Test Video From Instagram’s Hyperlapse

Walking across the street for a midday Slurpee™.

Pretty easy to use. The only real challenge would be restraining myself from adding Philip Glass music to every clip.

You can download the original higher quality (MPEG 4 h.264, 720p, 33.8 MB) here. YouTube compressed it a bit more than I would have liked.

Identify This Spider?

He/she is about the size of a marble. Wondering if it’s benign or not.


Looks like it's a common Orb Weaver. Thanks to ktrey over @ mlkshk for the ident.

Management: How many feet do mice have?
Reply: Mice have four feet.
M: Elaborate!
R: Mice have five appendages, and four of them are feet.
M: No discussion of fifth appendage!
R: Mice have five appendages; four of them are feet; one is a tail.
M: What? Feet with no legs?
R: Mice have four legs, four feet, and one tail per unit-mouse.
M: Confusing — is that a total of 9 appendages?
R: Mice have four leg-foot assemblies and one tail assembly per body.
M: Does not fully discuss the issue!
R: Each mouse comes equipped with four legs and a tail. Each leg
is equipped with a foot at the end opposite the body; the tail
is not equipped with a foot.
M: Descriptive? Yes. Forceful NO!
R: Allotment of appendages for mice will be: Four foot-leg assemblies,
one tail. Deviation from this policy is not permitted as it would
constitute misapportionment of scarce appendage assets.
M: Too authoritarian; stifles creativity!
R: Mice have four feet; each foot is attached to a small leg joined
integrally with the overall mouse structural sub-system. Also
attached to the mouse sub-system is a thin tail, non-functional and
ornamental in nature.
M: Too verbose/scientific. Answer the question!
R: Mice have four feet.
