Shanahan Stupid Too?

Apparently, Mike Shanahan ain't the brightest bulb in the box either: he met with Terrell Owens!

People is a Funny Word

Look at this word for awhile: PEOPLE Now tell me: does it look funny or what? Please, no replies of "what" are required. It'd show a serious lack of imagination. 😉

QotD: Genesis 1:1

Question: Within five seconds, can you cite Genesis 1:1? My Answer: I couldn't. It took me seven before I remembered how the bible kicked off its tale. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Gas Quality

Question: What kind of gas do you put in your car? My Answer: The Touareg gets the premium stuff. I don't doubt that it's barely better than the non-premium stuff, but it's peace of mind for an expensive (relatively) car. So pfffft. The Aztek gets 87 or the lower-grade stuff largely because it's what the […]

QotD: Reboot Daily

Question: Do you reboot daily? My Answer: Heck no. Like Michael, I experience some sluggishness at first, but it tends to wear off after about ten minutes of use. I should check some day to see if it's due to heavy paging, as I do run lots of tasks at night that aren't normal - […]

Comments Feed

I'm considering disabling the comments feed for this site. Does anyone use it? It'd mainly be to speed up rebuilds, so if even a few people use it it probably won't be worth the gains. Just let me know.

Not Too Cool for Pool School

As posted over at Billiards Drills .com, this weekend I'll be taking a class with Tom Simpson, a Master BCA (Billiards Congress of America) Instructor. He's one of ten in the world, making him pretty darn special. I've asked around, and his classes are apparently some of the best money can buy. So, I'm looking […]

QotD: Smart Folders

Question: Do you have any smart folders in your Finder? My Answer: Nope. None. I never have, in fact, except the one I created a week or two ago to see that they were actually just an XML file. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or […]

QotD: Last Watched Porn

Question: When was the last time you watched porn? My Answer: I honestly don't remember. I haven't ever watched any in my house, so, nearly a year or more ago! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Porn Rating System

Seriously, a porn rating system? Real smart Republican there, that Senator Ted Stevens is. Let's see, we have "B" for bestiality. Or is that "Butts"? "A" is like "Anal Penetration" or "Ass," and "L" would probably be Lesbian. Is "G" for "group" or "gay," then? I digress… During a committee hearing on the Child Online […]

Happy 22nd, Mac!

Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear Macintosh Happy birthday to you… …and maaaaaany mooooooooore! Today is the Mac's 22nd birthday. He's in prime "selective service years" right now, but he can drink, download porn, drive, smoke, and do anything else an adult can do except collect social security. Like last […]

Yo, Jimbo!

I downloaded and launched Yojimbo. I drug a URL from Safari to the "Bookmarks" section of the application. It utterly failed to recognize it. Then, after discovering that I had to drag it to the Library or the dock, I tried to encrypt it. It crashed. Then, after re-launching and successfully encrypting something, I was […]

ICQ Spam

I've been getting a lot of ICQ spam lately. And it's not even spam: it's a bunch of German asking "hello" and "how are you" and so forth. No links - just mindless German babble. Worse yet, Adium can't seem to block the spammers. WTF?

West Wing Done in May

Sad but true, according to Judi and the AP. At least now I can plan my budget for the complete series on DVD. I already have seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4 (I think). If Judi wants more Josh Malina, she should pick up the Sports Night DVDs. Inexpensive and very good and also from […]

Ben Roethlisberger is now 26-4 as a starter in the NFL. That's an 0.867 winning ratio. If Ben were a baseball team, he'd win 140 games per year. Basically, in a five-man rotation, the first four pitchers would win every game they started, and the fifth pitcher would win a few too! Calling Plummer "Jake […]
