Speaking to me in public like they know me...including waving while driving.

BEP perfectly summarized:

"It's rock and roll for people who don't like rock and roll, it's rap for people who don't like rap, it's pop for people who don't like pop."

Emad Burnat's Academy questionaire

no. (fb)

Today is one of those days where I find blackfolX reaction to something
likely mis-aimed.

This is part of the reason why I've decided to make today a fb fast day.

Yesterday started as a food fast day.

It ended with me eating an entire mediocre, overpriced pizza.

(which blew out 3 other separate things I'd mostly made a divestiture from)

Let's see if today's venture sticks.

Had a dream I was in a class setting with a teacher that seemed to have it out for me. It involved reading something in a way that I couldn't quite do proficiently, me feeling conspicuous, that class feeling awkward at obvious conflict. Or something.

I would love it

If I could one day (soon) manage to stop screwing up in bunches.

I just heard

"Times a Wastin'" for the first time on the train.

One would think it wouldn't have taken listening to it for 12 years for that to happen.

A Plea for Help

Please, make me stop watching The Office (US) on my mother's netflix so I can get something done.

I have, for the first time in my life so far as I know, seen a picture of my brother's biological father.

I just scratched out a section on a script and noticed the smell of ball-point ink for the first time.

Fox News Claims Solar Won't Work In US Because It's Not Sunny Like Germany

Will Oremus, SLATE

Thanks to Fox News and its expert commentators, millions of Americans now understand the real, hidden reason why Germany's solar-energy industry is so much further along than ours. Turns out it has nothing to do with the fact that Germany's government has long supported the industry far more generously, with policies like feed-in tariffs that stimulate investment in green technologies. No, the real reason is much simpler, explained a trio of journalists on Fox & Friends: It's always sunny in Germany!
"The industry's future looks dim," intoned host Gretchen Carlson at the beginning of the segment, which was preserved for posterity by the liberal blog Media Matters for America. She and her co-host went on to ridicule Obama's "failed" solar subsidies, adding, "The United States simply hasn't figured out how to do solar cheaply and effectively. You look at the country of Germany, it's working out great for them." Near the end of the segment, it occurred to Carlson to ask her expert guest, Fox Business reporter Shibani Joshi, why it might be that Germany's solar-power sector is doing so much better. "What was Germany doing correct? Are they just a smaller country, and that made it more feasible?" Carlson asked.
Joshi's jaw-dropping response: "They're a smaller country, and they've got lots of sun. Right? They've got a lot more sun than we do." In case that wasn't clear enough for some viewers, Joshi went on: "The problem is it's a cloudy day and it's raining, you're not gonna have it." Sure, California might get sun now and then, Joshi conceded, "but here on the East Coast, it's just not going to work."
Gosh, why hasn't anyone thought of that before? Wouldn't you think that some scientist, somewhere, would have noticed that the East Coast is far less sunny than Central Europe and therefore incapable of producing solar power on the same scale?
You would—if it were true. As Media Matters' Max Greenberg notes, it isn't. Not even remotely. According to maps put out by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, virtually the entirety of the continental United States gets more sun than even the sunniest part of Germany. In fact, NREL senior scientist Sarah Kurtz said via email, "Germany's solar resource is akin to Alaska's," the U.S. state with by far the lowest annual average of direct solar energy.
I look forward to Fox News' correction. Meanwhile, enjoy toggling between the video above and the map below and shaking your head.


I can hear someone snoring in the building.

I need to move somewhere apartments don't exist.

U gotsa to chill..!

I still don't understand tights as outerwear, particularly when it's cold.

There is a reason ski suits are puffy.

Yeah. Pretty much. Life.

(all enjoyable; referring to 11:06 specifically)

I'm just slightly embarrassed that my common though not constant attitude toward sex has been so succinctly summarized without my input.

Dream that

I got some kind of mange that was swiftly turning my face/head hair white.

Causing me to like like a b/w Wookie/wolfman.

The beast doth make the world tremble and yawn.
