The Ballad of Steven Slater

Posted by: Dave In: Current Affairs|Travel

This song was inspired by a recent event on a Jet Blue airline where a male flight attendant got fed up with the actions of a passenger and cursed out the passenger over the intercom system and then activated the inflatable emergency slide and exited the plane. According to the New York Times article: Mr. […]

Hanging out in Taos, NM

Posted by: Dave In: New Mexico|Travel|Vacation

We’ve headed south for the weekend to Taos, NM.  Having fun walking around the old pueblo.  Google maps said it would take us 5 and a half hours to get here. I did it in 4. – Dave

A new two-wheeler

Posted by: Dave In: Colorado|Misc|Travel

I’ve always wanted a motorcycle. So, about two weeks after my knee surgery I visited the Harley Davidson dealership and picked out a red 2010 Road King.  I’ve been riding it for the past 3 weeks and love it. It’s pretty heavy (nearly 800lbs with a full tank of gas) but it handles extremely well […]

Gas Buddy

Posted by: Dave In: Business|Places|Travel|Web

No, this is not a pill or a new type of underwear, it is a website that tracks the price of gas by county across the United States.  Green is good.  Red is bad. Check out Gas Buddy here. – Dave

We’re in Austin

Posted by: Dave In: Science|Technology|Travel

We arrived in Austin in record time (around 2 hours and 15 minutes).  Would have been faster but we hit traffic leaving Houston. Headed out to find some dinner.  Looking forward to the Maker Faire tomorrow.  I’ll try to post some photos here tomorrow and Sunday. Have a good weekend, everyone. -Dave

Luckiest guy ever

Posted by: Dave In: Humor|Travel

This story made me laugh today at work.  I can almost hear the long, loud scream that must have come from this young man. PAW PAW, Mich. – Ben Carpenter got the ride of a lifetime when his electric wheelchair became lodged in the grille of a semitrailer and was accidentally pushed down a highway […]

Google launches Street View

Posted by: Dave In: Travel|Web

Google has recently launched a nifty Street View feature in their Google Maps product. This essentially gives the user a street level view of the surroundings. It’s very cool for finding landmarks if you are cartographically challenged and need a building or reference point to guide you. Go to google maps and click on the […]

  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)
