I'm flying tomorrow. So if you hear about a plane crash, worry for me. I always worry about flights for some reason. I start thinking about leaving a will and putting all my affairs in order. The problem is you're so dependent on the system when you're flying. If there's a problem and they can't solve it, there's nothing you can do. It's like being an astronaut, something I would never be. I would like a personal parachute and an eject button on my seat. Then at least I'd have a hope, an illusion of self-reliance. I've read too many plane crash reports on wikipedia I think.
I was reading an interesting article about why black and white film is more flattering for some movies than color, and somehow I clicked a link to this. Apparently an internet sensation. Rebecca Black - Friday. You're welcome.
I've removed my link on the left to ars technica. I've gotten tired with how a lot of their articles are news with interspersed author opinion telling you what to think about what's being reported. It's the Fox News of technology websites. It's like the opinion you'd hear if you were getting your news from Sheldon Cooper too. Lots of backhanded condescension. Bleh.
