Proposal - a flying class between Economy and the very expensive Business class. It'd be $100 more than economy and do nothing more than give you a few more inches of leg room. Each row of Legroom Class would bring in $600 extra for the airline so could pay for the loss of a couple of rows, right?

I'm with #16 on this one, at least regarding MS, specifically. I'm thrilled anytime I can pick up a contract there. But I see the general point about being forced to contract.

Nice Times article about the myth of night time spider bites.…

Talking about 'beta'! Mercer Island to Seattle doesn't seem to work at all. Just get error message 'We could not identify a connection between your starting point and your destination..." for any two addresses I could come up with between MI and Seattle.
Not to mention, when I typed in 'SE 28th St' (north end of MI), it let me select from a list but then showed me the Bellevue one instead on the map. These were the mistakes I found with ten minutes of poking around.

'Sittlichkiet'. Nein. 'Sittlichkeit' ('keit' adding a '-ness' sense onto 'Sittlich', or customary).
Tsk, tsk, rookie mistake. You know the bombastischen Arsch-hats are going to be lying in wait when you use foreign terms!

'Video synced to surroundings' claim sounded very cool, so pretty disappointed by what I saw at the performance. Footage looked extremely generic to the region. I hope & pray we'll be able to see some visual patterns emerge in the display that give a sense of parrying or at least acknowledging its setting. And for god's sake, why not also have real-time feeds coming in from remote cameras? (Or even from NW webcams. The WaMu falcons, digitally remixed, would've been cool to see, no?)

I agree, 9, this letter was probably photoshopped.

I'd never gotten a flu shot till yesterday, since that's not a type of sickness I get. However, I fell for the "don't be the contagion-spreading dick" argument.

Really, really interesting story. -)
