Really good.




Yay for Butte, Montana! Beautiful picture of the Berkeley pit. And after the Anaconda mining company messed up the whole town and surrounding area, they left this as a present for the people of Butte:



Our Lady of the Rockies sits right on the Continental Divide, is lit at night and clearly visible from town and from the Interstate.

I love the material, I sometimes had the presentation.  Its like a lot of NPR shows for me.  I can say the same thing about Prairie Home Companion and Car Talk.  PHC, decent folk acts with annoying witless and hackneyed jokes.  CT, interesting when they answer questions, dumb as hell when they make,  "my brother is a bad ________" jokes.

Lost and found was awesome http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab/index.xml


I was particularly intrigued by border cells and the folks that oriented with a virtual birds eye view. When I dead reckon it's in first person. Wonder how you would go about developing a birds eye concept in your brain?

Yeah, I was ...intrigued by that episode.
 ??? ??? ???
How the hell do you dead reckon in first person?
Seriously. That's just bloody weird...when I go from A to be B it's always using a birds eye view.
If you do this by first person views wouldn't you need to have all these images/memories of what places look like from ground level?
Or a list of places to go past or something?

Upon reading more about dead reckoning, I suppose I do that in a birds eye view, or rather don't do that. But I orient in a known area in the first person.

The symetry show was awesome. And Lincoln is clearly a zombie.
