Wow! I never liked the idea of homework for kids -- even up until middle school. I had no idea that extensive research actually backs up my intuition! I haven't yet looked into the underlying research, but this article reinforces my existing beliefs!

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!

Yay!
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.

Hilarious announcer!
More announcers should show this level of enthusiasm.

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

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.
