It's not very popular.

What the heck happened on August 15th?? $859k in sales...which is over double the next highest date, and about five times a typical daily haul??

@6, @9, It isn't clear from the Safeway stabbing article how out of line the employee was (i.e. there isn't much information provided). He confronted the shoplifter (potentially a totally reasonable action), and then a fight occurred. It's possible that the shoplifter attacked him (shoplifter's fault), or that both of them escalated the situation (employee's fault). No information is given on why the employee gave chase into the next-door parking lot (it sounds like a stupid move by the employee, but not a "stabbing" move, necessarily) or whether someone attacked the other at that point. Saying it is or isn't self defense is quite premature given scant information. I'm glad we have courts that aren't made up of SLOG commenters.

You can make your own sprouts!

Sounds like a hookup app where it's less awkward if there isn't chemistry that leads to something more. It's like a built-in excuse to "just cuddle". But presumably most people would be using it hoping for more.

I like the golden asshole rule. But yes, people should always feel free to recline. The seats only recline a small amount (4" at the headrest, 0" at the waist pivot, so...about an inch at the knee). It's always the right of the person in front of you to lean back those measly couple inches if it makes them more comfortable. I feel like many people commenting otherwise either rarely fly or enjoy getting into confrontations. If you get filled with rage when the person in front of you leans back that little bit you shouldn't be flying, or at least not economy, because there is much shit to put up with on an economy flight without even counting seatbacks.

Or: "...drones are replacing combustibles and buoyant gases."

Helium is a gas that's markedly lighter than is an equivalent volume of most of the gases that comprise air (basically nitrogen and oxygen). So even when helium is under a similar pressure as air (like in a balloon), it accelerates (or exerts a force) upward. Like oil in water. Or like hot air in cold air.

Will someone swoop in and save it already, please?

So will the 430-acre (2/3rds square mile: HUGE!) Weyerhauser hq become a park or horrific suburban sprawl?
