Because of libration, we can, over time, see more than 50% of the moon from Earth. But billions of years from now, not only will the moon still be locked with the Earth, but the Earth will be locked with the moon. By then it will have been engulfed by the sun, anyway.

The CR-V has better MPG than most cars? From Wikipedia: "Consumer Reports rates fuel economy as 19 mpg-US (12 L/100 km; 23 mpg-imp) city, 29 mpg-US (8.1 L/100 km; 35 mpg-imp) highway." That sounds pretty crappy.

Also, it seems the CR-V is a "crossover" aka "crossover SUV" which means it looks like an SUV, but it's built on a car chassis, not a light truck chassis.

PS2 the Most Played Console In 2008 172

An anonymous reader writes "In terms of console usage, the aging PS2 still leads the competition, according to data from US research firm Nielsen. Data the company compiled between January and October 2008 shows that the PS2 commanded 31.7 percent of the total number of minutes spent playing consoles. Only 37.9 percent of play time took place on current-gen systems, with the Xbox 360 (17.2 percent) leading the Wii (13.4 percent) and the PS3 (7.3 percent). Users even spent more time playing on the original Xbox (9.7 percent) than the PS3, while Nintendo's GameCube (4.6 percent) wasn't far behind Sony's new console either." World of Warcraft once again topped the most-played PC game list by a large margin. Tetris was the top mobile game, followed by Bejeweled and Guitar Hero III.

Wouldn't moving your own body be a red herring, since sounds emanating from you travel through your own body, and hunching your shoulders might also change the shape of your diaphragm. Wouldn't a better test be to move an object near you and see if that changes the sound of your breathing?
