying thing. as far as rebels vs clone wars, i thought rebels was the far superior work. the writing is so much stronger than when george had his greedy fingerprints all over the stories. i really dig its return to the 'pitiful band' of rebels vs intergalactic empire idea, and all the individual characters are so much more interesting and complex.

makes no sense why a two hopper to a different city would cost less than a direct flight to the first city. maybe this wouldn't happen if airlines didn't try to gouge customers like that.

A couple of days ago I found myself wondering when Cinco de Mayo is held. That was not my finest moment.

...or was it!
