http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tasman_Bridge_disaster "Sylvia Manley: "As we approached, it was a foggy night...there was no lights on the bridge at the time. We just thought there was an accident. We slowed down to about 40 km/h and I'm peering out the window, desperately looking to see the car...what was happening on the bridge. We couldn't see anything but we kept on travelling. The next thing, I said to Frank, "The bridge is gone!" And he just applied the brakes and we just sat there swinging. As we sat there, we couldn’t see anything in the water. All we could see was a big whirlpool of water and apparently the boat was sinking. So with that, we undid the car door and I hopped out."

(2) No, they're not the Chibok girls, but 300 women and girls have been freed, among the thousands of people Boko Haram has kidnapped. Are we going to quibble about whether it's a good thing?
Thanks to for spreading the news.
- Sometimes where you come from, such as a small WV farm, makes you all the more interesting.
- I try to remember that I am always at least partially wrong, that keeps me humble-ish.
- I talk about science, technology, and politics. Typically I will not shy away from areas that folks avoid as the discussion can have value. I have studied finance and management information systems. I apply systems engineering, which I've also studied. I have worked in the government. I now am implementing projects. I will not let you off the hook for misinformation and most often call you out for bias (we all have them, just own up!).
- I have stopped posting to individual circles for most posts. This is because G+ penalizes non-public posts.
