Help +Jon Knutson​ help the childrens!
 
It's only a week until Warrior Dash, so I guess it's time to raise some money to help sick kids!  You want to help sick kids, don't you?  If you do, I'll swim through mud for you.  OK, that's going to happen anyway, but a small donation goes a long ways.

Just read an interesting quote from the Fables comic: Freedom is sloppy. But since tyranny's the only guaranteed byproduct of those who insist on a perfect world, freedom will have to do.

The quote was used in the context of a discussion on software; my first thought was that while that's true, that sentiment is often becomes "almost any amount of sloppiness is acceptable, so long as my short term goals are met".

This is my country by choice not by birth. My allegiance to it comes not from an accident of geography, biology and chronology, but from a conscious, fully-formed expression of my free will as an adult human being.
 
I have never, for even an instance, regretted that decision. In fact I celebrate it over and over and over again. I celebrate in the weeks like this and in the weeks when it is difficult to imagine anything worth celebrating. I celebrate because this massive, beautiful country of amazing people fight constantly to make it more beautiful and more amazing every, single day. And for as ugly and unpleasant as those fights can sometimes be, over time, and with a perspective that only history can provide, it moves to a place where it is undeniably better than the place it was before.
The times, they are a changing, suddenly at whiplash speed.

The greatest thing about the SCOTUS ruling on DOMA is how Scalia's dissent cements his legacy as a raving conservative nutjob who somehow got on SCOTUS.

I never thought we'd hear another Failure album. And Fantastic Planet was so good, I'm afraid my expectations for this have been set impossibly high.

Warning to Android devs: if you're not already an experienced Maven user, publishing your Android lib to JCenter (or Maven Central, I'm told) is crazy painful. There's no lesson or advice here, other than to have medicinal whiskey on hand as a spiritual analgesic for the cruel, almost Kafkaesque process.

Target had a bunch of Pride rainbow stuff near the entrance. I upvoted by giving them my money.

Customer service is fine. Not great, but not awful like some other reviewers are claiming. Docking them a star for disabling NFC payments, though.

The staff has always been very friendly and quick, and it's a lot cleaner and better organized than most of the convenience stores in the area. It's a mostly unremarkable gas station/convenience store, and their selection of certain convenience items, like basic cleaning supplies or toiletries, is somewhat limited, but these are minor issues. As an urban convenience store, they serve their purpose well. Bonus: they accept Google Wallet & Apple Pay! How cool is that?

FAR preferred over the tiny screens at most AMC theaters. This place has much more comfortable seating, bigger screens, and all for the same price or less than similar sized competition.

If you're looking for the dullest sandwiches in town, your search is over: it doesn't get any more boring than Jimmy Johns. That said, every Jimmy Johns I've ever been in has been clean and reasonably comfortable, and the service has always been prompt and friendly.

A whole lot of "meh". The selection is passable for their size. Prices aren't very good, though I've seen worse. Staff is competent and quick, and friendly enough, but service is rarely great. All around, the place is better than nothing, but it seems like the owners have decided to firmly rest on the advantage of their location and being the local "default" liquor store, instead of trying to do anything to make their shop a destination. If it's the only place within winter walking distance, like it is for me, it could be a lot worse. If you're driving, you probably want to go elsewhere.

Best donuts in town. As some have mentioned, the donuts tend to be a lot more cake-y and heavy than usual, but I think it really works. Besides the great variety of original and inventive flavors, the staff is quick and helpful, and the retro, glam girl atmosphere of the shop is really fun. They're more expensive than Dunkin Donuts or the crap you get from the gas station, but it's totally worth it.
