I remember birthdays through math associations with my own (ex: (d+m+1)/((d+m)*d+1)). I'm awful at remembering birthdays and names but at least with names I either don't need to remember it or I get reminded daily so it sticks eventually. Maybe this is why I'm not married
though when they ask for I scream I'll gladly offer both flavours. (over 20 years on and still no takers ??? ???)
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
On Friday, February 14th, 2020: #Jetman Vince Reffet took off, headed south towards Jumeirah Beach Residence, building speed and height. In 8 seconds he had reached 100 meters height, in 12 seconds 200m, 19 seconds 500m, and reached 1000m in 30 seconds at an average speed of 130 knots. At the end of a 3-minute flight punctuated by a roll and a loop at 1800m altitude, Jetman Vince Reffet opened his parachute at 1500m before landing back at Skydive Dubai.
It is the first time that a #JetmanDubai pilot could combine hovering safely at a limited altitude and flying aerobatics at high altitude in the same flight.
Controlled from the ground by the human body, the equipment enables Jetman Dubai to reach speeds of 400kmh, as well as hovering, changing direction and performing loops.
"Controlled from the ground by the human body" ... so, who's controlling what when he's up in the air ?

I am glad they spend so much money on these types of technologies.
I dream of a future where one day I will no longer have to worry about getting my feet wait when I encounter a difficult to navigate puddle. Just a short burst on my rocket wings and I will be over that pesky puddle in no time!
$2 for a cup of coffee...
$3 for coat check...
$4 an hour for parking...
If they don't change their attitude, I'll just stop inviting them to my house!
Ba-Tish! Don't worry, getting my coat real soon!

My folks have a towel rack in one of their washrooms, and my mom put some nice fancy towels on it, carefully selected to match the paint on the walls, and nobody's allowed to actually use those towels coming out of the shower - if you actually need a towel, those are stored in the laundry room (which is across the hall from the washroom).
I used to ask my mom what the point was, as this is a functional washroom, not a museum where people come in and pay to look at some display. She never appreciated my "function over form" rationalization.
