How politics is done.
Nothing new, I'm sure it's been going on for a very long time.
But when you hear politicians talking about " special interest groups" be aware that they are talking about some of their best friends.

US GDP           ~  17 Trillion $
Lobbying         ~  28 Billion $

Campaign spending in 2012
Presidential     ~ 2 Billion $ 
Congressional ~ 9 Billion $

Just a smart 'business' investment.

Think we'll hear much about F-35 procurement before the election up here in Canada?
I didn't think so.
 
The issue with the F-35 helmet indicates one of three things. Either program managers (a) wanted to motivate F-35 pilots to never allow an enemy behind them, (b) wanted any F-35 pilot failing to meet this standard to die in a ball of flame, or (c) were grossly incompetent.

Took a peek out from the rock I live under and discovered this is happening in about a month.
The whole season's episodes to be released at once for the binge watchers. Finally a reason to keep that +Netflix  subscription.
Also, probably not till next year though,

Is the crazy what ends the world?
For every measure, there is a countermeasure.
There are ways crew members locked out of a cockpit can re-enter but they can be thwarted by a determined person inside. Flight deck security protocols are being reviewed by airlines after the Germanwings Flight 4U9525 crash revelations.

Always keep your work site clean.
But when you have thousands of work sites and no one is perfect then statistics will eventually bite you.
Early last Saturday morning, while full-scale tests of all systems were ongoing in preparation for beam injection, an earth fault developed in the main dipole circuit of sector 3-4 of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). All the protection systems worked properly and there was no harm done. The fault developed at relatively low current and was initially intermittent in nature.

Florida Governor Rick Scott denies ordering state employees to desist from using terms like "Climate Change" and "Sea Level Rise".

I suppose a PC (for him) alternate explanation is that Florida is full of sinners and God is punishing them by making all the water come from somewhere. Yeah that's it.
 
What we know about sea level rise and Florida is not pretty. A University of Florida prof and expert on coasts paints the picture of today and the future.

I'm confused, is he denying telling them to deny climate change now? It looks like these people are living in Da Nile...

It's hard to tell how the Supreme Court will rule in the case of Partisan Hackery vs. Obvious Intent.
Who will win in Partisan Hackery v. Obvious Intent?

Sufferer of Cliff Claven syndrome related to Tourette Syndrome only I have the uncontrollable urge to respond to questions I am not qualified to answer.
You have been warned! ;)

I recently (end of May 2012) reacquired the photography bug. I used to dabble about 30 years ago with my Pentax shooting Kodachrome 64 mostly. Suffice it to say closing the feedback loop is difficult when shooting and seeing the result are weeks apart.  The technology and relative economy of digital photography has revolutionized that.
I also thank Trey Ratcliff and all the amazing photographers I have found on Google plus over the past year for the inspiration.

Sort of a hole in the wall at a fairly run down strip mall but very good eats at a reasonable price. It's fairly new so Google Street view does not have a picture of it. Jerk Chicken was very good. The small will fill you up fine, large for when you don't care about the diet and want to pig-out or share with a friend. Ox-Tail very tasty but as with ribs lots of bones. If you like Jamaican / Carribean food definitely try it.

I had unfortunate experiences with the service department. Brought in a used Elantra with constantly discharging battery. One battery, alternator and $1000.00 later still discharging. I did my own trouble shooting to find that the radio was bad so 100 bucks for an Alpine and all is ticky boo now. For them not to be able to figure this out is inexcusable. I will never go there again.

Best Burger joint in the area. Slightly better than Five Guys IMHO but not as good as the old VJ's in Winnipeg ( across from the Train station). Home made style Onion Rings to die for.

One of my favorite Chinese restaurants! Everything on the menu is good so don't agonize over choosing. Counter service only but they are usually pretty quick with five to ten minutes being a typical wait from order to eating.
