I will have the video/audio from last night up by Wednesday.
In the meantime, here's one of those moments where I'm jealous of somebody's mental abilities. I can't even solve the smaller one. I can't imagine tackling something this large.
Tonight, there shall be shenanigans. Lots of shenanigans. We're getting started around 8pm central time. Sign in to interact with the show live! Well, on a slight delay, but live-ish! Live sounds better, doesn't it?
A nerdy Friday for you, from the ReelNASA channel. Have a good weekend, everybody. Live show Sunday!
Top Gear is likely my favorite show . . . in the world. I found out recently that Netflix carried old episodes of the show I hadn't seen. Imagine my surprise when one of the episodes in 2003 featured something I thought was only a recent development: a hydrogen powered car. Turns out GM has been developing this for quite a while, which doesn't surprise me. The fact that they had an operational vehicle in 2003 did suprise me.
Right. So this aired over 10 years ago. Why aren't we all driving one of these now? Well I suppose conspiracy theorists will have their own take, but it turns out while making hydrogen powered cars is possible, it's not really practical. To quote from automoblog.net:
"Previous fuel cell designs incorporated a sizable amount of precious metals in their construction including platinum (a metal which costs over $1500 an ounce)."
Yeah, I suppose that might be a problem. That same article I just quoted from had mentioned that GM set pre-production goals for . . . 2015. Can we hope?
Live show Sunday! I think. Probably. I don't want to commit, it's too early and we just met.
Adam from Mythbusters linked this over at his Twitter. As much as I do enjoy this site on my PC, I do think it lends itself to mobile phone viewing a bit better.
I don't really have a relevant image for this, so here's a pic of a puppy I found on imgur.
Our first live show of the year will likely be a week from Sunday. Right now that's the plan.
For this week's musical entry, enter Chase Holfelder with a minor-key take on The Police's "Every Breath You Take". The original, frankly, can be taken in a bit of a stalker vibe already. Transitioning it to a minor key just ups the creep factor tremendously. It works.
Have a good weekend, everybody.
I am a real fan of the movie Fight Club. This is not an overtly spectacular statement. The article I'm linking here, however, is full of spectacular statements revolving around theories of the movie. It starts with the flat statement that Marla is not real, and it just gets more twisted, but somehow more logical as it goes. How valid are these theories? Well, Chuck Palahniuk (the author of the book, for the unfamiliar . . . and really if you're unfamiliar, go read it. It's excellent.) linked to it over at his Facebook page. The author plans on adding more as he goes, which makes me wonder just how many times he's seen the movie. The explanations he gives are quite specific and lengthy.
