The Berklee School of Music doing a tribute to one of my favorite composers. Perhaps it isn’t your cup of tea, but I like it a lot. These students are from all over the world.
to U.S. theaters next month. Jackson was able to take existing footage from WW I and enhance and colorize it to make it more natural. Eliminating the herky jerky motion of old cameras. Amazing results. These images are over 100 years old. Sadly, about 770,000 British troops alone did not survive the war.
A great American hero gets his due…
I will be going.
First, I have a problem with Porsche making SUV’s. So we’ll just put that out there. I’m not much for SUV’s to begin with, but, this really is an abomination.

Now that the smoke has cleared and the kids are safe. A quick word about the folks who engineered this rescue.
First the divers that found them…
Then the Doctor that stayed with them…
This may be a bad idea…
This is scary…
Repair cafes are a new thing in the UK. Sounds like a neat idea. Fix your old stuff rather than throw it away.
His contributions to Physics and his ability to popularize science have secured his place in history, his triumph over motor neuron disease have made him a legend. It is rare that a real human is far more compelling a character than anything fiction could dream up.
Every year students ask me questions about quantum mechanics. And I have to say “It’s weird.” and leave it largely at that. Here’s a good reason why…
If you are interested in this idiot.
Now, he claims to have once launched himself 1,374 feet into the air, which is no small feat. But, their are radio towers and buildings that tall, so I don’t see what he’s going to prove by going up that high.
Spontaneous Human Combustion, is an interesting topic. And while there are some convincing skeptics, there are quite a few of these cases that cannot be explained, no matter how convoluted the explanation.
Well this should be amusing…
What an idiot. Perhaps he doesn’t believe in gravity either. I’m betting he backs out.
UPDATE: Looks like he’s getting ready to back out…
I must admit, I am a bit confused by this whole “flat-earth” thing. How can you disbelieve something that is so easy to prove? Science isn’t a belief system. It’s all evidence based. Belief never enters into it. It doesn’t need to because it’s about proof.
This conversation touches on many of the things I believe personally. What do you think?
You don’t want to ever be this dumb. BTW, this is why I don’t watch QVC.
Odds are Benedict Cumberbatch can’t do a good American accent though.
Yikes, These hair-raising moments are the first video footage from renowned rock climber Alex Honnold’s ascent of the 3,000-foot wall of El Capitan—without a rope. On June 3rd, Honnold became the first person ever to free solo climb this famous rock face at Yosemite National Park, California.
I guess. This has been making the rounds, and it’s both scientifically, and historically accurate, and pretty funny as well.
However, it does contain strong, inappropriate language! Watch at you own risk!
My favorite science fiction TV show is now free to view on the internet. www.go90.com is a website that streams older TV shows and they have the entire run of Babylon 5 online now. This does not seem to include the half dozen TV movies, but that’s okay. The show holds up remarkably well for a 20 year-old show and is worth watching for the amazing performances by Peter Jurasik as Londo and Andreas Katsulas as G’Kar, not to mention the great writting of J. Michael Straczynski.
Wow. If you liked growing crystals for EPS, this guy has a project you might want to try.
He simply was the originator. To me, he was more important than Elvis.
New Congress, and a new threat to online privacy. Seems like we were just fighting about this with the other party.
