What is that?

It's an external hard drive case with a couple brass weights and a thumb drive in it. The thumb drive pretends it's 1TB or 2TB, but probably has an actual storage capacity of a GB or two.

When you write something to it, it writes out to disk, and then starts rewriting at the beginning. But it "remembers" the file system you copied, so all your files are still "there" in directory listings and such.

Since most people would toss a couple files on it to "make sure it works" and then set up backups and ignore it, there's probably a lot of those floating around that people have no idea aren't actually holding their data.

Yeah, those are two concrete anchors glued in to give it weight. :lol:

Nice. I love designs like that, a mix of old and new.
Um, no. The 1972 model was perfect.

I dunno, as reboots go, that is a pretty nice looking truck.

I think I'm not the demographic that that truck would be marketed to.

The top has to be removable. It's just not a Bronco otherwise.

Not to mention the floor panels rusting through, so you can see the road under your feet.

Another trans-Neptunian object found by astronomers at Mauna Kea:

KH162 has a considerably tilted orbit which was probably affected by Neptune in that its orbit is exactly 3 times the length of that of Neptune (although even if both Neptune and this object happened to be at their closest possible point together, they still would be about as far from each other as Uranus is from the Sun because of the tilt), taking 489.6 years to complete one orbit.

Still some question on how large it is since we have nothing with which to make that determination. It could be a very bright object (like covered with water ice) which would mean that it may be around 500 km in diameter, or it could be a much darker one which could mean that its diameter is closer to 1000 km. In contrast: Pluto's diameter is 2300 km.

KH162 is not in a convenient location so that the New Horizons probe could be directed anywhere close to it. Note that from the diagrams above that when New Horizons passed Pluto, the dwarf planet was very close to the general orbital plane for all of the planets which was NOT a coincidence. Had Pluto been further off the Solar System's orbital plane then the gravitational assist that Jupiter gave to New Horizons would have used a considerable fraction of the speed increase to direct the probe off the orbital plane.

Are you sure you're not getting it confused with a Scout?

A friend in high school had a Scout, my uncle had a Bronco, and a friend in college had a Jeep.

All suffered the same floorboard condition, though I think the Scout was the worst.

There was something odd about the motion of the mask in particular, but downloading the GIF and examining it frame reveals the (not) "problem": the mask was ALSO hit by the man's flailing arm which was the actual impetus of the mask out of frame.
