When pdftk fails.

My go to tool for splitting up pdf files (on linux) is pdftk. On rare occasions, it just rolls over with "Unhandled Java Exception in create_output()". So far, it's always been due to to some font issue.

To fix it, use ghostscript as so:
gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -dSAFER -dFirstPage=1 -dLastPage=16 -sOutputFile=<some output file.pdf> <some input file.pdf>

Then use pdftk as usual.

Water phase awesomeness! I think the main reason the water in the bottle doesn't freeze is the (soon to be) pressurized bottle.

"Before long, I’d convinced myself that a seven-day thru-hike of the JMT—221 miles including the 10-mile descent off Mt. Whitney (the 211-mile JMT terminates at its summit), with more than 40,000 feet of elevation gain—was not only feasible: It would even, quite possibly, be fun."

"Johnny Manziel spent his first NFL start being chased and taunted by Cincinnati defenders as the Bengals rudely welcomed the hyped rookie quarterback to the league with a 30-0 demolition of the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Manziel failed to live up to the overwhelming hype surrounding his debut as the AFC North-leading Bengals (9-4-1) built a 20-point half-time lead and rolled to their fourth straight road win. Bengals rookie Jeremy Hill rushed for 148 yards and two touchdowns, backing up his postgame trash talk of the Browns following a loss to them last month.

Manziel, promoted over the slumping Brian Hoyer to spark the Browns (7-7), finished 10 of 18 for 80 yards and two interceptions. He was sacked three times, under pressure all afternoon and had Bengals players imitating his signature “money-rubbing” gesture more than once."

Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson finished scaling the sheer face of the Dawn Wall rock formation at Yosemite on Wednesday. Some consider it the most difficult free climb ever achieved.
