UPDATE: Buying LCD Monitors.

gadgets tech suggest edit

In a previous post I mentioned that I bought an LCD monitor from some unknow Yahoo store. Well I recieved it yesterday and I can’t tell you how happy I am with it. I’ve never seen such a nice, well built, sharp LCD. It took my eyes a few minutes to adjust as I think they’ve grown accustomed to blurry text. In any case, the store sells it for $399.00 (includes shipping) which is a steal. Here’s the URL http://store.yahoo.com/3btech/deulbysa17fl.html

The Onion Taken Seriously

humor suggest edit

I’m not one to act like an elitist snob and make fun of stupid people. Ok, who am I kidding. I do like to make fun of stupid people. Especially those with no sense of humor. Wired News has this great article about how many people take The Onion as serious news.

DISCLAIMER: When I say Player’s handbook, I’m not talking about a “Playa’s Handbook”. The book I am referencing is absolutely the WRONG thing to read if you want to pick up chicks. I’m already married, so I can bring this stuff out.

Car Accident

personal suggest edit

I have a perfect eagle eye view of a car accident that just happened on San Vicente. Looks like a gray SUV slammed into the side of a little red civic or corolla (can’t tell from here on the 17th floor). Funny how all these cars are slowly driving around it as it blocks most of the intersection. They just want to get on with their lives. Both passengers walked out of the car and seem to be having a civil conversation about it.

It’s finally official. We are legally, emotionally, officially, proud owners of a townhouse style condo. For you non-LA people, I could buy a 5 bedroom estate in Anchorage, Alaska for what we’re paying. Heck, I could buy a 5 bedroom house in Seattle or Portland.

Why is LSD use down

drugs suggest edit

Hofmann blotter
LSDLSD use is way down in recent years, according to arrest records, hospital records, and surveys with high schoolers. Slate looked into it, and came up with two reasons why. First and foremost, the DEA busted a couple of guys in rural Kansas back in 2000, who supplied 95 percent of the country’s acid. The other reason is the breakup of the Grateful Dead.

“The LSD market took an earlier blow in 1995, when Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia died and the band stopped touring. For 30 years, Dead tours were essential in keeping many LSD users and dealers connected, a correlation confirmed by the DEA in a divisional field assessment from the mid-‘90s. The spring following Garcia’s death (the season the MTF surveys are administered), annual LSD use among 12th-graders peaked at 8.8 percent and began their slide. Phish picked up part of the Dead’s fan base—and presumably vestiges of the LSD delivery system. At the end of 2000, Phish stopped touring as well, and perhaps not coincidentally, the MTF numbers for LSD began to plummet.”
