If you can get it and defend it, it's yours.

Putin believes this.

Thousands of Europeans Petition For Their 'Right To Be Forgotten'
So you saying this is a case where Google should hide the results, right?
In a perfect world, those passing judgement would only pay attention to the facts brought into court for this particular case. But, due to the ease of searching on the web, jurors are much more likely to look and find information about his past behavior, thus tainting their judgement. So it is people with current legal troubles that are most in need of this kind of protection.
Yelp Reviews Help NYC Health Department Find and Close Dirty Restaurants
The yelp reviews provide a suggestion that there may be a problem; there is a health inspector who examines the restaurant based on the suggestion. If it's a fake yelp review and the restaurant does meet the standard, then the health inspector gives a good grade and there's no problem. On the other hand, if there's a fake yelp review and the restaurant does have problems--well, the restaurant deserves the failing grade; the false yelp review just gets the inspector there sooner than the normal review cycle.
Virgin Galactic Passengers May Just Miss Going into Space
The Karman line is only arbitrary in so far as they picked a nice even number in the metric system which is pretty damn close to the point where winged flight isn't possible without being at orbital speed. If it had been originally defined in the US customary units, it still would have been in the area of 62 miles up.
The Upcoming Windows 8.1 Apocalypse
If they want Windows, why haven't they spent $20 to have Windows 7 installed by the kid down the street so they can actually use the box?
Electric Bikes Get More Elegant Every Year (Video)
The main problem with e-bikes is they don't fit the bicycle category; they're really underpowered motorcycles. One of the first things I noticed in the clip was a brag about being able to go 20mph--most urban bike traffic will be going at half that speed, say 8-12 mph. (For example, one of the local biking groups shows that 18-20 mph is for top cyclist in a paceline.)
These really don't belong on multi-purpose trails or in bike lanes. The speed differential between them and normal bikes is just asking for accidents.
Ghostwriter Reveals the Secret Life of WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange
It stands for the value of 'a' raised to the power of e (roughly 2.71828). Now, while Euler's number is damn sexy, I'm not sure why he kept putting his hands on it...
No. of vehicle license types I hold:
In some locations, you only need a license to drive powered vehicles on public roads, not on private property (the most common example would be farms). So you could go your entire life driving every day without needing permission, provided you never left private property.

Generic TLDs Threaten Name Collisions and Information Leakage

How Ubiquitous Autonomous Cars Could Affect Society (Video)
I'd bet the incidence of human drivers cutting off robotic vehicles increases dramatically.
Followed quickly by a dramatic increase of drivers discovering that performing an act of reckless driving in front of cameras results in suspended licenses and hefty fines, not to mention civil suits from the trucking company for any damage caused.
Hacker Exposes Evidence of Widespread Grade Tampering In India
if you have a test that only scores 50 max and you scale it to 100 obviously you aren't going to have many odd numbers in the results.
The thing is, you'll have no odd numbers when you double the values. It's those odd numbers that only occur up in the 90s that stand out--if they are scaling like your theory, then the scorers are screwing with the upper values. If they aren't, they're screwing with the lower values to make those jagged peaks. (And there's still the issue of the missing "just below passing" scores.)

Intercontinental Mind-Meld Unites Two Rats
North America and South America are different continents...
The boundaries that make up continents are to a degree arbitrary and depend upon the person making the statement. There's no real justification for Europe being a continent; Europe and a large part of Asia are on one tectonic plate, while the easternmost part of Asia is on the same plate as North America. And the Indian subcontinent is on yet another plate.
So, it's ultimately local custom that determines the number of continents. I've seen Europeans refer to the Americas as one continent. For example, the Olympic rings were at one time intended to represent five continents.
The Olympic flag ... has a white background, with five interlaced rings in the centre: blue, yellow, black, green and red ... This design is symbolic ; it represents the five inhabited continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colors are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.
-- Pierre De Coubertin (1931)
(The quote's copied from Wikipedia, so in five minutes it's entirely possible that De Coubertin would have said the flag represents the population of elephants tripling within six months.)
