Poke it with a stick?

Monday, November 20th, 2006

“The public wants us to have mastered the problem of dealing with asteroids. So being able to have astronauts go out there and sort of poke one with a stick would be scientifically valuable as well as demonstrate human capabilities.” Article [guardian.co.uk]

Where Laptops Should not be Taken

Monday, November 13th, 2006

I’ve seen people driving and talking on their cell phone. I’ve seen people driving and typing on their blackberry. I’ve heard people in the restroom talking on their cell phone. I’ve seen guys typing on their blackberry in the restroom. But today I saw a guy standing in the rest room taking a piss and typing on his laptop with one hand while holding it with the other.

I can’t believe there is anything in the world so important that one needs to type on their laptop while taking a piss at a urinal.

Montana and Virginia

So once again we have an election and no final result… You’d think one of the most advanced countries in the world we could decide who won quickly. Part of me hopes that there will be calls for recounts using the electronic systems and that people will not be happy that they can’t really perform a recount on the paperless touch screens. Then maybe someone will finally do something about it and force the issue. If not then we may need the UN and the Carter Center to monitor the US elections like they monitor elections in places like Haiti and the Congo. At least the US does not have violent protests when people don’t agree with the outcome. Some would say that’s because Americans are mature voters, I think it’s just as likely that most Americans are apathetic voters.

I was born!

Now I can get married!

I have to have my birth certificate to get married in Singapore—Passport apparently is not good enough—I’ve been told that this is so they know what sex you where when you were born. But being as I’m in Singapore and my birth certificate was in the US it took me about 6 months to get my hands on it. In the mean time I used my hands to pull my hair out trying to figure our where it was. I thought I knew where it was but when I had my mom look she could not find it! She finally came across it last week in a pile of her stuff—not in mine! Good timing!
