Thuggery!

I have a car I've been working on for months to get ready to sell - months! I just put new tires on it, and was simply had to take it to the detailer. I went behind my office to get the vehicle... and a thug had dropped a rock through the right side passenger window.

WHY? The car was EMPTY!

Hobbies

You can learn a lot about someone by their hobbies. My dad's hobbies, for example, are completely different on work days than non-work days. On non-work days, he will sit in his chair and read, or he will simply watch TV. On work days, however, he will drive as far as humanly possible to eat somewhere and normally spend 2-3 hours between driving and eating.

My main hobby is reading, but lately, I've renewed my interest in PC Gaming. My interest in going to the gym is coming back too... but that is something I'll have to make myself do :p

I35W Bridge Collapse

We have a lot to be thankful for in this tragedy - THANK GOD that the school bus of students on the bridge didn't suffer any fatalities.

I got a call from Scottland asking how the country was doing, and I couldn't help but be amazed. Many news anchors were calling this "the worst tragedy" they've ever seen... despite having lived through 9/11. Personally, I'm thankful that my cousin in dental school at the U of M chose a different route to get home last night and left earlier than usual. I'm thankful that no Hazmat's were being transported on the bridge at the time of the collapse... the list goes on and on.

When I lived in the Twin Cities, I used this bridge every day to and from. It's kind of shocking that this happened. I've seen the bridge gridlocked, fully loaded, at a standstill. I just can't believe it "gave in" on its own. My gut instinct, despite Homeland Security's reassurances to the nation is that someone screwed up something on purpose on that bridge.
