Star S2 orbits the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. This is cool enough, but it will get within 120 astronomical units (distance of the Earth to the Sun) of the black hole and be traveling 17 million miles per hour. Too bad any planets there would likely be ripped away and vaporized, that would probably be an interesting show to watch.... remotely. 
The new GRAVITY instrument will allow scientists to closely study the star, S2.

This is what happens to half a pound of bacon when two hungry boys get ahold of it after school. It was on the plate. Half an avocado and some chunks of bell pepper met the same fate. The bacon was going to go into the ice cream... Oh well.

Just a few of the +Tesla​ fans out and about this morning. The list was over 400 by 10am and stretched down the block and probably another block or more beyond that. I would have though 40-50 maybe. I was wrong!

I love these quotes: "I am convinced if I was behind the wheel, I would have hit him.", referring to a cyclist going the wrong way who swerved in front of the car, which recognized him and stopped.

And on some of the weird things, "naked people who jumped on the hood of car (in Austin, of course)". I like that it apparently fits our reputation and that "people" is plural. 
“We don’t like our car bumping into things,” said Chris Urmson, head of Google’s self-driving project, addressing the February 14 incident where Google’s car struck a bus. “This was a tough day for us.”

Can't drive in snow, safer for salmoning idiots to be persistently antisocial...not sure if this is a good thing.

This is awesome. But wrong photo, it should be of Ironman. You know Elon Musk wants a space suit that looks like Ironman complete with mini-Draco thrusters installed in the boots so he can hop around Mars. Heck, how doesn't?
Marvel and DC movie legend Jose Fernandez will get to show off his design within a year.

Fascinating, I had no idea the wheels are designed as turbines to reduce drag. That's the sort of tuning I hear about in Formula 1 and exotic road cars, and maybe everyone does it, but I hadn't realized it would be significant enough in a regular road car. 
Tesla recently confirmed that the base version of the Model 3 will be able to travel over 215 miles on a single charge with a battery pack “smaller than 60 kWh”. The relatively small ba…

For those of you who don't want Windows 10 or just don't want Microsoft to do it automatically for you, this is a really nice, simple tool for setting the group policy settings which corporate IT departments can use to prevent it.

I very much tend to agree with this take on improving the economy, which runs counter to many of the proposals put forth by all of the presidential candidates. And this isn't their unique take. Which makes me wonder how much the candidates just don't understand economics and, given they have plenty of advisors, just offer what people want to hear and may or may not do the right thing if elected?

Any strong C++ developers out there looking to work on a brand new, massively distributed design tool? We could use several people on my team. It's an extremely cool project for anyone who likes to try to figure out how to make software go faster. The result is a heavy mix of software architecture, hardware-level optimization, and algorithmic challenges.

Feel free to forward or ping me with questions.

Around election season I always like watching the electronic markets (Iowa Electronic Market, iPredict) to see how they compare to the polls. Since it is people putting in real money, they tend to be more accurate than polls and definitely more than pundits.

So, I was rather surprised to see this in the Washington Post:

The behemoth Koch operation — which aims to spend almost $900 million before the November elections — is now considering abandoning Trump as a nominee and focusing its resources on behalf of GOP congressional candidates.

"Considering" and "has" are two very different things, but just the fact that it's a discussion item is amazing. $900M is a massive "opinion market"...

This is jaw dropping. The prior presidential candidate completely trashes his own party's likely candidate. And then, the candidate before him, McCain, says "I agree". So now the last two Republican candidates, plus Meg Whitman (on Christie's campaign team), a couple of Senators, and the leader of the House have all bashed Trump hard.

What's amazing is, it seems like Romney at least is saying it would be better to have Hillary (or conceivably Bernie) as president than Trump. I say this because if Tump really is nominated, you know a democratic PAC is going to saturate the media with quotes from all of the republican leadership saying Trump isn't fit to be president. And they must know this.

Maybe Romney really does feel this way and is putting his better judgement ahead of party loyalty? If so, kudos.

This is going to be an entertaining, if possibly terrifying, year...

Former U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney attacked 2016 Republican front-runner Donald Trump as “a fraud” on Thursday and urged primary voters to keep the outspoken New York billionaire from getting the nomination, paving the way for possible horse trading at a party convention in July.

Romney was always a decent man up to today
he may have a personal opinion of Mr. Trump,
after begging for his support in the past but as
a republican elite he should try to built his party
rather than tear it down...

Rodrigo is very profession, courteous, and easy to work with. He responds quickly to voice or text messages and shows up when he says he will. We met him 4-5 years ago when he was working on a neighbor's house and call him at their recommendation. He's trimmed the trees several times since then. Just yesterday we had lightning hit a tree and he made time to come out today to haul everything off.

The rock climbing area is very nice, good place to climb with the kids. The bowling is good, the games are mostly overpriced and the food is surprisingly awful. Mostly we climb and go somewhere else close by for food.

Probably the best "normal priced" burger in town. Having Phil's and Amy's ice creams next door is a great match. Only reason for taking one star off is lack of any side salad option instead of just fries.

Good selection of tasty sandwiches, and the baked goods are far too tempting. There is outside seating, though typical strip-mall fare next to the parking lot.
