Maybe this should be on Cigar Lounge, maybe it should have a buffer image. I’m not going to do that though, I’m just going to dive into the FBI statistics regarding murder and guns in the United States. Let’s start with the murder rate in the U.S. from 1993 to 2012. This data is taken directly from FBI statistics, the…
My YouTube suggestions included this video of the rail gun that I posted about the other week. During testing they fired the gun with zero elevation and the projectile traveled 7km downrange. It didn't say how high the gun was off the ground, but from the video clip it didn't appear to be very high.
One slight problem, it is in Russian. Not sure if there are captions available, I'm on my potato. But the video does show detail shots of the undercarriage and suspension and other goodies.
In celebration of Canadian oppo saving the day, here is a Subaru in the snow. Its in Sweden and driven by a Norwegian, but that is close enough for me.
This might fall under NSFW. Its Jennifer Anniston testing vibrating bra inserts on the Ellen show. Don't judge me for my youtube searches, I figured searching for "testing, testing, testing" would be safe.
Turns out hockey announcers are pretty tough too. MSG’s John Giannone takes a puck to the face and carries on a conversation with the booth guys while the trainer is fixing his face.
Cool article http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/blog/50917/shark-eating+seal+among+rare+and+stunning+scenes+documented+off+south+africa/ with excellent pics of sharks feeding off South Africa. There are also photos of a seal killing sharks. I would post pics from it, but they clearly state that they are copyrighted for…
Really cool article on a guy messing with the phone system back in the day. Long read but worth it IMO.
So I was going through the www.speedhunters.com thing on the Porsche 962. I've wondered for a long time, why are all the LeMans cars RHD?
Not sure if this has been posted, but they've updated the article with video. HOLY CRAP THOSE ARE BIG WAVES.
The Herbst maneuver. That looks so unnatural to see an airplane flying that slowly at such a high angle of attack.
A long while back somebody posted some nice screw connectors for electrical connections. Anybody remember that info or where I can find it? Or does anybody know a good online electrical supply retailer?
The latest video from the Slo-Mo Guys. One of my favorite YouTube channels.
Went to sleep last night around 22:00 and it was ~30F and mostly clear. Woke up at 06:00 and the thermometer said ~30F. I thought "sweet". Headed out the door and the motion light on the garage lit up the 6" of snow we got overnight. Picture related.
Here is a little something to help give you just a little bit of faith in humanity.
Inspired by Snapundersteer and reposted from my response to him. Don't carry more speed than you have talent.
This is just a surreal image. From this photo gallery about a warehouse fire in Chicago.
Somebody last night posted an article from Air & Space about a Burt Rutan designed plane. Which got me surfing the A&S website and lead me to this article http://www.airspacemag.com/history-of-flight/Disaster-at-Xichang-187496561.html?c=y&story=fullstory. The story is just gut wrenchingly horrific. Posted video…
So the F150 was due for an oil change the other day. Had a friend pick it up for me as he is a mechanic at the dealership and my house is on the way for him. Got it back from the dealer, full service oil change, air filter changed, no time out of my day to deal with it. Balance... $0.00. Whose got two thumbs and…
