Went to Big Splash with +Ingavar Khaos-Akeela​ and +B.J. Dail​ and was there from opening to a few minutes before closing. Not quite as sore as I was from last week, but probably sunburned worse.

I wonder if Japanese anime lyricists are intentionally finding lyrics that sound OK in Japanese but are phoenetically similar to something insanely obscene in Engrish.
In which that's like, getting crap past the radar times 1000.

Not normally the kind of person to reshare stuff like this, but this one seems actually worth it.  I mean, what will be left for +Keith Richards once we're gone?

And suddenly I understand why I'm seeing a shitload of North Carolina plates and encountered a somehow even more confusing dialect of Cherokee in my part of Oklahoma lately.

It's amazing my gym teacher at the same school didn't get arrested for the same thing.  Wanna say his name was Barnes.  Either way, that dirtbag was a serious creeper and a big reason why I'd wear my gym clothes over something else.  Band, though...WTF?  Apparently it's a shame Dan Ogren can't live forever if this is who replaced him....

This seems more anger/control related than sexual, given what little is discussed in the article.

Another student's dad and the principal were the basketball coaches when I was in middle school.  Knowing what I know today about health science, proper physical training, and growing bodies, they both should have been fired for child abuse.  The way they "trained" us was extremely harmful to us and actually had little to no practical effect on our sports performance.

So who's going with us this week to Big Splash? Looking at about 10 or 11 AM Saturday, or as soon as the park opens if there's any adverse weather.

Is US DOT still doing the Safe Routes to Schools program? If so, TPS could get federal funding to put in sidewalks and bike lanes on the last entire mile leading up to schools. 
 
"Over the course of the last five years just in our district alone there have been nine children that have died from being struck by vehicles, so the need is truly great," said TPS official Blaine Young.
You might not realize it, but one of the most dangerous parts of school is simply getting there.  "Over the course of the last five years just in our district alone there have been nine children th...

Yes, wildlife loves pools.  I find it more amusing that news outlets still consider this fact of reality since forever as news.

Pioneer Courthouse Square would be better, much better, if it wasn't horribly mismanaged. Concerts, beer tasting, sandcastle contests and other events that block off the entire square and hamper access to transit really should be held in Chapman Square. Pioneer Square was designed to be a public square and transit station, not an event venue, and it fails poorly at both when events beyond the tree lighting and new year's are attempted there.

I've had to use these shitbags for my internet service for over 3 years now, because they're a monopoly in certain Tulsa neighborhoods. They randomly sign you out and force you to sign back in for no reason, throttle you for no reason, and their traffic counter verifiably overcounts data 5:1 ratio to reality. Bonus, these wastes of human life their mothers should have swallowed now make you watch ads to use the internet service you're already paying for. Strange how their ads stream smoothly but Youtube doesn't. Unresponsive and uncaring customer service (can't really call 'em technical support) refuses to even troubleshoot. Unresponsive to BBB inquiries. It's a wonder they're not the Republican Party instead; it's rare to see anyone suck this hard in the midwest without that affiliation. These assholes are exactly the reason the FCC now has network neutrality rules, and it's going to be funny as hell to see 'em get the regulatory smack down. Congratulations, TengoInternet, for somehow managing to suck harder than a cable company. If anybody deserves a lifetime of living on the street sleeping on broken glass, it's anyone who has ever worked for this company.

Want to drive off in an unsafe vehicle they said is safe? Go here. They're friendly and the appeal of some of their services like free flat repair is great. But don't trust 'em with anything more serious than fixing a flat. I asked if my tires were in good enough shape to make it back to Oklahoma, they said yes and actually refused to sell me tires when I insisted on replacing them anyway. They also only partially fixed the vibration I was experiencing at higher speeds, replacing the front brakes while completely missing a broken tie rod.

Tried to highball me and sell me a new ECU for over a thousand dollars when I had a fuel injection issue that was resolved elsewhere for about $350. A dealership would have got it right cheaper.
