    Makeshift white flags marked the spots where some bodies lay, while others, stripped bare by the force of the crash, were covered by polythene sheeting weighed down by stones. At least one was marked with a flower in remembrance. A look back as Reuters first arrived at the scene of Flight MH17 wreckage near the Ukraine-Russia border: http://reut.rs/1tfcwsQ

    "My dad stole my car."
    "Your dad stole your car?"
    "Yep. He hot wired it. I got a call from the cops that my car was in a high speed chase down the interstate. They ended up spike stripping him, but he still tried to get away. He broke his foot kicking in the windshield. Inside the car they found a whiskey bottle, beer cans, and strip club vouchers. At least he totaled the thing so I got insurance money."

  11. Google just showed off some pictures of its brand-new Amsterdam office.
    Google's offices tend to draw inspiration from the city they're in, like a Stanford-like campus for its California headquarters and a loft space for the Chelsea offices in New York.
    The Amsterdam office features stroopwafel ceiling tiles.
    There are also lots of fun little touches, like neon signs and exposed brick.
    And, of course, a foosball table. Are you legally allowed to have a Google office without a foosball table? We'll consult our lawyers and get back to you.
    Weirdly, some of the meeting rooms are in these mobile-home-type structures within the office, complete with lawn chair and grill.


    Google’s New Amsterdam Offices Are Extremely Dutch

    Google’s offices, though always Google-y, tend to take inspiration from their location. The original campus in Mountain View is sprawling and sunny, like an alternate-universe Stanford. The New York offices, on the far West Side, are industrial and loft-like. (More examples: LondonPittsburghDublin.) And the new Amsterdam offices have stroopwafel ceiling panels.

And with the ability to view Timelines, Groups, and Events, as well as your friend requests, messages, and notifications — in far more elegant fashion than the company’s main app — it can effectively replace the standard app."
