Better start preparing for the holidays. Gather this stuff and get it off to the USO.

It’s easy to take the little things for granted. For most Americans, stocking up on snacks, baby wipes and Kleenex is as simple as heading to their local convenience store. But for troops stationed...

Marshall Brain wrote an excellent article warning of this more than ten years ago. http://marshallbrain.com/robotic-nation.htm 
 
More proof that we are living in the future... burger flipping robots.

May sound silly, but consider that there are over 160,000 fast food restaurants in the United States. Each of them spend over $100,000 per year on kitchen labor. Add into that the potential that the burgers made by this robot are going to be better quality and served faster than those made in a standard kitchen... as well as cheaper. Fast food restaurants will have to automate to compete once these start being deployed.

To this company's credit, they are also looking to fund training programs for people displaced their robots, to learn how maintain and repair their products.

Too true!
 
What Liberalism Is - #7

“Liberalism is saying that the government should confiscate guns from NRA members and kill them if they resist and then claiming that you have no idea why they think that they need guns to defend themselves.”

They're apparently mentally inept.

Yeah! I'm all for that sense of awe and wonder.

Fascinating work.
 
Charting culture: This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes. A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. http://youtu.be/4gIhRkCcD4U #datavisualisation

Beautiful!
 
Sunrise at Dead Horse Point State Park - Utah
View Large for Best Impact.

This shot captured last May on my first trip to the Utah arches area.  Our first morning there we went to Dead Horse State Park for sunrise.  We got there an hour or so before sunrise, giving us time to look around a bit before the sun came up.  The sky did not cooperate as much as we would have like, being pretty much a solid gray.  However, the sun came through and gave us a gorgeous glow on the red rocks below.  

For a while, it was quite an exhilarating morning, having the area to ourselves.  The quiet beauty eventually broken by the arrival of a tour bus full of tourist. 

Five bracketed frames processed in Lightroom 5 and Google/Nik HDR Efex Pro 2.  A little selective sharpening in Photoshop afterwards.

A friend and I drove from Crossett Arkansas to Monroe Louisiana - an hour drive -  to see the Exorcist. We were told not to do something stupid like get stoned .. so we drank Millery Pony's and smoked pot all the way there. I must say the movie was .. interesting. We walked out and I wasn't sure that I had actually enjoyed myself .. in fact I am pretty sure I thought all in all the trip sucked. We were out early in the night and way across there was another movie showing. We walked over and American Graffiti was playing. We went in and watched that .. and I would say I enjoyed that movie 10X better then the Exorcist.
