Hmm. If I had to guess, I'd say this fellow quite liked the new Mad Max movie.
Warning: the review is #nsfw and hilariously over the top. Rather like the movie itself apparently. 
Mad Max - Fury Road: The only review you need to read for the only movie you need to watch.

Human memory is a chancy thing.
Two people who saw a police encounter on Wednesday reported different details; surveillance videotape showed that both of them were wrong.

Just as hair matching went away when it proved unreliable, so video will eventually be more important than eyewitnesses. There will be a role for eyewitness testimony, but it will be to provide context for the material on the videotape. In the example provided in the news article, it's difficult to tell for certain what's happening in the video without the explanation.

Here's a video of the A350 flight referred to in the Aviation Week article.
Aviation Week chief aircraft evaluation editor Fred George flew left seat in Airbus’s new big twin, the A350, with Airbus chief test pilot Peter Chandler in the right seat and Christian Norden on the jump seat as safety pilot. MSN002 is unrepresentatively heavy, loaded with test equipment and wiring.

I bought a new bike from here. The staff was quite helpful, and there's a good selection of bikes. I thought the prices were fair, if maybe not the cheapest place in town. When identifying the extra items I needed, the staff exercised good judgement in balancing cost versus need. Very satisfied with my experience.
