    Hi Monocrom,

    Not an iFan I take it. I really enjoy mine (iPad 2) especially since I bought that
    beer app. The only problem is now I have to keep it in the refrigerator.

    My best friend and his wife both have one. I consider the iPad to be mainly a very expensive toy that can do many things a notebook can do. But clearly geared for fun. If I had the extra funds, and currently wasn't into watches along with lights, I'd honestly buy one.

    I purchased a refurbished iPad 2 from the Apple website for $349. It came with a new back and a one year warranty. If I was to describe it with one word, it would be fun.

    Monocrom, I want to be careful not to derail this thread any further, but beyond being a wonderful toy you should consider that the iPad has been making enormous inroads into business and enterprise. In addition, it is becoming widely adopted in the medical profession, particularly in hospitals as a portable reference source, a record keeping, database and communications tool (including Facetime conferences) and as a way to share information and images such as X-rays and MRIs directly with patients, even in their hospital beds. And tablets can be wiped down and disinfected pretty easily compared with laptops or netbooks having keyboards. The Veterans Affairs Department has begun equipping employees with iPads and the Airforce is considering the purchase of 18,000 iPads. Obviously, the dedicated apps make a huge difference here but the touch controlled tablet form itself has been transformative whether you are a doctor making the rounds, an on site construction foreman, or a manager walking the factory floor. The term "game changer" keeps coming up in articles I've read on this subject. The iPad is WAY more than just an expensive toy.

    If people are interested in continuing discussion on this subject, perhaps a new thread is in order and we can go back to viewing videos.

    Let's let this be the final post in this thread on that subject. - Empath

    I laughed until I cried watching this. My former piano teacher met these guys, and yes he plays like this all the time.

    I thought the exact same thing. Not the best drummer ever but definitely the most entertaining.

    Another mystery of nature:

    Murmuration

    No one knows why they do it. Yet each fall, thousands of starlings dance in the twilight above England and Scotland.The birds gather in shape-shifting flocks called murmurations, having migrated in the millions from Russia and Scandinavia to escape winterís frigid bite. Scientists arenít sure how they do it, either. The starlings' murmurations are manifestations of swarm intelligence, which in different contexts is practiced by schools of fish, swarms of bees and colonies of ants.

    Another video I can watch again and again and it's still funny. Why is it people just stand there and wait for the foot being delivered by a spinning back kick?



    Lite me,

    That was truly awesome!

    I feel silly for just using the combination can / bottle-opener tool on my SAK Compact.

    If you can use a slice of Pizza to open a bottle, I wouldn't eat it! LOL

    EDIT:

    Wait a minute, they didn't use the puppy to open up that bottle. They used a pink bottle cap opener in that one scene.

    I was working the rally where the FY Racing Team filmed this .

    Why am I posting this one? Well, on the stage (that's what a segment of the rally is called) that I was working later in the day this was taken, they crashed.

    (** Some of the comments on their Facebook page are at the very least "R-rated" so be warned if you click on those **) About 2/3's of the way down the FY Racing Facebook page on the right you can see what their car looked like after it was towed out of the stage. Take a look at the two pictures of the car -- they were lucky to say the least.

    Both the driver and the co-driver were taken to the local hospital to be checked out and were released after treatment. The driver had a nasty concussion and the co-driver had only minor cuts and bruises. Both were out of the car when emergency crews arrived on scene.

    Some race and rally drivers complain about the cost and labor that building a car takes. Now you know why the cars are so tough.

    Remarkable footage of Venus transiting the Sun - from the NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center



    This event lasted approximately 6 hours and happens in pairs eight years apart, which are separated from each other by 105 or 121 years.
    The last transit was in 2004 and the next will not happen until 2117.
    The videos and images displayed here are constructed from several wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light and a portion of the visible spectrum.
    The red colored sun is the 304 angstrom ultraviolet, the golden colored sun is 171 angstrom, the magenta sun is 1700 angstrom, and the orange sun is filtered visible light.

    The footage was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory
    Launched on Feb. 11, 2010, the Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is the most advanced spacecraft ever designed to study the sun. During its five-year mission,
    it will examine the sun's atmosphere, magnetic field and also provide a better understanding of the role the sun plays in Earth's atmospheric chemistry and climate.
    SDO provides images with resolution 8 times better than high-definition television and returns more than a terabyte of data each day.

    Some cool videos I stumbled upon today on YouTube. In the first one, I never even thought the eye would do this. In the last two i think it's a scanning electron microscope used.

    Most of these clips have been shown on Tosh.0 on Comedy Central. It's still funny to watch them without commentary. Just like the Jackass movies, but no one is getting paid to be that dumb!
