Oh, I originally read it as BitCoin....

I was thinking that was a bit daring.

How unsurprising that Scalioto is pro monopoly

Flappy Bird made me so irrationally angry that I deleted it from my phone within three hours.

That's me on Angry Birds, but instead of tap tap tap tap, it's swipe swipe swipe swipe.

Does it seem like a bad idea to have a car stereo that uses a record player? It was.

I'm pretty fond of my car's two SD slots.  No tape tangles there.

And FTR, early car CD players had skipping issues too.  We've come a long way, babies.

My dog is an exceptionally picky eater, and really only likes things that closely resemble human food. I haven't really been able to break her of this - the one time I had a standoff with her where she got dry kibble or no food at all, she broke into the pantry and ate an onion, which is really bad for dogs. 

Her current favorites are Dave's Turkey, Cranberry and Sweet Potato canned food and Merrick Grammy's Pot Pie. The latter looks pretty good to me; sometimes I wonder how it would be heated up on a buttermilk biscuit. 

I tried raw with her but raw food really isn't compatible with her not-eating snits. I don't eat meat at home and I'm not super comfortable with cross-contamination issues, so I really liked the Bravo burgers. They have one that's a complete meal with bones, vegetables, and everything.

Great moments in newspaper corrections:

Correction: January 23, 2014
An earlier version of this article misstated the plantings on the building's green roof. They were native flora, not native fauna.
