I’ve watched The Dark Knight now about ten times and the “pencil trick” just keeps on being awesome. I ended up getting trapped in the Wiki Rabbit Hole last night about Batman. Partly this is because Lego Batman has eaten my soul the past couple of days.
I am nearing 100%/1000gc on it.
Metallica is playing in Oakland on December 20th. Tickets are a bit expensive (60+), but I could easily be convinced to go if there is anyone else who wants to rock out. Opening: The Sword and Lamb of God.
Today, my father scored his sixth hole in one while playing golf. The odds of an amateur hitting a hole in one are 12,500 to 1, which is pretty long. I remember that his handicap used to be around 5 or so, but I asked him today what it was and he texted me: “Well, it has risen from 8 to 16 over the past two years. I don’t know what’s going on with that because it *surely* can’t be old age.”
Thursday night several people gathered in my place to watch the Vice Presidential candidate debate. Also to eat lots of pizza and consume lots of alcohol. It took us over three hours to watch a 90 minute sequence, because we kept pausing it and talking about what was just said.
It was much fun, and I’ll probably do something similar on Tuesday.
