Recognizing racists' coded language. 
Racially coded language can hide as “good intentions” or “objective common sense.” But here's what's really going on when someone says “stop playing the race card” or one of these other phrases.

I have never, ever heard of special relativity being explained this way, especially the part about the human processes working. This is not a simple way to explain special relativity, it is a cool new way.

Calling Toyota's bullshit.
Support for +Elon Musk 's "Hydrogen is B.S." views.

"  “The hydrogen economy would be a massively wasteful economy that would at best use three to six times more energy than an electric vehicle and solar/wind infrastructure and many times more water than even gasoline uses.”  "
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (HFCVs) appear to be making a comeback. But according to Tony Seba, HFCVs can't compete with electric vehicles.

Final verdict: It doesn't bend after all. Don't bend a Nexus 6P with a cracked screen!

Grrr.... "SINGAPORE - The PUB (Public Utilities Board) is working to identify a man seen fishing illegally in Toa Payoh whose fishing hook hurt a wild otter.
"PUB is investigating the incident and is working to identify the angler in the video. We welcome any information from the public that can help us to do this," a PUB spokesman said on Thursday evening. "PUB is dismayed at the incident."

Fishing is not allowed in waterways, including the stretch seen in the video, the spokesman for the water agency added. Those caught fishing at no-fishing areas may be fined up to $3,000."

"More power is seldom a bad thing, but it's much more satisfying to stretch an engine than constrain it" - Ben Oliver, CAR magazine, 2008
From something drafted for Cnet: 
Michael Tan is lucky enough not to have to choose between his job and his passion. He is the responsible for all aspects of developing new businesses and sourcing new productlines for a regional IT distribution company. He also oversees the company's legal affairs as General Counsel. In real life, he is a technology enthusiast, both for fun and business.

Damn good Cantonese Chinese food Cantonese style. Rock cod dishes are great. Fried chicken fried Chinese style with hot flavored oil and salted pepper. Wow. Great prices too. As somebody from a real Chinese country, this was great.

The ambience is perfect. The food is 3 star at best but better than anything else I've had in Yangon for white man food lol. Italian chap mans the big wood fired wall oven. Quattro formaggi doesn't have strong enough gogonzola. Chicken was too dry. But still better than most others, at least it's more authentic than all the rest. Tiramisu is top 40 percentile for what I've tried. Bar guy is fancy and does some tricks with the half filled Dewar bottle.
