When I went to the gym at lunch today (2-3 times a week is my normal gym routine), the place was crawling with overweight, overzealous people! It was like New Year's Resolutions on steroids or something! I can't wait for the gym to get back to normal again… that should be in 2 weeks I guess.
So yesterday I sit down in a great little sushi restaurant I found last fall (Aoki) in the Theater district for a late lunch. So I am reading a few pages on my iphone while enjoying my sushi, the spicy shrimp rolls are amazing, while trying to ignore the family of four 3 tables over. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind people enjoying themselves but these people were really loud. They were also really big. They ranged from the 400+ pound Dad down to the 300 pound daughter. After an especially loud outburst which brought my concentration out of my book, I watched as one of the daughters rolled up on one leg and proceeded to rip a rather loud long fart. I was kind of astounded that someone would actually do that in a restaurant and expected some parental intervention. WRONG!!! They all laughed even louder. I guess Times Square attracts all kinds of people (inbred trailer trash included)!
The worst thing ever developed in the United States has to be the philips screw. It is THE worst screw design ever. Why can’t we just settle on the Robertson screw design and stop swearing at stripped screws!!!!!
