Random Friday Thoughts

I think I'm going to stop using public restrooms. It seems like every time I'm in one something strange happens. Not long ago I blogged about the strange person who didn't understand the concept of locking the stall door. A while back I found two packages of unopened cookies in a bathroom stall (my wife wouldn't let me eat them). Today I found someone's car keys in the bathroom stall at work, not on the floor where you might expect them, but hanging from the grip bar next to the toilet paper. Was someone doing gymnastics in there? I don't know.


If you like the pissed off, cynical comic strip stylings of David Rees (Get Your War On, Adventures of Confessions of Saint Augustine Bear) as much as I do, you might be interested in this video of him speaking at Columbia University.


Alternet recaps the top 10 power brokers of the Religious Right. The unholy quadrinity is there (Robertson, Falwell, Dobson and LaHaye), plus a few lesser known extremists. Combined annual revenue? Roughly $446 million. That's a lot of wasted money.


Check out this remix of Kanye West's Gold Digger. It's The Legendary K.O.'s George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People.

Sample lyric:

He said, "I know it looks bad, just have to wait"
Forgetting folks who too broke to evacuate
Niggas starving and they dying of thirst
I bet he had to go and check on them refineries first
Making a killing off the price of gas
He would have been up in Connecticut twice as fast


Olsen twin porn. Will it happen? I don't know.

I'm just close enough to these type of folk to know every group or personality listed on the Top Ten Evangelical freaklist.

my amusing public restroom story:
my friend K works at a local chain coffee shop, one day friend L and I were visitng her at work following a greulling morning of sorting through vintage clothes at a thrift store. we wanted to wash our hands before partaking of our free coffee and went into the single restroom to do so. as we were going in together, an older lady tried to come in with us, we explained that there was only one restroom and we would be out in a minute after washing our hands. we went inside, closed the door behind us (without locking) and began washing our hands.

older lady who apparently didnt understand english followed in after us (didnt lock the door behind her), and proceeded to drop her pants and sit down on the toilet in front of us. now we are hostages cause we can't very well open the door while she is doing her business so we finish drying our hands and just had to wait around till she finished doing her thing looking at the wall. then she pushed past us without washing her hands and went through the door. we vowed to always lock the door behind us from then on, even if only washing our hands.

Public restrooms are only good for amusing graffiti read breaks. An amusing vandal in my area has starting pasting pages out of books to bathroom walls with rubber cement/varnish/snot?
