    The Aviation Thread [Contains Lots of Awesome Pictures]

    My former boss (now retired) used to race in the F1 class. He saw too many accidents and too many close calls and decided to call it quits. He ended up buying a Pitts and taking up aerobatics as a safer alternative.

    The Funny Maths Thread.. which sometimes contains mildly amusing pictures

    According to http://www.csgnetwork.com/circumellipse.html it should be about 4.25. But, yeah, different sites seem to use different equations and result in different answers.

    I only know that because of the internet. Wasn't she some kind of meme for a minute? It's like Beiber. If the internet didn't complain about him I wouldn't know who he is.

    Random Thoughts....

    Here in St. Louis I'm annoyed that it is supposed to get up to 88? (31?C) today. Recently it has been quite pleasant with our highs around 80ish (27ish C).

    To be fair, I haven't been a big fan of their latest albums. Ride the Lightning through the Black album covers the period of their music that I like most.

    Traffic Deaths Climb By Largest Increase In Decades

    Which is why the relevant statistic is deaths per 100k vehicle miles (really passenger miles would be better, but it would be a guess at best), but that isn't as alarming as absolute numbers.

    Agreed. Zagato has a habit of making good looking cars out of gorgeous ones.

    I can't speak for all of northern Italy, but Piedmontese food definitely does not.

    Random Thoughts....

    I don't remember being that light. I probably would have been under 10 at that size. I found an old physical from when I was 13 and I was 5'10" (178cm) 160lbs (72kg) by then.

    IIRC he intended for it actually be the Model E to go with S, X and Y, but ran into trademark issues and had to change the E to 3.

    I prefer the just push harder method. The concrete block looks like it is just sitting there, and carts aren't that heavy. :P

    Random Thoughts (Political Edition)

    But if she has responded strongly to harassment in the past it may make her a less likely target. It won't prevent it from happening, but I'd have to imagine a potential harasser would more likely target someone who would stay quiet about it instead of someone who is going to fight back.

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    I don't follow approval ratings closely, but hasn't he spent most of his presidency with approval ratings in the 40s? If that qualifies as high, then that is pretty sad.

    Compared to the countries that will kill you for being gay that is pretty mild.

    The Aviation Thread [Contains Lots of Awesome Pictures]

    Back in the mid-90s I was up at Oshkosh and it was pretty windy on the day I was up there. One of the biplanes was able to fly into the wind with a negative ground speed. Seeing it was a surreal experience.
