All 135 Space Shuttle Launches At Once

I am nostalgic for the days of the space race……

My guess is that occupational health and safety laws would prevent us from going back to the moon because some shiny arsed dickhead in a fluoro vest would not sign off on it because someone didnt have their certificate in rocket piloting.

A Letter From Mark Zuckerberg

Nice little touch up from The New Yorker

At Facebook headquarters, we like to have all-night coding parties where we get shitfaced and write algorithms and other computer stuff you wouldn’t understand. I want you to do the same thing, except instead of coding, I want you to click on random ads for Ancestry.com and Christian Mingle, over and over and over again. You don’t even have to buy anything—just keep clicking. And drinking.

Looks stuffed to me…..

I was reminded of this whilst listening to a How Stuff Works podcast on How Disco Works

Might get me some of those pants for my AIA presentation….

AIA Conference

Apparently I am presenting at the Australian Investors Conference on the Gold Coast next Tuesday.

Not really my target audience – wonder how I will go when I tell them and then prove to them that time in the market is crap and dollar cost averaging is a tool for fools. Sounds like it might be fun.

Awe

Although the study looks to investigate several aspects of this emotion, the initial — and perhaps most intriguing– hypothesis is pretty striking: the experience of awe will expand your perception of time……

…..The results lined up perfectly with the study’s founding premise (which was probably unsurprising to the study’s authors). They show that experiencing a moment of awe can indeed alter your perception of time — specifically, it makes you feel like you have more time………

Referencing current research, the study offers several explanations for this phenomenon. Perhaps most integral, though, to this study is the fact that awe puts the beholder in the moment, which can augment his or her sense of time.
