diving in the millpond

I've been researching the history of diving apparatus and found this, which made me laugh:

I worry about poor Lester Klemme with that kitchen funnel soldered to the top of his helmet. It seems he only used it to wander around in his millpond, so I suppose it could have been made out of a bucket and he'd still have been fine.

My sister will be starting her first half marathon in a little more than an hour. I wish I could be there to cheer her on, and not just because it is being held here. I'm so proud!

ooh, goody!.. Brie seems to have signed me up for live race updates. I was just sitting here wondering how she was doing, and her race stats appeared in my inbox as if by magic. Hmm.. I wonder how the information is gathered? Has the Disney Corporation implanted the runners with chips like dogs?
