If you want to have kids who are readers, then you first must set an example. If kids see their parents reading books for pleasure, they will be much more inclined to become readers. Read to your kids every day, until they start to learn to read, then have them read to you every day. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a house where both my parents enjoyed reading, and a trip to the town library for new books was a weekly family event.
Oddly enough, I do know how to spell pedantic.
The article says he made the "discovery of the offset rotor head". Was it lying in a field somewhere, and he tripped over it? Perhaps it was discovered growing on a tree in the Amazon Jungle? Or maybe the author is shortchanging Mr. Wallis by failing to use the correct word, "invented". Sadly, his invention not only made him no money, since he could not profit from patenting it (as he was in the RAF at the time, and any patent would belong to the crown), it doesn't even bare his name.
"Yeah, bitch! Magnets!" - Jesse Pinkman
New York's first subway, built in 1870s, and long forgotten until a part of it was discovered during excavation, about a decade ago, was the Beach Pneumatic Transit. Created by Alfred Ely Beach, people sat in capsules which were driven through underground tubes via air pressure. A variety of circumstances prevented it from ever being extended beyond its initial demonstration length.
Quick correction - it was a model from Mighty Joe Young, not King Kong. He hated working with a fur model, because you couldn't touch it without moving some of the fur. He never again created a fur-covered monster.
Sad news. I was fortunate enough to meet him back in 1981, and got his autograph. It was at an advance showing of the original Clash of the Titans, where he gave a presentation before the film. He brought some of the original figures used for Jason and the Argonauts, King Kong, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and other stop-motion classics. Despite all the computer perfection of today's CGI, it will never match the wonder I experienced when, as a kid, I first saw the battle of the skeleton warriors in Jason and the Argonauts.
Back in the 80s and 90s, one of Microsoft's dirty little secrets was that they were using IBM Midrange computers to do their accounting, because nothing that ran on a Microsoft OS could scale up to handle it.
Forthan Red writes "It may be a pricing bot run amok, or a ridiculously over-inflated sense of worth, but Best Buy has been offering an HDMI cable for a whopping $1,095.99 (currently sold out!). While Best Buy seems to be oblivious to the absurdity of this price for a digital cable, those posting customer reviews are not. Enjoy the mockery!"

Yes, I'm sure that will happen, right after all our cities are redesigned to take advantage of the revolutionary Segway.
After explaining how this increased competition, AT&T went on to explain that up is down, white is black, and "The Last Airbender" was an excellent film.
It's 103F outside. Good luck with that whole thermal detection thing. (And I always touch all three buttons in a row at once, but only press down one, and will touch random rows without pressing any, just in case there's a camera nearby.)
Switch from Verison to Sprint several years ago. I get unthrottled, uncapped, unlimited data access for $15 extra, and I can tether my laptop when I'm traveling.
I'm guessing that there probably wasn't a whole lot of acrylic around during the evolutionary period when fingerprints developed.
