This blog has never had a large viewership or whatever you all it, and I’m used to only getting a handful of comments, but it feels dead around here as of late. I may have to write a controversial opinion about something just to rile things up, like, there should be no drinking age and the easy access to travel long distances in a relatively short amount of time has only made society worst.
Did men in biblical times wear underwear? No undergarments, but underwear.
The older I get, the faster my nails grow.
We don’t wash our sheets over a set schedule or period of time. It’s one of those things where we just kinda think, yeah, it’s about that time. I’m also bad at using the same towel for too long.
I can’t relate to anyone who talks about working out and achieving a runner’s high, but I certainly can relate to anyone about over-eating and getting the meat sweats. And therein lies the problem with my overall health.
Even if I were skinny, I’d avoid wearing skinny jeans on principle alone.
My taste for comedy is probably different than most, but I did get a kick out of this line from ‘Angie Tribeca’, “What brings you to Carl Jr’s Junior High?”
I don’t get the food truck craze. I can’t recall eating anything from a food truck that’s memorable.
Tesla claims the tiles do not degrade over time like asphalt or concrete. “Solar Roof is the most durable roof available and the glass itself will come with a warranty for the lifetime of your house, or infinity, whichever comes first,” the company says.
The tiles themselves are made with tempered glass to protect the underlying panels from damage. They’re also printed a special way so that the solar panels aren’t visible from the road — they supposedly look opaque enough to be mistaken for traditional roofing tiles unless you’re looking almost straight down on them.
Trump Advisor, “Mr. President, with the firing of the Comey and all the smoke in the air about Russian interference with our election, I advise you to steer clear of anything remotely associated with Nixon.”
President Trump, “That’s fabulous advice. You are the best at what you do. Tremendous. Thank you . . . Hey, Henry! About time you got here, sit your 93-year-old self right over here.” Trump has unscheduled meeting with Kissinger
I found this Gizmodo article about how they tricked a select group of 15 Trump officials to click a link in an email from a fake email account three weeks ago interesting and just a bit concerning. Below is a bastardized summary, for true context, check out the article.
We sent them an email that mimicked an invitation to view a spreadsheet in Google Docs. The emails came from the address firstname.lastname@example.org, but the sender name each one displayed was that of someone who might plausibly email the recipient, such as a colleague, friend, or family member.
Some of the Trump Administration people completely ignored our email, the right move. But it appears that more than half the recipients clicked the link: Eight different unique devices visited the site, one of them multiple times. There’s no way to tell for sure if the recipients themselves did all the clicking (as opposed to, say, an IT specialist they’d forwarded it to), but seven of the connections occurred within 10 minutes of the emails being sent.
Two of the people we reached—informal presidential advisor Newt Gingrich and FBI director James Comey—replied to the emails they’d gotten, apparently taking the sender’s identity at face value. Comey, apparently believing that he was writing to his friend, Lawfareblog.com editor-in-chief Ben Wittes, wrote: “Don’t want to open without care. What is it?” And Gingrich, apparently under the impression he was responding to an email from his wife, Callista, wrote: “What is this?”
