So, a traffic pylon in New Mexico tried to kill my family today. Luckily my family was unharmed.

One of these I brought for my students during the final exam. The other they brought for me.

Can you guess which is which?

I hate you hardware manufacturers. I just spent two hours debugging a problem with my TV and the ultimate fix was to unplug it and plug it back in. This is bullshit.

Evidently there is state that survives both power cycling and the software 'factory reset'. But if you just unplug the TV for a bit then the HDMI audio feed to the tuner magically works again.

I hate you #samsung. But at least you aren't every other TV manufacturer out there.

Samsung is famous for this.  My TV HDMI ports suddenly stopped working about 3 months ago.  It was a slow decline losing one port at a time over the course of a month.  Debugged for a while and nothing.  Talked with a friend who had the same Samsung model tv and he said "Oh just unplug it for 10 minutes and plug back in."  Sure enough it worked, but to say I was frustrated would be putting it lightly.

So, heading home from the soccer tournament, got to see a genius LA driver in a Mercedes make a minor lane adjustment.

+Leslie Dickson​ so they're running "tests" but the goal seems to be to justify keeping the crumb rubber.
It’s been nearly a decade since Glendale Unified first installed artificial turf made of ground-up rubber tires. Now, months after an NBC News story revealed possible chemical hazards related to the material, school officials are pondering other options for the district’s fields.

I'm not pleased.  I need to read more and watch the board meetings in question so I can formulate my response.

Eleanor has made at least four trips to the van over the past hour to set up her own camp. First the blankets and pillows, then a box of crackers. Next was water and chair. She won't let me help her with the table.

That's because she's a big girl, and she needs her things just right.

So... Today I purchased 119 fake cell phones for $20. I'm looking for ideas of what I can use them for.

Ideas?

Half dedicated to history and science of nuclear power, half dedicated to cold war history and atomic weapons. Two broken arrows on display was cook too. Takes about two hours, good for a road trip stop, though admission was high, the exhibits were of very good quality.

Food was correct, service was prompt and the tots were not fried in dirty funky tasting oil.
