My (male) primary care doctor was just ARRESTED for multiple sexual assault charges on a female patient! 

Only saw him once for a physical after my last doctor moved, didn't seem creepy.

Need to find a new doctor again.
Amend and resubmit.

I've been surprised a number of times buy men my female friends regard as creepy several times.  #male privilege.   Although, usually when its pointed out, I think, "Oh, yeah, he is isn't he?"  The older fella that spends a lot of time talking to the youngish receptionist, that kind of thing.

the classic 'it's only creepy if she's not interested' thing.
a playah is just a creep who the women like.

No better demonstration of the tragedy of the commons than the workplace kitchen/lunchroom.

Just got an e-mail from 23andME that makes me suspicious that they've been hacked.  Everything looks legit but there's a button they want me to click that is an unusual request.

Could be fine.
Could be just marketing.
Could be some kind of malware.

Didn't click.

I recently volunteered to be on my new city's building department review board.  They told me it almost never meets but now I'm reviewing the building departments proposed revision to the building code.  Its my fault, I noticed during the interview that the their code was more than a decade behind the national standard. 

The have a couple of odd provisions, they retain the authority to waive permit fees for "proposals deemed economically valuable to the City", which seems like an invitation to corruption to me.  They've also got a provision that waives the few for the other governments.  So if the Feds, State, or County want to build something they don't have to pay for the permit.  Not as dubious as the first provision but I think its odd.

I actually don't know if either of these provisions is odd, they me common but this is the first time I've paid any attention to a local building beyond the structural provisions.

Just applied to a new job guarding federal buildings. Fitness exams mandatory, and they pay more for regular time than I get now for overtime, nearing $55k/yr. Union, too.
