A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.

cool idea. I wonder how much more difficult steering would be with that gyro effect going on inside the wheel.

For what I'd save in buying disposable foot warmers for Mike during hunting season the price would probably be worth it, and it's better for the environment. Now we need rechargeable gloves.

Bra Mask Wins The Ig Nobel Prize :idea: :D

http://www.missomnimedia.com/2009/10/m- ... -mask_001/

Designed by scientist Elena Bodnar, the gas mask bra is exactly what it says it is: a bra that doubles as a gas mask. The cups can be separated so that you can give a mask to a friend in need. While it sounds odd to strap a bra cup to your face, there’s a reason behind this apparent madness. Bodnar, originally from the Ukraine, witnessed the devastating effects of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown in 1986. Bodnar said if women had been wearing life saving bras instead of frilly cut ones, many people could have been saved from breathing in the deadly Iodine 131 that permeated the area. That gas was one of the major reasons behind the rise in cancer and other health problems in the region after the disaster.

Bodnar’s invention was one of the winner’s at the 19th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony. Hosted by the Annals of Improbable Research, the honor scientific achievements “that first make people laugh, and then make them think.” So the next time someone asks if they can unhook your bra, keep in mind that it might not be just to cop some feels.
