This is my favorite Venn diagram EVER!
Seriously, we have 311 million people in this country and we can’t find eleven who can play soccer well enough to get our soccer team into the Olympics? We should be able to field regional teams good enough for that, given our population and obsession with sport.
Well, maybe this is the kick in the grass we need to be ready for World Cup qualifying. Sheesh.
This BBC trailer for minute twelve second video of Doctor Who goodness, complete with the old west, a pharoh, Matt Smith geeking over anachronistic electric lights and Amy Pond in an Old West shootout. Should be one heck of a new season for the Doctor.
The frustrating thing is that this won’t show in the United States until the fall, while those rats in Great Britain get it in just a few weeks. Damn.
This video of hand-bound (with a good bit of mechanical support, but still) and numbered books is awesome, and for those of us who love to hold a book in our hands quite pleasing.
Unfortunately I lost the thread of who I got this from. I am so sorry to whatever site led me to this.
In May I am traveling all the way across the country to San Francisco for business. I am not a very good traveler, and so was not looking forward to the flight even though I was looking forward to meeting the folks out there who have successfully built what we are trying to build here in New Jersey.
But now I am STOKED (yes, that is me screaming) to be heading out to the Bay area of California because I can get my dinner delivered by helicopter drone.
Yeah, you read that right. I can use my HTC Incredible smart phone to beam my GPS to the Tacocopter dudes and they will send the drone to wherever I am standing. It’s fast, geo-located food!
My excitement is a little tempered by the fact that they advertize, unlinked, LobsterCopter on the east coast where I live and there’s no such thing. So I suspect this is a hoax that the NetoRama folks (where I first learned about taco helicopter delivery) didn’t post.
But if it’s real I’ll order these dang things and eat them even if they don’t have non-cow and non-pig ones (fish or chicken is fine with me!). In fact, I’ll probably order them even if it is a hoax. Because it’s that kind of awesome!
