Creepy Children for Obama!

The cult of personality surrounding this guy is just too creepy for words.

Honestly, who, besides the Germans in the 1930's, put this much faith and hope for the future in the hands of one person? And a politician to boot. No one is this important in the world. No one.

Prepare to shiver.

I found this HERE.

Further thoughts on this can be read HERE.

What Caused the "Biggest Financial Crisis Since the Great Depression"?

Well, lots of things... but THIS is a good place to start.

Someone should be in jail for this. I'd start with Barney Frank and go from there.

San Francisco: The Land of Cultural Diversity and Open-Mindedness

I'm SO glad I don't live in the Bay Area anymore. For all the geographical beauty of the area, the people there are, for the most part, the most close-minded, ignorant, and just generally messed-up group of people in the country.

See Exhibit #243,399

It just sort of makes me shake my head and wonder what's wrong with those people up there... honestly.

Back to the Future, Digital Music Edition

So HERE'S a plan that's destined to fail. Honestly, who's running the ship at the music industry? Do these people really think that CD sales are down because of the physical format of the CD? Really?

Here's a clue guys... it's all about the CONTENT!

So now they want to sell us a small chip which has been encoded with COMPRESSED music... compared to a CD, which may be bigger, but is in an uncompressed format. Anyone want to bet that the price of these chips won't be as cheap as they could be?

This is an idiotic idea and will go the way of minidisc and other dead formats. This format is DOA.

Alright... so it's been a while since I've posted to this blog. For that matter, it's been a while since I've posted to ANY blog. Time to make another attempt at firing it up again, if only for my own amusement.

Elizabeth and I got a pair of tickets to the USC/Ohio State game last weekend, and boy was that a great game! Final score: Good guys 35 - Bad Guys 3. And it wasn't even that close... see attached picture.

Anyhow, there will be a few more postings as I find interesting things to write to myself about.
