1. What do you most want to be remembered for? Up to this point? Probably just being a good guy and all. I haven’t really done anything signifigant besides that. Eventually I want to be remembered for doing lots of things to help other people, whether it’s through whatever career I choose or politics if I decide to go head first into that.
2. What quotation best fits your outlook on life? “I didn’t do it.”
3. What single achievement are you most proud of in the past year? I got back into school.
4. What about the past ten years? I survived.
5. If you were asked to give a child a single piece of advice to guide them through life, what would you say? Be good.
So I picked up my first bottle of Vanilla Coke today and I’m still not sure what to make of it. Is it good? Kinda. The closest I can come to describing it is it’s like drinking the left over Coke of a Coke Float. Or, really, its more like the foam from a Coke Float, just a hint of Vanilla that grows the more you drink it and eventually can get overpowering. At first it’s a slight Vanilla, but the more you drink, the stronger it gets, almost to the point of too sweet. I’m not sure I can finish my bottle here.
I can see kids digging it, all 28 grams of sugar per serving (which a 20 oz bottle has 2.5 of) but I’m not sure adult taste buds can take it.
Would I recommend buying it? Sure, why not, give it a try, but I probably won’t get more than this one bottle myself, it’s just not my bag.

Targeted Serendipity Weblogs aren’t just glorified pages of links and rambling personal sites; they are an antidote to mass media. According to the author of “The Weblog Handbook,” Rebecca Blood, they are also bringing creative expression to everyday people when they need it most.
And have I linked to Microcontent News yet? I’m gonna add a perma-link too.
At Airport Gate, a Cyborg Unplugged Steve Mann, an engineering professor at the University of Toronto, has lived as a cyborg for more than 20 years, wearing a web of wires, computers and electronic sensors that are designed to augment his memory, enhance his vision and keep tabs on his vital signs. Although his wearable computer system sometimes elicited stares, he never encountered any problems going through the security gates at airports.

This beauty is a fully functional machine gun with TWELVE rotating barrels and a live action trigger.

Ah, something to share: My good friend Saren said some very deep, thought provoking things on the J’s Notes Board that I think everyone should take pause and think about. Print it out and keep it in your pocket so, in a time of need, you can pull it out and think about its meaning and maybe share with others, bringing joy into their lives moreso than your presence may.
I created this blog today for random stuff. I figure I can use it as an outlet for whatever. I use Blogger for a bunch of other sites and I figured one for random notes from me would be cool, be they links or mindless ramblings..
Speaking of links, here are two I’ve found today that rule. The Freak Watcher’s Textbook catalogues all sorts of freaks native to Royal Oak, Michigan. Amused.com’s Webcam Theatre is a great spot to watch grass grow or paint peel. Really.
Okay, I’m out for now.
