  1. Gotta Look at Your Phone in 5:00 Traffic?

    But reading the text on a cell phone has got to be the worst.

    Texas A & M is on its way to upsetting North Carolina.

    It is Stephen F. Austin University, and it is located in Nacogdoches, Texas, which is in the Piney Woods of East Texas. They are the the SFA Lumberjacks. It's a somewhat well-known decent university for partiers. Stephen F. Austin is known as "The Father of Texas" for establishing the first anglo colony in "Texas" (it was Spain/Mexico back then) when his father, Moses Austin, obtained a large Spanish land grant for the purpose of establishing a colony where he would be "empresario." The people SFA originally brought to settle the area were known as the Old Three Hundred. The capital of this new colony was San Felipe de Austin, now the town of San Felipe in Austin County. It is about 50 miles due west of Downtown Houston.

    Basketball Heaven has just begun! Go Sooners!

    Pleased because they are better than previous results? Or pleased for some other reason?

    7 Texas teams are in. I'm ready.

    What other reason, besides making money, do nations try to control the world?
  8. Anti- Intellectualism

    Maybe there is something to it. Empires are built for one purpose - making money. If people refocus their efforts on pleasure, instead of money, it might be harder to maintain the empire.

    I can be your butler.

    You're on to something. Next time I visit Hawaii, I will buy a one-way ticket there and play the part to get a free return home.

    I think it's not easy to compartmentalize their population like that. It's a degradation of their culture, and cultures tend to follow the exoduses at least to some degree.

    They are. It was even covered tonight on 60-Minutes. Human traffickers are loading Mexicans by the tens and hundreds into the backs of 18-wheelers, and some are dying inside them. Part of the expose discussed the reasons they are leaving in hoards - because the gangsters are intimidating local businesses, forcing mom and pop to shut them down and just flee. For 60-Minutes to confirm this (probably not intentionally), there must be some truth to it.

    It seemed pretty much just like the mainland, except for the fact that its nights and days are screwed up because of being so far around the world. All the prime-time events occur mid-afternoon over there.

    I just tuned in 10-15 minutes ago. Haven't seen them all season and didn't even know they were doing well. They look good!
  15. Anti- Intellectualism

    Yeah, I think so, too. The Age of Enlightenment couldn't have come at a better time - namely, juxtaposed to the scientific revolution and industrialization. I wonder if the latter had anything to do with the transition into "Enlightenment." Thanks, oldie! The feeling is mutual. And, yeah, I'm going to be 50. Kind of odd, but I don't feel old (I just know I am).
