Love or hate Apple, it makes great commercials.

You never know what's over that hill or around that curve. Great ad from New Zealand.

I wish all of the people around here had to watch it. There are many curvy mountain roads and at many intersections on the county roads you can't even see more than 100 yards down the road. Some of the problem could be reduced if the state or the county would keep the trees cleared back close to intersections and some of the problem could be reduced if people just slowed down.

 

There are also a lot of walkers, joggers, and bicyclists on those roads and I worry about them every time I see one. Many are wearing ear phones and listening to music and they don't even hear a car coming. When I run or walk I don't listen to music for that very reason. My wife does and when she walks with me I have to motion to her that a car is coming and to get off of the road.

 

I do my best to not drive faster than my reaction distance for the visibility ahead but many of my friends don't. Some may not "care" (or think nothing is going to happen) but some probably never really think about it.

I always drive slower on local country roads. And give cyclists, runners, plenty of passing room, I know what it's like as a cyclist to get passed at close proximity at high speeds. I think one of the reasons I'm a better driver is that I'm an active cyclist and runner and I know this POV well. I'm generalizing, but in the city where I ride, suburban drivers are the worst at dealing with cyclists because they're not used to seeing them. They expect you to stop on a dime - hello, handbrakes?

 

Another thing is tailgaters. Going 60-75mph, only 10 feet or less distance behind, 4-5 cars stacked this way. You see a bunch of cars on the side during a traffic jam, with bumper damage because they tailgate like crazy. 

 

Self driving cars - can't wait. Forget flying cars, people can't handle their low tech cars now.

Not sure if a repost...

Perfect for a Monday morning.

@CarlSpackler haha that's great. Enjoyed both those latest links.

 


 

Bit of a change of pace, but I absolutely love Burt Lancaster in this scene from Field of Dreams:

 

 

Brilliant.

I didn't realize the Roomba was that powerful. That cat looks to be 8-10 pounds? Not counting the shark suit, ha ha. Didn't slow down the Roomba at all.

Shark cat was hilarious. Video was from 2012, how have I missed that? Guess I'm not on the internet enough ;-)

I need @Lihu to rig up something for my 76 lb. dog. He needs a new gimmick for his FB page. Yes... My dog has a Facebook page and he is more popular than I am.

The motors can do 1m/s or more in plush carpet. It's limited for safety reasons. I should ask about our new motors, but the focus is on cleaning efficiency. We want to continue to kick everyone's butt in cleaning performance even with big name competitors coming into the picture.

I never knew Tiger Woods ad libbed the tackle in this old Nike commercial. This is an outtake. They all get the funnies afterwards. So that's how he screwed up his knee! :-$
