This is of course the time of the year when frowny-faced naysayers tell you your resolutions are stupid and why are you waiting till today to make them and keep them, as if your today must conform to their today, as if your decision to evolve or change or Do Something is somehow offensive to them. It's the same cynical thing you hear at Valentine's Day -- "I don't need a day to buy flowers for my wife," they say, which is true, but of course they probably don't buy flowers for their wives on any other day anyway. People are resistant to the idea that we should change, that we can better ourselves, whether it's on the first day of the year or the third or the 51st or the 345th. They will tell you your resolutions are stupid, but of course they'll continue on making no changes for themselves and wearing their cynicism like an ugly hat proudly displayed. Yes, of course,... more »

DARPA unveiled it's latest military gadget, a robotic dog that can carry over 400 pounds 20 miles.
Now smart enough to follow the squad lead, doesn't need to be remote controlled to follow paths and work in tandem with his robotic brothers. can walk up to 3 miles per hour over rocky terrain and transition to a 5-mile-per-hour jog on a flat surface. Eventually, top speed will be around 7 miles per hour on flat surfaces.
“We want a radio operator to be able to tell it to sit, stay. Likewise, the robot could tell them, I’m stuck, wait.”
Each member of the pack is also 10 times quieter than its predecessor robot, which should make it easier to hold a conversation or sneak up on an enemy.

In the category of "embarrassing PR for the government," I offer this sentence (emphasis mine): "Three aging anti-nuclear activists, including an 82-year-old nun, cut through fences surrounding a facility where highly enriched uranium, a key component of nuclear bombs, is stored. They vandalized its exterior, going unstopped until they walked up to a security guard's car and surrendered." http://news.yahoo.com/fort-knox-break-u-nuclear-stockpile-security-focus-050116431--finance.html

9/11 for me created in me a sense of fear and anxiety. F'rex: I was afraid of flying for years after. Okay before and now. But then: afraid.
Thing is, that's of course the aim of terrorism. But what nobody really tells you is that it's also the aim, in part, of the government.
This became clear recently when flying out of PHL airport, where before security they play a video that literally evokes the events of 9/11. Because, hey, if there's one thing that'll get me to submit to a violation of my human rights by the TSA, it's trying to drum up that fear.
9/11 taught me a lot about fear. And over time, it taught me that we have to find a way to operate without it.
Because fear trumps wisdom, logic, science, common sense, love, all the good stuff. Fear will fuck you up, stop you from taking chances.
I mean, listen, fear is fine if... more »

They did this willfully, for money.
I can almost hear the chorus of shareholders in the background going "Meh" and cashing their dividend cheques.
Scotts sold this illegally treated bird food for two years after it began marketing its bird food line and for six months after employees specifically warned Scotts management of the dangers of these pesticides. By the time it voluntarily recalled these products in March 2008, Scotts had sold more than 70 million units of bird food illegally treated with pesticide that is toxic to birds.

"In Blackbirds, Miriam’s strange ability to see people’s deaths was mostly presented as-is, but in the new novel Chuck Wendig starts to reveal some of its underpinnings and even ties these into the novel’s central mystery, making it an even more tense and gripping story. I realize that’s vague, but I simply don’t want to give away any plot details here because Mockingbird, a shocking, twisting beast of a book that’ll have you on edge throughout, is best experienced with as little foreknowledge as possible."

I pretty much can't stand the way tumblr works but I've updated the VODKA O'CLOCK tumblr so all the episodes are posted. After about the 7th episode, I stopped embedding the shows in tumblr. Instead the tumblr posts go back to AmberUnmasked where all the great show notes are anyway. That's where I want people directed so it made no sense to embed the audio in yet another place. They're also on iTunes. #podcast #comics #movies #gaming #writing #gamedesign #interviews
