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.

-> there’s a whole subculture of people looking for faults in movies. this is both interesting and creepy that people work hard to document and share this [imdb]

-> there is a mathematical equation that describes how surnames are moving slowly towards extinction. did you know that vietnam has only about 100 surnames, with 60% having the top three surnames? no wonder they are so ugly [wikipedia]
