    dumbest way you've pulled a muscle?

    I was sitting on my couch watching a hockey game with (I'll admit) not the greatest posture when I sneezed and pulled a muscle in my lower back. I was worthless for the next two days.

    Lets "science"

    I love theories that aren't my own. It makes my life so much easier. To describe meetings where I've had to defend theories of my own as combative would be gracious.

    Canadian Pre-paid SIMs

    Update: I think we're going to be fine without. The rental car we picked up has a navigation system so between that, a paper map, and wi-fi the phone will stay in airplane mode. Now it's just a matter of planning hikes around the thunderstorms.

    Canadian Pre-paid SIMs

    Thanks for the tips, I appreciate it. I've downloaded offline maps in google maps of all the areas we're planning on going to, so we should be able to get by without it for most of the trip. It's just nice to have when initially getting sorted out in case wi-fi is hard to come by.

    Canadian Pre-paid SIMs

    Any recommendations regarding carriers for picking up a SIM to use in the Canmore/Banff area? Phone is an iPhone 5 (A1428) Is Rogers the way to go?

    How do take your hot dog ?

    I'm originally from Chicago* so of course the Red Hot is my favorite. I consider mustard, onions, sport peppers, and celery salt to be the stars of the show. Hungry while wandering around Reykjavik, I had a hot dog with mustard, remoulade, and crispy fried onions. It was also quite good. *...area. Grew up in 60067. Gotta nip that shit in the bud around here.
  7. FYI The box allows you to select "subject and body", "subject", "body", or "username" but what you select doesn't affect the results you get. It does generate a url with the get_var "search_fields" assigned correctly but the server doesn't appear to be doing anything with it.

    Best warning sign ever

    Variants of this one date back a long time. This one was next to a random vibration test controller.

    Official 2014-2015 NHL thread!

    I think it's going to be 5 or 6 games leaning towards 5. Hawks will probably need to make an adjustment or two after a loss. The way the Hawks play though, you have to beat them very early in the game or else you're done.

    Official 2014-2015 NHL thread!

    Chicago figured out how to beat the Ducks' aggressive forecheck that was causing them so much trouble in this series and that was the end of that.

    Most distinctive Cause of Death by state

    Very bizarre article... Doesn't seem to explain what is going on very well... Also, their CDC link is wrong: try this one So basically he went through 136 causes of death and tagged each state with the cause of death whose rate for that state is most out of line with the national average (aka cause of death with the highest rate ratio.) However, without some way of visualizing the rate ratio associated with the cause of death in each state you can't really conclude anything. If states have a relatively low rate ratio for all causes of death then this map would just be noise for them.

    Weird stock photo of me skydiving

    Knowing Gary and seeing that jumpsuit, I guarantee that photo is at least two years old.

    math question

    Calculus, and mathematics "beyond" it, are pretty rough if you don't have an application that lets you appreciate what it is you're doing.
