In case of accident...

So I just got done reading "Ask A Cripple" on the Tucker Max Message Boards.
(Very good read, the kid is incredibly cool.)

It got me thinking about certain things and I've decided on a few things should I be unlucky enough to become wheelchair bound.
  1. This shit is hilarious, and I would rock it as a Halloween costume no questions asked.
  2. I would definitely need to have a chair like this.
  3. I can only hope that I would be as cool as these guys. I would definitely be attempting it at the very least.
  4. I would work out my arms like crazy. I'd want able-to-get-anywhere-via-monkey-bars strength.
OK, I'm going to stop thinking about this, I'm starting to get this paranoid fear of breaking my spine now.

Turn on your lights!

So while driving at 11:30 PM, while it's snowing, I drove past someone who found it acceptable to be driving their Jeep with only their parking lights on.

Who actually thinks this is OK?!

If you're too dumb to remember to turn on your lights when it's dark and snowy, please die in a fire. And if you haven't realized by now that if your dashboard is lit up, yet the road is mysteriously dark, you might want to check your owner's manual to find out where your tire iron is so you can kill yourself with it.
On the other hand, if you think it's perfectly alright to drive at night without your headlights actually being on, kindly keep up your standards of low visibility and stand in the middle of a major highway wearing all black at night. You end should be about as quick as you are not.

I have found the sound of insomnia

It's Ricardo Villalobos - Fizheuer Zieheuer; a thirty seven minute, eleven second minimalist techno track, which will have you wondering what's going on in your brain after about the ten minute mark.

Listen to the entire thing (on headphones, and no taking them off) and I will place money that it will have ingrained itself into your psyche.

...I can't take off the headphones.
