Should have taken a "before" pic.

As a friend of mine put it, "Sorry, Mr. President, but you asked for this."
 
This is so very wrong. And yet...and YET...

Looking for advice.  We have a very full hard drive on our home PC, which may be part of the reason it's so slow.  We'd like to move some files and back up others onto an external hard drive.  Anyone have a recommendation for a 1TB external drive with a price point under $100?

Not looking for recommendations for cloud storage services, before anyone suggests it.

Thanks!

Verra strange indeed.  Anyhow, thank you, Sandy. I went with the $99 2tb one. That should keep us busy for a while...

For those of you who have wanted a kilt but found Utilikilts a bit out of your price range, 511tactical is doing a limited run of "tactical kilts." Offer good through the end of April only. I may be expanding my kilt repertoire!

This is the most detailed and insightful analysis (and destruction) of the whole "United States as a Christian nation" drivel that we keep hearing all over the Intarwebz and from numerous halfwit pandering politicians. http://freethoughtblogs.com/carrier/archives/3314

This is sort of amazing. Sad that it wasn't more effective. Glad I don't live in Texas.

One of the funniest things I've ever seen. And I loved his (mis) use of "clip." I hope that was deliberately in-character.

I have Western Digital and Iomega drives. Both have behaved reasonably well. And both sites have user reviews.

OK, anyone know someone looking for a project for an advanced degree in physiology or exercise science?  Here's my question...

There used to be a rule of thumb in the exercise world that your maximum desired heart rate was 220-your age.  It's been pretty thoroughly debunked (and if you think about it for five minutes, it should be obvious that it's pretty unreasonable). So it seems to me that your target heart rate should be a percentage (range) of your resting rate, and a measure of your cardiac health should be how long it takes to return to your resting rate after some set amount of exercise. 

I've seen some mention of the latter, but not any solid research behind it.  Anyone know of a PhD candidate looking for a dissertation project? It would be good to have some hard numbers for exercisers to work with.  Alternatively, if you know of some research that's already been done, please share; I'd be interested.

At my gym, you take your resting rate, then it's based on a combination of your age, which percentage is right for your level of fitness, and your resting heart rate.

Just completed the "Program Manager" and "Train the Trainer" courses for the Community Emergency Response Team.  Now I can be more useful to the process of getting this program restarted in Minneapolis.  Very excited!

If you have such a program in your community, take the course.  Seriously.  If not, the website also has information on starting one.  Seriously.

Outstanding service every time! I've lived in the Twin Cities since 2001, and within two blocks of these guys for most of that time, but we just found them recently. I regret that we didn't try them first, because I don't remember the last time I felt such trust for a service station. They have been scrupulous about telling us when we did not need repairs, or that the repair would cost more than was reasonable, given the age of the car. On the other side of it, I've always been satisfied with the work they *did* do, and the prices have always been extremely reasonable. They clearly stand by their motto of "An honest repair at a fair price," which is why they'll have my business for as long as I live within reasonable driving distance of their shop. Jerry, I don't suppose we could persuade you to franchise your operation and mission statement, could I? We need more like you.
