On the way out “from”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/07/06/3563/ “State”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/07/06/3555/ “College”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/07/07/3582/ I made a stop at a vending machine — it beckoned to me as the siren call of all vending machines, particularly ones in unfamiliar places, do. The Mallo Cup was good, but it was only a couple weeks ago that I tried it so it definitely passes […]

Several of us had a near-death experience Sunday, but I wanted you all to know that we’re just fine and explain what happened. Becky, Sandy and I decided to go see the new Batman movie — awesowe, btw — and we got a call from Mike and Kelly that they were going to the same […]

Breakfast Becky is known for extolling the importance and beneficial nature of breakfast. While we’ve been in State College she hasn’t been enjoying her favorite breakfast, so I’m sure that when we return one of the first sounds I’ll get to hear is our blender blending. This is how it starts (bottom-to-top): beets, mangoes, ice, […]

Due to some weird bug with the SDHC card interfacing to my “new camera”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/04/26/3227/, I thought this footage was lost but I fiddled some more and it suddenly appeared yesterday. This is unedited (and way dark — it was 12:25am) footage I took on May 15th while the storm was raging. You can’t really see […]

There were several “only in New York” moments (like the tiny trained cat and dog show off Times Square) but the only one I caught on video was this dude in a suit playing his didgeridoo sitting in a barred park. ====

Consider this a public (in so many ways) bookmark. I heard the tail end of “this story”:http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=19231906 on NPR a while back.

So …. uh …. apparently, in 1973, Chairman Mao offered 10 million of his country’s women to Kissinger.  They were a problem, see, because they were having too many babies, making China poor.  Damn kids kept taking up all the resources.  Kissinger: “we’ll think about it.”
