Twelve of the biggest ripoffs that one can currently find in America.Twelve of the biggest ripoffs that one can currently find in America.

Others actually believe that it is essential to put premium gas in their car and that it will malfunction if you try to run it on anything less. For most drivers, nothing could be further from the truth. Just check your car’s owners manual.

Daily Grind: Efficient

Name: Vin (aka jimmy three-teeth)
How Vin feels today: Efficient @ 3:10:25 PM
What Vin really wants today: Give myself a round of applause for writing various scripts that condensed a boatload of work into a smaller buoy-sized amount of work.

Music Stuck in Head: The Entertainer / Billy Joel
Mostly because the synth effect in the intro and outro of the song. Reminds me of Saturday morning cartoons every time.

Stuff to do today:

  • Read up on all the happenings from CES over in Las Vegas
  • Watch the Microsoft Keynote
  • Boy, was that ever boring
  • Find something more entertaining
  • This YouTube video will suffice for now
  • Wow, it's even got Reversi

Want to know how much CO2 an online CNN article produces?Want to know how much CO2 an online CNN article produces?

...depending on how quickly you read, around 80, perhaps even 100 milligrams of C02 have been released. And in the several minutes it will take you to get to the end of this story, the number of milligrams of greenhouse gas emitted could be several thousand, if not more.

Vegas Photo Spread

Below are some quick snaps I managed to take on our recent trip out to Las Vegas. I really don't consider myself much of a photographer but I was happy with how most of the photos below came out. Most of these will probably end up in the photoblog at one point or another.


Outside Paris perspective.


Indoor sky.


Outside LOVE theater at The Mirage. Reminded me of The Matrix.


Entrance into LOVE theater at The Mirage. Trippy.


Bellagio Conservatory.
