Looking for a blog post about culture and cultural/moral relativism

Is this very expensive robotic pool cleaner worth it?

We have a pool and we need a pool cleaner. The pool shop has recommended this Pandora robotic cleaner. It costs a lot – A LOT – of money. And I can’t find any consumer reviews telling me if it’s worth the almost $2000 AUD.

Derivation of dolphin (mooring)

What is the derivation of the nautical term dolphin? Not the mammal please. A dolphin is a cluster of pile or a similar object, used for mooring vessels. If there is no answer could I be pointed in the right direction for information?

Getting to a Marlins game

I'm spending next week in Ft. Lauderdale, and plan on going to see a Marlins game sometime during the week. I'd prefer to take some sort of public transit to the stadium, but the Marlin's site doesn't mention anything about it. Is there some relatively safe/reliable way to get there without having to drive myself? If so, where's the best place to park to get on the transit? My big reason to want to go this way is to avoid stadium traffic, so I'd like to catch a bus or whatever far enough from the stadium so as to avoid that.
