Sometimes I feel like I should start a blog for legal weed reviews... I end up doing a fair bit of discourse on the subject.

I'm always a bit surprised when people say they haven't experimented with strains... Like, WHY NOT?

A good reason to stop a bad habit.
Another reason not to pipe from curl to bash. Detecting curl | bash serverside.

Yay +WIRED​ spot on!
Saying that Sci-Hub is about copyright infringement is like saying the Boston Tea Party was about late-night vandalism.

What about supporting car mode? It'd be nice if Drivemode would feature some support for auto launching and/or becoming default or whatever when a device goes into Car Mode.

You should really check out this new app called Drivemode! I can receive and respond by voice to apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp while driving. I can also easily control music without leaving my navigation!

People keep telling me I need to allow my kids to make their own decisions about religion. I disagree. I find that kind of equivalency to be as false as the prophets who represent the superstitions that stop people from thinking about science, or human rights, or rationalism.

A patented "solution" to the problem that people do not wish to watch trombone concerts. Best part starts at around 6:15, only in part because he sets the lawn on fire.

Would it be possible to fix +Pandora​ album art? It hasn't worked for me in quite some time. I'm an avid Pandora user and also quite fond of AutoMate, but the generic background kind of sucks.

Story
Tagline
Mostly Harmless; Naturalist Post-Punk Radical Leftist Secular Humanist @Snowden: Ask yourself: at every point in history, who suffers the most from unjustified surveillance? It is not the privileged, but the vulnerable.
Introduction
“He was a dreamer, a thinker, a speculative philosopher...or, as his wife would have it, an idiot.”

“Man has always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much...the wheel, New York, wars and so on...while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man...for precisely the same reason.”

"The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be." 
Bragging rights
passed the Turing Test...but failed Voight-Kampff.

Domino's has come a long way in the last few years! It may not be the "best" pizza in the world, but it's pretty good stuff these days. The employees here do a good job of getting pizza out quickly and accurately. That's really all I need.
