Technology is incredible. The fact that we now have cheap and accessible virtual reality technology usable enough to plan an extraordinarily complex pediatric heart surgery in a matter of days or weeks is mind blowing.

Surgery on Teegan Lexcen's heart defect was made possible by Google Cardboard, a $20 piece of virtual reality technology.

A new project by Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh sought to explain just how vast our local neighbourhood of planets, dwarf planets, asteroids and comets really is, by building the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits.

So, last year I posted this.

Today, I passed my checkride and received my Private Pilot Certificate!  Not quite by my 30th birthday, but better late than never.  :D

I recently decided to pick up a new hobby that I've wanted since I was a little kid. My first flight took place Jan 1, and I'm hoping to get my Private Pilot License by my 30th birthday in May.

Wish me luck!

This guy could bring a bow to a gun fight and still win.
 
Man I love the internet.  This guy has insane archery skills.  Insane!!  (In the membrane!!)

He can split incoming arrows.  He can grab an arrow that is being shot at him out of the air and shoot it back at you in a split second.  He can grab the arrow that you shot at him out of the air and kill you with it!

MOOCs take the next step:  University of Illinois is now offering an MBA entirely through Coursera for about $20,000.  Awesome seeing this technology take such a huge leap in just a few years.

And while the MBA program requires an application and money to earn, all of the classes are available online, for free, to anyone.  Learn for free.  Pay for accreditation.

https://www.coursera.org/course/imba
Take free online classes from 115+ top universities and educational organizations. We partner with schools like Stanford, Yale, Princeton, and others to offer courses in dozens of topics, from computer science to teaching and beyond. Whether you are pursuing a passion or looking to advance your career, Coursera provides open, free education for everyone.

"It's true that [NASA associate administrator Robert Lightfoot] and his colleagues hope that the Asteroid Redirect Mission will help protect Earth from any future catastrophic collisions. But frankly, our track record for not getting hit with giant asteroids is pretty good ..."

This is the kind of statistic where the phrase "reversion to the mean" becomes really scary.
