Captain Eo Returns

First, from Steve we have this video of someone busted stealing WiFi. You only need to watch the first half unless you want a lecture on unsecured networks. But this lady is a riot — not only is she busted, she’s proud of it. And admits she’s cheap. Gotta love her honest dishonesty. (I’ve been […]

USA 5, Canada 3: A Game for the Ages

The USA versus Canada hockey game was one of the best ever. Intense, exciting, invigorating, captivating, energetic, awesome! This game is what all hockey games should aspire to be. It’s definitely one of the five best I’ve ever seen. Probably the second best and only because I must give the edge to the 1980 Miracle […]

Face Plant

I shall start off with an embarrassing story. I went bowling today — got three of my worst scores in memory — with Timmy. Karen did a no-show. So Timmy goes first and, since there are no practice frames, bowls a lousy five in two balls. I am amused, so I go up slide forward […]

Monster The Book Review. People From Texas

I like my pharmacist. I went to pick up my refill last night at Walgreens. He wrote me a note with a little happy face on it. I smiled. When was the last time your pharmacist made you smile? Yay Vinay! Everyone has a friend who’s gone off the deep end over the wrong sports […]

Dick Cheney Is Right….

…. Yeah, for a change. Maybe for the first time. He called Barack Obama a one-term president and I think he’s going to be proven right. The Economist Magazine is calling him a failure in its latest issue though they certain feel he can change this still. If there were an election today with Obama […]

Facebook Privacy, Cooking Cats, and We Are The World 2010

In an unusual move one of the largest Seti@Home crunchers in the world has offered himself up for auction. He’s #21 in the world. Steve from our team bid $200 to lure him to our team and I threw in another $50 — donations go to the Seti@Home coffers. The thread is here. This paragraph […]

In life there are winners and….

I’m not sure how I feel about the name of the site, but this post is pretty awesome #99 Grammar. Bottom line is pretty much every group has grammatical morons. Judging from the comments on the Led Zeppelin post, stoned people have a far more difficult time grasping grammar. Even highfalutin executives can’t handle basic grammar. […]

Ikea Airlines, Sarah Palin, and Joe The Plumber Comes Out

Before I start my actual entry, this was sent to me be a few people and deserves to be here. First credit to Paul. A much larger version of the image without the added text is here. [This picture is no longer available] Yeah, that kid would be me. It’s the sort of thing I’d […]

Eleventh Grade Burns: The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod (Book IV)

A bit about foreign policies before my regular post. I read The Economist magazine (along with Time, Newsweek, Aviation Week, Rolling Stone, and Entertainment Weekly among others) because I like to read and to be informed about various topics. This one just intrigued me. In India a local non-governmental organisation has invented a new sort […]

Things Of Randomness

My guest bathroom now has new fixtures: nice, brushed pewter things to replace the ugliness that was there before. My downstairs bathroom also has a new fixture to replace the ugliness that was there before. I’ve also got a new flapper in the downstairs commode to replace the wonky one. I am pleased with the […]
