When I was a kid I loved challenging myself with the Marilyn vos Savant columns. They often ran 2/3 of a page or more and contained some challenging questions. The Marilyn vos Savant of 2010 (and now 2011) appears to cater to… well, morons or something, because I haven't read a column in months - [...]
I'm of a scientific mind, and I've never seen a good study that says vaccines cause autism. I've seen countless studies that say they do not, so I'm inclined to believe that vaccines do not cause autism. But those who say autism is caused by vaccines say that big pharmaceutical companies are behind it all, [...]
For awhile now I've known that Costco carries Mexican Coke. There's no Costco in Erie - just a Sam's Club. Well just about a week ago, I discovered that Sam's Club is now carrying Mexican Coke. I'm not sure if it's a limited-time thing or what, but I bought a case and enjoyed a bottle [...]
Wikipedia's List of Common MIsconceptions is a good read for everyone. I know most of them, and some are "common sense" if you have a little knowledge and time to think about the concept (like the idea of a black hole having no more sucking power than the star that was there before it - [...]
Seriously? A special edition car made after a video game, complete with hood decals and whatnot? I could see wanting one (or being given one) if you wrote the game or were somehow involved in its creation, but who on earth would want to buy a car because they like a video game? Please don't [...]
The problem with having Christmas a day early is that on Christmas day, you've got nothing to do. You can't go out to eat, you can't shop, you can't call people and chat because they're celebrating their Christmas… No worries, though - I'm going to start in on my Vince Flynn book Term Limits.
I think I'm having a brain fart of some kind. Have a look at this page: http://nslog.com/_space.html (which may not exist after I solve the problem) and maybe you'll see what I'm apparently too mentally gassy to get: what can I do to make the "Signature" align with the bottom of the blue frame it's [...]
So many things wrong here, not the least of which is the sign, of course. This woman apparently doesn't know that people only hold up cut-outs of the letter "D" and a picture of a "fence" because "D""fence" is a homophone of "defense." Or maybe she really does need someone to de-fence her yard. Or [...]
Top models - leather, navigation, Bluetooth, etc. for both - is what it's come down to for Carey. Sorento Plusses --------------- - keyless entry/ignition - V6 engine - third row of seats - included roof rack - Sportmatic shifting - panoramic sunroof - longer warranty CR-V Plusses ------------ - less expensive (~$1600) - voice-activated commands [...]
Today's a car research day for me. I'm plotting charts showing the business hours that car dealers are open today and tomorrow. I'm writing down reviews and safety ratings. I'm printing PDFs of invoice cost charts. It's Carey's decision in the end and as I said, she can't go wrong with any of the four [...]
As Carey is in need of a new car, we spent a little time today driving around to visit some local car dealers to sit in some cars (no test drives yet!!!) after we revisited D'Amico to retrieve our forgotten garage door opener. At the Kia dealership we looked at the Sorento. We'd later add [...]
Following yesterday's crash, Carey spoke with our insurance company and the police and several other people. After one false start, we located our car at D'Amico. This image says a lot, I think, about not only the damage the car sustained but also how fortunate we are that Carey seems to be major-injury free: We [...]
I spoke to Carey as she was leaving school today, and then she called again at about 3:26, crying and sobbing and screaming. I couldn't understand most of what she said, but I did hear "Nat" and "bus" and "hit me" and "my car" and perhaps "obliterated." I called back in a few minutes and [...]
Interesting, no? I don't really care about basketball, but I do think the LeBron James thing showed what a joke ESPN has become.
