This morning, while helping my six year old son with his homework, I suggested the sentence, "One day, she'll be President." His reply, "I don't think girls can be President." I can't tell you how much this breaks my heart.

Thanks +Angela Navarro, for efforts like this, that hopefully will change the narrative about what's possible, for everyone.

(Photo: M. Elsevier Stokmans)It looks like a statue of the Buddha. It is, in a way. But inside, there are the mummified remains of a human body. Tradition holds that they are a Buddhist monk who lived around the year 1100 AD. Last year, the statue left China for the first time. The Drents Museum, an art and history museum in Assen, The Netherlands, arranged for it to be viewed through a CT scanning machine.-via TYWKIWDBI...

+Kyllein MacKellerann​ "The mummified body of the Buddhist master Liuquan, a monk who lived around the year 1100 and who belonged to the Chinese Meditation School, is hidden in this precious reliquary dating from the eleventh or twelfth century."

"The most straightforward piece of reform, pretty much everywhere, is simply to remove all the subsidies for producing or consuming fossil fuels. Last year governments around the world threw $550 billion down that rathole — on everything from holding down the price of petrol in poor countries to encouraging companies to search for oil. By one count, such handouts led to extra consumption that was responsible for 36% of global carbon emissions in 1980-2010.

Falling prices provide an opportunity to rethink this nonsense. Cash-strapped developing countries such as India and Indonesia have bravely begun to cut fuel subsidies, freeing up money to spend on hospitals and schools. But the big oil exporters in the poor world, which tend to be the most egregious subsidisers of domestic fuel prices, have not followed their lead. Venezuela is close to default, yet petrol still costs a few cents a litre in Caracas. And rich countries still underwrite the production of oil and gas. Why should American taxpayers pay for Exxon to find hydrocarbons? All these subsidies should be binned."

Finally drove at Laguna Seca yesterday. Hated it at first, but by the end of the day, I was definitely a fan.

Photos/video don't truly capture the elevation change, but here's a video that tries.

The are a bunch of groups that do (non-race) driving events at Laguna Seca and other Bay Area tracks. The event I went to was put on by Droids&Friends in collaboration with Hooked On Driving. Both orgs run great events and are beginner friendly.

How about bacon? And have the robot actually do the running? That way, you could reverse positions with the robot and enjoy a BLT while um, exercising.

“I think we won’t take SpaceX public for quite a long time,” Musk said. “When we’re doing regular flights to Mars, that might be a good time to go public. But before then, because the long-term goals of SpaceX are really long term – it takes a long time to build a city on Mars – that doesn’t match with the short-term time frame of public shareholders and equity managers.

“That said, we do offer stock options and restricted stock and we do liquidity events every six months. So we have the company valued by an outside firm every six months, and we do stock buybacks every six months. It gets the best of both worlds, where you have stock liquidity but you don’t have massive fluctuations that you have with a public company…. We’ll go public maybe 20 years from now or something like that.”

Elon Musk says SpaceX has filed paperwork for a global satellite Internet project to eventually include some 4,000 satellites and service within 5 years.

"This is what is so admirable — no, not me, dumbass — the overcoming adversity stuff. The staring failure in the face and shoving your middle finger back at it. The people who don’t give a fuck about adversity or failure or embarrassing themselves or shitting the bed a few times. The people who just laugh and then do it anyway. Because they know it’s right. They know it’s more important than them and their own feelings and their own pride and their own needs. They say “Fuck it,” not to everything in life, but rather they say “Fuck it” toeverything unimportant in life. They reserve their fucks for what truly fucking matters. Friends. Family.Purpose. Burritos"
People often say the key to confidence and success in life is to simply “not give a fuck.” Indeed, we often refer to the strongest,…

It really sucks that the Simpson's character that had your name got killed of by the writers. Do you remember when the original Google application was created,I was young but I swear that I have the memory of being there and helping create it . My talent agent (Allison Lynn Harris) was there,too. So I'm pretty sure that it wasn't a dream. I was always kind of a genius . Sorry if I'm annoying you.

Introduction
“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.” – John F. Kennedy, Rice University, Houston, Texas, September 12, 1962
