When you are at a party and are thrust into conversation with someone, see how long you can hold off before talking about what they do for a living. And when that painful lull arrives, be the master of it. I have come to revel in that agonizing first pause, because I know that I can push a conversation through. Just ask the other person what they do, and right after they tell you, say: “Wow. That sounds hard.”
NEVER EVER EVER ASK SOMEONE WHAT THEY DO ... I NEVER HAVE ANYWAY; IT'S GOING TO BORE THEM AND YOU

We got the classic cheese steak: steak, caramelized onions, and cheez whiz. We also added mushrooms. The steak at Tony Luke’s is thin cut rib-eye (never chopped, they say) and the whiz is Kraft Cheez Whiz. Branded stuff here. It still tasted pretty great, but really feels like a Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese version of real macaroni and cheese. .... peppers were an essential palate cleanse

As of June 30, 2014, working capital was $327.4 million, compared to $341.5 million as of December 31, 2013. Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 were $219.5 million and $525.2 million, respectively. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents reflects lower than anticipated revenue growth in Mainland China, and cash payments for inventory and accrued selling and other expenses. ...

In addition, we have approximately $80 million in debt that will become due in September. If we are not able to refinance or extend our current lines of credit in a timely manner, we may need to defer certain capital and operating expenditures, dividend payments and stock repurchases. The majority of our historical expenses have been variable in nature and as such, a potential reduction in the level of revenue would reduce our cash flow needs, although these reductions may not allow us sufficient free cash flow to pursue all attractive strategic initiatives. In the event that our current cash balances, future cash flow from operations and current lines of credit are not sufficient to meet our obligations or strategic needs, we are unsuccessful in obtaining additional financing, or we otherwise deem it appropriate to strengthen our balance sheet, we may raise additional funds in the debt or equity markets or restructure our current debt obligations.

BLOGGERS POSTING BOND IN SING, DISNEYLAND WITH THE DEATH PENALTY DOESN'T FOOL WITH DISSENT
Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.
Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.
It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.

Of course, the star performer of this show is that beautifully gigantic 5.5″ screen. I believe the specification goes something like “401 PPI”, which means sharp in English. Text floats microns under the glass and every bit of the screen is perfectly sharp. I’ve been able to find details in my photographs that I normally would only see on my Retina MacBook Pro. Reading text is so easy on the eyes. Colours pop even better than before. I could go on forever about this screen.

The $45 open-source router automatically directs all data that connects to it by ethernet or Wifi through the Tor network, hiding the user’s IP address and skirting censorship. It’s also small enough to hide two in a pack of cigarettes. Germar points out that its rounded corners means it can even be stowed in a bodily orifice.
