Mental Floss

So I attended last night's get together and learned what a stepper motor is and helped Kam fix one that was jammed (good clean fun), but the highlight of the evening for my own personal self was when Ian Applegate showed up riding a bright green vintage Schwinn Sprint wearing an Evel Kneivel motorcycle helmet AND, under the helmet, Dominique Pinon wrap around shades (VR glasses) that were electronically broadcasting to his eyeballs what his handheld camera (in his hand at that very moment) was seeing. When Kam tried them on and mentioned how disorienting they were, Ian lightheartedly chuckled and replied, "imagine riding around on your bike with them on".


This utterly ridiculous use of technology is something we should all aspire to once and awhile and its also why I may vote for Ian in the next presidential election.
