Sons of Anarchy, Esq.

I just saw a promo of a new TV show about bikers/gangs called "Sons of Anarchy." In the ad, a bad-ass lookin' biker dude looks with disdain at the dork in the truck next to his bike at a stop light and says "we're all free men, protected by The Constitution."

Perhaps he doesn't understand the definition of the word "anarchy?" I'm pretty sure citing legal documents is the last thing an anarchist is supposed to do when arguing his political/ethical world views.

Out of Africa?

One of our tickets* is about cheek swabbing people to find out where their ancestors came from. This Wikipedia page is awesome: Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup.

Beauty everywhere

Last night playing Ghost Recon 2 my medic got stuck in a wall (bug) so I shot him in the head so he'd fall backwards, then patched him up. Problem solved.

This morning on my motorcycle I was following a large maple tree on a truck. At a stoplight I got the chance to hide in the foliage and touch the pretty leaves from the comfort of my bike. (Hard to sniff anything in the full face helmet though.)

Arrived at work and some gal is bitching that her stylist did her highlights wrong again.

Way too funny. And then me.

IRC can be crazy funny. I didn't know about that site until I got quoted in it (still pending moderation).

Fingers crossed!

Delicious ethnicity

I am deeply offended that Fu Newmanchu has replaced his totally awesome bottling (left) with the boring corporate pit of despair on the right. The dressing, which I've been buying for months, is far less tasty now.

DistractoBot 9000

As if sitting in 12 IRC channels wasn't enough I'm in Twitter now too. It's yet another ADD wet dream.

But why?

/me slaps himself as his off-the-clock lunch break stretches towards a half hour...

Somehow I'm getting exposed to a lot of iPhone rants today. Politically correct and incorrect alike.
