Wii Tennis

693. -51.

It’s been twenty-two days since I last played. Clearly, I’ve suffered some atrophy. Bad kitty! Lol

744. -5.

 

 

 

Not a bad score. I would like to do some boxing, but some little boy who shall remain nameless finally broke the nunchuk through little-kid-carelessness.

New Hover Vehicle Recalls ‘Star Wars’ Bike – Yahoo! News

Hover vehicle similar to Star Wars' speeder bike

The aerial vehicle resembles a science fiction flying bike with two ducted rotors instead of wheels, but originates from a design abandoned in the 1960s because of stability and rollover problems. Aerofex, a California-based firm, fixed the stability issue by creating a mechanical system — controlled by two control bars at knee-level — that allows the vehicle to respond to a human pilot’s leaning movements and natural sense of balance.

“Think of it as lowering the threshold of flight, down to the domain of ATV’s (all-terrain vehicles),” said Mark De Roche, an aerospace engineer and founder of Aerofex.

Goblin Road Hob Goblin

GenCon isn’t called the biggest four days in gaming for nothing. As Howard Andrew Jones recently pointed out, it’s easy to go for several years and completely miss major tracks of programming (such as the fantastic Writer’s Symposium programs). One thing that’s easy to overlook amidst all the games are the great crafting booths…

Geek Ladies: Papers, Please

 

It seems that the difference between whether or not you get to be a girl in a skimpy outfit who is a Real Geek and one who is just pretending is whether or not you talk to Peacock, though. I have an alternate theory of what’s going on here. Some women who cosplay at cons don’t pay attention to Peacock. Instead of being chill about it and understanding that not everyone is going to want to bone you immediately because she likes the same comic book as you, he instead retreats to accusing them of being cock teases who only do this for attention.

I’ve noticed that embittered dudes like this way overrate how much women want to be seen as hot. I mean, yeah, it’s really important to a lot of women. I like to look good myself. But this fantasy that there’s legions of women who are so calculating about fulfilling this need that they buy or make a costume referencing something they have no interest in, go into spaces that are bewildering for outsiders, and preen around for guys that they have no interest in, for no other reason than to get a rise out of rejecting them? That’s grade A paranoia. That’s black-helicopters-are-coming-for-you paranoia.

Wii Boxing

149. +74.

Tennis usually works to distract and relax me, to work away the aches and sore muscles, but not today. I tried yoga (mixed with assorted strength exercises) in Wii Fit, to no avail. Still tense and cranky. On to boxing! Turns out I just needed to punch air, and I knocked that computer character on his virtual ass!

Exhilaration, and exhaustion. At least now I’m sore for a reason.

675. -76.

Guess that’s what happens when you go into the game all pissed off.

I meant to start keep record of my score here back when it was 500, but kept forgetting.

Herbal Insect Repellents

Do you hate mosquitoes and other pests, but hate the smell of bug spray just as much? Try some of these herbal insect repellents!

Citronella – If the word citronella makes you think of tiki torches, the people at the candle companies are doing their jobs right. But citronella isn’t just for candles. You can wear it, too. Citronella is an essential oil derived from lemongrass, and it’s one of the most beloved mosquito repelling substances around (mosquitoes were apparently not included in that unscientific survey).

Lavender – While lavender is an almost universally loved fragrance among humans, bugs just hate it! Lavender is great for repelling flies, mosquitoes, gnats, and other pests. You can even rub some lavender oil on your pets to help prevent fleas.

Cedar – While cedar chests and chips have long been used to repel months, most people don’t realize this fragrant wood is equally effective against mosquitoes and other biting insects. No, you don’t have to climb inside of a cedar chest or hang a block of the stuff around your neck. Just get your hands on some cedar essential oil.

Lemon Eucalyptus – If you want to repel koalas in the Australian outback, eucalyptus definitely won’t work, but it’s great for chasing away mosquitoes. Bonus: it’ll also clear your sinuses.

Peppermint – Misting peppermint oil onto your skin is a nice, cool, refreshing treat in the summertime. It doesn’t hurt that pests, such as like mosquitoes and fleas, hate the smell.
