The Constant Awesome
On December 8, 1995, the editor-in-chief of Elle magazine, Jean-Dominique Bauby, suffered a stroke and lapsed into a coma. He awoke 20 days later, mentally aware of his surroundings but physically paralyzed with the exception of some movement in his head and eyes (one of which had to be sewn up due to an irrigation problem). In his nearly immobile state, Jean-Dominique Bauby wrote a book by communicating by blinking his left eyelid. A transcriber repeatedly recited a French language … [Read more...] about The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
I've been wearing these Fivefinger Vibram KSO's since August 2010 and not a day goes by when I don't get some comments or questions about them when I go out. I'll share some of the things they ask and what I tell them! You would probably ask one of these questions as well, haha. :) Woah! Those are shoes? Yes, they are shoes. If you like being barefoot, these are awesome. They help retain the barefoot-feel very well because the bottom is thin enough so I could feel the surface but it's … [Read more...] about Why Wear Vibrams?
First things first. I love efficiency. I am a fan of efficiency. I think in terms of efficiency often. When it comes to cars, I like lightweight cars. I like small cars. I like cars that are engineered to handle really well. For these reasons alone, I love old cars, as they used to weigh a lot less. And I love old European cars to be specific, as they both handle well and are light weight. When the MINI Cooper came out in 2003, it impressed me because there was finally a car on the … [Read more...] about I Love Efficiency
Lots of funny social observations happening at Santa Monica College this week! I'll share one... I wanted to add a Biology class that was supposed to start at 12:45pm. I found the door to it around 12:30. There were a couple people just hanging out right in front of the door, as if the door was locked and they were waiting for the professor to come open the door. I was a bit early and decided to go a bit further away, so I could be in the open air and under the beautiful, light … [Read more...] about Sheep-like behavior at school

For you see, I was around 24 years old when I learned how to properly peel a banana. Talk about a late bloomer huh! I used to pull the handle-end until it ripped, but what I was supposed to being doing was to pinch the other side. Look at the stubby tip above on the left side. You're supposed to just pinch it and peel the banana easily from there. Yeah... You know how to do that? Good!!! Well if you are one of those people who didn't know that, then... hey! … [Read more...] about If you are in your 20’s or younger, you need to read this
One day I decided to play with my dog Medax as usual and the digital camera was nearby so i just set it on the carpet and caught footage. She knocked the camera twice! haha anyway.. dogs are awesome. … [Read more...] about Playing with my dog, Medax.
Deep Thoughts I think a funny thing to say, when the check-out clerk at the grocery store asks you if you want paper or plastic, is "cold, hard steel." Then you just stand there, acting like you don't know what the problem is. My kid asked me, "Dad, where do babies come from?" So I told him all about the baby factory, and how it was hard, dangerous work, and how the mean capitalist bosses made people work in terrible conditions with low pay and no benefits, and also how the workers had to go … [Read more...] about Deep, Deeper and Deepest Thoughts
