Brooklyn Bridge Protest - Similar to Egypt?

tcr! · Oct 2, 2011 at 6:29 am

More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

The arrests took place when a large group of marchers, participating in a second week of protests by the Occupy Wall Street movement, broke off from others on the bridge’s pedestrian walkway and headed across the Brooklyn-bound lanes.

Occupy Wall Street has a live stream of goodness.

One Two Three Kings

One Two Three Kings
What strange friends the starlight brings

One Two Three Kings
So many mangers to bless
So many psalms to sing

One Two Three Kings
Myriad expeditions
To brave
And arrange
As the pendulum swings
Through time
Through dreams
And time
And
Time again

Kindle Fire Sans 3G

tcr! · Sep 28, 2011 at 8:26 pm

The new Kindle Fire looks way cool, got everything you’d want in a 7” tablet with a not too shabby UI.

But WiFi only? The webpage lists 9 references to the word “cloud.” How much of that data up in AWS is going to be accessible when you don’t have a WiFi signal?

Amazon Silk, now that’s revolution in the browser wars – not hiding the http:// bits in the address bar.

Glued Meat Down Under

scene missing

Just ignore the 15 second intro commercial.

I don’t know why they call this stuff hamburger helper. It does just fine by itself, huh? I like it better than tuna helper myself, don’t you, Clark?

Little Screech Owl

While out on our Autumn Fair adventure today, we saw this little fellar:

gray screech owl

He’s a full-grown male screech owl, perfectly camouflaged when perched in a tree.

Never Trust the Man, or Facebook

tcr! · Sep 24, 2011 at 8:58 am

Facebook - About the Money

I was once a Facebook fool

I never really talked about what happened to Audio; however, in seeing that so many businesses and people seem hell-bent on integrating ever-further with Facebook, I figured I’d provide a cautionary tale.

If you are entrusting your life data to Facebook, or if you are depending on Facebook and its platform for your livelihood, beware. In the real Facebook world, there is no trust, and there is no friendship — there is only money and power. Think really hard — really, think — before trusting Facebook or its employees with anything.

More from Numair Faraz:

Life is pretty awesome when you live it outside. Get off Facebook, get rid of your TV, and go be interesting. Don’t try to capture your interesting moments in a zillion contrived photos; don’t try to hold on to the people you meet through some ridiculous virtual stamp collection; don’t broadcast a message to your friends to brag about what just happened. Live your life as though it is the world’s best-kept secret, as though you are living in an amazing TV show with an audience of one. Don’t run a virtual background check on new people; appreciate them as mysterious new characters that add new twists to the story of your life. Take a chance on reality.

The above is geeky-nerd stuff but others will delight.

Method for Making a Sandwich - Patented!

tcr! · Sep 23, 2011 at 11:40 am

“Method for making a sandwich” Patent

A method for inserting one foodstuff, such as sandwich fixings, into a second foodstuff, such as a bread bun, which includes forming a cavity in the second foodstuff.

Looks like a Twinkie filler to me. However, I do like the use of the word “foodstuff” three times in that sentence.
