So I found a new game to waste my time and keep me from doing anything remotely productive. Zwok. As you can see I've played 359 games of it already and moved up from 14,000th position to 3342 in a couple of days. This and two dollars gets me on the subway, but it's mind numbing fun. The game is sort of like dodge ball (or multiplayer artillery) with your choice of rolling, exploding, bouncing and other balls. 3 players on a team, all human players. Greatest feat.. being the only player left on my team, being injured against 3 uninjured players and hitting all three players with one brick to knock them all down to nearly fatal injuries. Then proceeding to win the game. OK, again back to reality, this and two dollars gets me on the subway.

Just got an exciting e-mail on my yahoo e-mail account! Apparently I just inherited a fortune. The e-mail starts ...
"We act as solicitors and our services have been retained by Henry Cox, now late here in after referred to as our client. On behalf of late Henry Cox, I write to notify you that my late client made you a beneficiary to the bequest sum of One Million Seven Hundred Thousand British Pounds in the codicil to his will and last testament."
Then it goes on to describe who Henry Cox is, because I get alot of $3 million inheritances from people who I don't know in foreign countries where I have no family, or even ethnic ties sent to me in an e-mail box that I rarely even look at, let alone use. I can't wait till I get my check.

So, I'm on the suybway and an MTA outreach employee in his early 50's gets on the train. These people go around the subways looking for the homeless to see if they can give them clothes, find them a shelter etc. He doesn't see any homeless in my car so he proceeds to do a stand up comedy routine about subways. Here's a sample joke.
"This guy asks me how to get to 72nd street and I tell him he should take the number 2 train. I see him later and asked him how he made out. The guy says he couldn't find the number 2 train so he took the number 1 train twice."
At the next stop the MTA worker gets off the train and transfers to the local.

Just got released from jury duty and luckily I was able to snag a copy of "Jury Pool News". With articles like "Mongolian Jurist Tours NY Courts", "Nassau Jurist Takes a Seat in the Jury Box" and "New Courthouse Opens in Albany", I can't put this thing down. I have to call about a subscription.

The Guttenberg project has audio books, most of them are recited by computer voices. Close your eyes and listen to HG Well's "War of the Worlds" and imagine you're a space alien listening to an earth robot telling you the history of mankind.
Yeah, I couldn't stand listening to the whole thing either.

This is an open letter to the guy who was parked on the Palisades Parkway last night, in the dark, around exit 14 in the passing lane around a blind left hand curve. If you didn't notice, you almost had 60mph's worth of my bumper up your ass and you're lucky that there was no one in the right hand lane next to me. If you need a place to park, keep it on the grass.
