Patty-Cake Cats (or Pat-a-cake for you purists)…

Hilarious. Plain and simple.

This is probably the first time I’ve been impressed by a cat… ever. The only other times that cats are enjoyable is when they act like dogs. Enough said.

Time Magazine: The Worst “Worst Invention” List

Time magazine recently released a list of the “Top 50 Worst Inventions” of all time.  Their article should have made the list!  Apparently the Segway Human Transporter is the worst invention EVER (even worst than the Ford Pinto and Hydrogen Blimps — both of which are on the list).  According to Time, Smell-o-Vision is reasonably as bad as Asbestos!  Recently the guys over at the Relevant Magazine Podcast (Jesse Carey, Josh Loveless, Ryan Hamm, and Chad Michael Snavely) made fun of Time’s “lazy editorial work.”  I uploaded a four and a half minute audio sample of their hilarious banter.  Give it a listen!

I Don’t Think We Know Each Other That Well…

How well do you have to know someone to ask them to help you move?  I mean, do you really want some casual acquaintance carrying your underwear drawer or helping you sort through your comic book collection?

At what point is it appropriate to ask someone when they plan on having kids?  This is a question that my wife and I are asked often.  I usually respond by asking the inquirer when they are planning on having kids.  If they have the Duggar-syndrome, I ask them when they are going to stop having kids or just inform them that they have enough children for the both of us.

Social conventions are just weird.  For example, when you randomly talk to someone that you’ve never met before (maybe at a restaurant or in an elevator) and you say, “How’s it going?”  What do you do when they start unloading all of their baggage?  It seems appropriate to be kind and gracious but it’s still awkward.

My only solution is to find people that you can really get to know well.  Share your life with those people.  Then it won’t feel awkward when they ask you to help them move, share their problems with you, or question you about your reproductive plans!

Owl City = Awesome

“Owl City,” the one-man synth pop band is officially amazing.  His sound is catchy, cool, and clean.  His lyrics are full of aquatic puns.  He loves Jesus but isn’t preachy.  Here is an article on the man, the myth, the legend.

Another reason “Owl City” is amazing?  Unrivaled facebook status updates!  Some of my favorites include:

Never buy a car you can’t push.

I’m going to be discussing global warming next week.  Wear shorts.  It’s quite a heated topic.

I was going to jump off my house into a bucket of ice but I got cold feet.

I once directed a high school play about fishing.  It had a great cast.

It’s always darkest before dawn.  So if you’re going to steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to do it.

To me, boxing is like ballet, except there’s no music, no choreography, and the dancers punch each other in the face.
