"I'm not saying Jesus wasn't born in Bethlehem. I'm just saying show me the birth certificate."

Twitter is cracking me up today. Lol

Excited to announce that I'm now working full time at Google as an Associate Product Manager on the Android team! Speaking of which...

Drinking game for tonight's Republican debate:
Take 1 drink whenever:
- Donald Trump interrupts someone.
- Benghazi or Hillary Clinton's emails are mentioned.
- Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio say something in Spanish.
- Someone says "Christian nation," "traditional marriage," or "family values."

Take 2 drinks whenever:
- John Kasich actually gets to speak.
- Anyone says "I'm not a scientist" before rejecting overwhelming scientific consensus about climate change.
- Mike Huckabee takes a hard-line moral stance and/or jokes about sexual harassment.
- Ben Carson or Rand Paul refer to themselves as "outsiders."
- Obama is referred to as the "worst president for __."
- Anyone uses the line "You're fired."

Finish your drink:
- Someone takes a shot at one of the seven candidates not even on stage.
- Donald Trump offers to pay one of the other candidates to stop running.
- Ted Cruz shuts down the entire debate to show his version of good governing.
- Chris Christie is late because of traffic.
- Reagan and Jesus are mentioned in the same sentence.
- Anyone says anything so mind-bogglingly sexist, racist, or homophobic that it should instantly disqualify them from public office, but instead their poll numbers rise.
- The moderator announces that they too are running for president.
Anything that I missed?

So this summer I built a pretty nice gaming PC, and I'd like to be able to use it's idle time to help with distributed computing science projects like Folding@Home, SETI, etc. Seems like those two tend to get all the attention though - does anyone have a recommendation for a good project to join that could really use the extra power?

This gif is making me hungry...
How's your GIF game? At 11am EST on May 5th, Cinco De Mayo, you’d better bring it. -Rusty

"Wookie lifespan" and "Chewbacca age" had no recorded search volume until this month - I wonder why... :)
(For the record, they live an average of 400 standard years).
