Update: Go Taco Bell!

A day or so ago I had fun making a Taco Bell graphic – mocking the ridiculousness of the entire situation.  And I also stated that I wish Taco Bell would win lawsuit.

Still do.  If I cheerlead enough do you think I could get a free six-pack of tacos to go?

Check back in this space [right here] tonight when I tell my very own Taco Bell story.

Now, Taco Bell paid for a full-page ad, which makes me pretty sure they’re not going to mind any extra free coverage, so here’s the advert again.  (If they ask, I’ll take it down but I’d be shocked if they did.)

Go, Taco Bell, fight the food nazis, win, and take a pound of flesh when you counter-sue!  Just don’t ruin the flavor of the tacos by using that pound of flesh, thank you.

I think they’re about to show the fruit-bats where the beef is.

Update: Huh.  Hit counter… 199,425 hits.

Who knew there were so many cases of bored people?

Update #2: Oh f*** me in both ears.

D&D in Prisons Could Lead to Gang Activity.  Didn’t we already live through this happy bullsh** with Tom Hank’s stoopid-beyond-belief D&D version of  “Reefer Madness”?

I say that as one whose mother tossed all his D&D books in a dumpster somewhere while he was at school.

Update #3: Oh please.  She was not jailed for sending her kids to a better school.  She was jailed for breaking the law by lying on her paperwork.  The mechanics were different but it’s not much different than holding up stores to pay for your kid’s school.  It’s taking money that isn’t yours.

I freely admit:  I love Taco Bell.

An engineer I worked with for a year said something about it that I’ll never forget.

Why Taco Bell?  Because it’s cheaper than food.

That was a pretty profound statement but I’d still eat the stuff every day if I could.

I’ve found the latest lawsuit to be both funny and puzzling.  Funny because, well, you get it.

Puzzling, because it still tastes pretty good.

Me? I'm rooting for Taco Bell.

I am loving PhotoShop.  I’ve always been bullish on open-source and freeware but I’m a convert.  There’s a good reason why it’s as popular as it is.  Been saving for it forever and finally was able to justify buying the package.

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.
