Central Park West. Probably as beautiful as NYC gets. You can almost see the Ghost Busters building, I think. I used to live right next to it. Ah, memories.

I used to love visiting NYC, and Central Park was definitely one of my favorite places. I was always amazed at how different it felt just crossing into the park - from super busy and tense to unbelievably relaxed.

The cloisters are the same way, except you also feel like you stepped back in time.

Central Park is always the first thing I mention to tourists looking for the "sights" in the city.

It beats all the others by a mile.

One of those places that looks great in every season.

I didn't see an obvious thread for this over in 'Tech' - so, anyway Verge made a graphic.

One nit - Apple shipped machines with VGA for a long time, they just didn't use the de-facto standard connector. They used that goofball DB15 instead of the DE15, which required an adapter, but was electrically compatible.
I'm assuming Apple will ditch that (headphone jack) with their next mobile release. However Motorola beat them to the punch with their modular Moto Z handsets.

Out of curiosity, what is the point of using youtu.be links instead of just linking directly to youtube? I only ask because the first is blocked at my office, while youtube itself isn't, yet everyone seems to use it.

I guess it's an automated thing when getting the url in a phone browser.

It's images like Jupiter's aurora that make me wish I were better at math. I dreamed about working for JPL when I was a kid.

Well, specifically that image is a composite taken by the Juno probe which still enroute to Jupiter. from Hubble (grumph--I failed to check the pic's credit). The aurora part is from the probe's HST's UV camera and was rendered in blue.

Dogs and cats cannot be vegan or vegetarian. If you want a pet that can, get a stick fiddling gerbil.

Corn and bone meal with powdered offal, basically.

Dogs are, like people, omnivorous enough that a well-balanced vegetarian works for them.

Vegan would be a lot harder and probably not work well.

Cats are obligate carnivores. Meat is tasty, tasty murder.

I'm pretty sure gun-metal has the same cultural significance. And....Everybody knows what Hello Kitty is.
