Per our County Clerk, 74 marriage licenses were issued today before they closed at 1 PM.  They expect much business on Monday as well.

The first gay marriage in Michigan was completed in Muskegon County earlier today.

I didn't realize this, floppy music, was a thing.

I think this one translated well.

Ok... now that was just weird.  Can't say whether I liked it or not, really...  Am NOT following the link to a similar Bohemian Rhapsody.

My wife and I had an enjoyable afternoon attending a performance of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

We had the spouse of the principle harpist as a seat mate.

The Internet (and the Internet community) sees censorship as damage and routes around it.

I rode my bike home through it yesterday morning, after getting a call that I was urgently needed across the state.  It was a tough ride home, just an hour after riding in.  Against a very stiff headwind. With large snowflakes hitting me in the face, to the point where I had to take my glasses off and just squint as best I could.  Oh, and in that hour I was at work, I gave blood.

I saw a flash of light in my vision at one point, but I figured "Meh, I see weird optical phenomenon in my vision when pushing too hard all the time, ignore."  Then 10 seconds later the thunder.

That which does not kill us...

Another reason to have nothing to do with Verizon.
 
Had a rather unfortunate conversation with a Verizon executive at PTC the other week about interconnection. His exact quote was:

"Pretty soon people will be able to bow down to their new overlords."

He also described how Verizon is now systematically and intentionally congesting their links to other networks to force content providers to pay them to access their users. So much for #netneutrality  !

I agree with you completely.

There is no comparison with their network.  If that were the only consideration, I would still be their customer.  However, I can afford occasionally being out of touch and they went out of their way to convince my wife that they did not want us as customers.

We currently use Ting.  The only issue with them is that they are on the Sprint network.  You really cannot ask for a more customer-oriented company.  If they were on Verizon's network, there would be no issue at all.
