10 things I've Pondered Today

Would Spider-Man have any skills if he were fighting evil in the desert or on the moon?

Is Senator Wayne Allard (Colorado) really as bad of a senator as Time says in it's most recent issue?

Why do I think of Harry Potter every time I see a picture of Senator Olympia J. Snowe (Maine)? (pictured right from Time).

Why did Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes name their baby Suri? Were they thinking at all about how Suri Cruise sounded? (Not only does it sounds stupid but it sounds like Syracuse to me...Moses and Apple are much better names).

With record high heat and rolling blackouts in Fort Worth is it wrong for me to think of Enron?

Where did the Starbucks logo come from?

Why would anyone honestly want to buy underwear they could put their iPod in? (available at for $22)

Does the movie "There Will Be Blood" directed by P.T. Anderson have any chance of being an Academy Award winner as Will Gray predicts on his blog?

I remember a Time article my wife told me about where Rick Warren was trying to make Rwanda a purpose driven that's going?

I wonder what Coca-Cola's new coffee flavored beverage Blak taste like? I still haven't tried it.

If you try Blak make sure and update it. I've been looking and they aren't selling it around Indianapolis(at least not at the gas stations I frequent).

So, did Tommy-bot have placenta with a side of toast and jam? Never heard the final word on that. BLEAHH!!!

Suri means "Princess" in Hebrew, "red rose" in Persian, and "Yog-Sothoth" in Elder God.

Blak, eh? Even the name sounds gross...

Here's the scoop on the Starbuck's logo, according to Wikipedia:

"The company logo is a siren (sometimes referred to as a mermaid, but it is more likely a melusine since it has two tails). The logo has changed over the years to avoid offense. In the first version, the Starbucks siren had bare breasts and a fully visible, double fish tail. In the second, streamlined version, her breasts were covered by hair, but her navel was still visible, and the fish tail was cropped slightly. In the current version, her navel and breasts are not visible at all, and only vestiges remain of the fish tails. The original logo can still be seen on the Starbucks store in Seattle's Pike Place Market". And since "Starbuck" is a character in Moby Dick, it does make sense that she is a mermaid. I guess.

The original mermaid is quite scandalous as she holds her tails up, revealing her secret places for all to see!

I love my iPod, but what the fuck, y'know? I refuse to carry it around in my skivvies.

I guess it's for all those people who like to dance around their home in their underwear. Come on, we know you do it. ;)
