Don't use regular silverware to portion out medicine, especially for kids.  The actual capacity of your silverware may not bear any relation to the commonly accepted measurements of teaspoons and tablespoons, leading to overdoses (or underdoses).
 
Pediatricians Say Using Teaspoons & Tablespoons For Kids' Medicine Leads To Overdoses

While some parents pull out actual measuring spoons when pouring out a teaspoon or tablespoon of their kids’ medications, many just resort to employing the same utensils they use for family meals. But while you might use a spoon for tea, that doesn’t mean…

Rest in peace, Mr. Nimoy, and thank you for all you gave us.  The world is poorer for your absence.
 
Kaaaaaaahhhhhnnnnn!
In addition to acting, Mr. Nimoy directed films; published poetry, autobiographies and books of photography; and recorded music.

From the preview, you might think, oh, that's the Pillars of Creation, I've seen that before.

Not like this, you haven't!
Remember the “Pillars of Creation,” the star-forming nursery in the heart of the Eagle Nebula? You’ve never seen it like…

Earlier today, I mentioned in a post the idea of ISPs giving priority to certain political viewpoints via prioritization of news organizations likely to hold those viewpoints.  A timely mention; Verizon is one of the industry backers of SugarString, a tech news site.. which forbids stories about Net Neutrality or NSA spying, both of which Verizon is on the wrong side of.  So now, all Verizon has to do is prioritize its own news site and allow traffic to the others to bog down.

You know, I love John Oliver; his bits are almost always funny and cut to the heart of an issue.  But even he isn't above cutting loose and just being silly sometimes.. LMAO.  Needed this laugh.
A "salmon cannon" has been deployed in Washington state to launch fish safely over a hydroelectric dam, and it's giving John Oliver hope for the future. If we can use the cannon to fix the salmon-spawning process (that we broke in the first place, but whatever), who knows what else we can achieve with this wondrous invention?

These are fantastic.  A pet adoption agency decided to make some infomercials for adoption, pushing dogs and cats as solutions to annoying life problems like cleaning up spilled food and oversleeping.  "Mee-WOW!"  LMAO.
Pet owners know that domestic animals have many uses around the home. Thousands of years ago, that's why we welcomed them into our dwellings in the first place, and we've come to appreciate them fo...

Any Google Plus wizards want to help me out?  I have three circles that I want every post to be shared with by default.  If, for example, I removed one of those for one post, the next time I went to post something, I would add it back in, and G+ would return to those three as the default.  Well, apparently last time I did that, something got stuck, and now every time I post, I have to add that third circle back in.  WTF, G+?

I just sent 'feedback' describing the issue.  Open a new post with the wrong circle default, then mouse over 'home' on the upper left, click 'feedback' at the very bottom, describe the issue, highlight the 'To:' box with the wrong circles in it, black out any personal info you want to.

Mustang Owner Reunited With Car Stolen In 1986 After Someone Finally Tried To Register It

Buying your first car is a memory that forever sticks in the brain — especially if that happy glow is short-lived when someone steals it. A California woman who bought her very first car back in 1985 with a little help from her late father only to have it…

Speaking of Oliver, here he is skewering state lotteries.  I've always known they're a stupidity tax, but on top of the facts that it's addictive, that winning is ridiculously rare, that winners often get themselves into trouble, and (like the Miss America pageant, which he also skewers) that the amount of money paid out of Lottery funds for charitable purposes is tiny compared to the amount of emphasis those charitable purposes get in their ads, Hollywood accounting comes into play: When lotteries provide additional money for education, for example, the state often takes away the money that was there in the first place.  Education gets $100 million from the lottery?  Well, that's $100 million in other money that can be taken away from education to provide tax breaks!  F**k you, state lawmakers.
You don't need John Oliver to tell you that state lotteries—or, as your mom calls them, "the stupidity tax"—are a bad deal, but you may not have realized the extent to which they suck.

I hope they told him "Today, the creators of other traffic have paid to be prioritized over yours, so you won't be going to work."
Protesters held a banner across Tom Wheeler's driveway that read “Save the Internet.”
