So long, and thanks for all the fish

The Yangtze river dolphin is officially extinct. So says the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2007/aug/08/endangeredspecies.conservation This isn't entirely unexpected, but I still feel sick after reading this. Who's next in the endangered species dead pool?

Forgive me Hairy Father for i have sinned. I sang Elton John at last Mondays Karaoke night. But that Crocodile really Does rock. Hail Bacon, full of Grease, forgive me my Trespasses as mercifully as I mercilessly pummel those who would Trespass against me. Aman. Apologize for nothing. There isn't a...

Be a dick to a cop, even if he's not being a dick to you. Then run like hell. It'll be the biggest rush you ever get. Fix'd. And if you haven't met the girl in person yet, don't waste $50 on a phone call to her when she's already said she's thinking about dumping you. And, if all else fails, just r...

In Police Quest II getting ganked over and over by the hijackers because I didnt RE-adjust my gun sights for the third time. It's been 15 years and I'm still bitter about that.

FFVI is my hands down favorite. I also love IX because it doesn't take itself too seriously (at least until the end) and the combat systems is less broken than the other ps-era FFs. The card game is a total waste of time, but in a good way. XII is good because they finally did something different wi...

The only sport I play is golf (and badly), but I follow basketball (Kansas Jayhawks and Boston Celtics) and minor league baseball (Go Mallards! Wooo!). And it's not really a sport but I do love the professional wrestling.

I read Infinite Jest TWICE!

Feynman's Six Not So Easy Pieces. I'm not saying I understood it, but I read it.

The Iliad and The Odyssey. Spoiler Alert: The Iliad sucks.

Everything I know about life: Don't spend a lot of time worrying about your mistakes. You'll have plenty of them and it's not worth spending a lot of time on. Don't tuck your t-shirt into your pants. It looks silly. Go to the doctor & dentist at least once a year, even if you don't think you nee...

Forgive me Hairy Father, for I have sinned against you many times this week: I did prepare and eat a tasty rissoto, even through there was no Lady present to try and impress, and there was perfectly good cold pizza in the fridge. And with this rissoto I did drink wine, instead of Pabst Blue Ribbon, ...

Ok, here is my ugly mug, in all it's unshaven glory. There's nothing intersting in the background but my hanging pikachu is just off frame to the left. So, you know, just imagine it. http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t285/bpuntch/P2050009s.jpg The hat is not just stylish, it keeps my prematurely ba...

I'm Ben. I live in Madison, WI although I'm originally from Kansas. I'm a fedex drone and an aspiring librarian. I like curry, psychadelic rock, and the Venture Brothers. I don't like poison ivy, or trying to learn regular expressions. I don't think I'm a spambot but identity is a tricky thing. I've...
