Smarter Every Day Talks About The Archer’s Paradox


Nope, the picture above and the video below does not show a archer’s arrow flying towards you and crashing through your computer screen.  This episode of Smarter Every Day talks about issues called the archer’s paradox.  So, why does the arrow wobble and vibrate significantly after being shot?  Enjoy some science and more archery action in slow motion!  Boy, those arrows are very thin!

Crowdsourcing Mornings: Titan Mixer Bottle

Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Meet the Titan Mixer Bottle, a sophisticated mixer bottle designed specifically for fitness enthusiasts. It weighs only 6 ounces and has a compact, ergonomic design. The bottle is shatterproof and watertight, so you don’t have to be worried about spills no matter how you pack it.  The Titan Mixer Bottle has a handle that you can give a few pumps to pulverize protein and prepare your drink.

The bottle has a supplement cup, so you can carry scoops of your favorite supplements everywhere you go. The Titan Mixer Bottle is pretty easy to clean as well because it’s dishwasher safe and leak proof.  There are many hurdles to overcome when bringing a new innovative product to market. At 5ID, they have taken every step possible, from product design through to manufacturing, to deliver a superior product without compromise.


As of May 29th, this project has raised around $19,000 of their $25,000 goal. This project only has 38 days left to raise the $25,000 or it will not be funded!  For a pledge of $25, you will get one Titan Mixer Bottle.  For a pledge of $60, you will get three Titan Mixer Bottles.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:

The Evening Post: America’s Got Talent Drew Lynch Stuttering Comedian

Geek Alabama Evening Post

Tonight, I knew I had to share this from America’s Got Talent.  Drew suffered from severe nerve damage to his vocal chords after playing softball.  Drew had to go through a lot after his injury, but took up comedy to feel better about himself.  And boy, it has worked very well!

Drew appeared on America’s Got Talent, and wowed the crowd!  The crowd and judges loved the stand up routine so much, that Howie Mandel used his one and only golden buzzer to send Drew Lynch straight to the live shows at Radio City Music Hall.  Thank you Howie for doing that!  Drew was very happy on his Twitter account!

Get some feel good talent in the video below!
