1. It’s distracting. And you know talking to you is the only time I feel clear and calm, like I might actually get better.

    I was wondering why Jemma touching his shoulder is such a big part of Fitz’s coping mechanism.

    And then I realized

    He’s alive.

    The last conscious feeling Fitz had before the explosion was Jemma touching his shoulder.

    Upsetting.

    Oh.

  4. In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.

    A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.

  8. All signs point to the fact that cable companies, and especially these particular cable companies, are among the worst firms Americans deal with, at least in part because local monopolies have no incentive to treat their customers humanely. How, then, could increasing their market power possibly be good for consumers?
     
    Consumer watchdog groups are certain that it would not be.
     
    “When you put two bad companies together, they don’t remain equally bad. They get worse,” said Harold Feld of Public Knowledge, a consumer advocacy group. “And there’s a multiplier effect. Instead of just bad plus bad, you get badness squared.”

  9. Common Cause and more than 50 other advocacy groups this week called on Google to end its affiliation with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a group that has pushed state laws limiting the rights of cities and towns to create community-owned broadband networks. ALEC also opposes network neutrality rules that Google used to be a staunch supporter of and last month urged the FCC to quickly approve Comcast’s purchase of Time Warner Cable without imposing any regulatory conditions on the merger.

    Google silent on support for group opposing net neutrality and muni broadband

    ALEC is so profoundly evil, and so profoundly anti-consumer, it’s so disappointing that Google supports the organization. What ever happened to Don’t Be Evil?
