Fascinating article, but when would you ever see a rainbow on Tatooine?
Prev · Tatooine Rainbow. Since rainbows are caused by the refraction of the sunlight by tiny droplets of rainwater, what would rainbow look like on Earth if we had two suns like Tatooine? —Raga. A planet with double suns would have double rainbows. Or rather, quadruple rainbows.

It's that time of year again! Google IO brought a plethora of announcements, some of which +Ryan Rampersad and I are excited about, some... not so much.

There's a new craze that all the kids are into these days, it's called the stellfie! Read all about this phenomenon created by my friend Stella.

Finally had an opportunity to try USB-C to USB-C charging with +Ryan Rampersad's and my Nexuses! The phones automatically choose which one should charge the other, but you can choose to change that at any time.

You don't need a parachute to skydive; you just need a parachute to skydive twice.
Introduction
Computer Tech teacher by day, podcaster/blogger/youtuber by afternoon, sleeper by night. Both my job and my hobbies involve sharing my enthusiasm with others, but I get paid for one of them.

I am a staunch technologist, I have forgotten more about Star Wars than most people ever know, and I graduated from University of Minnesota Morris with a BA in Computer Science. In summary: what a nerd.

That said, I still enjoy being outdoors; biking is my preferred mode of transportation, and camping is my idea of a weekend well spent. I am an Eagle Scout and worked at a Cub Scout camp for five summers.
Bragging rights
I have never lost a game of Star Wars: Trivial Pursuit.

i hope nobody asks what i used to spice this pot roast because im gonna have to say "everything on the spice rack". 1. anna banana bread. No

I can only speak to the rolls and green tea ice cream, both of which were great! Seems like quite the popular place, but unfortunately they do not take reservations for small groups.

Good for certain kinds of things, like cheap clothes, books, or furniture if you can find what you're looking for. I would never buy electronics or appliances here.

With a name like "Snelling Cafe" I was expecting a traditional American diner. Turns out they serve Eritrean food! I got a gyro, which was very good. I of course made a mess of it. It was rather stuffy inside, so keep that in mind if you are going during the summer.

Absolutely unbeatable prices for the items that they carry. For the most part, this means that you will just have to give up buying name-brand products; however, there are a few strange examples of missing product categories such as orange juice. I may not be able to get everything I need at Aldi, but it is the first place I go, then I fill in the gaps on my grocery list at Cub.

Fun place! It's nothing fancy, but it has what you would expect: bowling, greasy food, and even an arcade with incredibly old video games. When you throw in the kids bowl free deal in the summer, it's well worth the price.

Great traditional diner food! The wild rice soup in particular was to die for! It seems like the kind of place that has a lot of regular customers, I think I will have to become one of them.

Getting up there in price, but well worth it! Atmosphere is nice, I'm a fan of the red color scheme, especially the big mural of a bull fight with a glass shattering pattern over it. We were having a light dinner before a game at CHS field (Barrio definitely has an optimal location) so we ordered several appetizers to share. They were very good, and satisfied our appetites. Nothing was too spicy for this Minnesotan's palette, thankfully.
