I really, really enjoy ‘Game of Thrones’. I really, really, enjoy ‘Silicon Valley’. But I’ll say this, it’s so hard watching one right after the other on HBO, they are so totally different.

Here’s the simple reason planes have winglets – Winglets allow the wings to be more efficient at creating lift, which means planes require less power from the engines. That results in greater fuel economy, lower CO2 emissions, and lower costs for airlines. An airline that installs winglets on its fleet of 58 Boeing 767 jets is expected to save 500,000 gallons of fuel annually.
The Draw of Death Row – With “dark tourism” on the rise, Huntsville’s prison museum is thriving. – I was quite impressed with the bouquet of flowers made by toilet paper.
