Have you guys seen the Red Bull Stratos project? They're having a guy jump out of a capsule from like 120,000 feet. Should be happening soon presumably. They say he'll break the speed of sound until he hits lower atmosphere. He'll also be breaking all previous records.
And he's going to be jacked up on red bull?

Interesting: http://www.redbullstratos.com/

Biiiiiiiiill Cosby NEEDS... to speak... a liiiiiiiiitle... faster... ... ... BECAUSE, HIS, AUDIENCE, only has... ... ... so much... ... ... patience.

He was on Meet the Press this morning. Listening to him talk after rapid-speak Geithner is like hitting the brakes and putting the car in reverse.
Nah, everybody else needs to slow down and be more patient.

The Coz is the man.

5 PM, finally! Hopefully now the phone will stop ringing and I can get some real work done. It has been craaaaaaaaaazy busy!!! For a time I was feeling that "my head is about to explode" feeling. But that was partly due to a mystery that has been resolved. What the customer was telling me just wasn't possible...at least it was very hard to imagine a reasonable explanation. Eventually the mystery fact came to light and the world made sense again. For a time they really had me going.

It will be interesting to see what else he breaks (arms, neck, legs, etc).

Not so random thought.... Do threads get missed on PF simply because there are so many visitors/posts and it is so busy? My threads are dying quicker than a carnival goldfish. A bit frustrating... Is there an optimal time to post so that people will see them pop up?

I don't know, but I almost had a freaking heart attack researching it:

it seems they believe that people who have 3 arms or at least 3 hands shop at walmart.

i would have gone with 2 hands and 1 foot.

Seems legit to me. Three armed people are notorious for sneaking too many items through the express line.

So the London Olymipics has a motto. It's "Inspire a generation".

I wonder how many person hours it took for a committee to come up with something as feeble as that?

I was looking for a tiramisu recipe that used real espresso (we have a machine here), and I think I found it...

Note 1: Don't use American coffee in place of espresso. If you do use coffee, don't call the result tiramisu, because it is not, and don't tell anybody where you got the recipe. Don't use 'espresso blend' coffee of any type. It is not Italian espresso. Use an Italian brand such as Cello, Lavazza, Kimbo, Mauro, Illy, etc. You should be able to find it at an Italian market. It will either be packaged in a 250gr. (8 oz) foil brick or an 8oz can. If you are in the USA it will be expensive. You don't have to use the most expensive brand, but make sure it is Italian. Starbucks doesn't make any coffee that is even remotely close to Italian espresso. Don't bother trying to use it.

Another note: We use Savoiardi lady fingers. Other types may absorb the espresso at a different rate and change quantity of espresso, and hence the flavor of the tiramisu.


I mean, there's an optimal lady fingers/espresso absorption rate! yeahhh this is my recipe...

Glad I ditched TV channels for Sirius. BB King's Bluesville has a nice selection.

It's probably exaggerated to make a point: I guess people say "I have 18 items, that's close to 15". Then people start taking 20, then 22, who know where it will end...

And the logo. Why not something quintessentially British. Like fancy Calligraphy, or something... The current logo doesn't really say 'London', its just generic.
