Civil disobedience, in the form of marches, rallies, pickets, protests, sit-ins, vigils, or demonstrations, is a necessary component of a functional, free democracy. Although potentially not pleasant, civil disobedience is often required when other attempts to invoke societal change fail.

They broke laws in 13 states and 93 counties, reaching speeds of 160 mph, on a 2,683-mile trip from New York to Los Angeles. The jaunt should realistically take over 41 hours – they did in under 29 driving an innocuous looking Mercedes that was decked out with more gear than a Oklahoma stormchaser’s rig.

For the main story line, Gibson created 88 final cars, each […]

This cocktail guide was created by an engineer for the US Forest Service in 1974 (I’m not sure why that agency would create such an elaborate document about mixed drinks). It features various drink recipes, in a single printable page, drawn in (and to) engineer-like specifications. It’s surprisingly useful.
