+Mike Knell - That's the way it already works in some countries. A good example of compromise is Sweden, which has a sliding scale of fines and 2-36 months of license suspension once you are >0.02 BAC. If  your BAC is >0.10, a prison sentence is also included.

I enjoy how this comes around just often enough that I faintly remember it without coming too often to be funny each time.

#DiRT  is Google's annual *Di*saster *R*ecovery *T*est.  It's a way that we, as a company, test to make sure that we're prepared for catastrophes.  There's been plenty written about DiRT -- we've published a paper with the ACM (http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2371516), and you can find out about it in various SRE AMAs (http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1w1y5m/we_are_the_google_site_reliability_engineering/).  That's not why I'm posting this, though.

For DiRT2014, +Brandon Chalk and I asked our fantastic catering staff to prepare a dirty spread for Whiskey Wednesday[1], the weekly social hour for #SRE  in San Francisco.  We usually have an excellent spread, but this time they outdid themselves.  Here are a couple quick shots I took of the results.  Not pictured: mudslides I was making at the bar.

[1] Whiskey not required for attendance, though many people choose to indulge.

+Ken Cline Hah, yeah, it is kind of funny :)  This is a standing weekly event, and we asked our catering staff a week ago if they could do something appropriately dirt-themed for this week.  Thankfully, the catering staff was also not simulating disasters...

Just watched this tonight with some friends.  It was really good.

Greek Catholic priest with gas mask, a battered riot shield in one hand, a cross in the another.  That's pretty hard core.

I thought so too until I googled "Greek Catholic" and found http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_Greek_Catholic_Church, which then led me to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_communion#Catholic_Church and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Particular_church.  Damn, the Catholic Church's organization is far more complicated than I had ever imagined it would be.

I'll be doing another Reddit AMA about what it's like to be a Google SRE tomorrow at noon PST (that's 20:00 in normal person time).

The last one was received well, so hoping we'll get some more good questions this time 'round.
