When the downtuned guitar first kicks in the 10 second mark of Y Control by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the hair on my arms stands up. This is one of those songs I could listen to over and over and over, much like the Megaman 2 medley covered by the Minibosses.

Too many puppies with guns in their hands.
Too many puppies in foreign lands.
Are dressed up sharp in suits of green and
Placed upon the war machine.
Too many puppies are just like me.
Too many puppies are afraid to see.
The visions of the past brought to life again,
Too many puppies, too many dead men.

- Primus, "Too Many Puppies"

Katherine bought a ton of food for an office and decided that she had too much. She was going to be in the Redmond area so she decided to come by and let me give it out at work. I decided, why not make a little experiment out of this... I present you a dissertation, Analysis of Dietary Inclination of Employees of a Multi-Billion Dollar Multi-National Corporation. Kat and I put out all of the snacks and then I decided to take pictures at basically random times until it was all gone.

The snacks in this study include chocolate chip cookies, frosted sugar cookies, Reece's cups, chocolate balls and yogurt-covered prezels. Here are the visual facts:

3:07 PM

3:32 PM

4:15 PM

4:48 PM

4:58 PM

6:14 PM

As you can see, the ranking of these five snacks is as follows:

  1. Chocolate chip cookies
  2. Frosted sugar cookies
  3. Reese's cups
  4. Chocolate balls
  5. Yogurt prezels
Another conclusion is that Microsofties like junk food. The end.

Ok, let's see if Blogger decides to eat this post as well! Anyway, I've been taking pictures with my phone for the past couple of months but I've only found a few gems.

Here is the dorkiest man I've ever seen. Yes, that is a man.

Ok, chrome wheel covers are fine, mostly because a lot of people have them. This takes the cake. Those are fake drilled rotors!

That man and those covers belong on the Lamers bus.

At the Evergreen Fair, Kat and I saw some interesting booths:
