I so wish Yelp had a "you are a fucking idiot" button, in addition to "cool" and "helpful".

This kids' flash card has a serious difficulty level.

Up there with Amazon's most hilarious reviews. These guys got sick of Yelp's shakedown, and decided to fight back.

It looks like Fry's is finally selling the controllers required to be able to properly use EMACS. (Well, except the bellows. Nobody ever seems to have those anymore.)

I am really not sure how to tell the difference between this civilian police officer and a military service member.

The RPS interview with Peter Molyneux is so rude and over the top that I'm deleting the Rock Paper Shotgun bookmark I've enjoyed for years.

It drives me moderately bonkers that anyone reporting on gaming apparently has to include school-project level stuff like "Desert Golf" alongside actual game of the year material like Dragon Age. Seriously? Can't all of that 8-bit, side-scrolling, retro crap be relegated to a sidebar entitled "It's been done a thousand times before, but here it is again on a phone, or with a brilliant new color scheme"?
From polished sequels to surprising new franchises, 2014 was a weird year in gaming.

Reads like a checklist of everything that go wrong with a government authority. 
For generations, the people of the Four Corners region have battled the federal government over the land and its treasures. Operation Cerberus was supposed to expose a lucrative trade in stolen antiquities. Instead, it tore a hole in a Utah town.

Count me confused by this. The court seems not to understand that manipulation of the order of results is equivalent to false reviews.
The crowd-sourced review site merely engages in “hard bargaining,” court rules.

I'm tired of making excuses for the poor quality of restaurants in this area; very few of them would last a minute on the east coast. Including this one -- Saigon Harbor. Flavor in their dim sum is amped up by the liberal application of salt, which hides the fact that there isn't much else going on. All that salt means you need water. But surprise! This restaurant is literally the first I have been to that *charges you* $0.75 for a glass of tap water. Which means one of two things: They're so cheap that they're cutting corners everywhere to save money, or they just figure they can overcharge because they're popular. I don't like either. Makes me wonder what else they're doing to "save water": Proper washing of dishes? Who knows. I'll try to find another, somewhat less crappy dim sum restaurant in the area. Not getting my hopes up, though.

Really happy to find good quality Persian food; we had two koobidehs for dinner and they were great. Very generous with the meat, for this dish, with saffron rice and roast tomato. I usually ignore the yoghurt with this dish (at other places), but for some reason this time it was great -- maybe because I haven't had this in a long time.

We've been to three different Bon Chon locations -- two in Virginia and this one in Sunnyvale. It's become apparent to me that there's substantial variation between each instance. The first time we had Bon Chon chicken in VA, it was absolutely fantastic. Every time we went back to THAT location, it was equally good (and it took a while to get your order cooked). The other location we went to in VA wasn't anywhere near as good. This location in Sunnyvale is the worst of the three. The time from when I placed my order till it was made available was a scant 10 or 12 minutes, and I'm pretty sure that's not enough time to do proper "Bon Chon" preparation. And what that does is make the chicken taste like what you can get anywhere else. So if anyone from Bon Chon World Headquarters is paying attention, I'm pretty sure they should head in and do a little quality control on their locations, because some of them just aren't taking the time to prepare the products properly. Bon Chon chicken is EXCELLENT when it's cooked right. Too bad this location doesn't do that.
