You may lose the sea of toxicity, but you also lose cat videos. Is that really a trade-off you want to make?

@olliejones, jokes on you, you're participating in a social network.

It's so sad that we can choose our friends from the entire world based on commonalities of interests and values, rather than the old fashioned way of choosing them based on accident of geography.

But sometimes it's good, because what if you live in a super-rural area, and there aren't really any people who share your interests?

Decision Paralysis

Good point--making no decision is itself a decision. So that's a THIRD option I have to research!

Just out of frame is a bike. It's not locked to anything, so it'd be the easiest to steal, but it might not be fast enough to get to the bomb in time, and it can't carry any passengers. But maybe the time saved in stealing it and the guarantee it won't need to stop for gas will make it the better choice?

Monopoly Fans Vote The Thimble Off The Game Board

2 Comments

Although it was once a common sight around many American homes, odds are, unless you’re an avid sewer, the only thimble you’ve come into contact with recently is the Monopoly game piece. Perhaps it was that lack of relevancy that led to the silver token’s demise: Hasbro announced today that the thimble will no longer pass “Go” in the next generation of Monopoly.

More than four million votes were cast in Hasbro’s “Monopoly Token Madness” contest and the thimble — which has been part of the game’s token lineup since its debut in 1935 — wasn’t popular enough to stay.

“The lucky Thimble has lost its ‘shine’ with today’s fans and will be retired from the game,” Hasbro said.

The company hasn’t yet announced which game piece will replace it among contenders like sunglasses, a typewriter, a hashtag, computer, rubber ducky, and an array of other random (and modern) household items. That result will be announced on March 19, and the newly-updated game will be sold in stores starting this August.

The current lineup now includes the Scottie dog, top hat, car, boot, wheelbarrow, battleship, and newcomer, the cat, which was voted in as replacement for the iron token in 2013.

'Final Fantasy XV' is actually a cookbook

1 Comment
Food is pretty important in Final Fantasy XV -- and it's not just obvious Cup Noodle product placement, either. Meals add to your vitality and strength, increase magical resistances and even offer the chance of more experience points to grow your tea...

You have to be careful doing this. Sometimes, when you push the whisker down, dynamite explodes.

Maybe if I spin it back and forth really fast I can do some kind of pulse-width modulation.

Hey, if I wanna file weekly bug reports because Gmail doesn't have sublabels, that's my prerogative!

But gmail does have sub-labels? It's one of the Labs features you need to turn on, I have used them for the past six years or so.

I mean, your average user isn't going to know that. Still, 1) It's a joke, and 2) I wouldn't seriously want sub-labels; the idea of nesting instead of just giving multiple labels fundamentally goes against the purpose of Gmail, and 3) I just looked and I can't even find it?
wmorrell

It might be a enterprise gmail-only thing. It works as a hybrid of nesting and multiple labels; I have filters to tag stuff from JIRA, and tag stuff from JIRA with "assignee: myname". Tickets assigned to me get both labels, but navigation displays them as nested. Manually assigning a sub-label also applies all the parent labels.

Upon further investigation, it appears to be a plum standard feature that graduated from labs. I'll be in my corner recovering from embarrassment.
