Management:
A pyramid scheme in which success results in promotion instead of jail time.

Why choose a more expensive LED bulb over CFL? If the lamp gets knocked over, you don't have to risk exposing your family to mercury and you won't have to replace the carpet in that area. Am I paranoid? Probably. Is the risk worth $3-5? Not really.

Ah yeah, I suppose one of the downsides to LEDs is the size requirements. Before, all you needed was a thinner filament with more resistance, now it's a function of how many LEDs can you pack in the space including space for heat dissipation. I suppose we'll get there eventually.

Turbo Kid is a fantastic 80's post-apocalyptic movie set in 1997 and made in 2015.

Does anybody have any recommendations for a great camera app? Frankly, Google's camera app is lacking, and that's putting it very nicely. I'm looking for something with some manual controls, even better if they resemble SLRs a little bit. I just tried Manual Camera, but I asked for a refund after I found out slowest shutter speed was 1/5. Why wouldn't they allow long exposures?

I've never personally used FV-5, but I hear it's good. It has a bit of a learning curve though, from what I understand.

When it was him and the baby, I've never laughed so hard at a video on the internet in my life.

Makes you wonder how many innocents are really in there, doesn't it? But this part in particular really makes the blood boil: Twenty-seven of the innocent convicts falsely confessed to their crimes, a group comprised mainly of children or the mentally handicapped, according to the report.
In all, 149 people spent an average of 15 years in prison before being cleared last year, according to a new report out Wednesday.

+Leslie Phillips That's horrible and absolutely despicable. Unfortunately, "justice" is apparently somebody, anybody, getting put behind bars. The goal shouldn't be to incarcerate at all costs, but that's exactly the way too many prosecutors see it, any kind of law enforcement with suspicions sees it, and really, other citizens too (such as the victim's families if there is a victim). There is no such notion as "innocent until proven guilty" anymore. If you're put on trial, or hell, if you're even accused (such as in the case of a girl telling her parents the bus driver touched her because she doesn't like the way he scolded her one day), people see you as guilty no matter what happens, and god help you if you're unfortunate enough to have that cow Nancy Grace cover you before the trial.

How familiar are all of you with the Democratic caucus process in IA? There were a few Bernie supporters screaming bloody murder for a recount, and I tried to kindly inform them there is nothing to recount (beyond verifying the reported tallies in each precinct by asking for them again). While hurling plenty of insults, someone's trying to tell me there are still some secret ballots, but everything I've ever read about it has never suggested that and that only the Republicans make use of this. Granted, I'm no expert and I've never participated in an IA caucus. Am I a fool, or is this other person just being a belligerent jerk?

It's "electoral silly season" and people become partisan and see conspiracy everywhere.
If you want to keep those as friends, you'll have to wait the end of silly season :)

Meanwhile, verify any info, but before arguing with someone, check that it is worth it.
Reason and Passion don't sleep well together during political silly season :)

When they're tearing around all over the place, singing their first songs, diving off couches (and just shaking it off), eating everything in sight, throwing things at your head, jumping on top of your head, kicking you in the head, and in general just testing how easily you bruise, it's easy to forget just how vulnerable and helpless they were not that long ago.

This is cute. :) Trapped in a video game, on a mission to rescue her boyfriend, and then things get worse…

Suddenly, image loaders seem to lose a large part of their helpfulness when you need certain things such as the dimensions of the original image.

Glide allows you to define the cache too, but at the point it allows me to do this, it's not accessible at the point I need it to be. There's no way (at the point of a request to an ImageView) to provide that information to the cache class. At least not easily and in a forwards-compatible way and without a lot of spaghetti connections, lol.

I'm going to take another look at Volley, but if I remember right, it didn't offer near the same kinds of options as Glide or Picasso.

I'm just lucky the appropriate method I needed in Downsampler in Glide wasn't marked private.

I suppose I could always just fork Glide too. That might not be such a bad idea, actually.
