Free monthly checks for all sounds like a wonderful proposal, but how feasible is UBI to implement in reality?

My personal favorite.

"say what the f*ck. If you can't say it you can't do it."
 
I see there's one post here about Risky Business and one about Moonlighting.  This post is in honor of an actor who was in both, Curtis Armstrong.  Curtis played Booger in Revenge of the Nerds, Miles in Risky Business, Ack Ack in One Crazy Summer, Charles De Mar in Better Off Dead,  Herbert in Moonlighting, and many more.  

Some of his best quotes are:

 say what the f*ck.  If you can't say it you can't do it.

I don't believe this! I've got a trig midterm tomorrow, and I'm being chased by Guido the killer pimp. 

This is pure snow! It's everywhere! Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is? 

 I think I just froze the left half of my brain!

Don’t Sleep On New Data Privacy Regulations

Chalk it up to the Snowden Effect. Although it has been nearly three years since Edward Snowden turned the world on its head by releasing a trove of highly sensitive documents, the ripples of his decision are still being felt broadly. To that end, the European Union recently finalized the text of what looks to be the world’s single most significant — and severe — data privacy law to date.

An algorithm that can predict how to reprogram any type of cell by signalling the cell to morph straight into another cell type, without bothering with the stem cell step, has been created. "This new algorithm termed 'Mogrify' was created after 5 years of development, and uses a database of over 300 different human cell types to predict which factors are required to make each type. It uses big data to accomplish in a very short amount of time, what would take years in the lab." "Although the system needs further work, initial tests have been very encouraging."
Researchers at the University of Bristol have created 'Mogrify' - an algorithm that can predict how to reprogram virtually any type of cell

Thank you Paul.

I'm type 1 so I don't have to deal with the depression but can relate to the sentiment you so eloquently shared. Great interview on Charlie Rose.

Story
Tagline
Starving comedian, dad, and techno-phile with a virtual wanderlust.
Introduction
Specializing in raising multiple children, I work with hardware and software for a living, these days around software defined data centers and cloud native application architecture. 

I was introduced to computers at age 5 by my father. He had taken me to his office to show me a green screen. While there he told me I'd better get used to dealing with computers, because by the time I was going to need a job, they would be everywhere. 
 
Thanks for the tip dad.

Interests: computers, parenting, neurology, space exploration, philosophy, psychology, public policy, and on and on and on...
