Basically the coke vs pepsi of the navigation world (but at least this one is done by some independent evaluators).

Google Maps, Apple Maps or Nokia HERE? Which is the best navigation app for your smartphone? Google Maps is the most popular smartphone navigation...

Sean channeling his inner Von-Braun, or how I discovered that rocket engines aren't available via Amazon-Prime :)

our local hobby shop does to, but only in 3 packs... I was trying to make it a slightly cheaper hobby by buying in bulk.

Joys of math... this one is about as counterintuitive a result as I've ever seen. It's short, and doesn't require any more math background than being able to do simple integer addition/subtraction and some really basic algebra.

Granted, they are playing fast and loose, but "evaluating" any infinite series (especially those that aren't absolutely convergent) requires some artifice. But mathematics is full of artifices -- it's just that some are much more familiar than others (e.g., complex numbers, or even negative numbers).

The mathematically-educated tend to fetishize mathematical rigor, especially as they learned it (e.g., epsilon-delta arguments). This is not only extremely ahistorical but also leads to a banal view of mathematics (and I'd say that undergraduate mathematics is nearly entirely banal). When presented with some curious but dubious claims, the response should be "what's going on?" not "this is bullshit".

Gingerbread village at the Sheraton in Seattle.

Seems ironic to have this much sugar in a fundraiser for diabetes research, but at least the money is going to a good cause.

Nice day at Stevens Pass. Tough to complain about powder (even if it's heavy).

I think they had Broncos cupcakes today, if my G+ feed is to be believed. TBH nobody in Boulder seems to care too much about football, but Denver is a different story.

We took our special needs 9 year old on this tour and had a fantastic time. They treated her like royalty and were very comfortable helping her every step of the way. There are 14 lines on the tour, the longest one being 400+ meters and > 100 meters up. The restaurant at the end charges tourist prices, but it is a tourist location which is fine. As far as the pictures go at the end of the tour, they show you exactly what you are going to get for your money and didn't pressure us to buy at all. We had been very worried about taking our daughter and one of their agents contacted us afterwards just to make sure that she had had a great time.

Great Santa. Kids love it. Starts at north bend station so don't try and board in Snoqualmie.

Service was extremely slow before, during and after the meal. My chicken chili was cold when it arrived. Portions are pretty big and aside from my chili the food was pretty good. Somebody needs to spellcheck their menus ;-) We didn't go for breakfast which I understand is their "big" meal. Kids menu is the standard Mac & cheese, chicken fingers, pb & j fare.
