I have a headache; it sure feels like a caffeine headache. But I won’t take any as I need to sleep. :)

Workout notes Easy day: 2200 yard swim (lots of drill, mixed strokes, etc.) and that was it. I am planning on doing something prior tomorrow’s graduation exercises which I was roped into going to.

Oh no…what if all we get out of addressing climate change is a…better world?

Note: this was an argument that even Senator McCain made. See about 3:20 into it:

Confused by conflicting polls? Perhaps it is because they ask the wrong questions.

Some liberals: launch a primary challenge against President Obama?
People like myself: you’ve got to be kidding me.

This guy hates the Mummer’s Parade, I think:

When every vapid, overweight decaying blob in South Philly, who spends the other 7/8 of their year voting Republican, bitching about gay marriage and enthusiastically buying pickup trucks they will never need gathers to stick peacock feathers up their ass and practice choreographed group dance moves to the smooth tunes of the Village People, the dramatic irony has surely not escaped my grasp. More stunning still, is that the the incidence of obesity, diabetes, and general stench of impending death is not only somehow higher than it was when I passed this crowd last year, but is also impressive by even American standards. Watching a crowd of XXL sweat suit clad percentage points chug bud light (it’s ok, it’s low carb now!) at 10:30 am on a Sunday morning while talking about their new Camaro is a humbling sight for even the strongest of resolves.

I admit that I don’t know anything about this parade but I enjoy a good rant. :)
