Computers were better when you were 8

So I'm here. At work. At work doing audits and taxes. Today we bought a piece of software called Number Cruncher and got all excited and said "NUMBER CRUNCHER, I FREAKING LOVE NUMBER CRUNCHER" thinking it was an old math game we used to play at school on the Apple IIc. No, stupid me, that game was called Number Munchers and you got to move a little pac-man type dude around the screen eating numbers and avoid baddies.

This one is called Number Cruncher, and you get to calculate earnings per share.

Now everyone at the office thinks I have a hard-on for financial calculation software.

Who Owns All The Organic Companies?

I've always been a sucker for corporate ownership diagrams and data visualization. It's like my failed design profession mashed-up into my business nerd personality. Here's a pretty good one from GOOD magazine:

A few other ones that are pretty good are theyrule and Who Owns Web 2.0.

Talk dirty to me

With spring fast approaching and bikers coming out in full bloom, it seems timely to bring up the topic of cycling nomenclature. When out sunbathing at the beach or having a picnic in the park, you might overhear a cyclist's conversation that seems unsavory, perhaps even scandals. However, there is no need to cover the little ones' ears; these sayings are quite innocent and a normal part of wheelmen's discourse. Here are some examples of things that sound dirty to your average pedestrian, but are quite innocent in the world of cycling:
  • Come feel my thighs.
  • Who wants a shot of Gu in their mouth?
  • I'm going to hug your ass for the rest of this ride.
  • Campy gruppo.
  • My doctor gave me this cream for my saddle sores.
  • No fatties are allowed to ride my xtracycle.
  • Nice (bike) rack!
  • You just stripped my nipple.
  • I rode that one too hard and my tube went soft.
  • Let's have sex.

new whip

Here's my latest project bike. It's an early 80's KHS turbo. Seems pretty decent so far, i'll probably convert it to a day to day slow ridding bike.
