"At this point in the deposition, Heimann shows Brin the March 9, 2007 email from Eric Schmidt to Steve Jobs, assuring Jobs that the Google recruiter Jobs complained about had been summarily fired, and that it won’t happen again." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

That feels about right (even extending that down here.) You've got expensive houses, mid-range neighborhoods, and low-income housing mixed in together. It would probably be even more integrated, but there's been a surge in lower-income rental apartments, and those are a lot more population dense. - Jennifer Dittrich

The more I think about it, the more it seems Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) are basically just like any other electronic deposit account, except without the protections. (No fraud protection, no FDIC, etc., etc.) You might as well mail people gold through the USPS.
At least you get a tracking number. - Tinfoil 2.0
If it's good enough for Jimmy Carter... - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I also think it's a way to avoid taxation. We have a goods and services tax which is 10%. I am yet to get a firm answer from any vendor who deals with Bitcoin locally (coffee shops etc) or people I know who deal in Bitcoin locally if they pay/collect that GST on their transactions. - Johnny from iPhone
I guess if you never cash out and use your accumulated Bitcoin to buy things directly, you're fine, but you'll get taxed the moment you convert back to a fiat currency (although perhaps at more favorable rates) - Victor Ganata
But that's the thing, if I buy a coffee, the business is suppose to collect the GST. It's essentially a black market tool. If it exists as a batter method that's outside our taxation system, that could have implications for businesses - Johnny from iPhone
Yeah, it's going to be pretty jurisdiction dependent. In the U.S., at least, the IRS hasn't given any specific recommendations yet. From what I understand, if they rule it's a currency, then it gets taxed as earned income. If they rule it's a commodity, then it gets taxed as capital gains. As far as sales tax works, I have no idea how the states and municipalities are going to handle it. - Victor Ganata
The small print I've seen on a live "we accept Bitcoin" ad in SF mentioned that taxes are assessed as the exchange rate is calculated, at whatever the local rate is - so the customer does pay whatever tax they'd be responsible for. That was a very visible, commercial deployment, however. - Jennifer Dittrich

Which is Worse: A Game of Thrones Spoiler, or Detention? -
Which is Worse: A Game of Thrones Spoiler, or Detention?
"A French mathematics teacher is said to have devised a powerful technique for keeping classroom chatter to a minimum: Whenever his class gets too noisy, he simply writes a spoiler from Game of Thrones on the board. As in: "Oh, you haven't finished reading A Storm of Swords? LET ME TELL YOU EVERYONE WHO DIES." According to Belgium's Nieuwsblad, the teacher, at wits end with his noisy class, asked which of his students watched Game of Thrones. Around three quarters of the students raised their hands. "Well, I've read all the books," the teacher replied. "If there's too much noise, I will write the names of the dead on the board. They are enough to fill the whole year and I can even describe how they die." When students in the class decided to test him, he delivered on his word, writing the names of everyone killed through the end of the series' third season, "for those who [had] not seen it." This resulted in what one student described as "a religious silence" for the rest of the... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
I just placed my wedge-shaped mattress topper on my bed, complete with fresh flannel sheets. I sense that the nap bus is heading my way. Hopefully it has seatbelts 'cuz I'm afraid I'll slide out of bed if I'm not strapped in!
Also, "fitted" sheets aren't fitted for this situation. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
Just to explain, the wedge-shaped mattress topper will hopefully minimize the borderline sleep apnea issues I have. Fingers crossed. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
[Next morning] I do believe I slept for 7+ hours last night! I can't remember the last time that happened. We may be on to something here... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Very nice. Yeah, I have an adjustable bed with a really thick mattress, and I have to put the fitted sheet back on every morning (on top of the fact that I usually have to buy special sheets with extremely "deep pockets"). It's a bummer, but it's worth it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
My then-spouse used those elastic mitten keeper strap things (with a metal clip on each end to attach the mitten to the coat sleeve) to attach the edge of the sheet on side to the edge on the adjacent side (across the corner underneath the mattress) and that worked pretty well. (I don't think I could have used more words to describe that even if I were getting paid by the word.) Anyway,... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
If it works then the sheets are a minor problem. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Yeah, by the time the "tooth wear" problem shows up, the sheets are probably ready for the rag bin (or the paint cloth bin.) It beats waking up in the middle of the night feeling like you're being choked or kidnapped by the elastic of your now-unbound fitted sheet. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I have to immediately jump the nap bus when I change the bedding. Athletic sleep training. - Janet from FFHound!
Thanks Laura! That's just the ticket! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Janet, that's a good way to think of it. I feel better about it now. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I made my own, similar to the ones LB posted, from sew-in garters that I bought at a fabric store. Just sewed 2 together so they had the clips at both ends. Much better quality clips that way. Also went 1 size up so that I am putting queen size sheets on a full sized mattress. That took care of the issue with the corners not being deep enough. - April Russo

I wonder how far away we are from a cheap chromosomal microarray test that can quickly tell us who will and will not respond to certain common medications.
Probably never, though, since all the DNA chip companies are moving on to quick, cheap full sequencing. - Victor Ganata

Ken and Anika. I have a great summer vacation for you both! We need new driveway stone, Anika can run the roller equipment. Ken, my deck and home are in serious need of power washing. I will provide room, meals, beverages! - Janet
