So this surfer (Tom Dosland) attempts to ride this monster wave and... let's just say it didn't end well. 

His stunning free fall lasts 2.88 seconds.

So how far does he fall?

If my memory of high school #Physics is correct 

S = Vi t + 1/2 a t^2

Assuming his initial velocity is zero our equation looks like this.

S = 1/2 a t^2

a is our acceleration due to gravity on earth assuming no air resistance, which is 32 ft/s^2

t is our time in free fall.

S is the distance traveled.

Plugging in our numbers

S = 1/2 (32 ft/s^2)(2.88s^2)

S = (16 ft/s^2)(8.29s^2) 

S = 132.7 feet

That's one horrifically long fall. #ScienceFTW

P.S. The earth is round
While some may be intimidated by the size of the famous "Jaws" wave in Peahi, Hawaii, no wave scares surfer Tom Dosland. But that doesn't mean his rides always go smoothly...

Got my new #Shure #SM7B #microphone and it sounds sweet!

The quality is so good I won't ever have to post-process audio again!

Thanks,

I've heard good things about the Blue Yeti so you should be good.

My $150 audio technica AT2020 USB is actually really good and has served me well for years but I am a bit of an audiophile (as you are) and am constantly desiring "just a little more".

I've been eyeing the Shure SM7B for a while and am happy with the results.

Just in time for the New Year. My favorite #TimeTracking Website/App: #toggl

Dead simple to use and helps you stay laser focused on task!

Good for individuals looking to quantify their efforts, or teams looking to seamlessly record time metrics.

This is without a doubt the best sign/logo I have ever seen. Look at it closely to fully appreciate its design.

Dude climbs one of the Egyptian pyramids. Provides a view and perspective not many ever get to see. The pyramids are even more impressive from this vantage point.

If you played with Google's #StarWars #AwakenTheForceWithin promotion and selected either the light or the dark side, you will notice an annoying light saber sound every time you hover your mouse over the volume control of a YouTube video.

To make this stop, go back to the promotion page (google.com/starwars) and switch your "side" back to the middle (i.e. Not dark, not light). This will disable that annoying effect. #EnoughWithTheForceAlready

Awaken the Force within you. Choose a side and your Google apps will follow your path.

Everything they sell is delicious. It's not cheap, but good food never is. If you want an authentic French bakery experience without having to pay for a flight to France, don't miss La Farm. By far my favorite breakfast joint in the area.
