I know, but it's depressing. This sort of rural-ish area is quiet and lovely and pleasant, but as I say I've got to get married first.

Is it just me or is the voice leading here very odd?

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. …

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.

<troll>Claim: it's rational to use good luck charms / rituals, so long as they're very cheap on the margin.

Either luck exists in the universe or it does not. If it does, you're better off obtaining good luck charms. If it doesn't, they won't harm you.

By Pascal's Wager^WTheorem, collect lucky charms and pick lucky seats at poker tables.

You know what they say: "There are no atheists in Foxwoods." (Sorry for the local joke. Foxwoods is a nearby casino."

This starts out as a slightly sad, slightly funny court transcript of an not-all-there guy (probably somewhat schizophrenic?) who's convinced his lawyer is out to get him..

Then we get to page twelve:

MR. ALLEN: Now, you're yellng at me again.
THE COURT: I am. I'm yelling.

The whole thing really wants staging--I want to hear the proper tone in:

MR. ALLEN: I don't think that mouth is big enough, sir. I've got a big old donkey dick.
THE COURT: You know, I'm sure mine--I'm sure mine's not.

Seriously, read the whole thing.

Today's adventure in false precision is a two for one.

First, no, your scale is not good to five significant figures; round your conversions.

Second, that weight was the vague number I wrote down on a clipboard, it wasn't even measured. I don't even buy the ones digit.

I competed in the MCM (https://www.comap.com/undergraduate/contests/mcm/) as a high school freshman, before I'd learned about significant figures, or calculus.  The problem was a physics problem about a falling ladder.  I figured, "the more significant figures, the better, because they can check my work better." So the submitted paper (.doc, of course) had ~10 digits per number, and around 10 numbers.  In hindsight, it must have been pretty humorous for the judges to open that one up.   But I guess they saw all kinds of weird stuff.

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")

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.

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