ripples!

Whoah. If your day includes watching people getting punched in the face at 1000 frames per second, then you won't need to watch this video of people getting punched in the face at 1000 frames per second. Via the slinky kottke.

I have so many stories about me and Jason Kottke, and they all involve me enjoying his weblog and him having no idea who I am.

It is extraordinary how plastic the face, its skeletal frame and musculature, is. I had my jaw broken in a punch up when a teenager - I would like to see that at a 1000 fps. (Obviously my jaw was made of sterner, less pliable stuff. But then I am a Brit, reputed the world over for our stiff upper lips.)

I don't think so----besides I wouldn't like the movie either most probabely---but hey, thanks for the offer.

Man, if John McCain agreed to do this I'd totally vote for him.

I'll bet those are great stories!

I enjoy a great many things, with the other person having no idea who I am.

Marriage, for starters.

dot - Apparently the stiff upper lip thing was so pronounced among the British upper class at one time that they were incomprehensible to people from other classes.

gary - Anytime. My offers, like so much on the internet, are always free.

chris - I wouldn't want to be the guy who punched McCain in the face, though. There'd be a lot of spluttering, a lot of threats to get off his property, and so forth. On the other hand, if the debates were actually about who could take the most punches to the face, I'd watch that.

ozma - Oh yeah. One day we'll meet, I'll light a fire, and we'll swap stories about me and Kottke.

dmbaron - It's possible to have a rich, fulfilling relationship with someone without them ever knowing who you are. For best results, conduct your relationship at night, and wear warm dark clothes.
