    - The song that plays at the end of RedLetterMedia's reviews is a remix of Otis Redding's "Shake"

    - Condoleezza Rice's name comes from the Italian phrase "Con Dolcezza" which means "With Sweetness".

    - Humminbird fish finders with dual-beam operation will show fish appearing in the 83kHz beam in blue while fish in the 200kHz beam are shown in orange.

    EDIT -- The letter T is finicky on my keyboard. *interesting*

    EDIT 2 -- And these new forums STILL will not let us edit titles.

    Assessment I took for my positive psychology class.


    Your Top Strength

    Judgment, critical thinking, and open-mindedness
    Thinking things through and examining them from all sides are important aspects of who you are. You do not jump to conclusions, and you rely only on solid evidence to make your decisions. You are able to change your mind.

    Your Second Strength
    Capacity to love and be loved
    You value close relations with others, in particular those in which sharing and caring are reciprocated. The people to whom you feel most close are the same people who feel most close to you.

    Your Third Strength
    Perspective (wisdom)
    Although you may not think of yourself as wise, your friends hold this view of you. They value your perspective on matters and turn to you for advice. You have a way of looking at the world that makes sense to others and to yourself.

    Your Fourth Strength
    Social intelligence
    You are aware of the motives and feelings of other people. You know what to do to fit in to different social situations, and you know what to do to put others at ease.

    Your Fifth Strength
    Appreciation of beauty and excellence
    You notice and appreciate beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in all domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience.

    Due to ancient volcanic activity, homeowners on the North Shore of Lake Superior (the world's largest freshwater lake) occasionally hit the wrong aquifer when drilling wells and get salt water from prehistoric oceans buried beneath lava flows.

    The track of music played during Final Jeopardy is called "Think."


    And Vin Disel has his D&D stats (fake) tattooed on him for a movie and is like a super D&D nerd.

    In Wayne's World we learn that Milwaukee means "The Good Land". Well for years I have passed through Saginaw Michigan and see a city and bridge named Zilwaukee and I always forgot to look up its meaning. SO:

    It means nothing. A couple of brothers founded the area and wanted to try and trick people into thinking they were going to Milwaukee or something similar or related. Wa wa.

    Scantological, the study of feces. It came from a book:

    "I am Viscount Sir Mortimer Verweather, and not to be spoken to by any hedge-knight. I can trace my linegae back to King Arthur!"

    Sir Brian told him in fulsome scatological terms what he could do with his lineage.

    TIL Prenn got his heart kicked in the balls. I also learned that he seems to be handling it pretty well.

    Walmart uses sumac as a flavoring in its hummus instead of lemon. Impressive.

    I checked out my sister-in-law's Facebook page, and apparently she and my brother are planning on moving to Lansing. They'll only be living two hours away, but it's kinda far....
