How does the fact that Korean propaganda insulted Omaba and Kerry prove that the Ghost of Abe Lincoln had nothing to do with this letter?

... and that explains why they probably chose this design: the slope is too steep, which would've resulted in very high steps.

There are two things to consider here. One is that many representations of female bodies in pop culture are indeed unrealistic. That's true, and I agree it could be demoralizing for young women. However, on the other hand, taking female figures who are meant to be exceptional and reducing them to the "average American body shape" is just plain silly.

A couple of examples. Lara Croft? Yeah, go ahead and work that out into a believable person who can move without breaking in two pieces. But the Bikini Girl in GTA is already believable – not average, mind you, but believable. So what's the point of reducing that to average?

That's a really neat observation, and it works in other scenarios as well (I checked with a circle inside another circle twice its size, and the logic still holds), but I don't get why it works.

The rolling of the coin around itself is the same in both scenarios – we just have to account for the difference. When the coin travels a distance equal to its circumference, it rolls for a complete turn; when it travels a distance equal to half its circumference, it rolls half a turn.

Now let's disregard the rolling and see where the difference comes from. Assume the moving coin is not free standing; instead, it's stuck to a stick, like a lollipop, in such a way that it can't roll around itself. Assume the stick's protruding length is equal to the coin's radius. In the first scenario, we position the end of the stick in the center of the second coin, and we rotate it half a turn. In the second scenario, we just translate it horizontally for whatever distance we want. We notice that in the first scenario, the coin ends up upside down, whereas in the second scenario it doesn't rotate at all. So in the first scenario we gain half a turn simply by going around the second coin for half a turn, as compared to the second scenario where the coin doesn't rotate at all.

I know it looks like a long explanation, but if you can visualize it then it's really easy to follow.

Amazing coincidence I noticed: each and every one of the costumes selected for their cleverness happen to be worn by hot chicks.

Me again – I just received confirmation that the original order was shipped, so I take that part back.

(1) A few days ago I tried paying using PayPal and it didn't work. I sent feedback and I didn't receive any answer.

(2) I payed using a credit card and I haven't received any follow-up message regarding the order after the initial confirmation. That was three days ago, and I have no idea if the order was shipped.

(3) After placing that order I was invited to associate my Neatoshop account with the Neatorama account, which I promptly did. All messages showed that the process was successful, and now I can log in Neatoshop using this account – but my address wasn't saved, and I can't see that order in my order history on Neatoshop.

(4) Today I wanted to place another order for a t-shirt (international order), and I'm asked to pay the usual shipping fee.

That's four issues for two orders (the latter of which I haven't even placed, because the promotion doesn't work.) Neatorama, get your act together!

It's always nice to see how the Internet liberates content – it's now ok to just copy everything (all relevant images and all text) from any website. That is a good thing for most people in the world, because it facilitates disseminating information across the web with no concern for intellectual rights. Of course, the content creators aren't happy about this, but they're in an obvious minority – and we know from Spock that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

They also used headrests at some point simply because the exposure times were really long, and people tend to make micro-movements with their heads involuntarily. So the fact that you can see some sort of support (like in the last picture) is by no means definite proof that you're looking at a dead person. At least not at the time the photo was taken.

Please read the comments on YouTube – this is in no way unique to Japan. Most of Europe, plus several other nearby countries uses the same conventions; in the Americas I understand professional drivers also use these signals on a regular basis.

This is useless if you leave the oxygen in the bag. Virtually all sealed packages these days only contain nitrogen – they seal the bags so they can keep the oxygen out, and once you open then you let the cat out of the box... or to be more precise, you let the cat inside the box.
