So have to ask the required questions - what's your beard like? I grow a fairly heavy beard (if I shave in the morning and have a date at night, I typically shave a second time) and have yet to find an electric that can do a decent job of it...and I've tried everything from cheapies to the more expensive models but… » 8/01/14 10:27am Today 10:27am

Excellent article. Another point about Kendall, and one that was brought up in several articles, is that what she does can hardly be defined as "hunting". She's lead to where *insert animal here* is sleeping, walks up next to it, and shoots it. That's hunting in the same way that going to the supermarket and buying… » 8/01/14 8:49am Today 8:49am

You have kinda missed the entire point. Is wealth = intelligence? No...however having a substantial amount of wealth DOES tend to open up better opportunities whether it's going to a better school, or living in an area with better public schools (read as: higher real estate taxes), etc etc and so on...and whether… » 7/29/14 5:37pm Tuesday 5:37pm

Unfortunately that's how it goes. The good news is that the major carriers tend to split up exciting exclusivity pretty evently (M8 Win to verizon, Nexus to AT&T etc etc and so on). Unfortunately, yes, that means you sometimes end up unable to get *insert new superphone name here* - the good news is that there's… » 7/29/14 8:50am Tuesday 8:50am

I'm curious to see what the shifting will be like - I drove a T-rex down in Florida last year: similar concept. Shifting was a 1-up, 4 down pattern very similar to a motorcycle. Hell of a lot of fun, but not something someone who is familiar with a stick shift would handle unless they're also very familiar with… » 7/28/14 2:27pm Monday 2:27pm

Have to disagree on the shocktop front - while not a big fan of their normal brews, they do make some decent seasonal beers that are at least interesting (their chocolate wheat is something different for sure, and goes down nice when there's snow and ice and cold going on). It has macrobrew backing, but I don't find… » 7/28/14 11:28am Monday 11:28am

Nothing has killed off more clownfish in recent years than the movie "Finding Nemo". The mad rush of people going out to setup aquariums for clownfish without a full understanding of what they were doing was insane (as a hobbyist I have a very close relationship with my local shop, and was grateful to see him saying… » 7/23/14 10:54pm 7/23/14 10:54pm

Amazing shot - I've had the pleasure of diving with a couple of large rays like those (though I believe at least one of those was a manta) and they are truly impressive to see. While completely harmless, it's easy to forget that when you see one up close because they are so large and alien looking - even more so, I'd… » 7/23/14 9:53pm 7/23/14 9:53pm

I dunno - I mean for the game a smaller wall works fine - and as a teaching tool it would work ok too: the idea is to give someone the tools to be able to figure out how best to climb: what paths to look for, what grips are most effective etc. Don't necessarily need to spoon feed someone once they're onto a larger… » 7/23/14 2:16pm 7/23/14 2:16pm

Honestly, I'm more interested in an electrochromatic face shield - I admittedly wear a 3/4 helmet, but I'd find that of far more use than a HUD. I'll reserve judgement until after I try it but, generally speaking, the less crap I have going in front of my eyes, the better. I have a GPS on my bars, that I only… » 7/22/14 6:06pm 7/22/14 6:06pm

I agree 100% - for laptops you really can't do better than the thinkpad lineup right now. I use them at work and at home as well (t430, w520, and a first gen x1). Great, solid machines, decent customer service, and CONSTANTLY on huge sales. » 7/22/14 12:01pm 7/22/14 12:01pm
