Random Thoughts: 5 Guys, Hashtags, and Frogs

5 Guys is good at making burgers, bad at BACON REMEMBRANCE.

Before leaving with my order, I even asked, “Did you remember the bacon?” I’d get more mad if everyone there weren’t always so nice.

I’m not going to eat some baconless burger like some savage! I mean, I did, every bite (plus the fries), but I still missed the bacon.

The only reason the Nazis were around so long is Twitter didn’t exist then to bring them down with hashtags.

Why hasn’t Obama released the power of the hashtag on the economy? It’s like he doesn’t want people to have jobs.

Scientists should come up with environmentally friendly solutions that save money and not care whether people believes in global warming or not.

Oh wait. Doing useful things with science is the job of engineers.

Why hasn’t the government done something about how poison dart frogs’ bright colors make them look appetizing to small children?

Despite how they look, poison dart frogs are not berry flavored.

Nothing worse than getting a grizzly bear in a headlock and forgetting what the Boy Scout manual says you’re supposed to do next.

  1. Nothing worse than getting a grizzly bear in a headlock and forgetting what the Boy Scout manual says you’re supposed to do next.

    Page 170-171 of the 12th edition lists what to do next — have the bear lie down, feet propped up 12 inches above body to promote blood flow back into the core, and cover it with a blanket or sleeping bag to keep it warm. (This is listed as “treatment for shock” — I’d imagine that if you get it in a headlock, the bear will be shocked.)

    The Boy Scout Handbook contains all manner of useful information; for example, page 140 has a couple of paragraphs on how to deal with an animal you suspect is carrying zombie virus. It turns out that they recommend against scouts trying to dispatch such animals themselves in favor of letting animal control take care of it due to the risk of scouts becoming themselves infected with zombie virus and needing an anti-zombie shot.

  2. “Doing useful things with science is the job of engineers.”

    Interesting, in my career, I’ve only met one scientist who did all of his own engineering. But I’ve known several engineers who were forced to do their own science so they could engineer a solution. Go engineers!
