Why the Tomato Was Feared in Europe for More Than 200 Years | Arts & Culture | Smithsonian - http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-cu...
Why the Tomato Was Feared in Europe for More Than 200 Years | Arts & Culture | Smithsonian
"A nickname for the fruit was the “poison apple” because it was thought that aristocrats got sick and died after eating them, but the truth of the matter was that wealthy Europeans used pewter plates, which were high in lead content. Because tomatoes are so high in acidity, when placed on this particular tableware, the fruit would leach lead from the plate, resulting in many deaths from lead poisoning. No one made this connection between plate and poison at the time; the tomato was picked as the culprit. " - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
Aha. I always wondered why they thought tomatoes were poisonous. Thanks. - bentley

Dancing Plague of 1518 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
Dancing Plague of 1518 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Dancing Plague (or Dance Epidemic) of 1518 was a case of dancing mania that occurred in Strasbourg, Alsace (then part of the Holy Roman Empire) in July 1518. Numerous people took to dancing for days without rest, and, over the period of about one month, some of those affected died of heart attack, stroke, or exhaustion." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"The outbreak began in July 1518, when a woman, Frau Troffea, began to dance fervently in a street in Strasbourg. This lasted somewhere between four to six days. Within a week, 34 others had joined, and within a month, there were around 400 dancers. Some of these people eventually died from heart attacks, strokes, or exhaustion." - Amit Patel

Egg Freezing as a Work Benefit? Some Women See Darker Message - http://www.msn.com/en-us...
Egg Freezing as a Work Benefit? Some Women See Darker Message
"Tech companies are famous for their lavish benefits, like in-office haircuts, dry cleaning and massages. Now some of those companies are setting off a debate about women and work with a new benefit — paying for women on the payroll to freeze their eggs." "Yet by paying for women to delay pregnancy, are employers helping them achieve that balance — or avoiding policies that experts agree would greatly help solve the problem, like paid family leave, childcare and flexible work arrangements? “Egg freezing seems to put a Band-Aid on the problem of how difficult it is for women to have a career and raise a family concurrently,” Seema Mohapatra, a health care law and bioethics expert, wrote in August in a Harvard Law & Policy Review article titled “Using Egg Freezing to Extend the Biological Clock: Fertility Insurance or False Hope?” For women whose circumstances have made it unrealistic to have a baby and who are considering egg freezing, the new benefit is likely to be a highly welcome... more... - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Gold mining in Nevada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
Gold mining in Nevada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Gold mining in Nevada, a state of the United States, is a major industry, and one of the largest sources of gold in the world. Nevada currently mines 79% of all the gold in the United States, which is equivalent to 5,640,000 troy ounces (175 t) in 2009" - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"Unlike coal and oil extraction, where mining companies pay royalties for minerals obtained from public lands, gold mining companies do not pay any royalties for deposits claimed on federal public lands. This is because gold mines on public land operate under the General Mining Act of 1872." - Amit Patel
"Many of Nevada's gold mines are located on public land, but the mining companies pay no royalties to the US government. Fighting efforts to have the gold mining industry pay royalties for mining on public land, the local community commission in Elko County, Nevada said that royalties would force mining companies to cut jobs and move elsewhere." - Amit Patel

Poll: You drop a piece of candy on the ground. Do you: (A) Pick it up within five seconds and eat it, (B) Throw it away, or (C) Other
image1.JPG
c: make an art piece with it - Sir Shuping is just sir
B, most of the time - Jennifer Dittrich
B. Always. - Anika
C: don't eat/drop candy - Meg VMeg
B. always - Amit Patel
depends on the candy - hard candy like the one pictured, if sufficiently hard and not too sticky, then A; melty chocolate will most likely be handled with B (but with infinite sadness). - Ken Gidley
Depends on the ground. And yeah, depends on the candy. When I was a kid, we didn't have the five second rule. Instead, we crossed ourselves (it was a Catholic country). All of us kids knew it was safe to eat dropped food if you crossed yourself. :-) - bentley
My answer is similar to Betsy's. :-) - John (bird whisperer)
C, if it's like the candy above I rinse it off. There is no 5 second rule, grossness sticks, but hard candy can be rinsed. - Heather
I suspect Heather's right, but for Jolly Rancher? B. - Walt Crawford
Definitely A - Friar Will
Usually A unless it's a manky floor. A quick visual inspection and blow job normally determines if I have to resort to B. :D - Jenny H. from Android
^^^^ We still talking about candy? or have we switched to "Candy"? - Ken Gidley
Depends on the substrate, but I'd say 95% of the time, B. - Hookuh Tinypants
A. Unless it's sticky and picked up carpet and hair fibers. - Louis Gray
A. for linoleum, tile or hardwood and as long as it's hairfree. Also it depends on the type of candy. - NOT THE CRICKET
A - Janet from FFHound!
D: Pick it up, rinse it off, eat it. - Steve and 4 other people
Pick the carpet/dog hair off and eat it. No time limit. - Ken Morley
B- I probably shouldn't be eating candy anyway. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
B - always. - imabonehead
A or B, depending on the ground/floor/environment. Would say mostly B. - CarlC
(D) I take a picture of it and post about it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Depends on the ground and candy, but I'm probably gonna rinse it off if I can and throw it away if rinsing isn't possible. - Andrew C (✔)

I might curse CSS on many days but today … I discovered I can do this. I had no idea this was possible. The top red bar is a separate div from the rounded-bottom tab. The black line flows and there's a shadow effect. And the curvature! How'd that happen?! I remember border-radius making much more mundane curves than this!
Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 18.48.47.png
The bottom div is display: block; width: 10em; margin-left: 450px; border: 1px solid #000; border-top-width: 0; border-bottom-left-radius: 100%; border-bottom-right-radius: 100%; text-align: center; box-shadow: 0 2px 3px -2px #000; position: relative; top: -1px; - Amit Patel
The border radius made a MUCH wider curve than I expected, which was the nice surprise. The black line flows around this shape by using position:relative and shoving the div up to hide the black border under the first div. - Amit Patel

Oh nice how do like the EM-1? I'm still using the original EM-5. - Rodfather from Android
Are you using a 3rd party lens with an adapter for those telephoto shots? Oh never mind. It's the 75-300mm lens. Amazing shots. - Rodfather
Beautiful. - Jenny H. from Android
Thanks! Rodfather: the main thing I like is that there's a built-in grip, and that helps a *lot* with the 75-300mm lens. I had gotten an add-on grip with the E-M1 but it wasn't nearly as good. The E-M1 has phase detection autofocus, which helps with flying birds. If I didn't spend 90% of my time on the 75-300mm lens, I would've kept the E-M5. The E-M1's ergonomics are a little better, and it has more buttons and features. Image quality doesn't seem any better. - Amit Patel

Credit to user "sizofroid" (http://friendfeed.com/sizofro...) due to his comment on a post from Amit Patel here: http://friendfeed.com/amitp... - Stephen Mack
I don't know if sizofroid fixed this code or not (since both the github repository here and the code it calls on Google Drive are anonymously contributed), but whoever wrote this and fixed it, THANK YOU! - Stephen Mack
Per sizofroid in that comment, this replacement bookmarklet works on Safari as well (but I haven't tested that). My instructions are from the perspective of a Windows Chrome user; if I need to modify any of these instructions for MacOS, please let me know. - Stephen Mack
I don't see anything dangerous in the code (https://googledrive.com/host...) but bear in mind that in theory whoever created this could change the code to be malicious in the future, and in theory possibly add a keyboard logger or blah blah blah so caveat emptor. - Stephen Mack
The code was written by Bret or Paul, no diff from, http://friendfeed.com/share.... It's literally just a rehost. My guess is the only thing that needed changed was http://friendfeed to https://friendfeed in the bookmarklet, as has been required for Firefox for 2 years. - NOT THE CRICKET
Just checked and there is a diff, at line 300 iframe.location has been changed to iframe.src (in the working version). - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah, I see -- thanks for checking, Jimminy. - Stephen Mack
Thanks VERY much all -- it works! Reposted to Quora friendfeeders: https://friendfeeders.quora.com/How-to-... TLDR for Firefox: go to your Bookmarks library, and manually edit the entry for the Friendfeed bookmarklet --change the part of the one-line javascript code from "http://friendfeed" to "https://friendfeed". - Adriano
Adriano, interestingly, just changing the http to https alone doesn't solve it for Chrome, it looks like the other change listed by Jimminy is needed to solve it on Firefox. - Stephen Mack
I backed up both the bookmark code and the bookmarklet code here: http://friendfeed.com/friendf... - Stephen Mack
Thank you, Stephen. \\ Also, the code for rendering embedded YouTube videos is not part of the bookmarklet. It's on the Friendfeed server side, so hopefully a kind FF engineer will fix the problem to work with the current YouTube API. - Adriano
Hmm, for YouTube, I just manually change the URL to http instead of https, and it usually works. - Stephen Mack
THANK YOU - lris
Mike Tyson does not work :( https://friendfeed.com/rsvp... so wondering what works consistently for YouTube. - Adriano
Youtube, has to be posted manually or while not logged in to google. Friendfeed's linkify on the backend only handles http:// links. Google forces https:// on all pages while logged in. - NOT THE CRICKET
Or you can just delete the pesky "s" before posting. - lris
Iris, when posting from the bookmarklet, it doesn't let you modify the URL. And Google will automatically redirect to the secure protocol, so you can't open the bookmarklet on a non-secure page. - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah, my bookmarklet has been kaput for so long I'd forgotten that. :) - lris
So being logged into Google has a hidden side effect, wow, thx. - Adriano
Asking from ignorance: does this work on Macs? - bentley
Adriano, well not all pages, just Google owned sites, like Youtube and stuff. It's pretty common to force logged-in users into using a secure protocol while logged-in as best practices. - NOT THE CRICKET
true, and for Quora pages one must manually append "?share=1" to URL for the benefit of non-Quora viewers. - Adriano
Betsy, it's not a machine problem, merely some bookmark code in the browser one uses. - Adriano
From what I can tell, the iframe.src is a recent Webkit change (effecting Chrome & Safari), and the protocol issue has been prevalent for all mainstream browsers for a few months, due to blocking Mixed Active Content (trying to access HTTP content on an HTTPS page [images get a pass, due to common caching systems]). - NOT THE CRICKET
This is great, thanks Stephen. I've posted an alternate hosting solution for those who want to use dropbox (or extrapolate the idea to other platform to self-host and control one's version of the code) http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Micah

ALERT ALERT my dad has discovered emojii in email. this is the greatest day of my life.
Old-man confusion (I'm the old man in this case, not your dad): Is "emojii" just the hip modern version of "emoticons" or is it something different? (Wikipedia seems to say it's different...) Not that it matters; I can as easily not use emojii as I don't use emoticons. - Walt Crawford

I would "like" it but, as is typical with Google Trends, the total lack of a vertical scale means that we don't know whether "interest" dropped from "so little as to be not worth mentioning" to "even less" or something more interesting. - Walt Crawford
100 = its peak search value. 29 is 29% of peak. - Louis Gray
Louis: Well, sure, I can interpret from the graph that the current value is around one-third of the peak--but the peak doesn't *mean* anything, even if you label it "100." (Heck, you could just as easily label it 1,000,000: it would be precisely as meaningful.) - Walt Crawford
See, to me the concept that "interest has dropped 70% from its peak four weeks ago" is a meaningful stat in and of itself. I understand both sides (people wanting to know how many total searches there were, and Google not wanting to share that proprietary information) but I think all Amit was trying to get across with his post is that there is data to back the impression some of us have discussed here that interest is waning. - Stephen Mack
But if at the peak, interest was infinitesimal, what does it really mean that it dropped 70%? It doesn't seem like it would be statistically meaningful if that were the case. - Victor Ganata
Thank you, Victor. That's what I'm trying to say. It's like sales of ebooks going up 200% from one year to another when sales were $100 in the first year (a mythical example)--just having the numbers (Exploding sales! Up 200%!) doesn't mean very much, statistically or otherwise. - Walt Crawford
I understood that point when Walt first stated it. But Google is intentionally not populating the scale, presumably to keep the data proprietary. In this case, we know there was a flurry of interest in Ello, and we know it dropped. The scale doesn't need to be filled in for Amit's post to prove a point and to be interesting. - Stephen Mack
Oh, I agree it may be of interest, but I'm not certain it's meaningful. Without the absolute numbers, I really think it's impossible to interpret. #MoreStudyNeeded - Victor Ganata
If I knew it was 50 searches per minute, what would I conclude differently? What does 50 mean? - Amit Patel
You're right, even the absolute number isn't much context. Ideally, it would be in comparison with other dominant trends. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Looks like I got the URL wrong for being able to compare with other words and phrases. Try http://www.google.com/trends... - Amit Patel
The comparative trends graph is at least somewhat meaningful; thanks, Stephen. - Walt Crawford

Amit, I have the same thing: correct words are incorrectly "corrected". But the apple type words like Apple (see now it didn't and did correct) are often not capitalized. Plus autocorrect is goofing up, plus the suggestions above the keyboard are sometimes incorrect words or just garbage. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
And sometimes a game starts upside down and doesn't rotate. MS Remote Desktop does that too. Or it does it after a few tries. Always functioned immediately with iOS 7. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

Besides the green beauty that is the Borland (Enterprise Technology Center) grounds, I love that my freeway exit is now "Santa's Village". I love the trees we can see out all of the windows.

Today I walked around the whole entire walkway of all the modules that runs around the third story of the whole complex (which is HUGE). It runs everywhere EXCEPT around what was Phillipe's office.

It's green because they use recycled water on the grounds, but it still feels SO sinful in these drought times. - Laura Norvig
