"I was a messiah once, then I took a nail to the ankles and wrists."

Is that Nic Cage?

It is cage.

I'm gonna break my Jesus Cage pose, and run.

Some JERK jumped into the treadmill right next to mine at the gym today, and he was running loudly and playing his music on his phone. What the hell, there's like 20 of those machines, all empty!

I was like 15 minutes into my cardio session but my competition senses fired up and I decided I'd last longer than he did.

Bastard did like an 40 minutes at a high pace... but I did 10 more minutes than him u_u

I almost died after, and I have no idea why I felt I had to "beat him" but there it is. I don't know why I do that.

Testosterone, it's a hell of a drug.

You put way too much work into it. I'd have just waited until he went into the restroom and used the urinal right next to him, and outdone him there.

Protocols exist for a reason.

Dhelor, I think I might love you.

I would straight-up murder whoever gave me that tattoo.

Save on Foods will not let us buy more than two chickens in a single day. Therefore we wait. Outside.

o.0

Why are you limited to only 2 chickens? Is there some kind of weird Canadian chicken shortage?

I love how a couple of hops along the "suggested video" path lands you into some bizarre area of Youtube.

My sons have been playing the Lego Pirates of the Carribean demo for about a year now. Off and On. They've started using it in a way that I never really expected.

You could say that they're playing house with it. Or like playing action figures, which is essentially the same thing, but with gender typing. They're role playing with the dog and a couple of the other minifigs. They're ignoring all of the game objectives, and just doing the, "..pretend you just said this..." and "...then you go over there. Sit, good doggy."

It's jut become a playset of virtual "dolls". It's entirely disparate from Lego play too, since you don't really have any access to blocks, nor freedom to build.

Just struck me as interesting.

I can never be sure if these thoughts are non-sequitur, or questions I want answered.

Why does everything have to beep?
The microwave beeps for every number you type, and for opening the door. For opening the door? Just in case I forgot that was what I was doing?

Window beeps, or dings, or tweets for every window and warning that pops up; because the opaque box of text entirely obscuring what I'm trying to do wasn't obvious enough?

I've run into a couple of circumstances where it's necessary. Beep codes for motherboard failures. The other similar thing which has been addressed by LEDs is settings on an electronic speed controller for an RC car. LEDs replace beeps nicely.

So why isn't the default state, silent running?

Do people feel like they're getting more for their money, or like their computer is doing more work, if it beeps constantly?

*beep!*

Sure, it's unnecessary for you and I, young(ish) tech-savvy folk with good eyesight and an innate grokking of various and manifold interfaces. But for my Luddite 70 year old mother? She'd be bloody lost if the microwave didn't beep at her to let her know that she actually pushed a button.

Design for the lowest common denominator, innit.

I like beeps. Where would R2D2 be without beeps?

At least you don't live in a movie or TV show, where every single button press elicits an accompanying beep. Imagine your keyboard beeped every time you pressed a key. That's Star Trek: The Next Generation. (They should click, like iPhones! Dropped the ball there, Roddenberry.)

Actually, Roddenberry should have gone the next step, and instead of a beep or click, just used a light vibration that lets the user know the press took without annoying everyone else. At least thats how it works on my phone.
