I've horrible luck with NYC taxi drivers knowing the city.

By cross street, address, or landmark.

I don't fucking know how to get to the city courthouse, because I don't fucking live here, ugh. It's gotten a lot better in the last 5 years with smart phones, but a lot of them did not know the city, or have GPS up until then.

This guy was clearly doing bad, and for his abuse of authority (use of police DB) should be punished, but was it really a conspiracy? that takes two people planning something, how serious was the guy he was fantasizing with? The judge said there was no evidence of intent, I haven't read all the transcripts, so I don't want to say definitively where it fell.

This is a person that needs help, and to not have the authoratiy of legitimate use of force, but to to be committed seems a little extreme.

Because a lot of us are freedom nerds, and this ruling is interesting in that it was allowed to go to trial, but the judge issued a judgment notwithstanding the verdict that preserves free thought.

As to GP post, yes, they should have tried him for any crimes he committed using the police database, and I obviously assume he's no longer Popo, but this was not an actual conspiracy to commit a crime, locking people up because they are gross under the guise of conspiracy is not the solution to anything.

It's an old headline too, this fucking thing has been floating around the facebook for a while. Pisses me off every time, and I'm a damned liberal.


I assume there was a German press release done in English, and there was issue with translating with the intended effect of "for an hour", but it was translated to "per an hour".

I don't speak German, but I can see how in places those words are interchangeable(ish).

All this talk of preparing to launch a service makes me nervous.

Are they going to drop google play music all access? Because I'm starting to really like it.

The I feel lucky will shuffle through the music I like in various genres whenever I click it. It keeps the sound of a consistent station with music I like, and I reload until it's the type of music I'm in the mood for. I hope the new service is as good.

This is an unauthorized cybernetic announcement.
