+Stephanie Bird​ -- this isn't representative of Iowa, is it?
U.S. Rep. Steve King called for civil disobedience and U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst said the Supreme Court "got that one wrong" in the aftermath of a June 26 ruling that blocks states from banning same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriages have been available in Iowa since 2009, when a unanimous Iowa Supreme Court ruling legalized the unions. Iowa was the fourth state in the nation to allow same-sex marriages...

Wtf?  What kind of dimwits do we have running this country.  You don't get to refuse compliance with a Supreme Court decision.  That's the whole idea of the Supreme Court.  The Supremes interpret the law in light of the Constitution and their decision is final.

So, in essence, he's saying that anybody can just do whatever they want simply because they disagree.  That's called anarchy.  I wonder if he realizes that's what he's saying.

Mine is making its way across the Canada, so there is a chance of interception and delay by actual bears.

The Canadian Special Edition will be awesome. Extra Us and s/er/re/g everywhere. Sorry.

I was fortunate to find Laphroaig 18 on the menu at the Sardine Factory tonight. Wow was it good! Here's the link: https://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/laphroaig-18-year-old-whisky/

It's really powerful yet the peat is used delicately, allowing lots of other flavors and sweetness to emerge. Highly recommended, especially if you can find a serving for less than $25.00.

Please check to see if this applies to you....
 
Heads up to all +NVIDIA Shield Tablet owners. A recall is now taking place due to a potential battery fire risk. Not all tablets are affected, Nvidia has posted instructions to determine if yours is impacted and instructions to get it replaced.

Pass this along to anyone you know who may own one of these.

It's not that I have anything against kittens. But I can be FOR "exploding kittens" without being for literally exploding kittens. Can't wait to open the box!

What's horrifying about this is that 154° (F) isn't the world record hottest heat index.
 
And you thought it was hot here!
In the city of Bandar Mahshahr, the actual air temperature was 109 degrees with an astonishing dew point temperature of 90.

Holy shit! It got up to "129" (approx, it was really 54*c) here a couple of years ago and that was awful. We moved up into the mountains after that.

Watch this and get a sense of how big the solar system is.

Keep in mind that this video is real-time and 45 minutes just barely gets your friendly photon to just past Jupiter. #Pluto is like 6 times further away. I'm pretty sure you'd not have the patience to watch for 4.5 hours (to get to Pluto). And to get to the nearest star (Proxima Centauri) would make the movie 4.5 years long.
 
~ Fly Through The Solar System At The Speed Of Light With This Video  ~ [io9] :: Space is really, really big, and there’s been a couple of great videos out there that show off the relative size of objects. This video puts the scale of the solar system into real perspective by showing how it takes you pass through at the speed of light. Light travels 299,792,458 m/s, and it takes just over 45 minutes from the surface of the sun to reach Jupiter. This video takes you past the planets at lightspeed, and it shows off just how long it takes to get around the solar system.:: #astronomy #space

Check out my Ookla Speedtest result. I bet your speed is better than what I saw at the Stanford Shopping Center. http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/1381072194

Last night the #Rush #R40 concert in San Jose was awesome. They did a great job of playing songs from their whole catalog (in reverse chronological order) and also their ability to recreate the sounds of the albums was outstanding. It was also LOUD. I think my spleen is still vibrating.

I feel lucky to have seen this show since it might be their last tour. I've been listening to them since I was a wee tyke (12? 13?) and it was about time I saw them perform live.

They performed 2112 which was the highlight for most people. Xanadu was also excellent. That's what they were playing using the double-neck guitars. Alex's was a 12-string and a 6-string, and Geddy's was a bass and a 6-string. Neil was his usual superhuman self. His drum solo on Cygnus X-1 Book 1 was spectacular.

Lover of fine food and whisky.
Introduction
Welcome to my profile. Thanks for stopping by! I'm really glad you're here.

I enjoy learning about whisky and I am also a craft beer lover. I am lucky to live in an area with lots of great breweries and distilleries.... My taste sometimes exceeds my budget, so I spend most of my money on my wife and my dog (in that order).

On Twitter you may know me as @whisky2dot0 (I also have a Facebook account of the same name, and a "Whisky2.0" Facebook page).

Give in to temptation: You only live once!

Great food and ambience - they really know how to prepare beef! Try a perfect Manhattan with Whistle Pig Rye whiskey. Goes great with a steak if you're not in the mood for wine.

My wife's car had a slow leak in a tire. I couldn't find it. When I took it to America's Tire, they fixed it for free in 45 minutes. The service staff was friendly, bi-lingual and did the job properly in the promised time, even though I was there at the end of the day. And the best part: They didn't try to sell me tires I didn't need; you can bet I'll go back, and so should you.

My dog has been a training customer for over a year and he is always complimented for his good behavior. I know this has as much to do with practice as the trainer, but me knowing what to practice is the key. Lately he has also become a doggy daycare customer every Thursday and he's learning to interact in a supervised yet unstructured environment -- no crates -- just dogs being dogs (with corrections as necessary from the staff).
