I have found that the only real difference between 87 octane fuel and 91 octane fuel is that 87 evaporates faster when pouring it on ant hills.
Title: Re: Randomness
Post by: Sal Atticum on January 04, 2008, 09:58:17 pm
I have found that ants full of 87 octane fuel can run farther when you set them on fire than ants full of 91 octane fuel.

I have also found that my car runs poorly with only three wheels.  This may be an overlooked design flaw.

The problem with that accusation of none hilarity is that you didn't look at the perspective of the average consumer. The probability of the lack of humorosity is in fact a relative quantity of the aforementioned data.

So random... Today Somoa switched from right side driving to left side of the road driving. This was done because NZ and AU are left hand traffic so now they will be able to get cheaper vehicles and "evacuate hurricanes faster". This got me thinking and perhaps some of you that have been around to places that were left hand traffic can answer.

What happens when you go from a right hand traffic pattern to a left hand traffic pattern? Is there some sort of road structure like a passover that assists this? Or a red light or something???

I've been meaning to pay for it for close to 6 months now. Just haven't gotten around to it.

They only limit the website version to 40 hours. the windows gadget and the blackberry app doesn't apply towards the 40 hours a month. so between all those version I usually never go over.

I do wish I didn't have the adds on my phone. Sometimes I use it for pre-music at a show and one pops up about axe shower gel or free business cards and i just pretend I don't hear it while people look around all quizzical...

CitySourced is a real time mobile civic engagement tool. CitySourced provides a free, simple, and intuitive tool empowering citizens to identify civic issues (graffiti, trash, potholes, etc.) and report them to city hall for quick resolution; an opportunity for government to use technology to save money and improve accountability to those they govern; and a positive, collaborative platform for real action.

Cool idea.

Yeah, a lot of cities have been using GIS to track exactly where each problem is.  It's exciting for residents to be able to map things themselves, though.

That is a good idea.
ND should start using that website for the bigger cities like Fargo and Grand Forks to see if it's helpful and then more communities could start using it. It would hopefully help get some of the road problems fixed sooner....

I know that Grand Forks city/county has some GIS information available, but they could really add some cool stuff to things like the "report a problem" section of the city website.

All in all, if you wanted to you could build a site to do this on a point-to-point basis with Drupal, Gmaps, and the Location module.

We broke the 100,000 marker again this month and we are looking like we might set another record.  I am predicting we break 130,000!

Wow, we have already destroyed all previous records, we are already at 141,000 for the month.  This is 15,000 more than the previous record with a few more days to go.  We had 13,999 views in one day... where is everyone coming from?  Hooray!

Wow, we destroyed all previous records... we hit 162,963 page views this month on the message board.  WOW.  Tell your friends and visit CD more often so we can break this record in December! ;)

Some fun facts:

- November had more page views than our first two years combined!
- November broke our previous record by over 35,000 page views!
- The 27th and 29th both independently had more page views than our entire first year!
- We only need about 11,000 more views to hit 3 million total page views!
- I am easily impressed by the sheer numbers!  :-[

I think quite a number of them were photoshopped in some way.

Do you find that a lot of photo posts like that are the worst quality images?  It's like the same photos have been floating around since 1993.
