Tweets for the week of November 29th, 2009

  • It takes about as much energy to make a disposable aluminum roasting pan as it does to roast a turkey. #
  • making a chipotle quinoa stuffing for the 10kg bird in the oven, which only cost $6.88. Ah, loss-leaders, how do I love thee. #
  • Craig Venter reminds me a little of Hunter S. Thompson. A gonzo scientist. Oh yeah? F**k you. I'm gonna sequence myself anyway. #
  • The lower half of my face is covered with a paste of henna, lemon juice, and sugar, and my head is wrapped in plastic bags and tape. #
  • Arrrr, redbeard be bikin' down to the Museum of Natural History to learn about Genghis Khan, pirate king o' the central Asian steppes. #
  • The natural history museum was further away than expected… and the night a bit colder, and the bike routes could really be signed better. #
  • Going to climb Mt. Falcon in the late November sun. #
  • Just watched "Sleep Dealer". We need more thoughtful near-future sci-fi from the developing world. #
  • I'm thankful that I'm still interested in learning new and difficult things, despite my excessive schooling. #
  • Judge if you want. We are all going to die. I intend to deserve it. #
  • Happy Buy Nothing Day! Do your part to help ensure the so-called global "economy" remains in shambles. Yeah, Dubai, that means you, too. #
  • very sad to realize that the last 7 years of my life have been pretty much a complete waste. #
  • Things could be worse. Things can always be worse. However, I'm starting to wonder whether or not they can ever be better. #
  • Why does it always seem like I've got 7 +/- 2 things to do? #
  • Found a middle-eastern grocery in Denver near the Platte River bike trail. Also, I need some more pants. #
  • Got some tasty olives, some pants, and a 42 mile bike ride. #
  • English is wonderfully flexible. I'm going to try using xor when I mean exclusive or, and just plain 'or' for the and/or case. #
