the actual crash in progress

So many things had to go wrong on March 27, 1977 for the Tenerife Disaster to occur, and all those things did go wrong. Two Boeing 747 Airliners crashed in Spain, killing 583 people. This was second only to the events of 9/11 as the worst airline fatality disaster in history.

This YouTube report is not a lot of blood and gore if that's what you're looking for, although I'm sure you can find such stuff. This is more about how it happened, how it could have been prevented....and whose fault it was. Fascinating and horrifying.

I'm sure you have the fundamentals of Einstein's Special Relativity down pat, but it never hurts to review.

And here are ten of the world's greatest physicists explaining it; I love Michio Kaku best but I've always kind of had a thing for him.

If you know what I mean.

It's all relative.

Seven things you can buy at KMart right now**

**To be fair, I did this online via KMart's website, so availability of items varies from store to store.

And let us not be snobby. KMart has some pretty cool stuff. If you're exclusively a Macy's shopper, I'm not sure why you're reading this at all. And if you think a clock made of cooking utensils is tacky, well, I just don't know you at all!

The model looks a bit odd...

Form Contour-1943

She does look awful around the chest area. But what I really want is that medically-endorsed book called "The Complete Guide To Bust Culture".

That would be a keeper!
