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.

friday fremont fornication links

for about 60 minutes, isaac and i thought of team names for marcos’ upcoming t-ball team. he’s currently on the tigers, like the major league team from detroit. it would be nice if we can pick our own names for the team based on the composition of the kids – fremont fartbags, fremont failures or fremont phreakshow might be more appropriate? got any suggestions? send them to me.

westboro church FTL

westboro baptist church in topeka, kansas came out to san francisco to spread their hate towards gay folks and some of our own bay area natives caught wind of this and staged a counter-protest of their own. they made some humorous signs and mixed in with the protestors. this was enough to confuse the passers-by and neutralize the demonstration. the wbc folks left the scene quickly after that, with their heads hanging in defeat.

i think there are more gay people in san francisco than the entire population of topeka (pop. 122,000). maybe instead of flying these protestors around the country, why not give it back to some needy groups in their own home state?

it seems very self-serving to interpret the bible in their own way. why don’t they protest some of the other things that are banned in the book of leviticus, such as bowl cuts, tattoos, and eating shellfish? [bspcn.com]
