    skiing/snowboarding

    Still just a snowboarder. He just unstrapped one foot to do the trick. I don't much care for one-footed tricks. Most of them just end up looking awkward instead of stylish. They're generally harder than they look though.

    skiing/snowboarding

    So you're the one who is always snaking me! I kid. I do usually stop just to make sure no one else is dropping though. Unless the group of kids are idiots and all sitting way too close to have enough speed. edit: That is what I like about riding alone though. I can just flow from one feature...

    Renting a manual car

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I have no doubt I'll be able to pick it up relatively quickly. My thought behind renting a car was to get a fair amount of time to get used to it. Also I wanted to drive it back and forth on my daily commute to get an idea of what it would be like as I routinely...

    skiing/snowboarding

    When I was little I learned to ski then decided to give snowboarding a shot because I wanted to learn how to hit jumps and rails. This was at a time before twin-tip skis were readily available. First time out I broke my wrist. Five or so years later and I still love snowboarding. In the world...

    Renting a manual car

    Where did you find that out? I've looked at the online listings for a number of Hertz locations by me and everything I've seen is automatic including the corollas. I haven't seen a Yaris listed though.

    Renting a manual car

    After searching around it seems that there aren't any companies in the US that rent manual transmissions cars. Orbitz has an option to search for manuals but it never returns any results by me. I'm tempted to make my next car a manual but I've only had limited experience with them and no longer...

    [14x06] December 27th, 2009 [South America Special]

    Brilliant episode. Out of all the obstacles they've faced in this special and others I am a bit surprised altitude sickness is what forced them to turn around. Although I do know around 10,000ft or so is where people can start to get euphoric and a little loopy. Agreed. Understandably it can...

    Getting a degree in something I don't like.

    For a lot of careers it is becoming more and more true that you do need a degree beyond college. There are some exceptions though. I think salesmen and sales managers is one area where experience is generally viewed as more important. I work in a chemistry lab though and the CEO has told me he...

    Getting a degree in something I don't like.

    This is true to an extent. There are a lot of people that have careers in areas unrelated to what they majored in. However, there are a number of fields where you do need to have the right education. Sciences, engineering and medical doctors are a few examples. Even then there are ways to get...

    Getting a degree in something I don't like.

    I don't have any good advice for you. All I know is I'm a couple years further down the line of the sample problem. Graduated with a degree I only majored in because it came easy to me but didn't care about. That got me a job I didn't want and I have to go back to grad school if I'm going to...

    UK Cops hate Honda Drivers, find excuse to blow one up in London

    That was just one car google's camera happened to catch. Do you really think no one has ever parked illegally close to the white house or any other important building in the US? As far as I'm aware police in the US have never blown up a car suspected of being a car bomb just because it was...

    White house crashers

    The civil suits are not related to the incident of them crashing the party.

    UK Cops hate Honda Drivers, find excuse to blow one up in London

    Interesting I never knew that. I did not realize London was this cautious. I'm still surprised that blow up the car is the first option though. Out of curiosity I wonder if things would have happened any differently if the guy hadn't ran away from his car.

    Global warming a scam? Hacked Hadley data might suggest so.

    The bias in the 'Who Killed the Electric Car' film wasn't lost on me. I've heard the reasons for why they refused to sell the car before. I understand that from GM's cost/benefit point of view it just wasn't worth the risk. Still makes me wonder though how so much research and development went...

    Global warming a scam? Hacked Hadley data might suggest so.

    Agreed. In general I support those things but that doesn't mean I'll support any and every law because the gov claims it will help the environment. I do think the government has to get involved to some extent though. When it comes to setting pollution limits, waste and recycling programs they...
