I mean, rocket fuel, jet fuel, and gasoline are *way* more explosive than hydrogen gas, and we have no problems with filling vehicles with any of those.
It still cheeses me off that either city or state law prevents apartments in California from having either coal or propane BBQs, but you can park cars full of gasoline right next to (or under) them. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, but there are problems with hydrogen. It burns between 1000-5000ºF and it's typically invisible. Can you imagine a firefighter responding to a car wreck where you have a fire that's invisible and yet melting the pavement and the aluminum car frames? - Glen Campbell
Wouldn't that cause a whole bunch of smoke and heat distortion in the air? The flames themselves are only a small portion of the visual cues they're using to determine safety. - Jennifer Dittrich

This Restaurant Wants to Be the Worst Rated on Yelp, and the Reviews Are Indeed Hilarious | Adweek
"Owner David Cerretini, who tells SFGate that the promotion is "the best business move I have made in years," says the whole thing started when Yelp blackmailed him. Cerretini claims Yelp called him 20 times a week asking him to advertise. He did, to the tune of $270 for six months. But when he stopped advertising, he claims his reviews turned negative and one of his best reviews even vanished. That, according to Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, is something Yelp is legally entitled to do. So, Cerretini hatched his 1-star plan. Next to a sassy sign explaining how much it charges for extra marinara sauce ($3 for just a splash, $4 if you want some to smell), Botto Bistro lists its various offenses—from charging for bread to lacking ranch dressing—and suggests patrons give it a 1-star Yelp review in return for 25 percent off a pizza." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Beyond press, it has generated some of the best Amazon-esque reviews on Yelp. The site sent Botto Bistro a threatening little letter, but Cerretini refuses to back down, claiming he's attracting higher-paying customers who are quite loyal. Not to mention, damn funny." - Jessie
LOL the reviews: "My experience at this restaurant lasted for about two seconds. I went in, asked them if they have meatballs, and the waiter smirked at me, yelled "you can meet these balls!" and proceeded to flipping the table in front of him. 1 star because I never got to meet those balls...this place doesn't deliver on what they offer." - Jessie
""We don't have ice" "We don't have butter" You know what else they failed to add to that list? Walked in today only to find that they don't carry the iPhone 6 Plus. WTF." - Jessie
Yelp is such a quivering trashheap of a company anymore. I'm glad to see businesses fighting back. They've made it an awful forum for both customers and honest business owners. My stylist gets harassed constantly by Yelp, and one rep actually told her that if she doesn't pay for some service they offer, her business will likely never see any of its positive reviews. How awful. - Hookuh Tinypants
Yeah, Yelp constantly promotes to its users that businesses can't pay for positive reviews, but that weaselly language hides how they actually shake down businesses. - Andrew C (✔)

Kaohsiung mascot competes in contest - Taipei Times
"Greater Kaohsiung’s agricultural product safety mascot currently holds the top spot in the overseas division of a Japanese competition seeking the cutest, “most comforting” or “most emotionally pleasing” mascot. Greater Kaohsiung Agriculture Bureau Director-General Tsai Fu-chin (蔡復進) said the creation of Kao Tung Tung (高通通) was inspired by reports that a Japanese mascot, Kumamon, had created an economic value of more than NT$30 billion (US$992 million). Kumamon, which was created in 2010, represents Kumamoto Prefecture in Japan. The city government has put more than 400 statuettes of Kao Tung Tung on display and aims to promote Taiwan and increase the nation’s international profile, Tsai said, adding that the set of figurines has received many invitations worldwide." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

As I'm spending a lot of time looking back through my DVD collection, I can't help but laugh a little at how much the packaging/information has changed over the years.
For instance, on some of my earliest DVDs, one of the "features" listed is the fact that the DVD has chapters. Even better, some of the DVDs actually include instructions explaining how to use the chapters (use the arrows on your DVD remote...). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

How Etsy Changed the Rules & What It Means for Indie Designers | Shannon Whitehead
"I'm a conscious consumer. I shop second-hand, I limit my consumption of "stuff," and I try to keep my purchases local. I believe in voting with my dollars, and I've gone so far as to dedicate my career to figuring out what that means. On occasion, though, when I'm hankering for a new piece of jewelry or a unique gift I can't find in my local thrift shop, I'll look to Etsy. If I'm going to dish out the cash on a new item, I know that my purchase has more impact if it goes to the local makers who are working on their craft. As someone who is directly involved in the maker movement, I'm somewhat embarrassed to say I didn't pay much attention when Etsy changed its policies last fall. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, CEO Chad Dickerson announced that Etsy sellers could use outside manufacturers to produce their designs. In other words, items sold on Etsy no longer had to be handmade. It wasn't until a few months ago, when looking on Etsy for a new watch that I... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
The thing that drives me nuts is that this wasn't what part of the change was supposed to do. There are a fair number of makers who use pre-fab components, and sometimes that was OK, and sometimes old etsy freaked out. If it was a pre-fab bead or part of a piece of jewelry, it usually passed, but heck no, you can't use pre-made circuit boards to craft wearable tech (which was honestly... more... - Jennifer Dittrich

Meticulous Visual Recreation Of Moon Landing Shows It Wasn't A Hoax
"By using its new dynamic lighting technology, GPU manufacturer NVIDIA has graphically recreated the Apollo 11 moon landing site — and the results are crushing a number of wild claims made by conspiracy theorists. Yes, it's a clever bit of self-promotion, but what NVIDIA Corporation's developers have done is actually quite interesting. To show off the power of its new Maxwell graphics processing unit (GPU), Nvidia's game demo team sought to digitally reconstruct one of Apollo 11's most iconic photographs — Neil Armstrong's shot of Buzz Aldrin as he climbs down the lunar module's ladder." - rönin from Bookmarklet
I'm so tired of people who still think it was a hoax, I'm tempted to build me a big-ass laser. Not so I can bounce it off the reflectors that were placed on the lunar surface for the sole purpose of bouncing lasers and thus prove once and for all that man was actually on the moon. Oh no, I want my big-ass laser so I can vaporise the conspiracy theorists. - Slippy
