Firearem death rate

Someone sent me this funny quote back in March that I thought I should share.  I have no idea where these numbers came from or how valid they are, but it's so tongue-in-check.

"If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the past 22 months, and a total of 2,112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers."

The firearm death rate in Washington, DC is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same period. That means you are about 25 percent more likely to be shot and killed in the U.S. capital, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the U.S..

Conclusion: The US should pull out of Washington, DC.

Experimenting with Cloth Diapering

For the last several weeks I've been doing extensive research on cloth diapers, what they are, how to launder, the whole nine yards. And to my amazement cloth diapering is a huge industry. When you think of cloth diapers you might think of your old grandmas cloth and pins. That's not the case anymore. In fact there are a whole slew of options from your traditional prefolds to full all-in-one systems that work just like disposables but you was instead of throw away. I'm still experimenting with all the various options but I have to say going cloth is actually way easier than I ever imagined and not that icky either. As I get the hang of this, I'll be sure to post my findings.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This Holiday season bears a special meaning with my first born turning 12 weeks on Sunday. Everyday I find something new to appreciate and enjoy. At three months, Orion is smiling more and more and has now discovers how to giggle. He no longer wails everytime something is wrong but now expresses himself more disticntly and now only cries when he truly is unhappy. We get to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Friday, which will be our second visit to the aquarium in less than a month. It is so exciting, not just for the exhibit but to see how much Orion will respond this time around.

So it's been a while since I've blogged.  In fact, I've been blogging sporadically the last few years.  Mainly the reason is due to a lack of inspiration and time.  But, the good news is I've now found something I could talk about endlessly...

Yes, that would be my newborn son, 10 weeks old, 11.6 lbs.  Everyday I run into a new adventure worth blogging.  While I cannot promise I'll blog daily, I can say I now have at least have something to blog about.  So let's see how this goes.

The AMA on the Stimulus Bill (Joke)

The American Medical Association has weighed in on the new economic stimulus package.

The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.  The gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception.  Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.  Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, "Oh, Grow up!"

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.  Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.  The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter...."

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.  The Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.

One way to view procrastination...

There are many times when you just can't bring yourself to do a dreaded task.  Here's one perspective for that dreaded task:

Mark Twain once said that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that itís the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long.
