Obsessively detailed building of the maze from "The Shining." Great story, fascinating process.
Well done, Adam!

People's obsessions are fascinating things, especially our own.

Actually put on my down jacket in the wee hours of this morning when I slipped out to get smokes at the convenience store. First time in a couple years. This is from 9am today. Coldest 16 February in 100-some years here in Central PA.

My luck would be to get one that reads:

"Be My Lawn-Mowing, Home-Maintenance, Car-Fixing, Take My Mother Shopping and Buy Me Shit While You're At It Valentine."

"Be My Fucking Valentine" would be a really nice request.

I barely even bother anymore, Bob. If I meet a great woman, and we click semi-immediately, I'll engage the engine. Otherwise, I just do my best at connecting with openly friendly, confident, smart, self-reliant, creative people in general. If one of them happens to be a romantically unencumbered woman, all the better.

How do you all feel about "chick" when referring to a female?
As a child of the '60s & '70s, it's kind of ingrained in me. I've never meant it as derogatory or diminutive. Quite to the contrary, in my mind, a "chick" is smart, resourceful, adventurous, outspoken, brave and bold in thought & action, and if lucky, attractive and stylish. I prefer a "chick" to a more refined woman (read: traditionally typecast).

But, I could be wrong, so I have to ask, and I have to do a little language & sociological research, as I did with the following, which is all news to me:
http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2012/08/why-are-women-called-sluts-dames-and-broads/

Hmm...maybe I should reconsider? Usually, when I meet a woman I really like, I'll explain to them that if I refer to her as "a really cool chick," it's because she embodies those positive qualities I mentioned. But I could be alone in my interpratation:

Fucking frozen pizza set off the goddamned smoke alarms and I pressed that sonofabitching button for 10 fucking minutes and the bastards—6 of the goddamned things all over the house—just would not shut the fuck off. My ears hurt, my pizzas burned, I have a blister on my thumb and my cat died on the way to the animal hospital 15 minutes before all this. Fuckin' right I'm going to be a little cranky tonight.

Goodbye Sunny...I'm going to miss you. Smoke alarms and pizza...go fuck yourselves.

Confessions of a Lazy Food Lover

I just had Sriracha sauce for the first time. I had been thinking about it since yesterday when I read the story of how its creator, David Tran, never bothered to trademark the name "Sriracha."
https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20150212/07144630001/sriracha-boss-trademark-mmmmm-no-thanks.shtml

Doesn't seem to have hurt his business in the least. There's a lesson there.

I know, I know...it's a staple on the tables of many Asian restaurants. People go crazy for the stuff, and fans created a nationwide panic when producers Huy Fong Foods was being sued by Irwindale CA because the residents didn't want to put up with the aroma. Word was their beloved sauce was going to go out of business, and a buying frenzy ensued.

I had gotten some frozen breaded Habañero + Mango chicken bites a couple weeks ago, and they were only so-so. But, they were on sale, so I figured: "How bad can they be?" Well, they weren't spicy enough, and they weren't mango-y enough.

While I was shopping today in the imported foods section of the upscale local supermarket I was getting ready to leave after grabbing a few things when I saw the Sriracha out of the corner of my eye. Grabbed it up, and headed out.

Once back home I decided to polish off the rest of the frozen chicken bites.

Sriracha saved it.

I don't think I'll ever be without it again.

I can't believe it took me until 2 days ago to go looking for a topographic/contour lines overlay/add-on for GoogleEarth. Further, I don't understand why G.E. wouldn't provide a topo layer as part of a default installation.

http://equipped.outdoors.org/2012/12/how-to-add-usgs-topographic-maps-to.html
Did you know that you can overlay every available USGS topo map on Google Earth for free? And that you can set it up in a matter of minutes? Here's how: 1) Install Google Earth if you haven't already. 2) Download the Google Earth topo map layer from the ArcGIS Services Directory (it's the NGS ...

Many topographical maps I've run across suffer from the fact that they're often only available as raster images, as opposed to resolution-agnostic vector-based renderings.

EXCELLENT music bed, I'm so glad whoever posted this video (Rick C? Jeff L?) made the effort to credit the composition and the musicians.
Wishing you luck with your sale, Eddie V...may it start a bidding war!
