Perfect shot of a swimmer just before the water's surface tension is broken, via reddit

I saw it paired with a similar shot here with @Hookzilla asking "What if water just don't let you out one day..."
i think every day about how cable internet is IP over MPEG. this is a literal fact. DOCSIS sends downstream data in MPEG frames because that's what the cable networks are optimized for and what all the switching equipment understood when cable broadband took off
(Later followup: "important note: i'm told docsis 1 and 2 were burdened like this but the current standard has probably done away with it. It appears that it WAS like this for many years though.")
