I’m off to sit on a cliff. – Nik Kershaw
 
I don’t normally grab an internet story and post it but this is definately worth sharing…

Look at the picture above and you can see where this guy broke through the guardrail
On the right side where the people are standing on the road (pointing). 
The pick-up was traveling from right to left when it crashed through the guardrail. 
It flipped end-over-end, across the culvert outlet, and landed right side up on the left side of the culvert,
facing the opposite direction from which he was traveling.
Now look at the 2nd picture below…
 

That is insane!

Snopes validates it and has a couple other pictures.

I’m like a Dilbert cartoon. – David Spade

David and I have a lot in common I guess…  See TeamBlank’s creations.

Terminology –

A bit is a binary digit, taking a value of either 0 or 1. For example, the number 10010111 is 8 bits long, or in most cases, one modern PC byte. Binary digits are a basic unit of information storage and communication in digital computing and digital information theory. Information theory also often uses the natural digit, called either a nit or a nat. Quantum computing also uses qubits, a single piece of information with a probability of being true.

The bit is also a unit of measurement, the information capacity of one binary digit. It has the symbol bit, or b (see discussion below). The unit is also known as the shannon, with symbol Sh.

Once again I have found a site on the web that will probably consume more of my time than it should.

A comic strip creation site that lets you create characters, emotion, stories, and just about anything you need to express yourself.

Fun stuff!

The 1st Wind Warning

And finally Winter, with its bitin’, whinin’ wind, and all the land will be mantled with snow.Roy Bean
 
The weather these last few days have been crazy.  End of March with 3 days of snow sticking around.  Last night I had a bolt of thunder go off right above my head on the drive home.  It was earth shattering.  24 hours later my ears still feel like they are full of water.  WHAT?
 
Today the ground reacted to all that crazy weather.  Northwest trees do not like unplanned wind and saturated ground.
 
What started off as a decent day ended flat…
