    They should just greenlight “Ow! My Balls!” already.

    I wish Google would unload some old Nexus Qs on Woot. That thing had decent functionality but was way too expensive. The Chromecast on the other hand is just too neutered to be useful for me – no way to stream locally stored video is a dealbreaker, even at $35.

    I love the “riding tips” from the COGO website:

    Riding Tips

    “Use marked bike lanes or paths when available, except when marking turns or when it is unsafe to do so. If the road is too narrow for a bicycle and a car to travel safely side by side, you have the right to ride in the middle of the travel lane.

    Bicycling is permitted on all main and local streets throughout the Bay Area region, even when no designated route exists”

    I’m reluctant to rely on their rigorous analysis of local bicycle laws.

    Is it safe to assume you guys are all under 21?

    Whenever I see a discussion on networking, I am reminded of this Monty Python skit:

    Networking is something that is simply not taught well, if at all, in schools. I understand it is important, but companies’ reliance on networking leaves out many otherwise excellent workers who may be introverted or otherwise just not outgoing.

    As for myself, I got my job through temp work. I was placed at a temp job at a good company, and was eventually able to prove myself and parlay that temp experience into a full time gig. No networking necessary!

    Not yet. Right now I’m leaning toward The Wire. Only watched the first episode and haven’t had time to introduce a new hour-long drama into the rotation. ;)

    The Americans is a cable show, though, which means it aired w/ commercials. You can burn through the 13 45 min Americans episodes a lot quicker than the 60 60 min Wire episodes.

    Also, this is probably blasphemy, but I wish someone would put together a cops and dealers remix of the Wire. There are a lot of storylines in the Wire that really slow down the action (the schools, the docks, the newspaper, etc.).

    Not a good list to be on:

    Woody Hayes
    Art Schlichter
    Maurice Clarett
    Jim Tressel
    Terrelle Pryor
    Gordon Gee
    TBD

    Per Wikipedia:

    “Ohio State’s faculty currently includes a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, 21 members of the National Academy of Sciences or National Academy of Engineering, four members of the Institute of Medicine, and 177 elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.”

    Here’s a fun game, can anybody here name the Nobel Prize winner or any of these other illustrious scholars without looking it up?

    Personally, I can’t name any of them, but I know all about Maurice Clarett. Sad state of affairs!

    If you asked me a couple years ago, I would have said that both Gordon Gee and Jim Tressel earned unofficial life tenure in their jobs. Now, they’re both out in dramatic fashion. Its funny how these things work out.

    Honestly the knotty pine was a whole lot of nothing. Went there once and never had any desire to go again despite living two blocks away for years now. Any change is a big improvement.

    I’m a millennial and I changed my own oil exactly ONCE. I can do it myself, but the place I take my car will do the full oil/filter/lube thing for about $20. It would cost more to DIY, plus it would take me all morning.
