#GoogleCrossword solved in 1:07:14
Which seems like a lower time than it should be, but I kept going back to it in between tasks so I'm probably getting skewed by the total time i was at my desk.

This is the most important thing you will watch today, and possibly tomorrow.

I'm impressed by next.data.gov . The thinking behind it is explained on the White House blog.  Open government data is a huge foundation for private sector businesses, and a great example of what I've called government as a platform. The new site really begins to highlight this point.
Today, we’re excited to share a sneak preview of a new design for Data.gov, called Next.Data.gov. The upgrade builds on the President’s May 2013 Open Data Executive Order that aims to fuse open-data practices into the Federal Government’s DNA. Next.Data.gov is far from complete (think of it as a very early beta), but we couldn’t wait to share our design approach – knowing that we need your help to make it even better.

Well, look at who showed up in my dad's girlfriend's sister's backyard!  The best way to finish getting a tour of a new property is finding a fawn right in the middle of it.

Made of awesome!  A lot of random memories from childhood have this song playing in the background and this is a fabulous metal tribute that I will be revisiting often for a smile.

Today, as we wish each other a Happy New Year, let us determine to be more sincere, compassionate, warm-hearted human beings, trying to make our world a more equal place. That way we'll actually make it a happy year.

One of the best discussions of depression I have seen in a long time.

I'm not far off from rewriting my entire thesis from the satirical viewpoint of a GM... "The quest, then, was to determine what theory of sexism best described the social milieu our characters faced."

(Narrated by Ron Perlman) Writing.  Writing never changes.
The Romans wrote to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for writing about conquest. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into a publisher's mad nightmare.

But writing never changes.

In the 21st century, war was still waged over the authors that could be acquired. Only this time, the spoils of writing were also its weapons: Semicolons and Split Infinitives. For these bits of syntax, China would invade Alaska, the US would annex Canada, and the European Commonwealth would dissolve into quarreling, bickering nation-states, bent on controlling the last remaining authors on Earth.

In 2077, the storm of redundant procedural crime shows and non-historical fantasy dramas had come again. In two brief hours, most of the planet was reduced to cinders. And from the ashes of pedantic devastation, a new civilization would struggle to find narration.

A few were able to reach the relative safety of the large underground Libraries. Your family was part of that group that entered Library Thirteen. Imprisoned safely behind the large reference section, under a mountain of genre classics, a generation has lived without knowledge of the outside world.

Life in the Library is about to change.

So... maybe things have dramatically changed since the majority of reviews were submitted. My experience at this DMV office was excellent. I arrived in the morning at about 9:30am prepped not just with the documents I needed to get my car titled/registered and an Oregon drivers license but with multiple books so that I would be able to endure what I expected to be the usual grinding DMV trial of patience. Instead of an endurance trial I got serviced quite quickly; within a 1/2 hour. Driver's license part of my trip went quickly and smoothly. Registering the car hit a hiccup because I misread exemptions for DEQ emissions testing. Before I went to the DEQ station I was given what amounted to a "free pass" that let me skip to the head of the line once I completed that testing if I came back the same day, which I did. Including travel time across town for emissions testing and back the whole process took between an hour and an hour and a half. All staff members I spoke with were friendly and professional. To my understanding they give staff fairly frequent short breaks. If that is true it definitely helps keep staff alert to detail and in a good mood. The experience might be different once you hit the later hours of the day, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well this DMV trip went.

Probably the best dental practice I have been to. I was a brand new patient who had to go in because a piece broke off of a molar (good question as to why). I was offered an appointment the next day, but as I was not in any pain I delayed a couple of days to get an appointment that would also include a full check-up and cleaning. The dental hygienist who worked on my cleaning was gentle. There was certainly a small bit of pain but I actually felt like my teeth were being cleaned rather than being attacked. The hygienist, a standard part of this practice, also took time to explain how they rate gum health and also filled in some other information about dentistry and mouth health that made the process both easy and left me with some advice for taking care of my mouth. Dr. Nevills worked on a tooth that a small piece had broken off of. He fixed it with a filling and never tried to push anything more expensive. His drill work demonstrated where the rest of the staff got the ability to do good work without unnecessary pain. The final price tag was also lower than I expected, especially as someone who lacks any dental insurance. I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for regular or immediate needs dental care.
