Hey GOOGLE!    I'd like to selectively turn off the not so awesome fake snow.  How about it?

Thank you. The world is becoming a hallmark card. Or always was and we now have enough money to show how brain dead we humans actually are?

I used a Canon 6D for that experiment.  Many other cameras that support external flash should be suitable as well.

Google Chrome displays a "potentially hazardous content" warning if you want to save a PDF file from a URL.
At the same time, Google Chrome permits saving a web page as a PDF file, but frequently does not do this properly.
Hmmm.

This made me smile today.

“I use a biblical perspective to decide my beliefs about various issues,” Mr. Black said in an interview in his office suite on the third floor of the Capitol. “Let’s just say I’m liberal on some and conservative on others. But it’s obvious the Bible condemns some things in a very forceful and overt way, and I would go along with that condemnation.”

Thanks. On a distantly related note, BBC's Radio 2 channel (non-current popular music, mostly) has a Pause for Thought slot every weekday morning, and the Radio 4 channel (more intellectual, no music) has a Thought for the Day slot - both of these as far as I know have covered all major religions but have not given airtime to Humanist, Atheist or secular viewpoints. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thought_for_the_Day

What is today's rate for electricity and gas?
It is unfortunate that utility companies can supply vast quantities of product without the individual consumer being aware of the daily rate.  Large business are not subject to this and can adjust their consumption appropriately.  It is clearly appropriate for this information to be as readily available as the local news and weather.  Public awareness needs to be raised.

Good point, the laundry can wait a day (usually) or be done at night.

I would call this the three genuine questions of the high bridge troll.
What are you called?
What is your calling?
Who is your favorite caller?

The high bridge troll has difficulty recalling the questions correctly.

I think I need to change the last question.
Who is your favorite caller?
What describes your favorite caller?

Opposing viewpoints:
We cannot afford to treat our neighbors with honor, compassion and respect because this would not be profitable.

We cannot afford to treat our neighbors with deceit, indifference and disrespect because this would be suicidal.

Which society would foster war or peace?
