Most hilarious superbowl moment: I'm sitting elsewhere in the house and one of the superbowl watchers comes to me to lament that they have somehow been suckered into watching a version of the superbowl that has all the real superbowl commercials replaced with local tv show commercials. Thanks CBS!

First 3d sketch of a machine to do the ball chain siphon demo repeatedly as an art installation. Here's what the effect looks like on a smaller scale: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dQJBBklpQQ

October: "It's too early, no one is working on BM projects and looking for help yet. Try again in a few months."

January: "It's too cold, no one is working on BM projects and looking for help yet. Try again in a few months."

I wonder what comes next. Based on past experience, I predict...

April: "It's too late. Everyone working on anything big has already filled up their projects and camps. Join a small camp this year, try again next year."

The often preached radical inclusion of burns has never been my personal experience.

I accidentally left a sharp object leaning against the ambulance. As it slowly slid sideways, it traced out a seismographic image of the vehicle rocking from me moving around inside.

a fisheye attempt to capture the interior of my ambulance as I'm packing everything up to clean it out to take pictures and possibly sell it. Real cleaned out photos coming tomorrow, weather willing.

Just got pulled into an educational improv dance routine at a tech art meetup. I was the virus, all the other dancers coordinated to kill me.

Credit score dropped 150 points over the course of two months. +50 in the last week. The craziness of this system is mind boggling.

Novel feature offered by my new bank. Interesting, probably useful, possibly annoying eventually:

Re: Your Capital One 360® card ending in XXXX

Clarence,

We noticed you gave an extra generous tip for your service at SANCTUARY BISTRO on January 24, 2016.

Cost Tip Amount Total
$ 37.23 + $ 12.77 = $ 50.00

We hope your tip of 30 percent or more is because you received exceptional service, but wanted to check just in case it’s not. If you have any questions, sign in to your account to review the transaction details. If you still have concerns and want to dispute the transaction, open it and click Dispute Transaction.

When someone asks me why I don't eat asparagus... am I supposed to lie? This is one of those situations where a person probably isn't aware of the landmine they are stepping on with what seems like an innocent question.

Sparr, I've encountered much the same over the past few years when people ask, "So what do you do?" I choose to speak the truth but to keep it short. I feel like, if nothing else, the interaction will show them that they should perhaps be more mindful of the questions that they ask and too be fully equipped to handle the potential answers they could receive.

My ambulance is for sale in San Francisco. Details here: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/cto/5418724063.html
Before my purchase, this van was a little-used SWAT vehicle for Rockridge, IL, and before that a fire department ambulance for the same town. I bought it last year with the intent of living in it on...

Sneak peek, one of many pictures I took with the ambulance cleaned out today. Will post the full set to my wall here, Burning Man Classifieds, Craigslist, G+, etc tomorrow morning at peak internet surfing time. Time to get serious about upgrading my living situation.

Found this modular drawer divider system at the container store in their "stuff that isn't labeled in English" section.
