no idea what the original looks like but I call fake because
a) in the first pic the cover doesn't fit snugly over the box (you can see extra space around the sides)
b) looks like there is a piece of uncut string coming off the case in the second pic

edit:
100% fake: Check out the "b" on the headphone on the box, that's what its supposed to look like.
On the headphone in the last pic it looks like a "6". I am looking at a pair of legit beats in my hands right now and they are exactly like the ones in the first pic.

I call fake as well, the box that I have doesn't look like that inside.

the market is so flooded with fakes that look and sound almost identical to the real deal. If you're gonna buy them buy them from the store or just buy basic headphones online and get better sound quality for less of a premium.

Went to the last Food Cart Fest of the year. Man, what a feast! Perfect day for it. Slight wind with a bit of cloud cover. The place was jam packed today. I tried a few things. Bacon wraps from the pink truck.......... sooooo good. So much bacon! I missed out on the famous bourbon brownies. I got there late afternoon and a lot of stuff was sold out. I really hope it's back again next year.

In case you missed it, here's the info about the event.

Food Cart Fest at The Waldorf – Every Sunday Starting July 29 | The Waldorf Hotel

If you've never been, you have to go next year.

BBC News - Gravitational waves spotted from white-dwarf pair

Quote:
Gravitational waves spotted from white-dwarf pair
By Jason Palmer Science and technology reporter, BBC News



Researchers have spotted visible-light evidence for one of astronomy's most elusive targets - gravitational waves - in the orbit of a pair of dead stars.

Until now, these ripples in space-time, first predicted by Einstein, have only been inferred from radio-wave sources.

But a change in the orbits of two white dwarf stars orbiting one another 3,000 light-years away is further proof of the waves that can literally be seen.

A study to be reported in Astrophysical Journal Letters describes the pair.

Gravitational waves were a significant part of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which viewed space itself as a malleable construct, and the gravity of massive objects as a force that could effectively warp it.

Catching sight of an actual gravitational wave, however, is a tricky business; their effects tend to be tiny and the have so far eluded discovery in Earth-bound experiments.

But the wider Universe provides a laboratory in which the indirect effects of gravitational waves can be measured.
Six-second switch

In principle, any two massive objects orbiting one another can emit gravitational waves, slowly losing the momentum of their orbits into the waves.

The effect is to slightly change the size of the orbits, and the time it takes to complete them.

A measurement of a minuscule change in the orbits of rapidly rotating neutron stars called pulsars garnered the 1993 Nobel Prize in physics.

But pulling off the same trick with visible light has seemed unlikely until now.

It is the extreme nature of the pair of white dwarf stars known as J0651 - each a substantial fraction of our Sun's mass orbiting each other at a distance just a third that between the Earth and Moon - that increases the magnitude of the gravitational waves.

As members of the same team reported in Astrophysical Journal in 2011, the pair orbit each other in less than 13 minutes.

Since that discovery, the team has been keenly watching the pair "eclipse" one another, with each briefly blocking out the other's light as seen from Earth.

Over a period of 13 months, the team saw the orbital period reduce by less than a thousandth of a second, but the effect also shifts when the eclipse time is expected to happen, and that has shifted back by some six seconds since the pair were discovered.

"A lot of these indirect measurements have taken people years, mostly because the orbits are so much longer," explained lead author of the study, JJ Hermes from the University of Texas at Austin.

Mr Hermes told BBC News that he liked the idea that such a groundbreaking result was established in part by using a telescope nearly as old as Einstein's theory: the Otto Struve 2.1m telescope at the McDonald Observatory in Texas.

"There have been 30 years of using radio telescopes and timing pulsars, but this is the first time we've been able to detect the influence of gravitational wave radiation using an optical telescope," he told BBC News.

The team will continue to watch the pair's tightening orbit, and the expected eclipse time should shift back by another 20 seconds by next May. The results will also help guide observations from "direct detection" experiments.

These, such as the proposed eLisa project, aim to measure the tiny relative movements of vastly separated detectors as gravitational waves pass - a final, irrefutable proof that the waves are what relativity predicted so long ago.

"It would be a really nice confirmation if we got one of these laser interferometer missions going - we'd know exactly what to look for," Mr Hermes said.

"We've crunched the numbers, and eLisa would be able to detect this thing in about a week."


Much of the work was carried out at an optical telescope built in the 1930s

Yet another reason Bruce Willis is awesome.
Bruce Willis Planning Legal Battle to Leave iTunes Library in His Will
Quote:
Bruce Willis Planning Legal Battle to Leave iTunes Library in His Will
Jamie Condliffe
Action movie legend Bruce Willis is apparently eyeing up a legal battle in order to guarantee that he can pass his massive iTunes library onto his children when he dies.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Willis is concerned about the fact that upon his death his entire music collection will revert to Apple ownership. As a result, he's taking some major steps to ensure that his tunes instead pass directly to his three daughters.

So far, he's been looking into "family trusts" which act as legal holders of the downloaded music. But the Mail also reports that he's prepared to take Apple to court over the issue. Speaking to the Mail, lawyer Chirs Walton explained:

"Lots of people will be surprised on learning all those tracks and books they have bought over the years don't actually belong to them. It's only natural you would want to pass them on to a loved one. The law will catch up, but ideally Apple and the like will update their policies and work out the best solution for their customers."

While the idea of Willis battling Apple in order to hand over his MP3s to his daughters sounds a little absurd, it could well set a precedent which shapes the future of digital rights. In the meantime, though, let's watch Willis singing Under The Boardwalk, which must be top of the list of songs he wants to keep in the family.

So I work in Poco and can't wait until Five Guy's Burger's in Fremont Village opens up. So I pop up the website to take a look and I click on the site map and they are now shows a fast food joint next to RBC with the logo being 2 heads. Does anyone know what fast food joint that is?

Pole dancing lessons for little girls comes to B.C.



I really have no stance on the actual pole dancing part of the story, but the name of the program is just fucked up and really doesn't help the case of the proprietors and defenders of the program.

In case anybody is unaware of the term, from UrbanDictionary:

A petite woman. Denoted as a joke, whereby the petite woman is so thin she is able to be mounted and spun in a circle on an erect penis.

If for dinner, Sushi Hachi in Richmond is very good but pricey.
