You’ve come to the right place. LegalEagle is all about giving you an insider’s view to the legal system. Have some fun and learn to think like a lawyer.
I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous. So I created this channel to answer your burning questions about the law and the legal profession. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth. Learn everything you always wanted to know about being an attorney! ..."

VideoSift shared an interesting nine minutes YouTube video showing "Why Planes Don't Fly Over the Pacific Ocean -- Why do airlines avoid the Pacific Ocean? You might think it was a safety issue. The Pacific is the largest and deepest of the world’s oceans. If a plane encounters a problem over a seemingly endless and bottomless pond of water, the pilots are going to have a rough time finding a safe spot to set her down.
Guessing that it is a safety precaution wouldn't be entirely wrong. When planning a route, many pilots prefer to maximize the number of airports along their path. Emergencies are incredibly rare relative to how many planes take to the skies every day. That said, it isn’t the main reason airlines tend to avoid making a straight shot east to west..."

Lynn McGuire's newsgroup post shared a Blackblaze blog post showing interesting data centers -- "Many of us would concede that buildings housing data centers are generally pretty ordinary places. They’re often drab and bunker-like with few or no windows, and located in office parks or in rural areas. You usually don’t see signs out front announcing what they are, and, if you’re not in information technology, you might be hard pressed to guess what goes on inside.
If you’re observant, you might notice cooling towers for air conditioning and signs of heavy electrical usage as clues to their purpose. For most people, though, data centers go by unnoticed and out of mind. Data center managers like it that way, because the data stored in and passing through these data centers is the life’s blood of business, research, finance, and our modern, digital-based lives.
That’s why the exceptions to low-key and meh data centers are noteworthy. These unusual centers stand out for their design, their location, what the building was previously used for, or perhaps how they approach energy usage or cooling.
Let’s take a look at a handful of data centers that certainly are outside of the norm..."

YouTube has an almost 1.5 hours and decade old "Special When Lit: A Pinball Documentary ... rediscovers the lure of a lost pop icon - pinball. The American invention made more money than Hollywood through the 50s and 60s. Its success swept the world making it the epitome of ‘cool’. But now pinball is all but forgotten. This is the definitive story of the rise and fall of pinball as told by the fans, collectors, designers and champion players from across the globe. Its history is charted with a series of uniquely stark and entertaining interviews with some of pinball’s greatest names. A game, a sport, a lifestyle – pinball takes this eclectic bunch back to their youth. It seems at times like an emotional and sensitive area, with the fans describing the game like a relationship, their faces lighting up as if they were recounting their first kiss. Archive footage of former US news anchorman Dan Rather opens the film from a 1977 60 Minutes segment on pinball. ‘I spent an incredible amount of time at gas stations, honky tonks and other off the beaten path places trying to appear cool...while obsessively following the descent of a steel ball down the playing surface of a garishly lit machine...a pinball machine". Pinball was everywhere. But now pinball is virtually nowhere. Kids don’t even know what a pinball machine is. Their world is online, not at the arcade or corner store. The fate of pinball seems decided yet there exists a passionate sub culture keeping the dream alive. Roger Sharpe, pinball authorative, tells the story of Pinball’s early rise to prominence in the Depression era, its eventual banning by the US Government for 30 years, the boom time in the 1970’s, and eventual defeat to video games. Living through the industry ups and downs, legendary game designers Steve Kordek, Steve Ritchie and Pat Lawlor reveal the inner workings of a game that fuses the mechanical and electrical ages. From a primitive steel ball rolling around on a flat piece of wood, designers craft a game based on the simple premise - easy to play, but hard to beat. And crucially, the collectors who feed off the designer’s handywork all crave one thing - more space. But pinball is a game with a score. And where there are scores there are competitions. ‘The Storm’, a stockbroker from New York City, confesses that you have to ‘build up your pinball muscles’ in order to compete at the highest level. From the European championships in Amsterdam and Sweden, to the World Pinball Championships in Pittsburgh, and a smattering of amateur backyard tournaments in between, Special When Lit shares the tension, dreams and disappointments of pinball’s tournament players. Rick Stetta, former World Champion, entertains with his flamboyant playing style, while current legend Lyman Sheats Jr. counters with ice-cool precision. Each to his own in a contest that is as much a mental game as physical. But it is in the final story of former arcade owner, Steve Epstein, who ran the famous Broadway Arcade in midtown New York City, that sets the inevitability of pinball. Describing pinball as a ‘universe in a box that is a lot like life - you never know what is around the corner’. Pinball was more than coins in the slots for Epstein, it became his whole social life. In a time where we can instantly access any song or movie from our past, pinball offers a throwback to a tactile physical experience that can’t be digitally reproduced. We now share our fun in a different way, but have we lost something in the process? Special When Lit recounts an alternative love for a game which brought out a wealth for memories for many generations but also the sad dissolution of what could be described as a certain way of living and playing. Perhaps pinball deserves a better fate than simply a nostalgic footnote. Whatever the future, Special When Lit will leave you searching for an arcade to line up your coins and master the silver ball.
There is also 2.5 minutes trailer on YouTube.

LinkedIn shared a Quartz article on "What your laptop-holding position says about you -- They walk among us in just about every office: People with their laptops open, bound for conference rooms and common areas, many keeping their devices ajar to avoid losing those precious few seconds of computer wake-up time.
While we cloak our phones in shock-proof plastic and their screens with tempered-glass shields, laptops rarely get similar protection. Considering these pieces of hardware are some of the most expensive items we work with, it’s a little shocking to see how cavalier we can be toward our one essential work device.
But since when has safety outweighed looking cool?
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been observing Quartzians in their natural habitat and have tried to make sense of their odd office rituals in porting their laptops from one meeting to the next. Here are some of our findings..."

Buni is a funny comic strip series -- "... An idea for a visually cute – yet twisted and sad – comic had been rolling around in my mind for a few years. What emerged was a snaggletoothed cartoon bunny which I started publishing online in 2010.
Buni inhabits a world populated by teddy bears. Don’t ask me why. It just kind of happened that way. I also didn’t plan to create a dialogue-free pantomime comic. The first comics didn’t have words in them, so I made the next ones wordless too. Then it became Buni’s thing..."
A perfect comic strip for Saint Patrick's Day!

"Making sense of the fakes, fails, and surprising facts.
Keeping up with all the ins and outs of technology in this rapidly changing world can be difficult. It’s completely understandable (and unavoidable) for a bit of false information to slip into the conversation here and there. But when misinformation becomes myth, it can persist in the culture for years—long after it’s been debunked.
In addition to looking at some popular tech tales people google around the country, we also surveyed people about the tech myths they still believe. Here’s what we found! ..."

Best Life currently has five/5 rad(ical) articles on twenty/20 slang terms from each decade from the (seco/2)nd half of the 1900s ((19)50s-(19)90s) that no one uses anymore: 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.
This old school ant still says daddy-O, pad, far out, bummer, bad, no duh, not even, talk to the hand, as if, booyah!, not!, whatever, sup, and you go girl though. :/ It looks like rad(ical) is still popular. :D

- Which Kills More People: Extreme Heat or Extreme Cold? -- "Extreme heat and extreme cold both kill hundreds of people each year in the U.S., but determining a death toll for each is a process subject to large errors..." Here's a related poll: A related poll about the extreme cold and heat:
- Flu Weather: It's Not the Cold, It's the Humidity -- "Folk wisdom has it that cold weather predisposes you to a cold or flu bug. The truth is a bit more complicated—and a lot more interesting. Research over the past few years has zeroed in on atmospheric moisture as the main weather-related factor in flu transmission. The findings are especially relevant this winter, with the U.S. in the throes of one of its worst winters of flu in years, and its driest winter in more than three decades. The key seems to be humidity levels inside, where people gather (and cough) during cold weather. Because it takes less moisture to saturate cold air than warm air, there can easily be high relative humidity (RH) outside on a bitterly cold day. However, once that air is heated to room temperature, the RH plummets..."
Ant prefers the extreme hot weather (can go naked!) over cold weather. Also, no flu infection for this season so far. ;)
