you guys have probably already seen these websites, but i present to you...
overheard in new york and it's slightly less humorous companion site, overheard in the office for your enjoyment.

i also proffer a small sampling...

Drunk guy: If you come in and dance with me, I'll buy you a drink.
Sober girl: No, thanks. There's a five dollar cover.
Drunk guy: If you come in and dance with me, I'll give you five dollars.
Sober girl: I don't dance.
Drunk guy: I think you're hot.
Sober girl: I'm sorry...Watch out. You're setting yourself on fire.
Drunk guy: I'm on fire for you, baby!

Kid #1: Paper beats rock. BAM! Your rock is blowed up!
Kid #2: "Bam" doesn't blow up, "bam" makes it spicy. Now I got a SPICY ROCK! You can't defeat that!

I am not smoking. I am trying not to leave the house/room unless I have to. If I leave, then I will go to the store and buy smokes. This is fun!
so i was on the bus today.

the bus driver had stopped and was starting up again.

this big old truck started to back up and the bus had to stop short.

"oh snap", yelped the bus driver.

to the amusement of the lady waiting to get off a the next stop.

who giggled b/c this big old bus driver said oh snap.

she kept reapeating it till she got off.

SORE THUMBS, a comic about that cyclops kitten, Cy.

I know, it's slightly disturbing. But alas, sometimes life just is.

So, I think this is going to be my new employer:


I will be an on-site technician for setting up these funky gadgets.

It is salaried, so if they don't have any place to send me, I get to sit at home and get paid to do nothing. They even allow me to keep all frequent flyer points and stuff that I acrue while staying at hotels and renting cars and stuff. Eh? What do you's people think?

When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth

So Todd, this is that awesome story by Cory Doctorow. I highly recommend listening to this podcast/story read by the author. Like I said before, all of Cory's work is the kind of sci-fi that seems all so plausible.

Please enjoy.

This mural is no longer
While driving up Broad St. to work today, I noticed that the mural featured above had some suspicious looking equipment poised to tear down the abandoned building it was painted on.
Here's a link to it's Mural Base entry: Tribute to Adoption
And lastly, here's a Flickr photoset with what it looks like today.

The hunt is open to everyone, so invite your family and friends to join in the fun. See you on the 28th and get ready for Groundhog Day (February 2nd)!

Sounds peachy. I think we're going to do it. It's kinda like geocaching.

What's next?
Google Sets
From their site:

Enter a few items from a set of things. (example) Next, press Large Set or Small Set
and we'll try to predict other items in the set.

It's cool to play with. I'm not sure if it has a practical use for me. Please
