le blargh : deux

 

reading material
all links open in a new window

I may be on vacation, but I’m always reading. All my posts during my time off will be mainly reading links. If you get email notification of my posts, that will be off while I’m out — so just pop in on the blargh from time to time if you want to procrastinate. 🙂

Is There a Limit to How Tall Buildings Can Get?
“But there has to be some sort of end point, some highest possible height that a building can reach. There will eventually be a world’s tallest building that is unbeatably the tallest, because there has to be an upper limit. Right?”
What’s a $4,000 Suit Worth?
“How can you not get rich selling $4,000 suits?”

I once stopped going to a tournament because of the tournament director. I think he generally meant well, but dammit, he is One Dumb Dude. For example, he said I was not supposed to be annoyed at losing because “girls are only supposed to play [pool] for fun”. I beat him in his own tournament and never returned.

I ran into him again at a different tournament:

“I haven’t seen you for a long time.”

“I don’t live around here.”

“Where do you live?”

“Fifty miles away.”

“That’s no excuse! You just hop in your car and drive on down.”

“I do not have a car. I do not drive.”

“Get yourself a man! That’s what girls do! Get a man and have him drive you places.”

“I’m going to go outside before I kill somebody.”

I constantly tell myself it’s okay to love the game and hate the people.

  1. If it wasn’t for out ability to provide comedic relief, and the occasional blog post, I can’t imagine why you would ever hang out with us. Men, that is. I’ve tried to teach my daughters that they shouldn’t settle for anything less than a good man. And that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.
