There I was, sitting at the bar staring at my drink
when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to
me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

"Well, whatcha' gonna do about it?" he says
menacingly, as I burst into tears.

"Come on, man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd CRY.
I can't stand to see a man crying."

"This is the worst day of my life," I say. "I'm a complete
failure. I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me.

When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had
been stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in
the cab I took home, there I found my wife with another man and
then my dog bit me."

"So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put
an end to it all, I buy a drink, I drop a capsule in and sit
here watching the poison dissolve. Then you show up and drink the
whole thing!

But enough about me, how's your day going?"

It's why I've advocated for months now that any "humor" of a politicoreligious nature be relegated to the Basement.

Perhaps a story-driven game, not terribly graphics intensive (as that takes much more effort), and one that can be completed within a few hours?

I'm wondering if anyone can take the supplied picture and find a picture of John Cusack (the actor) and photoshop it to look like we had our picture made together. On an author forum I frequent, people keep saying I look like John Cusack. I've got them going thinking we're 2nd cousins  tongue

What do you think the law would look like if it were an API/SDK?

Yep. And programmers need to be the ones who solve the horrid national tax code, and actually make the Paperwork Reduction Act have its desired effect.

Japanese scientists have successfully tested a space cannon that will be used to blast a hole in an asteroid as part of an upcoming mission. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will use the weapon to gather extensive data about the composition of asteroid 1999JU3 that could not be obtained by simply scanning the undisturbed surface. This successful test sets up a launch for next year.

The space cannon is to be mounted on the Hayabusa-2 vehicle, which will carry it to the asteroid, which orbits between Earth and Mars. This is essentially a kinetic impact weapon that relies on an explosive charge to launch a 4lb slug into the surface. The spacecraft will release the weapon, allowing it to float downward while it takes cover on the opposite side of 1999JU3.

The detonation will be triggered remotely before Hayabusa-2 circles back to the impacted side of the body. After the damage is done, the probe will land and scoop up debris from the impact to bring back to Earth.

Sometimes throwing money at problems works. As the Pentagon continues to struggle with cybersecurity, their sci-fi-like R&D department, DARPA, is ready to start writing checks. The agency just announced a competition to build a "fully automated cyber defense system." The grand prize? $2 million.

It's easy to forget how old photography is.

Given that flying, internal combustion engines, electricity, the telephone, and other staples of modern life didn't get cranking until the late 1800s and early 1900s, it's always startling to be reminded how relatively long photography has been with us. But it got started in about 1800.

This picture, a daguerrotype, was tweeted by Paris Savant. It's billed as the first-known picture of Paris. According to Wikipedia, it's also the first known picture with people in it.

After recruiting Will.i.am to help encourage students to explore the world of code, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Microsoft chairman Bill Gates are preparing to take a more hands-on approach. As part of their mission with Code.org, the non-profit that aims to make computer courses more prevalent in schools, both influential tech icons will be contributing tutorials to an "Hour of Code" event slated for early December. Set to coincide with Computer Science Education Week, the Hour of Code is an introductory lesson "designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator." Microsoft says Gates will also participate in a conference call with students.

Organizers are hoping to reach 10 million students with the effort.
