Connecting the five boroughs to one another is no easy feat, which at least partially explains the 468 operating stations and 209 miles of routes that comprise the New York City Subway. It all goes to good use, though; in 2011 over 1.64 billion rides were delivered to denizens of the Big Apple.
Vanderbilt Baseball 2013 Preview -
Been rolling out my VU Baseball Previews.
The Hitler Game -
That link leads to a random Wikipedia page. From your random page, the goal is to try and get to Hitler’s page through only following links. Don’t cheat and click on something you think won’t get you to the page, you have to try to reach it. You win if it takes you less than six clicks.
IS THIS THE NEW MAPCRUNCH
Open Source Cola > Halal > Kashrut > Holocaust theology > Adolf Hitler
This is so fun.
Who knew Hitler could be so fun!
Edit: I apparently didn’t get the game at first. Need the random page:
Perinetia > Animalia > Carl Linnaeus > Sweden > World War II > Hitler
Went with the World of Sports, starting with the Head Baseball Coach of my beloved Commodores (admittedly, I figured I could get there via the Commodore rank). Tim Corbin > Vanderbilt Commodores > Captain > US Navy > WWII > Hitler Then my favorite sport which I still believe is only half real, Sepak Takraw (the eastern Asian volleyball-like sport). Sepak Takraw > World Games > Olympic Games > 1936 Olympic Games > Hitler
No matter how long the slinky is, the bottom of the slinky will stay still (hover) until the top reaches it. Even if the slinky is over 1000 feet long.
This was a fantastic episode of Veritasium. Maybe the best. The recoil of a slinky, stretched under its own weight, is a pretty fantastic physics problem, especially when you capture it in super-slo-mo.
Check out the original video here. And the analysis here. And of course Derek had to take it to another level and drop a slinky from the top of a building.
Eff everything about this Fox Headline. NRA = Rights Group. Gun Control proponents = a Lobby. I guess Rupert Murdoch is not putting his money where his tweet is.
Just ate three oatmeal raisin cookies for a late breakfast / pre-lunch.
