The real problem is that the current choices are "left" and "really left."

Historic Boblo boat. I remember being on board this boat 30 years ago like it was yesterday. 
The 112-year-old SS Columbia, one of the beloved but battered Boblo boats, leaves Detroit for what is likely the last time Sept. 16, 2014. The vessel was towed down the Detroit River to Toledo for repairs and maintenance in anticipation of being returned to service in the Hudson River Valley in New York. Dan Austin/HistoricDetroit.org

From slowing the decline in fatal brain disease, to generating a sense of oneness with one another and the universe, drumming’s physical and spiritual health benefits may be as old as time itself. Drumming is as fundamental a form of human expression as speaking, and likely emerged long before humans even developed the capability of using the lips, tongue and vocal organs as instruments of communication.

LOL. Apparently the +The New York Times is just an arm of the Democrat propaganda machine.

And I mean that literally. 
The New York Times Friday report that Republican Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and his wife Jeanette have been cited 17 times for traffic violations was written after the citations were pulled by liberal

JSON all the things!
 
JSON output for basic tools
I have merged into libsmartcols support for JSON format. The feature is currently enabled for lsblk(8), findmnt(8), lslocks(8) and losetup(8). The library already uses structured data, so add a different output format is pretty trivial. For example fin...

TRUTH.
Alex Scrivener originally shared to Drinks:
 
I just really, really want to make a joke about only having to change the label. Does that make me a bad person?
Anheuser-Busch says it has stopped beer production at a Georgia brewery to produce thousands of cans of water for the American Red Cross.

Stallmanite Debian user throws a hairy conniption. The lowdown is that "OK Google" in Chromium requires a native, binary-only extension that gets downloaded and installed, but not activated without user opt-in.

Stallman needs to stop being a whiny bitch and get back to writing code.

Food Babe is a perfect example of why you need a bullshit detector.
 
I would say the Food Babe is a toxin.
Vani Hari, AKA the Food Babe, has amassed a loyal following in her Food Babe Army. The recent subject of profiles and interviews in the New York Times, the New York Post and New York Magazine, Hari implores her soldiers to petition food companies to change their formulas. She's also written a bestselling book telling you that you can change your life in 21 days by "breaking free of the hidden toxins in your life." She and her army are out to chan...

I had never heard of the "Food Babe," but it fit in perfectly with the horror short story Baby Weight by Sarah Benkin that I just listened to yesterday on PseudoPod. Content warning: this is a horror story. If you don't want to be horrified, don't listen to it/read it. On the other hand, if you enjoy horror and want to hear a story that takes someone with beliefs like the Food Babe to their illogical conclusion, this one is powerful.

Systems Engineer, Software Developer, Crazed Lunatic
Introduction
I'm a systems engineer and open source software developer from Central Florida.  

Language note: I am only fluent in English.  I can read a couple of other languages with limited fluency, but I'm not likely to circle you if you don't speak English.  Sorry. 

Why did I circle you? I read something you posted and determined that you are an interesting person, that we have common interests, or you are someone I could learn from.  Quite possibly all three. 

You do not have to circle me back, but please feel free to do so if you like.

Pretty good coffee, they roast their beans on-site. Their espresso machine is an Astra, and they grind with a Mazzer Mini. They pull nice shots. Their roasting services are excellent. Highly recommended for the home barista crowd.

"A Google User" above is wrong. I was just there this morning. This place exists, but the map marker was completely wrong. It's on US 19, not on Troublecreek near Grand. This location is quick and efficient and they handle walk-ins well.

Not bad. The room was very clean, the common areas were also very clean. Service was excellent. the free high speed internet was acceptable. Unlike other hotels in the LaQuinta chain I have stayed in, there were no laundry facilities, no office facilities and no exercise room. The breakfast was substandard as well. They advertised hot waffles -- yeah, Eggos. Give me a break. _Every_ LaQuinta I have stayed at has had a Belgian waffle maker, but not this one. The breakfast dining area was also too small. OTOH, my room came equipped with a brand new HDTV, an oversized mini fridge, microwave and a very decent desk. Comments here about smells or cleanliness or shady characters hanging out in the lobby were unwarranted. Beaches were not far -- U.S. 1 is only about 5 miles from the hotel.
