my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

leon powe owns the lakers

game 2 of the nba finals were tonight and a certain bay area high school and college basketball star further extended the misery of la lakers fans everywhere. not only do lakers fans have to deal with kobe’s crybaby antics and yellow/purple team colors, but now they had this former oakland tech and cal bears stud to contend with. it’s nice to see him succeed considering his upbringing. you can read more about it on wikipedia.

leon kinda looks like me on the little tikes hoop.

we should have taxed gas more when it used to be cheap to make people be more economical and make our cars more efficient. then we could have taken that tax money and spent it on ourselves instead of making oil companies and the middle easterners adsurdly rich [washington post]
