- Four people snowboarding at the same time on a banked course filled with jumps in the Olympics is more like the X-Games. But I liked it.
- There will be 19,000 homicides in the U.S. this year but 32,000 suicides? (Source)
- I end up buying Girl Scout cookies every year and then giving them away because I can't stand them.
- Mardi Gras looks like a beating.
- I'm still stunned that Kenneth Starr was named president of Baylor. I think what always drove me nuts was that he made the decision to refer the impeachment proceedings against Clinton to the House without ever having tried a criminal case or having met Monica Lewinsky. He just seemed like an Ivory Tower guy (or Ned Flanders) that wasn't qualified to make that decision. And, in the end, he wasn't.

- Guess when the youtube.com domain name was registered? It was just five years ago (as of last Saturday). That's amazing. (Having been formed in February of 2005, Google bought it for $1.65 billion in October 2006.)
- I was watching an old Seinfeld episode last night (Kenny wants a free meal from Jerry in exchange for an Armani suit) and I was wondering when it first came out. I pressed the Info Button and was stunned to see if was in 1991. Wow. Almost 20 years ago.
