Loving the Olympics ... after all the hand wringing we have the games themselves, and the athletes, and the performances, and it's just great fun to watch. I wish there were more hours in the day (and more GB on the Tivo :)
Cool sports I hardly knew, but now like: Curling - lots of strategy, Skeleton - Luge on your stomach!, Slopestyle - Waaaaa, and Biathlon - skiing and shooting combined. So far the only sport I've found to be a disappointment is ski jumping. Now that they slide down a track, it just doesn't seem real anymore.

The other day I noted Bill Gates spent all day upgrading to Win 8.1. Turns out that was a parody! Who knew? I guess I should have known better, but somehow it seemed so plausible :)
Speaking of parody: IL partners with The Onion to push Obamacare. "To get more people to sign up for health care, the state is bragging it will spend $150,000 on ads for the satirical news site The Onion." Hehe. Wait ... that's not a parody? Our tax dollars are being used for this?
Dumbest idea ever: adding noise to an electric car. Then again, I don't think trucks should beep when backing up, either.
