Woo, Red Sox swept. Only an Indians loss to the Yankees stopped it from being a utterly stupendous sports day.
Quote of the Moment
"It's fun to shoot some people....Actually, it's a lot of fun to fight. You know, it's a hell of a hoot. I like brawling."
--Lt. Gen. James Mattis, U.S. Marines, via Bill the Splut
Amusement of the Moment
Slashdot reported on an emergency rocket evacuation system that's about the third tallest roller coaster in the world. Be sure to click on the image... you see the car poised to go forward a bit, then straight down. (And continues to roll straight into a bunker, which is an image that amuses me a little bit.)
