This is getting a little out of hand and turning into thinly veiled discrimination.
 
But tell me again how I don't understand France's "freedoms of expression."

(Note: If this thread even LOOKS like it's going to turn, I will delete any comments I see fit. This is your one warning.)

According to French media reports, a 15-year-old French Muslim girl was banned from her class twice for wearing a skirt that was too long, and therefore supposedly a conspicuous display of religion. France's state secularism has led to very strict laws prohibiting students from wearing overtly religious symbols in institutions of education.

That came out wrong. Should have said I'm not sure there's actually a veil at all.

This is the kind of honesty that would make me switch carriers.
 
T-Mobile’s new ‘Next-Gen Network Map’ offers a more accurate look at the carrier’s coverage

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
T-Mobile has just rolled out a new network coverage map that uses customer-verified coverage data, rather than estimated data that other carriers use.

Alarm bells that don’t go off.  Ted Cruz declared on TV that “satellite data demonstrate for the last 17 years, there’s been zero warming.” And immediately my Specificity Alarm went off.  What?  You don’t have a specificity alarm?  Well you need one, because it helps you to detect when damned liars are at least trying to weasel a way  out of speaking direct falsehood.  Like a kid proclaiming: “Who broke your window half an hour ago, Mrs. Smith? Can’t be me, cause I’ve been waaaay over here for 26 minutes!

Seventeen years? Hm… why 17 years?  And why “satellite data”?  Read this article. It proves this fellow to be far, far worse than a damned liar.  He’s a damned, lying lawyer.

Oh... btw... 
ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... ocean acidification... and 
ocean acidification... 

You cannot escape that one. It is blatantly happening.  You can measure it yourself. It can have zero POSSIBLE causes other that human caused increases in atmospheric CO2, and it is killing fisheries and coral and helping spread jellyfish everywhere.  And those who shrug that off, slipping their minds elsewhere to go back to denialist chants, are vastly worse than cynical liars like Cruz. They are simply loco.
A researcher cited by Cruz's spokesman doesn't agree with Cruz about climate change.

This is just weird.
 
Apple Watch Hates Your Tattoos

If you've been planning to buy an Apple Watch, but you've got a tattoo right where the back of the watch would rest on your wrist, you may want to think twice: dark tattoos can cause it to malfunction.

This is because it detects (for security and other reasons) when it is being worn by measuring light absorption through the skin. A dark tattoo can confuse the Watch into believing it has been removed from your person.

Quite how such an elementary and predictable issue made it past QC in Cupertino we may never know, though perhaps Bendgate was an early sign that their standards have taken a back seat.

Those affected are forced to repeatedly enter their security code as Apple's flagship watch keeps locking.

Adult Wednesday Addams.

I didn't even know this was a thing. And now apparently the Addams people have decided that it shouldn't be a thing. But I think I would have liked it.

Happy Easter to all who celebrate it and if you don't it's also National Deep Dish Pizza Day, National Caramel Day and Cold Food Festival, i.e. Cold Chinese Food Day.

At Froyo Fresh this afternoon with my daughter, she loves this place. Really great selection of ice cream and frozen yogurt, lot of toppings and really, really great staff. We're here at least once a week.

Gio's is a fun little Italian and Mediterranean (Greekish?) cafe that I would highly recommend to anyone, especially those with a serious desire for pizza. Great draft beer selection, the food at Gio's is very good but the pizza in particular is truly fantastic; Don't get a salad. Skipping right to talking about the pizza, I would recommend eating there or taking out only if you are travelling a short distance. The crust on their pizza is a wonderful, thin dough crust but that can cause it to become a little floppy while traveling. That said, reheating in the oven crisps leftovers right back up. I can't help mentioning that I would steer clear of the salad. The lettuce seems to be pre-shredded bagged lettuce and the vegetables topping it were just a little poor quality. Who wants a salad anyway when the other Italian and Mediterranean food is so outstanding.
