observations / comments:

- biggest observed contrast: what’s up with wyoming home prices?!
- need a salary heat map to round out the comparisons!
“You know what would be good on this burger? A ham sandwich! And instead of a bun let’s use two donuts. That way we can have it for breakfast. Look out McGriddle, here comes the donut ham hamburger!” – Jim Gaffigan
Error: Error occurred while rendering portlet – see provider log file for details
no link, no nothing but an obsecure-tech riddled message with zero indication of how to remedy the issue. WTF?!
…never a good msg to get upon resetting one’s password for the HR company that handles all my personal info.
on the plus side, it appears to have worked regardless… smooth as sandpaper!
…like what an overgrown-raised-truck-that-floors-it-between-red-traffic-lights says about the tiny package its driver has, you know, where it counts. that giggle you get knowing they’re over compensating for lacking any real virtue.
presenting the smart car monster truck:
is it a cell phone or a remote control? is it part lollipop too?
well, whatever it is, it is from ESPN labs. enjoy sports fans. read more ova here
p.s. this my remote, the logitech harmony 550, procured for $50:
one sentence review: it does what I want and while it occasionally fucks up a little, is overall a good thing.

this is the kind of overproduced trash that makes me cringe at the possibility of microsoft absorbing yahoo… (I can’t imagine yahoo allowing something as awful as this vid – not to mention Y!’s “ecosystem” is entirely contrary to microsoft’s) – it’s so bad… it’s not even funny.
first of all, wow… I can’t help but imagine how I would have handled such an experience. after going batshit crazy for a number of hours, I imagine a spiritual awakening (of sorts) and a heck of a lot of praying. I hope he was a bad man who deserved it, got his come-uppins or karma, and is changed for the better.
secondly, what the fuck?! how does this even happen today – what with a) emergency elevator-phones b) a SECURITY CAMERA; no one checks at all? c) cell phones – granted the guy was on a cig break, must not have had it on him… sheesh!

Subject: JUST TO INFORM YOU
Quite the phishing scheme; pray off people fear for their lives. the typos and garbled english are a nice touch, too. after checking out the source domain’s website, I’m inclinded to say their accounts have been compromised. that, or some user Cemmtru @ protocolmarketing.com is a hired killer!!!!
After a little searchin’ and found this, Police warn of e-mail death scam article that contains the very same content sent in my personal JUST TO INFORM YOU you’re gonna die unless you pay e-mail. Oh, what a relief! ;)

According to CIA public records of country government current account balances, the US is in some deep ass debt, falling behind a myriad of third world countries. Not that our debt is any mystery, seeing the a point-blank ranking of countries definitely drives the point – the Feds suck at managing our money. of course there is all sorts of controversy (scroll to bottom) surrounding the CIA itself… so who can say how accurate this ranking truly is.

ultra conversative Ron Paul to the rescue (ah, if only.)
I Wanna Be The Guy is the most macochistic 2d sidescrolley-platformery-adventure game I’ve ever seen or heard of. it doesn’t appeal to me really, but I’m still fairly impressed by people who are great at these things. respect.
like this guy, he has crazy mad platformer skill:
as seen from the vid, iwbtg is inspired by games of the NES era – heavily influenced by megaman and super mario bros. but covers many other games like metriod, legend of zelda and even tetris. so in a phrase, the game is chalk full of nostalgia packed sucker punches of frustratingly challenging proportions.
yipee! can’t wait for hawaii wheel-chairs. wtf?!?!
I’m tired, blurry eyed, yawning, yet the mind is relentlessly seeking “accomplishment.” my project TLH is nearly ready for public consumption. I’m uneasy, because I am having trouble squelching perfectionistic urges. everything must be in it’s place. all features. blah. is the taste window too small?!? shit, maybe I should redo it. man this time ago generating thing is annoying, I *know* I don’t have to write it by hand but I can’t seem to find a proven and modular solution. ok, that’s enough random jibbajabbah. nightnight.
