Hey Jamie. It's as simple as it looks. I throw the ball up along the groove of my back. It usually touches the base of my neck before starting to fall. This gives it that delay effect when I switch hands to catch it.

Good luck!

This morning on my way to work, I saw a cyclist who had been crushed by a delivery truck. It was impossible to tell if it was a he or she, dead on the road. The fragments of the cycle scattered at least 6 meters in every direction. It had been an explosive hit. 

The police had done as best they could to cover the situation, but the mess was apparent, and the body visible if you passed on the side that I did. Surprisingly, my first instinct was to feel awful for the people who had probably witnessed the event first hand.

As I continued my ride to work I experienced a complex mix of emotions. Wondering who's fault it had been, knowing how many close calls I myself have had dodging traffic both on and off my right of way, I was also stunned to see more cyclists on the road at once than I think I've ever witnessed in the morning; so many of them unaware of what was just down the road, many having simply not looked at the accident as they rode by.

I rode a tad more carefully the rest of the way, but among my conflicted emotions I actually came away with more inspiration and more determination than fear, reticence or caution. 

Life is short guys, and though we work ourselves to the bone to create a "safety net" for the future, tomorrow we could get hit by a delivery truck, and the only thing we could do to avoid it is hole up at home like a paranoid rabbit. Its smart to plan, its good to have an outlook, in fact I posted something just the other day about looking at where you are going, not where you are about to step, but you should never, NEVER be living a shitty day today, justifying it as outcome for tomorrow.

I've been both criticized and admired for my lifestyle choices, people not realizing how young I am, or how hard I work, but you know what? I'm just getting started, and if I die tomorrow I'll have felt good about what I've accomplished, and if I die in 30 years, I hope to have the same pride for what I've done.

So if you hate your job, if your relationship sucks, if you work to hard and don't know why. Stop. Right now. Its not fucking worth it. 

You can't expect to receive something you've never had without doing something you've never done. So take some risks, put yourself in a hard place because ultimately even if your days still suck, you'll be doing it for you, not something you don't care about. 

I'm now going to go help people, change lives, and prepare my next set of worldly adventures, and I'm still going to ride my bicycle like a maniac because I enjoy it, and you can think that's stupid, I don't mind, but who has a better time getting to and from work than I do...?

Thanks for reading.

If there is anything left on my list of "products to design", its cars. I've done toys, games, digital products of many kinds, and some outdoor gear, but cars, man that would be fun.
 
Another tough evening of UX reviewing.. Interior redesigned in 12 obvious places, ui overhaul of the console drafted and fed all 420 horses.

When can we lease these?
