Your tax dollars at work.  Not surprising, actually.  Politics always tries to color reality, whenever possible.

Take right now, where "Climate Change" is an illegal phrase in Florida.

This is not their story.  Read on.
Thirty-five years ago, the U.S. government built a fleet of cars that were safer than anything on the road. Twenty-five years ago, the government shredded them in secret. Two escaped the crusher. This is their story.

This is nice, more would be incredible!  Of course, being a child of the 80's, it's predictable that I would like it...

A side of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" that you've never seen before!  Worth a few minutes to watch, and enjoy!

"I don't remember it that way at all..." (LOL!)

This is just AWESOME!  I had never heard Feynman's voice before - it takes a little getting used to.  At the beginning, it's not hard to "see" Ed Norton chatting with you - but as he warms to the subject all bets are off, and you can see the brilliant physicist that lurks just beneath the vocal surface.  Amazing!
 
I think everyone in this group needs to watch this video concerning philosophy and science from my favorite physicist, Richard Feynman

I suspect the one simple proof that there's intelligent life "out there" is that they avoid our part of the galactic neighborhood like the plague (a bad paraphrase from Calvin and Hobbes).

Still, an interesting view from the opposite end of the table...
As a new TIME book explains, a cosmos with trillions of planets does not guarantee more than one with life

Had there been no crash, there would have been no arrests, or charges.  Also, 157 Kilometers/Hour (km/h) = 97.55528 Miles/Hour (mph).  I'm curious what the road conditions were, and why the Lamborghini driver lost control - that car handles like a breeze at that speed...  :/
Street racing charges have been laid against two drivers of high-end cars for their alleged involvement in a street race in Surrey, B.C. last December that sent a Lamborghini careening off a highway and smashing into a tree before it ended up in a ditch.

This is actually fantastic news!  I was curious if they had something bigg (or better) up their collective sleeves.  Turned out they did...
 
2015 Saleen Black Label 302 Mustang Debuts With 730 HP.Prices for the 2015 Saleen Black Label 302 begin at $73,214

Earlier this year, renowned Mustang-modifier Saleen Automotive released information on three new variants of the new 2015 Ford Mustang with varying levels of performance, starting with the White Label and Yellow Label models. This weekend, Saleen revealed its highest-performing tuned 2015 Ford Mustang yet, the 730-hp Black Label.

While the Yellow Label 302 has to make do with a not-insignificant 715 hp and 595 lb-ft of torque out of its supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, Saleen ensured the Black Label went even farther. Saleen fettled with the supercharger from the Yellow Label model and installed higher-flow fuel injectors, to result in the Black Label pumping out a neck-snapping 730 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque from its modified 5.0-liter.

To ensure the chassis is capable of matching the engine's power, Saleen fits the Black Label 302 Mustang with Saleen-specific springs, shocks, anti-roll bars, and bushings. Fifteen-inch brake rotors in the front with multi-piston calipers bring the Black Label 302 back down to saner speeds, while the 275/35 R20 front, 275/40 R20 rear tires help put the tremendous power to the ground.

Saleen adds extensive aerodynamic improvements to the Black Label 302 over the normal 2015 Ford Mustang GT, with the add-ons extending the car's length by nearly 1.5 inch in front and 2 inches to the rear, increasing downforce. A new rear wing adds to the trademark Saleen appearance and aerodynamic performance. A host of external carbon fiber spoilers, foils, and splitters contributes to the aggressive appearance as well as downforce.

On the inside, the Black Label 302 features bespoke modifications to the gauge cluster, center stack, and steering wheel. Seats get wrapped in suede, and a host of Saleen badging is placed around the cabin. Each Saleen Black Label 302 comes with Saleen serialization and VIN.

Prices for the 2015 Saleen Black Label 302 begin at $73,214, a whopping $40,089 over the price of a base 2015 Mustang GT. That being said, until we get more performance details on the upcoming Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R, the Saleen Black Label 302 is currently the apex predator in the Mustang lineup.

Yeah, but only the Google Insiders know this, and they're not talking.  Much.  (Not Dead Yet!)

This is simply amazing!  And like Shadow said - the possibilities for this are endless!!!
 
This is AMAZING!!!!! The possibilities for this technology are endless!
As humans, we can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. “Our experience of reality,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman, “is constrained by our biology.” He wants to change that. His research into our brain processes has led him to create new interfaces — such as a sensory vest — to take in previously unseen information about the world around us.

I have to admit I didn't see this coming.  quite the surprise, and regardless of what the WinFreaks will tell you, sometimes the last straw is "What will make this thing work?" vs "How many times will this thing need to update?"

Just read it.  It's nothing like obvious...
 
Even if this post is coming from Microsoft.com the story is not what you think it is.

Ah, yes.  More from the "That which is not Forbidden is Mandatory" way of thinking.  Or unthinking.

The only problem I have with this level of stupidity is that the people at large either have a stake in allowing this mess to continue or they FORGET what has happened and just vote with their fears.  Not sure mandatory voting would make much of a difference in either case.

Linux Mint for the win!
 
#Linux #Mint #Debian Edition 2 #Cinnamon RC Screenshot Tour

 The team is proud to announce the release of LMDE 2 "Betsy" Cinnamon RC. LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) is a very exciting distribution, targeted at experienced users, which provides the same environment as Linux Mint but uses Debian as its package base, instead of Ubuntu. LMDE is less mainstream than Linux Mint, it has a much smaller user base, it is not compatible with PPAs, and it lacks a few features. That makes it a bit harder to use and harder to find help for, so it is not recommended for novice users.

When it's time to get things done...
Introduction
With too many interests to follow, I find that the mixture of ADHD and OC make it difficult to stay with any one career for long without it branching out into several different careers at once. I've actually had to learn to say "No" when a manager/vice president/ranking company officer comes up to me and says "Hey, Gene, could you take a look at this..." and attempts to add a new responsibility to my corporate queue. When I don't say "No", I end up with more responsibility than I can handle... ...and that always bodes ill for the next series of reviews, let me assure you. But all in all, I still want to help, to make our company the best it can be. I just don't have the time (or all of the different bodies) required to make it happen.

Too much knowledge can be a bad thing... :D
