Bai Ling
10 30th, 2005

So I think it’s fair to say Roger Ebert was a little enamored of Bai Ling during a recent encounter at the Honolulu International Film Festival. And it’s easy to see why, she appears to be allergic to clothes.

Bai Ling

You know, I was going to post up a picture of her naked, from a Playboy spread she did a few months ago – a Playboy spread that supposedly got her cut from her bit part in the latest Star Wars movie. Just so y’all don’t think I’m a prude of anything, here’s that photo of Bai Ling naked that was one of many plastered all over Google. I just thought I wouldn’t make life rough for anybody reading this page at the office. That’s the kind of considerate guy I am.

Segways On Guam
10 30th, 2005

Segway Human TransporterI mentioned it a couple months ago, now it is hitting the news:
Segways may soon be zipping down Tumon’s roads & sidewalks if a bill before the Legislature passes. The local distributor is confident that the bill will pass and allow the electric thinga-ma-bob start rolling around on the island’s streets and sidewalks.

Read a couple very good articles on intelligent design this morning, one a strident call to arms, the other a lucid exposure of the intellectual vacuity of intelligent design.

My college football coach is retiring after the 2005 season, marking the end of a 29 year career with the Beloit College Buccaneers. Looks like the Bucs are not doing so great this year, struggling through a so so season. They’re currently a middling 3-5, though they shut out Knox last week 38-0, their first shut out in 10 years.

Boy I still remember that game at St. Norbert’s in 1990. That was a hell of an effort, probably the best game I’ve ever played. It was a come from behind, overtime win against the perennial powerhouse in the Midwest Conference. Our victory won Beloit the North Division title and the right to host the conference championship. It was definitely the apex of my football career, especially since we were routed two weeks later in the championship game. At least we have that great battle against St. Norbert’s to cherish.

Congratulations Coach DeGeorge, on a long and fruitful career.

Twikes Again

Hey look! My post on Twikes has been cited by a web magazine. Eric Shackle found my brief story about Twikes interesting.

Marines Come To Guam
10 30th, 2005

And now it is official: The Marines are coming to Guam. The Pacific Sunday News reported this morning that up to 7,000 Marines will relocate from Okinawa to Guam over the next 2 to 8 years, a move designed to appease the restive Okinawan population. The Guam business community and government have lobbied for this shift for several years, especially during the lean years following 2001. The presence of 7,000 Marines and their families will boost the island’s economy dramatically.

Now if only the island could garner a carrier task force...
