That was way too exciting.

As counterpoint, 45 minutes of Nick Offerman drinking Whisky by a fireplace.

BBC interview goes slightly wrong.

A big problem in Sydney, Australia, turned into an Attenborough-style "documentary".

I don't know what that is but it looks important.

I was more amused by the one I saw this weekend where the jackass blew out his catalytic then kept revving until the car caught fire and burned.

Continuing the earlier theme of things going wrong for the BBC

I love how things just go wrong and get compounded: they lovingly focus on a tv gardener from the north-east of Scotland, closing in on her face as they accuse her of war crimes; they lose sound to the presenter; they try to go to the weather and display their true, fascist sympathies; the video tech, by this point, has given up and starts just stabbing at buttons, godwinning himself wildly.

The future is now:

The Lilium Jet – The world's first all-electric VTOL jet


Video shows the first flight of the prototype. Claimed range of 300 km, top speed 300 km/h. I am impressed!

Drone video from this month in Norway, showing road clearing from snow. Picture is the link to the video:





And that's how we do it in Austria. Clearing of the Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße (Grossglockner High Alpine Road). Again, picture leads to video:





Oh and that's how it was done in the 1930'ies:

It's pretty amazing that it's worth the massive complexity and cost of making it movable under its own power like that, as opposed to making it modular for easy moving piece-by-piece.  The sound is modified, by the way: the credits call the additional stuff ("modular ambiente" sound.  As a fan of Autechre and Future Sound of London, and a regular attendee of the Tectonics festival, I would very happily listen to that sort of soundscape at greater length.
