I remember watching the original Cosmos starring Carl Sagan when I was a kid. My family watched the "new" Cosmos last night, with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Although there were a few cheesy moments (e.g., "look at that asteroid... No, not that one... The one on the left"), overall I thought it was very interesting.
I can say this, my 17 and 13 year-old boys, and my 10 year-old daughter were absolutely riveted. There aren't many shows on prime-time TV that we can watch together, and enjoy healthy dialogue.
Knowing the education level on this board is a bit higher than others, I was wondering if any MGoBloggers watched, and if they liked it, or disliked it. Thoughts?
P.S. Please bear in mind the "no religion" tenet of this board... Thoughtful, tasteful dialogue is the goal.
Recently I've developed a new favorite hobby that I would like to share with all of you. I recently acquired a Blade 350 QX Quad Rotor and a Hero 3+ GoPro. For those of you who don't know, a quad rotor is like a helicopter but with four propellers instead of one:
Last week, I took it to the Big House for some flying. I was able to snap this angle:
You can watch the whole video here:
(sorry, don't know how to imbed)
Here's some other stuff that I've flown around on campus:
So if you're ever walking around campus or the Arb, and you see someone flying a quad rotor around, feel free to stop by and say hi! I'm happy to chat about it and answer questions.
We've seen some articles on Harden come out recently, but this still looks like it will be an awesome look behind the scenes. Incudes interviews with Tom Brady and Desmond Howard.
I wanted to throw this out there for any fellow strength training enthusiasts. I'm moving my training business from my garage to a real live commercial building in the next week or so and am upgrading a bunch of my equipment. As such, I'm looking to sell my custom built power rack. I just thought I'd post it here first simply because when I purchased, I had the fabricator powder coat it in maize and blue. Not highlighter yellow, but actual old school maize.
At any rate, I'm in Plymouth if anyone is interested. It was built for me by Strength and Power Equipment out of Texas. Features: heavy gauge 2x2 construction, 2 sets J-cups, band pegs bottom, weight storage pins, double set of band/chain hooks, monkey bar chin front, fat bar chin back (2"), rod and pin safeties, West side hole spacing. There are also dip handles that come with this, but are not pictured. The bench in the pic is NOT being sold. Asking $1150 but would consider reasonable offers. You'd also have to be able to come and pick this up.
I am getting fat. The girlfriend is starting to make jokes about my belly and it’s making me upset. Time to find some recreation!
Rec sports are always fun, and many people on here are active. The problem I always have is finding a league and a team. So, let’s make a table or a spreadsheet sticky thingy! …but we don’t so….
If you are interested in playing Flag Football this spring and summer, please post! Depending on how many people respond, I can either organize a team or a league. There are two places that run games, High Velocity Sports in Canton and Total Sports in Wixom. In a week, I will have registration PDF’s and have further instructions.
This is unorganized, but maybe with some help from everyone, we can get this ball rolling!
