Do you know …

… who this man is? Scroll down slowly, so you don’t get the second photo too soon.

I did not recognize him.

Is that car an import?

Dangerous Car

Why, yes, it’s a 2004 Molotov (click for larger).

Saw it yesterday at lunch.

Do you point and laugh, or just try to get away unobserved?

The person your mother warned you about (not necessarily work-safe).

This showed up on BoingBoing a little while ago, and it looks like useful information to keep around.

I’ll try to keep this in mind

I’ve driven in Atlanta before

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

I never drove there during rush hour, but I remember getting directions on the order of, “Well, you take Peachtree Avenue to Peachtree Street, then head north until you hit Peachtree Circle. Continue past that until you hit Peachtree Lane, then turn left onto Peachtree Way and it’s just on the left.”

Quick links

I’m going on vacation soon, and I’m under the gun at work and at home to get specific tasks done before I leave. Therefore, no discussion, just links:

This guy dances salsa better than I can. I’ve probably got it over him in quickstep, though.

Continuing education on the web

Nice crochet work.

What do those awards really mean? The user testimonials can be fun, though.

I expect the next version of DDR will have trapdoors and punji stakes, too.

How much of your DNA is alien
in origin? It’s probably easier for most of you to read (if not understand) here.

A simple, yet profound, truth

Now, this is just my opinion, but if your money-handling skills are so poor that you can’t even make a profit selling sex, then you have absolutely no business getting involved in more complicated financial areas.

People do this willingly?

I can’t think of what would make someone believe that this is a good idea. Then again, I’ve got no tattoos, no piercings, and not that many scars. However, even the though of being around someone who had this sort of thing done gets up there on my discomfort scale. I have to admit that bas-relief artwork is nothing I’ve ever thought of looking for in a girlfriend.

UPDATE: It has been suggested that I warn people more clearly that there are disturbing photographs, not for the squeamish, if you follow the above link. Consider yourself warned.

I’ve allowed some links of interest to accumulate for a few days, and I no longer remember where I found some of them. But here they are, shorn of context, but not bereft of meaning:

100 words every high school graduate should know. I know most of these, but there are a few I don’t, and there are several I know from context, but couldn’t provide with a complete and correct definition without help.

A cheat sheet of cheat sheets for computers: Our favorite cheat sheets.

An open-source grammar checker for OpenOffice.

The Rocky Mountain Swordplay Guild, a branch of the Chicago Swordplay Guild devoted mainly to:

the work of two 15th century masters: Fiore dei Liberi’s Fior di Battaglia (1409), and the De Arte Gladiatoria Dimicandi of Filipo Vadi (c.1482 – 87).

Next month, they’ll have weekend training in the Fechtkunst from a visiting instructor. Sounds like fun, I may need to join up. Too bad I’m going to be pretty busy at work for the near future. This one originally came from David J.
