Glorious Win...

Let's start this off with a amazing win by a father who has stepped up to the plate. This is perfect in every way.
I want to meet those folks saying this is abuse. Seriously? Abuse? How?

Snow Patterns

Quote
Artist Simon Beck must really love the cold weather! Along the frozen lakes of Savoie, France, he spends days plodding through the snow in raquettes (snowshoes), creating these sensational patterns of snow art. Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of three soccer fields! The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns and shapes that create stunning, sometimes 3D, designs when viewed from higher levels.

How long these magnificent geometric forms survive is completely dependent on the weather. Beck designs and redesigns the patterns as new snow falls, sometimes unable to finish a piece due to significant overnight accumulations. Interestingly enough, he said, 'The main reason for making them was because I can no longer run properly due to problems with my feet, so plodding about on level snow is the least painful way of getting exercise. Gradually, the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera. Spectacular art for the sake of exercise

That looks AWESOME! Personally, I would cut out the patterns and shove them into my refrigerator to preserve them.

And why am I just now seeing this thread?

48 Philadelphia transit workers hit $172.7 million jackpot

Today seems to have to have some good upbeat stories. This is one of 'em. The commentors tend to lean towards goodness that a whole slew of folks are much better off today, than just one.

I love this persons comment...

Sometimes the video is available like The Expendables you posted. But this new one is not.

The Dog video plays fine for me here. Sometimes those that are hosting videos will choose to lock it so that the only place you can watch their video is directly on their page. But the Dog video doesn't have embedding disabled. So, not sure where the hiccup is.

ah, it depends on the hardware. Here on the PC this one is working. Not on the iPad does it fare so well.

Then other video's you posted just have the link to open it up on the youtube site.

Man "Sees" With 'Bionic Eye'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vO6BMkWhDDc


Never in a million years did I ever think while watching The Six Million Dollar Man as a kid did I think we would be on the verge of achieving something as glorious as a Bionic Eye. Wow. It's still in the preliminary stages, but it's only a matter of time.
