A sample from last night's Ratatat show in Columbus, OH. Was fantastic through and through.

So, Republicans want to protect civil liberty by giving power to local officials to selectively enforce the law based on their personal views and religious beliefs, thereby ensuring that no one's civil liberties will ever actually be protected. #makestotalsense

There technically was a way she could have done this: let her employees sign the licenses.

Despite my not having had the best experience so far with Amazon's Echo search appliance, I keep it because Amazon seems genuinely committed to making it better. For example, Echo now works with Google Calendar (huzzah!) and its search functions have gotten expanded (about time!).

I'll believe Amazon is committed to interoperability instead of a walled garden when I can Chromecast Amazon prime video.

US parents are now weaponizing their baby names. Some of these classy names are Pistol, Mace, Blade, Saw, and Dagger. You won't believe some of the other ones.

Go get your inner sci-fi brick nerd on, folks.
If you’ve been following our coverage of what Lego has in store for the new Star Wars movie, today’s reveal probably doesn’t bring too many surprises. But at least we now have official pricing info.

So damn expensive though.. I mean I know I'm going to get some of them but still definitely gouging the older generation with disposable income and the need to relive childhood nostalgia. But still, absolutely can't wait to put together the Millennium Falcon

There once was this bigoted clerk.
At gay marriage, she just went berserk.
The judge said, "Contempt!
You are not exempt.
Stay in jail 'til you'll go back to work."

"Gay marriage is legal yet they dont respect this women for standing up for what she believes in."

That sentence doesn't seem ironic at all to you? "Standing up for what she believes in" means (a) breaking the law, and (b) violating other people's civil rights, yet you want the people whose civil rights are being trampled to somehow respect their oppressor?? That is insane.

Whoever is running the board for Fine Animals (opening act) is an idiot. They have it about 20% louder than the sound system can actually handle, so distortion drowns out any actual music that might be happening. But, after 5 of their songs, I'm thinking that actually might not be a bad thing.

California Student Suspended for Boycotting the Pledge of Allegiance
http://thehumanist.com/commentary/liberty-and-justice-for-all

Let's contrast what this student did -- exercising his freedom of speech and religion -- with what Kim Davis did -- violating federal and state law and breaching citizens' civil right by imposing her beliefs on them.

This kid basically said, "no, I don't want to say the Pledge of Allegiance" and remained seated. By doing so, he caused no harm to anyone -- everyone else remained free to behave however they preferred -- but got suspended anyway (unjustly, IMO).

Kim Davis, however, violated not only federal law, but the US Supreme Court, by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. She limited their exercise of their personal liberties AND failed to fulfill the duties of her elected office. Her ability to exercise her faith stops at not getting gay married; preventing others from marrying isn't religious freedom, it's religious oppression.

Introduction
Engineer → dot-com startup CEO → PhD → business professor & healthcare operations researcher. Unapologetic technophile. Affable skeptic. INTJ. Husband and dad. 

What you'll mostly see me discussing is technology, sociopolitical issues, business/industry, kids/family, and various hobbies (science, photography, cars, sports, etc.).

Disclaimer: Nobody I work for, with, or near has anything to do with my opinions or posts; these thoughts are mine alone. My work/professional Google account can be found elsewhere.

The following mini-autobiography should be sung to the tune of The Beverly Hillbillies theme song:

Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Craig
He started out life as just a tiny egg.
Grew up loving science and technology.
So he went off to college saying "engineering's for me!"

Mechanical, that is. Physics tests. Sausage fests.

Well after not too long, Craig's bored by his work.
Kinfolk said, "Tedium makes you beserk;
Academia is the place you otta be!"
So he headed to Carolina and got his Ph.D.

Business, that is. Operations. Management.

So now Craig's a prof at a university.
Educating his students all about efficiency.
He got tenure so he'll be there til he dies.
Or at least until he wins a Nobel Prize.

Not gonna happen. Very unlikely. P<<.001.

I want to like this place since it's right down the street, but I've never really enjoyed going there. The food is only so-so (at least the things I've tried, which are what the wait staff tend to recommend, like the fish and chips); no one in my family prefers their food. While the beer selection is decent, I've never found the service to be more than passable. It's nice to be able to sit outside and have a beer right on Hyde Park Square, but that seems to be about the extent of this C&B's attraction.

It's impossible to cram more childhood delights in one tiny store than they do at Patty's. Shave ice, ice cream (soft serve), a huge variety of candies, a wall of Jelly Bellies, and more different kinds of popcorn than you can shake a stick at. Definitely stop in and visit...you'll walk out with something delicious.

Wild Ginger is a mid-scale dining experience. Cloth napkins and attentive table service accompany high-quality Thai fare and sushi (or, alternately, Japanese hibachi). The Thai selection is excellent, with dishes being both generous and tasty (although inconsistently spiced...a minor quibble). Sushi is excellently prepared and delicious, with a variety of rolls and sashimi to choose from. The hibachi experience is great for groups, but plan on at least an hour for the entire thing...90 minutes is safer. Prices are pretty reasonable, IMO, and they offer a 10% food discount if you pay with cash. We are regulars there, and they offer consistently good service and food to keep us coming back.

Like stepping back in time to a soda shop from the 1920s. Wonderful ice cream, fantastic candies, and an unparalleled atmosphere. Should be a must-visit place on anyone's list.

It's your basic neighborhood tavern. And that's a good thing. Unpretentious and generally good-tasting food served quickly and at reasonable prices, plus a terrific bar if that's more your scene. Friendly, competent wait staff is the norm. Outdoor dining is a bonus on nice days. Known for their hamburgers (which are quite good). It's not elegant, but it's quite satisfying. Good for kids, adults, and groups, but expect a wait on weekend evenings. Parking in the lot behind or across the street is pretty convenient.

When I had my Subaru, TIC was THE place to go for service and mod advice & parts, and I heard the same thing from BMW & Mini Cooper owners, too. Their new shop (as of mid-2014) next to I-71 is incredible! Great guys, very knowledgeable, and work hard to make sure their customers get the results they want.

Marion's is my favorite pizza, and it's not an uninformed opinion. While I can't argue that it should be yours as well -- we all have different tastes after all -- I hope you'll give it a try. Marion's is classic Dayton-style pizza: cracker-thin crust topped with sauce, cheese, and toppings, in that order. They're particularly known for their sausage, which is finely ground. The restaurants themselves are a bit anachronistic, with separate walk-up counters for ordering food and drinks. No tipping is permitted and it's generally inexpensive. Seating can easily accommodate large parties, so you'll see lots of sports teams and family celebrations there. Give it a try...you may end up loving it like several of my friends have.
