|Miscellany!||Sunday, 2008 March 16 - 10:58 am|
|Wow, I haven't done a "miscellany" post in a while. But there are a few stories I've seen recently that are begging for commentary.|
The New York Times posted a flow chart that diagrams the path of your life depending on whether you were exposed to Dungeons and Dragons early in life. I think the best part of this diagram is the little square in the lower left that says "doubting the technical accuracy of this diagram". I am certain that people who are familiar with flow chars AND who played D&D early in life will end up in this square.
The University of Michigan has won a contract from the United States Army to design robotic bats. This is presumably either to combat the hordes of robotic mosquitoes that the terrorists plan to use against us, or to bombard the Ohio State football team with robot guano. I, for one, welcome our new robotic bat overlords.
Disney is reportedly exploring the idea of an "adult-oriented" theme park, near Disneyland in Florida. I'm not exactly sure what they mean by "adult-oriented", but this does remind me of when my friend Gary and I had the idea of a porno theme park called "Bush Gardens". (You can just imagine the possibilities... think of roller coasters entering tunnels, staff members dressed as famous porn stars, and a popular midway game called "Whack-Your-Pole".)

|The only thing that I require in this adult theme park is flagrant open alcoholic container encouragement - and the selling of said alcohol at street prices. The Vegas show titled "The Thunder from Down Under" featuring Australian "chippendale like" dancers might be a nice feature as well.|
