There are extra fees associated with processing credit cards. They should be able to charge extra for things that cost them extra. As long as the people are made aware of the charges, I don't see a problem.

The are fees for handling and banking cash in many situations. The issue here is that companies have been given a very very long time to stop abusing the right to charge a fee and have consistently used such fees to increase profits rather than cover any actual charges.

They'll find a way to get that extra money back.

No doubt they will in some form or another, I’m just hoping it puts a stop to some of the worst abuses. I’m also sure (as this is based on an EU directive) some company being called out by the EU for pulling that kind of stunt.

Does mean that the more an exercise makes you breath (take intense running versus light lifting) the more weight it makes you lose?

No, as the harder you’re working the more your body relies on glycogen rather than fat.

a mouthful of something cakey and some squash.

I downed some squash and coke

Wait ... squash? Perhaps you can help me with this one. I've never heard of eating squash in the context of a running event. Am I out of the loop?

Squash is a British English term for a diluted fruit juice drink

Oh agreed. There are movies you just want to see on the big screen. Great example : I'm like 1 of 12 people alive who didn't see Avatar. Knowing how Hollywood loves cashing in, I'm banking on it being on the big screen before the 2nd one premieres. I'll watch it for the first time that way.

Practice. Lots of practice. I run a lot on technical trails. People weird out at how fast I can move on rough terrain. I try to tell them it's 50% practice, 50% hand/foot eye coordination, and 50% stupidity. A balancing act of speed and danger.

Oh great, now you're telling me that Zoidberg sexually assaulted someone too?!

We just can't get a break this week!

Ok, I have an idea. Maybe it'll be faster if everyone who hasn't sexually assaulted someone to raise their hand?

This. We aim to be the world's most customer-centric company.

People are always going to want things cheaper, quicker, easier.

We build platforms that scale so they can do these things better.

That's it. Obsessing over customers, amazingly, is a good business strategy. =)

Are you actually an AI running on Aws?

Almost anywhere outside.

I’m a pretty dedicated runner but I think I’m unusual (amongst runners) that I feel at home pounding parks and pavements as I am trails, mountains and open countryside in any weather. It’s incredibly liberating to be fit and confident enough to just look at a map and say “I want to go there today.”
