Which tarp should I buy from +Amazon.com? The $2.99 or $99,990.00 version? This is an even bigger quandary than the old shoes I found for $35.99 or $10,250.00.

Today I learned that +NFL Shop sorts +Seattle Seahawks license plate frames by gender. I didn't know license plates were gender specific. Now I do. Here's where you find those womanly frames.

I had a pair of dark indigo raw selvedge jeans I wanted to convert into a pale blue pair. 

This is heresy in the raw denim community. I figured it was OK since I have two pairs of raw denim jeans, I'm going for the fade with the other pair, I really wanted a new pair of pale blue jeans, and repurposing makes more sense than buying even more.

To do the deed I used three Home Depot buckets in the tub. One was bleach with water, one was just water, and one was water with hydrogen peroxide to neutralize any remaining bleach. My plan was to bleach, rise, neutralize. Fun fact, bleach and hydrogen peroxide combined make Chlorine gas. So I had that going for me.

I used an old pair of jeans that I liked as a reference point. Since even light blue jeans look dark when they're wet I soaked these and kept them around during the adventure.

As afraid as I was of the bleach I expected the jeans to either immediately fall apart or bleach to white in 10 seconds. Turns out that with a 10 to 1 water to bleach ratio it still took 40 minutes.

When I thought they were finished baking I took them out and ran them through a regular washing machine cycle. I think I came pretty close for my first try.

The best part of +Frontier Communications telling me my internet would be down for two days was when they tried to sell me virus protection. How am I going to get a virus without a network connection? Floppy disk?

My Trezor arrived. Yeah. Except their security warning made me laugh. They put a hologram on the box so you can tell if it has been tampered with. Except they only put a hologram on the top. Should I be concerned that I got my Trezor out of the box without hurting the hologram or ripping the box? Am I trustworthy? Can I trust myself with Bitcoin on a device I may have tampered with? Humm...

I laughed when I saw it. But really? Who else could the Seahawks put on the ticket for the game against the Santa Clara 49ers?

It was a good day, sharing The Book of Mormon musical with 6 friends. Now I'm going to have the soundtrack stuck in my head for weeks.

A "Legion of Boom" boom truck appeared on the construction site building the new Google campus today. I approve. The arm is blue with a bright green hose and "Legion of Boom" in bold white letters. To complete the look the base is gray, lets say Wolf Gray, with a big Seahawk logo.

Basically it's exactly what I would do if I owned a big boom truck. The only way it could be any better is if it transformed into a giant Decepticon killing machine that ate the Santa Clara 49ers for lunch.
