I admit to being amused at Testing driverless vehicles in San Francisco ... I'm going to need Costco Palate levels of popcorn if they turn that shit loose in Los Angeles.

@toxic It's really funny how many cars around here have Washington plates, but plate frames from a Stevens Creek dealership.

Another one if those things that now that I've seen it, can't not notice.

@juliewebgirl Spent five minutes sitting in the floor at the store while the kid that saw the accident cried all over my shoulder and I rocked him back and forth.
I got him to cry for the first time since the incident and get it the Hell Out.

This was his first death up close and personal. And gruesome at that.

Poor kid.

This happened right across the street. The poor kid interviewed in the video has sold me chips and salsa and beer for the last two weeks. He's a good kid ... NOT cool he and his co-woker have to go through this.

I'll find him later (his manager informed me she sent everyone on that shift home, because she's cool) and see if he wants to talk.

@toxic Fun fact. The rubberized surface of a Thinkpad was originally to keep an Executive's tasty adult beverage from sliding off the pull down table... on a flight.

Not kidding.

@juliewebgirl Jay is going on his first 100mi Bike Ride Tomorrow.

@toxic When Jay went off to College (he's 29) up north I gave him some Orange Ultimate was one of them...he tried to give it back last year but I denied his gesture. I won't take my Frisbee back unless he builds a team.

In which case ... he's earned the Frisbee.

@toxic @doctorwhom So new laptop has a fingerprint reader.

There's a PPA I don't like.

The only thing I don't like about my new Boxen is the 1cmSQ wasted space.

@toxic @juliewebgirl

The coolie surface of Thinkpads is Remarkably NOT potato-chip grease friendly. This has always been true.

"Increased vigilance."

That's a funny way to say, "Don't crash a plane into my plane when I'm on the fucking ground".

@juliewebgirl Figured out my problem with new laptop.

It's a Thinkpad so it's sturdy, I know's why I bought the damned thing.

But it's so Thin and Light.

Mongrel (old Thinkpad) FELT like it was tough. Had some mass. I could smack a Corporate VP in the head with it and deliver a concussion. This new machine I'm afraid of getting a paper-cut carrying it across the room.
