'The perceived danger of sharks may be a little skewed. You're statistically more likely to die from a falling coconut, lightning, icicles, vending machines and rollercoasters than from a shark attack.' Via +Curiosity  #SharkWeek

I believe in tolerance. I believe in your right to worship as you choose, if you so choose to do; however, I also believe that places of worship should be taxed accordingly. And these are some pretty shocking statistics.

Developing Software in a Hostile Environment. Ted Unangst. tedu@openbsd.org. intro. What's this talk about and who is it for? I'll begin by referencing a series of talks that Theo has given over the years regarding exploit mitigation. What it is, how it works, why you want it.

Reminds me of the 'Only  lovers left alive' line where 

“Have the water wars started yet,” asks Eve. “Or is it still about the oil?” .
