I saw a blog post the other day headlined something like "Legends of Tomorrow: What Works and What Doesn't." I didn't read it since I hadn't caught the premier yet. Now that I have, here's my guess on what it must have said:

What Works

The meta-comedy of seeing Rory playing a surly Time Lord is amusing... For about five seconds.

What Doesn't

Literally. Everything. Else.

It's official: There will never be another season of Doctor Who helmed by Steven Moffat.

Par-TAY!

#doctorwho #tv #moffatsucks +Josh Wanisko​
Moffat leaving the hit sci-fi show means "Doctor Who" will only air a Christmas special in 2016 as the BBC moves its tenth season to 2017. "Broadchurch" writer and producer Chris Chibnall will then be taking over the Tardis in 2018.

TL;DR: The lottery is an unofficial tax on the poor and the desperate, that primarily benefits the rich and the greedy. Because that's just how we Americans roll.

Don't be fooled: lotteries are rigged against everyone.

Decide where you think the line should be – and keep others from crossing it. Get smart on government surveillance.

Why a bunch of Silicon Valley investors are suddenly interested in universal basic income. Because other studies address the question of whether a basic income discourages people from going out and getting a job, but if all the jobs are going to be automated, that ceases to be an interesting question. The question then is whether people will become couch potatoes or whether they will take the initiative to do creative things.

They finally cast Shadow for the TV version of American Gods. And... he's actually not white.
In the midst of a larger Hollywood conversation about whitewashing, American Gods nails it.

Adding style to maps with neural nets (Image is the input not the result)

This is pretty awesome. It turns out you can use a real world map to style your rough illustrated map, and create an incredible result. involves downloading a git repo with some fairly punchy dependencies, but the results are great.

I've been doing a lot of experimenting with neural-style the last month. I think I've discovered a few exciting applications of the technique that I haven't seen anyone else do yet. The true power of this algorithm really shines when you can see concrete examples.

My stylist was a girl with poofy pink hair and an undercut. I told her I wanted my shaggy hair cut short, but not so short as to show scalp. She set the clippers to number 6 and trimmed the back and sides. After a quick wash, she took scissors to the top and left it several inches longer than the rest of the hair. At the time I thought it looked okay, if not quite what I had asked for, so I deemed it good enough. However, after going home and getting a better look at it, I realized that it was very uneven. So, for the same price I had paid for one visit to this mall salon, I bought a pair of clippers at the store, and had my wife even things out. Now, I'm not sure if this was the absolute first time she'd ever cut hair, but it was definitely the first time she'd ever used clippers. The result? A haircut that was actually even. It looked way better than what the so-called "professional" at Mia & Maxx had done. If you need a simple, short cut, you'd be better off investing in a good pair of clippers than going to Mia & Maxx. And since they couldn't even do a competent job of something that basic, I wouldn't even consider them for anything more complicated.

The large space with an upscale feel creates a positive first impression, but it doesn't take long before you start noticing little problems: weak coffee and generally mediocre drinks; bland and forgettable decor; awkward furniture that's stuck between normal height and highchairs; large tables spread sparsely through the space are great for groups, but provide limited seating that will fill up fast as soon as this place starts getting busier. It's only real selling points are a pool table and the convenience of being right across the street from the Overture Center parking ramp.

Clean, open, well-lit, decent selection, helpful staff. They have awesome produce and a lot of natural/organic options, and the in-store hot Chinese/Italian/Kitchen/Salad Bar mini-food court is decent quality for what it is. Prices are extremely mixed, and seem to change almost at random; often an item will be 2.99 one day, then increase to 4.99 the next -- and it will sport a "Price Reduction" tag. Still, if you buy their store brands (Hy-Vee or Midwest County Faire) or their produce, you can often get a good deal. Just watch out for certain items (e.g., milk) that are priced ridiculously high.

Sadly, ERC is not what it once was. Their new space is cramped and they now steep tea too hot, resulting in a bitter flavor. If you're looking for a coffee shop downtown, I would recommend Barriques instead.

At the Starbucks inside B&N, while still standing a good ten feet away from the counter and in the midst of a conversation, the cashier actually INTERRUPTED us to try and sell us on lunch items. When we got to the counter to order, he tried to convince us to order larger sizes. When our drinks showed up, they weren't what we ordered. When we finally got the drinks we actually ordered and tasted them, I wanted to spit it out -- the Tazo Green Tea Latte tasted like artificial, mildly sweetened rotten grass. Stay far away from this place.

It's a fast food franchise specializing in sandwiches. A little pricier than other fast food places, and a little healthier, but otherwise no different. If you come here for lunch you probably won't regret it, but you probably will forget it.
