Internet Bar Idea

Remember when Internet Cafes were in? Well back when they were popular I had an idea for an Internet Bar that would have a futuristic outer-space theme. It was going to be called "Space Bar."

I never really thought much about it besides for the name but now that I think about it, I think it would be kind of cool. First of all, when you enter, you would have the option of going into two different music rooms. One would have a keyboard player and the other would be playing alt-rock. Of course, you wouldn't be forced into staying in one room the whole time. You'd be in control and at any moment you could easily shift into the other room and return back when you wanted to. But again, the function of the bar would really be to use the internet. In fact, if you ended up using it a lot, it would make sense to just put it on someone else's tab. And at the end of the night, when the volumes decreases and you're feeling down, you could escape out the back and go home.

Please don't make me delete this.

What Do You Do?

I was just on the phone and we got to the point in the conversation where it was time to say goodbye and hang up. You know, when you say the stretched out "alright" or "ok" while exhaling at the same time. Anyway, right before we were about to say "goodbye" the call was dropped. Was I supposed to call back just to say bye? If I decided to call back, would I start the phone call with "hi?" ["Hey! I'm just calling to say bye."]

For the record, I didn't call back. But he did.


Please

I just received a contract renewal from my landlord with a post-it note attached that reads: "Please sing and return." He didn't even write which tune.

No Thank You

I know I haven't been posting very frequently lately. I've been away and my laptop was being fixed. Update: It's fixed.

But while I've been gone I've had a lot of time to think. One of the greatest grammatical mistakes people make is when they say the phrase, "No thank you" or "No thanks."

Almost everyone forgets that there is a comma after the "No." What you mean to say when you turn down another piece of over-cooked, under-flavored chicken is "No, (but) thank you." Without the comma you are essentially saying, "No (I don't) thank you."

This becomes even more awful when you say, "No thanks, but thank you." Pleeasseee!

I have a feeling someone will object to this claim so let me just say, no thanks, I don't want to hear it.

Happy Birthday!

Text Messaging Idea

Here is an email I sent to David Pogue - the Tech Columnist at The New York Times:
Check it out on his blog here.

While we're on the topic of cell phones, how about a way to send a voicemail to another person without having to call them? How often do you want to tell them something that is too long for a text (or your fingers are tired) and don't care to hear that "nothing" is up and that they are "good." - ?

Also, are there still people who don't know how to leave a voicemail that we need that lady to be giving instructions? Has anyone ever even "paged" the person they were calling? What does that even do - send out a message over the PA system where you are and tell you to call your mother?!

Uch, I miss beepers. They were so much simpler...and pointless...and acceptable to wear on your belt.

Fresh Crop of Mother-In-Law Jokes

"Remember, it was one of the founders of modern Russia, Lenin, who, when asked what should be the maximum penalty for bigamy, replied: two mothers-in-law."

"My mother-in-law came by this morning. When I answered the door she asked, 'Can I stay here for a few days?'
'You certanily can,' I replied - and closed the door."

What's the difference between a mother-in-law and a vulture?
The vulture waits till you're dead before it eats your heart out.


All of these were taken from a book I'm reading, entitled: "Why Men Don't Have a Clue and Women Always Need More Shoes." You can find it here.

The Science of Ball To Groin

Science during its finest hour.

The Letter "W"


Whoever made the English alphabet clearly had an issue with the letter "W".
Every other letter is one syllable (A,B,C...) For some reason, "W" is not one syllable. It's not even two syllables. It's three syllables! 

Additionally, its whole identity is based on another letter - the letter "U". It's two "U"s (Double U). We don't call the letter "O" "Complete C" or the letter "F" "Almost E". Besides the fact, if anything, it should at least be called double V (look at the similarity: V, W).  

All I'm saying is that it can't be easy not having your own identity. Why couldn't they just have come up with a different name for the letter "W"? Why not pronounce it "We" as in, Tee, You, Vee, We. I guess it would have messed up the whole song.

The Morning After

So my friend woke up the other morning after going to sleep really late. He got out of bed and did his normal bathroom routine. As he was brushing his teeth, he noticed his mouth felt very, very minty and hot. He looked down and realized he was brushing his teeth with Icy/Hot.

The good news is that after washing his mouth out for twenty minutes, he's fine and his teeth are no longer sore.

In Another Life (Part 1)

I remember it like it was 14 years ago. Probably because it was 14 years ago. But that was back then, when I lived in a small town in Pennsylvania. Rileyville - that was the name. I was so young when it happened. It was the summer before I started driving. I was 11. 

Everyday that summer my friends and I would ride our bikes up to the bridge. Well, they rode their bikes. I rode my rollerblade. We could only afford one pair and my brother and I had to share it. But boy, was my left leg in great shape from all that pushing. 

When we got to the bridge we would jump off into the river below. It was only about 50 feet. But I'll never forget that summer when my friend Tommy and I were hanging out on the bridge and he jumped off. If only he had remembered that there was a drought that summer and there was no water down below. 

But Tommy was blind. 

As I sit writing this, I find that time has played with my memory. Like, for instance, Tommy wasn't my friend. He was my enemy. But I guess we sometimes mix up our friends and enemies. Oh, and also, we weren't hanging out. We were fighting. But you know kids, fighting, playing, it's all the same. And I just remembered, he hadn't jumped. I pushed him. But come on, I did him a favor. He was blind after all, what good would living have been? So you see, I did the right thing after all.

One last point. He wasn't blind. He was blind-folded.

But still, the lesson remains the same: watch out.

The Solution To The "k" Text Message Epidemic


Ever feel your phone vibrate in your pocket and get excited because you've just received a text message or disappointed because you know what it's going to say?
You struggle to get it out of your pocket and when you finally open it, all it says is, "k" or "ok."

It's annoying, I know, which is exactly why I came up with a solution. Here it goes: When you write a text message that doesn't really need a response from the person you are sending it to, end the text message off with "NRN." This stands for No Response Necessary.

Watch how it works:

THE OLD WAY:
A: Alright, see you later
B: k

or

A: Thanks!
B: ok


THE NEW WAY:
A: Alright, see you later. NRN

or

A: Thanks! NRN

(Notice how there is no B: --- If you are thinking, "but how will the other person know what NRN means?" here's the answer: They won't. Well not the first time. But when they ask, which they will, simply reply, "No Response Necessary. NRN")

-----------------------------------------

Writing NRN is essentially a courtesy to the other person that says, "it's ok for you not to respond."

Let me know what you think in the comments below. NRN

BigDog's legs are articulated like an animal's, and have compliant elements that absorb shock and recycle energy from one step to the next. BigDog is the size of a large dog or small mule, measuring 1 meter long, 0.7 meters tall and 75 kg weight.

Most unique is Y-Love's revival of Aramaic, the ancient language used to discuss Jewish Law. With each word he spits in the tongue of the Talmud, Y-Love breathes new life into Hasidism, and hip-hop, one beat at a time.
