Now I want to print out a Street View of each turn off my next car trip.
Google Street View has a century-old predecessor.

Every time I go to Union Depot, I discover something new. Today's discoveries were some fascinating art installations.

This seems like the kind of incident that will be the catalyst to regulations being created for drones.
California is aggressively pursuing the people responsible for three recent incidents in which drones interfered with firefighters as they worked to extinguish devastating forest fires. The...

Early retirement sounds very appealing.
Financial independence is about freedom to do your best work, without money getting in the way.

Well, what would you call the state of being where you don't have to work to continue living?

And regardless of clickbaitness, it's a good article, which is why I shared it.

I figured out how to install Windows 10 without waiting in line, and we replaced the coffee table with a hexagonal corner piece.

For some reason I thought that the idea of games being treated as art was a new one. Turns out there was a reason they named the company Electronic Arts back in the 80's.
In 1982, Trip Hawkins founded Electronic Arts on the principle that the makers of video games ought to be treated like creative superstars. Within a few years, that changed. What happened?

Monument Valley has a free set of levels called Ida's Dream! I'm not sure when they released it, but I just found out about it.

Introduction
I am a nerd in just about every sense of the word. My closest companions are my computers, I have forgotten more about Star Wars than most people ever know, and I have an addiction to video games.
That said, I still enjoy being outdoors and I have been in the Boy Scouts since 1st grade. I am an Eagle Scout and I have worked at a Cub Scout Camp since 2010.
Bragging rights
I have never lost a game of Star Wars: Trivial Pursuit.

Surprisingly classy for a small town, a surprisingly diverse menu for a small restaurant, and amazingly tasty food! The waitress was friendly, even apologizing for our wait (which was about two minutes, so practically no wait at all.) If I'm in the area again, i will definitely be coming back.

The pizza was filling but not very tasty. Also surprised that a staff member was allowed to wear a political t-shirt.

Adorable little place! Friendly staff, very small-scale. It was stuffy inside (I don't think they had turned on the AC yet), so we ate at the tables out front. The pizza wasn't as filling as I was expecting, but it tasted very good!

There are two factors that determine how much one will enjoy a museum: personal interest in the subject, and the way the information is presented. Vasa earns top marks on both. The whole museum is dedicated to a ship that sank in Stockholm harbor in 1628, and was raised and preserved in the 1970s. The museum is designed masterfully: the ship itself is visible from almost every exhibit, no matter what floor you are on. Every time I thought I had seen all there was, the next floor would surprise me with new information and a new angle from which to see the Vasa.

Great food, knowledgeable and friendly waitress, and a pleasant venue that smells like a campfire.

Relatively small museum, but they manage to pack in a lot of information into the space. The audio tour helps give structure to a visit, and if you have a mobile device it is available for free. We managed to get in free (not sure why, but we suspect it is because we went after 5pm).

Clean, friendly staff, well situated. It is very small (the kitchen in particular is quite cramped) but for the price they charge I can't complain.
