Things Rachael and I argue about This should have told me something... Rachael left my room about half an hour ago. She just came back crying, saying "I've been crying for half an hour and you don't even care!" and then she stormed off. What just happened? Dishes Rachael just came into my room and said, "I wish we had bowls to give to the dog instead of using clean ones and don't wash them and just leave them on the floor." The day we signed our lease It was raining outside, and Rachael decided to test me, like she likes to do. Rachael: Will you go get the umbrella for me? Privacy Bubble Rachael likes to ask questions that prod us into a fight. I closed my door a little while ago for privacy. I have a feeling that she knew my door was closed, so she yelped quietly in order to highlight the fact that I couldn't hear her if my door is closed. "Why was your door closed?" Bathroom door Rachael: Why did you lock the bathroom door? Society For instance, the second night in the new apartment, rachael says.... Rachael on reading

Watch: The First Hour Of MTV For those watching in 1981, the launch of MTV must have seemed as epic as the rocket-ship visual it used as an opener. For those who don't remember (or didn't exist yet), the iconic moonman's first appearance was juxtaposed with footage of Apollo 11 taking off in the channels first minutes. Although the implications were massive (an entire channel dedicated to music??) and the first video to ever air (our favorite Trivial Pursuit questions: "Video Killed The Radio Star") seemed an ambitious mission statement, MTV did nail something unmistakably cool with its initial aesthetics and promises of all-day, all-night stereo music. Cool story, MTV. Although the nostalgia is overwhelming, it does make one wonder why a network so far off of its own proclaimed ideology is celebrating the birth of something it would later kill off. Check out the first hour of broadcasting, including some delightfully retro commercials.

A Rollercoaster Designed to Kill Humanely It’s a ride definitely not for the faint-hearted—a PhD candidate in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art has designed a hypothetical rollercoaster meant to kill. Julijonas Urbonas created his coaster as a hypothetical euthanasia machine; it will, he claims, take lives as humanely and euphorically as possible. “Riding the coaster’s track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness and, eventually, death,” he wrote on his website. The 500-meter structure is designed to kill its rider from cerebral hypoxia, or a lack of oxygen supply to the brain. Urbonas said he was inspired to create the rollercoaster by a quote from John Allen, former president of the Philadelphia Toboggan Company: “The ultimate rollercoaster is built when you send out 24 people and they all come back dead.
