I really like the websites which match your policy positions to a candidate.  But istandwith.com gave me an 84% match with Shawna Sterling, which is a real head-scratcher.

Apparently I support "Democratic". I knew that...

It's a small world after all.  I did a search for "katy perry ululation" this morning and found that someone else had made that connection as well.
Well, this comes as no surprise! According to Forbes, none other than Katy Perry has been ranked 2015’s highest-paid mouth-noise person! The celebrated throat-sound lady raked in roughly $135 million this year from various sources of revenue, most of which are a result of her ability to make pretty air whistles.

I tried to think of the phrase most evocative of the 1980s.  My best shot:

"I'm driving the Pacer down to FotoMat to get more flashcubes"

can you beat that?

Early demonstration of timesharing.  You have more computing capability in your phone than existed in the entire world in 1963.

"Between $300-600/hour" for computer time. Wowser.

Europe is facing a humanitarian crisis.  To celebrate, San Francisco hipsters are hosting "a spicy night of refugee recipes and beer pairings"

Pet peeve of the day (actually, yesterday).

I'm walking down the sidewalk, minding my own business.  Ahead of me, approaching, are three people walking abreast, filling the width of the sidewalk.

My mommy raised me as a proper polite gentleman, so I stepped into the street to let this phalanx of unaware teenage girls cruise on past as they monopolized the entire public thoroughfare and filled the air with their inane uptalk vocal-fry commentary.

Fortunately, there was no traffic, so I was able to hop back onto the sidewalk after this harpy trio passed.  No damage from passing automobiles, and the gutter was dry, so my shoes were not soiled by random sewage or other flotsam and jetsam.

I will continue to practice this form of Victorian chivalry, but I hope to at least get an acknowledgement from those who barrel down the path.  But if we're on a cliff trail, with a 200-foot thorny dropoff to the side of the path, I will stand my good ground and force you to break formation so we can all essay the route safely.

Google Books has scanned copies of "Boy's Life" going back decades.  If you want to see the idealized version of adolescent male life, check out this back catalog.  Here's an example issue from 1973 ...  for me, the ads are the most interesting insight ...

The ongoing story of Lee Se-dol vs. Alpha Go reminds me of John Henry.  I'm rooting for the human in this case, and felt bad for Henry when I first read the story as a child.

What drives sales of electric cars?  High gas prices?  If so, have sales dropped as gasoline prices have fallen in recent months?  Is it social/moral/environmental responsibility that compels people to buy an electric car?

I'm very curious to hear if sales of electrics/hybrids have dropped in recent months given gas pricing.  And have SUVs and other fuel-inefficient vehicles gained in popularity?

Late update.  13 days in Iceland.  I saw seven Leafs (leaves?) and precisely one Tesla Model S.  The predominant car seemed to be the Skoda Octavia.  Four-wheelers ran the gamut from Ford Excursion to the RAV4.  A few Hummers, one of which was spotless and clearly had never been off the road.  That one made me briefly think that I was in Danville.
