Practicing front flips: price, one busted Mobius camera (insured, thank goodness) and one busted motor. The camera, I broke doing low-altitude flips over the fence. No room to mess up. The motor, I broke doing a move where I slowly turn upside down as I fly over some trees, then stay upside down for a beat while the copter floats backwards away from them. Unfortunately, there is no way to see where you're going when you do this move, and I crashed into the fence.

No flying for me this weekend, I guess. I should really buy spare motors, but I keep meaning to switch to a different brand of motor, so I don't want spares on hand. But then I never have the money together to buy four new motors at once, so I keep buying replacements one at a time.

I, too, am shocked multinational corporations advance financial interest over democratic government!

This is a spectrogram plot of the gyro data from my quadcopter, telling me what frequencies vibrations are at, which allows me to tune the low-pass filters for better flight performance.

I love data.

"Why the rich love Burning Man - Salon.com" http://www.salon.com/2015/08/27/why_the_rich_love_burning_man_partner/
The festival has become a playground for wealthy libertarians. Maybe it was never a socialist utopia to begin with

"Indeed, the idea of radical self-expression is, at least under the constraints of capitalism, a right-wing, Randian ideal, and could easily be the core motto of any of the large social media companies in Silicon Valley, who profit from people investing unpaid labor into cultivating their digital representations."

Seems like the key point right there. It's part of my ongoing struggle with burns since my first exposure.

Although Kanye's VMA speech went on for over ten minutes, perhaps the biggest thing he said was the two minutes and fifteen seconds he stood silent, soaking up applause after taking the stage. It takes a certain kind of person to avoid the urge to shush the crowd with a "thank you" after a respectful 30 seconds or so. Kanye is that person.

The only thing better was Nicki Minaj's 'fuck your tone policing' send off to Miley Cyrus.

+Clove Bovee Why not to wear your "good" glasses when mowing the lawn. Ugh. I'm such an idiot.

Smoke Mobius camera number two. What a bone-head, thinking Velcro alone would hold it on. Canopy Insurance to the rescue. I'm still amazed that they cover something like a quadcopter camera, where there is basically a 100% chance that it is going to break. Nevertheless, I'm going to keep insuring cameras with them until they turn me away. 

First camera: $80, plus $10 insurance.
Every camera after that: another $10 for insurance

Doesn't get better than that.

+Ron Jones may also like this channel. This guy is a little salty at times, but his knowledge of machining and machinery is amazing, and his presentation style is entertaining.

I am a bigger fan of Motorola's design aesthetic, but I have to admit that Samsung is way, way ahead of them when it comes to making the space-future happen. Look what Samsung's camera app can do!

+Trevor Register mind blown.

"The connection between gravity and mass is a little more subtle than it is usually explained. What really causes gravity, according to Einstein, is energy. If you put energy in a location, it will cause things to move towards it. Most of what you see on your bathroom scale is due to the energy holding together your protons and neutrons, not due to the mass of their constituent quarks or electrons."

Please don't apologize r.e. my math abilities. I am actually really weak at math from calculus on. Like, I understand the concept of a derivative and integral, and that's about it. I muddle through with trigonometry, and do okay with algebra. But any college-level papers are usually way, way beyond me.

In college, I got a C in calc 1, a D in calc 2, and a D in calc 3. And one of those D's was HEAVILY curved. A higher-level discrete math course that was required for CS majors was the only class in college I ever dropped to avoid an F.
