Erik, how do I remove a listing from skepticsonthe.net? I have tried several times requesting this from the site itself with absolutely no response. Thanks.

Sad to hear of +Ned Vizzini's passing. I met him at SXSW in 2011 and he was so awesome, chatting with me for quite a while despite the fact that at the time I had only seen  the movie adaptation of his book It's Kind Of A Funny Story. I will cherish the autographed copy of the book I got that day.

More info on him from Salon:  http://www.salon.com/2013/12/20/its_kind_of_a_funny_story_writer_ned_vizzini_dead_at_32/

It’s that time of year… the in-laws are coming for a tasty Turkey Day dinner. You’re elbow-deep in your turkey, ready to start the stuffing and you need to quickly calculate how many ounces of walnuts are in a cup. This year, rather than stopping midway through to wash your hands and type in a search, you can just speak to your laptop: “Ok Google, how many ounces are in one cup?” Et voila, the cooking can go on. You can also say “Ok Google, set a timer for 30 minutes” so you don’t forget to baste that turkey. To access hands-free search on your laptop, just download the Google Voice Search Hotword extension from the Chrome Web Store: http://goo.gl/PdVTZM (available in English in the U.S.). Hope you have a stress-free Thanksgiving Day feast!

I think I remember hearing about this a while ago but this is the first time I've actually seen it. Google answered my question using information from one of the search results.

Surely nice. Didn't work for me though.

Classic pub style. The inside is dark and cramped, just the way it should be. Don't like that? The deck is large (with large picnic style tables). Food is surprisingly good and not just the standard pub fare (those that's there too).

A trip to Franklin Barbecue isn't just a meal, it's an experience. Waiting in line, talking to the people in front and behind you, it's all part of it. The brisket is simply amazing. Like butter, it just melts in your mouth.

Hip Japanese decor with funk playing, what could be better? A delicious bowl of flavorful broth full of mushrooms, egg and delicious noodles, that's what.
