Bad Design can kill

Bad design and weak communication can have profound consequences. Shows the situational awareness needed for a job designing more impactful products.

(if only the exiting gate was not at that angle, i wonder if the designer of the runway had misgivings)

So far it's true

So last winter was really cold (2009) and last summer was cool (2009). My theory about cold times during recession is still holding. It's nearly a 1 to 1 correspondence: reduced factory output = less pollution = less global warming. Very simple. Yet some doubt; dunno?

Summer 2010 : so far it's a scorcher (or a bit hotter than summer of 2009).

Why 7 days

So why is breaking up a month (lunar cycle) better 7/4 than 10/3 or 3/10 or 6/5. I would figure 5 weeks of 6 days is best for the proportional understanding/memory capacity of humans. So 7 proably happened by the flow of events thru history, not things like human cycles.

It's the friday before July 4 and twitter & fb are overloaded so I'm using this...

I got this offer in fandango for half-price tixx. My add made me buy senior citizen movie tickets. I hope they take it, it's all the same price. Or get fake ids.
