I like Waterfalls

I, however, tend to consider them toys which are played with at the bottom, not at the top. (At least not anywhere with lots of water and/or high drops. 1m falls on the Madawaska are fine at the top). According to, there's a lot people who disagree with me.

Apparently at the top of Victoria Falls there's a natural pool where people go play. Pictures show people basically sitting in the water, looking out over the edge of the falls and down. Honestly, they look quite believable . The only reason I'd doubt would be if these were some other falls, or maybe there's another pool a little ways down from here.

Either way, I'm NOT trying this one.

Do Nut Sorters Dream of Mechanized Squirrels?

Ok, interesting question: why do we respond the way we do to bugs. I'm still not quite sure how much of me not squishing them is from the fact that it's a lot easier to trap them than clean up after them, and how much is from other aspects of being a city kid. Opinions?

Oh, and if you don't get the title, my ME 380 project (nut sorter) is the closest I've come to making a robot. If you still don't get it, you haven't read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? recently enough.
