So, currently, right outside my window is a Coke truck. It tried to exit the parking lot, and bottomed out. It's stuck on the exit ramp. Apparently, it's been there for an hour. There's a another big truck chained to it trying to pull it free. It's not having much success so far. This might take a while.

There's all these people walking around staring at the truck, trying to figure out what to do. Nobody looks particularly happy. There's even a guy taking pictures of the whole thing. I'm not sure why. For posterity, perhaps? Or for insurance purposes?

It's quite a sight. Glad I don't have to pay admission. :)

Meanwhile, have a Coke on me!

I find this rumor much more amusing than I probably should. I don't believe it for a second, but if it turns out to be true, well, you heard it here first.

For non-Texans, Rick Perry was Bush's lieutenant governor who succeeded him as govenor of Texas.

One of the guys behind Brunching Shuttlecock humor site now appears to be writing for Wired.

Weird, I always thought Lore Sjöberg was a fake name.

Sign on my way to work.

I've always believed that you should walk a mile in somebody else's shoes before you judge them. So, this morning, I decided to drive to work without using my turn signals. I wanted to know what it was like, if I felt stronger, more powerful, delighting in my disregard of the feelings of others, spurning the very law that had given me the right to drive in the first place. **Evil laugh**

I didn't. I just kind of felt stupid and careless. I couldn't even follow through with it the entire drive to work. When I entered the exit lane, there was someone directly behind me, so I used my turn signal. And when I made a sharp right into my office complex, I used my turn signal so someone wouldn't rear-end me.

I don't think I'll try this experiment again. And now that I've tried it, I can feel better about calling all those people who don't use their turn signal stupid twits.
