There always seem to be conflicts between cyclists and drivers here in Metro Vancouver. A lot of it is lack of respect for other users of the road. This particular article focuses on a particular group of cyclists who ride along River Road in Richmond.

+Patrick Elliott-Brennan They did interview some other cyclists who did say that the proper thing to do was for the last rider to call out, "car back" and have the pack ride single file. It's good that they showed good cyclists as well.

Just barely managed to get all of the cards and parts of Blood Bowl Team Manager plus both expansions into the base game box.

Four of the deck boxes each contain all player cards for one league. One deck box contains all highlights. One deck box contains all upgrade and penalty cards. Stadium cards are loose in the box under the scoreboards. The remaining chits and dice are in baggies except for the ref which is loose. Base set balls and cards that were replaced with the Sudden Death expansion are in the Sudden Death box as I no longer use them.

This is an excellent article about the recent event where Facebook deleted a historical photo. Facebook do have certain standards on what users can post on that platform. A photo being historical does not necessarily mean that it should be given an exception, should it? Have a read though this article. It is quite long, but it does cover the issue quite well.
 
And... here we go: Facebook Versus Aftenposten: We Are Fighting the Wrong War: http://www.baekdal.com/analysis/facebook-versus-aftenposten-we-are-fighting-the-wrong-war
We need to talk about what happened last week between Aftenposten in Norway and Facebook. You have probably already heard the story. Facebook deleted one of Aftenposten's posts when it contained an image of a naked child fleeing from napalm bombs.

Playing Mansions of Madness last night. Casted the wither spell and rolled 5 successes on 5 dice. No clue tokens required.

Pack it away and get rid of it quickly! You're messing around with something not of this world.

English spelling may not be optimal, but it's a lot easier than Chinese.

It's official, English spelling is not 'optimal': University of Alberta study https://www.metronews.ca/news/edmonton/2016/08/24/english-spelling-not-optimal-say-u-of-a-computer-scientists.html

This has been brought to my attention. Snowden recommends not using Allo because of surveillance.
Google Allo, the new “smart” chat app launched on Wednesday, is ‘dangerous’ and should be avoided, according to whistleblower Edward Snowden.

This morning before I left for work, I got a notification that Android N was available. This was just after I got a system update. I updated after waking up. As the Android N update was 1GB in size, I decided to wait until I got home. After returning home tonight, the notification for the Android N was no longer in my notifications. I checked for an update and it said there was none.

So, did this happen to anyone else? I have the Nexus 6P unlocked in Canada. I heard that Google pulled the original update due to issues. Were there new issues discovered today?

I drink Gatorade because I hate the taste of plain water when I'm exercising. The flavour helps me drink it. I've been drinking it for a quarter century now whenever I exercise.
Florida is hot and sticky in late summer, when young men are playing football at the University of Florida and a lot of other southern schools.

What constitutes "plain water"? Tap water? Mass-market bottled water? If so, try some good filtered water from a reputable local supplier. I can't stand tap water, but purified water from a competent reverse osmosis vendor is cheaper, healthier, and better tasting than sports drinks.

My favourite supplier near White Rock is Aqua Blue:
