Robocalls

Last year, Americans received 47.8 billion robocalls, averaging 146 calls per man, woman and child. On person who was probably the victim of a software bug, received 117 robocalls in a single day.

According to Congressman Greg Walden, “This year, nearly half the calls made to cell phones in the U.S. will be spam. These calls are more than just a pesky annoyance. Robocalls perpetuate fraud, threaten personal privacy, infiltrate our health care system, and undermine our communications system.”

Legally, robocalls can target only business phones, but that doesn’t seem to stop anyone.

Worst Pickleball Surface Ever

Worst Pickleball Surface Ever!

This has to be the worst pickleball surface ever. It appears to be full of cracks, the lines are hard to see, there are distracting patterns, and it even seems to be wet in places, yet at times they are playing a very high-quality game. Next time the sun is in your eyes, it is too windy, the net is too floppy, or anything else is wrong, remember that it’s possible to play a good game even in a situation like this.

Five Years In The Bike Shop

Copyright 2013, John Flaherty

There was once a little bicycle shop, ordinary in every way, except for the people associated with it. Brian the owner, the employees, and many of the customers were the most interesting and eccentric people I have ever met. That’s what this book is about. I have changed the location and the names to protect those involved. Everything else is true, exactly as it happened. The bike shop lasted five years before it came to a strange end. Welcome to the story of the shop and it’s people. Continue reading “Five Years In The Bike Shop”

Do You Know What A Molecule Is?

The National Science Foundation conducted a study and found that only 33 percent of Americans know what a molecule is.

Pictured above is a water molecule, two little hydrogen atoms attached to an oxygen atom. Note that the hydrogen atoms aren’t directly opposite each other, but arranged more like Mickey Mouse’s ears.

When water molecules are placed in an alternating electromagnetic field, the ears are pulled one way, then the other. Do it at just the right speed, 2.45 gigahertz, or two-billion-four-hundred-fifty-thousand times per second, the natural ‘resonance’ of water, and a lot of friction is built up resulting in heat. That’s how microwave ovens work.

The Extent of Human Capacity

We remember one trillion things in our lifetime.

Computer scientists say our brains have a storage capacity approximately the same as an 11-terabyte hard drive, which with current solid-state technology can be stored in an area about the size of a fingertip.

Our eyes are each equivalent to a 137-megapixel camera, roughly ten times higher resolution than a typical modern digital camera.

These comparisons are a bit rough, because humans are made from wetware, not hardware. For instance, the retina has much greater sensitivity near the center than at the edges, while a camera has uniform sensitivity. The memory of a hard drive is digital. Each ‘cell’ in a hard drive can hold a one or a zero. Each cell in the human brain is more of an analog mechanism, firing or not based on many input factors.
