Marco Rubio Tries To Lecture Obama On ISIS, Commits Epic Error | ThinkProgress - http://thinkprogress.org/world...
"Potential 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) inexplicably told a conservative audience on Friday that President Barack Obama lacked a military strategy to confront ISIS because he feared upsetting Iran, a country that has actually committed itself to defeating the terrorist group." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"In the Senate, Rubio is a member of the Committee on Foreign Relations and the Select Committee on Intelligence." - Andrew C (✔)
App idea: use the front facing camera for a theremin-ish music app operated entirely with facial expressions.

OK, signed up for improv in LA. That'll be nine weekends in LA for me starting the 14th of March. Mostly just taking the midnight bus out on Friday night and the late night (midnight?) bus home on Saturday, though.
They no have good improv in SF? - Spidra Webster
They do, but it's a matter of trying to pass into advanced studies at UCB, which can only be done by taking a 400-level course, and you can only take a 400-level course within two years or less of the last 400/300 level course you took. (edit: being approved for advanced studies is not automatic, all the same, but at least it'll reset my time-since-last-class counter.) - Andrew C (✔)
Awesome! And I know some awesome people there now you should meet. - joey
Alrighty! - Andrew C (✔)
Killer robot apocalypse would be way too easy. Robots that made everyone have to work long hours at soul-killing jobs would be much worse.

Coconut water has to be a prank. A drink that tastes like the back of one's throat? And I can pay $5 for it?

Need your city to have more space? Then how about a bicycle rack that fits on a wall and makes space for pedestrians. Yeah, this makes space for pedestrians … right up until even a single bike is locked up. Then it occupies just as much space as a traditional bike rack. More, actually, since many bike racks are mounted to angle the bikes parallel... - http://f---nobaddesign.tumblr.com/post...

OTOH a white dress could easily photograph as light blue under common-ish lighting setups + camera with incorrect white balance.
If #TheDress was as deep blue as in the store, I don't think any combination of lighting & white balance would photograph it as light blue.

This dress thing is bugging me enough that I might try to duplicate the blue cast issue myself later. I still think it's mainly white, just with a weird color balance issue due to mixing artificial light with daylight in the background.
This illustrates what's going on pretty well. I haven't read the article. Just the 3 photos side-by-side help. http://friendfeed.com/amitp... - Spidra Webster
Yeah, but even blue-shifted, it's noticeably less saturated than the actually blue dress. - Andrew C (✔)
I wonder why FB's trending topics thing has a 12-24 hour delay. #llamadrama
FB got to white-gold/blue-black now, though I think it never did get to the llama thing. Maybe their smoothing system can't detect short blips? - Andrew C (✔)

Wait, is that the question? Which one wasn't tampered with? - Meg VMeg
No, this tweeter color-corrected both images (the other didn't import to FF). In one, he pushed it more towards white-gold, the other towards blue-black. - Andrew C (✔)
But arguably the color cast from the background coulda been yellowish from sunlight while the dress itself was light by fluorescent lights or something. - Andrew C (✔)
I feel like you have to color-correct much, much harder to get it over to blue/black. - Andrew C (✔)
RT @limitedpaper: Let's take a moment to acknowledge how hilarious it is that a BLADE RUNNER 2 announcement has been trumped by a shitty optical illusion.
I thought that was the announcement. Clearly some sort of Voight-Kampff-esque test. - Jennifer Dittrich

YES - Meg VMeg
Okay, this is not a good example: http://www.romanoriginals.co.uk/invt... - Meg VMeg
Worse, the shop clearly took one pic and photoshopped the others... Given that there's video in the white dress, though, probably the white one was the original. - Andrew C (✔)
Swear to god, this is a social media experiment. Maybe to see to what degree social media can make me insane? Whoever is behind this will suffer. - Meg VMeg
Xavier Rathan-Mayes erupts for 30 points in four-plus minutes | The Dagger - Yahoo Sports - http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs...
"Inspired by his teammate's words, Rathan-Mayes unleashed a late-game shooting display that will linger in the memory of those who witnessed it long after they've forgotten that Florida State still lost 81-77 in spite of his heroics. The 6-foot-4 guard scored 30 points in the final 4:38 of Wednesday's game, a stunningly swift barrage that included six 3-pointers, a pair of layups and eight free throws." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
I'm still on team white/gold, but this pic means there's either another dress in same style, diff colors, or... http://swiked.tumblr.com/post...

That's a different picture, though. I saw it white and gold on a tweet, but now it's black and blue. - Anika
Diff picture, but supposedly of the same dress. I dunno, I only see the original pic as white/gold. - Andrew C (✔)
I think the dress' apparent blue color cast is just because the camera did a bad job color correcting for indoor light.
Oh… Vancouver already ranks in the lowest tier for sunshine hours: http://earth.rice.edu/mtpe... I always kinda hoped there was less somewhere.
