They are getting so close. Here's some more, directly from Elon's twitter feed:

"Ascent successful. Dragon enroute to Space Station. Rocket landed on droneship, but too hard for survival."

"Looks like Falcon landed fine, but excess lateral velocity caused it to tip over post landing"

Oh goodie, someone stole my credit card number. I'd like to thank all the crooks out there for making the world a worse place to live in. </sarcasm>

At least this is just an inconvenience to me, love the quick detection and zero liability from credit cards in general.

+Arc Riley​ thanks for the reminder. I've actually yet to set up the new auto payments. Most are linked directly to the account but Netflix and other things like that are through the card. I probably would of spaced until Netflix stopped working. Or until my girlfriend calls me wondering why Netflix doesn't work :)

Google engineers finally have an answer to the question that has plagued them for the past day, where have all the cupcakes been coming from? And that answer is Niko, or more accurately a new project testing Google's new "picture to real life tool." The beta project was given a collection of sample photos and left to examine the pictures and order the products seen, but things went deliciously wrong when it reached the never ending animated gif of Niko.

Cupcake companies all over California were suddenly flooded with hundreds of orders for a single cupcake. A line of delivery trucks over a mile long was seen outside of the Mountain View office as employees scrambled to try to figure out what to do with all of the cupcakes. At first they attempted to store them in the cloud, but that doesn't work so well in real life and it started raining the frosting covered treats. Other attempts include a cupcake returned with search results, but the mobile delivery method needs perfecting. The use of cupcake delivering drones was blocked by the FAA, so Google engineers have turned to constructing a rapid fire trebuchet.

The unnamed Google engineer was thankful that it wasn't worse "at least I had SafeSearch turned on." When reached for comment, +Nikolas Moore simply responded "nom nom nom" and +Jennifer Parks could only be heard giggling as she discretely tapped on her Glass.

While most of those in various security agencies have the best interest in the public in mind, it's far too easy for a few bad apples to abuse the system. I'm a firm believer that our government has grown too large and tries to control too much of our lives.
Read our letter to U.S. House and Senate leadership on how our surveillance laws should be changed. Then add your name to show your support. #United4NSAReform

Maybe one day we'll colonize Mars. Or maybe we'll go extinct first. I'd prefer the former.
