No, this isn't The Onion. But headline should read, "Public 'Unsurprised' at Police Refusal to Hire Intelligent Candidates."
A man whose bid to become a police officer was rejected after he scored too high on an intelligence test has lost an appeal in his federal lawsuit against the city. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld a lower court’s decision that the city did not discriminate against...

Pure genius.
 
Sweet Bob Dobbs, this is funny. It reads like the mumbling of an angry programmer inheriting someones code.

Science!
 
Scientists have cloned stem cells from two adult patients 
A team of scientists have used cloning methods to produce stem cells from the skin cells of adult patients. To do this, researchers extracted DNA from the cells of two adult males, aged 35 and 75....

Weigh in: Are you bothered that +American Express appears not to be hashing user passwords?
 
+American Express are you kidding? Is this a joke? You shouldn't care about the contents of your users' passwords. If you do, you're doing it wrong. If you can log them in with a case-variant version of the same password, you're really doing it wrong. This is downright terrifying.

Cross this with Snowden's leaks detailing governmental infiltration of Internet discussion spaces to engage in psychological operations and shape public consent, and the world through your screen starts to feel even creepier.

Isn't that right, Government Opinion-Shaping Bot?
 
A user would never mistake Sgt. Star for human—that's just not how the chatbot was designed. That can’t necessarily be said for other government bots. Military, law enforcement and intelligence agencies have employed virtual people capable of interacting with and surveilling the public on a massive scale, and every answer raises many, many more questions.
You Asked: Tell us all your secrets. SGT STAR: Good question. I'm not sure how to answer that. Please try rewording your question. I understand simple questions best. You Asked: In that case, tell us everything. SGT STAR: That is a good question, however, I am not positive that I understand what you're asking. Try rephrasing your question. I understand simple questions best.

Open question: Why is it socially acceptable to engage with someone and question their beliefs in almost all areas except for religion?

People used to kill you for that just a few hundred years ago.  It's probably innate to us now not to mention it.

One more set of shackles to break free from.

Headline should read: Cop shoots himself while attempting to kill friendly dog; public applauds, turns up "NWA." (h/t +Eric Hansen)
 
This story speaks for itself, glad the dog is OK.

Shame; this diminishes the network of a very useful and important tool.
To preserve security of network, Tor Project rejects hundreds of unpatched relays.

Introduction
By day, I'm a mild-mannered software developer transitioning into a role as data scientist, applying my mathematical background and extensive computer science experience to bring greater entropy to the world (preferably happy entropy). I deal in machine learning algorithms, Java, .NET (primarily C#), SQL, and web technologies like JSON, node.js, and AngularJS.

At night, I revel in a strange mixture of photography, health and fitness, politics, music, film, and, of course, pizza.

I love Columbus, Ohio, but my heart lives in New York City.

I love to talk, so say hello! This goes especially for those of you who add me who I don't already know.

This tucked-away gun shop in Westerville is nondescript on the outside and small on the inside. But don't let that fool you! They have a good selection of products inside at a great price, and the staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and happy to help you with any questions or needs you may have. The on-site gunsmith is a nice touch, too. Not something you'll find at bigger stores or lesser small shops. Definitely check it out.

The rooms in this "older" feeling hotel (not in a good way) are what a realtor would describe as "cozy," or as regular people would put it, "a little small for a medium-sized hamster." That's okay though, because you can escape to your bathroom, which will feature amenities like other people's hair, and towels with blood stains on them, or cozy up on your ancient bed to enjoy paying a lot of money for incredibly slow Internet access. (Don't worry about the mess the maids leave in the bathroom -- they'll have it cleaned up for you sometime by the end of the following night.) Should you survive the creaking and wobbling elevator ride downstairs, you can enjoy amenities such as a bar without any beers on tap, a restaurant serving only the greasiest undercooked hamburgers, and valet parking that is definitely somewhere. Your car is nice and safe because no one else will be able to find where it is, either! The art deco is cool, and the architecture is admirable from outside. Then you step indoors and realize that you will want to stay elsewhere. At least there aren't bed bugs... I think.

Relax. People watch. Sit back, listen to the bustle of your fellow humans, and take it in. This is New York City, enjoying life!

Tasty, fast, reasonably priced, friendly, and surprisingly elegant for a casual fusion Asian restaurant.

This quintessentially New York bagel shop serves up huge, fresh bagels complemented by their own unique and delicious cream cheeses and hot, delicious coffee. Get in line, pick what you want, order, and move on to pay for your goods! Breakfast will set you back about $5-10 a person.
