I doubt we could live for a year on our food stocks. But certainly a few months if we were desperate enough not to mind the repetition, and a good few weeks on a regular diet. We'd run out of milk first. Then Bacon. Probably because I'd eat it as comfort food. in one sitting. all six packs. I might consider paddling around a flooded supermarket looking to loot bacon.

A friend was complaining about traffic this morning, and out of curiosity I pulled up a Google map and clicked on the traffic option. Sure enough, I saw red and black markings all over the map on her route in.

That got me wondering how Google can create these maps. Where do they get the information? So I looked for the answer on the web.

It turns out that while Google gets some of its information from various departments of transportation, the majority of their information comes from us. When we download Google Maps to our phones, and agree to share data with Google so that they can plot our location on the map, they use anonymous GPS information from our phones to see where we are and how fast we are moving. They gather that data from millions of cell phone users, and load it into the maps they send back to all of our phones. They gather information from enough phones that the traffic data is very accurate.

Cool huh? The more people use the feature, the more accurate and detailed it gets.

That is cool. And a little creepy. Are they also watching us pick our noses in the traffic? Next google app: Boogle, which roads to avoid to reduce your chances of sitting in traffic next to a mucus-miner. I might actually download that.

Don't feed the excess blood that came off the beef while it was defrosting to your cats.

Yikes, is this a candidate for the smell thread? Is cat puke worse than human puke?

no, cat puke is a doddle, but I need to use industrial-strength-hypoallergenic rubber gloves with cleaning products and I found out this morning my left one smelled naaaaaasty. And apparently i don't have a new pair in waiting. Plus, if he's home or less than 10 minutes away, that's his job anyway

The origin of the word 'gossip'.

When a medieval woman was giving birth, she'd have lots of women around her, midwife, mum, sisters, neighbours etc. This would be a social occasion for the women. It was a shared experience. A female only ritual. These women who were there during labour and birth were known as 'God's siblings' which was shortened to 'God's sibs' and eventually became 'gossip'.

Today I learned that sexobon is male. I had been operating on what I thought had been given knowledge that he was female, and this belief dated back to his prior username, even. Musta crossed a major wire somewhere in my brain and attached another user's background to his name. Sorry about that, buddy.
