I just signed up for the MSF class. Six week wait, which should give me enough time to search the classifieds for something cheap. What are some good entry-level bikes?

When you look in a morror, the image is reversed left to right. Why is it not reversed top to bottom?  What's so special about the horizontal dimension?

Why, yes, I would like to be running at 101.7° during the heat wave.

Other than this consequence the show was awesome.

I have a question about thermostats. Specifically, I want to buy one. A special kind of one, granted, but one which is totally obvious, and yet, frustratingly, does not seem to have been invented.

You are not getting an answer because the person you are calling has left the phone unattended on his desk. This is when you should leave a message, not call over and over again.

I've read the first letter in this week's Savage Love three times, and still can't determine with certainty if the writer is:

  • male or female
  • gay, straight, or bi
  • using "girlfriend" to mean "woman I am romantically involved with" or "friend who is female" (the latter usage being completely inappropriate for someone writing to Dan Savage of all people)

Thank goodness for multiple-selection polls.

Beer, welding, math.

Damn it, I can't sleep. No more Thai iced coffee at dinner. It's like I'm getting old.

Inside, details on one of many Nerd Craft projects.

Music, work, raps, reading, physical attraction.
