If you find yourself wanting upgrade your Mac's Bluetooth 2.1 support with a USB dongle that supports Bluetooth 4.0, here's a tip for you to get it working with those cheap but unsupported Bluetooth 4.0 USB dongles you can find posted on eBay.

Belongs in the "finally someone said it" category. 
A Daily Life columnist started a hashtag the other day called #questionsformen, as a way to vent her frustrations over people criticizing her writing. Feminists tweeted a series of ignorant questions that deserved answering, so here are the answers ladies. We're here to pop your princess bubbles.

Around 2002, I went on a shopping spree at WalMart and bought about 10 pairs of these awesome patterned, cotton, soft-knit boxers -- including two pair covered in little smiley face emojis. I'm down to 4 pair now, with one of the smiley ones almost literally on its last threads. (Worry not. I use them now primarily as pajama shorts). So... if you want to be my girlfriend, I'll gladly let you buy me some new pairs of underwear for Christmas. :-D

Brilliant. But must be careful that penalty system doesn't become a means for producing and echo chamber / mechanism for reinforcing groupthink. One way to defeat that is to have a lottery system for the lower %tile papers. After the global list has been compiled, 1 of lowest %ile papers wins the lottery and is accepted, 2 of the 2nd lowest %ile are accepted.

Fail. I was sooo hopeful that the video would live up to the promise of its title. Alas. I have indeed wondered for this years. I can visualize in my mind the physics, but it us hard to translate into words. And while you've done a great job of explaining what ISNT happening, you've done a poor job of what IS.
Take for instance your T shirt, "I <3 Physics". In the mirror, it's clearly reading backwards, but not because you flipped it. If you were to stand at a 90-degree angle to the mirror, with the camera at an iso angle to you both, the word would appear horizontally flipped but not vertically. It has nothing to do with your flipping it.

Of in the above scenario, you hold the arrow to your right, it will appear to the viewers to point to our left, but the mirror will show you pointing to our right.

The above phenomena are actually the z-axis flipping at work. But that explains nothing of interest. The Z axis flipping should result in the appearance of a vertical flip. And given the right angles, it does.

Imagine the mirror if place above your head, with its x-axis at 90 degrees (incidental) to the camera, but with its y-axis 45-degree downward tilt. Do we viewers see you vertically flipped, horizontally flipped, or both? The answer is both! See for instance http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fc/Cloud_Gate_boy_reflection.jpg

So by changing the mirror's placement and angle, we can affect whether or not the vertical axis is flipped, but we can't change whether or not the horizontal is flipped.

There is something else going on here, something not explained by "scisyhp" (nor by magic) but (I suspect) by a component of the brain.

And thus with baited breath I await from you a clearer explanation.

Very well done.... but I found its much easier to detach those ribbon cables than to attach them. Perhaps you could go in slow MO or show in better detail how to reattach each of those connectoreless cables?

Nice idea, but overall, a fail. Sorry guys. When it comes down to it, the problem was the music and lyrics.
