The 49ers look like they’re getting worse, not better.

Man, the Raiders suck as bad as ever. Hey Allen & McKenzie, I’d start updating my resume if I was you.

I should free some sympathy for these people that got hoodwinked; but I really don’t. If you don’t believe in governments, litigation, consumer protection, or even just paying taxes, then you should have the right to be robbed.  

I just read this great article on the Jalopnik website about a Renault concept car. I’ve thought quite a bit about the design of the future car, and my version would’ve used more fiberglass parts instead of plastic, a transmission-free electric motor(s) attached to the rear wheel (to save weight and cost), and the entire roof, rear & side windows, A/C pillars made of polymer. But I love their design, especially since their the real engineers and production managers. Alas, unless Nissan uses the design, we’ll never see it here in America.  

I’ll have to check this place out the next time I’m in Manhattan.  Believe me, seeing any patch of green in Manhattan, outside of Central Park, is rare. Good job, Robert Hammond, et al.

I really need to get out here, Japanese Friendship Garden, more often. The garden and the gardeners do a good job - I’m very tranquil. If you’re in downtown San Jose, CA, check it out.  It a wonderful place.

Good article from Politico Magazine about the war in Afghanistan. I especially the line: (Afghanistan) “hurtling headlong into the 9th century.”

Love, Grandpa and Grandmaster Flash

A rather humorous article from Buzzfeed about how auto-tagging is outing Grandmaster Flash as a grandmother.  That must mean the Furious Five are her grandkids.   

…and more post from tumblr


I’m not really sure what happened, but now all my commercials on YouTube are in español. And I just don’t have the heart to tell them I only got a C in high school Spanish :-( 

Robert Downey Jr. as Car Man

Read an article on Jalopnik about the actor’s car collection. Nice bunch of wheels, Mr. Stark… er… I mean, Mr. Downey. It’s interesting what happens when you stay sober, isn’t it? I hope you keep it up and make some more films :-) 


Football giveth and football taketh away.

Happy that football is finally back!  Saddened that I’ve lost my Sunday afternoons for the next 4 months.  There ain’t no free lunch.

Only a few more hours and this week will finally be over. Alleluia!

Has anyone seen the timeline of the Pistorius verdict? It’s starts at 8:15am, ends for the day at 2pm, and reconvenes tomorrow. I don’t know if he’s guilty or not, but it seems rather cruel making this poor schmuck wait 24 hours to find out if he’s going to the slammers or not. Justices is not only blind in S. Africa but moves at a snail’s pace.

Cut it out, Ray!

Apparently, by this ad, all sexual harassment was started by Ray Milland. Stop ogling the girls at work, Ray. They don’t like it and you come out looking creepy.
