Little darlings

Nov 20, 2010 | | 0 comments |

So I'm sitting here eating lunch and there's a family here with seven
kids. For the last fifteen minutes, everyone in this Burger King has
been subjected to "Jake put that down. Miley don't do that. Carson
stop! Eric don't break that. Terry come here. Jake PUT THAT DOWN!
Robbie don't climb on that. Suzy get out of the trash. Carson I said
NO. Terry - here! Miley - no - I know but you can't do that here. Jake
pick that up." Etc. Etc. Etc. 'Carson' just keeps whining "I wanna get
down" over and over again and on top of that, the seventh child, a
mere baby, is switching back and forth between eating mashed up French
fries (great diet for a baby) and screaming it's head off.
In short the parents have no control over their kids, and apparently
it didn't occur to them to stop after they'd had one or two.

National Opt-out day

If you're traveling for Thanksgiving, force the TSA to invasively frisk you rather than giving you cancer.

Korea

I'm on my way home from Korea now, but rather than simply getting the
express bus back to the airport I am going into Seoul first to meet
someone I've done contract CGI work for in the past. I'm on a Korail
bullet train right now, nipping across the countryside at 300kmh using
their free wifi! If all goes according to plan, I will meet up with my
work colleagues for the flight from Incheon tonight. If not .... Well
best not worry about that :-)
