I am reasonably certain the "county password inspector" approach would work.
Hey geeks! We're going to be releasing episodes of Marque and James' "Hand To Mouth" on the SMBC Theater channel now! Are you broke? Do you not know how to cook? Would you like to learn along with some filthy jokes? (PS: Thanks to everyone who turned out last night to the talk at CMU.

Getting ready for bed, got hit with a powerful veto.

Me: "Put on your pajamas."
Athena: "Parents are not allowed to yell."
Me: "I'm not yelling, but I already did a count down so the next step is time out. Put on your PJs."
Athena: "Parents are not allowed to yell, only kids. And babies, because they don't know how to talk. Do you know who said that? Jesus. And, Obama."
Me: "..."
Athena: "...and Santa."

A long time ago - probably around 2001 - I was walking past a big bank office in Cleveland when I noticed a monitor festooned with post-it notes of usernames and passwords, facing the street-level window.

Fast forward 14 years and it's the same problem, only with more "windows" to peak through.
 
"Post-it note on wall revealed network's passwords for YouTube, Instagram."

I feel almost irresponsible sharing this.

I don't think the people trying to designate this parking lot as a historical landmark are motivated by a passion for history, but rather a passion for keeping people from parking on the street by their expensive houses. I've never been to this storied parking lot, so maybe I'm wrong.

If this works in DC, though, expect to see it all over the Bay Area here in California. 
A developer wants to build on a parking lot in Spring Valley. Not so fast, says some neighbors: That parking lot is an historic landmark.

Whoa... The 11-month-old was not only signing for "more" at dinner today, but he said "thank you" very clearly several times.

If it weren't for the fact that he is constantly trying to aspirate his sister's Legos, I would call him a genius!

This is a really nice rundown of a large spam network on Twitter:

http://www.symantec.com/connect/blogs/green-coffee-and-spam-elaborate-spam-operation-twitter-uses-nearly-750000-accounts

I especially like their classification of fake accounts into Eggs, Parrots and Mockingbirds.  Eggs don't do anything yet, and mostly inflate follower counts;  Parrots copy real tweets from real users so they look like real accounts; and Mockingbirds impersonate celebrities and brands.  Spam is not longer a game of just volume and gibberish, the smarter spammers will create different kinds of accounts, websites, bots, etc. to take advantage of the structure of the systems they are trying to spam.

If you've ever wondered what kind of work my teams do at Google, this isn't too far off.

This article is a pretty good read, if you can stop scrolling through to watch the cute animations long enough to read it.
