+Google Maps I seem to remember being able to plot waypoints on a map. Why is that no longer supported?

Sally Kohn angers me. She writes a piece about how racial bias, rape, and climate change are all bad, then says "Finding solutions is vital. Let's start talking about that." DUH. How about actually positing a solution?

And can we define what the heck "rape culture" means? There is no culture in the US that encourages rape. Not one person I know would ever advocate rape. Wtf is it?
Sally Kohn: How do we solve problems like racial bias in policing, sexual assault and climate change?

Stop it with these "the athletes are shortchanged" nonsense. These people are given a free education at a university where they can pursue any course of study. Even though many of them have no academic justification to have this opportunity, they are anyway, and better qualified students are denied admission. If they choose to throw it away, that's their choice.

Her sentence is so outrageously partisan and biased. She doesn't even attempt to pose the question unbiased.

I love going to the sporting goods store to buy a few boxes of ammo and having the total $45.70. Gun guys know.

Spider Man has been drawn in this pose before, and in several ​poses that, if he was a woman, you could easily deem "offensive" or "sexualized". Artists draw super heros naked to outline their physical features. They then paint the costume over it. This is very common.


"You can't really court women by continuing to regurgitate tropes that subordinate their power and strength to the imperative that they look extremely sexy all the time."


Really? Have you seen any women's magazines or catalogues lately? If anyone can find me a Cosmopolitan magazine with in unattractive woman in a non sexual pose on the cover, I'd be very impressed.

#Jezebel
The comic book industry is not particularly well-known for portraying women in a non- insanely-sexualized manner (you can't fight crime without a boob window, as we have all observed over the years). Even given that, a recent Spider-Woman cover somehow managed to slink under the world's already-low expectations with the single most terrifying butt-drawing of all time. And now, after facing widespread online criticism of the psychosexual nightmare...

It's only stupid of Marvel because the people who are offended by this are stupid. Marvel should have predicted it.

What kind of range allows this? Firing from behind the line, prone shooting, multiple windows, shouting "stop!"

I put the name of the range in the annotations under a little "special thanks"

This makes for a pretty good lunch place but the food itself is forgettable. I think there are two main problems: 1. The menu itself is complicated and unclear. They should adopt a more Chiptole style menu where ordering is broken down into numbered steps for stupid people, or for drunk people. 2. Unlike Chiptole, not all of the ingredients here taste good together. Some flavors are conflicting. And due to the menu, it's likely that you'll order something with ingredients that don't blend. They used to have a secondary menu on the side with suggested combination options. "Smokey Joe" for instance was this kind of patty with this kind of cheese and mushrooms, etc. It helps people get things that taste good together. They did away with this menu, I don't know why. You'll end up ordering stuff that you think sounds good when you read it, withoit considering how it mixes, and then at the end you're mixing sweet corn salsa with balsamic vinaigrette. Not good. Simplify the menu.

Horrible place. Terrible musty damp smell in the room. Clerk was rude and didn't seem to care about customers. It was so bad I tried to check out a day early but the clerk wouldn't allow it. Even though I was charged for two nights, I went next door to the Marriott instead and opted to pay for two hotels that night, just to not be in this hotel. Seems to be the local drug deal or prostitute hotel, vagrants swarming the parking lot, shirtless and seemingly on drugs.

You know that stereotype of DC that half the people who live here are not from here? Yeah. Well DC is not known for any particular type of cuisine, especially Italian. If you're from New York or Philly, or somewhere between in Jersey, you know what I'm talking about. People in parts of Boston and Providence know what I'm talking about. Anyone who gives this place 5 stars has no idea what pizza or Italian food should taste like. And if they call it "carry out" you know the review comes from one of the natives who has no idea what pizza should taste like. This is the best pizzeria within walking distance of the Ballston metro. But that isn't saying much. If you're really craving good pizza, go to Bronx or Goodies. Or don't have pizza.

These guys are straight-shooters. I went in with an engine overheating problem, coolant leaking. They could have effed me for a busted head gasket (over $1k parts and labor) but found the true problem (much cheaper). They called me and told me what was going on and asked for the OK to go ahead and fix it. I had the car back in 3 days. I also had an electrical problem a few months ago. Brought the car in and gave a description. Started walking home, I got about 3 blocks before they called me back and found the problem, and fixed it for free right on the spot.

Calling this pizza "Brooklyn Style" is like calling your tiny kitchen in your tiny basement apartment a "gourmet kitchen". Not much positive I can say about this Dominos, other than the fact that they deliver very quickly and they're open later than almost anybody else in the area. Good if you're drunk, I guess.

All I wanted was to get my four tires mounted. Tires I brought. They tried to sell me services I didn't want. Tried to tell me the tires I brought were used. Called me up later and wanted $700 to replace the back brakes. No. Just change the effing tires. The thing is, I didn't buy the tires from them and didn't want their extra services ($100 to balance???). So I'm sure they messed something up on purpose. If I wasn't only temporarily in town I'd have never come to this place. Avoid this place.

Terrible customer service. Rude drivers. Drivers will go the long way every time so you pay more. It's no wonder cabs are being beaten so badly by Uber. They suck. Hopefully taxis will succumb to natural selection.
