So, I've decided to treat myself with a thematic movie for each day of my comps. Today's questions were on arctic biogeochemistry and so I picked Hugh Jackman's new film Real Steel.
I forgot that nitrite was an intermediary in denitrification but I bet some boxing robots will make me feel better.
On my way to the neighborhood Redbox I saw some rollerblade tracks in the snow.
I just Googled "rollerblade tracks in the snow" and found this new invention by Scott Olson (best known for inventing rollerblades):
Check out his website, and make sure to hit play on the video for the full effect: Skyride
I'm laughing, but it is actually pretty cool. Here's a news report on some of the applications. I like how Scott makes sure to point out the rollerblade connection. Apparently they're thinking of installing one of these in Abu Dhabi's new capital and in the Denver airport.
