It's a McDonald's Styrofoam cup for me, but I refill the same one for days on end.

And fuck beta
I've learned more about a topic from the comments than I ever have from TFA. Take away the current comment functionality and I'll have to start slumming at reddit.
Hell, get your ham licence and put up a 100' tower. They cannot regulate amateur radio antenna installations, either.

Except for the vast orders of magnitude difference in which speed at which the two move, you're almost correct.
I'm one of those Americans that HAS traveled abroad and I cordially invite you to create your own *technical* site with whatever units of measurement you see fit. The fact that you're even able to complain about this 'problem' is due to DARPA. You know them, they're the US agency responsible for the development of the internet.
Everyone wants to bitch about our units of measurement, but nobody seems to have any trouble accepting our units of currency.
If someone is sitting on their laurels, they've already improved themselves.
I was just thinking the same thing... If the guy was just complaining about bad code in movies, there'd be no interest in his site. The fact that he tells you where the code came from and perhaps why it was chosen is what makes it interesting to me, at least.

But I must admit the ham-handed attempts by Google to force you into maintaining a Google+ presence to go along with your YouTube channel is highly annoying!
You can always make a G+ account just for the purpose of youtube, yet never use it for anything else, right?
Mind you it should be safe from shoulder-surfing, unless you're in the shower and bend over for the soap.
Even still, I would expect them to stop at the wrist or elbow.
I worked on commercial blimps (Bud One, Airship Shamu, MetLife) for several years and you're not the first person to think about re-compressing helium. The equipment needed to compress helium back into a tank would add more weight than practical.
Because we're not all judgmental pricks that think our way is the only way to live. When my 81 year old mother needs a ride to the store, I want her to call me. When my daughter misses the bus home and I'm at a client site, I want her to call me. Just because you're happy to be incommunicado, doesn't make that an option for people with responsibilities. Go pat yourself on the back for being a Ludite and crawl back in your hole.
