Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Help.

The Legged Squad Support System (LS3) is a rough-terrain robot developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA and the US Marine Corps. It is designed to carry 400 lbs of payload and travel 20 miles without refueling. LS3 has sensors that let it follow a human leader while avoiding obstacles in the terrain.

I've seen this or something like it before. Turn up the volume. It sounds like a lawn mower.
I can't imagine any soldier wanting to be within 100 yards of it. Just a mortar magnet. Unless they
can make it quiet I think it's going to go the way of the jet pack. In other words, a cool idea that
is/was totally impractical.

But since this thread is about clips, I found this one.

I would like to see 3D chalk street art for real someday. The images are in
3D only from one perspective. The clip is to show those unfamiliar with this
art form that it is indeed real. It is a very basic tutorial/example of what's possible.

The links below are for those that want to see more on the subject.

The image (which is not a clip) is by Kurt Wenner. It was chosen because it is somewhat
trading related. In this art form sometimes an man/woman/child is actually 'inside' the art.

Some people are so talented!




Some of Julian Beever's work below:

Kurt Wenner's Galley 1 stuff below. These hi-res images will enlarge if clicked upon:

I forgot about this. Should have posted it in the previous post.

The song is Sidewalk Pictures, sung by Stephanie Mabey. If you just want
a little music you don't have to watch the video of course.

Sorry video quality is poor. Video shows top of the line sidewalk chalk drawings
by Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner. If you went through the previous links and clicked
on everything, I don't think there is much new here. (Video is 5 years old.)

In discretionary trading the main thing is to perceive what is going on. Anyone
with normal vision can see a chart. That's never enough though. With 3D sidewalk art
it looks terrible from every direction except the correct one. Then everything changes.

In the video there are a few examples of the 3D images as seen from the wrong perspective,
as well as the correct one.

That's it for me on this subject, unless anyone comments.

Take care,

- Stephen

Source: Russian trucks crash into each other, one driver nails the dismount

After an accident, most of us are left scratching our heads as to what we do next, but the guy pictured above is probably scratching his head wondering how he's still alive. Captured from the dashcam of this Russian driver, a massive collision between two big rigs shows that while seatbelts definitely save lives, sometimes it doesn't hurt to have luck (make that a lot of luck) on your side, too.

It isn't clear if the truck in front of our camera was trying to squeeze into a left turn, execute a passing maneuver or simply or simply trying to avoid a stopped truck in the road, but either way, there wasn't enough room. The result was this blue truck slamming into the side of the turning truck at a pretty good clip. This truck driver, obviously not wearing his seatbelt, was ejected out of the cab through the windshield, but more impressive/amazing is the fact that ends up sticking the landing in a way that might leave Gabby Douglas or Aly Raisman feeling a little jealous.

While we can't say for sure whether or not this driver suffered any injuries, we sure hope he learned his lesson and buckles up in the future.

Watch how this truck driver miraculously survives his ejection in the video below.
