9/30/04 Flashing

Barcelona bar-goers can now pay for drinks by flashing implanted RFID chip. Women can still avoid paying by flashing something else.

9/28/04 Let me tell you why we suck

Bears quarterback Rex Grossman is out for the season. Not to mention other injuries to half their defense, we can probably look to the 2005 season right now. But hey, at least we got the Bulls.

9/27/04 Bullet holes the size of matzah balls

I'm going to brag a little bit only because I had an absolutely amazing time this weekend. If you ever have the chance to spend some time in Mexico, might I recommend a weekend stay in Mazamitla. It's a town up in the mountains where you can rent cabins and ride horses down to a waterfall - which is all new for a kid who grew up in the midwest.

You guys are never going to believe this - I rented this real neat four wheel deal, ATV. It was the most amazing thing I ever saw.

9/25/04 Eyes from above

A big thanks to Mike for sending facts to me in Mexico. Check out this site from NASA -
"World Wind allows any user to zoom from satellite altitude into any placeon Earth, leveraging high resolution LandSat imagery and SRTM elevationdata to experience Earth in visually rich 3D, just as if they were reallythere."(Supposedly, you can get down to the meter scale.)

9/24/04 Kobe's Privates

Some long, long transcript of Kobe Bryant's interview with police is now available to the public. If you're really bored, could you summarize it in 2 setences or less for the rest of us?

Christina Aguilera is calling Britney Spears´wedding trashy. Let the catfights begin.

9/22/04 Carne en su jugo

I´m in Mexico and my first meal was ¨Carne en su jugo¨, which means meat in its own juice. But that´s kinda confusing, since su jugo could mean ¨your juice¨, ¨his juice¨, ¨her juice¨ or ¨their juice¨. And no offense or anything, but the last thing I want to eat is meat in your juice.

In other news, I don´t have the faintest idea of what´s happening in the rest of the world, so I urge you to comment on this post and submit something cool, since I obviously will fall short on my own today.

9/21/04 - I've GOTTA have more cowbell

I just learned that I'm not the only one with a fever. Here's the prescription.

While I'm on the topic of Christopher Walken, here's a clip where he's hosting a Presidential Debate.

Here's some song and video about Lindsay Lohan's boobs. They've sure gotten their share of attention, so this will be the first and last time I mention them.

King of Karaoke

Sing along with Michael Jackson - My favorite things

Also, thanks to Nicki for sending along rules to Zoom, one of my favorite games from my college years.


I've fought the idea of making this page into a blog for a long, long time. I guess it's the fact that I believe that it's really not a blog, but a unique list of things I learn everyday.

But in honor of Nacho Independence Day (October 2nd, in case you may have forgotten) I am going to Mexico. And this will be the only way to post updates while I'm gone. So, we'll consider this a little trial and see how it works.

All previous facts can be found at And now you can post comments about these facts, so go for it.

Also, return to when you're finished.
