So it seems that none of the current presidential front-runners are likely to become the next president.
It's hidden there in plain sight, even if it hasn't happened since the election of 1825: The people will not pick the next president, Congress will. We ...

A message to electric bike manufacturers from the tech who rebuilt my Bionx battery pack last year...
 
Don't build proprietary nonsense to make a bike that should last for decades be scrap inside 5 years.  Kthx.
It's the end of February, 2016. The anti-Trump fortress of "Well, yeah, he's got some support now, but there's no way he can win the primaries" has been thoroughly overrun, and it's occupants are beating a hasty retreat to t...

The panini grill in the Zurich office is amazing. I was pretty sure my croissant was going to explode with the way it was popping and smoking. I was looking around to see if anyone else was concerned, but it seems that this is operating as normal. Later I discovered that it's 400 volts and 5 kw...so you're basically plugging an EV charger into your sandwich. (The bottom of my croissant was only slightly scorched after just 40 seconds...but tasted amazing.)

+Colleen Rutherford, how about one of these for our kitchen? ;)

For those who have asked me for my thoughts about "Buses on the trail", here are my thoughts on Kirkland's options for rapid transit.
Drive
Rapid Transit that fits KirklandThere’s a lot of uproar in Kirkland against buses on the trail. But the uproar is a red herring that distracts us from the real question: what locations in our city should be connected by rapid transit? Only after identifying those points should we consider which routes best connect them. To ide...

I support reducing the cost of being physically fit, and I hope you do, too.

Soon after I started using an HSA last year, I wondered why costs related to physical fitness were not considered eligible expenses. This bill proposes to include them. (Granted, I don't think it's a great solution since those in the highest tax brackets save the most money on these expenses, but at least it's a start.)

Is it sad that the first thing I thought was "amy should sort after Abba"?

Wow, +Carnival​! The new Internet service onboard the Magic is...like magic. $60 for one device at a time for the whole week. In the past, that maybe would have given me 2 hours, and probably at much lower speeds.

I'm usually a pretty happy person. But this story made me very sad.
A fungal disease is threatening banana plantations worldwide, and it's a case of history repeating itself.

Yeah, so I've noticed from the dates of the articles I've been reading. As with many big problems, their biggest problem is lack of broad awareness that the problem exists.

For +Michael Brundage. In related news, churros seem to be everywhere in Barcelona, served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Our family just enjoyed dinner at Woodies for the first time. It was busy and we had to wait 20+ minutes for our food, but the staff was helpful and friendly, and the food was worth the wait. (The cashier indicated that it was the busiest that their restaurant had been in over 3 years, but it still seemed to run quite smoothly.) We enjoyed a clam chowder bread bowl, fish tacos, fish & chips, and a kids meal (chicken nuggets). Our kids are often finicky eaters, but they ate a great dinner tonight. I expect the view would have been great, too, if we had arrived before the sun went down!
