The Age-Old Question...

A chicken and an egg are lying in bed. The chicken is leaning against the headboard smoking a cigarette, with a satisfied smile on its face. The egg, looking a bit pissed off, grabs the sheet, rolls over, and says, "Well, I guess we finally answered THAT question".

United States of Whateva!

I was bored and checked out this site that makes a map of all the states you've visited. I've only counted states that I actually have visited and not states that I have driven through. Don't think I'll get any new states done this year.. I'll be back in California over Thanksgiving... what place new should I go to next?

The Countdown Has Begun!

No Excuses! Tarver vs. Jones 3

Coverage starts Saturday 8pm on HBO PPV. After we get back from Iowa City, hopefully watching Iowa beat Illinois on homecoming, I will be staying in Cedar Falls to watch Jones-Tarver III. If you would like to watch this classic battle let me know, I could probably reserve you a spot for about $5.

In other news.. both FlandoMagic and Wounds have small posts about the shindig at my place on Friday night...

Took the day off. Golfed with Wounds, Dorf, & Andersflay. Teams were Wez & Wounds vs Dorf & Andersflay. Although I & Wounds won by like 6 strokes, somehow Dorf & Andersflay won 4 more skins. So we have to pay them a few bucks.

A few things I remember from the morning...

1. Listening to Dorf & Andersflay try to figure out how to split up and pay for a $16 six pack of beer. Took Wounds and me about 1 second to figure it out. He gave me a Ten, I gave him $2 back. I paid with a Twenty... seemed simple enough to me. 5mins later Dorf & Andersflay were still trying to figure it out.... they have some problems.

2. Wounds and I had a not so good tee shot on one hole. Trying to figure out what distance we had left, we looked around at a few sprinkler covers. We looked at 2 and both had nothing on them. Wounds says, "We are so far away they don't even put anything on them!"

3. Andersflay was telling Dorf about his driver. He says, "It retails for around $400. I got it off eBay for like $150. It was slightly used. Wez Says... "Yeah, just like his woman."

Here's a few pics from the round today...

Hazardous Work Conditions - Part II

Back in June I made a little post about the bad case of mold on the wall that runs right by my cube at work... Hazardous Work Conditions Well here's an update. When I came into work on Tuesday (I was in Madison for work on Monday) the entire wall was surrounded in a wall of plastic. Then today there are these men walking around in full hazard suit gear and gas masks and everything. Remember - this is all taking place like 8 feet from my desk. I am wearing no gas mask... This seem a bit weird to anyone? If you were at work.. and you saw guys in these suits and masks walking around.. but you were just sitting there working, would you think anything? I mean, we are breathing the same air - yet these guys think the air is so bad they have to wear all this gear.

Here are a few pics I took today with my phone. Check out the sweet pic I got through a hole in the plastic of the man in the hazard suit!!

This 1st pic is from my post back in June...

Headline News

I ran across this newspaper headline... it was just too funny not to post.

Thursday, September 08, 2005


I was up til 12:15am last night watching the greatest tennis player ever win one of the best matches ever to advance to the semi-finals of the US Open.

Andre Agassi won in 5 sets over James Blake (up and coming US tennis star). It was an amazing match and the 35 yr old Andre pulled it out. After he dropped the first 2 sets... I thought he was done. After he was down a break in the 3rd set... I thought he was done. Even after he came back and won the 3rd and 4th set, he got down a break in the 5th set. I thought he was done... When James Blake was serving for the match in the 5th set up 5-4... I thought he was done. Even after he came all the way back and forced a tie breaker in the 5th set, he got down 3-0 in the tiebreaker... I thought he was done.

But the Greatest Tennis Player to ever live, Andre Agassi, stepped up and roared back to win! He was the oldest player since 1991 to make a US Open quarter final, he is now the 5th oldest person ever to make a US Open semi final.

We Love You Andre!

Will You Be There?

In Our Darkest Hour
In My Deepest Despair
Will You Still Care?
Will You Be There?
In My Trials
And My Tribulations
Through Our Doubts
And Frustrations
In My Violence
In My Turbulence
Through My Fear
And My Confessions
In My Anguish And My Pain
Through My Joy And My Sorrow
In The Promise Of Another Tomorrow
I'll Never Let You Part
For You're Always In My Heart.

Computer Lifeguard?

Check this out... Over in Britain some of the pools have this new Computer Lifeguard system. It has cameras that watch underwater and alert the lifeguard when someone is drowning. Click on the link to the story... at the top of the story they have a link so you can watch the actual computer system camera recognizing the kid drowning.. and alerting the lifeguard the dives in to save the girl.

Says it costs 65,000 pounds to install. Not sure what the heck that translates in to dollars.. but sounds like a lot. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd do a Google search to figure it out.

Britain, The Times Online, Saved by a computer lifeguard

OK.... I just did the conversion.. it would be $116,246 US Dollars.
