Among the funniest of my recent discoveries is that my ex, Melodie Reece, has become Faceboob friends with my brother. This is funny because she looks exactly the same as she did 10+ years ago when I dumped her on Christmas day. Poor thing can never look at a present again without thinking about the one that got away. When the whole of your life is “Being the Preeble County Bukkake Queen” I probably seem like a pretty good catch. I blame that 300lb indiscretion on being young and foolish.
I wanted to take a moment to cover the recent Japanese nuclear tragedy. Apparently some cultural confusion has come from the symbols used it identify radiation hazards.
This symbol is obviously used to indicate that there is a fan nearby and one should bask in it’s cooling ionizing breeze with no fear…Maybe “Don’t stick your fingers in the fan” but that’s about it.
What they should be using is the new and improved ISO 21482 symbol. Even small children recognize this as bad like Mr. Yuck, The Cookie Monster, Skeletor, and Newt Gingrich.
Even this has potential for cross-cultural variation in interpretation. Some primitive rock dweller people may see this and think it is a divine font of resurrection… Open this and slather it on your dead people and they’ll be running the Boston Marathon in no time flat!
In other news – my previous employer Plug Power has decreased their losses from 9 million dollars last quarter to only 6 million dollars this quarter. By the miracle of linear extrapolation – they should cross over into the black by sometime next year. Now if only they didn’t start that forklift fire in the Kingsford charcoal plant, electrocute three migrant workers, and have a runaway fork truck push a bus load of seminary students into a brothel – they might have a plan. Ok, some of that is fictional but it’s funny none the less. The fire was at the Nestle Bottled water factory, The person that almost got electrocuted was a South African national, and they let me drive a forklift once. They talk about a path to profitability – but really the CEO has a path to profitability…the company itself…not so much…
