By the power vested in me, I now pronounce today an honorary Monday.

So, I've been thinking about batteries and their devices, and I've come up with the embers of a proposal:
All devices with rechargeable batteries must use a standardized battery, off a list of 10 (roughly) specifications, and must interoperable. Any device that does not use a interoperable standardized battery must include a 10$ surcharge, and mention the surcharge and reason in all packaging/marketing material.
There is no reason my phone battery (1380mah, 3.7v lion) and my camera battery (1100mah, 3.7v lion), have completely different connectors, despite being within 2mm of each other in every dimension. There is no reason that I can't use a Makita 18v lion battery in my Milwaukee 18v lion drill, nor my neighbor's DeWalt 18v lion nailer. There is no reason that I have to buy a new bluetooth headset, just because I've burned the battery out, again. I've been trying to come up with something useful to do with the millions of dollars that fee will bring in, from apple if nowhere else, and the best I've come up with is spending it to hire professional wrestlers to beat up the CEOs of corporations that refuse to use standard batteries.

SOPA/PIPA are attempts to extend the MPAA/RIAA's lifespan in an era when their business model no longer applies. IP must be strongly protected, but censorship backed with criminal penalties for honest mistakes is not the right approach. Several of the major studios have already demonstrated that they cannot be trusted with the power granted to them under the DMCA, usually by flagging content that is clearly parody. I do not believe it is wise public policy to give people more power when they have demonstrated the inability to handle the responsibility for the power they already have.

That is a particular brown, for a particular candidate, with a particular problem.

Computer virus hits US Predator and Reaper drone fleet
“We keep wiping it off, and it keeps coming back,” says a source familiar with the network infection, one of three that told Danger Room about the virus. “We think it’s benign. But we just don’t know.”
..... I hope to god this is a terrifying attempt at "comedy".

!!!NWS!!!Danny Guthrie Portfolio
So, the story I've gotten behind this is the older dude is Danny Guthrie, a prof at MSU. I'm split on this, and am curious what others think, art or creepy (or a bit of both)?
ETA: I figured I should add a bit more descriptive text. This older dude is posed with models, mostly naked, mostly implied or stated to be his students.
