How do you guys find the time to watch TV shows? I seem to barely have enough time to eat and sleep.

That's cause you hang out at the beach all day, Bob. We in the winter territories are stuck inside for a couple of months a year. Speaking of which, it's actually snowing atm. Effing sigh.


Where do you live? I assumed Canada but which province and/or city?

Yup, everyone out here gets a third-car garage expansion and fills that with junk, instead!

Yes, that's really annoying. I occasionally see a neighbor with a garage door open - it often looks like the person is hoarding. I have a personal garage policy: If two cars can't fit in it, there is too much stuff. I only have one car and a couple of bicycles. I really dislike storing stuff just for the sake of storing it - as if anything will retain a value for that long. If it's not a tool or an important supply material, it goes to Goodwill or trash.

I usually watch TV while working out, I have weights and cardio stuff in the basement. Combine laziness with fitness for the ultimate combo Bob

Ah, ha. You have me there. I don't have basement. They aren't too common here -- though I'm not exactly sure why that is.

I have a two full sets of bicycle clothing for rainy weather. I cycled a lot in the UK as part of a commute and for exercise. It seemed to rain on and off there on a daily basis. Good memories.

California's about to run out of water.

Man, that's some scary shit. I'm sure people will have drinking water, but the lack of water for farming could decimate Cali agriculture. Cali is one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world, and produces things not grown anywhere else, like almonds. You let those trees die, and no almonds for 30 years.

They need to gather together the resident billionaire techies from the entire state, form a think-tank, and develop a highly efficient and economical desalination process -- be it large plants or some other methods (even if it means piping salt water into homes and processing it via mini stations with solar -- like we do with water heaters now). Salt water can be used for non-drinking uses - especially toilets. It's absolutely ridiculous that we are concerned about lack of drinking water while sitting next to the largest body of water on the planet.

It could solve 3 issues in one (perhaps a bit of science fiction here):

1) Lack of available drinking water
2) Rising tide levels
3) Lack of salt for snowy regions (roads, etc.)

http://www.wikihow.com/Count-How-Many-Fingers-You-Have

Through marvelous feats of extrapolation and quite a bit of irrelevance, I've drawn the conclusion that people who count a thumb as a finger will prefer Celsius. Those who don't like to count the thumb will want to use Fahrenheit. And there we have it ...

Oh for god sake, America! You're the last and only friggin country on the planet that doesn't use the metric system. It's really not that hard. Get with the program already! At this point you're like that weird, smelly new kid at school who has to eat alone in the cafeteria.

The first two nodes of what would become the ARPANET were interconnected between Leonard Kleinrock's Network Measurement Center at the UCLA's School of Engineering and Applied Science and Douglas Engelbart's NLS system at SRI International (SRI) in Menlo Park, California, on 29 October 1969. The third site on the ARPANET was the Culler-Fried Interactive Mathematics center at the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the fourth was the University of Utah Graphics Department. In an early sign of future growth, there were already fifteen sites connected to the young ARPANET by the end of 1971. These early years were documented in the 1972 film Computer Networks: The Heralds of Resource Sharing.

Early international collaborations on the ARPANET were rare. European developers were concerned with developing the X.25 networks. Notable exceptions were the Norwegian Seismic Array (NORSAR) in June 1973, followed in 1973 by Sweden with satellite links to the Tanum Earth Station and Peter T. Kirstein's research group in the UK, initially at the Institute of Computer Science, University of London and later at University College London.

In December 1974, RFC 675 Specification of Internet Transmission Control Program, by Vinton Cerf, Yogen Dalal, and Carl Sunshine, used the term internet as a shorthand for internetworking and later RFCs repeat this use. Access to the ARPANET was expanded in 1981 when the National Science Foundation (NSF) developed the Computer Science Network (CSNET). In 1982, the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) was standardized and the concept of a world-wide network of fully interconnected TCP/IP networks called the Internet was introduced.

Is this thing on? Blame Verno and Creston.

Somewhat relevant entry to this thread is Dust.

I know I'm very amateur.

So, let us know how awesome that sunshine is next year Bob when you've all died of dehydration.

Nah, we'll just send half our population - the ones that don't have legal status anyhow - with big buckets - to your backyard - to gather some *free* water.

That Tsunami video is terrifying! I hope that nothing like that ever happens near my family. So sad.

That's very scary! That's the reason why we live high up top of the hills on the peninsula. My wife fears a tsunami like that.

One of my favorite games for iOS is back with a mega-update.

Too bad there is no PC version - yet (?)

It has a certain humor and overall quality that is difficult to pinpoint but it makes it fun and unique.
