Submission + - Urinal Dynamics: a tactical guide and summary. (

antdude writes: Boing Boing shared an over one minute YouTube video showing "Urinal Dynamics: a tactical summary — We illustrate the importance of good technique when using a urinal and offer some advice. Through high-speed video footage of a simulated male urine stream we show that reduced splash can be achieved by aiming at a vertical surface, moving closer to the urinal and by decreasing the impact angle."

Splash Lab has more videos and text details.

Cable is the only affordable broadband Internet service in my areas. No DSL (too far to CO) and FIOS from Verizon. Verzion and GTE's phone system sucks badly in my areas. On good connections, my neighbors and I get about 3 kB/sec with already compressed datas. We have lots of line noises (can see my modems to struggle with the external lights).

I wished Netflix had a non-subscription payment system. I rarely watch stuff these days. I like Amazon and iTunes for their on demand payments. However, I dislike buying videos that I have to keep forever. I only want to watch them once at a cheaper price!

What it's doing is essentially allowing you to look at a DLP chip through a series of special lenses, by making the DLP chip look like it's much larger than it really is and much further away via the optics. It's not beaming anything directly into the eye any more than the sun is "beaming" the light you see right now into your eye. It is, as another poster pointed out, much like looking into a microscope, or even looking at the world through corrective lenses.
