I was reading the rules for this crazy unpowered boat race starting today
The first leg is from Port Townsend WA 40 miles to Victoria BC.
The second leg is from Victoria BC, 710 miles to Ketchikan AK.
Anyway, in the rules was this chart of battery life that I thought interesting

battery chart interesting.

race on the other hand is insane.

no engines, no support teams, ready, go.

first place, $10,000. Second place, a set of steak knives.

this year they have three paddleboard entrants. W . T . F .

We got rid of ours--and also our land line--maybe six months ago. Haven't missed it.

Well, yeah. The Golden Age of The Far Side. Who here wasn't a fan then, I ask you?

Excellent detective work, by the way, well done. It's exactly as I remember it.

Larson retired on 1-01-95, that's 22.5 years ago and his cartoons are still popular.

A guy was unhappy with Comcast because he was paying for 150 Mbps and not getting it so he set up an automatic system to tweet every hour if it dropped below 50 Mbps, just 1/3rd of what he was paying for.

The FCC reports each year on internet service provided to panelists (the 12000 people monitored by Samknows. I'm one). Samknows is a British company hired by the FCC to do this.

How much time the average person spends with whom during there lifetime.
Makes sense, early 20s carousing with friends drops off, so does your parents family as you start your own. Cow orkers fade after you retire, children head out to their future after you're 40, partners die off after 70, and alone sometimes by choice and sometimes by isolation.
