Rick Monday Saves the Flag

The kids went to a Dodger game last night.
They got Rick Monday's Autograph.
Here is a Video showing a great thing that he did 31 years ago.

Full Moon

I was Checking out the Full moon tonight.
I found this site with a link to a Map that shows where probes have landed.

Google Earth [Recycled]

Now you can press Ctrl-Alt-A and you get a Google Flight simulator.
You can choose between an F16 or a Cirrrus SR22.

Google Earth is a very cool application that you have to download.
But once you do, it is bound to keep you busy for hours.
The Colorado River View is Great!

Bend in the River

One of my favorite rides in Disneyland is Pirates of the Caribbean.
Partially because the wait time is often shorter than the ride itself.
Also, I find it amazing how the designers made the ride go out under the berm and back without giving away any of the illusion while you are on the ride.
Bend in the River has a nice CG rendering of New Orleans Square.
BTW September 19 is... International Talk Like A Pirate Day


I knew that there was once a knock off of Disneyland in Japan called Nara Dreamland.
What I didn't know is that there is a Dreamworld Gold Coast Down under.
Again it looks like a poor copy of the original.
Well they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

European Plates

Why does the global community allow this?
The Automobile license plates that they use in Europe are Huge!
That's 23% larger than good old American plates. That's 23% larger PER vehicle.
I mean it's their business if they want to use those huge plates, but what about the children?
We should boycott, unless that is, if the European Union been buying License plate Offsets.

Gotta love this show.
It is a very original show.
He has competition now.
Man Vs Wild.
I think that Les Stroud's version is way more authentic, and much easier to watch.
The Boys are also hooked.
