The Beaver Ballad Songs about machines seldom make the top 40. This one makes up for not being top-of-the-chart material by listing a bunch of airplanes made by DeHavilland named after animals. Note this is the Canadian offshoot of

Elon Musk, SpaceX and the BFR have got me really pumped about space. I'm thinking we might have people on the moon within ten years or so. Yes, I know, all the jibber-jabber seems to be directed at Mars, but while Mars is a lofty goal, there is so much we could do with the Moon and the Moon is right here, just two or three

Binocular vision allows us to judge distance to objects that are nearby to us, I would say things that are up to ten feet away. After that, the difference in the angle of our eyes gets pretty small which would make it very hard to tell the difference.The F-35 has a fancy system that allows the pilot to see in an

Service Calls

The O-man came by today. He wanted to get the oil changed in his car. I advised him to call Eric Heaton and schedule an appointment. I suspect that he drove out here to visit Eric's in person because he is like me, he likes to deal with people face to face. And he might have been able to get the oil changed on

CT at max speed I had a CT scan done once. From the shape of the machine and from the noise it makes, I deduced that the innards must be rotating around the hole in the center. It's nice to have some confirmation. The medical profession is a lot like NASA. All their technical explanations are de

Self-storage lockers are the fastest growing business in the USA, at least according to the Internet. I can believe it. While we raising our kids we were in heavy accumulation mode. You need stuff, so you buy it. But when you're done with it, if it hasn't been destroyed, you save it. I mean you paid good money for it, and m

I just stopped in the TV room to see that my wife was watching American Idol. They were just introducing a choir from Los Angeles so I stayed to watch.
