Update syringe image… this has no antialiasing, radiosity is turned off, and it is a smaller-than-real-size render, all of which are designed to allow quick checking.  Not bad.  Let’s hope the emittance value isn’t set too high for the goo in the bottle and it doesn’t saturate the final render.

By the way, LC Aggie Sith from over at Hookers and Booze passed this link on when commenting at Soylent Green… bias, in Google?  Getoutofherenowayman.

Actually, their censorship here in the free world is as insidious as the Chinese censorship.  At least they are up front about it in China.

Time to start using Bing, people.

I know… “the cost of living is dying – everybody pays”.  The founder of Taco Bell, Glen W. Bell Jr, died.

It’s hardly authentic, but I love Taco Bell.  I grew up in the NW and I know and love authentic mexican food.  I even make it.

But Taco Bell is comfort food.

When I had my wisdom teeth out I asked to stop by TB and got a burrito.  Took it home and put it in a blender.

We drove from Tillamook to Eugene one evening and dad refused to stop until we got to Eugene.  We then went to a Taco Bell.  I was so hungry I opened up my taco and while my folks happened to both look over at the same instant, I literally drooled all over my food.  Still can’t live that one down.

Nipple biting.  Talk about getting too close to your work.

Some situations are nail-biters. This one’s a nipple-biter.

An off-duty cop was allegedly bitten in the chest outside a Gold Coast bar Sunday night, police said.

At about 9:30 p.m., Fernando Cooper, 31, and an off-duty officer got into a physical confrontation outside Gibson’s Bar and Steakhouse, the Sun-Times reports.

Police who witnessed the event say the officer identified himself, but the other man didn’t back down and continued to assault the cop.

Update:

What IS it with people anyway?  Why do people assume an invasion, as in “to occupy for gain” when it costs us far more than any monetary gain?

France accuses US of Haitian Invasion.

Our military serves two purposes, neither of which I approve of… disaster relief for other countries and security detail for other countries.

I’m not saying that I don’t think Haiti needs aid – I’m just saying I don’t think our military should be providing it.

Chavez… the simpleton.

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez on Sunday accused the United States of using the earthquake in Haiti as a pretext to occupy the devastated Caribbean country and offered to send fuel from his OPEC nation.

This is like saying “My neighbor covets the living space in my septic tank.”  What POSSIBLE use could we put Haiti to besides a tourist resort?

Note:  I am not likening Haiti to a septic tank.  I’m illustrating the idiocy of Chavez.
