Last night I developed a problem where my Cherokee started acting like it was towing an armored tank. Something really heavy, anyway. From a dead stop, it was really slow to get rolling and the engine was straining. At first I thought that maybe my brake calipers were locked up, but I didn't smell them getting hot so I don't think it's that.

So now I'm thinking my transmission is shot. This is a picture of it from the drivers side. Does it look like it's hanging a little low? I can't remember what it looked like before and I may be imagining things. Did a mount or something break on the transmission?

This is a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the inline 6 cylinder engine and automatic transmission.

Yeah, I like the stuck-in-high-gear hypothesis a lot.

Watching my wife help my daughter with her college algebra homework in Mandarin is twisting my brain all up.

Am sorry to hear that...since no matter the letters or's all Greek to me in whatever language. Actually...trying this in a non-Latin language would be worse.

And I thought it was because they are happy to see us.

Humpback Whale Breaches the Ocean Surface

Ever wonder why whales do this? Although less nimble than dolphins that also often breach, whales will occasionally jump out of the water during feeding.  When the huge mass of a whale flops back onto the water it's typically over a school of fish. This in turn causes a shock wave that stuns the fish and renders them motionless so the whale can easily eat them without a prolonged chase.

Liberated from a private share. I love this guy. He's not 104 though..... Fucking sharp dresser, love it!
Fashion is something that changes with time, but certain fashions are timeless. Take this elderly gentleman, Günther Krabbenhöft, who was recently photographed in Berlin near the Kotbusser Tor station. While some other sources incorrectly reported this man’s age as 104, the grandpa himself says on his FB profile that the Internet has doubled his age. Various other sources say he's between 68-70 years old; the fact is, modern day hipsters could ta...

For the first 30 minutes or so at work tonight, my playlist was stuck on Abba and Pink Floyd. I actually stopped for a few minutes to check and make sure a bunch of stuff didn't get deleted, but it was all there. Eventually I started hearing other stuff. Weird.

I'm not up on my mythology, so can't speak to the accuracy of this. It's funny though.

The information that can be found simply by looking at photos can be amazing. In this case, according to +philippe roux :

"From this photo you can compute the speed M of the plane in Mach scale simply by measuring the Mach angle "a", the angle between the plane direction and the wave front, and using the formula 1/M=sin (a) ."

I had a physics prof talk about this years ago. That you could gauge the theoretical maximum speed of the plane based on the angles of the wings.  Essentially, if the shock wave overlaps the wing, the plane explodes.  That said, he wasn't an aerospace engineer.  And neither am I.

I don't believe I've ever seen a USB connector quite like this before. This is on a 7 port USB hub with its own wall-wart power supply.

Rotate for best reception!
I like old radios, old office equipment, and old people.

Old radios - Pre-war antique radios and record players from the late 1920's through the mid-1940's, although I'll dabble outside this range occasionally. I enjoy repairing and restoring such things, and shoot a lot of YouTube video while I do it. 

Old office equipment - Mostly old-school electronic calculators from the 1960's and 1970's.
Old people - Genealogy. I can't devote as much time to it as I would like, and I haven't done any original research. I mostly just collect and compile data already gathered by others. Maybe some day I can spend more time on it. I would really like to.

Food was good but nothing special. Just like every other Chinese buffet in town. Next time I'll go to a different one closer to my house and get the same food. Service was good.
