Which Illuminati are you?

my roots are made of grass

Although I have been known to proclaim the heart-felt joys of Podcasts for some time now, I generally do not suggest any particular one (other than suggesting new ones for people already "in the know", on occasion).

I am now making an exception to that.

Brave Men Run, a podiobook by Matthew Wayne Selznick, is the best audiobook I believe I have ever listened to. And, since podiobooks are the best thing to happen to podcasts since XML, I think it's my favorite podcast of all time!

And I've only heard 3 episodes so far!

Basically, I would summarize the story as "it's like x-men...but with real people". It is a novel "of the sovereign era"... the "sovereigns" are basically the "mutants"...humans with extra, or enhanced, abilities. The story revolves around a high-school kid named Nate...and he really seems like a real high-school kid. The story is well written, I can relate to the characters well... I'm definitely enjoyin…

Countdown has been updated for a new, life-changing event!

here before you know it

if you'd care to check out the new addition to the sidebar (check http://jeremyvs.blogspot.com/ if reading this via RSS), you'll see the countdown to my demise wedding!

WOOOOP!

well THAT was a dissapointment...

Note to self. In fact, note to everyone anywhere in, near, or possibly visiting, New England.

DO. NOT. GO...

to the Boston ChowderFest...unless, and until, they figure out how to RUN ONE.

Reports indicate that the recent 'fest in Newport, RI, had over 30 restaurants on-site, showing off their chowder ( http://www.newportfestivals.com/Chowder_Cook_Off/ ).

How many did Boston have, you ask? Surely they have a large number, being a large city, central in New England, with tons of restaurants in the area, you say.

You would be wrong.

Very, very wrong.

The grand number, my friends, is not "over 30"...it's not "close to thirty".

Hell, it isn't even double-digits.

The number...is 3.

But wait! It gets BETTER! One of the three (the group that WON THE VOTE FOR BEST CHOWDER LAST YEAR!)...ran out of chowder. Less than half-way through the event.

All I have to say is: when the booth giving out free samples of baked beans is better than your main event... you are doing so…

Weapons of Math Instruction

At New York's Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to be a public school teacher was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule, and a calculator.

At a morning press conference, an official said he believes the man is a member of the notorious al-gebra movement. He is being charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-gebra is a fearsome cult,", he said. "They desire average solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute value. They use secret code names like "x" and "y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns", but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. "As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, there are 3 sides to every triangle," Ashcroft declared.
