*Yet another reason I left California in 1992, and never looked back*

The ban goes into effect more than a month after the Los Angeles City Council, citing potentially harmful chemicals emitted via e-cigarette vapors, voted to restrict e-cigarette use in the same areas where tobacco smoking is barred.

"Potentially harmful chemicals", huh? Let's see what those might be…
http://ntr.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/12/10/ntr.ntt203.short

The study showed that e-cigarettes are a source of secondhand exposure to nicotine but not to combustion toxicants…The average concentration of nicotine resulting from smoking tobacco cigarettes was 10 times higher than from e-cigarettes (31.60 vs. 3.32 µg/m3, respectively).

Dumbassery abounds.

The new season of OrphanBlack is up on Amazon, and I got paid a dollar (via a $1 Amazon MP3 Store Credit) to order it!

I'm entirely OK with this.

195,000 on my 1997 M3

Ditto on the cornering, but a new Accord or Camry v6 has about 50hp on me these days.
I let them go first at the on ramp. :)

120,000 miles on my 1993 Mazda Miata MX5. Not bad for a 21 year old car. Still can corner with the best of them. :)

"He said the privately held company took in about $85 million last year, adding it employs about 200 workers during the pepper-grinding season and 60 year-round."

That's right folks – Market Giant and beloved Sriracha manufacturer Huy Fong Foods is a Small Business, with only 60 FTEs in the whole company.

A Southern California city declared the factory that produces Sriracha hot sauce a public nuisance Wednesday night, and gave its operators 90 days to make changes that stop the spicy odors that have prompted complaints from some residents.

Google Community! I Have a QUESTION!

A couple days ago, I posted a video to my YouTube account. 
The security settings were marked as "Unlisted" (Only people with the link can see this video).

In 24 hours, the video gathered 48 views and 3 comments. One comment started off with:

Landed on this video searching for something else "…<topic>…" related, and wanted to throw in my two-cents.  Reason being, is I have done my share of <topic>, and I share your pain brother.  Just hoping to shed some 3rd-person perspective on your situation.

Here's where I'm confused…
The link was shared with only three people, including myself
I didn't share it beyond those two people.
The second person was obligated (and I really do mean obligated*) to not share it.

Before I go leaping to what seems to be the obvious conclusion here (that person 3 shared it), what else would you suspect?
Discuss/Explain?
I'm particularly interested in explanations that also tie up the "I was searching for other <topic> things" aspect neatly.

GO!
