Poems pt. 1

I've been really bogged down with school work, so instead of posting some random tech news, I'm gonna post some poems that I've found or written. This is one that I'd like to share, it's a personal favorite of mine, written by me.

Ode to Pancakes

Pancakes are delicious.
Banana walnut,
Chocolate chip.

Buttered, sugared,
Slathered with honey.
Are Paul Bunyan's breakfast.

Urban Terror and French Green Clay

UrT logo
I recently got hooked on a free, multi-platform FPS by the name of Urban Terror, or UrT. While this game is nothing like CoD: MWF2 or Medal of Honor: Black Ops, it is quite a bit of fun to play. It is free, so I would highly suggest trying it out.

Also, I've been using this natural unscented French green clay deodorant, and I have come to the following conclusion: This shit sucks. I hate it. There are some things that I may decide to go natural on, but deodorant is not one of them.

Black Friday = eew

Just going to throw this out there right away, I hate Black Friday. I didn't leave the house at all today, just to avoid the people. Black Friday has got to be my least favorite day of the year, but I suppose that's just my problem. I don't find it appealing to go to a store and get trampled just to save a few bucks. If I want something that bad, I'll just order it online, and get probably about the same price on it anyways.

I found this rather interesting. Adam Savage from Mythbusters recently made an appearance at #w00tstock in Seattle, and managed to get razor blades onto the plane. And not just your tiny little box-cutter knives. These are full 12 inch long blades for a foam cutter. Here's the video clip. Be forewarned, he does use language some may find offensive.

Anyways, I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, I know I did. I also found I'm not that great at blackjack. Oh well, no trips to Vegas for me.

Have a very happy Thanksgiving! I plan on updating with some real content tomorrow, but in the meantime, I'm gonna go eat a turkey dinner, and so should you!

Q: What do time lapse photography and Jonathan Swift have in common?

A: Absolutely nothing.

However, here's a link to a cool mod for a cheap digital camera that will turn it into a time-lapse MACHINE. No tedious timing needed.

Also, if you have never read Jonathan Swift before, then I strongly suggest you read A Modest Proposal For Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland from Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Public (Or just A Modest Proposal for short).

Hello everyone, this is xtw409, and I am here to share my interests, thoughts, and possibly a little wisdom (who am I kidding). While browsing the internet, I stumble across quite a few interesting tidbits of technology, code, and random information that I like to share. Rather then tell you what I plan on doing, I'm gonna go ahead and start doing it! Here are two things that I received in an email from a friend of mine. One is a video showing a particularly amusing bike lock, the other a website about dream journals. Here you all go!
