Served my first jury duty today. Well, I guess I shouldn't say that I served it, because I didn't really serve anything. I showed up at 7am, sat around for five hours, went to lunch, sat around another three hours, and then got excused because they didn't need me. Want my advice if you're summoned? Bring a fucking book. But hey, after I deduct the cost of lunch, I made five bucks for my eight hours of sitting! Thanks, Tampa!

For Real, Yo

It's been a joke for a little while now that "extreme" has become so overused (and subverted by poser advertising execs) that it has actually come to mean the opposite of its vernacular meaning. Go »

Is anyone interested in a fantasy league for the summer? If we get at least three people besides me, I'll start one. Go »
