At work I'm an ISS flight controller. During loss-of-signal (LOS) 
periods I sometimes catch bits of SciFiles 
(http://scifiles.larc.nasa.gov/) where kids go from place to place 
discovering the science behind some phenomenon (why is the sunset red, 
etc.). They also have some nice older science and math shows sometimes. 
Here is the NASA TV Education Files web site with schedule, etc:


You can also stream the channels over the web:

Diesel content: I drive my Rabbit to work. I've noticed about a 5% 
discrepancy between the odometer and mile post signs (the odometer will 
be about half a number short of a full revolution at each mile marker). 
So, I guess I'm getting around 42 mpg at mostly 70 mph.
