Guide to Suburban Denver Subdivision Names 

It finally all makes sense.

Via BoingBoing.

Also, could someone please upgrade this blog to the new blogger so it's not such a pain in the ass to post here?

Get your beer goggles on 



An = number of units of alcohol consumed
S = smokiness of the room (graded from 0-10, where 0 clear air; 10 extremely smoky)
L = luminance of 'person of interest' (candelas per square metre; typically 1 pitch black; 150 as seen in normal room lighting)
Vo = Snellen visual acuity (6/6 normal; 6/12 just meets driving standard)
d = distance from 'person of interest' (metres; 0.5 to 3 metres)

Another one from Unfogged.

The N word 

Dear god. A white teacher calls his black student a you-know-what, then tries to defend himself to a black reporter. He's even got flash cards illustrating how the slang version (ends in a) that he used is a completely different word from the traditional version (ends in er) and is therefore not derogatory. It is very, very sad.



Thanks, Ogged.

zeal for all 

I've always felt that some of the "non-religious" or "secular" people I knew were the most representative of the dogmatic fervor they claimed to hate about organized religious groups. Nicholas Kristof has an interesting piece on this.

Note: I think he directs his point to the religious intolerants just as much as the secular. The point being: dude, chill on the fanaticism.

The World According to Ronald Reagan 

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
