Bald Eagle nest transmitted live

Hornby Island, Bald Eagle Nest -- Vancouver BC

Someone stuck a camera in a tree, hooked it up to an encoder, and pointed it at a wild Bald Eagle nest. Strangely captivating.... Probably the closest any of us will ever get to one of these birds ;)

Talk about addicting!

Are these images moving or not?

Pretty neat, huh? And NONE of them are moving. Love science.

Paige: If you go on the potty, you can wear Big Girl Underwear!

This is exactly how we found little Miss Paige today, dressed up in - go ahead and count: 7 pairs of Big Girl Underwear. You can tell she is trying not to smile while Beck and I are DYING!

Something to consider...

Make your own motivational poster here.

Irish Diplomacy

"The ability to tell someone to go to hell so that he will look forward to the trip."

Thanks Shawn for the picture message!

Do you know how I know that I'm gay?

Because I just bought Kelly Clarkson's new CD.

(not that there is anything wrong with being gay.)

I also bought the Nickelback CD, does that offset Kelly Clarkson?

Image burned into my retinas

I fired the decorator. She re did the entire blog - but it was too dark for my liking, and I'm not paying her either.

I felt like reading the light-colored text on the dark background burned the words into my retinas. I know you felt the same way - thanks for not making me feel bad about it.

UNAN1MOUS - on Fox

Saw a commercial for this today, and thought it looked really intriguing! Could go either way - with all the reality shows out there.

I also loved The Mole, so what the hell do I know?

"In a dramatic new television experiment, a diverse group of nine strangers are locked in a bunker, where they’ll remain until they decide who is worthy of a 1.5-million-dollar cash prize.

There is a catch, though, because the longer it takes to make a unanimous decision, the less money there will be to win. If they take too long, they will be left with nothing.

Upon entering their isolated living quarters, the nine contestants are cut off from the outside world, locked away, and presented the opportunity to win $1.5 million. The only thing standing between them and the money is a simple vote. If they are able to come to a unanimous decision about who should win the money, the game is over. If the outcome of the vote is not unanimous, the money clock is activated and the cash prize begins its countdown with potentially thousands of dollars lost every hour until the next voting period.

In every episode, each of the nine contestants, who include a minister, an atheist, a ladies’ man and a feminist, must convince the others to vote only for him or her. Before the vote, personal facts, secrets and lies are revealed, perhaps helping them decide who should receive the money. As the game progresses, contestants will be eliminated from winning the cash prize, but – in a television first – they will continue to live in the bunker and will continue to vote.

Will contestants’ greed for the money outweigh their desire to help someone potentially less fortunate than themselves? Who will lie and connive, and who will be truthful and sincere? No matter what, the final vote must be UNAN1MOUS."

Want a job at Google? Get ready to answer some pretty tough questions

Over at gamedev.net, one of the guys had a telephone interview with Google, and here were a few of their questions. Apparently, if you make it past this step - you sign a confidentiality agreement not do disclose any information.

Here are the questions:

Q: "You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blades will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?"

Q: "How would you find out if a machine's stack grows up or down in memory?"

Q: "Explain a database in three sentences to your eight-year-old nephew."

Q: "How many gas stations would you say there are in the United States?"

What? The height of a nickel? Stack? Ok, I could do the database one. Gas stations? Ahh, a lot?

And remember, this is the PHONE INTERVIEW. Imagine the next steps! Love Google. They make me feel so dumb.

My new mailbox

Thank god the weather man was wrong about all the snow and ice we DIDN'T get today. It allowed me to spend some time digging a hole for our new mailbox.

In other unrelated news, the Dollar Store in town has really helped improve quality shoppers.
