Silenced by Girls

June 21, 2009

Right, so I haven’t dropped any thoughts recently. That’s mostly because my thoughts of late have concerned social relationships, and I’ve learned not to share those details with a global audience 🙂 Fear not! I have lots of opinions in other matters, including:

  • why don’t people support bike lanes, and how do I keep from biting their heads off
  • in the same vein, how Hamilton acts like a person with depression: we can’t imagine a better future because any change might make things worse.
  • whether the sale of AECL is a loss of national capacity, or a prudent business decision or both
  • some engineering toys I’m working on including mechanical computers and bicycle gearing. These are the limited means I have to contribute back to the world which is really awesome for me right now.
  • A new truce between evening me and morning me?
  • How Tort law seems like the medieval, pound-of-flesh taking cousin to cousin of common-law.
  • Absolutely nothing about Iran, since I have nothing salient to offer, but I am reading about it closely
  • A love song to surfing, which I recently learned how to do

Unfortunately I have dishes to do, so I will cop-out by linking in some various bits of awesomeness which made me love the world a bit more this weekend.

Obama’s role in the war between Nerds and Jocks, according to Hodgeman

Ze Franks awe inspiring efforts to breathe life into the web (and the wicked awesome results)

Lastly, a great NPR piece on how hard it is to blame the near-collapse of the financial system on anyone, even though it seems like someone deserves to be blamed

Best of the web: Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno

April 14, 2009

Don’t be afraid of the title. This is completely SFW, and is probably the best thing on the internet right now.

Don’t miss the Spider, Snail, Bee and Whale. I’m so in love with this woman.

In other news, I’m dating again, and have interesting thoughts on the subject, but I’m nervous about posting them to the never-deleted internet. Hopefully I’ll coalesce them into something timeless soon.
