Media and bloggers - please stop the nonsense.
Excited for tonight's supermoon?! Don't be. It's nothing special. It's all just hyped-up media nonsense. #StupidMoon

I wish I could play with the car - but there's a lot of competition for that remote.

Google: "Other drivers have hit us 14 times since the start of our project in 2009 (including 11 rear-enders), and not once has the self-driving car been the cause of the collision. Instead, the clear theme is human error and inattention. We’ll take all this as a signal that we’re starting to compare favorably with human drivers."

It was only a matter of time. Robot vehicles (self-driving) are coming. Being a truck driver these days is a really bad long-term career option.
The move to self-driving trucks comes as oilsands companies look for ways to cut costs and boost productivity. At Suncor alone, such a move could eliminate 800 jobs

"Civilization is revving itself into a pathologically short attention span. The trend might be coming from the acceleration of technology, the short-horizon perspective of market-driven economics, the next-election perspective of democracies, or the distractions of personal multi-tasking. All are on the increase. Some sort of balancing corrective to the short-sightedness is needed - some mechanism or myth which encourages the long view and the taking of long-term responsibility, where 'long-term' is measured at least in centuries." - Stewart Brand

Agreed.  The last time I remember something like this being so convenient was quite a few years ago when my family (parents and me, not my current primary family:-)) was camping at Seacliff Beach.  Nothing like sitting on the beach, with a campfire watching the total lunar eclipse happen.  I'm kind of spoiled so even though this will work out great, I'll likely suffer from some minor disappointment.

“…The one I care the most about is to change the way we fund elections so that no longer is it the tiny few at the front of the line, the rich billionaires and the millionaires at the front of the line, who get the attention of our government, but all citizens are represented equally in that."

(Making science meaningful again for kids) Most "chemistry sets" nowadays are dumbed down in the name of "safety" to the point that they've become boring and are not teaching any science anymore. I'm glad to see exceptions still exist. Kids can handle things like hydrochloric acid, hydrogen peroxide, calcium metal, etc. Teach them basic safety and they'll do just fine. They're not dumb and they're not porcelain dolls. Good to see this kickstarter has succeeded, and I hope it will inspire a renaissance in DIY and educational science.
Chemistry sets used to be awesome. Today, a lot of them suck. But the kit pictured here (which, with 49 days left in its campaign, has already been successfully funded on Kickstarter) comes fully stocked with chemicals, equipment, and experiments. It’s the kind of thing your kid (or—screw it—you, yourself) would actually want to experiment with.

Thumbs up review for West Coast Archery. The owner is very knowledgeable and helpful. He will work with you to make sure you get what you want. The store has a wide range of items in stock - arrows, releases, broadheads, basically everything you need. They also have a big shooting range, nice looking, big, bright and clean, where you can rent a lane and shoot some arrows. Or you can take lessons. They also do leagues, check the website for the schedule. I've purchased here compound bows for myself and my kids, those models were very new (production had just started), so they didn't have them in stock. They placed orders with the manufacturers and the items arrived quickly. If you live in the Bay Area, this is one of your best options for an archery pro shop. 5/5 stars.

Mom and pop motel. From outside looks just okay. But the rooms are awesome! Very very clean. New furniture, very nice and comfortable, I almost felt spoiled. Large and clean bathroom, with bathtub. Microwave, A/C, fridge, TV and Internet. The price was better than the Big Name hotel at the other end of town. The owners are nice people, very helpful. Highly recommended; this is where I'll stay again when I'm in the area.
