Check your clocks, people.

Tempus Fugit, but where does it go?

Ed B:

Wait, does this mean that digital clocks don't slay time?

Kevin The Zeroth:

The politicians took it, G. At least the hour today. Masters of Time and Space they are! No budget for next year? No problem! We'll call next year 2011, too.

I think digital clocks burn through time with lasers, Ed. It's supposed to be more humane, but alas, time is gone all the same.

"Time flees irreparably while we are each captivated by our circumstances."

Dr. Bob:

How come time flies when you're having fun, but as any kid would observe, it seems like forever sitting outside the principal's office?

It didn't take Einstein to realize time is relative.

Of course the NFL (no fun league) has made a killing out of making a 60 minute game last three + hours and the last 5 minutes of a close game takes half an hour.

John Cox:


How 'bout the last three seconds of an NBA game?


Agh! I almost forgot! If it weren't for johncoxart.com I'd be late to work tomorrow.



Yes, that's correct--& Thomas Jefferson should be forever condemned for not ratifying a nuclear arms treaty.


One of the reasons I've not watched either for more than 20 years (the others being biased officiating--either to manipulate spreads or favor a given team, & manufactured controversy--just so people will talk about bad calls & make "bread & circuses" an even more disproportional aspect of their lives).

I'm REALLY looking forward to an irresolvable strike, but why should I care? It's not like the libraries are going to be overrun by NFL fans either way.


Of all the things about this mortal plane that I can't get used to, the worst is the passage of time.

I long for the time when I can just loll about without deadlines getting any closer.

Dr. Bob:

Hey T:

I watched only 1 NFL game all season (the SuperBowel) mispelling intended and can't remember when I last watched even part of an NBA game.

It is so sad the play can be so good and the officiating so terrible at the same time.

Memo to the refs - we don't tune in to watch you blow you're friggin' whistles.

BTW, I have an old wind-up Big Ben clock from the 20's. While it's not as big as the clock in John's toon, it sure as heck sounds like it.

This Blog was most helpful, your ideas are straight to the point, and the colors are cool too.

Hermes Replica Brand Bags:

In addition to the achievement of overalls, the popularity of the messenger bags is rising. The designers may have a lot of male bags to serve several purposes, and done smart and manly.

Louis Vuitton Handbags:

I thought about this problem long ago. And also, why they buy replica brand Discount Replica Handbags searched choose Google. Then I put some details on this topic. The first reason is that all replica bags are very cheap.

swiss rolex watches:

But the main reason for buying one of the best swiss rolex watches for men and women is that they have invested in watches, the returns of more than three times its original purchase price. Ask any owner of Patek Philippe and Rolex for confirmation.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Hey – nice site, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my websites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
