Random Thoughts: Cloud, Vox, and Hello Kitty

Posted on August 28, 2014 9:13 am

Dropbox is now giving me 5 times as much space for 40% less in price. Yay competition!

Until upload speeds are much higher, it’s pretty hard to switch cloud drives when you have a lot of files, though.

I notice Apple isn’t even trying to compete on cloud pricing. 55GB for $100 year – can’t see anyone but biggest Apple loyalists pay that.

Ah, the free market. We’re constantly getting better products for cheaper prices while everyone else is waiting in line for bread.

The rich keep getting richer, and all we get in exchange are these boundless luxuries at constantly lowering prices.

So what percentage of gun deaths are children firing fully automatic weapons?

You can’t assert the genders in marriage are arbitrary but the numbers involved is somehow sacrosanct.

I’m kinda digging Vox as performance art.

David Chase told me they had Tony get shot between the eyes, but camera went dead and they couldn’t reset it.

I actually only watched through season 3 of Sopranos. I guess by missing the finale I literally missed nothing.

I wish Lost had just cut to black for its entire final episode.

I have to hand it to Vox: I’ve never seen clownish nonsense presented in such an aesthetically pleasing manner.

A fun thing to do if I was a political candidate would be to never be seen without an owl on my shoulder and never answer questions about it.

The best way for the NYTimes editorial board to explain any of their political decisions would be with three words: “We’re soulless hacks.”

Hello Kitty. Goodbye Sanity.

“Hello Kitty is people! It’s made out of people! Tell the world!”

    Well, it worked for Pallas Athena.

    Your owl comment reminded me of a character that has appeared in a couple of Terry Pratchett’s books: the Duck man. He has a live duck on his head at all times, but doesn’t know it. So comments/questions about the duck are responded to with “What duck?”

    You need to be more location specific– I feel as though the answer to this would be statistically higher in some African countries…

    Guess you didn’t see the news out of Utah.

    No, I’m not going to ask a certain “D List” author* if that will affect him or his pistol packing wife. You ask. I’ll stand over here and watch you get excoriated.

    Our prices are dropping because the products are being made by those people standing in line for bread….

    You don’t see that many tame owls. Might be hard to come by. Would it be one of those owls you have to inflate periodically, like Inspector Clouseau did with his parrot?

    That’s the stupid thing. Previously, some young child killed himself when firing an automatic weapon that went wild on him. (I looked it up: WESTFIELD, Mass. — An 8-year-old boy died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while firing an Uzi submachine gun under adult supervision at a gun fair.)

    And yet all this time later, some other idiot lets a small girl fire an automatic weapon?

    I was a political candidate

    Wait aren’t you old enough to run for president in 2016?
