I tip inversely to the amount of odor in the car, be it the excessively potent air freshener (eau de carcinogen) or the smell of the driver's last five meals lingering about. It's really unpleasant to have an olfactory experience on your journey somewhere and a lack of odor is rare these days and deserves reward.

Also why the hell aren't you tipping Uber Drivers? If their car doesn't smell I tip them too. Newbies might say they can't accept it, but they don't exactly come running after you if you leave a five spot on the passenger seat.

things are pretty sad with the world if we have serious concerns that recommendations to take 10,000 steps in one day might hurt someone.

    The whole drink 8 glasses of water a day thing is probably more of a risky recommendation for certain pre-existing conditions, but c'mon. Any health / exercise recommendation should be taken with caution if your health is on the far end of the bell curve.
This is a ridiculous criticism.

Define spies. Google has turned data over to the feds that has led to US citizens being arrested. Google cooperates with China's great firewall policies and therefore contributes to human rights violations. Google is as evil as they come when it comes to data security and protection, do not consider your data secure with them.
