Re: "Mattress" Discussion

I've always wanted to opt for the "detachable arm" rather than have a hole in my mattress. Still, once again XKCD makes a comic straight from my own head (minus the rock'em sock'em robots) and makes me feel like I am not alone.

Re: Boston Phoenix article - The Wisdom of Crowds

An "exposed breast"?

Really?

Was it an exposed girl breast?

I wasn't there for that part.

How exactly can we go to these meetups if they are in the future? I have no method of traveling through time to any other moment from the 'present'. Could one of you fellow forumers let me car-pool with you in your time-machine next time?

Sarah (girlfriend), Helen, Barbie and I at the Museum of Science. Ben/Dragonhawk was with us as well but somehow managed not to get in any photos.

The photos I managed to get from my camera's dwindling memory (my fault, I forgot I hadn't cleared it recently) are here. These are all from the morning trip to the Museum of Science.

More will come once I can get Sarah's camera. She has ones of the actual meet-up.

Someone was going around with a handycam doing interviews and ended up interviewing the furry next to me and then walked away. I felt burned. Who was that guy?


Also, nobody was on PictoChat! I brought my DS and everything and not one of you nerds had yours fired up? So disappointing.

I assumed it was some math/programming abbreviation that I wasn't familiar with. At all the schools I attended if something wasn't erased by a teacher at the end of the day, then it was left up. We didn't have a special code for the cleaning people, we just erased our own stuff.
