I bought two more pairs of Specialized Grail Fingerless Bike Gloves.

I wear them when typing and biking. Left my first pair on the airplane coming home from Thanksgiving :/

Not too garishly colored, no velcro, fits nice. Apparently I wear XXL gloves for this style.

07/19/2016 - 11:23am Am I alone?

I love Draftageddon. Snark is heavenly manna.

02/11/2016 - 12:18pm SJSU

Every time SJSU comes up, I marvel at the fact that they have 3 former Michigan coaches (no clue if they also have so lesser ones). (Borges, GERG, Ferrigno)

To be fair, I had to dig through like 4 links to find the original source which is here:

Fair!  Still, someone should have said it. (I at least always dream of gettings the COMMENTS/COMMENCE post before The Knowledge can.)

You're supposed to say COMMENTS COMMENCE. You're obviously just a fake.

Helmet stripes tell me Michigan!

And then I think for a moment.... Aren't these Iowa's colors?


But I like it overall! :)

Fun write-up!

Utah scored 24, not 17 though.

This robot is also number 7.  You'll have to take my word for it.  It has a football!

Seems like this has been happening for 6ish games though. It's worrisome.

Surface Pro is awesome. Get back to me when the iPad has an active digitizer.

It's one thing to like your own farts, but to like sludgefart...

(IMO, I haven't seen any significant bitching at DG, just sadness... or at players in general. Of course, I stay out of the game threads and post-game snowflake threads)

Bravo, Heiko!

All I did was photoshop Brian's face onto what was apparently Nickelback's face during preview week :)

But to answer your question, most of their stuff seems to be online too. I like their robotics blog.

09/07/2014 - 5:41pm Good intro

I love IEEE spectrum content generally. I'll go read that instead now.

(I love your stuff. I'm just not recovered enough to read it now)

08/30/2014 - 8:30pm Denard

Denard. He was right there! I don't get it....

08/29/2014 - 9:19pm Thanks, heh. It's amazing how

Thanks, heh. It's amazing how similar the hair was in the original picture. I could have just copied Brian's hair and changed its color, if I were good enough  at colorizing.

08/29/2014 - 9:24am Worth it.

Oh, I guess that was Nickleback. I enjoy being ignorant of large swaths of popular culture.

08/28/2014 - 11:09pm Good eye.

05/24/2014 - 10:56am Nay. Some fraction of that

Nay. Some fraction of that light is reflected...

And how is that residual heat any different from current pavement?  I'm sure fresh (aka still black) pavement is better than grey pavement, but the effect in winter is going to be minimal.

(Yes, I think this idea is incredibly impractical.)

I no longer have a beef with the thread title.

The moose.

A bit wider, maybe, but not full-width. Widescreen monitors aren't intended for lines of text to span the damn things.

I prefer it exactly as is, forever.

I'd rather not. I feel we'd be risking the re-emergence of Tacopants.

09/08/2013 - 11:21pm Great stuff

You lost me all that wrestling stuff though. ;)

Snagged us that image! I like.

09/07/2013 - 12:34pm Hah

Penn State QB just pulled a Tommy Rees fumble for an EMU touchdown :D

08/03/2013 - 10:14pm I haven't done dogs, but

I haven't done dogs, but plenty of brats... It works great to brown them in a frypan for 5 mins (flipping frequently) in a dime size blob of oil, then simmering in ~1/4 cup of water for 12 minutes (water nigh boils away.  Covered for both steps.

06/29/2013 - 12:56pm As an engineer, construction

As an engineer, construction in general (not road work) is super distracting and interesting. In conclusion, nothing should be built, ever.

That describes most old people wearing hearing aids.

(I am authorized to make this joke as I wear em...)

06/27/2013 - 11:55am Questionably, is how.

Questionably, is how. :)

There's a thread asking for streams practically every weekend, and it's always the latest incarnation of VIPBox and FirstRow.  And the link frequently gets posted at the top of the LiveBlogs.

06/27/2013 - 10:27am I've never had cable since

I've never had cable since escaping the nest.  Or a TV of my own.  I have had close to zero problems streaming every football game the last two seasons.

The quality isn't amazing, but it's good enough for me (given the amount of grumbling I see in LiveChat, this is clearly not the case for most on the board though :P)

A Song of Ice and Fire!


What? GoT gets mentioned all the time on the forums here, so it's relevant to Michigan Football, right?

06/18/2013 - 11:39am Oh.

I was kind of expecting these.

They're like waterfalls, right?

06/10/2013 - 5:32pm FYI

So the logo changed like this (new one is wider):

In conclusion, months of hard work by whomever it is the University pays for this stuff can be summarized as:


It's not very effective···

Picture Pages of the whiteboard?

Such an awesome read, and posted just as I sat down for lunch.

He wrote another really interesting book: Nuclear Reactor Analysis.


Worth having on your bookshelf. Worth reading if you're a nuclear engineer...

Shit like this is why I just don't have much interest in watching most basketball.

There's supposed to be something more to these free throws than throwing the ball, right? Points maybe?
