Friday is for lovers, and goofy news stories

So I had basically all day to sit around and figure out a great post for the blog, but what did I do?  Yes, that's is right, I watched the sub-par season premiere of Syfy's Sanctuary and listened to a most interesting talk given by Dr. Andreas Polycarpou. (Also, I need to write down somewhere that this show is somehow getting worse...)  So all I have for you today, is a random selection of articles that will hopefully interest some of you!

I'm not sure how good my french lip reading is, but I am fairly certain I wouldn't say it in front of Granny...but I might after the jump!


So as a follow up to yesterday's post, the French Senate passed that I love Riots bill.  I hope everything works out and I am sure it was a necessary step, but this sure came at a large current economic and social cost.

So the first new thing I'd like to bring up is this cool project that I had no idea that they were even working on out in AZ/NV.  Basically what they have done is build a pretty nice bridge right out in front of the Hoover Dam.  I am pretty sure this is old news to some of you because I am assuming this wasn't shipped overnight and dropped into place.  However, this is a pretty cool addition to a location with a great engineering history!  O yeah, and if you want to read more simply check out the article!

 The next thing I'll be bring to your attention is a wonderful story out of the area around the Isle of Skye.  Basically what happened is the Royal Navy decided that their ridiculously expensive, ridiculously stealthy, and ridiculously WATER BASED nuclear submarine wanted to go for a stroll
Now you might be wondering, since when have £1Bn submarines capable of eliminating civilizations also given you the sweet deal of being able to go for a walk? Turns out that they haven't yet.  Fortunately, the craft doesn't appear to have any long term issues. And should be free and done with bothering the locals soon.


The rest are pretty much going to be links as I have some Dogfish Head brews to drink.  I hope everyone has a good weekend and who knows?  Maybe I'll even get another post up.


We can now make sytrofoam like insulating materials out of milk and clay.


Dolphins have culture, arguably more than me.

and in our weird tech piece of the day, the Japanese have brought yet another wonderful progression to all of mankind!  The live crab vending machine... 

And with that post done, I hope everyone can keep the moment positive!
