+David Archer The http://www.caranddriver.com/mclaren/p1 uses its electric motor to fill in for gaps in the power curve of its huge gas motor. Or it can use both together for absurd acceleration.

I want one. No, I want two. Maybe three.

If Mark Zuckerberg is actually expressing his true beliefs about continuing real name requirements on Facebook, especially given the vast corpus of real ("brick and mortar") world and Internet examples that directly contradict his assertions (including the experiences of Google and G+), then he may have moved beyond obstinate into truly delusional. Considering Facebook's scale, reach, and impact -- that's downright scary.

I know people who are directly affected by this - doing his best to avoid an abusive, anti-gay family in one case. I can only imagine there are plenty of people in similar circumstances where Facebook's "real names" crap is not merely uncomfortable or annoying, but actually dangerous.

I prefer clean jokes because I like the challenge of telling them well. So ...

Did you hear what happened to the newlyweds who didn't know the difference between KY Jelly and Putty?

                                     [just a bit longer]

// The absolute privacy of Facebook and Twitter users can no longer be tolerated in the face of international terror, David Cameron suggested yesterday. Tory MP Henry Bellingham asked the prime minister whether the attacks in Tunisia meant it was time "companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter… understand that their current privacy policies are completely unsustainable?" Cameron agreed, saying that the security services must always be able to "get to the bottom" of online communications. //

Yeah, but try return to that parking garage through an unusual entrance and see what happens sometimes.
When people saw photos that linked a famous person with a famous place, it changed the behavior of certain neurons in their brains. And it changed their memories, too.

Last night, Leela the Siamese Snowshoe not only brought this system out of suspend, but managed to delete an important Trusty desktop icon. She's tricky. Checking my certs now, just in case of kitty subterfuge.

I learned to close the office door when unattended years ago after my cat auctioned off an item I had worked months to get in a video game I was playing for the equivalent of $.02 cents.
