Tonight, for the 34th consecutive year, I will fail to make it through Ten Commandments.

At least some of it, yeah.  It's better in HD.

Another shot of the koi pond.  That middle guy probably weighs 20 pounds.

I love the sharpness of the surface here.  I feel like I could reach out and stick my hand in the water and have it devoured by a 20-pound koi.

My dad's Koi pond is crazy.

Koi are awesome.  Every time I look at buying a house, it involves the question "where could we put a pond?"

Bought all the Harry Potter movies, watching Deathly Hallows first.

+Amazon.com Cloud Player app for iOS sucks so bad.  When I create a playlist and add songs to it, you know what my expected behavior is?  It's totally that the songs will end up in some random order on the playlist.

Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

Truth.
 
"This isn’t their problem, guys. It’s ours. We have to solve it.

Sexual harassment isn’t an occupational hazard. It’s not a glitch in the complex matrix of modern life. It’s not something that just “happens.” It’s something men do. It’s a choice men make. It’s a problem men enable. It’s sometimes a crime men commit. And it is not in the power nor the responsibility of women to wage war on this crime."

+Bridget Spitznagel well... actually, I've always tended to like bad guys and anti-heroes more than the Superman types. That said, even the bad guys don't treat women as badly as real people when it comes to the Internet.

+Michael Comia You're preaching to the choir, man.  I love okra, which is why I bought this stuff.  I like okra in gumbo, in Indian food, and there's plenty of okra in Vietnamese food too.

This stuff in this particular package: gross.

Alt text: I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express.

I give iOS a lot well-deserved grief, but I think this is genuinely cool. Not particularly innovative, but useful and cool nonetheless.

Very cool shop. I needed an 82mm lens cap (not the most common size) and they had it. Also had an r-strap in stock to replace my broken one. They definitely saved me from taking the rest of my vacation pictures with an iPhone. Very friendly and no nonsense staff.
