The most awe-inspiring photo I've recently seen.
 
"Torres del Paine" means "blue towers"...here you see why. The photo was taken early in the morning before sunrise.

'Torres del Paine" heißt nichts anderes als "blaue Türme" und hier kann man ganz gut sehen, warum. Das Foto wurde früh am Morgen vor Sonnenaufgang gemacht...

This photo really strikes me. An anthropologist took it in 1904, but it doesn't look nearly that old because the subject is smiling.
There are 4 theories about why people never smiled in old photos, and they explain a lot about photography and culture.

Interesting.  Thanks for posting. I watched it all.  I alway like Star Trek and followed him on Twitter.  My father always like the Spock character for his lack of emotion.

It's at the Wyndham resort at Jiminy Peak, +Colin McMillen​, and their pool has one of those indoor/outdoor setups joined by a door with mud flaps to keep the cold air out. There's also an outdoor hot tub, in which we noticed that our hair froze.

Money quote: Dolgov [the software lead for the self-driving team] described one circumstance that (correctly) puzzled the car into submission recently: it turned out to be a person in a wheelchair chasing a duck with a broomstick. In circles. In the middle of the street. "This is not something we likely would have anticipated," he says. "And this is not something you can very accurately model."
Here’s everything you need to know about Prototype.

Well, they've solved that problem.
I’m reluctant to write about the fact that KFC has apparently disrupted the fast-food industry with an edible coffee cup. The primary reason for this is it seems like the type of story, found on the ficklest Internet promenades, that exists only to make people (me) feel stupid for believing...

Back up car. Create sculpture. Profit! (Nitpick: North Carolina's temperature is not cold. It is merely quite freezing.)
A parked Jeep pulled out and left this frozen imprint.

Introduction
Ed lives in Arlington, Massachusetts.
Bragging rights
Won a limbo contest. Entered a Taco Bell drive thru on foot and when he was refused service, convinced the driver of the car behind him to secure his food. Walked the entire River Thames from barrier to source. Climbed up the highest thing in most of the cities he's visited. Has two wonderful daughters (though admittedly one of them drools a lot).

It's a serviceable bridge with great views, but should be named the MIT Bridge, not the Harvard Bridge. I mean, look at the map and try to argue. See?

Spectacular food. I ate here on four occasions over the course of a couple weeks and tried a different dish each time. I suspect even non-vegetarians would like the cuisine.

Shelburne Fam is a lot of fun. The problem is, multitudes of people know it's a lot of fun, and there's more demand for an apple-picking, animal-petting, pumpkin-filled country store venue near Boston than there is supply. Expect to encounter crowds throughout autumn -- and sometimes lines of cars to get into the nearly full parking area. That said, it's worth if if this is the sort of thing you're looking for, and it's possible you will never find better cider donuts anywhere on Earth (pro tip: the plain ones are better than the cinnamon and sugar ones).
