So far I just want to squeeze the neck of only one person this morning.

My wife and I walk every day (at least when there's no snow on the ground) for about an hour. I never thought of combining steps, BMI, weight from a scale, barometric pressure, temperature and moon luminosity index to create charts and nerdify my walk. :)

Getting a pedometer or fitness band is a good first step (heh) towards a quantified self, but combining that data with information on your weight, body fat, and BMI can take your nerdy fitness routine to the next level. Fitbit's Wi-Fi Smart Scale is down to $99 today on Amazon, which is as cheap as we've ever seen it. While you can use this on its own, you'll get the most out of the data if you're already in the Fitbit ecosystem. Luckily, they offer plenty of pedometers to get you started at a wide range of price points.

I remember saying that regulators will get their hands into the bitcoin cookie jar sooner or later, in which I also received some critical remarks for that comment. But it seems that I was not that far off.

After what happened at Mt. Gox, it should not be a surprise that politicians are jumping into the Bitcoin is evil bandwagon.

We'll see... but I would not be surprised to see a dollar backed crypto currency somewhere in the future.

Wave energy plants in Brazil - English subtitles by Sérgio Pereira on YouTube

... those Jr. High dances in which all boys stick around with the boys and the girls with the girls. I know that it is tough to go out and go loco when you are a natural introvert (I am). and being a wall flower is a common trait of introversion or shyness. If you think about this, it makes sense being that other people sitting on the sides at the same party being that they are also at the same boat as you are.

If You're a Wallflower, Seek Out Other Wallflowers at Events

Scott Pilgrim meets Ramona Flowers by Damien Thornes on YouTube

If you're a bit on the shy side and tend to stick to the wall at most social events, that doesn't mean you can't still have a great time. Inc points out that all you need to do is seek out other wallflowers.

I have been learning Esperanto for quite some time, but it was not until last year in which I took time to be fairly fluent. Some people may see it as fool's errand and I respect your opinion. However, even though many do not believe it as a practical global second language, it will still help you to improve your mental health and delay the effects of Alzheimer if you are monolingual. It is a good way to learn a second language on the cheap while giving you all the benefits of knowing two languages.

Esperanto on Onehourtranslation

One aspect of the human experience that you get a clear sense of when you work in language translation is the fact that history moves quite slowly. When you read a history book, it’s easy to forget that decades and even centuries are being compressed on the page, making it seem as if historic events should have been perfectly obvious to all those involved. How could people living in Italy in the 4th Century not be aware that the Roman Empire was about to collapse? Because ‛collapse’ is a poor choice of words for a process that took centuries to complete, and often brought very little immediate change to those people.
