So says this article as linked to by Jason Kottke: There may also be a medical reason for the decline in crime. For decades, doctors have known that children with lots of lead in their blood are much more likely to be aggressive, violent and delinquent. In 1974, the Environmental Protection Agency required oil companies […]

The movie "Wanted" with Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman is a fun little movie I've seen a few times now… Is it safe to call it a "kung fu movie, western style"? Both "Wanted" and kung fu movies have lots of (highly unrealistic) fighting and seem to be based on fairly simple motives ((Then again, […]

Cripsy Fries

From a Brown Derby (in Columbus, OH) menu. D'oh!

Make No Little Plans

Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency. […]

iPhone 5 Due Date?

Carey and I are both eligible for an upgrade (she has a 3G, I have a 3GS) in early July and August of this year. We'd like to upgrade. Thing is, we don't want to upgrade if the iPhone 5 is coming out by the end of the year. If it's a 2012 product, that's […]

The Wolves Within

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and […]

50 State Stereotypes (in 2 minutes)

Uh, the phone number seems to be missing some numbers. On purpose, perhaps?

Scallops in Erie, PA

I'd like to start making scallops at home. Where should I buy them in little ol' Erie, PA? Also, any great recipes for cajun style scallops? Broiled ones are here with a lot of other recipes here… but none say "blackened" or "cajun" in the title.

Casey Martin, 10 Years Out

FWIW, though I understood the PGA Tour's position, the ADA requires individual assessments and there's no way Casey Martin would have been deemed to have an "advantage" by using a cart.

A quick list. Add your own, please, in the comments. Inconsolata/Consolas Anonymous/Anonymous Pro Menlo Monaco ProFont (and variations) Vera Sans Mono What would you add? What do you prefer?

As a quick follow-up to yesterday's post, current plans are: "Plan B" (Highly likely this is actually Plan A): Subclass NSSlider to add a second slider. (Alternative: create our own view rather than subclassing - not sure how difficult this is…) The sliders shouldn't be able to overlap. That'll enforce a "minimum" length, which is […]

I've got what you could consider a movie view in a window that looks like this: What I'd like to add are some trimming controls, ideally something similar to the ones used in QuickTime Player: Are there any open source, free, or even paid libraries that contain this type of UI, or is Apple keeping […]
