Why is the AMT part of +TurboTax  so horrible? It's easier to fill out the actual forms. There's zero explanation of any of the fields, I'm spending half the time on the IRS website and trying to guess which box turbotax is referring to.

It filled 8960 form for me and didn't ask about filling any recovery worksheet. Is the worksheet something different or same as the 8960 form?

This is the first time I've liked an arrangement that embellished on Silent Night.

Does anyone have recommendations for a commuting bike brand? My bike was semi-stolen (I loaned it to someone, who loaned it to someone, who sold it by accident? or something?) Anyways, an opportunity to upgrade.

I'd like to get something that prioritizes convenience over weight in most respects, so chainguard, fenders, panniers, etc. and won't bust a tire if it has to go some distance on a gravel road. Any suggestions? (Or even suggestions on how to choose?)

This guy makes amazing hand drawn maps.

He's finished one of South Asia, and Australasia, and he's now working on North America.
Anton is currently working on a massive project, The North American Continent. At 1.5 by 1.2 metres, it is quite literally the entire continent; from Panama and the Caribbean up into Alaska, across...

We saw a pair of white-tailed kites in Rancho San Antonio this evening! They hover!
Learn how to identify White-tailed Kite, its life history, cool facts, sounds and calls, and watch videos. A medium-sized raptor of open grasslands and savannas, the White-tailed Kite is readily identified by its bright plumage and its habit of hovering while hunting for small mammals.

Apologies to anyone who doesn't get presents this year. We caught one of the elves napping on the job.

"I can't remember how much coffee I've had today, but it feels like a lot."

I think this sums up what it's like going to work with an infant at home.

Emily Carroll has written some of the most beautiful and terrifying graphic short stories I've ever read. Go read His Face All Red and after you get your wits about you again you'll want to go read everything she's ever written. But if I were going to recommend her to someone, I'd send them to her website first.

She is a master of HTML as a medium. Clicking a link is inherently scarier than turning a page. It can take you anywhere it wants, the new page arrives suddenly, and you may not be able to get back. It can suddenly change out from under you, or change every time you visit it. Paper is static. It's already there. You can flip to it slowly or lazily. It can't do anything unexpected. It will always display the same preordained thing. She uses this to great effect in her comics. Never have I felt more trepidation about clicking to the next page or scrolling down down down into the darkness.

I read this both as a hard copy and as an ebook. Despite the difficulty representing the two page spreads, the ebook preserves more of the qualities of her website that I enjoy, so I'd recommend that way of viewing it. (I've gotten so much enjoyment out of her website that I had no hesitation about buying it twice just to make sure she keeps doing it.)

Medium aside, the comics on her website are just more daring. They have more variety of setting and theme. They tie themselves in knots that defy literal interpretation. They prioritize beauty and strangeness over resonance so they never overshoot or underwhelm.

Here, the monsters are more literal, and the narratives more linear. There is less unnerving strangeness and more straight horror. So don't start here. Go read her site. When you find, like me, that you just can't get enough, come back to this.

Great food. Good prices. Lots of vegetarian options.

Might be the worst food I've had. The beef had so much msg that my tongue was numb afterwards. My wife ordered a vegetable torta and something was off about the oil, such that it made her want to throw up. She ordered a grilled cheese as a replacement (how can you screw up grilled cheese?) and even that was bad. I don't normally write negative reviews, but I'm still feeling stomach pangs and don't feel like moving, so the best use of this time is warning others about this place. BEWARE.
