Only God Can Stop Public Urination - The Atlantic - I recently noticed something curious as I drove out of my neighborhood in South Delhi. The road had just been redone and now, on the stone walls that run along either side of the street, about knee-high off the ground, I spotted ceramic tiles with pictures of Hindu gods. There were images of Lakshmi, Shiva, Saraswati, Hanuman, and others of the pantheon, along with saints like Shankaracharya and Sai Baba of Shirdi.

Decoding small QR codes by hand - It's not hard to decode QR codes with a pen and paper. For this guide I'm going to grab a random QR code from google images and show the process of decoding it by hand. QR codes contain a lot of error correction information and they can survive a lot of errors, but that's a lot harder to do using just a pen and paper (and 99% of the QR codes you encounter don't have any missing bits, so it's rarely necessary). So I'll highlight where the error correction information is stored, but I won't explain it in this guide.

Expect More Giant Snowstorms as Climate Warms - The storms that buried the Buffalo, New York, area in more than 7 feet (2.1 meters) of snow this week shattered records and shocked residents — even in a region accustomed to dealing with heavy snow. The storms are certain to provide new fodder for climate-change skeptics who seem to embrace every monster blizzard as evidence that global warming doesn't exist. And yet, the science behind these catastrophic storms suggests that they do not occur despite global warming, but in fact because of it.
