GEORGE W. BUSH RÉSUMÉ I was arrested in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 1976 for driving under the influence of alcohol. I pled guilty, paid a fine, and had my driver's license suspended for 30 days. My Texas driving record has been "lost" and is not available. MILITARY: I joined the Texas Air National Guard and went […]

He posts on a forum where other people such as person B also own companies or shoot photos/video post as well. $60,000 of person A's equipment was recently stolen, and in the investigation, a video made by person B […]
Heaven forbid the damn city of Lake Park give the address to their marina! Jeez! How the heck am I supposed to figure out how to get there (directions) when I've got no idea exactly where it is! I'm going to fish the grass flats of Lake Worth on Christmas morning. Let's hope Santa has […]
Two days before Christmas and most all of my holiday shopping is done. I completed my Secret Santa purchase today (not a secret anymore!) and dropped by work to say hi (and to pick up some fudge-like Bourbon Balls). I visited Electronics Boutique and grabbed a copy of RC Stunt Copter and the more-than-lame RC […]
Stupid Survivor Poll on cbs.com: Should Burton have taken Jon on the Reward? a) Aye, they're mates b) Nay, he should've buttered up the ladies c) It may have been his undoing Could someone explain to me how I'm supposed to choose between B and C?
I've made my decision re: Cocoa Dev Central, and I've decided to give the site to Scott Stevenson. He and I have known each other for about six years now, and we keep bumping into each other. We're active and somewhat public Mac users - it's bound to happen. Scott's a great guy with a […]
I've met Robert Wiener (and his mother), but I'd never seen the movie Live from Baghdad until today. It was on HBO and I was bored. Not a bad movie, and Helena Bonham-Carter doesn't look half bad either (though, truthfully, Michael Keaton is a bit better looking). I think the movie would have been far […]
In some random surfing today, I came across Bill Clinton's Bio on the whitehouse.gov site. It says: During the administration of William Jefferson Clinton, the U.S. enjoyed more peace and economic well being than at any time in its history. My question: do they allow the presidents to write their own bios?
I didn't say I killed my wife. I didn't say I killed my wife. I didn't say I killed my wife. I didn't say I killed my wife. I didn't say I killed my wife. I didn't say I killed my wife. I didn't say I killed my wife. Stolen from someone else but his […]
Nielsen Ratings called me. After asking how their call did not violate the DNC (they're not selling anything), I answered 30 minutes of questions. One of my answers included the phrases "because Tom Cruise is in it" (in reply to "What is your primary reason for not planning to see Samurai). Another was "Not every […]
CNN was playing in the car dealer's waiting room today (more on that later perhaps), and one of the stories was Washington, D.C.'s plan to give out condoms to the public to prevent or retard the spread of AIDS. Now I'm sorry, but that's gotta be one of the most bass ackwards types of programs […]
I watched Celebrity Poker on Bravo tonight (well, my TiVo got it for me). It's pretty good, and it showed me what little I know about poker. I think I've only ever seen five-card draw played, according to Eric. Texas Hold-Em and these other types of games seemed odd to me. I quickly picked up […]
I've already posted a QotD on hunting, so I won't be doing that again. Feel free to answer there if the image here stirs you to do so: Today's the first day of buck season (for rifle hunters, anyway) in PA, and my dad got a good sized 8-point buck fairly early in the morning. […]
I hope that Tiger Woods 2004 gets a bit more difficult. I've just finished winning my first tournament, and I'm now on my second. After a rather uneventful 16-under-par first-round performance, I entered the second round of the tournament. The critical stats for that round: 1 eagle 1 no-putt 2 two-putts 7 tap-ins 14 fairways […]
