The Experience of our Species – Part I

No comments:

Ever marvel at the things we humans can do, or the crazy inventions we come up with? Well, I do, and I feel like sharing that wonder with you.

Attention Shoppers!

5 comments:

Today while grocery shopping, I had to deal with a particular kind of ‘shopper’ – not the kind that we usually run across and can avoid or get away from quickly. Today was a doozy, and has prompted me to vent here, as opposed to punching someone in the face over it.

When was the last time you thought it was ok to assault a cop?

No comments:
If you said ‘never’, then apparently you’re misinformed. However, if you think this is something to do on a daily basis, then welcome to Seattle, WA! If you haven’t heard the story yet, I’ll link you to it. There’s been so much buzz about it, it’s already getting hard to find some of the original stories that broke on it, so if you follow any news, you should have heard something about it by now. Again, if you haven’t heard, and if you also don’t like to follow links, I’ll summarize, hopefully neutrally before I tell you what I think.

Blogging and Little-Known Music

5 comments:

When I get bored, I do a little bit of blogging research. You know, how to get hits, how to make it look pretty, and other general information. According to the intarweb, you’re supposed to share an re-link other blogs that interest you, especially if the other blog is in your niche. Well, I really have no idea what niche this blog fits into.

Political Advertising

1 comment:

John McCain, senator of Arizona for well over 20 years, the guy who lost the last presidential election, whether you like him or not, is running for reelection in 2010. I don’t know for sure, of course, but if I had to guess, I’d say he’ll still be here another 4 years. Partly because it’s still a little early for me, I haven’t done a ton of research about who I’m going to vote for personally. At this point, I know of only two candidates – maybe? There’s the incumbent, and then there’s this other guy, J.D. Hayworth.

Seriously, is anybody really fooled by this?

Have you heard about “Blueprint”, the new credit card service from Chase Bank? Well, let me tell you, it’s the most fantastic thing that’s ever happened to the credit card business and to customers! With this new service, which Chase hopes will encourage many more consumers to sign up with them, you can now pay off your card in so many ways, you’ll never look at credit cards the same way! But, then again, maybe you will? See, some of the new features are so exciting and avant garde, you may not realize they’re anything new at all!

More Red Light Info

No comments:

Following up on my initial tirade (which if you haven’t read, I suggest you do to avoid confusion) about the red-light camera ticket, I now have more information to provide. I did some research, and it appears I may have been somewhat misinformed about some parts of the situation, but given what I found, I’m surely not the only one. First off, I’ll make some clarifications. The ‘red’ line from the first post should be indentified as the ‘prolongation of curb’. This is the imaginary line from one side of the intersection to the other, as indicated by the end of the curb. However, for red light camera intersections in Tucson, this line does serve a purpose: This is the legal stopping line for the intersection. There’s a problem with that, which I will describe in a moment.

(Prepare yourself, this one’s a long one!)
