    Post Race Competitor!

    How can you have a race with just one entry? That's kind of silly. As such, the Post Race Competitor! thread is ready to surpass the Post Race thread. At this time, there is only 20,024 more posts to go and just 4,691,280 views. We should be there by Christmas.......

    or of which century.

    #6 is the smallest positive integer which is neither a square number nor a prime number and is also the smallest perfect number.

    I prefer it when there is more symetry... 8 is where it's all at... nice and round. Not asymmetrical like your..... 6... what's with that tail sticking out of its top? Does it think it's a pumpkin or something? Or is it just a drunk 9 that's fallen and can't get up?

    I had to think twice (2x) about it, but 8 seems more cubed than round to me.....

    I'd believe that if you thought about it thrice... unless you're thinking in the box... then perhaps...

    I went to the credit union yesterday. Their interest is decreasing due to the fed's cutting things.

    Their losing interest because of the Fed actions? Are they also losing interest in you?

    ouch. that hurts.....



    But to answer in my defense.....Fed actions causing interest to decrease.

    At least that's my assumption, and I'm sticking with it!

    Yeah, at this point, I would prefer that the Fed be a bit more interesting. Bond funds are just muddling along, at this point.

    It was fairly obvious quickly that it was a combination of motion capture and cgi, but is quite impressive none the less. The physics weren't quite right when it ran off with the "dog".
    Basically a spoof of the Boston Dynamic robotic development clips. Entertaining work.

    After the first situation where the robot is attacked from behind with a sock of quarters, you can see the robot's actor's shadow on the fenced barrier. It goes by quick, but this clip is still pretty good.
