A while back I wrote a short post titled “Whatcha Gonna Do?” about my thoughts about what it would take to survive as a homeless person. Now somebody started a whole blog about that : “Survival Guide to Homelessness”. I may know how to make my own caffeinated mouthwash, but this dude has be beat at making his own adult wipes.
“It’s like racial harmony in your mouth “. Huh, it’s been years since I’ve had one. I did not know that it was such a New York thing though.
I am going to break my rule of not repeating slashdot news. Why? Because Apple called. They want their ipod ebook back.
Eink. How the hell can do you pronounce that? Oink? Well, if it’s not vaporware and actually performs I might forgive them this silly name.
Check out their management team. Jerry Kaplan is nowhere in sight. Maybe they have half a chance. Also, one of the co-founders clawed his way to a President. They did not make him CEO, so that makes me think that a search for a “professional” CEO is underway.
Interesting, the entire team except for the CFO majored in chemistry, math, physics or engineering. Even the sales dude. Does a chem major a good sales dude make?
There is a book that I can’t find for a long time. I’ve seen its author on one of the late night shows many years ago.
The dude specializes in hand training. He trains surgeons, pianists and athletes. He showed some really neat tricks – like doing a horizontal wave with just the tips of his fingers. He was hawking a book that he wrote. And I’d like to have that book. But I don’t remember what it was called and keyword searches don’t bring anything.
I go through Times Square almost every day on my way to work and back home. Yesterday I was working until midnight, so on my way back I took some pictures with my brand new digital camera. The train + train + bus ride that usually takes 1.5 hours took me 3 hours this time because of subway repairs. I should really move to Manhattan.
I know, I know, it’s a cliché. Still.. I pass this by every day.
I really hate the crudely photoshopped ad on top. They are reusing the “flashing” dude in subway ads by mirror flipping him. The ad is for Revlon, I think.
I could not figure how to crop this picture, but this seems to work.
