Hey car guys, this is about the resurrection of the car with the biggest engine ever.  It's a crazy car and the video is one for the garage & car lover.

I'm wondering if a usbdrive with digital images would last 100 years in the Antarctic too.

Younguns went in with the old biddies.

The new arrivals kept their distance, and there were no fights. +Kolu Roth helped me chase the little ones into the enclosure when it got dusky outside. Otherwise I think they would have stayed out in the chicken yard all night.

"In a 2010 panel on crowdsourcing, Lukas Biewald, CEO of MTurk competitor CrowdFlower, highlighted this aspect of the platform’s relationship to workers, reframing it as an attractive feature for employers: “With technology you can find them, pay them the tiny amount of money, and then get rid of them when you don’t need them anymore,” he said."

"Consider the cost of scientific periodicals, most of which are published exclusively online. It has increased at four times the rate of inflation since 1986. The average price of a year’s subscription to a chemistry journal is now $4,044. In 1970 it was $33. A subscription to the Journal of Comparative Neurology cost $30,860 in 2012—the equivalent of six hundred monographs. Three giant publishers—Reed Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell, and Springer—publish 42 percent of all academic articles, and they make giant profits from them. In 2013 Elsevier turned a 39 percent profit on an income of £2.1 billion from its science, technical, and medical journals.

All over the country research libraries are canceling subscriptions to academic journals, because they are caught between decreasing budgets and increasing costs. The logic of the bottom line is inescapable, but there is a higher logic that deserves consideration—namely, that the public should have access to knowledge produced with public funds."

"Charles Dickens wrote while blindfolded. Virginia Woolf took three baths a day, and always with ice-cold water. Stephen King eats a blood orange at every meal whenever he is working on a book. Joyce Carol Oates writes only in Comic Sans."
