A few days ago I had a realization. What if the bailout terms were supposed to be an offer Tsipras couldn't accept? Nobody wants to take responsibility for breaking up the Eurozone, so it's a standoff to see who blinks first?

Unfortunately nobody blinked, so now the Greek economy is going to deteriorate even more, and in a few years time they're be wrangling to create yet another short-term patch.

It seems like there was, after all, some sort of study of a contingency plan for leaving the eurozone:

I bought some chicken breasts at the store today. When I got home, I noticed they're just under 1 pound each. These are split breasts, not whole.

First, these must come from some crazy mutant birds. Chickens aren't meant to be that big. I've seen smaller turkeys at the store.

Second, this is just a flat-out ridiculous cut of meat. Who wants to deal with something so unwieldy? You can't really sautee it or grill it, because it's too think and lean. Various immersion methods or baking would work, but you'd still need to cut it up unless you're cooking for the Hulk.

Why is this a thing? What's the demand for it?

+Brenda Gilsrud​ I guess I should ask her. I forgot she has birds too.

+Gregory Weber thanks very much!  When we got there it was so foggy I was afraid we wouldn't get any good photos, but it cleared up quickly. I'm lucky I got the chance to take a few in the fog!

Just saw this guy outside. Guess I'd better keep the kitchen windows closed at night.

Yeah, we see one or two hanging around our house. They will drop down into the street drains when seen!

We got our cats some grass for Christmas. It was a big hit.

I just found out the Sunnyvale Public Library has a 3D printer!  How cool is that?  One more reason to go to the library (as if I needed another one).

+John McDole I'm sure you do (not saying "we" until I've actually started).  But somehow I don't find that particularly surprising :)

He's been doing this for about 10 minutes now... I have no idea what's so fascinating about the mirror.

He's so funny, and so serious about it.
