HAMSTERDAM CELEBRATES THE RETURN OF TED LASSO

610

Hooray for Ted Lasso! Here's your new thread for off-topic chit-chat. Plenty of preseason NFL games today and tomorrow. Oh, and baseball. The usual rules apply.

HAMSTERDAM IS PRETTY SURE IT HAD THOSE NUMBERS WRONG FOR A LONG TIME

655

On with the Richter scale, an increase of one step on this logarithmic scale corresponds to a 10^1.5 ≈ 32 times increase in the amount of energy released, and an increase of two steps corresponds to a 10^3= 1000 times increase in energy. So a 7.0 is 32x the destructive power of a 6.0 and 1000x the power of a 5.0. And I'd always thought I'd heard it was 10x (exponent 1 instead of 1.5) as powerful for each step, a number that is off by magnitudes with each extra step.

HAMSTERDAM IS PROJECTING ONTO YOUR WINDSHIELD

Or it could be if Navdy were terrible people that wanted to distract you while driving. As The Verge points out, Navdy is making a tiny projecter to place on your dash to allow your old ass car to have the cool nav features of new cars. I'm pretty excited about the idea, now I just need to convince the wife that I need $500.

HAMSTERDAM IS WEARING ITS SUNDAY BEST

(via) The first preseason NFL game of the year is tonight (Bills v. Giants in the Hall of Fame Game), and while preseason football is a poor substitute for the real thing, it is an excellent reminder that real football is right around the corner. The usual rules apply.

HAMSTERDAM KNOWS RIGHT FROM WRONG

635

Well-liked commenter Hawkeye Hodor (née SMKS) has started a Google Doc to compile things that Extremely-well-liked commenter therealCatnuts is wrong about. And as it currently stands, the write-in category of things Catnuts is correct about now leads the "wrong about" category by a count of 7-5. Hilarious.

HAMSTERDAM IS SENDING MEMOS

HAMSTERDAM IS SENDING MEMOS

The Verge COMCAST is not real thrilled with the 8-minute disaster call that went viral a week or so ago, but they are probably even less thrilled that these memos keep leaking.

HAMSTERDAM THROWS HARD

There are a lot of reasons that humans are different from the other great apes, reasons that we have come to dominate the planet. But among my favorites is this fact: my son that turned 3 just yesterday throws a baseball harder than any of our ape relatives. A full grown chimp, all 90 pounds of muscle and fury, can't top 20mph on the speed gun. Gorillas do even worse. http://cashp.columbian.gwu.edu/neil-t-roach-evolution-throwing

HAMSTERDAM IS A NINJA WEATHERMAN

758

Last week's lady ninja was mighty impressive, but this break-an-obstacle-and-keep-going-anwyay move from Joe Moravsky was silly. I'm pretty sure I could manage the first part, but I'm not real confident in the second half of that stunt.
