commented on So Now That Sawant's Ahead, How Many Ballots Are There Really Left to Count?
@3, with only 2 teams, magic number doesn't mean much. (I suppose you could consider write-ins as a third team, but is a write in a win for Sawant or Conlin?)
Plus, no one is sure of the total number of votes in the race right now, which also makes a magic number a best guess fuzzy number right now.
But basically, if there are 22,550 votes left in the race, and Sawant leads by 41, then the magic number is 22,511, (minus more write-ins)

They're starting to scan the barcode off your boarding pass at some TSA checkpoints to make sure your ID matches your boarding pass matches what they have in the system for that ticket.
commented on How Will Self-Driving Cars Change the Urban Landscape?
Even if we owned our own self-driving cars the landscape could be significantly different. You could have your car drop you off at the movies downtown and then drive a mile away to be filed into much less accessable car filing cabinet. Urban cores won't have to provide ugly the human/parking interface. </mudede>
