Interesting that trying peanuts early might reduce the allergy sensitivity to it.

However, I was still surprised to read: "Children under five should not eat whole peanuts, because of the risk of choking"

Under 5?!  A three year old can easily crunch through peanuts!

Interesting study.  For ages 3 and up it seems to be dominated by hard candy, other candy, non-hot-dog meat & bone.  For 5+, next up is "other foods", then fruits & vegetables (grapes?), then nuts.

It's true that at the end of the day it's about picking a threshold, and it's true that we're notoriously bad at assessing risk... however the linked data seems consistent with my initial reaction that singling out peanuts beyond 3 years old is unwarranted.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting the results because "fruits & vegetables" includes grapes which are basically death traps when whole... but then, they are equivalently death traps for 5+ as well.

Today was a lesson for me in not judging others.

When I was a Googler, I would be really offended seeing people abusing the GBikes when I saw them going home or coming in to work on them (since they're supposed to remain on the campus).

A few days ago, I happened upon two GBikes parked at the CalTrain station late at night (which is WAY out of their allowed area), so I rescued one of them.  When I was riding it in to Google this morning (completing my rescue), I realized that had I seen myself riding the bike in, I would have assumed that I was abusing them and been really offended.

Small reminder of how easy it is to dismiss someone else's context.

One step down, two to go. Big thanks to the city for bringing Mountain View one step closer to Google Fiber.

I don't think I've ever put that much thought into sea level before. My mind is kind of blown by this.

This is a fascinating talk from 2011 on how money corrupts politics.

This is totally amazing.  Especially good timing, too, with Jason so interested in the Apollo 11 stuff right now!

It's easy to forget how giant it is.  Here's a picture of people standing next to one of the 5 engines: http://arstechnica.com/science/2013/01/saturn-v-moon-rocket-engine-firing-again-after-40-years-sort-of/.
