I'm a very lucky guy. Seriously. I have an amazing family, an amazing job, and I am surrounded by things that just bring joy to my life. Lucky. Like I said.
There are some things that I always wanted when I was growing up. There are some things I still want. (And yes, I'm still working on the growing up thing.) One of those things I always wanted as a kid and still want as a semi-adult is a life full of flying. I love to fly. Seriously, I really, really love to fly. I've always wanted to fly, and I've always wanted to have a family of my own that shared my love for flight. Like the other lucky aspects of my life, I've got that family.

Drive safely my friends!
Up until January 20, 2013, my favorite thing I had ever done in an airplane was to fly a King Air 200 at FL230 over Atlantic City, NJ, at sunset. That might sound pretty outstanding to you too. If you have any interest in aviation or really awesome things, it should. It's still one of those aviation moments I will never forget, but it has been replaced as my all-time favorite. My new favorite aviation experience was getting some one-on-one time with a beautiful and truly unique airplane, the Consolidated B-24 Liberator.
It's number 252534, the last Liberator still flying. Out of 18,000 that were manufactured, this is the last one that flies. This was truly a once in a lifetime kind of experience.
Ok, so I love infographics. I love them too much. Honestly, I need an intervention. However, barring that dreaded day, I will continue to post awesome infographics as I discover them on the interwebs.
Today's submission is an excellent bit of artwork that depicts the human body as a subway map. It is a very interesting concept, and one that really helps you get a good feel for how the body's systems do their work and how they interrelate. Now I understand this is grade school stuff, but seriously, the human body is pretty freaking amazing. Here's a map to prove it!
I don't really have the words that are necessary to explain, comment on, or summarize the video below. Someone, with a whole heck of a lot of time on their hands, built the coolest miniature airport ever. When it comes to modelling, this thing takes the top prize in my book.
You must see it to believe it. Seriously, this is a great way to waste five and half minutes of your life.
Living the life and writing (some of) it down for your reading excitement.
