Many of you might not realize this, but RussThoughts(.com) has it's own CafePress store where I post some mocks of my ideas for merch. I bring this up for 2 reasons:

1. I thought of a new line of t-shirts that just say exactly what you're doing at the time on them. So when you go for a run for example, it says "HEY LOOK AT ME I'M RUNNING" or when you are drinking coffee, you wear one that says "HEY LOOK AT ME I'M DRINKING COFFEE"

2. I'm still bitter about my last design that they refused to publish on the store.

The other day I accidentally mistyped gmail and went to The good news is I've found the name for my first-born. The better news is that some Nigerian prince is going to give me half his fortune.

The phrase "user interface" should be shortened to simply "userface." Used in a sentence, one would say, "The userface was using users' faces to face users with other user's faces." This, of course, is much simpler than the current version, "The user interface was using users' interfaces to interface users with other user's interfaces."

The onion bagel is the jerk of the bagels. No matter what bagel I get, the only thing I think about is that faint taste of onion and how much of a douche the onion bagel is for ruining everything.

"The Timetraveler's Wife" is a pretty good love story up until the point you realize that ALL travelers show up naked. Congrats, you're now a pedo and I'm Chris Hansen. Why don't you have a seat over there?

Everyone has seen the guys on the street that scream at you about the end of the world. Here's my plan for the ultimate payback. Join their cause (or whatever) and make sure that when you die, the two of you end up in the same place. Once you both show up on the other side, put together some signs and start screaming about how the end of whatever that place is coming and that they need to repent before it's too late.

Oh man, what a burn.

The other day, my co-workers and I were talking about that new disaster movie "2012" and we got to thinking. When Y2K rolled around, people were making loads of cash on people's fears, and then nothing happened. Well we think people are going to try to do the same thing with 2012, and this time, we're not missing the boat.

So I present to you our new website, Are you 2012Approved?

Words of Wisdom: Always be mindful when writing or typing the word "count." This is even more important when using it as a noun. One missing letter and the sentence, "If it were up to me, we would have never kept that count as long as we did" turns into a real shocker.
Refilling my drink when I did not ask or was not asked really bothers me, to the point that when it happens, I lose a good 15 mins thinking about it. I've tried to figure out why, and I think it's because it assumes that me, as the drinker, doesn't know or understand how much I want to drink. This makes me inferior to you, as the person pouring the drink. It's not the inferior part that gets me, but the assuming part. Before placing food on someone's plate, you, as the host, should ask them if they would like some of what you're serving. I think the same should apply to my drinks. I'm sure this has been determined somewhere but google and wikipedia have both failed me.

Baseball Helmets: Why do they only cover one ear? I mean, I understand that only one side really needs the protection, but what's the disadvantage of covering the other ear?
