Photos: Football Height

 At the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, Georgia there is a stand where they show you the ideal size of a football player. I'm just a hair under 6ft, and even I look tiny in comparison.

Things I Like: Lidl

 I'm sure my friends in Europe know exactly what I'm talking about, but most of my American and Canadian friends probably don't. Lidl is a German supermarket that spread across Europe. Like Aldi they are getting into the United States. While it isn't on my side of town (there is one soon to open though) this one is one of the very first in the United States. I think Lidl is doing the east coast first, so my friends out west might have to wait.

Fact of the Day: Tunisia Alien Planet

In the Star Wars film series both Luke Skywalker and his father Anakin Skywalker grow up on a planet called Tatooine. The name for the planet comes from the film location of the town of Tataouine in the country Tunisia.

Photo: Virtual Reality Goggles

This is my wife wearing the VR goggles at the 2nd floor of the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, Georgia. I did it as well and it looks like you're literally on the side of a field at a live football game. No matter where you turn (360 degrees) everything moves in real time. 

Favorite Quotes: Wife's Birthday

"The best way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it once."

-Joseph Cossman

I think this is probably one of the truest statements you will ever hear. My wife Daisy was born on September 11th (1986) so it's pretty darn hard to forget her birthday. I could imagine how awful my life would be if I did though.
