If you are going to the U2 concert at the end of May, come say hi to the FamilyGeeding.
I hardly buy tickets for anything, but I thought Ticketmaster did a great job with the process. The concert page had a countdown clock and when it hit zero, the page refreshed and allowed me to buy tickets using my U2 fan club early purchase code.
But I’m not a fan of their fees, which I think should be included in the price. I bought four $100 tickets but the total cost was $469.16.
Like I said, I rarely buy tickets so this whole process is a bit foreign to me, but I was surprised they wouldn’t mail the tickets, provide something printable, or allow the use of a mobile device. Instead, all you need to provide is the credit card you used to purchase them and a photo ID, which makes me wonder if the line at the gate will be slower than all get out.
I thought the kids wouldn’t really have much of a reaction when I told them I was going to take them to see Bono (how they basically refer to U2) but I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t like a “I’m going to Disney World” freak out, but DaughterGeeding slowly dropped her jaw in disbelief, in a good way.
I actually believe Trump when he says he’s a germaphobe, it’s been well known for a while he has that phobia.
About a decade ago when ‘The Apprentice’ was in its first two seasons and I was a fan, he stated in an interview how the Japanese “got it right” with the bow as a greeting, that he doesn’t like to shake hands because of the spreading of germs. That stuck in my mind because I’m fascinated with all things Howard Hughes and it made me start to compare the two.
Very few women, perhaps only eight-percent of one-percent, can successfully pull off blunt bangs or whatever they are technically called. Zooey Deschanel is the frontrunner on this.
The shuttle is a small 12-person vehicle known as Arma, similar in appearance to Google’s original driverless car prototype, and it’s developed by a French company called Navya. The shuttle will offer free rides from 10AM to 6PM down Fremont Street between Las Vegas Boulevard and Eighth Street. While the car is capable of driving itself at up to 27 mph, the trial period will cap the vehicles’ top speed at 12 mph.
Here’s how speed limits are established in most states, according to Federal Highway Administration research: Traffic engineers conduct a study to measure the average speed motor vehicles move along a road. The speed limit is then set at the 85th percentile. From then on, 85 percent of drivers would be traveling under the speed limit and 15 percent would be breaking the law. Sometimes other factors2 are taken into consideration, but in most places, speed limits are largely determined by the speed most people feel safe traveling.
At about the 2:15 mark of the video, the drone begins accelerating toward the very top of the Needle where several pyro technicians were working 575 feet above the ground. The drone crashes hard into the Needle and footage continues to roll as startled workers gather around it.
But I like the geeky humor – “It looks like the drone tractor beam we installed on the Space Needle is working,” Ron Sevart, Space Needle CEO and president, joked in a statement. “
