Truth in Advertising?; Grim Reaper selling Smokes–LOL

I was heading out to the Post office this November 3, 2011 when I came across a fairly funny scene. To me at least. It’s the Grim Reaper selling Cigarettes on a street corner.

Advertising Fail! Might do better as a public service announcement.


You know, one of those folks, and this one truly nameless, advertising with a flip sign.

Excuse the resolution. Shot with my Samsung Focus Windows Phone 7 and cropped a bunch. Just struck me as pretty funny ha ha and funny ironic…


12vdc Motors Matched Set; possible robot drive

I found these mirrored left and right motors for $24. They were apparently automotive windshield wiper motors.


I participated at Occupy LA

Friday afternoon a series of tweets from someone I follow for technology caught my eye. She tweeted many pictures from Occupy Boston. I was struck by the number of people attending. I began to read about Occupy Wall Street in New York and other cities in the US and in other countries around the world too! I learned about OccupyLa from where I found a fairly well organized and maintained site. I was able to read about the goals and activities of Occupy LA and find a map and transportation suggestions.

Power over other Pairs

Power over other Pairs (PooP – perhaps the second o is silent)

I’m working on a project I’ve entered into Parallax, Inc. Spinneret Design contest. The first thing I need to accomplish after ordering and receiving the parts from Parallax is to create power for the Spinneret. Hello World on my Spinneret will have to wait for me to create a power supply and delivery method.
