Tim Harford is British, and is talking about Brexit. But I think his remarks are probably appropriate and forewarning for Trump as well.
Tim Harford originally shared:
 
‘We are quite capable of clinging on to our beliefs by picking whatever facts support them’ So what happens now? As the aftershocks of the Brexit vote rumble on, people keep asking me to predict the future. I am not sure that is a useful exercise. But…

Which is better: getting new front brakes this week and rear brakes next week, or vice versa?

I hope I won't have to pick one. Unfortunately for me right now, I have some money in one account, some money in another account, and some money in transit between accounts. If they'll let me split payment, I can do it; if I wait for the money to finish transiting, I can do it. But not with the money in transit.

If you follow the link, you'll see the favicon for the New Jersey Stormwater organization. The favicon is the logo for Sun Microsystems, now a part of Oracle. The colors of the favicon are the old Sun colors, and not what Oracle is now using. Sun was a major manufacturer of Unix workstations and servers in the 80's, 90's, and early 2000's, and they also gave us the Java programming language. It was founded by some of the original developers of BSD Unix. It was much beloved by hackers of old.

My phone (an LG G3) is nearly 2 years old and will be off-contract next month. It also runs real hot and drains batteries fast when doing Pokemon Go (full charge to 1% in less than 3 hours). I've been thinking about an upgrade for a while.

I was considering a Nexus 5X, being an LG phone similar in form-factor to the G3, but with several improvements (including stock Google Marshmallow), but that phone is itself now nearly a year old, with (theoretically) the next Nexus offerings due out soon. Other manufacturers have released better phones since then as well.

What phones do you recommend?

My preference is for a phone I don't feel I have to root to get the crap off of. Right now I can't use Android Pay because I have a rooted rom, and I'd like to try that service. That does heavily weight towards Nexus, but I'm willing to listen to alternatives.

Yes. I recommend Anker batteries.

Is there any reason to have multiple copies of the same pokemon? Or is the best strategy to take my redundant pokemon, sell them to the researcher (if that's what he is, and not a furrier) for candy, and feed that candy to the one I keep. Or, in other words, is there any reason why I shouldn't just feed my extra Weedle's to my other Weedles?

I've been doing that once I figured out I could. I keep the Pokémon with the highest CP.

In the "no docs are bad docs" department today, go to gulpjs.com and look at the page. Scroll down so you can read it all, then the Docs link and/or the "Try it now" link (they go to the same place). If you want, you can also follow the "Plugins" link. The one other link on the page, "Twitter", I didn't bother following.

After all that, tell me, in simple terms, what does it do?.

Representative Tom Reed is the Congress-critter from my district. He endorsed Trump long before Trump was the presumptive nominee (he was the front-runner).

He's got a Democratic challenger. The last election, he called his opponent an "Ithaca Liberal". This time, he's saying that his opponent John Plumb, who grew up in the district, then went to college, the military, and was until last year working in DC as a military liason to the white house, as too "DC", with no real ties to this area.

And now he's got a fake "DCJohnPlumb" twitter and facebook accounts to impersonate (I mean, "parody") his opponent.

Asshole.
Republican Rep. Tom Reed is defending as “a good use of resources’’ his campaign’s creation of a fake Twitter account that impersonates his Democratic opponent in the November election.

I got a great birthday present today at lunch. It's a day late, but it's still a great birthday present.

SpaceX landed a rocket on a barge! Go SpaceX!

I'm not all that familiar with Lyle Lovett.

SpaceX is trying to pioneer the reusable space launch system world. They have the goal of recovering in a reusable manner the 1st-stage booster of rockets which launch satellites into orbit. 

So far, they have made 7 attempts to launch a a satellite and land the booster. It is much more fuel efficient to land the booster down-range rather than have the rocket turn around and return to its launch site. So 6 of the landing attempts have been on a barge at sea rather than the launch site.

The 1 landing on land was successful. The first 5 landings at sea went something like this: https://youtu.be/BhMSzC1crr0

The most recent landing, however, went like this: https://youtu.be/sYmQQn_ZSys
