May 20th marks 'National Pick Strawberries Day' in the U.S.

Strawberries aren't in season in Canada yet -- but over in the U.S., farmers and foodies alike are celebrating National Pick Strawberries Day.

Warm temperatures across a large portion of the U.S. have prompted crowds to get outside and indulge in the tasty fruit.
While some varities of strawberries produce early in the season, the fruit typically comes into season in Canada during the months of June and July.

Strawberry stats
Strawberries are high in Vitamin C, fiber, folic acid and potassium
The average strawberry contains about 200 seeds
Recent studies have found that strawberries can help decrease the risk of Type 2 diabetes
There are more than 600 different varieties of strawberries
In the early 19th century, strawberries were a pricey treat that were only enjoyed by the wealthy
Some studies suggest that a regular intake of strawberries can improve cognitive function

I love strawberries! Someone on here (maybe Ryanissimo) said he eats them every day. Nice when something you love is so good for you!

When I was in my car today I heard mention of a new way to control your computer just by hand movement in the air.
It's suppose to be on sale, and works by IR that tracks your movements.
Anyone see any info on that ?

Video: Leap Motion showcases $70 motion control tech

Motion control technology has become quite popular over the past few years, with the Nintendo Wii widely credited as the console responsible for bringing the platform to the masses.

Wireless motion control was ultimately adopted by a number of gaming companies such as Microsoft, which debuted the Kinect for the wildly popular Xbox 360 and Windows PCs.


And now a company known as Leap Motion has created a new device that it calls the Leap, which is supposedl 200 times more accurate than existing technology. The Leap device is about the size of a pack of gum and connects to a computer via USB.

Once connected, Leap creates a virtual workspace that is approximately 4 cubic feet in size. Within the workspace, Leap is capable of tracking ten fingers simultaneously to within 1/100 of the millimeter. This extreme level of accuracy allows for gesture controls such as pinch to zoom and other complex actions like manipulating 3-D rendered object. Frankly, it seems eerily reminiscent of the Minority Report computer system.

As expected, the software that allows the device to function can be embedded inside any device with an onboard computer, including mobile phones, tablets and even kitchen appliances. The software can also be easily customized with specific gestures, combinations and various sensitivity settings - while the daisy chaining of Multiple Leap devices is supported to create a larger workspace. As cool as the technology behind the device is, one of the most notable features is the price, which will only set you back a cool $69.99.

No, not me.

But I did learn how good the AK47 is, and how easy it is to take apart.

The M 16 seems to jamb a lot easier, and needs constant cleaning.

There is a song that says "we have a gentler and kinder machine gun in hand ..."

I think it called "rock on in the free world"
I don't concern myself, with other peoples thoughts. They can think what they want, and grind it around in their head. I always get a good nights rest. They however, are exhausted, thinking about me. My trade mark, :laugh: :laugh:

I have both, and the AR is a vastly superior weapon, and I have never had a jam.
I have shot probably 5000-10000 rounds through one before a good cleaning.

The AK is pretty good for a combat gun I guess, but not as rounded as the AR. The AK is more of a spray gun, where as the AR is a precision instrument.

Yes, that was mentioned also.

I really enjoy my AK don't get me wrong, but in a battle give me the AR anytime.
The reputation for the jamming was from when they first came out, and a few people in the Army wanted the to fail.
