Poll: Your Favorite Regional Jet? « A Reality of My Own

What is your favorite Regional Jet?  These aircraft are the workhorses of the airlines%u2019 spoke and wheel distribution system.  Often picking up passengers at smaller airports and shuttling them over short distance, within the region, to a major airport, their small size makes for intimate accomodations.

With many models available for flight simulator, I am curious about which regional jet is your favorite.  I will say that I find myself flying the Bombardier CRJ series quite often.  I think the CRJ-700, in particular, is quite sexy.

Please take a moment to respond to the poll below and let%u2019s see if there is a consensus.  Poll closes March 15th, please only vote once.

So, what is your favorite regional jet?

The Rotterdamn Collective – Workspaces – Lifehacker

The Rotterdamn Collective

Many of our featured workspaces are featured for what they contain. The most notable thing about today’s featured workspace is what it doesn’t contain.

Lifehacker reader re404 gets stuff done in a work collective located in Rotterdam. His workspace is inside an almost entirely empty loft space in a commercial/industrial area. The emptiness is the most notable thing about the workspace; he and his office mates have a huge amount of license when it comes to arranging their space—the table in the second picture below is a ping-pong table created from wood they salvaged from the previous occupants remodeling of the space.

If we’ve ever featured a workspace that begged to be used for lunch time games of Laser Tag, this is certainly it. What would you do with an “office” that was 90% open space?

If you have a workspace of your own to show off, throw the pictures on your Flickr account and add it to the Lifehacker Workspace Show and Tell Pool. Include some details about your setup and why it works for you, and you just might see it featured on the front page of Lifehacker.

From the first picture it looks like a guy who is doing some heavy hacking work for a covert, underground operation. He is holed up in an abandoned parking garage several levels below the city. That guy always dies.

I couldn’t work there. I need some confines. But if there is room for a basketball goal, I’d consider it.


I see what you’re doing here Jason, and I dig it. 😀

In the past, a few of my posts have discussed how to decorate your cubicle with the intention of helping you all become more productive by creating a unique, comfortable and inviting work environment. As Lifehacker points out in their recent post, sometimes it is what the work space lacks that makes it more productive than what it has. Thoughts?

Are We Really Born to Run?

Are we really born to run?  I don’t know.  Wish I knew the answer, but after reading Born to Run by Christopher McDougall, I think I will be a lot closer to the answer.  You see, McDougall’s book is about the quest to find the answer to the question.  He ironically states: 

“These were very good questions.  But as I was about to discover, the only ones who knew the answers – the only ones who lived the answers – weren’t talking.  Especially not to someone like me”.  – Christopher McDougall, Born to Run, p 13

Clearly I am only thirteen pages into this book and I am captivated.  Whether it was chapter one’s tail of find “El Caballo Blanco” or the strange commonality to my own quest for the same answers, I really can’t wait to see how this book unfolds. 

Before I go, let me leave you all, my loyal readers, with one last quote from the book.  I found this to be very motivating and might blow it up really big and hang it in my cubicle for inspiration:

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.  It knows that it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.  Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.  It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle – when the sun comes up, you better be running.” – Christopher McDougall, Born to Run, p 13

With that said, more to come as I explore the world of Born to Run
