Defog your windshield faster with science!

Here we have a former NASA engineer who explains the optimal technique for defogging the windows in your car, as well as how and why it works. It's probably less effective than my technique of not breathing at all, but some people may have a longer morning commute than I do.

The Daily Word in why the hell there was fog, our sci-fi future, and Bill Cosby

The Daily Word

A case is reopened against Bill Cosby just before the 12-year statute of limitation deadline.

Stay warm, stay safe. This winter is deadly.

How this year brought us closer to our ideal sci-fi future.

The rather creepy mystery of lights in an abandoned New Orleans hospital is solved.

The sucky science discoveries of 2015.

If you saw fog last night, you're probably as confused as I was. Here's an explanation.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #342: The Long Boat Returns From Battle Deserted

I am led inside a darkened long boat to look at a car for sale. It is a 3/4 size 1930s sedan with a sleeping compartment in the rear—all black and chrome. The guy wants $100 or $200K. The car is also amphibious, owing to its large, grey running boards. The guy will demonstrate, but the fog on the beach is still too heavy.

"They're not letting anyone in yet." Soon, everyone leaves for the battle.

Jack Sparrow explains: "I actually try not to kill too many people, and trust God to keep me safe." I tarry, looking for my gloves.

I start to run up the river bank, realizing I am late. I picture myself helping with the wounded and the ammo on the long boat, as I have done before. But the long boat has already returned, nearly deserted.

I climb aboard and hear the cries: "They sucked our blood everywhere!"

I now hear war whoops, like coyotes, from up the river. N, dressed in black, walks somberly past me.

"Scairdy?" she asks, then quotes: "'Even his little will be taken away from him.'"
