Today I learned that the traditional courtship gifts in Indiana are flowers and meat (via the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt).  

It turns out I've been buying +Jordan Thevenow-Harrison his state-approved gifts all along =D  Whoooooo!

Thanks to an inadvertent comment from +Amy Ellis (who will absolutely hate this idea!), I think I'm going to start developing a math-food themed calendar.  So far, I've got pies on Pi Day and Romanesco on, say, March 1st, when the Roman calendar year began.  So I have 363 days left to cover.  

Suggestions?

When watching police procedurals, I entertain myself by imagining how much better it would be if the gender roles were switched. I wish Hollywood - or more likely, Netflix - would do that already!

Sadly, it looks like the latest procedural with a female lead, "CSI: Cyber," is by all reports I've seen, a dog. Certainly, the previews make it look simply awful.

I haven't watched CSI Las Vegas for a long time, but I remain convinced that they made a big mistake not having Marge Helgenberger take over as lead when Grissom left.

Console updates that are required to go online but are only updating your ability to adjust the size and color of BluRay subtitles: LAME. Also: wtf?

The flight info at my gate is partially incorrect - this 2-hour flight to Chicago will apparently take 8 hours, and it'll be 67 degrees when we arrive.

Way to encourage my already high paranoia about getting on the wrong flight!

You know how you should never read the comments?  Well, at IGN's website, the only thing worse than the comments are their STUPID FREAKIN' ADS.  

Argh.  Cut that crap out, you jerkfaces!

I can understand being upset about advertisements; however, without comments, the only remaining material is that written by editors, which is often inaccurate because of bribing by developer companies.

Do you mean to state that all of the comments should be ignored?

A new library card is enough to make a day for many who enjoy reading.

Brianna Wu is tough and amazing - and it's time for everyone to step up: http://www.bustle.com/articles/63466-im-brianna-wu-and-im-risking-my-life-standing-up-to-gamergate
This weekend, a man wearing a skull mask posted a video on YouTube outlining his plans to murder me. I know his real name. I documented it and sent it to law enforcement, praying something is finally done. I have received these death threats and 43 others in the last five months.  This experience
