What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo is a poor, mourning Pilgrim, bound for Canaan's land

The Ark of Bukhara, Uzbekistan. Holy crap. (Grokked from Robert J Bennett)

So how's Texas' plan on open carry on college and university campuses going? Yep, exactly according to plan. (Grokked from Hannah Bowman)

In future, rope jumps you. The smart jump rope that keeps count and interfaces with your mobile device. (Grokked from Dan)

The latest version of the Atlas human-like robot from Boston Dynamics. So, basically, Google (aka Alphabet) has completely abandoned their original motto of "Don't be evil." Seriously, hasn't anyone there seen any of the Terminator movies? (Grokked from Robert J Bennett)

A black hole finishes a meal.

Apparently Bill Gates thinks Apple should cave to the FBI and just write the damn software already. And for context I'll just remind everyone that Mr. Gates was responsible for Windows 2 to 97, some of the most notoriously insecure commercial OSes the world has ever seen.

When I was a manager (oh, to be young and foolish again), it was at the time when corporations went really big on the anti-sexual harassment training. So I had to have "the talk" with several employees to help clarify what was inbounds and what was totally out of bounds. Somebody needs to have that talk with Joe Arpaio.

"Following another second-place finish in the Nevada GOP caucus, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) argued Wednesday that candidates don't win presidential primaries simply by winning individual states." De-Nile, it ain't just a river in Egypt. Of course he did later state that he will have to win some of the winner-take-all states to have any hope. Welcome to a brokered convention.
