"When you make a decison on desperateness, they usually fail. And you know what's synonymous with desperateness? Stupidness."
--Jerry Angelo, Chicago Bears GM, English major.

Parents Protest Schools Irradiated Meat Plan
"Irradiated" is the least of cafeteria food's problems. They should be more afraid of the gamma rays turning their children into the Hulk, or Spider-man, or the Thing, as Marvel Comics taught us growing up.

Froogle: when you're looking for something to buy online.

Stopped by Best Buy today, played a little Metroid Prime on one of the Nintendo Gamecube floor demos. 30 minutes later, decided not to get a Gamecube until after finishing graduate school.

A New Type of Weather Forecaster
Really, is it any worse than the local unreliables? Eat your heart out, Tom Skilling, the pig-guy doesn't care what the fricking dew point is.

People are complaining about the blog posts being too short. What, you don't have enough work to do?! I am getting a little worried about what to do for one of my NU references.

Gibson to the "Max" Again
For goodness' sake somebody come up with some new ideas! Todd Hertz, get that screenplay done, you'll make millions. Gold-encrusted koala suits, ya heard?

Finally got around to seeing Insomnia. Good flick, although you wonder why Robin Williams only plays insane guys now. Al Pacino plays the rumpled, disheveled detective well without overacting too much and Hilary Swank plays a woman, despite my unintentional flashbacks of her being a boy. Whatever. Rented Frailty for this week.

Woman Missing Eight Years Is Home for Christmas
One of the weirdest things I've heard in awhile. No I take it back, this is definitely the weirdest thing.

Start your morning routine with some Strong Bad email.

Song stuck in my head: Snoop Dogg, "From the Chuuch to the Palace"

Have you ever wondered why sport utility vehicle drivers seem like such jerks? Now there's research to support what we always knew. "Unlike any other vehicle before it, the SUV is the car of choice for the nation's most self-centered people; and the bigger the SUV, the more of a jerk its driver is likely to be."

Gadgets for God: The 12 Days of Kitschmas
What, no chocolate Popes?

If you were to teach high school, what would you teach? This is what I'm currently pondering. Yet another instance where my undergraduate degree screws me over, because you can't really teach "communications."

Elvish Name Generator
My Elvish name is Amrod Ancalime. Figures.
