 Ok...so I've manipulated some things, messed up a few others...and now Small.to is participating in the Open Graph.

Changing the world

Other Stuff

I now have at least 900 stories queued up for writing.  And the kid's so autonomous, so much of the time, that I now have time to write them.

Still, for just over a year, I've been working on something significant at work.  When I say "significant", I'm not talking about to my career, although I hope that's true, too.

When I say "significant", I mean it'll likely affect all of your networked devices, if I'm successful, in a few years.  Significant to you.

Unfortunately, that leaves me with few brain cycles left, when I get home, to put meaningful content down, here.

Fab Five Freddy Said Everybody's High

There's a car in the office parking lot, with a license plate frame that says:

WARNING:  In case of rapture

(How) Would You Help?

Other Stuff

My son and I went to the local park to toss a Frisbee and attempt to make an Aerobie Orbiter come back.  By local, I mean Dublin, CA...specifically Shannon Park.  We were not in Berkeley.

And there was a crazy lady there, testifying, loudly, about cell phones, death rays, chocolate shakes, government-made meth, gray skin, police brutality, cell phones, blood relatives, cell phones, underground prisons, and death rays.  I think she lamented the increasingly impersonal methods of communication, and also government conspiracies.  And cell phones in "the New America".

Candidates for the Idiot Hammer

Other Stuff

Apparently, I'm not the only one who believes some people have earned a bit of, uh, social censure.

Someone else has started a blog, dedicated to "People who deserve it".  (If I were a fighter, instead of a lover, I, too, would have suggested a "punch in the face".)

-fix your Words

Other Stuff

An observation:  certain prefixes and suffixes automatically improve words.  Others ruin them.

 

So...  Add the following to the end of any word to make it cooler:

-head

-icious

-saurus

-nozzle

-knob

I'm a treasure

Other Stuff

For the second time in a few months, a teenage girl has made an unsolicited assertion that I look just like Nicolas Cage's assistant in National Treasure, Riley.

 

I don't really see it, other than the glasses and hair/eye color, but hey, I'll take it.

Next time anyone asks you if you are a god, you say "YES!"

Other Stuff

Supreme Master Television appears to have a whole lot of money and viewers.  It sure feels "religious cultish", to me, but I can't prove it.

 

I came across this at two places, as I recall: some terrific vegan Vietnamese restaurant in North Sacramento had their propaganda out.  And I think Golden Era (in S.F.) had some, too.
