#1155: Ha! I was right!

Jalopnik on the 110 MPG car that I discussed here.

Of particular interest is this comment in which the poster remarks that the car would have to be 62% efficient in order to get 110 MPG.

While I didn't have hard numbers, I figured it was highly unlikely. All the comments are worth reading.

The Barak Hussein Obama campaign is inventing new rights for us:

1) Everyone has the right to a college education.
2) Everyone has a right to breathe clean air.
3) Everyone has a right to free health care.
4) Everyone has a right to demand that the rich pay taxes in proportion to their ability to pay taxes.
5) Every gay man has a right to feel comfortable.

Dang, that's something else.

Some counties in California refuse to follow the California Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage. This will be interesting. Better keep an eye on this issue.

The dew point remains at 69° despite the rain we had. That means "sticky". I dislike humidity.

Last night was beastly hot at work, and the first thing I did when I got home was to take a shower. A nice and cool one. O did it feel good. I want to sleep.

I purchased a set of earbuds for the GPX MP3 player. The earbuds which came with it won't stay in my ears unless I hold them in. The ones I bought are "Skull Candy" brand and they have soft rubbery cushions on the outside which hold them in the ear. And they really sound good.

I had intended to spend $15 on them; but someone stocked the wrong item (one that had not yet been set) and the price on that item was $20. Oh well. With my discount I paid $18, which means the earphones cost me almost as much as the MP3 player did.

I talked with a coworker who's also a big gamer, and he says that World of Warcraft costs $15 per month...and I'm actually thinking I might like to try it. But I'm going to wait until winter, when I won't want to go outside and work on cars anyway. They called Everquest "Evercrack", and I suspect that WoW might just as well be called "World of WarCrack". Heh.

Other than the heat, last night was all right. I didn't have to work my ass off, nor did I have to spend too much time listening to shitmusic. I wish more of my nights at work were like that one; my feet didn't even hurt! How's that for weird?

(I did have an episode of gut malf, the "hurry to the bathroom NOW" variety, but a single tablet of Imodium prevented any further episodes thereof.)

There were two carts of water--from the pallet I dropped--in the breakroom. I took four bottles.

I'm thinking of changing my availability--instead of M-W-F, work F-Sa-M. I really don't like working on Wednesdays. This way I'd have Sunday off, and then Tu-W-Th off. Having three days off in a row would help me get stuff done; at least, it would make it easier for me to get stuff done. Downside: I'll be less available for weekend stuff, but WTF, I don't have a life anyway.

The bed, partner of sleep, cries out for me. I think I'll go keep my bed company for a while.
