+Chet Haase Got any ideas? Have I uncovered an easter egg?
As you can see the background is distorted behind the popup. It only happens on lollipop! Please don't be confused by all the x_ in my style files. I've just de-branded the code. In theme file:

Saw this movie on the weekend. Really enjoyed it and it was an eye opener about life in Saudi Arabia for women and girls.

Kudos to BBC for standing up for human decency over popularity. I loved Top Gear, but there has to be limits in what celebrities can get away with.

I agree with this opinion piece. tldr; Christy Clark does everything she can to dismantle and discredit public education.
It is commendable that your government has balanced three consecutive provincial budgets, but British Columbians (and our children in particular) are hardly better off because of it....

Why doesn't android have sensible default styles? Implementing a vanilla button on lollipop setting min and target api level as 21 still gives buttons that look and behave like gingerbread.  While I'm happy that this nonsense keeps me and my colleagues busy, it's a complete fail for android and one of the main reasons it takes twice as long to create an android app over any other target. Implementing material design should have been as simple as using defaults, not a grab-bag of half-assed third party libraries and overriding styles in values-21.  Google has the design they idea they want but if they want to see if used properly in practice, it'll take more than a design document, it will take a proper API that either forces it upon devs or makes it the default behaviour.
