Surprisingly pleasant experience of the day. Sitting on the terrace at the mall, surrounded by plants and sky, eating cheap Chinese food and watching the sun set. Hat tip to Westfield valley Fair in San Jose

Not quite sure why this looks like so much fun, but it sure does!

Wow. This makes me sad. Where is Canada headed? 10 years for wearing a mask? WTF?

If I wasn't working on self-driving cars, I'd want to be working on this.

Loon will enable more teenage boys to download porn.  Self driving cars will preserve their lives.

Seems to me the later is the better goal.

It is great to hear a Pope speak this way. I hope he will influence the institution broadly.

In what way do you hope he will influence the institution?

Wow. I was excited about this movie before, but after reading this review I'm completely in.

In Cincinnati for the night stopping at the Millennium hotel. Front desk staff and restaurant folks were very friendly and the hotel seems nice enough.

Imagine my surprise when I discover that there is no way to turn the light on in the bathroom in my room. Some maintenance person has decided that a blank switch plate is as good as a switch. No joke.

It's just a Cincinnati switch.
