Out of the Blue

It's was pretty warm here yesterday, and it's going to be in the mid-40s for the next several days. The snow has melted off my grill cover, so I'm thinking of sneaking in opening day for Manstovia, but it will probably have to be today or tomorrow, as it's supposed to be rainy all weekend. I'm not laboring under the delusion that spring is actually here, but it will be nice to have a preview of the season after what's been a pretty stormy winter.

New World Map Tries to Fix Distorted Views of Earth

I just had the weirdest idea. Like you know how maps are distorted because it's projecting a mostly spherical surface onto a flat surface? Hear me out here... what if we were to do something crazy like use Advanced Video Games Technology to make a "virtual sphere" of sorts that you could manipulate and view on your computer screen?!?!

Not everyone knows Google Earth exists, don't be too hard on em

Funny side: The projection in the article is used since.. 1945 by the UN
