"If everyone was as brilliant as you and I, we wouldn't be brilliant anymore." Of course, the trick to applying this attitude effectively is to simply smile and keep your thoughts to yourself.

I watched the Super Bowl at Dave's house, and a good time was had by all. I intentionally bet heavily in the pool on the Patriots, figuring that since I wanted the Giants to win (really, really dislike the Patriots), I'd be okay either way: I'd earn some cash or see the Pats lose. Kelly [...]
… right after I catch up on the stuff I missed last week.
Stephen Fry from WikiQuote: Swearing is a really important part of one's life. It would be impossible to imagine going through life without swearing and without enjoying swearing… There used to be mad, silly, prissy people who used to say swearing was a sign of a poor vocabulary - such utter nonsense. The people I [...]
This article does a good job of explaining things. I remember from Econ 101 in college that my professor said "the national debt isn't anything to worry about because governments don't have life expectancies." But Washington isn't just confused about the short run; it's also confused about the long run. For while debt can be [...]
Yawn. Wake me up when it's 2020.
Does anyone have any comments on Hot Yoga or Bikram Yoga? It's $10/session (for a ten-session pass) here at YogaErie. I hate heat but it might be an interesting experience.
"The truth, that many people never understand until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt." - Thomas Merton P.S.

I know, the K really doesn't do anything post-2009, but whatever. This year, another low-key Christmas. Still at our house, but once again, snacks instead of a "meal." Meatballs, crackers, cheese, veggies, some ice cream later at night. Nat got a Kinect, because despite her saying "no, I don't want one" I told Carey to [...]
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss
There is no god and that's the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion died out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would [...]
This video is meant to show something else. What it says to me is that there's quite likely tens, hundreds, or thousands of other forms of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, and that it's incredibly obnoxious of us to consider ourselves alone in the world. It also says to me that there's no possible [...]
"I have discovered, in twenty years of moving around the ball park, that the knowledge of the game is usually in inverse proportion to the price of the seats." - Bill Veeck, Chicago White Sox owner
