to arrange a visit to see my Providence brother sometime this spring. His kids are growing up rapidly and I’m missing it. And I hate that. 2 months ago

to try this next year. I was going to try it this year, but haven’t gotten it together and am feeling the holiday pressure to get too many things done. Thanks. 4 months ago
1. If you could submit a fortune to be printed and have it put into a fortune cookie what would it say and who would get that cookie?
Before you two are through, you will run out of things to read.
Me & my wife
2. How many mismatched socks to you have right now? Do you ever put two together and wear them anyway?
About a dozen.
Yes, but I feel bad about it later.
3. How much sleep did you get last night?
4. What is your favorite comfort food?
Right now, it would be fried clams.
5. If you go into a restaurant to eat, do you wash your hands before you get served?
No. 4 months ago
Oddly enough someone posted something on Facebook that “proves” once and for all the United States never landed on the moon. I’m feeling pretty strange about that.
Do you believe the U.S. landed on the moon?
The U.S. has never once left the earth. I don’t know where people get some of this stuff.
Do you truly believe that the world is only about 5000 years old, like the Bible says?
The world is 7,003. The folks who wrote Genesis misheard.
Do you believe that beings evolve through the process described by Charles Darwin?
Darwin was a dodo. No, he entirely missed the point when it came to interpreting all that data. A waste.
Do you believe that dinosaurs existed, or are they a hoax?
There was no hoax, but nor were there dinosaurs. The fossilized bones are art.
Do you believe the Masons secretly control everything?
The Mason don’t control everything. Yet.
How about mind control weapons created by the Government?
Yes, how about them..Pretty clever, right?
Do you believe that vaccines are killing us all?
The vaccine to kill us all wasn’t FDA-approved as of this morning.
Any other conspiracies you’d like to share with us?
Before I answer, when you say conspiracies, what exactly constitutes one? For instance, if only a single person who happens to be alive planned something with a dozen formerly living people, is that a conspiracy? Or would that fall under the category of one person acting alone? It would really help to know that. Thanks. 4 months ago
ABC news says 17 stories. USA Today said only 5.
A quote from the ABC news piece:
The Verrückt will be “taller than Niagara Falls, taller than the Statue of Liberty from her toes to the torch” and “twice the height of the tallest wave ever surfed,” the Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark announced this week. The company is declining to share exact numbers until an official measuring event accompanied by Guinness World Records in the spring, but it did reveal that Verrückt means “insane” in German. 5 months ago
very mysterious about the height. Unintentionally, I’m sure. 5 months ago
I’d like it to be at least 150 feet tall. Anyone know where I can purchase one and who I can get to plant it? Thanks. 5 months ago
exactly how tall it will be yet. More than five stories apparently, with an amazing near vertical fall. No elevator. Instead you’ll have to climb 264 stairs, so that should prevent a lot of us bulkier people from trying it too many times. 5 months ago
the things you mention about Christmas, too. I have a healthy distrust of organized religion, but I love a joyful Christmas Eve service with a big choir. 5 months ago
dangerous if you don’t know where the slopes are, but I agree, it’s the best time to walk in the snow. Hoping we have three feet of it here. (I know, you’d probably be happy to only get that, but us flatlanders rarely ever see more than seven inches at a time.) 5 months ago
is currently in South America. The new tallest one will open about 20 miles from our house, in May 2014. We’ll be ready to slide then. 5 months ago

on making such a great start! First few weeks are almost always the hardest in a new position like yours, or so I’ve heard. 5 months ago
a Fitbit to keep track of how much sleep I get per night and how often I wake up at night. I’m averaging just under six hours a night. Not terrible. 5 months ago
Have spent far too much time thinking about this goal. Have spent a little time organizing my room in preparation. Now comes the hard part. 5 months ago
is still much slower than I’d like. Latest plan is cutting back on carbs, eliminating them at least a couple days a week. 5 months ago
