  1. So what is the origin of the BillVon-is-a-duck meme? IIRC it predated my joining Dizzy, but I've never heard the backstory.
  2. In wild encounter, woman bites testicles of Tiger Truck Stop camel to escape, officials say https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/article_e046c5fc-dd5c-11e9-ba1e-8fc42923739b.html
  3. Ugh! When I was ~20 I bought an HD, then 2 of my buddies also bought HDs. One night one of them was riding on an interstate with another guy he knew, when he felt heat on his legs. He looked down to see flames coming off the engine and around his legs. He hopped up onto the seat on his knees, then while kneeling, used the front brake to slow down while steering toward the median. While still rolling, he bailed off into the median while the bike did a reenactment of the final scene of "Easy Rider".

  8. Interesting story of a Cirrus suffering engine failure, followed by deployment of BRS, then "landing" in the wilds of Canada, followed by an air rescue. If you read down through the comments, some of the SAR guys posted to it.
  9. I think Tom Scott made this new video just for Nat:

    RIP: Roy Batty

    Someone pointed this out: "Blade Runner" was set in 2019, so Rutger died the same year as his Roy Batty character.

  13. Youtube channel "Engineering Explained" runs the math on the potential performance of the new Vette:
  14. Same thing on iPhone today. Clickjacking via malicious Javascript. You can disable it by disabling Javascript, but that cure is almost as bad as the problem. since the site uses a lot of legitimate Javascript. Bikeforums.net went through this crap a year ago, and finally stamped it out. The problem is that websites often use ad-brokers, and the ad-brokers don't even know the trash is being slipped in. Article about it: https://www.wired.com/story/pop-up-mobile-ads-surge-as-sites-scramble-to-stop-them/

  18. I'm pretty sure Luke Aikins hit at terminal, (although the net was even softer than Gary's cardboard boxes).
  19. A one-hour episode of "60 Minutes Australia", all about the 737 Max fiasco. In other news, there is a show called "60 Minutes Australia".
