Pinch-hit Randoms


  • I have a wireless headset attached to my head, a cell phone in my pocket, and a wireless networking access point nearby. I try not to think too often about the number of radio waves bouncing through me at any one time.

  • When did corrugated aluminum siding on the side of houses become fashionable and how do I track down the person responsible to slap some sense into them?

  • If mom had mentioned I'd get unsolicited $10,000 checks in the mail, perhaps I would have become an MD.

  • This sure sounds nice, but we're hearing the follow through is just not there.

  • Does anyone else think Snapper needs a girlfriend to bring him out of his shell?

  • If you are stressed out so much on your job that you cannot focus, I highly recommend going to the local animal shelter and getting a cat - preferably an office cat. It is impossible to remain stressed with a purring cat on your lap.

  • Did you know your microwave oven, Wi-Fi network, and most cordless telephones use the same frequency of radio waves? The only difference is the wattage of the amplifier.

  • I am not sure whether this makes me sad or angry or both. I mean c'mon.

  • Smores cereal. No, really.

  • I haven't worked there in 15 years (summer college job), but I still worry about whether the paper mill in my hometown can stay in business and what I could do to help them out. Anyone need a good, direct source for fine papers?

  • 45% of the world's cargo ships do not comply with new global anti-terror rules, which means they cannot dock at their ports of call. Will this affect the US and global economies? If so, how fast and in what way?

  • To Minyan Brendon: At a 1999 Jackson Hole retreat for Federal Reserve staffers, Alan Greenspan declared management of stock market valuations a valid policy goal for the Federal Reserve. This went largely unnoticed.

  • Out of his shell, get it? Yuk, yuk, yuk.

  • I think now is an appropriate time to note it's quiet enough in biotech to hear a mouse peeing on cotton.

  • Why will someone who won't spend $1 on a lottery ticket because it is a waste of money spend $1000 on fireworks?

  • A little bit of charcoal, apple wood chips that have soaked in hot water for one hour, boneless chicken breasts, a covered barbecue, and 15 minutes. Mmmm.
