I just started playing chords. Eventually someone gave me tablature. I just never had a reason to learn to read music for guitar. I can read sheet music for Cello and I can tell what each note is, I just don't know how to play it on the guitar :)

My dad's workplace had a Paternoster. Still remember the thrill of not getting off at the last stop (basement or top floor) and even after many rides being afraid that the cabin would be turned on its head :)

You'd think this is some kind of internet prank.... you'd be wrong. http://churchix.com/

I liked Obama's quote:

    “Progress on this journey often comes in small increments, sometimes two steps forward, one step back, propelled by the persistent effort of dedicated citizens. And then sometimes, there are days like this, when that slow, steady effort is rewarded with justice that arrives like a thunderbolt.”

No 8 Amazon has a building named "Wainwright" after the first customer who bought the book shown.

No 12 Personally, I am thankful that it didn't end up being named "twttr".

So my wife took a truffle making class with this guy: https://www.chocolateman.com/

He also offers a lot of different, international brands and varieties of chocolate, so we are trying a bunch of new stuff every time we order from him.

I do like Lindt and I don't think there is a lot that's available OTC that surpasses it.

Can you edit the title and say that it is Lastpass that was hacked?

I use Lastpass. I looked into how it works, before I signed up. My Master-Password is over 20 chars and I use 2-factor auth: I'll stay there unless anything substantially changes.

Well, and access to birth control paired with good sex-ed certainly helps as well.
