Some surfers tried coaching The Kook. They could be heard saying, "What you just did was very dangerous. You should keep control of your board it narrowly missed that person." Ah, but the Kook is a very stubborn breed and the very next wave repeats his mistakes.
Others tried shouting and intimidation, "Faggot! Get out of here Barney! You Suck!" But the Kook was undeterred, happily endangering the surfers.
Still others tried threat, "If you are ever on the same wave as me I'm going for blood! I will run you over with my fins! I will hurt you!" But the Kook does not comprehend the damage a surfboard can do. Perhaps never having felt the sting of a skeg against skin.
Then, when all hope was lost, the Kook was overheard saying, "I'm not to fond of this crowd."
Without missing a beat, as if my lips were driven by divine forces, I shouted, "The crowd's not to fond of you."
Uproarious laughter broke out from the crowd.
After this exchange The Kook looked hurt and bewildered. He recoiled from the water, retiring to the safety of his Corvette. Could chiamus be the undoing of the common Kook? Perhaps.
Now the team is on a break, all recoperating from our last several months of stress. While on this break I was trying to think about what I would like to do next. I had several brilliant ideas. A couple of products and some production tools were floating around in my head. The most promising idea I presented to Sony and I hope that I can get it produced. I don't want to say too much about it yet. Hopefully it will all work out because this idea, in my opinion, is amazing. I am seriously considering hacking it together if Sony doesn't let me build it through them.
In case you are wondering, I did not put the Amazon link here to make money off of the recommendation. I became an Amazon Associate to check out how it all works. I recently heard a speech from Jeff Bezos at the Web 2.0 conference on IT Conversations. What they are doing over at Amazon is very interesting. So, I am looking into it. I chose God of War as my first reccomendation because I know it kicks arse.
Ratings are there for a reason.
I just got the Michael Jackson Thriller Special Edition CD. It's got the Vincent Price recording session they did for thriller. There is a whole extra verse in there that's not in the song. Man, that guy has the coolest voice. There are a interviews with Quincy Jones and a few with Rod Temperton. Great stuff.
Right now, as far as I know, that scenario is not possible. But soon there will be a material strong enough to hold its shape with a vacuum inside, yet still be light enough to float. Perhaps it will be made out of nanotubes or something. I'm sure materials science will provide it sometime soon. Remember, it wasn't that long ago when we didn't have helium filled balloons.
