Well, the conventions are going on (OK, DNC done, RNC almost done), which is kind of like my World Series. The RNC has been particularly humorous watching the vicious lying right-wing bastards.

The VP choice of Sarah Palin has been particularly hysterical. It's perfect if you're an Obama supporter -- all of McCain's inane criticisms are now off the table. Experience? Can't bring that up, she's got none. Oh! But it's executive experience. Where she managed to run her town of 9,000 into a $20 million debt in 3 years. Celebrity? She was a sportscaster and a beauty pageant participant.

And the right wing spin machine is up and running. The Daily Show is the only news organization that has the balls to show the two-faced bastards with their conflicting statements back to back.

And people think it's funny that many people get their news only from Stewart/Colbert?!? Those ARE the only news sources around...

cubes from the 80's
    colorful twisting puzzle
        finally nailed you!

I was an early adopter of the Rubik's Cube, oh so many years ago. It was a geometric marvel. Loved the simple colors, and crazy combinations you could make. But I was never really into solving it.

Recently, with the help of a coworker, I finally now know how to kick that little cube's butt!

Here it is...

ERIGHT. I know what you're thinking... DUDE, that has too few cubes on it. That's only 2x2x2... doesn't count.

And you're probably right. But I feel proud anyways... it's not as easy as it looks, really.

There's a good instructional vid for solving it:

So the 3x3x3 cube is next!! (OK, not really. I'm happy with the mini...)
