Another bicycle related post. Some friends and I were at the BMX track a couple of weeks ago and decided to shoot a few photos. Here’s one of me and my buddy Rob getting pretty agro on a set of doubles. He took the high road and I took the low road. Fast and low, that’s the way to win a race.
I probably should thank Brian for this photo, so, thanks Brian.
In an unexpected bid to ensure KFC’s 11 herbs and spices secret recipe will never be leaked to competitors, Colonel Sanders has encased the only known written copy of recipe in asphalt in one of Louisville’s thousands of potholes.

Kind of making it’s rounds on the interweb, but celebrities riding invisible bikes is pretty funny. These two photos link to more on holytaco.com, but the site might not be safe for work because of some of the ads and stuff.
The next phase in the war on terror in Britain? Searching your neighbors garbage. This is just really seems like its going over the line. I thought it was bad when photographers were being harassed for taking photos in public places, but this is just ridiculous. A bit Orwellian, don’t you think? On a side note, Imagine if you were the one that had to actually do the layouts for these ads, I just wouldn’t believe it was for real.
I’m not sure if we are ahead of the curve or behind the curve on this, but this is the official worklabs.com QR code. For those of you that don’t know, if you take a picture of one of these things with your phone(assuming your phone has a qr reader app), it will do things like take you to a website or display a message. I remember seeing something about a phone app that would read barcodes and give you info about the product. This is pretty much the same thing.
As far as iPhones go, BeeTagg seems to be the best free QR reader. So yeah, even though you are already on the WORK site, go ahead and take a picture of this thing and see what it does.
I bet you saw the title of this and thought I was going to tell you that you need to follow the new WORK Labs twitter. Well you are wrong, there is no WORK Labs twitter. But you should definitely read The Ultimate Guide to Twitter, by Joe the Peacock. Based on the fact that this guy likes Field Notes and knives and not twitter, I might have to start keeping up with him, maybe “following” him, if you will.
It’s getting to be the time in Richmond that fishing is coming back around. The shad are running in the James river and soon the bass will be jumping. And it’s just in time because we just got done giving the BASS logo a bit of an update.
This is the old BASS logo, I think last time it was updated was in the mid-to-late 80’s.

Hmm, so apparently 18 feet of cloth rolled up does NOT fit in to a 2.5” tube like we previously thought. So if anyone wants to cut 7 feet of cloth off of 225 rolls, then roll them back up, let me know. I might have a beer for you.
How I haven’t put this on the blog yet is beyond me. Good times from a few months ago.
I can’t decide if this is an interesting way to teach economics students about advertising, or if it’s just wrong? Could you buy the ad space and put the answers in it?

It snowed like 8” last sunday and we got the day off on monday beacuse of it. Just realized I had a few photos from the night it snowed on my camera. I think this is the first substantial snow we have had in about 4 years. Anyone else find it a little weird how we got this much snow and now it’s almost 80 degrees today?
Awesome t-shirts from a pizzeria in San Francisco. They took 1-star reviews from Yelp and printed them on the employees shirts. Love it.
Couple of free typefaces we came across the other day that are pretty neat.
