There seems to have been plans for standing airline 'seats' for quite awhile. I'm most definitely in the vast, vast minority here, but I would welcome these. After about an hour and a half into a flight, my knees get so damn sore that I can hardly stand it. I just feel so squished-in in economy seating and there's no room to stretch out your legs or even move them around a bit to find a more comfortable position. And I'm short and scrawny at 5'8", 140lbs. And I'm also fit. Once my knees get sore, all I want to do is stand up. I don't care if it's a 12+ hour flight. I'd rather be in those standing seats than a cramped sitting position.

I have always assumed that it was on purpose - - I read a study about eating habits recently that showed that people eat faster and eat more in a loud, distracting environment. The difference was not tiny either - - made a huge difference in both amount and speed of consumption. The authors theorized that the noise and distraction caused people to pay less attention and have less awareness of internal feedback about how hungry or how full you really are.

This is one of my pet peeves. The acoustics are so bad in some restaurants, the sound is amplified just by the walls, bare floor, and even the tables. Not my idea of a good time.

Went to breakfast a new Le Peep today. Besides the muzak being way loud. The 75 year old couple next to me played rap music as soon as their coffee order was in. I moved tables and the staff laughed for an hour.

The loudest restaurant I've been to was The Cheesecake Factory. It was full of people chatting, and the acoustics were terrible - all those hard surfaces bounced the sounds right into my ear drums!

Anyone ever been to a Joe's Crab Shack? The music is extremely loud and geared toward young people. We once asked that the volume be lowered, and this during an off-hour. They refused and so we left for another venue. Haven't been back since.

I'm so old that I remember when fine dining included soft piano music tinkling throughout the restaurant.

Man, imagine how the technology would evolve in the next few years. We'll be at an era where photographic and videographic "proofs" could be meaningless.

Her last name isn't Burr, she's just riffing on Aaron Burr. It's not Scafe either, though she's often referred to as Scafe. Nor does she own a restaurant called Erin's Café, though many people assume so. All of her stories are ridiculous and epic and she is totally worth a follow on Twitter.

This was good on a couple of levels. Funny political humor along with a warning to the masses on just how easy this is to accomplish. This rendition was a project; thus the 56 (automated) hours to accomplish. Existing available software can realistically face swap heads in much less time. It's already a problem for celebrities. Buzzfeed was a good choice for the exposure - let's hope this spreads further.

It amazes me that no one ever mentions the boys of that school. EVERYONE is all "awww poor little girls" and you never hear about the 200 boys that were lined up against the school wall and burned alive with flame throwers. Because boys don't matter.
