Cop was killed for his gun, authorities say: This sort of sounds like a movie plot; Ex-marine, Gulf War veteran, stalks/hunts down police officers until he finds a vulnerable one, marine hops out of Camaro and applies a shotgun blast to the head of the cop, steals cop’s gun. What happens next?!

Well, my gallery is officially dead. I’m in the process of rebuilding it. Anyway…

Religion is just a meme in the minds of many. The mind is comprised of a collection of neurons with some capabiilty of memory and higher processing. The neurons are a physical entity that is controlled by chemicals and electrical pulses. Viruses can have an affect on chemicals and chemical processes. Why can’t someone just create a virus to destroy religion? Would it really be that hard? Please?

Found on Fark! retroCRUSH: The 50 Coolest Song Parts: I don’t agree with many of the selections (either that or it’s just hard to tell from the much-needed but low quality MP3 clips they give you) but over all this is a pretty cool list with some of my favorites. Favorites include anything by Queen, The Who and Heart.

Oh, BTW, my gallery is hosed. I’m not exactly sure when it happened or what happened, but it’s hosed. I tried to upload some pictures last night and my upload tool kept crashing. I tried to add the pictures through the normal web interface and that was having some problems. When I couldn’t delete some albums, that’s when I knew it was completely messed up. Even upgrading over the existing installation didn’t help.

Looks like I get to rebuild it from scratch this weekend! Yay!

When you drive to work and get out of your car and then ask yourself “Am I wearing underwear?”, you know it’s going to be a good day.

Why the hell did The Berry Zone have to pick the exact same Blogger template as me? I mean, come on, dude already stole my first name, he doesn’t have to be lazy and steal the same damn template!

No matter, it’s all love.

Hmm, power to weight ratios, one of the most important aspects of any car. The Focus only has 130 HP but it only weighs 2551 pounds and has 135 ft-lbs. The Camaro, on the other hand has only 140 HP and weighs 3103 pounds but has 180 ft-lbs. A few calculations later give 19.62 pounds-per-HP and 18.90 pounds-per-ft-lb for the Focus and 22.16 pounds-per-HP and 17.24 pounds-per-ft-lb for the Camaro. The Focus is faster than the Camaro but the Camaro has better low-end acceleration? Weird.

Now that Russell is moving out and I do not have a roommate yet, my rent goes from $672.50 a month to $1570 a month! I get to pay $95 a month for the right to a second parking space when I do find a roommate. I also get the fun of trying to find said roommate which is becoming harder than I expected. Thanks!

Woohoo, I donated $10 to MusicBrainz today. Horrible name but great service. You feed it an MP3 and it spits back out the correct Artist, album, genre, etc and resaves the file with the correct information automatically. Totally free but also totally worth a $10 donation.
