So, feeling bored and the need for some cheering up last night, I stumbled upon this delightful web comic appears to be a strange (but enjoyable) mix of math, humor, and science. The added result of the three is xkcd.com.
Parkour (abbreviated PK) is a training method which focuses on rational movement in both the natural and urban environments. The focus is to move around obstacles with speed and efficiency. Developed in France by David Belle, the main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing and jumping. Parkour practitioners are known as traceurs. They train to be able to identify and utilize alternate, more efficient paths. Parkour can be practiced anywhere, but areas dense with obstacles offer many training opportunities. Oh, and it’s better with music.
Hey, I got off the phone with my sister a little while ago after a hour long talk about topics ranging from cinematography (the capture of motion pictures) all the way to science fiction.

2# What did you notice first?
3# Yeah, you…
4# some of the great minds have been on that chart!
5# Don’t worry, we have women too.
I think its safe to say that geek girls like the same things i do.
6# You’ve read any of these books for fun:
