Off-Topic Tuesday: The Return

Completely off-topic, and completely disorganized. It’s been a long week (already)…

- I’m no genius, but I’ve been thinking about a “forever stamp” for a while now. Canada and the U.K. beat us to it, but I’m glad we’re on the bandwagon. It’s actually going to be pretty sad when the Post Office is filled with little old ladies trying to hoard forever stamps the day before a price increase.

- It’s amazing to me how many people refuse to mix cereals. Don’t compare it to those 11-year-olds who get a little bit of each drink from the “fountain” dispensers at Burger King, McDonalds, etc. That’s just gross. Mixing cereals can produce tasty, healthy choices: Cheerios and Rice Krispies, for example. Maybe add some Raisin Bran in there, if you want some sugar. Please try it – I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

- Shout out to my girlfriend for noticing this: In the new DirecTV commercial with Doc Brown talking about how he forgot to tell Marty about DirecTV’s HD capabilities, there is a serious error. The Doc speaking is the “1955 Doc.” He wouldn’t have known anything about DirecTV (then again, same thing goes for the “1985 Doc”). Disappointing.

- Speaking of Back to the Future, if I’m channel surfing and one of the following movies is on, there’s a 99.3% chance that I’m watching it:
Wedding Crashers
The Karate Kid
Back to the Future
The Usual Suspects
The 40-Year-Old Virgin
The Shawshank Redemption
It’s quite common that at least two of these are on at the same time. Then it becomes a difficult decision.
