    Pushy Air Head

    Monday, July 7th, 2008

    So apparently my post photos are causing nausea symptoms to spiral out of control throughout the North American continent. So I’ll try to keep this entry a slight bit more palatable. Slightly. So a few days ago my girlfriend’s car had tires that needed a bit of air. First of all, the fact that gas [...]

    The Oompa Loompa Look

    Sunday, June 8th, 2008

    Having recently graduated from college, I noticed a trend that was becoming very popular a few years back. This trend was the Oompa Loompa Tan. Stupid girls intent on looking a sexy bronze during a Maine winter, slather on the fake tan lotion to the point of turning themselves the color of an overripe Sunkist. [...]

    Freeway Driving 101

    Friday, June 6th, 2008

    Well, it’s time for my weekly rant (which is about how often I come up with something to rant about, unless something jumps at me right away). If my partner in crime wasn’t a slacker, we’d update more often. Anyways, this time I’m ranting about Freeway Driving. Freeway Driving is a very different beast then [...]

    Fandom

    Thursday, May 29th, 2008

    Well it’s time for my next opinion on nothing of any significance, especially since I’m apparently the only one pulling my weight around here. Anyways, this rant is about being a sports fan. Last night my team gave up a 9th inning lead to go on and lose the game in extra innings. Oh the [...]

    Umbrellas and the Rain

    Friday, May 23rd, 2008

    As all of our small set of readers know, I live in LA. In LA, you’re lucky if you get a hard rain once or twice a year. Because of this, I do not own an umbrella. The last time I owned an umbrella was when I lived in Atlanta, where you could get soaked [...]

    The Mattress Super Store

    Monday, May 19th, 2008

    So have you ever been listening to the radio or watching TV and a mattress store commercial comes on? It’s always a cheesy add pushing “The Lowest Prices, Guaranteed”. But have you ever thought to yourself, does mattress advertising really work? I mean, how often are we really buying mattresses? I’ve bought two mattresses in [...]

    Public Transport-a-Potty

    Friday, May 16th, 2008

    As I’ve mentioned before, I take the train to work right now. One of the worst parts of my day involves the thick acrid stench that is always present on the train, wafting in green squiggly waves from the grimy closet they call a bathroom. I think the most unfortunate part of it is that [...]

    Highway Driving 101

    Sunday, May 11th, 2008

    So I went home this weekend for several reasons, including friends, mother’s day and to visit my dad after his surgery. This meant that I spent 5 hours driving up and 5 hours driving back. You’d think after doing this drive enough times I’d be used to crappy drivers, but alas I’m not. So here [...]

    Gold Digger

    Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

    What’s the point of mining for nose gold if you can’t share it with the townspeople? – Family Guy I suppose that was the reasoning of a fine chap I recently had the pleasure of noticing on the train yesterday. A mid-fifties professional middle management dude with a spare tire around his waist and a [...]

    Seriously?

    Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

    So, yesterday I attended a seminar on type systems. Knowing what a type system is, is of no importance for this rant. Anyways, while there, I discovered there is a proof system called Coq (pronounced as you might expect). Now, this is where I realized just how immature I can be. During this seminar, I [...]
