The article embedded a short video. Here's longer video with explanations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ88ny09ruM

Looks good! How about a high-visibility version in bright yellow and large reflective surfaces?

Why did you choose the Fallbrook N360 over the Shimano Nexus Inter 8 which is cheaper and 2 lbs lighter?


Seattle has a small startup community and its own startup lawfirm: http://www.sophoslaw.com/ . Maybe you could learn something from them?


I wish they provided one of the original source photos.


A large portion of Americans are too selfish to pay extra tax to support the poor. They don't realize that their selfishness hurts everyone, including themselves: http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_wilkinson


Do you wear a long-sleeve shirt? I used to have this problem when I wore t-shirts and worked in an air-conditioned office. Now I wear a long-sleeve button-down shirt with an undershirt and I feel much more comfortable every day.


In my experience, all of these are great except the last one. I used to rest my wrists and now I can't because my RSI progressed. I wish someone had told me 10 years ago to keep my wrists straight when I type.

I use an angled keyboard and a vertical mouse to reduce twisting.


Thanks for sharing your story. I work as a software engineer and have struggled with mild RSI for many years. I cannot use a flat keyboard or touchpad like you have in your video. What works for me:

- Goldtouch GTU-0088 V2 Keyboard.

- Evoluent VerticalMouse 4, raised up on a book to be the same height as the keyboard.

- Single monitor at proper height.

- Hourly breaks to walk around.

- Motorized sit/stand desk, alternating after every break.

- Mindfulness meditation practice, which helps me be more sensitive to my body.

- Sitting up straight more often.

Have you tried any of these? How did they work out for you? What worked better for you?


295 years at 4% yields 105,885 times the principal [1]. The income value of £1 in 1720 was equal to £2,271 in 2013 [2]. Therefore the investment yielded only 4,700% over 295 years.

You don't get the interest compounded though, this isn't a bank account, it's payment on a bond. You'd have to find other south sea bubble bond holders to sell you their bonds (which would only be done in whole units, you wouldn't be able to dribble in your 4% every year) to get the compound effect.

Basically you look at the interest paid over the whole issue yearly and linear sum it, not apply a compound interest calculation.


Thanks for explaining this.


Source data for that article is at http://www.washingtonpost.com/page/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/...

Select "Show results by: Race/Religion".


Thanks for that link. It seems to me that what that data says is: Americans are for torture, pretty much across the board. That's good to know...


The Ideology -- and to a lesser extent Party ID and Race -- breakdowns tell a different story.
