I almost broke my brain with a backwards bicycle for the sake of Science. I would appreciate it if you would share this video so people become aware of their own cognitive biases.

if you ever hear people talking about how they worked their way through college so today's kids should be able to too, just point out these numbers.

If you have enough data, there usually *is* one correct way to do things.
Introduction
Before you read anything, go take 4 minutes and watch this video about how awesome human engineers are - this video shows hows an accelerometer works and more awesomely, how it's actually made! (an accelerometer is the thing that tells your phone when to rotate the screen)

An eternal optimist, I'm extremely excited to be alive at this point in human history. The internet is the final step in the evolution of communication, but the first step to a greater collective human intelligence than we can possibly imagine. One person to one person by the fireside, to one person to many in village squares, to one person to many more people via printing presses and distributed literature, to radio broadcasts and finally to televised visuals across the planet, we have only ever had a unidirectional format of distribution. But in *only* the past 20 years (20 years!!!) we have gained the ability of every (connected) person to be heard and be able to reply to every other person on the planet. If you're not completely floored by that concept (and even more amazed to have witnessed it come about) then you're really missing something great.

Thanks to our 24/7, emotion-based info-tainment media machine, we see way more about the world than at any other time in history. And depending on who you're watching for your information, this can be a great problem for the larger population.

If you find yourself getting mad at a news article, there's a very real chance that you're being manipulated by that media outlet. Step back and try to empathize and truly understand what it would be like to be on the other side. Think about how the other side grew up, what their parents were like, how they eat, sleep and go to the bathroom (the basic problems of every human on the planet). If you can think about that (without making sophmoric, juvenile jokes) then you're one step closer to understanding *why* you disagree and not simply disagreeing "because they're just wrong".

We need more understanding as we face this deluge of information. The beauty is that you can understand almost anything you want, thanks to the internet.

Completely fine. Service was fine, chili cheese dog was really good, I've had good burgers here. And the beer selection is pretty huge and wide ranging. I've come here when there's no one here and its a chill place. Lately it seems there's a bit of coke hook ups in the men's room. And the Jumbo Wings were fairly emaciated.

The Mill City Museum is a neat little museum that's got some really cool old machinery. I recommend the Flour Tower tour where you sit in an old freight elevator that moves between floor and opens onto re-created scenes of the old mill. Sadly, you can't explore these sections or take photos along the Tower tour, but it's still really interesting. The Flour Tower lets you out at the top of the mill (7 or 8 stories up) where you can look around the old vacuum system as well as look out onto the Mississippi and the old Washburn Mill ruins. Down in the lower level, there is more machinery, a live kitchen where they make breads (and perhaps other stuffs), and an interactive "water room" where you can play with a simulated Mississippi and try to control the river in a way to drive a number of water wheels. Overall, the venue is small, but well done. I appreciated that it wasn't crowded and i could take in as much as i wanted. There was also a good presentation of C. C. Washburn that was pretty entertaining as well - it really drove home the magnitude of the mills production in its heyday.
