Survivor Heroes Vs Villains Jumping Ship S20E11 (CBS)

This is the night after tribal council. Russ is pissed that Parv and Danielle are in cahoots. They didn’t tell him about the plan. Rupert and Amanda talk. They want to bring Sandra over to their side.

Gorgeous Apple Home Office Configurations From Istanbul

When we first noticed these workstations, we were pretty surprised at how much tech was displayed. What’s even more surprising was that they all belong to the same person, a dentist from Istanbul, and she enjoys going through different configurations in order to set up the perfect home office.

The Budget Weight Weenie

Velocite Geos prototype frame

I’ll be receiving a Velocite Geos prototype frame at the end of May. I’ve decided to build it up with Shimano Dura Ace Di2. Here is what my preliminary build list looks like. Since this is a budget weenie and I’m also sourcing parts from the second hand market, I’ve decided for a bunch of reasons to stay away from high-priced German carbon fiber parts. This is a “best bang for the buck” type of build. Ideally, it should have been built up with SRAM Red, since that is the lightest gruppo, but I decided to go with Di2. I’ve been itching to try it out.

Polaroid 300 Costs 90 Bucks + $10 For 10 Shots- Meh, I Like My Digital

The new (old) Polaroid camera, the Polaroid 300, is about to be released in May. That’s great news, because I always liked the instant photos that Polaroids took. However, there’s some bad news: it costs $90 (USD). On top of that, you’ll have to pay $10 for just 10 shots.

Velocite Geos 57cm Size Frame Weighs 877g

Velocite Geos prototype

Just saw that the new Velocite Geos frame weighs 877g in size L. Victor anticipates that the S size will weigh 790g. That’s pretty cool! The prototype frames come in a high gloss finish, necessitating more paint coats, so it can easily shed some weight if it’s got a raw finish instead with clearcoat.

Life Size Bender Will Bend Your Socks Off!

One of the best things in Futurama was Bender. Sure, the professor was cool, but Bender just had that certain appeal, especially with his robotic drinking and smoking ways.
