When a user hails a car through Lyft, the user tells you a) where they are, and b) where they're going. Lyft/GM can make sure that they only send out the autonomous vehicles when the route between the start and finish points is well-mapped and navigable by our new robot overlords.
As techological capabilities and mapping data improve, they can gradually increase the variety of routes to which they send out the autonomous vehicles.

Just a reminder - looks like this account is still active.

(Is it just me, or has there been a sharp uptick in spam posters recently?)

The way the sheet arcs around behind him, it's like his rage has developed a gravitational pull that sucked the folder into orbit.

|10 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for the reminder that this was happening.||
And good call on the $41.07.
|11 weeks 1 hour ago||Ugh.||
Which is why I spent my remaining per diem at a bar on the Riverwalk before heading to the airport.
(What are they going go do, kick me out of band?)

Color me shocked.

I saw the Beach Boys 50th anniversary tour a couple of years ago. Unless his condition has improved dramatically, I doubt Brian Wilson will be doing much of anything on this summer tour.

"Now that I'm done with producing offspring (please, God...) I'd love to send them to a new home."
You know, pronoun antecedent basis is a helpful thing.

|20 weeks 2 days ago||Spam, spam, spam, spam...||
In the comments for the "how close are we" diary, there's some spam from a user named JGZ59146. Looks like he's done the same in a few other threads as well.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Beaten to the punch!||
I was about to say the same thing. See, for example, this profile of Ace. (This may also be the first public mention of Ace's ska band?)
Good idea, though. Might be worth re-starting, since there's been some turnover in the last few years.

|27 weeks 3 days ago||1963 Caddy||
When I was in high school (early aughts), my father and I restored one of these:
A 1963 Cadillac convertible. (This isn't the exact car, but it's the right year, model, and color.) I remember that the engine compartment was so big you could literally sit in it while working on the engine.
Driving that thing felt like steering a cruise ship.

Matt Hinton used to do an annual article on this topic, demonstrating that recruiting stars DO matter - players with better rankings are more likely to become all-Americans, get drafted, etc. Here's one from a couple years ago.

Now I know how it feels to be Internet Famous. I'll try not to let it go to my head.

I was hoping they'd name it The Terrarium.

Thank goodness we don't peddle cheap foreign-manufactured goods and licensed schlocky merchandise.

May he and his family find peace.
I've got two young boys, and I can't imagine what his parents are going through.

An automated DMCA bot sent a takedown notice based on somebody's Kathy Ireland avatar. Brian missed the message from his host, so the whole site got taken down.

So he took a hit against Minnesota and hurt his shoulder, now suddenly he's on fire.
Remember this movie?

Everything gets tougher after kids, doesn't it?

There's an open rehearsal at Michigan Stadium on Friday evening. They're prepping the halftime show, which this week features (in addition to the MMB) the brass section of the NY Philharmonic, the Choral Union, and the alumni band.
Even if the music doesn't appeal to you (or the rehearsal is just really boring), it may be a nice opportunity to enjoy some time in the stadium.

They don't get drunk or swear, two hallmarks of high quality schadenfreude.

Outlook actually has a built-in RSS feed reader. Add the mgoblog feed and then you can read it within Outlook, no browser required. If someone walks too close, you can just click over to the Mail pane - much more discreet than minimizing or alt-tabbing away from your browser.
