I don’t necessarily agree with all of them, but here are some good reasons that you ladies should date geeks and nerds (that means me ).
This is one of the coolest vocal performances I’ve seen.
I just got a job offer from Bridgeport Networks as a Software Engineer making a pretty good salary. This is pretty cool. I think I just made my decision about grad school (for now).
|You scored 79% Adam Smithiness!|
|If you did well, awesome! If you didn’t do well, then you probably
ought to consider reading up on economics before you participate in the
next election. “Economics in One Lesson” by Henry Hazlitt is a great
place to start.
Thanks for taking my test. Don’t forget to rate it!

There’s been a series of articles in the Chicago Sun-Times about the Minuteman Project, a group that has organized willing citizens to patrol the border between Arizona and Mexico looking for illegal immigrants and reporting them to the authorities.
- Volunteers to Patrol Border
- Volunteers Sign Up for Mexico-Arizona Border Patrol
- 18 Migrants Arrested in Arizona After Volunteers Spot Them
I think this is awesome. It’s much like the militias that worked with the regular army in the revolutionary war. However, the Sun-Times seems to be taking every opportunity they can to say “vigilante violence may erupt” and warn against doing things on your own. Typical nanny-statist response. These people are volunteering to defend the country. They probably aren’t gung ho about doing it this way, they’d probably like to do it however is best. Therefore, the best response would not be “Don’t help! You’re causing problems!”, instead they should say “You want to help? That’s great! Can you do it this way? We’ll help you if you do.” Capitalize on free labor when it’s there!
Check out Google maps. In the upper right corner is a link that says Satellite. This simply amazes me. I know satellite imagery is nothing new, but at this level of usability it’s awesome, and never before has it been searchable like a map (afaik). You can even do directions on a satellite image! This is one of the most amazing things I’ve seen come out of Google yet. I’ve been having fun for the past 15 minutes looking around Chicago from a very different perspective, and I’ve found things I didn’t know were there. Awesome!
(When you spider this, thanks Google!)
