What is McCain Thinking? One Alaskan’s... →
(via ratherfancy) “Before her meteoric rise to political success as governor, just two short years ago Sarah Palin was the mayor of Wasilla. I had a good chuckle at MSN.com’s claim that she had been the mayor of “Wasilla City”. It is not a city. Just Wasilla. Wasilla is the heart of the Alaska “Bible belt” and Sarah was raised amongst the tribe that believes creationism should be taught...
Miami-Dade Election Outcome :( →
All of the commissioners were re-elected. The voter turnout was abysmal. Most people didn’t even know there was a vote going on at all. It seems most people don’t even care. There are 1,170,135 registered voters in Miami Dade. The voter turnout was 160,492.
As per usual, I had my morning coffee. However, my boss brought in leftover double extra chocolate birthday cake. I cannot sit still. The uncontrolable tapping is starting to urk my co-workers.
Miami Spice →
In the months of August and September a bunch of fancy expensive restaurants are participating in Miami Spice. The menus have a set price of $23 for lunch and $36 for dinner, which includes an appetizer, entree, and dessert.

Amanda: I'm not gonna mess with a crazy person. I took a picture of his "work station" though.
Me: his what?
Amanda: he put plastic down on all the counter space he was using to fold his laundry.
Amanda: There's a dude at the laundry mat that is cleaning the washing machine, using gloves, before he washes his clothes... He doesn't work here either. South Beach.
Me: Maybe you should get his number. I bet he likes doing dishes.
Amanda: Ha ha. He would have a heart attack if he saw our kitchen.
joshuawoulf: As I head to bed at 8:20 AM, I have this to say: Psych is the best fucking show on USA right now. Even RAW. Even Rape Unit. Even Monk. I’ve had the same sentiment since the show premiered. Although, I don’t watch those other shows. Psych is one of the best shows on television. You can also watch it on Hulu.com
US aims to tame Hurricanes →
“A hurricane reduction program likely to begin in October will devote $64 million to efforts such as spreading tiny salt particles in the storms to drain them of much of their rain before they hit land. Another idea is to place a layer of oil on the ocean in a storm’s path to cut evaporation from the sea, keeping the hurricane from getting too hot and thus more powerful.” This is...
