Hot Yoga and Bikram Yoga

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.

There's a running trail beside the Bayfront Connector that may be a good, wide place to run. I've been doing a fair amount of running at Presque Isle, but the trail there is surprisingly narrow given how much use it gets. Still, at least it's a nature-heavy trail. The Bayfront Connector goes past, uh, warehouses, […]

Ordered an iPod Nano and TikTok

I held off on getting a Tik-Tok and an iPod Nano a few months ago because I didn't see the point of having a watch that wasn't on most of the time. And earlier today I ordered a green iPod Nano and a Tik-Tok (the less expensive one). Why? Because the 1 GB iPod Shuffle […]

What I Am

Do You Know Your Blood Type?

{democracy:88} I don't. My dad is O (+ or - I don't know) and my mom believes she's A-. So I may be O or A. I'll go to the Community Blood Bank soon and donate blood. Why do I care? Because I'd like to put my blood type on my 1BandID, that's why! 🙂


I've transferred my domains from GoDaddy to the registrar I used the guide from Jeff Epstein and thus probably gave him a buck or two in referral fees. I saved about $1.90 per domain by using the coupon code SOPAsucks, as mentioned on the NameCheap Coupons site. The one step that's not listed in […]

1BandID vs. Road ID

As I've mentioned here on the blog, I look forward to the day I can leave my iPhone in my car or at my house when I go running. And though I'm reasonably healthy, far too many "reasonably healthy" people are hit by cars or suffer some sort of other medical emergency. It's not common, […]

Fear and Suffering

"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. Yeah, I know, great post for Christmas, eh? […]

Merry Christmas 2K11

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 […]

Western States 100

Yeah, some people run 100 miles in a row. And there are some people out there who run farther than that. Not really something I'm ever looking to do, and I think I look at people who run more than 26.2 miles with equal parts admiration, curiosity, and wondering just how insane they have to […]

The Verge, which many feel is the best tech site going these days, publishes an awesome article on Kickstarter. I've heard of every project mentioned except the two biking ones. If the iPod Nano had a way of always showing the clock (not requiring a touch), I'd have bought an iPod Nano and a TikTok […]

Those Who Matter

"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

Garmin Forerunner 610

I've managed to pick up a Garmin Forerunner 610 with Heart Rate Monitor and a Foot Pod. Oh, and I grabbed the cloth strap as well for $19 because I've heard a few horror stories about the pins in the normal plastic watch band falling out. I may just pick up some LocTite or something […]

Penn Jillette on Religion

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 […]
