Zip lining

Went zip lining with a bunch of friends for Martine's birthday.  Great way to spend a few hours!

End of an Era...

I've recently started to discover the awesomeness of space geekdom by viewing old episodes of Carl Sagan's Cosmos television series.  To the point where I am developing an obsessive fascination for it.  Too bad it comes at the end of the manned space mission era.

I just finished watching Reid Gower's latest installment of The Sagan Series. So awesome to be hearing Sagan's voice narrating and commenting on this milestone of human development...

Hardcore History: Death Throes of the Republic

I just finished listening to the last podcast in Dan Carlin's series titled the Death Throes of the Republic on his Hardcore History show.  Really well executed and fascinating to listen to.  Dan's got a way of making over 12 hours of ancient Rome history fly by.  I even managed to consume the last podcast (nearly 5:30 long) in a two to three day period.  I highly recommend the series to anyone who is even remotely curious about ancient Roman history.
