Question by Gunner Criswell: Do they have robotics at Grandbay Middle school?
I live in Grandbay, Alabama. I have been looking forward to going to middle school and taking robotics, can you tell me if they have robotics in Grandbay Middle School?
Answer by paulfriedman7
Not as far as I can tell, but they have computers in the media center.

Seen here looking suspiciously like a pink ‘Scream’ mask,
GW GM now has front center airbags that, in the event of a t-boning, are supposed to prevent you from bashing skulls with whoever’s riding shotgun. Which, at least in my case, would be Jesus. Get it? Because he’s my co-pilot. Plus I let him steer sometimes while I nap. He’s..pretty bad. I’m not convinced he even has a license.
GM is introducing a new type of airbag in some of its midsize SUVs for 2013 that’s designed to keep you safe in accidents like these by deploying out from the front seats into the center of the car…The cushion provides restraint to keep your head from ending up in the passenger seat while the rest of your body stays securely belted into the driver’s seat. It’s taken GM three years of research to get it to work, and it should also make a difference in rollovers — which don’t happen so often, yet carry a high mortality rate.
Not gonna lie, I thought these already existed. Of course, my car has roll-up windows, so I’m a little behind on new car technology. Did you hear they’re even working on making vehicles that run on electricity? LOL — that’ll be the day!
Thanks to santa and Michael, who agree the safest way to survive a crash is to blow up whatever you were about to hit with little missiles that come out of the hood.
HP’s tablet ship may have sailed, but at least you can still count on the outfit for your next reverse Polish notation calculator. That’s right, HP’s 12c just hit the big three-oh. The classic calculator is celebrating its
mid life crisis 30th year in production with a special limited edition number cruncher, featuring an etched faceplate declaring its pedigree. If 1981′s coolest calculator isn’t your style, don’t fret — HP is also releasing a limited edition run of 1982′s HP 15c, boasting a hundred-fold improvement in performance over its predecessor. Retro calculation can be yours for $ 80 and $ 100, respectively. Hit the break to see HP toot its own horn in the 12c’s official 30th anniversary “Then & Now” video.
Microsoft rejects the idea of a “post-PC” era of technology.
The company is labelling the current era as the “PC Plus” realm where PCs are surrounded by new devices designed for a specific niche purpose. The software giant’s chief of communications, Frank Shaw, revealed the company’s feelings in a blog post on Friday. “I’ve seen a resurgence of the term “post” applied to the PC in a number of stories including The Wall Street Journal, PC World and the Washington Post,” said Shaw. He proceeds to explain that it’s human nature for people to like simple and straightforward “something is a foo-’killer’ stories.” Shaw explains things aren’t that clear cut and simple in the technology world. “eReaders, Tablets, Smartphones, Set top boxes, aren’t PC killers,” states Shaw. “But instead are complementary devices. They are each highly optimized to do a great job on a subset of things any PC can also do.”
Shaw argues that PCs do certain tasks in a unique way and “aren’t going away” as they change rapidly to do the same things that companion devices (like eReaders and Tablets etc) do.
“I’ll be the first to admit that these new “non-PC” objects do a great job at enabling people to communicate and consume in innovative and interesting ways. That’s not surprising, because they were expressly designed for that purpose. But even their most ardent admirers will not assert that they are as good as PCs at the first two verbs, create and collaborate. And that’s why one should take any reports of the death of the PC with a rather large grain of salt. Because creating and collaborating are two of the most basic human drives, and are central to the idea of the PC. They move our culture, economy and world forward. You see their fingerprints in every laboratory, startup, classroom, and community.”
Shaw rounds up his thoughts by promising a range of powerful devices that will connect to cloud services and make it easier to create, communicate, collaborate and consume information. “So while it’s fun for the digerati to pronounce things dead, and declare we’re post-PC, we think it’s far more accurate to say that the 30-year-old PC isn’t even middle aged yet, and about to take up snowboarding.”
Microsoft slams post-PC idea, claims “PC isn’t even middle aged yet” originally appeared at WinRumors.com.
YOOOOOOOU SHALLNOT PASS!
Want to watch a 45-minute guided tour of the Middle Earth a bunch of guys recreated in Minecraft? You already cancelled your Netflix subscription didn’t you? I don’t blame you. For busting ass in the elevator, yes. Plus I will never forgive. Or forget. What were we just talking about? “That time you busted ass in the elevator.” Haha, I did do that, didn’t I? Good times.
Hit the jump for the massive MASSIVE MASSIVE Middle Earth but damn is 45-minutes of those guys talking hard to bear (I skipped around for maybe five, tops).
Note: Uncensored pictures after the jump cannot be unseen.
I wasn’t going to post this because 1. I eat a lot of sushi and 2. it’s f***ing disgusting and is gonna give me nightmares FO SHO, but I’m getting the tip so much I figured I might as well. Standards: mine are incredibly low. So yeah, a shark with a single eye in the middle of its head. What’s your take, Indy? “It belongs in a freakshow museum!”
According to the Pisces Fleet Sportsfishing blog, this one-eyed bull shark fetus was removed from a mother caught in Mexico’s Sea of Cortez. Apparently shark researcher Felipe Galvan Magaña is now examining this monocular specimen.
I’m not sure what shark researcher Felipe Galvan Magana is going to find out, but my guess is that the X-Men’s Cyclops has a mermaid fetish and recently chartered a boat.
Hit the jump for two uncensored shots that shouldn’t be viewed before, during or after eating.
There are no surer signs of the apocalyptic onset of middle age than a preoccupation with puzzle-solving and an unhealthy interest in adverts and barcodes. And those just happen to be the three new features Google has added to version 1.3 of its Goggles software. The visual search application for Android is now intelligent enough to decipher tricky Sudoku puzzles (and thereby suck all the fun out of them), while its algorithms have also been tweaked to make barcode scanning “almost” instant. Popular printed ads will be recognized as well, taking you to a Google search on the relevant topic. US newspapers and magazines from August 2010 are being supported for now, but we can’t imagine the rest of the world should have to wait too long for this added convenience. Video of the new Goggles’ Sudoku skills after the break.

Gavin sat in the drivers side of his brand new lexis, he wanted so bad to cry but held it all back, Gavin Wills was one of the best dancers at Tantle High, girls always tried to get his number but what they didn’t know was the only person he ever wanted to give his number to was the Alex Tanner the best on Tantle’s basketball team, Gavin had brown hair and green eyes but they were always shaded by his glasses. Kristen tapped at his window, “I think she’s dead” said Kristen her face was pale like she’d seen a ghost, Kristen Wills Gavin’s sister was the most popular girl in Elementary school through Middle but as Freshman year crept in Marcy Keppler became the queen bee and Kristen became last in line, Kristen had red straight hair and the greenest eyes anyone has ever seen, she and Gavin had the perfect lives until tonight, Gavin and Kristen were coming back from the movies when they decided to take a different route
a different route which turned into a horrific nightmare, they hit someone. but only Kristen had enough courage to go see who exactly they had impaled into the ground, Kristen walked over, silence was over they’re heads only the dirt road crunching under Kristens shoes was all she could hear. The body of a girl layed before them, Gavin stayed in the drivers side of his new lexis, he didn’t want to look up, kristen bent down and took out her cell phone, which gave enough light to examine who was covered in darkness, dirt and blood, It was Marcy Keppler she was dead. Kristen walked back over to the car swerving to the side, feeling sick she’d never seen a dead body before especially of the girl she most hated, the bitch who took her crown, the slut who stole her boyfriend 3 times. Kristen tapped on Gavins window “I think she’s dead” she said as Gavin opened his door and stepped out into the road, “Are you sure?” asked Gavin holding his stomache he also felt sick, the moon shown brighter and he could see Marcy perfectly, her body twisted and covered in blood “What are we gonna do?” asked Kristen begining to cry, “Call the police, It was an accident” said Gavin, Kristen quickly looked up at Gavin “No we can’t call the police, I called her phone last night and told her she would be dead if I caught her with Trevor again, They will think it was us I know it!” said Kristen, Gavin looked at his sister crying as he had never seen her, “was it her cell phone?” Kristen stopped crying “Yeah and..?” Gavin walked over to Marcy “what are you gonna do?” asked Kristen “I’m gonna throw her cell phone away, they wont find it they wont think it was us even though it really wasn’t” said Gavin reaching into both of her jean pockets, he pulled out her cell phone and walked back over to Kristen “There now you call the police”. Kristen dialed 911.
“They said it was an accident, she ran out into the middle of the road” said Ms. Wills Gavin and Kristens Mother, “Your Father said you can’t have your car back until you turn 18 honey I’m sorry” Gavin looked at Kristen “It’s okay, I’m alright” said Gavin “Mom can you tell them not to say we were involved, we wont be able to go to school right, people will make it look like we did it cuz of me and Marcy not being such good friends” Kristen sat back, she remembered Gavin had Marcy’s phone, “Ok I will, let’s just get home then ok”, Gavin just then wondered why Marcy Keppler would be anywhere near Redgrove road by herself, where was her car or her purse?. “Mom did they find her car?” asked Gavin, “Nope we didn’t find a thing not even a cell phone” said Officer Clark as he placed his hand on Gavins shoulder “Then what was she doing out there alone?” asked Gavin, Officer Clakr thought for a moment “You got a point there kid, I’m gonna get my team to look this up” he said as he patted Gavin on the back and walked away.
Kristen drove Gavins car home and parked it in the garage, “Where is the phone?” whispered Kristen as Their Mother walked inside the house. “I’ll get it” said Gavin opening the passenger side and shoving his hand under the seat, he pulled out Marcy’s cell phone, “Close the door and let’s get inside”. Gavin and Kristen sat at the back porch table with Marcy’s phone in the middle, “It just doesn’t seem right” said Gavin looking at Kristen “What doesn’t seem right?” Kristen asked she stared at the phone as if it was going to ring any second. “That she was up there alone, she had to had been with someone if her car wasn’t there, and she was running” explained Gavin “What are you saying that she was running f
