So they kill a gorilla that doesn't kill a boy in a zoo, and Disney only fences in a crocodile that does.

... Horrible.
 
Space politicized? The current US House of Representatives, already the laziest and most dogmatically useless national legislative body in American history, has now altered NASA’s budget, forcing the space agency to return to a Bush Era priority: “no funds are included in this bill for NASA to continue planning efforts to conduct either robotic or crewed missions to an asteroid. Instead, NASA is encouraged to develop plans to return to the Moon.”

To be clear, there should be nothing political about these priorities. I serve on neutral commissions to evaluate missions based on their likely scientific and other outcomes. Nearly all scientists agree that there is little or nothing to be gained from any near term manned return to the sterile lunar surface, which offers humanity nothing of any near future value.

In contrast, both scientific and commercial interest in asteroids is intense, with several nations and companies like Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries eagerly investing in what could be the 21st Century’s giga-Gold Rush.

The Obama Administration’s and NASA’s goal for manned flight - ramping up operations in lunar orbit ,learning to both study asteroidal resources and work on extended missions - is exactly right and supported by the best expert advice.  Expertise that the current House leadership banished from Congress when they disbanded the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) and chose to rely instead on majority members’ gut instincts.

Those guys have made this matter - which should be nonpartisan and scientific - part of culture war, instead, with one party praising Return To The Moon for no other reason, certainly not science or potential profit. Their sole rationalization? “The Europeans and Chinese are talking about moon trips!”

Yeah?  Let the Chinese and Europeans and billionaire tourists have that sterile ball. We have lifted our gaze to more interesting and likely far more rewarding vistas. Vistas that ONLY the United States can take on, instead of being copycats.  Get rid of these morons.
In latest funding bill lawmakers call for a "common sense" spaceflight strategy.

Well that's awesome
 
Before there were complex wood glues or screws, Japanese craftsmen used a series of interlocking joints to connect wood for structures.

Most of us have found ourselves in the awkward situation of trying to communicate in a foreign language. But thanks to a new translation device that neatly fits into your ear, the days of struggling to speak the local lingo might soon be a thing of the past.

Drive thru lady on 06-19 2016 at 6:20 pm is an idiot about availability of their own products and can't ask the manager to confirm...? Oh, and then they "don't have ice cream." Waste of time.

Called to get a charger for an electric lawnmower. After 90 seconds of ringing to the garden section, the call disconnects on its own. Called back, same thing. Called 3rd time, asked for Customer Service. Got nationwide call center. Asked for part, gave model number, put on hold. 20 sends later someone picks up and says "hello?" Come to find out this new person is Renee and is actually in the store. Repeat everything again. Describe I've already called parts store nearby. Renee interrupts almost every sentence never asks for my model, gives me one part number, and a description for two others. We hang up. I look up part number, and other parts. They have nothing to do with my issue. I call back. Get put on hold. Renee answers, I describe I looked up parts and they're not for my lawnmower. She again interrupts, asks if anyone has told me about the parts store off 104th. I describe that's the same store I told her last time that I already called. I see this is pointless, I ask her name, ask to be transferred to Customer Service (local store). Finally get there. Myra answers, says she's a manager. I start to explain events. She says she'll talk to Renee. I try to continue talking, she expresses disinterest. I give up, and say OK. She says thanks. I say yeah, uh huh. We hang up. Really NOT pleased with the overall level of "service" from ALL Three of the women I spoke with. (Call center, Renee, Myra)

Absolutely NOTHING open to the public. VERY big disappointment. The lady at the desk said we could sample the games they had out for only a few minutes. But only because I asked. No tours, and oh... NO PICTURES... not even of the little metal Mario business card holder at the receptionist. Don't make a special trip to visit here, you'll get shunned away like you're too insignificant to matter.

This place will definitely be on my list of options when trying to figure out dinner... I tried the Tokyo Bowl, and thought it was quite tasty :) The egg rolls had an odd flavor, so I don't think I'll be getting those here again. But I will be coming back for more!

Well, I was surprised that this "store" is just a Kiosk in the middle of the walkway of the mall. Looks like a small bar where one would walk up and instead of getting a drink, one would play with a Surface tablet. Only thing that stood out as weird was that their whole show seems to be only about the Surface. The guys said they have other stuff, but none of it is on display. It also really has a "store" feel to it. Not very technical when it comes to some questions asked... so that was a little disappointing.

Awesome burger! Knife was dirty. Waiter was a little (exteremely) absent-minded. Got asked the same question about 3-4 times on a few different things. Atmosphere gets loud before a show, and people definitely start drinking... Overall, the food is great, but the cost and the atmosphere will make me hesitate a little before the comedy show...

DO NOT HAVE YOUR BRAKES DONE HERE. After them claiming heat spots were from slamming on the brakes all the time (which doesn't happen) to them wanting to charge me an additional $100 + for a HARDWARE KIT?! (3-5 bucks at any local auto parts store), they were agitated when I told them no and became very unfriendly with the whole process. I decided I'll do my brakes this time around. (this time I have the time to do them right). Come to find out, they put RED lock tight on both of the bolts that hold the calipers on, on both sides of the car. (Red lock tight is an adhesive for bolts that you never intend on removing, while blue lock tight would be for a temporary hold. A friend of mine that used to work in auto repair, suggested this is a known "f-you" kind of move that mechanics will do when they're screwing with the customer. Also, they put the wrong kind of pads on and didn't machine the rotors, so my pads were chewing away at the rotors instead of the pads being what wore down like normal. I will never recommend this Just Brakes (which is part of the Tires Plus building).
