Required by law to re-blog this.
Well shitballs. I knew I was doing something wrong. Clearly I have no idea of what I’m doing in this game.
This happens to me on a very regular basis, at least once a day, but I thought it would be funny to put at least one example up here. The best part is the T-150 is a pretty good tank if you don’t drive it like a muppet. It has 90mm front and side armor which is pretty thick but not hugely so, but if you tack like a boat you can increase the effective armor to 127mm by angling it at 45º which gives pretty much everyone trouble penetrating it.
This guy just drove straight at the enemy like a muppet and calls ME the noob. 3 of those kills were taking out people doing damage to him in a bid to keep him alive. Some people are so ungrateful.
Strangely enough, he actually has a LOT of games under his belt, so he should know better.
Amazon Prime Air is a delivery system Amazon Inc. plans to implement into their service by the year 2015. Small packages purchased through Amazon.com will be shipped to the buyer via air drone in as little as 30 minutes.
Cool flying barbecue?
This must be like what having a Hunger Games sponsor feels like.
What if you have birds of prey in the area? Imagine if an eagle or a hawk snaffled your package while it was en route? Will birds of prey go for small UAVs?
Screw birds of prey. If they do this the first thing I plan to buy is a net gun. From Amazon.com if they sell them.
EDIT: well, would you look at that.
paigeannie asked: Hi. I love xc racing but I am not reckless enough descending (even though I am pretty fast). But I am quite good at road racing I just don't enjoy it as much. What sort of biking would you suggest and do you think it's worth trying different types like cyclocross or track?
I’m going to have to throw this open to our followers who I know will have some good suggestions!
My bike riding is just me pootling around, which is dandy for me, but doesn’t leave me with any great advice to offer. I know for certain that we have followers who have dabbled in various disciplines with varying degrees of seriousness, so hopefully we will get some good responses.
I’ve ridden heaps of different bikes and to be honest, trying lots of different bikes teaches you how to handle different bikes, but also that those skills cross over in to other disciplines. You’ll probably end up loving one more than the other, but it’s worth trying them all.
- Urban/Hybrid: what makes it a hybrid, and why they’re so cheap.
- Recumbent: The advantages of aerodynamics, especially on a downhill; the use of different muscles, and the correct technique to take off from a standstill. Most people push off the ground. You should push on the pedals and lift your foot directly up, rather than push off the ground.
- MTB (full suspension and XC): severe off road handling and the different ways suspension can factor in to ride quality.
- BMX: Fun fun fun and sturdy little bikes, a cheap way to learn some of the fine motor skill tricks that come in handy (e.g. low speed balance).
- Fixie: Learning how to trackstand just by doing it every day at traffic lights. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks. What 210 rpm feels like down a hill. Learning to be very smooth with pedal stroke. For me it was also an introduction in to how componentry can matter, because the efficiency increase was noticeable from my previous bike.
- Track: How to ride in a damn straight line at high speed and not worry about hitting anything else. Also, what 180 RPM on flat ground is like.
- Road bike: How to handle really high speed on a bicycle. As in, 45-55 mph. Also, the importance of effective design, material flexibility, frame rigidity and the problems introduced by decreasing weight.
- CX: Half way between XC and road, and my gateway drug in to racing. I haven’t ridden my CX bike in a while but I definitely love the SSCX.
I’m probably forgetting one but that’s what comes to mind. Try all the things, because you just never know when it may be useful.
I was wondering what those two flies were doing in the urinal.
This is one of those strange, “why the fuck would you know that” things, but there’s actually a pretty long, well thought out reason for having a fly on a urinal bowl.
Research was done to determine fly vs. no fly bowls, and it ends up the bowls with a fly had a far greater probability to have less splash back than no-fly bowls, because the fly is positioned at the point that is typically going to result in the smallest amount of splashback. By doing this, maintenance costs go down and cleanliness goes up - a win-win for anyone with public facing restrooms. The other thing is it pulls from a deep seated instinct to aim at a target, so people have a tendency to do this even without any instruction, and even while inebriated have a greater tendency to aim for the fly.
I can’t remember where I first saw these - I think it was a pub somewhere - but the idea is not new, nor is it always a fly. In some European countries it’s a bee. Nowadays it’s classified as a training aid, but to me it will always be an interesting example of effective design understanding the user scenario: without any training or instruction, most people understand what the desired behavior is. All user interface design should be the same way - if the user can just sit down, use it and not need any instruction, we’re doing our job right.
Magnetic putty engulfs piece of metal.
I’ve since learned that this is not actually magnetic putty, but a ferromagnetic putty and a rare earth magnet, which makes a lot more sense. It’s also been sped up a huge amount; the actual “consumption” took more than 1.5 hours.
I have no interest in creating the armor but that is incredibly impressive work. Some people have more artistic talent in their little finger than I have in my entire body.
Do you also want to create ALL THE ARMOR? I’ve released a book!
5$ and I’ll teach you everything you need to know! :)
BUYING THIS FOR MY FRIEND RIGHT NOW BRB.
This is the lovely lady who’s tutorials I followed when making my Wonder Woman armor set! My set is SUPER simple compared to what she does, she’s a fucking wizard. I can’t wait to do a cosplay that complex. Check out her website for tons of tips, progress shots, and tutorials!
Um dia eu ainda faço isso
first time reblogging one of these because it’s done properly. With a mountain bike.

This graphic is fabulous. It represents a tiny crash course in rhetoric. Learn these things. Put them on your wall. Whisper them into the breeze. These are THINGS TO KNOW.
