This is absolutely worth watching. :)

Need more cowbell?

Whether you are on stage or just Down on the Corner, the cow bell sound evokes a positive, upbeat mood, which is the perfect accent or main beat for Latin-American style music, Funk, or just good old American Rock and Roll!

Rarely will mistakes cause a relationship to die.
Rarely will lies allow a relationship to survive.

OK, so I'll admit I was acting under the old advice of letting the car idle when it's cold. It's what my dad told me to do! :P Also worth noting is that apparently it's cheaper to kill the engine for 10 seconds than let it idle. I've googled this and several sources concur, including the American Society of Mechanical Engineers which found savings after only 6 seconds [1].

Is this news to anyone else, or am I the last one to know? :)

No need to let the car idle on cold mornings!

Some details are a bit off here, such as exactly how bit assets are created, and of course, BitShares X is now done and gone (it's just BitShares now, that's part of the rebrand) but overall this is a good read.
 
BitShares was featured on Coindesk! Give the article a read and share it! http://bit.ly/1zooPZb
Pioneering crypto 2.0 project BitShares is rebranding its website in a bid to encourage merchants and consumers to use its decentralized exchange.

Dear European friends:

You always ask us why we dumb Americans write our dates in a weird order. The answer is so that #PiDay makes sense.

Happy 3/14/15! :)

That is all.

When I first learned about SSRIs in my intro to psychology class, I immediately thought (myself being a software developer, this is how I think) what a dirty hack... There's absolutely no way that's not going to break other parts of the brain. This is quite interesting information that confirms my suspicion.

Frankly, though, that's what I think of most drugs the more I learn about them. We're throwing chemicals we barely understand at organisms we don't even begin to understand, and seeing which ones don't kill many people quickly. Sometimes the results are worth the apparent damage, but I wonder just how much damage is there that we simply can't tie back to the cause due to the time required for it to surface and the complexity of the balances that we destroyed in pursuit of a quick fix...

I'm no luddite, and I'm absolutely in favor of scientific experimentation and learning more about ourselves. But I prefer to be a bit more cautious with what I put in my body, because I'm going to have to live with what it may do to me 40 years down the road.

I've historically recommended Lenovo as a decent laptop manufacturer. I hereby rescind that comment, and will strongly recommend against buying their equipment for the foreseeable future. This is absolutely unacceptable for an OEM under any circumstances.
 
A word of caution if you're planning on buying a laptop in the future.

I came with a couple friends and had a burger. The food was great, the waitress was good and I liked the ambiance. I particularly appreciated that the table had grinders for the salt and pepper instead of shakers. Fresh ground pepper is just so much better, hahaha.
