Marriage rules have been complicated for a while, more than I'd realized. This article discusses the (solved) challenges of marriage for military chaplains. These complications won't end until we quit wielding who can marry and just blacklist the important exceptions, like cousins and siblings.

Very funny. :-) I agree with the comments that eating those every day is just crazy (I rarely eat snacks) but I don't think the levels of spice people I know eat are healthy either...

How does Downton Abbey compare to Game of Thrones for your dollar?  Would you pay the same, less, or more for Downton Abbey (if PBS charged) compared to paying for HBO?  How much?

I have zero interest in paying for individual shows or pieces of content. I want a single subscription service that gives me on-demand access to all media ever produced.

What does Dish Networks have in common with the A-Team?  Both conceive elaborate plans that shouldn't work but somehow come together.  Read the article for a lesson in brilliant (though questionable) scheming.
Through sleight of hand and aggressive use of partners, Dish created an unfair advantage in its successful bid for wireless spectrum.

What's more "American" than a Ford F-150?  A Toyota Tundra, for starters.  The Honda Odyssey is as American as baseball and apple pie, too.
Here, we've compiled the top 15 U.S.-market trucks, SUVs, and vans with the highest North American (U.S. and Canada per the NHTSA) parts content.

This blog post echos the frustration I have with half-baked "quantitive" calorimetry in humans.  Since people are very sensitive to weight and image (at least in California), it seems dangerous to overplay our understanding of what it takes to lose a pound.  Quoting the "3500 kcal per pound" with no explanations or caveats can only lead to tears.

I fast one day a week. With adequate water could go two days, but don't. I tend towards low bmi without effort. Walking primary exercise.

Fantastic video of tires launched of a ski jump. I think the physics should be interesting, considering differences in rolling friction and inertia, mass and force due to gravity, elastic deformation at the end of the ramp, and maybe aerodynamics. Or am I over-thinking this?

You gave it more thought than I did. I went for the entertainment; exponentially more fun! (There's my geeky word for the day)

Nice folks and reasonable rates for this area. However our room, 103, was pretty tired. The carpet looked so dirty that we didn't feel like walking barefoot to the bathroom at night, and some light switches had so much accumulated perma-grime that I used my elbow to actuate them. There's no sound insulation from the upstairs neighbors either, but that's pretty common in older lodge-style hotels like this one.

The best sushi we've had in the bay area. The saba was more tender than we've had before. We tried sea trout and sea eel for the first time, both were great. The waiter service was mixed, the sushi chefs were all very nice. I'm starring it and planning to go back.

This is one of my favorite parks. We hike, walk our dog, and mountain bike here regularly. It's a great place for exercise, and you can easily get 2000 feet of mountain bike climbing in 8 miles of riding, with hills left over in case you have anything left over! After rains the trails are muddy with soft clay and unsuitable for mountain biking (and sometimes a pain for hiking), and I wish they posted trail closures online. The views are fantastic.

Great food and fantastic employees. The cashew ginger gravy was surprisingly good.

This is our favorite local sushi place in south San Jose, and we order from here once per week. Every so often we try another one, but they're never as good as long as you stick to the fresh fish (just ask). The staff are incredibly friendly, and slightly optimistic -- if you order for pick-up and they say 20 minutes, expect 25 minutes. If you visit on a busy night, expect a longer wait as they only have one sushi chef with one assistant (who are just as friendly as the staff).
