I wasn't expecting this. Check out this article.

Robert Downey Jr. huh? Well, he's a pretty good actor. He's flawed like Stark. I'm intrigued.

Absolutely Right.

Give this article a read.

Here in Tuscaloosa, there are almost no sidewalks in subdivisions. The places where you see the most people outside are along the river walk (where there is a path), the sidewalk around the Quad, and the Quad itself (big open field where people play football and frisbee). I definitely agree that if sidewalks were built in this city, people would use them. You can tell by the number of people crowding these areas in near desperation.

If they built bike paths, this town would go though a major change. I definitely think that a significant percentage of the population would use them. I think people are afraid to ride in traffic in this town, so the people that do ride are on the intermittent sidewalks, dodging pedestrians. If bike paths were built, this town could reduce it's traffic problem, the University could reduce it's parking problem, and people would be in better shape while saving money on gas. The town is not that big, after all. It's just poorly planned.

One of my best friends had his birthday yesterday. We graduated high school together and he's the first one of the gang to hit 30. It sucks that his birthday will forever be "the day after 9/11." My birthday is is on "the day that will live in infamy," but that happened a generation ago, so I guess it's not such a big deal anymore. Things seem to be going pretty good for him. He's married to a great gal, he has a ham of a dog, he's got a nice little house, and he's about to start his MBA program.

30. I remember when I turned 24 and thinking THAT was old. *sigh* What can you do?

In Memoriam.

I took these pictures when Becky and I were in New York in May of 2005.

Just In Case You Missed It.

That is my favorite Star Wars Kid video. I love the added laser blasts and the sparks that fly when he stumbles into the wall.

Still More Old New Orleans Pictures.

I had to put these pictures on here because I thought they were pretty funny. The pictures are of us at Mardi Gras. From left to right in the first picture are Angel, Mike, Becky, Megan, Me, and Zac. In the first picture we are excited about going to our first parade. In the second picture we are sad that the parade was cancelled for the afternoon. The second picture looks like an album cover.

Ok, now have another look at the pictures. Notice that Zac seems to have the exact opposite reactions as everyone else from picture to picture. That's pretty funny.

Well, the reason Zac looks pissed in the first picture is because some water or something leaked all over the inside of his backpack. I don't know why he's so happy in the second picture though.

There you have it.

I just read this article from Reuters about an ice core sample that was taken in the
Antarctic. Here's the gist of it:
It is from air bubbles that we know for sure that carbon dioxide has increased by about 35 percent in the last 200 years. Before the last 200 years, which man has been influencing, it was pretty steady. ...carbon dioxide today is not just out of the range of what happened in the last 650,000 years but already up 100 percent out of the range. The ice core record showed it used to take about 1,000 years for a CO2 increase of 30ppmv. It has risen by that much in the last 17 years alone.

If that's a natural occurrence, that's quite a coincidence. Even if it is natural, it still means that people need to decrease the amount of CO2 they put in the atmosphere. No matter where it comes from, too much CO2 is bad.

Primus Sucks.

This is why Les Claypool is still the man.

And this is why Primus will live in infamy.
