I always hang on as long as I can to avoid using an airplane’s bathroom, but today nature won and I made the long, awkward trip to the back of the plane. Now, admittedly, I am not the smallest human on the planet, but there was barely room to get the door shut. The ceiling came up from the rear towards me at an angle, so there was no room to stand at all.
The whole process was embarrassing and I wondered what had more room; the airplane bathroom or a coffin. I vote coffin. I’ve never been in one but I know it looks like the person is fully stretched out instead of ducking their head, bending at the knees, and hunching their back like some kind of ogre, so the coffin definitely looks more spacious to me.
I now officially call B.S. on every “mile high” club story I’ve ever heard about (except the ones about dwarfs, as they may be the only folks that could pull this off, and even then it would be a little tight), but the rest of the stories are lies.
I’ve always been a fan of Sheryl Crow’s music, but I had to read this article twice to make sure it wasn’t some kind of joke. She is coming out with a detachable “dining sleeve” for wiping your mouth to help reduce the amount of paper napkins used.
“The sleeve is detachable and can be replaced with another “dining sleeve” after the diner has used it to wipe their mouth.”
She’d also like us to use less toilet paper, which is admirable, but you have to wonder if that one will gain much traction.
Although I don’t always post daily, I do make it a point to go through any of the things I read and tag them for my Google Shared Items blog. If you look over to the sidebar, you’ll see an area called Things I’m Reading. That shows you the 5 latest articles I’ve tagged, but if you click on the Read More link you’ll go directly to the Shared Items blog, aka, the link blog.
Just another way to stay current without posting. The same happens with my Flickr feed.
I just posted about how I finally got White A Milk handling WordPress Widgets. Everything was fine. Two days later out comes iTheme and I had to check it out. Look at it, it’s beautiful. I tested it on Safari/OSX, Firefox/OSX, and IE7/WindowsXP and everything looked correct, so I’ll see how long I can stick with this them before moving on as well.
Damn you iTheme, I had everything perfect.
Is anyone really surprised that Apple has pushed back the release date of OS X Leopard to October? Rumor sites have been saying for a while that the releases they have received were still pretty buggy and that they expected Apple to miss the “end of Spring” release date that Steve Jobs announced. This doesn’t bother me a bit, as I would rather see a stable OS than a bug-ridden one that needs followed up with a couple quick patches. On the surface Leopard doesn’t really look to offer all that much different from Tiger, but I guess we’ll see what the “top secret features” are when it finally ships, but Time Machine isn’t enough to pull the $129 upgrade fee from me this time.
Don’t kid yourselves, writing operating systems is not an easy thing. Timelines slip, priorities happen, things change. I hope all the Vista bashers out there remember how they beat the hell out of Microsoft for Vista’s release date slipping. What comes around goes around and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of web sites out there beating the hell out of Apple for letting Leopard’s release date slip.
I sure hope the iPhone is worth it.
I have always been a fan of the minimal White As Milk WordPress theme, but I also wanted the ability to have sidebar widgets.Â I finally got around to figuring out how to have my cake and eat it to, so I modified the White As Milk them with only 7 lines of code from this site and now White As Milk is exactly what I want – it now supports Widgets.
Anything missing?Â Oh yeah, content!Â If only I had worthwhile content.
I put in the time.Â I watched the entire thing.Â I’m just missing the whole time travel thing.Â They were always two years apart, so how in the world did they end up in the same time?Â I realize that by him not getting hit by the bus the future would change, but they should still be two years apart!Â Wouldn’t he need to gain two years or her relive two years?
If anyone actually understands what they were thinking with that ending, please let me know via the Comments.
