Bits & Snatches Quickie: Short Names, Bro App, Spider Face Edition (Audio)

In this Bits & Snatches Quickie I will regale you with information on a new study that claims we don't trust people with long names, an app that perpetuates the 'all guys is so dumb and uncaring' stereotype and a really stupid way to deal with arachnophobia involving ink and a guy's face.

Don't forget to subscribe to my full length podcast in Stitcher and/or iTunes and throw me a rating. A good one, preferably. Buddy.

Knitting Whilst Running Vs A Space Jump(Video)

So, I think in theory, those Go Pro helmet cams are very cool. The cameras are cool. The tedious nonsense people record with them is in most cases not at all cool. Case in point: you, walking to the bus stop, getting on the bus, riding the bus, then getting off the bus is NOT cool video. Don't film that. Stop it. How much time do you think we all have? And how dare you think that the time we DO have should be used watching your commute.

How dare you.

I've posted two videos here that exhibit my point perfectly. In the first clip, a guy knits while he runs. NO. I'm not kidding. He knits and runs. In the process of this Herculean, totally helmet cam worthy feat, he also breaks a world record....for being the least cool man of ALL time. All. Time. In the second video Felix Baumgartner jumped out of a spaceship. He jumped out of a space ship. To be fair, he was not knitting. Lame.

To wrap all this up: knitting will never be cool but scarves and mittens are and jumping out of a spaceship will always make for better video than a POV clip of some dude eating cereal.

Check back later because I'll be uploading POV video of me writing this post. In your face, Felix Baumgartner.

Space Lassos!

Here is the link to the full story I discussed on today's Science Corner. If you're not able to hear my show, I will post audio of the segment in my weekly Bits & Snatches Podcast.

In short, NASA is planning to turn the moon into our interstellar junkyard via space age tow trucks! Take our junk, the moon.
