Discontinued...

Kind of a fitting word for the on going theme as of late.

In a nut shell here are the high points. My company is dissolving its presents in the Midwest and I have been offered an opportunity to move to the east coast to continue with the company.

Currently this opportunity is being mulled over.

As a good planner I am beginning to activate plan B which is look else where here in the Twin Cities for a new career.

This process is going to put me at direct odds with this blog since I actually would like to give myself a shot at gainful employment..lol

With this said this blog will be going private beginning this Friday as my search for the new funding source of Brian Inc. goes into high gear.

What else is new?

Loving: Phoenix - Liztomania (I am not sure there is a catchier song out right now)

Loved: Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann

Loved: Up in the Air for some reason this movie hit home with the last few months.

Yawn: New Moon - Yeah I know

Ok: The Informant - Ok yes I can see the relation to me and stay tuned for a post on this under my new private label.

Ok: My Best Friends Girl - Some classic dialog in this movie between Alec Baldwin and Dane Cook was pretty good for this Genre that I tend to stay the hell out of.

Well that is it in a nut shell. I would like to employ some of you talented Googlers over the next week to help me find out where my Cyber risks are for potential new recruiters.

PS Know of any potential leads here in the Twin Cities give me a shout

Do As I Say

It always amuses me that the government can break up a business deal do to the potential monopolistic outcome of that business deal and then turn around reaffirm the municipal rights of the government to be the only players able to open liquor stores in a county.

Spring Loaded

I was watching a Citizens watch commercial yesterday and I was in awe by it. You know the one where Eli Manning says nothing stops his Citizen watch.

Never needs a battery.

Never needs a wind.

Works off of the kinetic energy in the movement of the arm.

Perpetual motion.

As the Arm moves it stores energy in a series of springs that in turn turn gears and power the hands forward with exact precision.

Why couldn't a similar concept work with a car engine? As the wheels turn it stores energy in a spring that in turn releases energy and spins the wheels?

Going Green

I am not sure if this is a new invention or not since most of these pieces already exist just not in combination with one another.

Bong recharger.

It is possible (so I have heard) to fit a small turbine inside of a bong so that as the exhaust is suced out by the user the turbine spins and chanrges a battery or cell phone. Not saying it is the most practical way to go green but at least it shows that creating and conserving energy can be fun and exciting.

Hands Free

I hate it when news stations do segments when they put teenagers in a car and have them go through a slalom course of orange cones at 40 miles an hour while texting to show the dangers of texting when driving.

When they enevitably hit a cone they say that could have been someone child. Well any person that saw actual kids running around in the street and you had to weave around them you would put your phone down.

When is the last time you actually did the slalom course in your car. If you saw one coming (As you normally would see a turn in the road)you would probably put your phone down.

While I agree that it is dangerous to take your eyes off the road to do anything.

The statistic of 90% of teens failed the obstacle course as proof that texting while driving is meaningless.

Biological Warfare

Combination #97166 that should never be consumed together. Bunch of Asparagus and a pot of coffee. My pee smelled worse then any fart or dump I have ever taken.

Consider yourself warned.

God's Country

Where exactly is Gods country? What is the definition? Where is it not? Is he not omnipresent? I heard this over the weekend while overlooking a farm and I wondered if the person had any idea that farms bastardize the land just like buildings do?

Joe the Public Figure

When does a person cross the line from being a citizen with the right to privacy to being a public figure with no expectation of the right to privacy?

Our small little microcosm of the world has a few scandals going on with business men. Denny Hecker and Tom Petters.

There are some that say they have no right to privacy because they are the public figures of their respective companies.

But doesn't that beg the question if any one who works in retail as a public figure for a company then has their right to privacy waived?

Or is there a rank? Amount of times on TV? Number of quotes? Words published? Money earned that waives your right to privacy?

War on ________ !

Today Minneapolis declared a war on potholes.

I wonder if this term describes the limitations of our lexicon or the limitations of our species?

Can we really only rally to solve big problems if we are in the mind set of violence?

Or do we just lack the fundemental words to describe people coming together to fix a problem?

Nutrition Challenge March 2010 - No Corn By-Products

Harder then you would think for the whole month of March the only corn you can eat is Corn raw or steamed as a vegetable.

In an effort to be more health conscience I am doing mini-food challenges with myself. This month is no corn by products. No chips, no sodas not pre-packages processed foods. It kind of makes going to the grocery store exhausting.

Discrimination

You can get a dui on a bike.

Why can't you get a dui in a wheel chair?
