Mrs. 4444 (ICAO DOC 4444 is titled Air Traffic Management but I don’t think she has read it yet) has once again invited us to share Friday fragments.
I believe most events are random and it's our reaction to them that alters our path through life. I’m not trying to change your mind if you are more of the destiny type. That’s OK. I bring this up because this FF will be a collection of random items.
So if you are a drive-by clicker who has never been here before don’t judge the blog by this post.
Have you ever forgotten to remove your clothes before you step into the shower? I never had that problem and I suspect most don’t. But have you gone downstairs wearing less than you needed or go outside with less than the weather calls for? Many have had that experience. Is it logical to conclude taking clothes off is more natural than putting them on?
While on the subject of naked. This past week over on wired.com I read about a strange pinup calendar. I found it funny and was going to do a post about it but then decided not to. You see, the pictures are X-rays of X-rated pictures. Some medical device company created it as a marketing tool (sex and humor). Actually the pictures are not real X-rays but only a trained professional would know that right away. Besides the oddity of this idea, it’s funny to see killer stilettos in X-ray. Here’s the wired link.
As a service to my followers who drive Ferrari sport cars - drive over to your dealer now!
Ferrari is recalling its new 458 Italia model after several vehicles were reported to have burst into flames.
New meaning to hot sports car.
I like to get T-shirts from places I visit. Not everywhere but maybe an airshow or some national park I hiked in. Next time I’m in Salt Lake, Utah, I should pickup this t-shirt (you need to follow the link sorry I couldn’t get the picture) that has the abbreviation on the front.
I guess the post office accepts SL, UT as a valid abbreviation.

I think I should post more about science, physics, or space. You do know you can find my posts about those subject areas by clicking the appropriate tag.
I just read about new developments in slow light. You might remember that according to Einstein light travels the fastest speed allow by anything. It seems strange that there is an effort to slow it down. This one technique is called EIT (Electromagnetically induced transparency). That sounds cool and maybe I should add that to my resume. This slow light development could be used to produce switches and logic devices that do not covert the optic signals to electrical signals which has a number of benefits.
Hey you still there?
