Looking at the routing on flightawire.com, the flight takes a Southern routing over the Southern Indian ocean. How much of that route shown on Flightaware is even accurate? I assume the green areas near the continents are accurate (presumably within radar coverage), but the white line over the ocea...Jump to post
The Lord of the Rings trilogy was a travesty. They tried to cram too much into the three films -- and covered it at a dizzying pace -- but there was no way they were going to fill-out the characters, or cover anywhere near the amount of adventures in the books, in a mere nine hours. It would have m...Jump to post
Haven't done much NonAv (or Av) shooting in quite awhile, but got out this past weekend to take a couple panoramas: https://photos.smugmug.com/Landscapes/California/Panoramas/i-Nx5MRKW/0/30115fa2/X3/composite1%201-2-22%202-X3.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Landscapes/California/Panoramas/i-CnJStdD/0...Jump to post
Cavitation is caused by a phase change, the rate of phase change depends upon local flow conditions (pressure, velocities, turbulence) as well as fluid properties (saturation pressure, densities, and surface tension). It is not a result of one factor. I see the word "pressure" in there. S...Jump to post

No, the units for force and pressure are not the same. A force applied over an area is by definition a pressure. Newton (force) per meter squared (area). The idea of lift being generated by a differential of pressure can simply be disproved by looking at a rudder on a boat. Pressure in water increa...Jump to post

I like to think of it this way: A backlit, side on, shot from the ground, photo of some common 777 would be rejected for backlit as it's not a very cool photo and not special. On the other hand, an air-to-air or air-to-ground photo of any aircraft that happens to be backlit would be accepted (assum...Jump to post

It is ridiculous to think that a single photo, that captures far less than one second of time, accurately depicts someone's physical/emotional/mental state during a particular event.

You're of course entitled to your opinion, but I'm not sure this opinion is necessarily in the majority. That's fine. I'm not sitting here claiming to speak for the majority of photographers.

Going forward, I think the advice I would give to myself, and indeed all other aspirational photographers, is "edit your photos as minimally as possible, even if you think it looks bland and boring and flat, thats what they want." Yes, as a general rule, less editing is preferred. I would...Jump to post
My son (2 years 10 months) is better at using an iPad than I am. I don't have any qualms about letting him use it.

Well it's clear proof of someone with a Police uniform and corroborates Arnold's presence as the eyewitness in the motorcade who saw him dive for cover.

My friend said in more than a few songs there were parts Richards played that were either mangled or just flat landed way out of tune. Ever listened to a Stones album?

Ever tried talking to SoCal Edison about a power issue?
Took me somewhere in the vicinity of 10 hours on the phone with them over a week to get them to come out and fix a disconnected power line.
All Americans, all spoke perfectly fine English, all thoroughly incompetent.
This photo is none of these things. Are the screeners just bored, or overloaded with high quality photos? How can they possibly claim to assess the noise levels in a photo that is barely 2mp. Soft?

The first paragraph of the Vox piece, unsurprisingly, is completely misleading and uses loaded language about the special that indicates the writer hasn't actually seen it. Total garbage.

I just wonder.... Did Chapelle, early in his career, have a "relationship" with a trans woman and he is still angry about it?

Finally watched the special last night. There were some pretty controversial jokes in there (many of them had nothing to do with trans people), but that's perfectly fine.

That said, glad the series is over. I didn't really expect the Sox to be contenders at all this year, so every win is a bonus.

In my opinion, it's always better to see the movie first, then read the book, if possible. That way, you won't be disappointed, but might actually be surprised by how much more is in the book.

Going to take a massive reversal of fortune for the Yanks to salvage their season now. Sox bullpen is looking solid.

Maybe a better solution would be making the divisions symbolic and seeding the postseason in each league based only on winning percentage. I don't really have a problem with the divisions.

Just glad the Sox managed a comeback win yesterday over the Nats (even though the Nats are my NL team). With that said, I hate, hate, HATE the wildcard game.
