Bird's Eye View of F&CS

No longer will I need to fight over the window seat on flights or lean over my wife to see down to the civilization below from a bird's eye view. With Google Earth, I've seen just about everything there is to see.

Out of all the places Google Earth has taken me, I'd have to say flying through the Grand Canyon was the best. With the "Terrain" option turned on, it actually feels like I'm zooming down the Colorado River with rocks whizzing by.

It's also fun to cruise around Tulsa and see everything from above. It gives one a different perspective of his surroundings. Or something like that.

Traffic Waves

Jennie and I had an interesting conversation... er... argument the other day about traffic patterns and something I was struggling desperately to communicate... until now. William Beaty is an Electrical Engineer and amateur "Traffic Engineer" who describes the "Traffic Wave" phenomenon.

This is something that has interested me for several years now. I've noticed time and time again that traffic has what I call "memory," meaning it can "remember" a traffic accident for a long while after the accident is cleared and gone. In rush hour, it can last for a looooong time. This is described best by William, so I'll leave it up to his paper to help you understand. Definitely a good read for anyone who has to drive at all in the city.

I finally got around to uploading a good portion of my pics from the last several months. Included: Star Wars III opening night and Jennie's 25th birthday party. This is a shot of Trae in his full out Darth Maul costume.
