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.

somethin about to go down

something about to go down

A married couple went to the hospital to have their baby delivered.

Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother’s labor pain to the father. He asked if they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favor of it.

The doctor set the knob to 10 percent for starters, explaining that even 10 percent was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before. But as the labor progressed, the husband felt fine, so he asked the doctor to go ahead and bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20 percent pain transfer. The husband was still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husband’s blood pressure and pulse and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this, they decided to try for 50 percent. The husband continued to feel quite well. Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, he encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic.

When they arrived home, the postman was dead on their porch.

why is bill neukom out?

why is bill neukom out as the giants managing general partner? there’s lots of stories out there but, from what little i know, it seemed he was doing an okay job. it’s not like he was a huge part of the giants world series win last year, but i would have thought he did, and would have continued doing, a good job running the team from an operational point of view. again, i don’t think any of us know the full reason why, and we probably never will, but it just seemed like the wrong move at the wrong time. why do this in the middle of the season? if the partners were unhappy with how he’s doing, they should have waited until the end of the season to not shake things up to not distract the team or the fans at the end of the season.

he was part of microsoft for a long time, so you know he’s got the business smarts to run the company. he has also been a lifelong giants fan, so that’s gotta count for something. that by itself doesn’t automatically qualify him to be the head of the giants, you know he has the passion to make the giants better and he won’t treat it as just a numbers game.

i am disappointed on how things went down. let’s hope the giants can put some wins together at the end of the season here and catch up to the diamondbacks.

here’s bill in a better mood from last year’s parade:

i’m sure they will…

rick perry got 2 A’s in college

who knows if this is true, but it’s funny nonetheless to see rick perry’s college transcript.

he got a C in Public Speaking, History of the US, and Physical Education. he also got a D in Principals of Economics. yeah, this is the guy I want leading our country – someone lazy and scared to speak publicly about our past. let’s not mention what he would do fix that deficit of ours.

“Ladies and gentlemen, that transcript is not accurate! there was another rick perry at texas a&m that year”. Liar.

fast food actuals

i think we all know this already, but i like the research put into this kind of stuff.
