Can you tell the difference

Boost mobile add or Credo mobile ad? Differentiate much?

Hans: "I guess you can go back to being a just a douche bag"

ebay going down the tubes

I was surprised to see that ebay is going to remove the negative comment feature. First of all it removes one of the major recourses for buyer. Second, they are looking at symptoms and not problems. I stopped selling on ebay because of all the third-world scammers. It was an absolute waste of my time and the time of other legit bidders. I don't care what other features are coming up on ebay. If they don't address that problem then, I'm not going to buy or sell on ebay.

Canadian cowboys

At dinner last night a friend told me that he was once in Calagary for business during the Calgary Stampede. He was surprised to see cowboys in Canada. They had the hats, the boots, the spurs....but something was missing. It finally dawned on him. "How can they be cowboys if they don't have guns?". He went on to describe how sidearms are common in Dallas as part of regular attire. If the cowboy hat is like a turban, then maybe sidearms are like the Texan version of the Sikh dagger?

Monocle is a great new magazine. New being Feb 2007, new to me being this month. Insightful articles and great diagrams. Topics ranging from the arms industry to design. Content size ranges from quick reads to more leisurely. Many glossy ads of meaningless crap that you don't need but you really, really want. Its like a balancing act between the important and the frivolous done right...ish.

I only pay for ID magazine now. I might add this.


So my regular doctor said that the ER doctor was wrong. He said that L4 nerves are highly unlikely to get pinched. L5 and S1 are where the sciatica nerves get pinched. That makes physical sense. I was wondering when looking at the L4 lines going up when the ER doctor showed me the diagram.

So I just killed the ends of my nerves. The good news is nerve endings grow back.
