One of the most obnoxious things in sports is Ohio State fans that correct you when you say Ohio State that “it’s THE Ohio State”. I don’t mind it when people do it with a self aware smirk knowing it’s annoying that’s fine, but there are a number of people I know who do it that are completely genuine. Made me irrationally happy thinking of those people offended when Dayton beat OSU in the NCAA tournament and the Dayton Daily News had the front page headline “THE University of Dayton”.. Fact that he gave me the shoes is not really what is meaningful about it,Read More →

I suspect if the tesla has 600 hp of acceleration, it might be limited by the systems that take it out of the battery. If that were the case, maybe you could get >600hp of braking if you could do something with the electricity out, like dumping what the batteries can take into a resistor bank. Diesel electric trains use resistor banks to brake coming down mountains..

Thompson, who grown up in a rural Oklahoma town of about 3,000 people, had wanted to be in the Corps since third grade, when a math teacher described fighting for the Allies on D Day. Thompson enlisted at 17 and served for four years before leaving to start a family, join the Marine Reserve and go to college. He reentered the service as an officer in May 2001, just months before the twin towers collapsed and the Pentagon burned. Not the most hated, but definitely the most perplexed.

We are indeed faced with a very alarming scenario. We need to be involved in facing these challenges and work for solutions. After all, whatever we do on the earth must be done with the consciousness that it will affect seven generations after us. Spektor does a nice job of skewering both selfish believers and crazed extremists who advocate hatred in the name of some divine force. “God can be funny” she sings, “When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way/And when presented like a genie / Who does magic like Houdini/Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus.”Read More →

Fat covers the muscles. It is stored energy. You can get your body to convert it back into energy but it does not turn into muscle. All of these images are part of the Italian tradition, to be sure, but Italy is a large country with an incredibly long and storied history. Their traditions are more varied and fascinating than most non Italians imagine. Italians from Sicily, Campania and Veneto have traditions that can vary widely from each other, and Italian families celebrate traditions that run much deeper than the clichs you see in mobster movies and chain restaurants. To your average Korean Army commander,Read More →

For the first year I did not worry too much about how to make money. I had some money in savings that I knew we could live on for at least the first year. That first year we mostly relaxed and spent a lot of time traveling and exploring the country. They sell for under $20. Stick with a solid if you’re wearing a gingham shirt;or, for your OCBD/chambray shirt, a subtle pattern like this,this or this. Once you have your outfit together, head to Zara Men for a blazer in a neutral tone. The Messenian’s farmed for the Spartans while the Spartans sat backRead More →

My Life Would Suck Without You, the latest (and greatest) single from American Idol OG Kelly Clarkson, was leaked to the interwebs today perfectly timed to coincide with the premiere of the karaoke competition show’s 8th season.I should preface my initial assessment by confessing that Clarkson has long been one of my great pop pleasures and not even a guilty one. I maintain that the Season One victor remains the best all round artist American Idol’s ever seen (or heard); she’s released a handful of downright perfect singles that stand as exemplars of the greatRead More →
