I hope so. It's so hard to find a good jet fighter for a decent price these days.


EDIT: Does the Netherlands even own jet fighters?

edit: spent too long researching got beaten to it

yes they do
they got 67 F-16s, and they got 2 F-45A's on order, you might be able to get a good deal on one, not even used!

i'm undecided whether i want a fighter or attack helicopter, fighters are nice especially if i can nab one of those F-45A for a good price
but i think i want an Apache more

The company I work for have a job opening in their office in London. I'm pretty sure I don't stand a chance of getting it, and idk where I would live if I did get it, but I'm applying anyway and will worry about details like that later.

Companies really should get in the habit of giving an idea how hot chilli products are. Eating some regular chilli peanuts shouldn't be painful for a light snack.

So I idly happened upon the Bioware store where they sell t-shirts and stuff. In the individual product description for the Tali shirt, it says "Please remember to self-sterilize before wearing."

That's right. If you buy that shirt, Bioware consider you to be such an irredeemable nerd that they hope you never have kids.

Almost forgot L! Agree 100%. However, my motivation is selfish. The environment has improved considerably over the past few months. I'm no longer woken to the smell of menthols and noise at 3:00! The yard view no longer looks like the Clampetts. I'm hoping this might attract a different type of neighbor. At the least my view is a little more tolerable. It also kills time. Ellie May is cracking me up.

Today is looking like a fairly easy day, I might even manage to get away early and go to donate blood.

Making a Pandora station from Shawn Colvin's "Sunny Came Home" does not result in a playlist of songs that are musically similar to "Sunny Came Home". It just plays a bunch of 90s music. :?

Question for people who know things: if I want to remap keys on my keyboard, what program should I download? I use mac leopard and a googling suggests "doublecommand" and it looks legit. Will it eat my computer?

(Edit: I want to switch the a key with the </> key, is all.)

I wonder why no R2-D2 shaped real robots are in use now. As in, for utility purposes like carrying around tools and household items, and responding to voice control and automatically navigating based on a map of its surroundings. The cylindrical shape seems optimal for movement and storage, it just uses normal wheels (although some sort of omnidirectional one would seem even better), you can have it recharge at a charging station when it runs out, and you can just slot your phone on it to let it accept voice commands as well as getting you your phone when someone messages or calls you-
