Some library in Fairfield, NJ

25 10 2007

So, I out of curiosity I looked up to see where the local library was in the area and I go to their website http://www.ffpl.org/html/contact.htm and, the first thing I notice in the left hand corner is “FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY”. Hm,  I wasn’t aware that some libraries charge you to borrow books, I thought it was always a free public resource. (Unless, they make you pay a 50 cents toll before letting you enter the library, which I wouldn’t be surprised knowing how things are runned around here…) . Or, maybe people here are just not interested in reading, a lot of times I pass by a Barnes & Noble here and there would be only a few cars in the lot, and I’m guessing most are the employees working there. So I’m thinking that by the library “advertising” itself as a free public library, they’re targeting the frugal sort that don’t even know books can be borrowed without hidden charges… and most likely because they’re illiterate to begin with.  Oh, and don’t get me started on the “Adult Crafts” (learn how to make home-made blow up dolls or erotic cakes…just kidding, actually I don’t know) and “Turn off the TV” (WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO, BESIDES WATCH TV???) events. Man, they’re fishing BIG time.    





Spider-man 3, Rockets, Golden Boy, all suck…

6 05 2007

1.) Saw Spider-man 3, the whole time I felt like I was watching the wrong movie…going in I knew it wasn’t going to be that good but I walked out feeling if I had stayed home and watched AVP and X-Men: The Last Stand back to back I would’ve felt the same but without having to drive to the movie theater or pay $1o. And whoever said there was ton of action, you must mean “talking and crying” because that was basically 3/4 of the movie while the rest of the movie was Spider-man or a villain being thrown into brick or steel walls or getting hit with metal pipes. I honestly tried to shut my brain down but there must be something like “negative stupidity” because I felt like I lost a few IQ points after walking out of the theater. 

 2.) Rockets lose their 1st round series with the Jazz. The team with the deeper bench outlasted the team  with the more talented starting five. And this series just proves how T-Mac just isn’t a trancending type of player or a “closer” type like Kobe or Dirk…oh wait…

 3.)Oscar De LaHoya lost to Mayweather. Nothing much to say but I was just rooting for Golden Boy because Mayweather came across as being an arrogant, cocky prick. I don’t root for pricks.





What the Heelys This?

26 04 2007

Heelys 

Just recently looked up info on this shoe/roller-skate hybrid called the Heely out of curiosity (and I wanted to know what the kid that almost ran me over in Target was wearing) and I was surprised how long they’ve been actually around. Created in 2001 by Roger Adams (native of Tacoma, WA by the way) his first prototype was actually a pair of Nikes, and using a hot butter knife he cut the heels out of them, cranked a rod through ’em and used skateboard bearings for rollers. Amazing! Sorry if I sound like I just walked out of a cave.

Then I thought about the positives and negatives about these things and how much of an impact they would have in our society:

Pros:
-Convenience. Don’t have to switch between shoes and skates/roller-blades. Now every household closet will have an extra space or two to put more useful things like more shoes.
-Instead of running away from somebody you can roll away as fast as you can… that is unless your pursuer has heelys too then you’re screwed.
-Motivates kids to do something outside instead of sitting around indoors doing useless things like playing video games and studying .
-Accessible to everyone, there are no weight restrictions (oddly) whatsoever.
-They look like ordinary street shoes…it’s not like moon-shoes where people can see how much of a total freak you are.
-It’s a fad. People like them.

Cons:
-It’s  a pair of Vans with wheels in them. The novelty probably wears thin after 10 minutes of gliding in circles after realizing every mall, store, school, and every other public place has banned the use of them.
-Heelys will cause a generation of  children to eventually lose their ability to use their legs.
-Walking to rolling involves just shifting your weight. I don’t know exactly how that works but what I picture is a kid accidentally rolling off an edge of a cliff while leaning or bending over. Can that happen?
-Yes! Actually no, but there’s a story of 12 year-old boy who got hit by a car while rolling in a pair of these in London. He now has permanent brain damage. Yikes.
-Heelys for Adults. I have never seen and I don’t think I ever will see a grown adult wear a pair. And when I say adult I mean over 16 years-old. 
-Roller skates, Roller Blades, and Skate Rinks will become obsolete. Oh wait, they already are.
 
Hm, to sum it up Heely is something that you’d think “Hey, I could’ve thought of something like that” but at the same time it’s so mundane almost to the “wth” point. Or perhaps I’m jealous of this multi-million dollar idea…





Dicephalus Baby

24 08 2006

 I heard about the “Dicephalus Baby” that was born in Indonesia a little while ago and this story blew me out of the water! This baby is technically a siamese twin, however instead of developing seperate bodies and being attached, in this case only one body with one set of internal organs developed, but she does have two spines.

Indonesian doctors are still mulling on whether or not to perform surgery to remove the second head, a life threatening procedure. The thing that is totally crazy is whether or not the baby is like an actual siamese twin where the twins are different individuals or if somehow the baby’s two minds are actually one with one conscience.

I was talking about it to one of my co-workers and I was wondering if one head blinks or eats, if the other head does the same action. It seemed to me that they share the same internal functions so maybe the impulses that go through the baby reach both brains. There are cases about two headed snakes that share the same actions between the two heads but it’s probably different in humans. It’s really freaky…but interesting.

Hottest wives of the NBA

8 08 2006

Check out the page HERE

Found this site browsing for news about the new $14.98 “Starbury” shoe that he’s releasing in mid-August. Which, by the way, is an upstanding act by a guy I always thought was a bastard both on and off the court but I found out he’s actually a pretty generous guy and doing things for charity and the public. So, I guess I’ll give him kudos for that…but I still think his game is as cheap as his new kicks.

BTW- I’m not surprised that NBA stars have hot wives but geezus, Peja’s wife is smoking. Did he find her in some hidden corner of Yugoslavia? He must be a lucky man when he’s not raining 3s.
