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.

president obama says ‘six’ in chinese

i’d much rather trust someone as chill as him than someone who gives the shocker on camera. Although, after further research, it turns out that the ‘shaka’ has different interpretations than just ‘hang loose’:

  • in britain and northern europe, the symbol is used as a signal for owners of older model volkswagen vans when passing on roads
  • in new zealand, it signifies smoking meth in a glass pipe
  • in india and venezuela, it symbolizes sexual intercourse

be careful who you give hang loose hand sign to because you might unwittingly be inviting six vw-owning chinese people to hit the meth pipe with you. i mean, just theoretically.
