I highly recommend it.  Tons of fun.

This is the one I bought:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YSCCET6

Mostly good reviews.  Not sure if they're bogus or I got a bum unit along with the other few bad reviews.

On the wikipedia page for annual medical exams:

"Evidence does not support its use by the general population."

I agree it's hard to believe.  One wrinkle is that a beer is 1.4 drinks apparently.

It turns out that many of the old forest fire lookouts can be rented for overnight stays.  They look pretty bare bones but the views are amazing.

Here's one near lake shasta:  http://www.recreation.gov/camping/Hirz_Mountain_Lookout/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=75234

And a list of available lookouts in Calfornia: https://www.google.com/search?q=lookout+site:www.recreation.gov+CA&hl=en

So cool -- thanks for reminding me about these! I remember hearing about them on NPR years ago, but had forgotten to book a trip. This is definitely on my list of things to do this summer.

Exercise is good for you, for many reasons, but studies show consuming less food is the key to weight loss.

It is true that exercise itself burns very few calories when compared to what is provided by a Big Mac. But it's clearly not about quantity of food, but quality. Avoiding sugars and grains is more important than calorific content.

Anyone with $1.8M to spare who likes to live in squalor on a busy street?  Crazy times.

I should have added some details.  Nate Silver is the guy who's been doing the super accurate election forecasting.  

He licensed the name of his blog to the new york times in 2010 and wrote for them for a few years.

ESPN ended up buying the fivethirtyeight brand and committed a lot of resources into it to expand it into areas like economics and science.

The ESPN-owned site just launched last week.

Check out a new ios game called Threes!
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/threes!/id779157948

Not yet available for android.  Somewhat odd given how simple it is.
Get Threes! on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
