Possibly an accurate definition of terrorism in action.

Thanks +Jonathan Seyghal for this unsettling piece.
 
Travelers lived through the panic and chaos of a terror attack, only to learn it was an act of mass crowd hysteria.

Yes and it shows that the "terrorists" have already won.

Going Dutch

Chilling on the deck of a (permanently moored) sailing boat in central Amsterdam that is my home for the next few days. Very chilled - the wine too.

I knew the city would be pretty but it is much more than that - cool and intimate too, with tiny bars and restaurants every few metres, it seems.

Looks lovely there and well done for respecting the privacy of Fran by cutting out her face.

Google Photos cleverness

Google Photos is getting more and more clever, it seems. I needed to find an old photo I took the day I fitted a decal to a scuffed Chromebook and of course all I needed to do was search for decal. That this is even possible is simply amazing to me.

Nao Victoria

A replica of the first ship to circumnavigate the globe, returning with on just this vessel with only 18 of the original expedition (243 crew members on 5 ships).

She is now docking at Plymouth, UK where you can hop on and visit the ridiculously cramped quarters. The photosphere gives a good flavour of what it must have been like.

Probably won't contain nuts

I have just discovered that peanuts (along with cashew 'nuts', Coconuts and most other 'nuts') are not members of the nut family. (It is equally alarming that the nut family if a family category at all, lol.)

When are we going to see those warning packets saying instead May contain legumes?

Jason Bourne or Jason Yawn?

This film did not start well and it was all I could do not to head for the exit. I expected to see an 'uploading virus' dialogue on a screen, the IT was so infantile. Lots of concerned faces looking at jumpy screens (the camerman just would not stop jumping around lest we might actually see what is being filmed.)

The eye candy and car chases did not do enough to balance the silliness and lack of meaningful plot, imho. What is it he fretting about now - oh, yes, this time it is something about his dad. Or something.

The one shining light was the part played by the French actor/director Vincent Cassell - he lent some much needed gravitas - along with Tommy Lee Jones.

This is the last Bourne franchise I will being sitting though, though. All I could hear throughout this 'episode' was the sound of the last drop of blood being squeezed from a dying stone.

Haha yeah that was true. It didn't need to happen like that all did it. Bourne is at its best when he's in the shadows, right under their noses, not in the middle of a riot!

Also, as much as I like Tommy Lee Jones, because he was new to the franchise I found myself not caring about him very much.

I suspect this might eventually be another casualty of Brexit for the UK.
 
@MarioVilas @gsuberland ... no. a gram of hydrogen is not exactly one mole. 1 mole is defined as the amount of atoms in 12g of pure C12... a numberry plant. Aug 19. a numberry plant @whitequark. @MarioVilas @gsuberland and the atomic mass of ¹²C is not twelve times that of ¹H, ...

What temperature is the room? At what elevation does the water sit? What type of container is he water in? What heat source do I have?

Tell this guy to go fuck off, nobody in America gives a shit about how much energy it takes to boil water. We have coal, natural gas, plenty of trees to cut down and gold medals to win in the Olympics.

I suspect his iPhone does not allow him to use it the way he would like, lol.
 
Looks like somebody didn't get the message. Android: Be together. Not the same.

I wonder if my wife would notice if I cut up one of the less used chairs to try this out?

https://richardwiseman.wordpress.com/2016/08/07/a-new-beuchet-chair-illusion/
I have always been a huge fan of the Beuchet chair illusion. Created by psychologist Jean Beuchet in the 1960s, this wonderful illusion is used all over the world to make people appear to be tiny. …
