This is why in security, the permission to remove others from the ACL can be dangerous, even if it is a requirement for other more common threat scenarios.
 
And the super-duper cockpit door security system made it impossible for the pilot to get back in to try stop him. In fact, the co-pilot might not even have attempted this if he knew the pilot could get back in. Great design boys, you treated the pilot as if here were a terrorist! That's our aviation security masterminds at work.
The details emerged after studying the cockpit voice recorder.

Great.... Just when I thought the anti vaccination movement was dying down, it is suddenly a partisan issue.

It's multi-partisan: there are quite a few conservative-identified as well as liberal-identified people who are anti-vax.

Yes, Sears, I really want to buy a garbage disposer and 4 refrigerators with my purchase of a dishwasher installation kit.

Obviously you need food to dirty up the plates. Duh.

It is so bizarre to watch an interview with Steve Ballmer talking about basketball. I saw this man in person as a Microsoft intern.

There has been a recent linguistic trend to add an AAVE twang to mainstream pop music, even if the singer doesn't speak AAVE at home. Think Fergie, Meghan Trainor, or Iggy Azalea.

So that trend has traveled to Korea. Korean... spoken with a AAVE twang. I... I didn't know that was possible. But it's interesting. And weird. And the video, too.

Google has enough JavaScript source code in its repository that it actually makes sense to perform refactoring operations with a distributed map/reduce.  *We map/reduce our source code.* On the one hand, that's kind of insane.  On the other, trying to do it manually would be even more insane.

Oh, we grew the pumpkin used in our own backyard. It was a great experience.

On the one hand, two independent origins of neurons would be surprising because it seems unlikely that the precise sequence of genetic accidents that created neurons could happen more than once. But it also seems unlikely that sponges would lose something as valuable as a neuron. “The only example we know from bilaterians where the nervous system was lost completely is in parasites"

My favorite things about the article:

1. The clip art. If people are very happy while she's pointing at a graph, the most likely thing is she is either telling a joke while pointing at a graph, or she's pointing at a competitor's graph and everyone thinks it's hilarious.

2. The author starts out by saying there will be 11 million meetings on New Year's Day.
 
Let's call off the meeting and get back to work.
In The Wall Street Journal, Andy Kessler writes that Twitter, Apple and other companies are combatting productivity-robbing office sit-downs.

I think they're happy because they're being paid to pose for a photo!

I'm ordering pictures online for my relatives. I'm glad I looked at this blog because it ensured I didn't go with Shutterfly. Shutterfly applies the same annoying "photo MSG" like you see in Best Buy's HDTV section where each TV is screaming to be the brightest even if it means washing out the entire image.
What I looked for: I had 30 photos I needed printed at 4x6. I don’t want auto colour correction. Google took me to Snapfish, Shutterfly, and Mpix. I decided to go with Snapfish because of the many positive reviews (and price). However, when I received the prints, I wasn’t 100% happy. I decided to try the other 2 services as well. I sent for all 30 photos to be printed. So, I got 90 photos to compare. Actually it’s 95 because there’re 5 photos I...

Don't you think she's a bit young to be on pot?

You have to try their Snow dessert -- it's like ice cream meets cotton candy. The food was fine -- I'm guessing Taiwan isn't known for their spicy foods, so next time I go I'll try dishes that aren't supposed to be spicy.

I work for Google, and it's definitely by far the most awesome place you could work! I work on challenging, exciting problems, and am well taken care of (free food, drinks).

I went here once a long time ago when I needed a new tire (urgently!) and they helped me select a good one and get on my way. They were fine with me changing my tire myself right outside the store and using their pump, and they even helped me get the old tire off free of charge (I couldn't deflate it because the valve was full of healing goo). I went there again yesterday to switch the back tire, and the price for that tire even went down!
