When I drove up to Tex Drive In, the drive-thru lane had another customer, so I took a video of him

This is beautiful, fascinating, and a terribly dangerous time sink.

A beautiful song, an anti-war song, a violin cover. So well done.

My node-way rank just moved from #20 to #19, but it may not hold for long. The account "gvil_import" (Slovenia) is moving up quickly in nodes, and "rowers2" (Poland import) is quickly adding nodes and ways; either could cause me to drop back to #20.

I posted my rant http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/bdiscoe/diary/39538 on the #craftmapper debate, after my whining, there's also a useful solution

Due to long hours of editing on this 3-day weekend, my #OpenStreetMap node/way rank has moved from #22 to #20. Looks like getting to #19 might still be months away, tho; that spot is currently held by "DaveHansenTiger" with a way-rank of 2.

I was curious about the Finnish language today, and stumbled on this. If you like language humor as much as I do...

This writer also sees self-driving as an absurdity and distraction, tho he doesn't get into the technical criticisms I would, or the eco context. He still thinks they're "cool" in the impractical way that jet-packs or Mars missions are.

Sometimes I am just in awe of what humans put on the internet. I was curious about a B movie from 1990, which I knew had an excellent director's cut (VHS only), and an awful theatrical release (easily found on DVD). Incredibly, somebody created a scene-by-scene, down-to-the-second comparison of the two versions!! Amazing, but, WHY.
