Comet Holmes

Comet Holmes Originally uploaded by Dan Coulter. Tonight, Julie and I went out to see Comet Holmes (the brightest comet in 10 years). It’s grown 40,000 times brighter in the last 6 days and looks amazing. To the naked eye, it looks like a fuzzy star off the side of the Perseus constellation. Thankfully, I […]

Internet Celebrities

Tomorrow, Julie and I will, in all likelihood, be appearing on Len’s podcast, Jawbone Radio. Around 9PM EDT, you should be able to watch the show being taped at Len’s Ustream page. We’ll be in Cleveland, OH for the rest of the week and will post plenty of pictures of the world’s largest rubber stamp […]

Treasures on an Answering Machine

About two and a half years ago, I unplugged my answering machine because I stopped having a land-line phone.   Since moving into our new house (and getting a land-line for DSL), we’ve gotten numerous telemarketer calls.  I hooked up my old answering machine and found three messages on its non-volatile digital memory.  They are […]

Criminal Mastermind of the Year

I’ll let the original article speak for itself: Just as the Citizen Bank branch opened Saturday morning, a man walked in with leafy boughs duct-taped to his head and torso, and robbed the place. “He really went out on a limb,” police Sgt. Ernie Goodno said Sunday. Police said the leafy man didn’t saying anything […]
