I am so glad that Guinness chose to go this route rather than showing yet another group of snotty hipsters sitting around with smug looks on their faces. This is what real friends do. It makes me proud to be a Guinness fan.

What is the name of that comic book he buys in the first couple of seconds? Is that Testostroman?

Or is it "TESTRO TEAM"?

Either way, I think that is pretty hilarious.

Also, the only Chase commercial that I like. It is very human and the guy is such a regular guy instead of some rich or famous person.

Survey Question:

Who can read actual words in their dreams?

I often dream that I am reading something, or that there is some form with information on it, or that I am writing something. However, I can never actually tell what the words are. They shape-shift before my very eyes (OK, before my dream-eyes). I can't make my hands form actual letters and I end up with large thick scribbles. I will sometimes think I know what the words mean, but when I refer back to them, cannot see for sure that what I think is what they really say.

A rant about the quality of what passes for "technical writing" these days. It's short. I promise.
Warning: This post is mostly a rant. I read a lot of technical documentation. Software manuals, mostly. Some programming books. 99% of all these books, posts, and guides are utterly worthless. And half of each document or bo...

Actually, I read it twice and on the second go around I got it at "swat flies" and "remove dirt." The rest confirmed my suspicion. The witch actually threw me for a second. lol

I think you are missing the other big differences - adverts, and your friends and family.

PS. To be honest although I know three column is a better use of space I find it harder to parse.

Their new address is 9721 e East Highway 290, Austin, TX but they are not open for business yet (12/21/2013). Their phone message says to give them another couple of weeks to get things "squared away."

This is a very well laid-out clinic. Unlike other hospitals and clinics where you go in the front door and then have to wind your way through a bunch of hallways and poorly marked doors, this clinic has almost everything open to a large central mall-like area. So, when you go the the information desk and ask them where something is, they can just point to it from where they are sitting and you can walk there in a few steps. My hat's off to the architects.

OK, this is the most eclectic coffee shop I have found in this town. It is a great place to get comfortable with five - count 'em - FIVE sofas.

Every time I walk in there is at least one, and often two people just waiting to help me. When you tell them what you need they will walk you back to where it is and even pull it off the shelf and put it in your hands. The only way they could be more helpful is if they drove it over to my house for me.
