I remember when this was the best image of Pluto we had, and everyone was excited to see it. The photos released today are absolutely spectacular to those of us born before the Voyager program.

One trend conspicuously absent from this list is competitive eating, although I don't have any statistics on fatalities. However, I remember the case of a radio contest in which people competed to drink the most water without going to the bathroom, during which one competitor died from water intoxication after drinking 14 liters of water within an hour.

The worst part was, a caller warned the radio host of that possibility, but he laughed it off and kept the contest going.
Have you ever seen someone dressed so oddly that you wished a plane engine would fall on them to end their depressing existence? (Shut up, yes you have.)

That's quite an accusation from someone whose party voted for C-51.

Putin wants to talk about equality and respect? I don't think those words mean what he thinks they mean.

I've tried a little over half of these hobbies, and scored in the top 1%? It's hard to believe how few people try a lot of different activities.

If you're busy today, stay away from this site! Major quiz addiction here...
This is a long list of popular hobbies. Everything's not on here, but it's still pretty comprehensive. You never know, your next

And even if there were a reliable correlation between sunspot cycles and global temperature (there isn't), the coming solar minimum would be merely a brief speed bump in a serious long-term warming trend.
 
Sorry, but Earth isn’t heading for another ice age http://bit.ly/1CED2F3
The study's author never implied a new ice age is imminent -- only that we may see a sharp downturn in the number of sunspots.

“President Obama announced today he is continuing his policy of unconditional surrender to Fidel and Raul Castro by rewarding one of the most violently anti-American regimes on the planet with an embassy and an official representative of our government.”

Meanwhile, the most violently anti-American regime on the planet continues to criticize Obama for everything from his foreign policy to his successful health care compromise.
"It is time for our unilateral concessions to this odious regime to end..."

If you've never tried alligator, this is the place to do it. I was pleasantly surprised to visit a Louisiana-themed restaurant where the food wasn't brain-searingly spicy. The flavor of the gator came through perfectly. My wife and I decided to have an appetizer-only meal, and ended up trying six appies. In addition to the gator, the pecan-crusted brie and seafood boudin were great. The crab cake and battered shrimp were okay, but nothing special. The portion sizes for the appetizers are obviously intended for one person to enjoy before a meal, rather than for sharing. Overall, the food could use a little more spice, but they have a selection of hot sauces at the table to take care of that. I look forward to going back and trying some of their entrees.

Great shop, knowledgeable staff. I went in with a cheap clunker that was no longer adequate for my needs, and the salesperson helped me pick out a perfect bike without trying to up-sell me to something more expensive. The bike was well-adjusted and ran great right out of the shop, and they cheerfully took my old clunker to fix up and donate. And you can't go wrong with free service for the first year after buying a bike! The only reason there's a star missing is because they don't book appointments for service, and their queue for service can be several days long. However, when I explained to the owner that I didn't have access to a car, he arranged a drop-in time for me to get my initial service.
