Fuck, its Memorial Day again. Normally I love Memorial Day, it is the beginning of summer and I look forward to the hot summer nights and sultry days. This year I know in my heart Labor Day is going to get here and it will be another wasted summer. I am going back to bed, someone wake me up for Comic Con.

With the Green Lantern movie coming up I thought maybe I should attend the movie in my favorite costume, putting on my Green Lantern T-shirt and matching ring and become the Green Lantern of Space Sector 3600, the last sector, known as the “SLACKER SECTOR”. The only question is, which ring should I wear.
Today on XKCD the alt text says that if you click the first hyperlink on any page in wikipedia that is not in parentheses or in italics, and repeat that process, you will eventually end up at Philosophy. I tried this out and it actually works most of the time. I did find occasionally I would end up in a loop, for instance, the first such link on San Francisco Bay Area is San Francisco Bay and the first link on that page points back to San Francisco Bay Area.
Something is up with comments, I am not sure what it is. I will look into this as soon as I have some time.
I read The 10 Best Star Trek Episodes article at The Best Article Everyday with some reservations, this sort of thing is way too subjective and many a forum flame wars have been fought over this subject. I do not necessarily agree with all their choices, some of them seem to be stretching it to include one from every series (except Enterprise). However, it is a good try, there are several excellent choices and I 100% agree that Balance of Terror is probably the single best all time episode of Star Trek.
I am not going to come right out and say they are criminals or thieves, I will leave that to others. I knew Creede Lambard when he was a disc jockey at the radio station in Laurel Montana, I played D&D with him for several years. I only met his wife Sharleen a few times. Around 1983 they left Montana to move to Austin Texas for jobs with Steve Jackson Games. Shortly after they left, there was a rumor going around they had cleaned out the bank account to TreasueCon, the small genre convention they were helping to organize. A few years later Steve Jackson Games nearly went under due to poor management and theft of company assets by an unnamed senior staff member. Shortly before the incident became public, Sharleen was the President of company and running its day to day operations. Shortly after the incident, Creede and Sharleen relocated to Seattle Washington. So while I can not prove they were actually guilty of anything, I can say truthfully, I was not surprised to read The Family that Preys Together, in the Seattle Weekly, where once again, they seem to be implicated in wrong doing.
This fellow made a video of himself every year for 35 years, this year he strung them together to make this video showing him aging in reverse. This is one of those things I wish I had thought of.
