Knott’s Berry Farm

Friday we went to Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA. I hadn’t been there in ages and it’s no longer the quaint Western-themed minor amusement park I remember. It’s tons bigger and full of high-octane vomit-inducing rides. It also has really slow kiddie rides too, as demonstrated by Grandma (my Mom), Safa, and her […]

Reading about this online dating subscriber who is suing Yahoo’s service for allegedly posting fake profiles of women and sending him fake “new match” messages just to keep him subscribed, I couldn’t help but think of that episode of Seinfeld when Elaine reveals that all her orgasms with Jerry had been “fake, fake, fake”. Jerry […]

United Airlines Sucks

I was out of town for my Grandmother’s funeral on Friday-Saturday; went out on a Frontier Airlines flight (no problem there), but returned on United specifically because the return Frontier flight was too late (6:50PM, getting into Nashville around 10:30PM). But, ironically, the United flight, scheduled for a 3:35PM departure, didn’t leave Denver until 7:00PM. […]


Irresponsible

From our “leaders”: “Some of the most irresponsible comments have, of course, come from politicians who actually voted in favor of authorizing force against Saddam Hussein,” Cheney told the Frontiers of Freedom Institute, a conservative policy group. “I agree with the vice president,” Bush said Thursday in South Korea when asked about Cheney’s remarks. “I […]


Sagittal Crest

Maybe I’m part Eskimo. That would explain the pseudo-sagittal crest along the top of my head, something that is usually found only among Great Apes, but sometimes among Eskimos (maybe I’m a Great Ape). Whatever it is, it was the object of fascination tonight for a colleague of mine who had never seen such a […]
