This is an uncomfortable but brilliant read. Please take some time to digest it and think about it.

What do we expect from a society that has:
-productized sex

And

-thinks that media consumed has no long-term impact on behavior

When you can't connect, Chrome helps you pass the time

Which is probably more productive than smashing fists on the keyboard.
The offline T-rex dinosaur in Google Chrome turns itself into an addictive game when you press the space bar. It works on Chrome mobile too.

Right back atcha, Dave.
David Cameron will "raise concerns" about human rights when he meets Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto later, Downing Street says.

Both Amnesty International's post and the BBC article are kind of weird.  The article makes it sound like the issue is a violent and totalitarian police force, which is true, the documented cases of torture, etc. aren't invented or anything, but there's a bit of context missing, too.  Those deaths include people killed by the narcos, who have been murdering people at an insane rate and who were supposed to be checked by police forces and military forces that were not just corrupt, but working with and for the drug gangs in many cases.

This isn't to defend the government of Mexico by a long shot, but it's not like the issue is just a violent government killing people in the name of a war on illegal drug use.

Yes, absolutely. Fisher here puts his finger on the thing which has bothered me forever. Ahmadinejad said a bunch of crazy things, but he hasn't been in power for years, and it's highly questionable as to whether he was ever taken seriously even in Iran.

Bibi is a gifted speaker, but, well, it's fairly obvious when he's lying.
The idea that Iranian leaders are bent on a suicidal nuclear war has been debunked.

So I've been binge-watching Doctor Who (the rebooted series). I'm up to the end of Season 4. It's totally ridiculous, of course - internally inconsistent, scientifically ludicrous, dei ex machina all over the place... and yet, and yet, the bit in the last episode accompanied by this music practically had me cheering.

Well played, Messrs. Davies and Moffat. Well played.

Totally ridiculous is part of its charm. That and stabbing the viewer in the heart(s).

Very pleasant restaurant in Cupertino; extremely friendly and engaging staff with a lot of hands-on customer service from the owner. The food was delicious - roti with a fresh curry dip (delicious), one of the best chicken satay appetizers I've ever had, and a really spicy, flavoursome curry entree. Numerous flavors of shaved ice desserts; try the mango especially!

Unfortunately it was overcast and raining when I was here, which is a pity as I think that the view is one of Doyle's main attractions. Still; the food was excellent and the service efficient, friendly and polite.
