Mount Taranaki, on the North Island of New Zealand, is a large-scale circle that's visible from space: a stratovolcano with six miles of forest around it. But that didn't happen naturally. Oh, and there's a good chance that, in the next fifty years or so, it might explode.

High-frequency traders have a few tactics on stock exchanges: but simply put, they gather price information faster than anyone else, sometimes even faster than the markets themselves, and use that to make a tiny profit many, many, many times.

Back in the 1920s, wingwalking claimed lives. Daredevils would move around on the top of a plane's wings, in mid-flight, often without any harness or any safety line. Maybe they'd be able to clip onto something during takeoff and landing, but maybe not. There are still a few of those true daredevil wingwalkers out there in the world, but in the 21st century... it's usually a bit different.

The US-Canada Border Splits This Road Down The Middle
Ári síðan
Rue Canusa (or Canusa Avenue) is a street that's split in two by a border: the northern part is in Stanstead, Canada, and the southern part is in Derby Line, USA - and border crossings here aren't as easy as they used to be.

This is the thing I absolutely love about the old NFS games. They had such a variety of culture in the tracks that made you want to go to that place and just explore and admire it wholeheartedly. New games simply don't, and never will, have that feeling. Thanks for this video.

(3:45) If I'm not mistaken. All traffic that goes across the Swedish border is logged. So if you as a Swede, uses a foregin VPN, all your traffic is still logged. If you use a VPN in Sweden as a Swede, the VPN traffic is logged, but you don't get the benefit of connecting from a foregin country.

Wouldn't it be about 30 quintillion, rather than 74 quintillion? Correct me if I'm wrong, but if there are 64 possible characters and 11 are being used, surely you would use a permutation function (because order matters) and calculate 64P11, which is roughly 30 quintillion?

It's called chromakey, and was typically used with a blue screen. Analog chromakey was excellent and could be tweaked in real time. When the digital method took over it was impossibly slow to render for lack of fast enough computer processors, but studios had already trashed their analog gear, leaving many directors, producers and editors frustrated and furious with the inferior and impractical new digital filters.

"We" could always add a new word to the English language to differentiate "we" from "we". Although given that people don't know "ask" from "axe" or "your" from "you're", I think we've reached the limits of what humans are capable of remembering and using from a language perspective. :)

I think it gives us an insight on our crave for availability. We wanna see animals? We go to the zoo. We want some information? We google it. We want emotions? We watch a movie. But this art takes us back to the point - which was not long ago! - when things weren't available at arbitrary times. And this non-availability makes it so uncomfortable to us. We can not get control over it. We can not predict it. It is raw and wild and we must accept this as its nature.

Tbh the only change I could see going forward would be the elimination of the letter "q". Mainly because there are no sounds that could be made with a q that couldn't be made with other letters, just a few examples: "kween", "kwebec" "kwothe" "kwizical".

i work as a shift supervisor in a dining hall on my university campus. a large number of our low level employees are foreign students and many of the cooks and my managers are older than me. this is a problem i run into frequently. for example, i had for a long time said "yep" in response to "thank you". in my head and to my native english speaking peers, this filled the same conversational necessity as "you're welcome" but conveyed a tone of "no problem, of course i could help, don't mention it". i wasn't even aware of this until i began to get strange looks from older and foreign coworkers. i shifted to saying "of course" which seems to convey the same thing and be more universally understood. its funny how you don't think about it until it causes miscommunication. there's lots of things i say that i hadn't evaluated until it caused problems at work
