Admit It, You Wished Your Family Did This

Friday, December 25th, 2009


We do this with several other couples. The first few years we traded $20 bills. Now we just go to dinner together sometime during the holidays and go dutch on the bill.

I wish my entire family would do it. Every year everyone gets lots of thoughtful, cute, and completely unneeded crap that ends up cluttering our homes or being discretely offloaded.

Does anyone else do this with anyone in their life?

A Room-Temperature Superconductor Walks Into a Bar…

I share this here because less than 1% of my non-interweb friends will get these jokes. Use them this holiday season on family when you feel that you aren’t getting enough blank stares.

Sometimes I wonder if I do things like this.

My wife tells me that I talk and do things in my sleep sometimes, especially when I’m not getting enough rest or I’m stressed out. On a few occassions last year I woke up to find that the shotgun I had leaned against the wall between my bed and the nightstand had been moved. Since then, I’ve always kept guns in the room, but just out of easy reach.

I also do things like turn on the lights in the room via the remote on my nightstand, or unplug my PDA and mash buttons on it. But at least I’m not likely to discharge a firearm in my sleep anymore.

Do you do stuff in your sleep?

This Was a Triumph

I’m making a note here: Huge success.


It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Americans need more healers on their World of Warcraft servers. Hey Obama, where’s the stimulus for priests and paladins?

Illustrative Slings Reveal Your Mistake

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

Gizmodo came across an interesting idea for slings:


Appears to be just a proof of concept for now.

I do not think this is what you think it is.

From Squeaky: Obama commemorative coins “from the U.S. Mint” (true!) are actually 50-cent coins with Obama stickers on them.

The video says that the buyers were fooled by a bait-and-switch scheme, and were sold a false impression and hidden costs. Sounds a bit like a metaphor for the election as a whole, doesn’t it?

Uncut! Oo-Oh!

What the Roomba is thinking at 0:30… OK, now that I got the bulk of them, how to get rid of the stragglers? Ah! Cabinet!

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

I would correct the Rule 3 violation, but if there’s anyone professional enough to keep his finger on the trigger (or to administer first aid, for that matter), it is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Suggestive Sell Items

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

I noticed this sign last week at my local Walgreen’s. I just had to get a picture.


The gentleman at the counter (who I am aware is native to the US and this part of the country) was confused when I asked to move the “Buck Choc” to take a picture of the sign. When I told him I thought it was humorous and wanted to take a picture to show my friends, he realized the error, or rather, what he thought was the error:

“Oh, riiiiight. It should be ‘If we fail to recommend our suggestive sell item…’”
