only 3 seconds long, but you don't see a giant sequoia drop on video every day - too bad this doesn't even get to the ground impact

I found a little better version of that video here. Good article and other pictures, too. Actually, it was two trees falling side-by-side. I'm wondering if the process of their growing together also caused them to snap each other's supporting roots to the point they collapsed.

for all you ski bums who keep saying there isn't enough snow or you have to go to the distant resort to find a good run, just check out what your neighborhood has to offer.

As a science undergrad, my prof recommended I study Russian so that I could read the original scientific papers.

Now the USA has no manned space lifting capacity & must rely on the Russians - whose launch is run in English, in a capsule captained by an American astronaut.

I'm confused!

And did you notice that Curiosity was powered by a Russian motor?

She hasn't seen it yet, Joe - she's too busy ooohing and aaahing over YouTube videos of Alex Honnold. If I hear "He's cute!" one more time, I'm going to scream. My daughter's fixated on the best climber in the world over his looks . . .

I've seen photos of a man that fell down an elevator shaft. Not pretty for sure.
