Rally driving is epic. In many cases, neither the driver nor the co-driver have ever seen the course before. Rather, they receive pace notes, which is a written description of the course in a standardized format. And then they drive narrow single-lane roads through the woods at 100+ mph.

I suppose it's the only thing keeping you on the course (or alive, for that matter), but the constant chattering of the navigator really crushes your ability to get in 'the Zone'.  And this guy sounds like he's reciting some epic poem in Old German or something.

Finishing is my least favorite part of carpentry, but dang does it make a difference.

4:18 - How you know Eric is an aerial cinematographer. Amazing circle-pan around the table. So smooth!

That was weird. I had a headache in my sleep and kept trying to sleep it off. I finally got up around 11:30 and it was awful. I don't typically get migraines, but I think that must be what it was. Light and sound sensitivity with nausea. So I took two Ibuprofen and went back to bed and only just woke up, seemingly pain free.

I guess there goes my Sunday.

The writing is on the wall for physical media, at least in the audio market.

I tried to watch "Kill the Messenger," but already being somewhat familiar with the story, I didn't find the movie had much to offer in terms of dramatization. OMG! The star witness just revealed that he was running drugs while working for the CIA! Cut to Gary Webb looking shocked. And I'm supposed to be shocked too, except I already knew that.

Just because I already know the story doesn't mean I can't still enjoy watching the movie of the story, but this movie didn't seem to have much to add.

You know those movies or stories where they tell a story from one perspective, and then go back and tell the same story from a completely different perspective, and reveal all sorts of new things? That's kind of what being a parent is like.

and the added layer when they (like mine) are adults and can share the same stories again.

LOL. I wondered whether a DJI S1000 (a huge eight-motored camera platform) could do a flip like the smaller acrobatic quads do. It would be a gutsy move for such an expensive copter, but I figured surely somebody out there had done it, just to say they could. So I goggled "S1000 flip"... and got a zillion videos of people's S1000's having a controller issue and doing a "flip of death" and crashing.

+Jonathan LaLiberty this is your chance to be the first to put up a video of an S1000 doing a proper flip. As far as I can tell, nobody has done it yet. Do you think it's possible? I can't see any physical reason why an S1000 couldn't flip, given enough altitude, and proper tuning. Just a question of who wants to put their wallet on the line to say they've done it.

I suspect that stopping at just one flip would be the challenge there. However, you may be interested in this:

This RC car scares me a little bit more than RC planes. THERE ARE SO MANY PARTS TO A CAR'S SUSPENSION!!! Linkages. Bearings. Bushings. I have no idea how to take it apart if anything breaks.

Well, I can take it apart. Sure. Taking it apart is the easy step. Putting it back together again...

Dylan and I were building a helicopter together with Legos and I wasn't building it exactly how he wanted. He took the Legos away and started putting them together how he wanted while I watched.

As he worked, he muttered, "I'm shooting down your ideas."

I said, "Yeah. You are."

After a few seconds, he said, "Well, you have stupid ideas."

"Oh!" I said. "I feel sad that you think my ideas are stupid."

He said, "Well... your ideas are stupid."

I didn't say anything. A little bit later, he said, "Don't worry. I'm still your friend."

EDIT TO ADD: The "shooting down your ideas" comes from me telling him previously that it's not fun for me to build with him if he shoots down all my ideas. So I think he noticed that I was responding badly to him not liking my ideas. And then the "your ideas are stupid" was him being defensive, or something like it. Frankly, I think it was a really mature emotional progression for a three year old.
