Betty's Vehicle

Betty, my brother Kevin's girlfriend, got in a pretty bad accident January 1st of this year. Here is a picture of her vehicle:

Fortunately, her only serious injury was an ankle broken in 7 or 8 places. She could have been hurt much worse. Tonight, she had 4 hours of surgery to put pins in her foot. It sounds like everything went well and she's on the road to recovery.

Oh, and for the record, the accident wasn't her fault.

Nancy Grace on Decapitation

On Friday's show, Nancy called "decapitation" a euphemism for chopping a person's head off.

In a related note, it turns out precipitation is a euphemism for rain.

Why is Everybody Piling on Java?

  1. Java: Evolutionary Dead End
  2. Computer Science Education: Where Are the Software Engineers of Tomorrow?
  3. The Perils of JavaSchools

Leave Java alone!!! All Java wanted was to give you a cross platform programing environment where code could be compiled once and run anywhere. All Java wanted to do was perform for you!!! And what do you do?!? You just trash it!!! It's not easy being Java!!! I know some Java people are tools, but you can't blame Java for that!!! Java is going through a tough time right now!!! Just lay off and let Java get its act together!!! It will come around!!!

The Return of Nancy Grace

Last night, Nancy Grace returned to TV for the first time since the birth of her twins. Here are some highlights from the show:

  1. Nancy revealed that she has never had a "man doctor". However, a couple of "man doctors" treated her and did the c-section on her when her babies had to delivered due to the problems Nancy was having at the end of her pregnancy. Somehow, both the babies and Nancy are doing well despite the efforts of these "man doctors".
  2. There is a regular guest contributor on Nancy's show that my friends and I call the "Pirrana Woman" because she has many sharp looking teeth. Last night this lady appeared on the show for a short time. It is possible she got her teeth fixed, but I can't be sure. If she did get her teeth fixed, we'll have to think up a new nickname for her.
  3. The "Fake Nancy Grace" didn't make an appearance.
  4. At least 7 different people/callers cried during the show.
  5. The Brittney Spears drama was Nancy's main story of the night. Is it it possible that Nancy thinks she can be a better mom than Brittney?
  6. Nancy spent more than half of her show showing off her new babies. She had a live feed from her New York apartment. The babies never cried. One of them had little devil horns. The other had alligator claws.
  7. It was revealed that Nancy's mom recently fell and broke both her arms. Did Nancy push her? Nancy said her mom slipped on some ice. So, we'll go with that story.

Wet Rush Hour in San Antonio

It rained this morning during rush hour in San Antonio. I heard on the radio that there were 60+ accidents around town. The above one happened outside my back window. That truck is in the ditch pointed the wrong way.
