DARPA, the Defense Research Projects Agency, is best known for its role as progenitor of the Internet. Now they want to revolutionize biotechnology.

There's not really any other explanation—chronically late people are actually insane.

holy shit this is painful.
9:15 - the people of 1868... he holds that the constitution is "absolutely not" a document that can change with the times and that what was said once, should stand forever. but i'd be curious if you pushed him back another hundred years and asked if the colonies should have separated from the british empire...pretty sure there were laws against that. does that mean ted cruz is anti-american? it would appear so.

If you have enough data, there usually *is* one correct way to do things.
Introduction
Before you read anything, go take 4 minutes and watch this video about how awesome human engineers are - this video shows hows an accelerometer works and more awesomely, how it's actually made! (an accelerometer is the thing that tells your phone when to rotate the screen)

An eternal optimist, I'm extremely excited to be alive at this point in human history. The internet is the final step in the evolution of communication, but the first step to a greater collective human intelligence than we can possibly imagine. One person to one person by the fireside, to one person to many in village squares, to one person to many more people via printing presses and distributed literature, to radio broadcasts and finally to televised visuals across the planet, we have only ever had a unidirectional format of distribution. But in *only* the past 20 years (20 years!!!) we have gained the ability of every (connected) person to be heard and be able to reply to every other person on the planet. If you're not completely floored by that concept (and even more amazed to have witnessed it come about) then you're really missing something great.

Thanks to our 24/7, emotion-based info-tainment media machine, we see way more about the world than at any other time in history. And depending on who you're watching for your information, this can be a great problem for the larger population.

If you find yourself getting mad at a news article, there's a very real chance that you're being manipulated by that media outlet. Step back and try to empathize and truly understand what it would be like to be on the other side. Think about how the other side grew up, what their parents were like, how they eat, sleep and go to the bathroom (the basic problems of every human on the planet). If you can think about that (without making sophmoric, juvenile jokes) then you're one step closer to understanding *why* you disagree and not simply disagreeing "because they're just wrong".

We need more understanding as we face this deluge of information. The beauty is that you can understand almost anything you want, thanks to the internet.

The secret to Google+ is Communities, not your existing social circle of friends. Join tons of communities that interest you and participate heavily in them - comment, post links and share content. You'll be rewarded with a whole new circle of friends that grows organically, and is probably way more interesting than your current social (dare I say) echo chamber??

Chill at 8pm on a Saturday. I know it gets crazy, but it's all good.

Was amazing, then they recently sold it and it seems the new staff just kinda half-asses things. Meh. Food is still fine, but with the old ambiance, this place rocked.

Convenient, but the self-check out machines would consistently double charge or not scan, then wouldn't register that you put your item in the bag. Had one employee make eye contact then walk away. The machines seem to have gotten better lately...

For a Saturday at 7pm, it's pretty empty which i love. I may swing by at a more popular time and check it out.

Completely fine. Service was fine, chili cheese dog was really good, I've had good burgers here. And the beer selection is pretty huge and wide ranging. I've come here when there's no one here and its a chill place. Lately it seems there's a bit of coke hook ups in the men's room. And the Jumbo Wings were fairly emaciated.
