Phenomenal Cosmic Powers. . . Itty-Bitty Living Space
Tuesday, May 11, 2004

HTML allows cool tricks like this and like that that ---> ... but why can't it include sound effects? This blog starts with a gigantic farting noise. Ahh.

I am a geek without a home. Somehow my dad, who is not at all athletic, got me into sports, so now I can name all 117 Division I-A NCAA College Football Teams, and obscure trivia and factoids re: the Houston Astros ca. 1980-present.

I also know way too much about cinema-- and not just the movies... I can rattle off directors, screenwriters and cinematographers, and I'm just now starting to remember costumers and set designers. I knew David Boyd DP'd Firefly before I even bought the DVD's.

I'm not saying I need help. I'm just looking for a good support group. Because the mountain of knowledge my brain seems to retain, is wobbling over toward U.S. Foreign Policy, and that cr*p just makes me want to stab somebody.

Happy Foot-Washing.

Yeah, there's that "NTN" triva that you can get in some bars or restaurants, and I generally kick a$$ at that. That's a warm, fuzzy feeling.

I did not, however, know that about seaweed.

Did you know, broken down to its component parts, the human body is only worth $1.42?

That's gotta be a pretty weird store, though.

Yeah I know what you mean about Foreign Policy. Much safer for everyone sticking to the useless weird factoids like “if you have a full size bed and make it every day you walk three miles a year making your bed.” Unless you particularly enjoy living in a 9x9 room one should avoid inflicting damage on others for some reason it is looked down upon by society.
You know many fine joints host trivia nights for those of us with incredibly useless information forever stuck in our head. For example:
Did you know the hardest color to counterfeit correctly is the green of the U.S. dollar bill.
That seaweed can grow a foot a day.
A shrimp’s heart is in its head.
Apples are members of the rose family.
Well you get the idea. The room is a lot less likely to get red and sticky when these are spouted vs. other lets say charged factoids.
