You Have A Bad Airline Pilot When...

- You overhear him say on the intercom, "Hey, Pedro, What's this gizmo do?"

- For the past two hours, you've been going straight up.

- He says, "We're cruising at an altitude of 45 feet."

- Announces on the intercom that "We're now passing over the Grand Canyon or the Panama Canal."

- Co-pilot is sitting on his lap.

- When you take off he yells, "Weeeeeeeeee!"

- He's wearing a Domino's Pizza uniform  11:15:44 PM  permalink   Add a comment

A picture named freddies.jpgA few years ago, in an essay entitled 'Pantless', I wrote about the most beautiful Sears store in the world. It stands, bathed in soft tropical light, underneath the slopes of the lush Io valley in Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii.

It was a great store, but I'm not lucky enough to live in the islands, so for now I'll have to make do with the most picturesque Fred Meyer store I've ever seen.  10:50:53 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Why Do Porn Actors Have To Use Such Foul Language?. Like many people, I enjoy pornographic movies. But I've got a major bone to pick with the actors. It's gotten to the point where you can't watch a porno without being inundated by swearing. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to enjoy a hardcore... [The Onion]

It's satire, people :)  8:19:21 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

I bought one of those programs that lets you remodel your home digitally. My basic plans:

1) Combine the two upstairs bedrooms into one master suite. I'm thinking bedroom, sitting room/library, walk in closet.

2) Make the upstairs bathroom big enough to turn around in without bumping into the wall and the toilet. Copnnect it to the new master suite.

3) Raise the ceilings in my living room. Maybe the kitchen too.

4) Build a deck, either in front of my house or on top of the garage.

5) If everything looks groovy when I'm done, consider making those same changes to my 'analog' house.  7:44:35 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
