A high-density city, campus or neighborhood is a great place to live and work, but it can be a frustrating place to get around. From congestion to limited space to bike thieves, many factors make transportation slower, more expensive and less fun. We’re focused on building simple, efficient, and fun ways to make this better. …

How should I name my Roomba?

It doesn't fit any of my schema [1] though I could shoehorn it into computers as a "gadget."

[1]
dogs: British ships of the line
cars: US capitol ships
bikes: fictional women
computers / Android devices: battlemechs (occasionally battle armor or Protomechs for tiny devices)

Mine is named Mitch, after Mitch Connor of South Park. (He's a drifter).

My previous roomba, Sparky, lost his battle with battery issues late last year and we had to put him down. In the closet.

You know, I'm a fan of theater groups and theater spaces, and a sworn enemy of most people on Mercer, but every time you use the word "normie", sneer at anyone who likes open land or "sports" (sidebar: yes, "sports" is the only conceivable reason someone could want an actual nature space), the more I support them and want to ruin your plans.
I am going to ask you to care about a children's theater. You may think you don't care about community theater created by kids, but you do. Children's theaters inspire kids to use their imaginations while also teaching them teamwork, public-speaking skills, lying gracefully, and intergenerational and cross-class communications techniques. You need to practice all of that stuff in order to function at a high level as a citizen, employee, and human...

I kinda agree with you on the 'normie' usage, but I think you're reading too much into the mentions of open space and sport. I believe the author is criticizing people who falsely claim those interests as a reason to oppose this sort of project. After all, they make a point of noting that this proposed project doesn't actually impact those interests, rather than dismissing them as valid concerns in general.

If you're curious, I now have N=2 anecdotal evidence that meat thermometers substantially overestimate human temperature.

(Or perhaps my thermometers are poorly calibrated, but Thermoworks is supposed to be better than that.)

+Andrew Hunter How do you know they are wrong? What are you comparing it to? Maybe your comparison device is wrong.

I am finding it difficult to get hard information on this plan, surprise, surprise. They won’t say which lines will be shuttered and there is talk of “six months” for the shutdown, which I translate as “quite possibly more than a year.” They are not even saying it will happen for sure, but I find …

Funny, that. See my Facebook for a note on the safety implications of the one day shut down. Tldr: probably a few dozen excess injuries, but not measurably or visibly Metro's liability.

Correction, here's a slightly better photo: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mjbaltierra/25996908322/ in which I'm about to flip this guy on his ass (bend left hand back to the mat and do a handstand while yanking on the leg). Then I realize I'm holding his ankle, go for a lock, realize I'm neither sure which variant of ankle lock is the single one that's allowed at white belt and won't get me DQ'd, nor sure how to finish it...try to complete the sweep to mount and don't get it. We then go back to a more even fight. (He eventually arm triangles me. Conditioning, man.) But at least you can see me!

My understanding is that at high level tournaments you are required to bring both a white gi and a non-white gi and switch between them so you can be distinguished from your opponent (which is why people have multiple colors).  At this sort of level no one cares.

Thai bird chilis in stirfry add great flavor, but are still too searingly spicy to eat. They're also suffused with oil and whatever was used to season the stirfry.

I really feel like this implies they should be re-usable for some other purpose. Maybe just the next stirfry? But gotta be something better than that.

+Andreas Schäfer Not an uncommon Mexican preparation either. Has various names (I just sort of scan menus for one that looks like "bloody mary + citrus + heat")

In 1944, manager Maury Maverick sent this memo to the workers at his government agency: This is the first known usage of gobbledygook to refer to obscure jargon. It wouldn’t be the last. (From the National Archives.)

In truth, this memo was two paragraphs longer than it needed to be.

We had an honest-to-goodness makeup artist at the photo shoot tonight doing me and the other guys' faces (I think her instructions for me were something along the lines of "Toby Kieth, but bishounen.") She did a very nice job (hopefully the real pictures will make this clearer...)

What ever she used on my brows + eyeliner, however, isn't coming off in the shower. I guess my eyes are just going to pop a bit for the next few days...

that is the greatest description of anything I've ever heard.

This is fucking trippy and also excellent. If the opening sentence doesn't hook you... "Honestly, who hasn't woken up in a hospital bed with no memory of how they got there? Like, that's a universal human experience, right? It's not weird? I'm asking because I actually don't know."

I wonder if this inspired xkcd's 'Mycology'? Timing is too perfect if it was incidental. Or maybe there was a common impetus for both.

Huh.  I usually hear this piece with a different arrangement.  This is recognizably the same idea but even some of the melodies are changed.

I really like it, though they have serious blend issues.

Great selection of meats, like twenty choices for sides. Friendly service. Four sauces, all good, all different. Sides of excellent quality (if perhaps overpriced.)
