It's possible. His weight is resting on her shoulders, he's also supporting himself with his legs on her hips. She's supporting him with her hands under his butt, but her elbows are locked in at her sides on top of his legs, so she's supporting him with her skeleton and not as much with her muscles. It's pretty doable… » 12/19/14 7:17pm Friday 7:17pm

I listened to the first episode on This American Life and found it totally captivating. I think it covers a lot of very important topics like the inherent flaws in the criminal justice system, the unreliability of memory, the fallout from a horrific tragedy, and how story telling shapes our perception of events...but… » 12/12/14 8:16pm 12/12/14 8:16pm

Reminds me of the time I was working with a bunch of kids at camp. They were speculating about my age not believing that I was actually in my 30s (23-25 was the consensus) when the one sitting next to me looks at me seriously and says: "what's wrong with your eye?"

I grew up in South Florida where they build the same kind of cheap plywood/stucco complexes, except they're faux Spanish instead of faux Italian. They load those complexes up with amenities like gyms and pools so they can market them as 'luxury' but skimp on the building materials. They might have granite counter… » 12/08/14 9:30pm 12/08/14 9:30pm

Having cops yell at you is absolutely terrifying. Anyone who thinks a couple of seconds is enough time to figure out what's going on and comply with an order is naive. They could have yelled "put the gun down" 10 or 20 times but if the kid didn't have enough time to process the information he wasn't going to be able… » 11/27/14 12:46am 11/27/14 12:46am

My favorite is to mix it with lemonade. It's not a common drink at a bar, but it's good. I think decent bourbons (Maker's Mark, Bulleit, and Knob Creek) are good for both mixed drinks and sipping. If you're dropping more money, you'll probably just want to sip (maybe with ice) because otherwise what's the point of… » 11/26/14 9:06pm 11/26/14 9:06pm
