QotD: Pleasurable Sex

Question: If sex were not a pleasurable activity, by what percent do you think the world's population would be smaller?

My Answer: 50%. If sex weren't pleasurable, I think that a great many people wouldn't have sex except to have a family or to get more welfare money. "Accident" babies would be gone, teen pregnancy might very well vanish, and, well, as if I know! I'm saying 50% and sticking to it!

Baltimore 15, Pittsburgh 34

Given that I'm not home on Sundays, I've got to TiVo my Steelers all year and watch them in the evening. No sweat - I don't have to put up with commercials like the rest of you saps! :-)

Unfortunately, as the Steelers are an AFC team, I do have to put up with the morons named Ian Eagle and Solomon Wilcots. I grimace every time Ian's name is pronounced. It's not "Eee-an" but "Eye-an." The announcing in the NFL, particularly on CBS, is horrendous. Fox does the job admirably, and ABC's Monday Night Football team do a great job, but CBS just plain sucks. They're not knowledgeable about the game, they aren't funny, and they add nothing but noise. I've chosen to watch most NFL games on CBS in a certain mode on my surround sound receiver that minimizes the chatter and maximizes the hitting and crowd noise.

QotD: Super Bowl 2003

Question: Who will win the Super Bowl in 2004?

My Answer: Why, the Pittsburgh Steelers, of course! You heard it here first!

QotD: Pete Rose

Question: Should Pete Rose be in the Hall of Fame? Should Shoeless Joe Jackson?

My Answer: Yes. Yes. If you need an explanation, then I doubt that any explanation will make any sense to you. :-P

QotD: Porn

Question: How much porn do you own?

My Answer: Owning and watching are two different things. In college, porn was almost like currency - having it meant you could trade it for a CD you wanted to borrow - all sorts of things. As such, I've got about 3 DVDs worth of porn. Where those DVDs are is another matter - packed up somewhere I'm sure. Porn that's readily accessible? Just some naked shots of a girl I know from the Playboy site.

Price Protection and Secessions

I bought a Daiwa Capricorn 2500 on August 27. A few days ago, I noticed that they were on sale. I went back to Sports Authority, picked up a Shimano Stradic 6000. Normally $149, it was on sale for $112.49 - a savings of over $37. The Capricorn used to be $114.99, but was now $86.24 - again a savings of nearly $30. The previous day, I'd returned a $320 GPS because I found it for $260 online (not yet purchased - may not purchase).

With the refund and discounts on the two reels, I ended up spending $88 for a $149 reel. At one point, the clerk said "I think you only have five days for this…" I said "no, it's a law, I have thirty days." However, now I'm curious: it is a law, right? And if so (I'm fairly certain it's so), how many people know this? How many people know that if you buy something, and it goes on sale or otherwise drops in price within 30 days, that you can claim the difference? Or maybe it's not a law.

Protandric Hermaphrodites

Interesting:

An interesting fact: Snook are protandric hermaphrodites, meaning that many change sex from male to female at some point in their lives. This transition usually occurs between two and seven years of age or when they reach a fork length of 17-30 inches. For this reason, most very large fish are females.

That, and much more, can be learned at Snookangler.com.

Do You Suffer From a Small Penis?

Sometimes I utterly and completely fail to understand how anyone opens spam, let alone responds to them. They ask you questions like "do you suffer from a small penis?" or "are you having trouble pleasing your wife?" "Overweight? We can help!" "Need a date?" "In Financial Trouble?" "Want bigger breasts?"

WHO opens this crap? Seriously? Ugh.

QotD: Gay

Question: What percentage of your acquaintances are gay or bisexual?

My Answer: I think that about 5% may be gay, and I'm positive that about 7% are gay. So, I'll say about 10% of the people I know are gay. Of my "friends," a word I reserve for about ten people in my life, one is bisexual.

Xounds 2.0

I see that Xounds 2.0 is out. I was a big fan of the Interface sounds in Mac OS 9, and I used Xounds for awhile on X, but since removing all "haxies" I've got increased application stability and a tweak faster speed of operation. The only third-party stuff that shows up in my System Preferences is my PowerMate control panel, Synergy's control panel, and TinkerTool.

QotD: Software

Question: How many pieces of software do you buy per month, on average?

My Answer: I buy about three pieces of software per month, be they some $5 shareware or some $999 video editing software (at upgrade price, of course!).

Beer and Jet Engines

I don't care for beer much, but I bet that the jet-powered beer cooler could easily be adapted to suit my Coca-Cola cravings…

August 2003 Zeitgeist

Every month (since February) I post my site's referral search terms (not what people search for on my site). It's an interesting peek that illustrates "how people are finding me." Here's August's…

Fishin’ Key Largo

Monday night I got bad news: Jim was scheduled to work on Tuesday. That would have put our plans to go fishin' on hold for another week, and figuring the trip was cancelled, I stayed up way past my bed time to get some work done. I woke up at 7:30 (damn sunrise!) and puttered around the apartment. Jim called at 9 to say "we're goin' fishin' after all!" I got directions to Key Largo and quickly assembled everything I would need.

QotD: Neighborhood

Question: If you could change one thing about your city, town, or neighborhood, what would you change?

My Answer: I would make the average age of its residents 23. I would make them all female. I would make them all attractive and intelligent. I would make them all single and desperately in need of some geek love. These questions get easier every day!
