#IShouldGetAMedalFor Hanging Around

When you are really good at something, you should stick with it.


That’s right.  I hang around a lot, all the time.

1.  In my car. Waiting for my morning coffee.

2.  On the phone.  Waiting for my favorite government agency to get to my call.

3.  By the bathroom of the baseball stadium.  Waiting for a stall.

4.  And my personal favorite, in front of the television.  Waiting  for my chance to pick a show.

#BrainstormE – Got Engine?

When you get the feeling that you forgot something but cannot remember what it is.


You just pored your heart and soul into a new, awesome technological thing like a futuristic automobile.  You slaved day and night and sometimes weekends to get it right.

Then it hits you.

Crap!  We forgot the engine!!!

Do we do electric, gas or hybrid?

Do we even have room for an engine?

This could get exciting.

Climate Change Contest – Pick Door #1 or Door #2

Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a note on Facebook on Monday.


He made a very good point about climate change and renewable energy: It really doesn’t matter what you believe.  Here is what he said.

There are two doors. Behind Door Number One is a completely sealed room, with a regular, gasoline-fueled car. Behind Door Number Two is an identical, completely sealed room, with an electric car. Both engines are running full blast.

I want you to pick a door to open, and enter the room and shut the door behind you. You have to stay in the room you choose for one hour. You cannot turn off the engine. You do not get a gas mask.

I’m guessing you chose the Door Number Two, with the electric car, right? Door number one is a fatal choice – who would ever want to breathe those fumes?

It’s a strong point, but even more importantly, it’s a bipartisan point.

Here is the real deal.  You pick a door and we agree to never argue about climate change again. Agreed?

First Google Cars Will Be Free

That’s right!  How about a free car?  But how is that possible?


Remember when newspaper websites were free in the beginning?

That is because of all the advertisements.

With the Google Car you will have lots of time to see – ads.  And these ads will be displayed non-stop in the virtual reality space right in front of you.

The good news is this means the end of all those ugly billboards! You know like the 300 foot high ones between Atlanta and Macon, Georgia.

Finally our civilization has moved beyond billboards!

Google Gadget Goes Gilligan

I have entered the USA Today Caption Contest many times but forgot to post my June one.


Sound familiar?  The words follow the Gilligan’s Island theme song.
