This is very much worth reading and definitely not specific to Google, even though it happens to be research coming out of Google.

I'm like, wait, how're they doing the font rendering?!?  Because an "A" on the left side is not at all like an "A" on the right side.

reading American Captain (this time with the occasional author notes) and abruptly needed to make a new collection ^ for collecting directions to Carnegie Hall. "There’s really only one answer to this, and it’s so pretentious I feel like I need to apologize to everyone in advance."

Listening to Boulevard of Broken Dreams five or six times before starting the re-read of the first Amber series (solipsism, shadows, and shallow hearts = couldn't possibly be more Amber.)

my name is rare enough that collisions never occur to me although it does usually take me more than one try to type bridge.

Clearly* this song is about a mutant superpower or some such:
"She seems to have an invisible touch yeah
She reaches in, grabs right hold of your heart"
Kitty Pryde phasing through things was as close as I could think of (in terms of female Marvel characters) but really the threatening to remove hearts is much more of a Vision thing.

you should read the article itself, but here's your tl;dr action item
"If you read the news — the politicians posturing over excluding people because of their ancestry, or their nationality, or their religion — and think “no,” you need to say “no” out loud. Right now. And you need to keep saying it. To your friends. To the politicians. As often and as loudly as you can. By the time you see innocent people being persecuted, or imprisoned, or worse, it is already too late."

Thank you for the link to, because Congress's own format for publishing the votes is ridiculous.

There was a video going around at one point that purported to be an interview with Eccleston that included a scene of him with his Star-Trek-obsessed family, in which they were pleading with him to give up on Doctor Who and return to the fold.  It was pretty funny, but I can't find it; all I can find on the subject are actual interviews with him on why he cut ties with the show.  Pfft.

If you know me even slightly or in an on-the-internet way, feel free to say hi; I'll be happy to hear from you.  You might want to remind me how we know each other, because I am a ditz.

Can't place the quote that's under my name?  It's from Swallows and Amazons.

Younger than Ewan McGregor, shorter than Martin Freeman. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Understaffed; super slow at mealtimes. Not the staff's fault.

Surely you already know what to expect from Chuck E. Cheese: noise (on the weekends), a system to make sure kids leave with the adult they came with, expensive food, token-operated toddler rides, a lofted tunnel/slide that kids can climb to (like a fast-food indoor playground), and games of chance-or-skill. The staff at this one care about whether your birthday kid has a good time at the party (which is vital if you have a kid who will be crushed not to catch the 1000 ticket in their new-ish "blows tickets all over your kid" booth), and you are not cleaning up, and no one will lose their kid on your watch, and at the end of the day that's what matters. Would I set foot in it other than for a party? Pretty much no, but your mileage may vary.
