The bartender switched the TV from the women' s Wimbledon final, to Netherlands-Costa Rica. WHAT KIND OF A SPORTS BAR IS THIS?
Other patrons where giving us the side-eye for our enthusiastic support of Eugenie Bouchard. :) - Ken Morley
Don't blame the bartender for the final not being shown live. It was over before Argentina/Belgium started. - Kirsten from Android
A great one!! :-)) - Sepi ⌘ سپی
Our last night in NYC, went to the Comedy Cellar and Aziz Ansari and Judd Apatow dropped by.
Is it always like this or did we just get extremely lucky? - Ken Morley

I can not believe the scale of the Metropolitan Museum. I spent 5-6 hours, and probably saw about 20% of it. - Ken Morley
Ken is one of those places that every time I'm in NY, I visit!! I always see something new!! :-) - Sepi ⌘ سپی
This was my 2nd visit. The 1st time, I wandered around without a map. There were whole huge sections I totally missed. :) - Ken Morley
Toasting #unclerobert on his birthday. Best wishes on your 88th uncle Robert!

Also, you appear to have a small ball of fusing hydrogen right next to your ear. - Slippy: Paused

The wine is so much cheaper here than at home.

Don't judge me. - Ken Morley
I'll judge you. You know a good a value when you drink it. - Todd Hoff
A $25 bottle here would be like $40-$50 at home. - Ken Morley

There are fights in baseball, but they mostly involve guys coming out of the dugouts and milling around and posturing. - John (bird whisperer)
If you're lucky, someone will be ejected and throw a cooler of ice out of the dugout. - Jennifer Dittrich
There's lots more audience singing, for one thing. At least at Sox games. - Soup in a TARDIS
There are fights in baseball, but they're usually in the parking lot and don't (usually) involve players. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
In answer to the text of the original post: "Thank God." - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
It was an exciting game. The Nationals fans sure are passionate about their team. :) - Ken Morley from FreshFeed
Poor Rockies. - Joe
poor hot dog - chaz2b
Also, the dogs were good. :) - Ken Morley
On rare occasion, you do see a good pile up fight, with all the players rushing onto the field to get into it, from both sides. But it's very rare. http://www.youtube.com/watch... - April Russo
One of my superpowers is delaying gratification.
Are 50 yr old marshmallows safe to eat? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Ken Morley
define safe - Me
Will not kill me dead. - Ken Morley
not instantly, that's a benefit of delayed gratification. - Greg GuitarBuster
LOL! - Ken Morley
There is a market for 50 year old marshmallows...the hot chocolate and breakfast cereal industries have been buying & reselling them for years! - April Russo
They're magically delicious. - Ken Morley
Jenny's Chris Moore encounter reminded me of this Woody Allen clip. http://www.tubechop.com/watch...

I need to get some sort of trellis for mine before they get too big :D - Jennifer Dittrich
Bamboo poles work well. I tie the vines about every 9 inches or so. They got to be about 7 feet tall last year. :) - Ken Morley
I upcycled old wire shelving and tendrils are clinging! First lil cukies are visible! - daveeza
Interesting, they don't grab on to the bamboo at all. I wonder if I bored a few holes and poked some coat-hanger wire through if they would latch on? - Ken Morley

Hairy ball theorem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hairy ball theorem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The hairy ball theorem of algebraic topology states that there is no nonvanishing continuous tangent vector field on even-dimensional n-spheres. For the ordinary sphere, or 2‑sphere, if f is a continuous function that assigns a vector in R3 to every point p on a sphere such that f(p) is always tangent to the sphere at p, then there is at least one p such that f(p) = 0. In other words, whenever one attempts to comb a hairy ball flat, there will always be at least one tuft of hair at one point on the ball. The theorem was first stated by Henri Poincaré in the late 19th century." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet

Game Theory Makes New Predictions for Evolution
"In what appears to be the first study of its kind, computer scientists report that an algorithm discovered more than 50 years ago in game theory and now widely used in machine learning is mathematically identical to the equations used to describe the distribution of genes within a population of organisms. Researchers may be able to use the algorithm, which is surprisingly simple and powerful, to better understand how natural selection works and how populations maintain their genetic diversity." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet

If the World Began Again, Would Life as We Know It Exist?
"Gould saw the incredible diversity of the Burgess animals and theorized that life today would have been different had history unfurled in another way. Random mutations and chance extinctions—events Gould called “historical contingencies”—would build on each other, he suggested, driving the evolution of life down one path or another. In Gould’s view, the existence of every animal, including humans, was a rare event that would have been unlikely to re-occur if the tape of life were rewound to the Cambrian period and played again. One of the paleontologists—Simon Conway Morris of Cambridge University—whose work on the Burgess fossils was heavily cited by Gould in his book, strongly disagrees with this viewpoint." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
"Conway Morris believes that, over time, natural selection leads organisms to evolve a limited number of adaptations to the finite number of ecological niches on Earth. This causes unrelated organisms to gradually converge on similar body designs. “Organisms have to configure themselves to the realities of the physical, chemical, and also biological world,” he says. In Conway Morris’s... more... - Ken Morley
"Both scholars recognized that convergence and contingency exist in evolution. Their debate instead revolved around how repeatable or unique key adaptations, like human intelligence, are. Meanwhile, other biologists have taken up the puzzle, and shown how convergence and contingency interact. Understanding the interplay of these two forces could reveal whether every living thing is the... more... - Ken Morley

The Medieval Origin Story of the Balcony
"The hourd was a mountable, wooden scaffolding that was installed on the upper walls or towers of a castle when a battle was imminent - sometimes even during battle. Quick and easy to assemble, this proto-plug-in architecture added an extra layer of protection while providing a way to flank attacking forces from up high, and allowing defenders to see over the wall without exposing half their body. With the hourd attached, the castle crenellations were like doorways leading onto the balcony-like defense, whose covering was typically clad in slate tiles and the occasional wet animal skin (or even manure) to protect defenders from the slings and arrows of attackers while dropping rocks on the maniacal hordes trying to breach the castle walls." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
