Nicely said.
Sir Ian McKellen has said he thinks it would be "a pity" if they got the depictions of the Stonewall riots wrong in a film about the subject.

No, this is not about his orientation any more than it's about the shampoo he used on his hair. We can be truly blind. (The article is about how wrong this meme is, and I agree.)
It is a mystery to me why some people think that any curtailment of their choice to be as offensive as they want is an infringement of their fundamental rights. It's this kind of attitude that led to the following, which has ...

Just made a horrible mistake and scanned /r/politics. I'm sure I have not gotten smarter, so politics has gotten much stupider. I'm embarrassed to be an American right now.

About 51 weeks ago I was in a life changing accident. I have no memory of it, but apparently there was a head-on between my motorcycle and a truck. Rehab has been hard. My right leg was shattered and has titanium running its length. My femur was broken in two places, I lost maybe 1/3rd of my patella, and both my tibia and fibula were broken (messing up everything in the ankle.

I used to run, and last year, in the spring, had just (barely) finished my first ultra marathon. I'm not fast, but I'm very persistent. This past New Years Eve day, I hobbled my first 2k run. It was not only painful, it was slower than most people can walk.

But like I said, I'm persistent. Last week I ran 4 times for a total of 35km. This week, my slow recovery run of the week was a 5k. The time is, by most people's standards, awful, but looking at the records I've kept over the past three years, it was the 7th fastest 5k I've ever run.

5k is not my usual distance, I usually go longer, but wow! I still won't win any races, but I'm back!

This is the right thing for the doctor to be doing. I'm sad that it needed to happen.

This thought has crossed my mind as well.
World needs a "Geneva convention" for the Internet to safeguard personal data.

Reminds me of the 16 hour days we worked setting up nuclear tests. We'd do 4, 16 hour days a week, and it was pretty common knowledge that any work done after hour 10 on a given day was going to need to be redone the next day. Didn't keep them from scheduling it that way though.
It's the historically-emergent standard for good reasons, because the quality of work simply goes to shit when people work too much. Burning out workers "destroys their personal lives and gets noth...

I have a cost engineering textbook from the 1970s that cites studies that over two weeks of overtime results in overall productivity less than two weeks of straight time.  My limited time in software management persuades me that software development is no different.

Fortunately the Santa Cruz mountains seem to be spared. We've had far worse drought years over the past decade. Well into the summer you could see new growth on our trees, and even now they don't have the brown tips I'd expect. (Of course we're still getting regular fog too.)
A team of scientists from the US Geological Survey, UC Berekeley and the National Parks Service seek to find out.

Nothing makes you feel old quite as easily as young people rediscovering common things from your childhood and being surprised.
Love soda, but hate yourself? Try heating up some Dr Pepper this winter.
