OK Internet, give Google a break.  It's getting really tired of answering this query.  You too would be under a lot of pressure if you had to answer billions of queries a day.

I suppose in the interest of competition, I could get into Blue Origin.

The Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship, as SpaceX calls it, has been christened the "Just Read the Instructions"—and the name is now emblazoned on the landing deck. The moniker is a reference to a ship from the late Iain M. Banks’ novel "The Player of Games." Another drone ship, under construction for launches out of Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, will be dubbed "Of Course I Still Love You," Musk said. 

"These friends of yours are ships."
"Yes," Chamlis said. "Both of them." 
"What are they called?"
"The Of Course I Still Love You and the Just Read the Instructions."
"They’re not warships?"
"With names like that?"
SpaceX is gearing up for a second attempt to land the spent first stage of a Falcon 9 rocket on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean.

Depends on what you're looking for.  I enjoy the picaresque nature of the story: the main character runs around town(s) getting himself into and out of trouble, but he doesn't really care too much about the outcome of his actions.  It's all pretty lighthearted, but there is some pretty decent philosophizing thrown in...of which I can't remember much.  The novel is relatively short, and as the story basically has no cuts or jumps (you know, like Birdman), I was utterly surprised when I hit the last page on my tablet and realized the story was over.

Although hundreds of thousands of girls in Canada have safely taken Gardasil, at least 60 Canadians experienced debilitating illnesses after inoculation.

To promote his charity, Arnold Schwarzenegger pranked fans in West Hollywood as a wax 'Terminator.'

+Thomas Williams We're relatively close to in-home parts replication.  Now we just need to bundle in an object scanner: probably laser scanning for the exterior dimensions, and some sort of x-ray or sonar scan for interior dimensions and hollows.  Eventually I think you'd want to do use some form of spectroscopy to make substance identification easier.  And then you gotta lower the price, but that'll happen.

Sounds like there's a need, so let's just get one of those EOS machines in the office.  Our current 3D printer is busted anyway.

Some days I get the impression that Waze has a sick sense of humor :-/

I brought in a new 50lbs propane tank to fill up, and the entire process went smoothly. I don't think the tank had the 'new' sticker on it which should have alerted the attendant to purge the air, but he figured it out anyway. The service was fast and courteous, and the price is way below average.
