I’m not going to call it masturbating anymore, now I’m ‘fucking Manti Teos ex-girlfriend’.
An Osborne Executive portable computer, from 1982 with a Zilog Z80 4MHz CPU, and a 2007 Apple iPhone with a 412MHz ARM11 CPU. The Executive weighs 100 times as much, is nearly 500 times as large by volume, costs approximately 10 times as much (adjusting for inflation), and has 1/100th the clock frequency of the phone.
(Word to all the would be Osborne Haters out there… The guy who rocked the Osborne and Brick Phone likely got way more play than anyone with an iPhone ever did :p Just keep’n it real)
Humans have stripes and you just can’t see them
You’ve got a tiger inside! Or maybe a zebra. At the very least a well-behaved house cat. Apparently humans are hiding stripes in our skin, they are just invisible.
They’re called Blaschko Lines:
Blaschko Lines follow the same pattern on all people. They run down the arms and legs. They curve around the sides, like tiger stripes. On the chest and upper back they rise in a swirl before dipping down to meet in a deep “v” along the spine and the middle of the chest. They also run along the face above and below the eyes and over the ears, looking a little like painted-on glasses. These lines don’t correspond with any other system in the body. They don’t follow the lines of nerves, arteries, veins, muscles, or correspond with the endocrine system.
They are probably a remnant of how our cell growth is organized back when we are an embryo, with different “stripes” of cells growing along carefully delineated patterns. The stripes can become visible in genetic “chimeras”, people who have mixes of two genetic backgrounds (really two separate fertilizations) in their body. Here’s some Google image results if you’re so inclined.
That “chimera” mix may sound scary, but it is just a rare occurrence of fertilization. Ever know someone with different colored skin patches or different color eyes? They’re a chimera.

That means that Internet traffic destined for that country is going undelivered, and also that traffic coming from within it cannot get out to the world.”

My Sister is the coolest!!!
So, my little sister was asked to participate in a friends wedding. They want her to read scripture, which is very ironic considering she is about as religious as Copernicus. So the she sent me an email with the passage they asked her to read, and I just had to share the observations she made… ‘cause they cracked me up…. Our first reading comes from the Gospel Of John, Chapter 15 - verses 5 through 12 ” I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. This is to my Fathers glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. ” As the father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my fathers commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. This is the word of the Lord. (assembly responds: Thanks be to God) ok, so, number of references to: I/Me: 19 you: 14 love: 7 fruit:2 In conclusion, “I” am more significant than “You”, either of us is at least twice as important as “love”, and fruit is just irrelevant although quite delicious. Thanks be to You, Cole
The Simpsons Movie was Awesome!!! But this was by far my favorite part.. ;-)

There goes the Neighborhood!!!
There was a large explosion up at 42nd and Lex today.. They say a Transformer exploded…. Question is….. Was it a Decepticon or Autobot?
Looked and sounded ike a live volcano in Manhattan…
If you have a strong personal constitution, and have not seen the ZEITGEIST MOVIE, it is well worth your time… I think every american needs to see this film. Not preaching it as the truth. But, it’s probably closer to it than anything you’ve been fed by the powers that be.
**Warning this movie can be very disturbing**
I just met Rob and Corinne the other day at work. In a weird way, I was a little star struck.. Though I quickly realized that is the minds natural reaction to meeting someone you’ve only seen in video..
They are both super nice people, and I love their show..
I have to admit that Corinne is a looker… ;-)
Keep up the great work guys. Awesome Show!!
