Big Dead Place: Inside the Strange and Menacing World of Antarctica
Big Dead Place: Inside the Strange and Menacing World of Antarctica
Price: $9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed reading this book, March 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really enjoyed reading this book. It's full of tangents and tales that loop back around and is a good commentary on the absurdities that arise when entrenched, old organizations try to work as they always have in such an alien place. A great sneak peek into what NASA might face in the future, bureaucratically-speaking, as we venture forth.

There are also some fascinating snippets of Antarctic history jabbed in strategically that accentuate well.

I wish his passion for the place could have continued along with him.

On the downside, it's feels choppy and disjointed at times. But not at all damagingly so. I would very much have liked to know some of those characters better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enough for normal work, inexpensive, and sips power!, January 18, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These aren't the fastest, but they sip power and perform great for small workstations that don't get super heavy use. And they just sip tiny amounts of power! No graphics card required either, for just normal work stuff and normal videos. Plus they support hardware virtualization even! Amazingly good chip for the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars The clarity is wonderful and the colors are wonderful, January 18, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This comes with the waterproof case - I was wondering when I bought it. You'll also probably want a microSDXC memory card for 60fps recording (pro mode). I bought a couple Sony 64G ones for about $30 each.

The clarity is wonderful and the colors are wonderful. Transferring from the camera is easy. But you can't delete your videos or pictures - you have to reformat the card, which is silly.

You can transfer via WiFi or USB cable. The image stabilization is incredibly good.

This camera, being a hundred dollars less than the main competitor, was a no-brainer for me. Getting good color requires no postprocessing at all. And it works very well in low light!

I am completely happy with this purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Received a "short stack", February 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love Hobnobs - and these are great. However, I didn't receive 10.5 oz. packs (300g). I received short 260g packs. Small. So many missing cookies. Although these Hobnobs were super delicious, it made receiving fewer than I paid for all the more traumatic. ;) I'd make sure you purchased them from someone besides "Premier Life". Although I did enjoy the tabloid newspaper packing.


Desperate Landscapes Season 8

4.0 out of 5 stars Good series, OK learning, August 29, 2013
I like the series, and I like the way homeowners are taught. It's entertaining and informative. They make such a huge deal about having only 8 hours to complete though - probablkhy for drama's sake. I'd love if they could devote that time and effort to more informative content. That's my only complaint. But still you always end end learning a good thing or two, and get inspired by one thing or another. Very happy to see Amazon including Scripps Network programming.

4.0 out of 5 stars decent price and good product, April 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I settled on Opti-free Replenish a while ago because it worked the best for me. I often leave my contacts in overnight and always use these drops before I go to sleep. My eyes always feel fine in the morning with them.

I have read that some people feel a brief sting when using them, and I used to a year or so ago, but no longer feel it. It wasn't much of a sting anyway, and it felt so nice afterward. No other drops I have tried make my contacts feel like a fresh pair. I'm sure people's eye chemistry is different... But these work wonderfully for me. The 3-pack here was the same price my local store sold them. So yes, for me, these were great! 4 stars because I wish they were slightly cheaper than the individual ones I can locally buy - considering I'm buying 3 at once here. I know. Greedy. ;-)

Lots of quality screws and a great value. Couldn't ask for better. Arrived very quickly, too. And of course works great with their pocket hole jig.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's alright, July 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a nice little bit of incense - not strong at all, and the sticks are quite small compared to other incense like Satya Sai Baba. They burn down quite fast and easily snap.

The scent is pleasant, though. Very soft and subtle. It is not interesting or engaging, though - which could be a good thing in certain circumstances.

It's nice, and I don't regret getting it -- but it's not my cup of tea. I think it is highly likable, though.
