7017 - I bet you've never smelled a real school bus before.

Looks like form buttons still work... I've really got to clean up the links to dead sites, and revise some of my old static text on the website. Maybe over TG weekend.

Short Week! Monday-Wed is it. I'm getting TG and the following Friday off, and I have technician issues covered.

I have some kind of crazy mojo going on lately. I'm surely going to kick back and enjoy it while it lasts.

While I'm feeling particularly egotistical....
Hercules, hero of song and story!
Hercules, winner of ancient glory!
Fighting for the right, fighting with his might;
With the strength of ten, ordinary men!
Hercules, people are safe when near him!
Hercules, only the evil fear him!
Softness in his eyes, iron in his thighs;
Virtue in his heart, fire in every part of
The Mighty Hercules!
Having a sidekick named Newton is purely coincidental.

When I saw a clip last night from Ferris Bueller's Day off, all I could think of was "Drunk Driver (Broderick) vs Pedophile (Jones)". Also starring that Dirty Dancing gal before she got her nose job, and the Perv character from Spin city.

The absolute best site about jam sandwiches.

Workers came back on Sunday, and started doing more remodeling in the apartments next door... it sounds like they're tearing up the floor tile again, or an outside wall.

G-Cans - The G-Cans Project is a massive project, begun 12 years ago, to build infrastructure for preventing overflow of the major rivers and waterways spidering the city (A serious problem for Tokyo during rainy-season and typhoon season). The underground waterway is the largest in the world and sports five 32m diameter, 65m deep concrete containment silos which are connected by 64 kilometers of tunnel sitting 50 meters beneath the surface. The whole system is powered by 14000 horsepower turbines which can pump 200 tons of water a second into the large outlying edogawa river.

The photos are amazing, and the scale is stunning. I would love to visit Tokyo, just to tour that facility.

More Cowbell has a cool sounding indie Christmas mix.

I see a flu-bug is running around LJ... I wonder if anyone on my reading list has caught it from anyone else on my reading list, indirectly? It's pretty widely distributed... East and West Coast of USA, UK, and Canada.
