It's time for one ofy my patented random posts...

Want to screw with your mind? Learn about the weird psychological quirk called the McCollough Effect. Click here and follow the instructions, which involve staring at your screen for a few minutes.

The one thing that really bothers me is heights, so I am virtually shitting myself just looking at these pictures. There are many things I would like to do if I ever go to Vegas, but going on these rides is certainly not one of them.

Attention font geeks: here is a really interesting article in the New York Times about the process behind changing the font used on road signs in the USA. Shouldn't be interesting, but it really is.

And finally, here is Robert De Niro with Elmo. As with all Muppet stuff, there is some class comedy here.

Been to Vegas a bazillion times, but have never been on the Stratosphere rides. The rollercoaster in New York, NY is pretty fun. And I seem to think that I've been on another rollercoaster there, in some other hotel, but I can't quite remember which one it would be.

My favorite thing to do in Vegas is play bingo. It's very stressful, but only costs like $6-ish and lasts for an entire hour. I both like and dislike how the insides of the casinos are decorated/painted to resemble the outdoors. It feels pleasant until you realize that there's no chance for you to even see the outside, which is creepy.

If you ever come to California, I'll take you to's only about a 3-4 hour drive from my house.

I'm interested in that font article, but will have to read it tomorrow.
