Do these things annoy you also or is it just me?

Getting change back from a purchase and all the bills are not right side up. (even at the bank)

Hearing people on TV saying Schtrong instead of Strong.

What are some things that bug you?

Full disclosure: I’ve been a videogamer since I bought my first computer, a Commodore 64.

I read this book years ago. I liked it so much that I got the Audiobook so Mrs. Geezer and I could listen to it on one of our road trips. She enjoyed it even though she isn’t a gamer.

In fact, she said she wants to listen to it again, the next time we take a roadtrip.

After watching this trailer, I’m really excited about the movie.

Your mileage may vary.

I was searching for YT trailers for the new movie, Dunkirk, and found this 5-minute, single-take tracking shot (in a different movie).

Film fans like geoff will appreciate this.

I’m a new, big fan of a clown. It’s not that I find that terribly surprising–I’m not creeped out by clowns, I just don’t really think about them one way or another. Anyhoo, as many time-wasting link-clickers can attest, the Wide World of the Web is chock-full of click bait. And I’m pretty good at ignoring it. But I have clicked a couple of America’s Got Talent videos recently. There’s a deaf girl (Mandy Harvey) who did a great job singing an original song. You can find it if you’re interested. Then, a few days ago, I clicked on something about a clown that brought the house down.

This guy:

I had never heard this song until I saw the Johnny Cash video. I figured he wrote it.

Here are 3 versions of the song, including the original, (which is my least favorite).

 

Here’s Johnny’s video:

No More Flat Tires July 15, 2015

Ummmm Donuts!

Currently tires are…

at their core they’re just piles of air, surrounded by a rubber donut.

Hankook Tire thinks we can do better. The South Korean manufacturer has been developing a non-pneumatic tire for a while. We first saw the concept in 2013, when it was one integrated unit, combining tire and rim in one.

Now, Hankook has completed initial testing on its fifth-generation airless tire, dubbed the iFlex. The tires do not require any air pressure, instead relying on a new type of eco-friendly material (the company demurs when asked for details). Geometric shapes built into the material provide the bounce and springiness normally provided by air pressure. But, unlike the previous iFlex, this version’s designed to mount onto a traditional rim, making it compatible with current vehicles.

Hankook ran the iFlex through a battery of tests to compare it to more conventional rubber, measuring durability, hardness, stability, slalom and speed, at up to 80 mph. The company says the tires matched conventional tires in terms of performance.
