The invisible bike helmet.

http://www.core77.com/blog/transportation/the_invisible_bike_helmet_is_available_now_23195.asp (skip to about 2:30)

I guarantee you every kid under 13 will be required to wear one of these even if just walking out in public. I give it 10 years tops. Over-protective coddling garbage.

"How to get pregnant."

I mean, look, I would never suggest the internet be censored but should an article like this really exist? If you're so goddamn stupid you have to go online to figure out how to get knocked up maybe you shouldn't procreate. Just putting that out there.

I'm already pissed at the part when the family is all together eating dinner (after I probably return all the tickets, re-purchase all the tickets with better schedules/flight times) and my sister pulls off a "see wasn't it all worth it?" speech.

Edit: The wife just called and I had to explain the situation and about the "plans" for next month. She coolly just hung up the phone. Gawd this weekend's trip is most likely ruined. facepalm.gif

This rather reminds me of some members of my family. I would Falcon Punch your sister if she does that speech. I think I have shared how my family would routinely slag me for moving to the US, my economic views, and then expect me to pick up all cheques? I grew tired and told one of my b-in-laws (the worse offender) I did not want to insult him by paying for his meal with US dollars that he so despises, tossed some cash down to cover mine, and walked away? A couple people actually had to ask me to cover them as they did not have the funds/credit to pay and had just assumed I would pick up the tab.

So apparently this happened one street over from my gf's house this morning.

Also my city has decided that since a couple hundred people in the huge metropolis in which I live have gotten the west nile virus, they need to drop poison on us from airplanes. Good times.

fell on my ass rushing out to my car to get it out of the street during a FUCKING HEAVY ASSED HAIL STORM!!!

apparently the half inch to whole inch diameter ice balls all accumulated on my side of the street and the porch was just a mess of ice marbles for me to roll/slip on.

it was like 85ºF outside an hour ago! I even took the puppy out for a walk and BOOM - RAIN/HAIL/RAIN/HAIL.

- it was raining torrentially one hour prior. I just got back from Trader Joes and a woman ahead of me in a civic drove into a huge puddle in the middle of the road and flooded her engine and was stranded.... then another driver promptly drove into the puddle from the other side and got stranded as well.

so apparently there's torrential rain causing floods here in Williamsburg and queens, followed by bright hot humid sunshine then torrential rain + HAIL.

whats the weather in your neck of the woods?

A lot of it has been babble that seems connected to her childhood ("Tell Mom I'm sorry, I didn't mean to make her angry!" and the like) but interspersed have been touching comments, always with a thin smile, like "Hi Michael, I love you."
This is the first time I've been around a dying relative. I just hope she passes on soon so that the ordeal is over, mostly for her sake but also for ours. It's beyond agonizing.

It seems like when you get near the end things go downhill extremely fast. Just last year we were all out to dinner laughing drink wine and now this.

Condolences to you both, gentlemen.
