Love it! I am not ashamed to admit I am a huge fan of the series and have the entire DVD collection!

Public Service Announcement: The YouTube Homepage targeted viewing recommendations -- which with all due respect to the team have historically been pretty dismal at best in my case -- seem to have rather suddenly undergone a quantum leap upward in relevance and interest. Great work!

At Google, Laszlo Bock's team has examined questions like: What's the ideal number of interviewers needed to assess a job candidate?

There's a lot I want to say, but I'll say almost none of it. I will say a very little on the meta side, instead.

When Eric's book came out, my first reaction is that he was writing about an alternate reality, perhaps one in which Kennedy never got shot. My second is that he was more or less describing things as he saw them, and the world looks radically different from where he sits. I believe that this phenomenon is repeating with Laszlo.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) on Sunday insisted that people on the Internet had conspired to create a "misunderstanding" that a so-called "religious freedom" law was about denying services to LGBT people. But at the same time, he repeatedly refused to answer if it effectively gave Christians a legal defense for discriminating against same-sex couples.

Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana - All of his refusals to answer, distilled down to only two minutes! You won't see so much weaving anywhere else outside of Fruit of the Loom.

Closing comments for the night at least, as an anti-troll measure.

Boris Karloff and friends on the set of The Mummy (1932). Gotta love the guy standing behind with his hand on his hips -- Hey, can we get on with it and wrap this scene?

It's just too damned easy to generate a photo meme about dissembling, racist, spineless Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana and his GOP cronies, because Google Images returns so many ugly, slimy, disgusting photos of worms.

To better protect scripts, casting decisions, budgets and other sensitive files, filmmakers are turning to new tools to thwart hackers and block prying eyes.

Republicans can accept Loretta E. Lynch, a nominee they oppose, because she backs the president’s policies, or reject her and live with an attorney general they loathe, Eric H. Holder Jr.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence Says Religious Freedom Law 'Absolutely Not' a Mistake - Quite possibly the most embarrassingly self-damaging and state-damaging TV network interview by any U.S. governor -- ever. Likely historic in that sense. Watch and cringe while you count the number of times Pence refuses to answer a simple yes or not question.

Had to blow away a gay-bashing bible-quoting hatemonger. Yeah, you should have seen her hate-filled right-wing moronic profile! As usual, some associated comments have also been removed for thread continuity. In fact, my troll detection sense -- which is very rarely in error -- suggests that this thread has high brainless troll attraction attributes, so I'm closing the comments for the night at least, lest the thread become maggot infested while I slumber.
