Breath Test For Pot Being Developed At WSU

I don't think that even a Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd concert has required the band to take evasive action due to deer jumping onto the stage.

Deer, no, but Phish regularly encourages the audience to Run Like an Antelope, so perhaps the danger is not on stage?

Why CurrentC Will Beat Out Apple Pay

phishen Re:Relax - CurrentC will Support using Credit Card (631 comments)

I used it at McDonald's last night. I had no idea what to expect, but was exactly as simple and uncontroversial as I had hoped. I asked if they took Apple Pay and the guy at the register said he didn't know if the terminal was working. I figured I might as well try so I just took my phone out of my pocket and placed it on top of the terminal. The screen immediately came on with the credit card selection screen that looked like Passbook with a message that said "Touch ID" so I touched it. Then a few seconds later it was all done. Quick and easily the smoothest transaction I've ever made.

I think I agree with a lot of the people making statements about how the only thing we are looking for as consumers is a way to simplify the purchasing process not complicate it. It took less work to pay this way than it did to pull my card out and swipe it. I hope the merchants wise up.

GoPro Project Claims Technology Is Making People Lose Empathy For Homeless

phishen Re:perception (320 comments)

I don't know about the Mexico bit, but pretty much all homeless people I see by the side of the off ramps fit the bill described above. There was this one lady that always hung out in front of a shopping center near my friend's place giving the same story about trying to save up enough for a bus ride across town. We saw her for months, and I joked that she could have walked there by now. Well, my friend actually stopped to talk to her, let her know that we'd been given the same story by her for months, and actually asked her why she didn't just walk there. The lady looked embarrassed. We never saw her there again.

IRS Can Now Seize Your Tax Refund To Pay a Relative's Debt

phishen Re:Bush Vetoed this, apparently (632 comments)

And yet these are exactly the kinds of bills that have been applauded in recent time. Even when anyone agrees that a great portion of a bill like this is beneficial, when they question even the smallest part of it or whether the entire bill was considered by everyone who voted for it, they are labeled a hater.

Will Living On Mars Drive Us Crazy?

phishen Wouldn't work on me (150 comments)

I don't think I could correctly participate in the experiment because I'd know if anything went wrong that it would all be over soon, and if anything really went wrong they would open it up and rescue me

Now if they told me I was going to fly to Mars and put me in a simulator that made me feel like I was actually lifting off and going into space (and I didn't know it was a simulation) I'd probably fall for it. Sounds like a better experiment to me. Actually, I think that's a J. G. Ballard short story already. Oh well.
