I like the idea, and have since I first became aware of it, but man are there some serious hurdles for us to overcome. We need a definite shift in ideology, especially in America, just to overcome the negative stigma that would accompany this. We need either a post-scarcity economy or DRASTIC population control. And… » 10/31/14 1:29pm Yesterday 1:29pm

Here's mine. Mostly obvious stuff. Bartender keeps my menu bar in line and organized the way I like it, unDock because I frequently have several external drives connected and need to detach my laptop and go sometimes, Alfred is my go to app launcher and automated, Caffeine to keep my machine from going to sleep when I… » 10/30/14 1:00pm Thursday 1:00pm

Mothereffing helicopter parents. Maybe this was already a thing when I was kid, which would have been early 90's, but I don't remember it. ALL of my friends and I would go out and play. All day. Unsupervised. Unwatched even. When I was younger, the boundaries were closer. Stay in the cul-de-sac. By the time I was 10… » 10/28/14 10:37am Tuesday 10:37am

It could end up being good, but I thought the 1st episode was a bit lackluster. There was a lot of exposition with John explaining things to others, and I understand that the writers feel like there's a LOT of backstory and information they need to give the viewers, I just wish they'd find a less... direct way to do… » 10/27/14 8:11am Monday 8:11am

God, these all sound tedious and terrible. So glad I'm able to have some semblance of an objective measure for new hires. Boilerplate code test. Everybody gets the same one, with the same instructions and expectations, and it's 100% relevant to the job. I think I might lose my shit on somebody who was like, "Well, we… » 10/23/14 6:55pm 10/23/14 6:55pm

Does anyone else ever just feel like, "Fuck it! I give up! You ignorant fucks can have the US, I'm moving," only to turn around about an hour later and say, "Actually, no. I'm feeling spiteful. You can't have it." I go back and forth like this with myself AT LEAST once a day. » 10/13/14 2:12pm 10/13/14 2:12pm

I know a lot of folks will probably go with the "Blue Marble" or "Pale Blue Dot" images, but I don't think either of those really put our universe into perspective for me quite as much as the Hubble deep field images. I mean, they took a tiny section of what appeared to be completely black space, pointed a camera at… » 10/13/14 8:47am 10/13/14 8:47am
