Everyone’s always looking at their tricorders these days.

Okay, so most people call them iPhones.  And this item, called the Node

works with the Android to function as a gyroscope, thermometer, magnetometer, accelerometer, humidity meter, altimeter and barometer.  While NASA has already produced a small gas sensor chip

that plugs right into the iPhone’s dock.  But now someone has gone and taken it a step farther by creating an affordable spectrometer which reads a reflected beam of light to determine the molecular makeup of the object it shines upon.  The small hand-held device works with — what else? — your iPhone.

Tricorders have arrived.  Roddenberry’s guess as to when they would appear was just off by a couple of centuries.

mossyoakswampdonkey:

Everyone needs to support this bill. Theres no reason for ccw permits to not work like drivers licenses. If you can legally carry in your home state, you should be allowed to carry in the other 49. Call all your senators or whoever you need to call to get this bill supported and passed.

The second half of DS9 season 1 has really gotten my attention.

It’s been really good.

And it really just keeps getting better, with the exception of a few speedbumbs. 

Keep going. That show only gets better.

Anonymous said: If you took a PT course you would see that it's not reccomended to squat past parallel. Joint issues will arise in the future. You're putting much stress on your knee when you squat too low. Read up on it.

If you took a kinesiology course you would understand how these things actually work.  I couldn’t care less about your pt course because of science.

The protective ligaments in your knee (PCL, MCL, LCL, ACL) are most effective at full flexion/full extension.  When your knees are 90 degrees of flexion (halfway, parallel) your four protective ligaments aren’t going to give much of a protective force at the knee because they’re so lax.  So if we actually think about this for a second… Your recommended stopping point for a squat is the worst place that you could reverse the motion while under a heavy load.  Right?

As long as you’re able to squat to depth, your form isn’t compromised, and there aren’t any contraindications for you in particular… It’s completely safe to do it.  

Some people are actually idiots, wow.
