Tactical Nuclear Penguin

Adam sent me this article about a new Brewdog beer that's pretty insane.

The BrewDog team have pulled off our most audacious and ambitious project to date, and smashed a world record in the process. We have today, Thursday 26 November 2009, set a new world record after creating the strongest beer in the world. Weighing in at an ABV of 32%, BrewDog’s ‘Tactical Nuclear Penguin’ beats the previous record of 31% held by German beer brand Schorschbraer.



Rubik's TouchCube

So I thought this was awesome...

The Rubik’s TouchCube seamlessly blends cutting edge technology with the world’s #1 puzzle to create the first completely electronic, solvable Rubik’s Cube. Featuring touch sensor technology on all 6 sides and lights in every square, slide the lights with a simple swipe of your finger to mimic the moves of the original Cube. To eliminate false inputs or moves, the TouchCube uses a motion-detecting accelerometer to determine which side is facing up and active. The Rubik’s TouchCube also includes a built-in solver, so now anyone can easily get a hint or learn how to solve the Cube step by step. 
It can be found on Amazon here:

Happy Thanksgiving

Hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving and relaxing weekend.  I took Wednesday off work and drove up to Monroe where my family was meeting at my parents alternate residence.  

A good friend I met at a CYP event, Tiffani Shoop, is also from Ohio (Centerburg) so she rode with me and we met her Dad in Jeffersonville.  It was great to have company for the long ride so I enjoyed that and she was happy to see her family for the weekend.  Here's Tiffani and I at trivia a while ago.

NBA Book

Mike sent me this article about refs in the NBA, The Book The NBA Doesn't Want You To Read.


That article is followed up with:  Excerpts from The Book the NBA Doesn't Want You to Read.  It's interesting, a former ref talking about how he and other refs from the NBA would "fix" or alter a game's outcome from the calls they would make.

I 'won' a bluetooth headset (moto-H780) at a recent Sprint/Nextel seminar.  


It was mostly a Nextel plug and they wanted to see who could find out where 5 people were at that very moment--calling, text, or Nextel push-to-talk walkie talkie.  I just used google latitude (thanks glatitude friends that actually use it!) and pwned the presenter, who thought he would impress us by 'chirping' a talk group with a location request.  

If you use google latitude and i'm on your friends list just leave a comment and you're eligible to win (or add me...).  I'll just have Kyle roll a dice or pick numbers out of a hat.  I can give it to the winner next time i see them or ship it less S/H. ($5-$10?).  entry ends in a week.

Root Suit RIOT!

Hope to see some of these in the stands at future Bearcats and Buckeyes games!  Well, any team and their respective colors but I just wanted to make some examples.  This is the same person/group/company? that offers the amazing greenman suit that I wore the past two Halloweens.

awesome.  more info here:

These actually have a tendency to get shown on TV when they pan the crowd and show fans cheering--the cameraman and comentators liked it when they saw greenman at a philadelphia Eagles game.  UC hosts West Virginia next Friday night on ESPN 2...Rallycats needs to know about this and contact them for a group discount.

So, if you want to come visit but don't want to sleep on the couch or air mattress you can stay in the guest unit--the same model as mine.  one of my first posts shows my floor plan but here it is again:
