I have a feeling NASCAR could be rethinking its calendar. I've seen posts by NASCAR on FB asking fans what they thought of having a road course race as part of the Chase for the Championship, and from what I saw, many commentators were opposed to going to the some of the same tracks twice a year (Daytona, Bristol,… » 9/27/14 1:09pm Saturday 1:09pm

Yeah, SURE, they're "helping the public." Helping the public how? By drawing them away from "NO HASSLE DEALERS" to their own dealers who then try to convince the public to buy a optioned-out car they don't really want?

And pretty much all Tesla Stores offer test drives and nobody bats an eye (it's only the Tesla… » 9/26/14 9:40pm Friday 9:40pm

No matter whether yu have Harry Potter's Invisibility Blanket or you somehow because transparent enough that light passes through you, the simple fact of the matter is, if light can pass through you, it can EASILY go straight through your eyes and your brain wouldn't notice it. The retina has to capture the light rays… » 9/26/14 6:32pm Friday 6:32pm

What about radium? Used to be used to make the glowing hands of wristwatches. However, the hands of the watches were HAND-PAINTED in the early days of the portable clock with hands. In the 1920s, a group of painters fell deathly sick after years of licking the paintbrushes in order to keep the "paint" moist. Perhaps… » 9/26/14 4:17pm Friday 4:17pm

I'm pretty sure this is already known, but there are screws that tighten anti-clockwise (me being a European again, I love those weird across-the-ponders), including usage in turnbuckles and others. Some manufacturers who prefer security sometimes make their screws tighten anticlockwise, so if someone were to try and… » 9/26/14 3:49pm Friday 3:49pm

Wasn't it just last year or two that Airlines REFUSED to even consider adding WiFi? I know when I flew to Salt Lake City in September 2012, I was instructed to turn off my gadgets even though I insisted to her that my device's wireless antennas were in airplane mode. » 9/24/14 8:51pm 9/24/14 8:51pm

I'm in awe of how awesome this looks. I've been thinking of doing a lego build myself, but not sure how it's done. Do I just buy pieces and build and order more as I need them, or pre-plan in Microsoft Excel? lol. Rhetorical post, but love the lamp. » 9/24/14 12:16am 9/24/14 12:16am

Of course, you forgot some tests... Sharpness, image quality and macro stuff. I realize that many of these tests can be changed with image-editing software, but for Macros, I would test how close the phone's Macro mode can focus the camera. Unfortunately, my iPhone 5c doesn't have such a mode, meaning my camera cannot… » 9/23/14 3:20pm 9/23/14 3:20pm
