I love when she starts dancing a bit at the end, and yes, I am a total sap and closet John Denver fan.

how to survive a riot

Be prepared. If you know an area is ripe for a riot but you can't avoid traveling there, take some simple precautions to help protect yourself. Wear clothes that minimize the amount of exposed skin--long pants and long-sleeve shirts, for instance--when going out, and think about your possible escape routes and safe havens before anything actually happens. Carry some cash with you in case you need to quickly arrange transportation, pay off looters, or bribe police at a checkpoint. If you're traveling abroad, register with your country's consulate and carry your passport and/or visa with you at all times.

In this surfing book I just read 'In Search of Captain Zero' the author talks about that possibly being man's greatest fear- the fear of being eaten alive.
I can totally see that because not only is it one of the most painfull ways to die and somewhat slow and terrifying but, to top it off you're totally getting pawned by another animal. That's like the ultimate fail. And- as in this case, the shark didn't even want a 66 year old 'burly' guy. It was expecting a much sweeter tasting seal and not an old sour guy making his death even more pointless (a triathlon being one of the more useless undertakings a person could be doing). Sharks are essentially looking for a dark shadow above them roughly the same size and shape of a seal and when they spot one they come straight up from the bottom and slam into it. Kinda like if someone took a grocery cart and put a two and a half foot wide bear trap with razor jaws on the front and 3,000 lbs of groceries in the back and had a 20 yard start to get it up to speed before it rammed into you.
Here's my tip to surfers and triathletes and anyone else that needs a wet suit. A black wetsuit is basically a 'seal' costume and it might as well come with whiskers. I know the black suit is cool looking and makes you look very svelt- but seriously, if the tags said shark lure on it would you buy it?

Your kid definitely needs one of these.
And you're a cheap bastard if you don't get the chapel with storehouse and the hospital.


Did you call me sweetheart (sweatyfuck) in the bathroom at work - m4m (Wacker/Madison)

I am sure I did not hear correctly, but I could have sworen at a little after ten this morning (and five cups of coffee, 4 cigarrettes and the 'lumberjack' breakfeast at Lou Mitchels) we were both in the restroom. You came in from one direction, me the other. We(e!) you saw me, I thought for sure you called me sweetheart (sweatyfuck). You spoke very softly, so I could not be sure. I just said hi, went about my business (I do peoples taxes in the third stall) and went out the door you came in.

If you really did call me sweetheart (sweatyfuck), and are interested, let me know. I am fairly new on your floor at work, since the first of the year for me. You are one handsome man, without a doubt. Again, if you are interested, let me know. Call me sweetheart (butchy boy) when you see me, or give me a wink (flip me off), or just say yes (fuckoff). I will know what that means. Or just repsond here

little bugs (i want)

I've been contemplating actual camping (which I've NEVER done).
I'm pretty amazed by the new CAD designed tents though. They look like strange lunar bugs. This is the Marmot Aelos 2P in Terra Cotta/Pumkin.

enrico fratesi + stine gam

Looking for chair inspiration- I love how empty chairs take on a social dynamic.
These are the 'cartoon' easy chair by Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi (Stockholm Furniture Fair 08).

pool of blood came out with their 'Worlds Sexiest Pools' list and nothing says sexy like a blood red pool.
This is the Hotel Murano Oriental in Marrakesh, Morocco. Thier website plays an INSANE techno version of Hello Dolly which makes about as much sense as a red tiled pool.
Sidenote- I once painted some patio ceramic floor tiles for a client with a similar crimson red/flesh combo and it looked as scary and lasted until just after the husband came home and declared 'the patio looks like a New Orleans whorehouse'.

royal enfield

I've decided on my bike for my future travels. You see these all over India were they are manufactured. I'd like to buy a real Indian one (like 1965) and have it shipped but, that appears to involve a lot of logistics and luck. This is a 99 Bullet 500 although they all look pretty similar. They don't really update the models much and you can buy new parts for all the older models. My little brother (who rides motorcross at 40) told me I need a single cylinder bike for a long road trip to cut down on problems with multiple cylinders and carbs. I wonder if that seat is bony ass friendly

noble st grill

Was driving around with my brother in East Ukrainian Village when I saw Noble St. and told my him to pull around and down the alley. Sure enough, the grill I built was still standing (16 years!). Sorta tempted to go back and clean and tuckpoint it. The door must've fallen off years ago. Cooked a lot of pizza in that thing. Looks like the new tenants were cooking cattle or something.
