I was at Harris Teeter yesterday to make a quick purpose. Even though I do not have a "club card" there, I still managed to get the discount. Guess how...?
How? - Marie
Cashier used hers? - Christina Pikas from iPhone
That was my guess, too. - Meg VMeg
Don't know what Harris Teeter is but the name makes me smile. Can you imagine being a kid with a name like Teeter? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I loved Teeter! After so many times of shopping there you would get treats. We got our first grill as one of the treats. A whole grill! For free! - Marie
I just put in a famous phone number at the self-checkout... - Julian

No, but I'm interested. Over 10 years ago, Melinda was seeing a psychologist involved with neuro-bio-feedback, who was mapping her brainwaves. Unfortunately, she moved away from the area. - Greg GuitarBuster

On Wittgenstein and Rorty - Shunya's Notes
"Here are two wonderful essays I found in the archives of Prospect Magazine. The first essay, from 1999, is by Ray Monk, British philosopher and biographer of Wittgenstein, who Monk calls "the greatest philosopher of [the 20th] century". In it, Monk explores why "At a time like this, when the humanities are institutionally obliged to pretend to be sciences, we need more than ever the lessons about understanding that Wittgenstein—and the arts—have to teach us." (Also check out Wittgenstein, a quirky-brilliant film by Derek Jarman.)" - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"The second essay, from 2003, is by British philosopher Simon Blackburn, and is an extraordinary exposition of the life and mind of Richard Rorty, a pragmatist philosopher who Blackburn calls "arguably the most influential philosopher of our time."" - Maitani

If I end up with crappy wine, I figure I can always turn it into brandy. In fact part of me is hoping it fails, because I'd really like to build one of these :) http://homedistiller.org/forum... - Ken Morley
Some friends have said they're having an open house over Christmas this year but that everyone's got to bring something homemade. This is partly because they've bought a cider press and want to make some. We've just started some strawberry wine to take around. It's the first time we've done this in maybe five years and we've decided to play around with the sugars, mixing dark and light muscovado with some golden sugar. We think it should be approaching a sweet sherry by Christmas. - Mark H
I can see how a hobbyist can really get into wine making, as there seems to be an infinite number of parameters you can adjust to produce the perfect vintage. :) But the feedback loop can be a little on the long side. Most of my plum wine sources are recommending 6 months - 2 years before consuming! I may need to sample sooner. :) - Ken Morley
In the past we've always used the "can you see your hand through the other side of the demijohn?" method to tell when the wine was done. But because we're impatient it's not been unheard of for us to have a "glass of cloudy" every now and then too. - Mark H
That's a good method! I've put on enough for 50 bottles, so if I end up sampling frequently I should still have a few left to age for a year or two. :) - Ken Morley
Steve C
If you hypothetically don't know too many nursery rhymes 80's songs work in a pinch. Just replace a few words with baby terms. This mornings example: Safety Dance - replace "dance" with "poop" or "toot" and it instantly helps soothe the baby.

Do Parkinson's drugs make people more CREATIVE? Pills that increase dopamine levels may improve artistic abilities | Mail Online
"Parkinson's experts have been noticing a remarkable phenomenon – some of their patients have developed impressive creative talents. The link between Parkinson’s and artistic abilities was brought to the attention of the world two years ago by Professor Rivka Inzelberg of Tel Aviv University in Israel. Now she has completed the first empirical study to verify a link between Parkinson’s disease and creativity, which the study suggests may be down to drugs used to treat the disease." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Bluesun 2600
"Roger Ebert loved movies. Except for those he hated. For a film with a daring director, a talented cast, a captivating plot or, ideally, all three, there could be no better advocate than Roger Ebert, who passionately celebrated and promoted excellence in film while deflating the awful, the derivative, or the merely mediocre with an observant eye, a sharp wit and a depth of knowledge that delighted his millions of readers and viewers. “No good film is too long,” he once wrote, a sentiment he felt strongly enough about to have engraved on pens. “No bad movie is short enough.”" - Bluesun 2600 from Bookmarklet
damn. - Big Joe Silence
What I appreciated about him was that he not only wasn't afraid to have a strong opinion, he also had the willingness to admit that his opinions could change over time and that his initial impressions of something might evolve. His view of GroundHog day was one example. He hated it at first but then came to regard it as a great movie. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

No Extroverts on Mars, Please - http://io9.com/no-extr...
No Extroverts on Mars, Please
"A NASA-funded study has found that there might be serious drawbacks to having a bunch of extroverts on a long space missions. Finally, a win for the introverts. DePaul University professor Suzanne Bell and her researchers reviewed the research on teams in situations that are close to what an astronaut team might find on a mission to Mars, including the over-100-day simulated missions and isolated teams in Antarctica. Bell said that usually extroverts are good on teams because their tendency to speak up and engage with others makes planning easier. She added that because extroverts are outgoing, they know more about their teammates — their strengths and weaknesses. That helps team coordination." - Me from Bookmarklet
The title of the i09 article is (typically for them) rather misleading. The source article also points out that a team composed entirely of introverts would be problematic as well. - Soup in a TARDIS
It makes sense that you'd need a mix of personalities - and ways to resolve the conflicts between them. It isn't like you can easily be totally alone, or with lots or new people, so both groups are going to be out of their comfort zone socially for large portions of the trip. - Jennifer Dittrich

I realize most steampunk is really fantasy, but has anyone ever written a story set in a millieu with a backstory where Babbage *did* build his difference engine and the information revolution started a century early, but the plot is actually set in the 21st century of this alternate history?
Yeah, isn't that pretty much this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oh, you want one like that but set 200 years later. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yup. One of the foundational texts of steampunk is exactly as you described it. - DJF from Android
Yeah, has anyone ever looked at how would a steampunk world evolve over a century and a half? - Victor Ganata
To be fair, the only two books I've read where the steampunk label might actually apply is *The Difference Engine* and Neal Stephenson's *The Diamond Age*. Although China Miéville's Bas-Lag millieu is pretty steampunkish, but he also makes it clear that it's weird fantasy. - Victor Ganata
According to video games, a century and a half later, we get wizards, orcs and magic swords somehow. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
That makes sense, I guess. With steam-valve driven computers, a lot of other scientific discoveries would've probably been accelerated (imagine if Einstein had access to a home Difference Engine) and the nuclear age would've come earlier as well, and from there it's just a hop, skip, and a jump to a radioactive post-apocalyptic setting that creates mutants and unlocks magical powers. - Victor Ganata
I think the very first depiction of steampunk I was ever exposed to was Final Fantasy, which was pretty much a post-apocalyptic setting with goblins and magic and lost technology like airships and mecha, although I guess Final Fantasy VI was the more fully realized epitome of this, and even included trains and mechanized castles. - Victor Ganata
There's a steampunk "Canon" of sorts? What text should I start with? - Brian Johns
