Hey look at this, +Yonatan Zunger​ is quoted in story by +Ars Technica

For the record, this is probably the most offensive software bug in the history of the world. :-\

Hopefully they'll get that cleaned up. Ouch.

Yeah, I remember early on when some of my face appeared in "dog" results. It's good that they handled the problem respectfully.

That was not to imply that I ever thought of any public official, especially judges and lawyers, as honest people.

Want to make your head hurt? Epic theory though. 
Or you may hit a firewall of doom. Physicists are still debating this one.

Interesting.

Though I occasionally have a Dr. Pepper 10 on the rocks (and it has to have been a very long week at work) I usually only go to 100% white grapefruit juice when I have a cold.
 
If you continue to drink sugary drinks — sugar-sweetened sodas, iced teas, fruit drinks, and sports or energy drinks — the problem will only get worse.
Death rates will only increase if young soda-drinkers don't change their habits, experts warn

So, looks like I won't be changing plans. Once this contract is over with sprint, I may be changing to something that doesn't pull this nonsense.

Federal Communications Commission member Michael O’Rielly yesterday argued that "Internet access is not a necessity or human right" and called this one of the most important "principles for regulators to consider as it relates to the Internet and our broadband economy."
The FCC is required by Congress to expand broadband access.

So, I recently acquired a pressure cooker. Since the kids are sick, I gave it a go. Tonight's entrée: chicken tortilla soup.

Three boneless and skinless chicken tenderloins, a can of black beans, a can of pinto beans, a can of diced tomatoes, one red onion, chopped and sautéed, a bag of frozen peppers thawed and sautéed, some baby carrots, diced and sautéed, and one large potato, also diced and sautéed.

I added some cumin, garlic, paprika, cayenne pepper and a tiny dash of chipotle pepper; then cooked it for 10mins, though the warm-up and cool down time added to that. Instead of chips I warmed whole wheat tortillas and added a little pre-made guacamole.

I'm sure it will take as much time to figure out the pressure cooker as it did my convection oven, but it was damn good for a maiden voyage.

Paradoxical Unorthodox Intellectual Geek
Introduction
Devoted dad of two wonderful kids. I currently work as a Sr System Administrator, which really doesn't sound so plausible given my degrees!

I suppose I'm what happens when two polar opposite parents have a child whom apparently pulled every recessive gene from the pool. Somehow it all mashes together into one fairly unusual entity.

I'm a smart ass, definitely more than a little jaded, skeptical, frugal, reserved, contemplative and analytical. Yet somehow people find that appealing, and I've found myself forming long-lasting friendships that defy all logic--you'll either love me or hate me, there is no middle ground!

I love technology, video games, anime and sci-fi/fantasy. I enjoy reading, can't stand most television, and my musical tastes are very hit and miss.

Someday, I might get around to writing an ebook or ten, though I've been saying that for a decade...

Here's my current gadget list:
Galaxy Note II 
Nexus 7 2013 (2 - kids)
Samsung Exynos 5250 Chromebook (2)
3.4Ghz i7-3770, 8GB RAM, 2GB Video w/55" Samsung LED TV & 23" Asus
PS3
Wii

Currently playing: Borderlands 2 (PC), Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes (Android), and I have a big backlog.

I was pretty excited about Legoland, but this was so disappointing. Pick any generic overpriced "kids" place, add a mild Lego theme, and you get Legoland. My kids spent most of our time there in the playground area, which you can find at several area locales for less, if not free. Definitely not a more than once kind of place, and sadly, I'm still on the fence about that. Also of note: it's very small. You could hit everything in two hours flat.

Been going to Zarda's since I was a little kid. One of the rare places my whole family can agree on...hooked plenty of friends over the years, too!

Just amazingly poor service. 45 minute wait after order, paying was a nightmare. I won't ever return.
