I love all types of breeds of cats (black) and dogs (Golden Retriever) but have always been bothered by the characteristics people assign to breeds. Like how some are more intelligent than the others. My black cat is super friendly and playful, while my gray tabby is insane and will kill anyone at will. Maybe some… » 12/18/14 2:34am Yesterday 2:34am

The first-gen CLS' styling was pretty revolutionary when it was released but man, the next gen CLS instantly dated it. Compared to the new design this looks pretty bad. Not horrible but the new model really refined the concept to the next level. Kind of like the previous BMW 6 and the new 6. » 12/17/14 10:30pm Wednesday 10:30pm

I'm a huge fan of Microsoft's "flat-design" and bought into their ecosystem including the Nokia Lumia 928. But after almost two years, Windows Phone still has a long ways to go. I will most likely give in and get an iPhone 6 because I just want my smartphone to work. » 12/12/14 8:48pm 12/12/14 8:48pm

I always have a tinge of guilt at how beautiful these killing machines are. I am pretty far to the left but I LOVE military design. I love how they are designed in the most efficient way possible to create destruction which on a purely design level, means beauty in its function much like a car or a desk. It's the old… » 12/12/14 8:40pm 12/12/14 8:40pm

I had three Swiss roommates and all of them have been super modest and humble. I got one to eventually admit that her "farm" was actually a chateau and another that her humble public sector family descended from one of the biggest private banks in Switzerland. So this makes even more sense now. :P » 12/09/14 10:47pm 12/09/14 10:47pm

Dione is about 10 times further away from Cassini than Earth is to Moon and yet the detail looks almost as good. I can't imagine how detailed it looks without a "proper telescope" from so far away. I would guess the lack of atmosphere helps a lot and maybe a very long exposure? » 12/09/14 7:28pm 12/09/14 7:28pm

I can't imagine the thought/reasoning process it took to discover the "standard candles" and how valuable it is to astronomy. Is there a site that explains the history of it? I imagine it was a cumulative process of many different branches of science. » 12/02/14 8:06pm 12/02/14 8:06pm

This is a great list! I love how Williams FW36 was included because they stepped up after so many disappointing years. Mercedes engines made the difference for sure but also because they really had the best livery this year. Martini stripes cannot be beat. I would say it's on par with the Gulf livery. » 11/28/14 4:55am 11/28/14 4:55am
