She'd rather play for the Tigers, but their kit is too big for her.

This video is really cool, can't wait for Cirque's live shows to incorporate this kind of technology (if the FAA will let them)!
Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios choreographed a dance of drones and people titled Sparked. Below is a behind-the-scenes video.

Oops. You'd think the TV companies might have filters for this kind of typo...

I can remember enough school German that this appears to me to be pretty funny...
Super-long German words have always entertained me. They are supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. In this video, Barbara--who is known for her rhubarb pies-...

The Muon g-2 superconducting magnet nearing the end of its journey from Brookhaven National Laboratory to Fermilab. It's parked during the day today in the parking lot of the Costco that I drive past going to and from work, and will be moving up the interstate past our neighborhood overnight tonight.

Tom Skilling's Severe Weather Seminar starts in an hour; the auditorium is already about half-full. I think there's another G+ user a few seats behind me because the only other posting so far shows the same woman's hair in his photo...

This/last year's "Christmas" cake, which I finally finished decorating on New Year's Day. Cindy gave me a Cake Boss decorating kit for Christmas that included (amongst other things) 3 sizes of snowflake fondant cutters, which inspired the design. There is no Marzipan layer this year, we just couldn't find any in the stores, so I used a Royal Icing mix for the first layer, followed by the fondant covering.

6 Flags Great America in the rain last night, with Sandy and Julie. We lasted just under 4 hours, and had to stop at *$ for hot chocolate on the way home.

How to build a planter for growing vegetables on a deck or patio.

This photo album documents the construction of my second planter, with instructions in the captions.

This looks like a really interesting game if you have young kids (or grand-kids) and want them to get an intro to programming without using a computer. This game may never be available anywhere else again, i think you only have a few days to jump in...
Robot Turtles is a board game you play with your favorite 3-8 year old. It sneakily teaches programming fundamentals.

Half-time at Tom Skilling's Severe Weather Seminar after about 3 hours and 4 speakers - Dr. Uccellini on Superstorm Sandy, Dr. Schneider from the Storm Prediction Center, and Dr. Wuebbles on Severe Weather due to Climate Change, with Tom putting in a few things and a longer talk and highlights of his field trips since joining WGN. Coming up Ed Fenelon, Jim Allsopp and Brian Smith.

No, but we have a better one already, so we don't bother to enter — we'd rather not be woken up at 3am for every Amber alert or because there's a river 3 counties over which is about to overflow its banks!  If you don't have a weather radio though you should think about getting one, you shouldn't rely on being able to hear your town's tornado siren...
