I noticed that Google Maps added a Search feature, with an "example search" in gray text. The example search was 'Hotels in New York'. I figured I'd try a different search - an unlikely one (this comes naturally to me since I test software for a living) - so I chose "Morons in America", not really expecting anything at all. Lo and behold, Google's motto seems to be "never say never", and I got the following list:
(A) Montage Resort & Spa Laguna Beach - 30801 Coast Hwy
(B) Arclight Hollywood - 6360 W Sunset Blvd
(C) Presidential City Apartments - 3901 City Line Ave
(D) Desert Inn Resort Motel & Club - 900 N Atlantic Ave
(E) Fry's Electronics - 340 Portage Ave
(F) Vision - 640 N Dearborn St
(G) ElCid Tapas Bar & Restaurant - 322 W 15th St
(H) Micro Center-Commercial & Ntwk - 2645 N Elston Ave
This is especially amusing to me since the Fry's Electronics they put here is very near to my office! Think they are telling me something?
I might just have to go and visit that Spa in Laguna Beach and see if it really is the Number One location of Morons in America
A Google Maps search for 'Creeps in Canada' turned up only one result. Not even in Canada, I'm afraid, but California. At least the location started with "CA"
14400 Bear Valley
Wonder what the heck that is?

Anyone around my age should remember the " 15-year-old Perfect Master ". He was some kid from India whose mom was a hell of a promoter. They sold out stadiums across the nation in the early 1970's, and had some famous followers like Jerry Rubin, if I'm not mistaken. Still, I wonder what happened to that guy. Since he was about the same age as me, he'd be a forty-something perfect master by now. At the time I was confused about that. I thought he was the 'Perfect 15-year-old Master', as if they had a Perfect Master for every age, and they'd all get bumped up every year, like Father Time. I wondered how they managed to co-ordinate all their birthdays, or whether to be a Perfect Master you even had to be born on a certain day, in order to facilitate that transition. The great thing about being a Perfect Master is it seemed you really didn't need any special skills, except perhaps plumpness and sitting still . I didn't have either of those traits a
I met this kid with A.D.D. - Asshole Dad Disease. Nothing wrong with him that trading in the dad for a better model wouldn't fix.
a play in no acts: man of the cloth, staunchly anti-gay, anti-drugs, anti-you-name-it, periodically checks into a downtown hotel to have a 'private retreat', where he can write little books and sermons about how jesus was anti-gay, anti-drugs, and anti-you-name-it. man of the cloth gets bored, gets a little lonely, gets to thinking about how nice it would be to get high and have sex with a male hooker. aaahhh. that was good. afterwards he goes home to his little miss perfect submissive female and his well groomed kids and his wannabelieve congregation and tells them how bad everything is - and he should know. in fact, he's gonna do a little more research on all those very bad things.

Some nice little pickup line tidbits from That Girl Who Writes Stuff : ----------------------- -Tells you . . . when the city you’re in doesn’t have a military base . . . that he is “shipping out tomorrow . . . . to uh, um, fight the French.” -Tells you that you’re worth the price of a steak dinner (insulting and creepy) -Engages in Google Spew (This is when a person throws one inane piece of trivia after another at you to show how smart they are) -Tells you that you’re so pretty he wants to cut you up, put you in his freezer and thaw you out when he wants a piece. . . . and tells you how big the freezer is. ---------------- I think I've never used a pickup line in my life. Not that I've never needed to! I just can't. The best one ever directed at me was when I was working at the Compact Disc Warehouse, and this one lady came over and said to me, "excuse me, but you are so good-looking" (excuse me, but she was so desperate!). All I could say was "woah&
question: how can the human world be changed, other than by means of large-scale unfortunate events? (such as war, conquest, famine, disease, natural disasters, etc ...)
The number of stars in the universe, according to Wired magazine. inconceivable.
We begin in a small bookstore. The bookstore owner (Wolff) is seated behind the counter reading PK Dick's "Ubik" when a man (Ronson) comes in, shows him a picture of another man and asks if he has seen him. In that moment, the two men seem to partially become each other, but the transaction becomes a normal sale as if nothing unusual just happened. The 'customer' (Ronson-Wolff) leaves the store and the 'owner' (Wolff-Ronson) remains where he was. Two men (Jimmy and Riley) come rushing in, looking for their leader, Ronson, but not recogonizing the partial Ronson-now-Wolff as that man. Told he has just left, they rush back out onto the street but see only a family - a father, teenaged son, and young daughter. The two men decide to return to 'the station', as the teenaged son comes into the bookstore, says goodbye to his family. The young man is reporting to work. The young man (Myron) and the bookstore owner (Wolff) later go to lunch together, at a r
(if you were directed here from a russian porn site, sorry. i have no idea why. you may click your back button now) Writers who continually write find the events of their lives slipping into their stories like streams feed into a river. It's not so much that 'one thing leads to another' as that 'all things lead to each other.' The strands coming into every instant of anyone's life are far too complex to unweave, and every writer has to encounter that fact. Some go the way of the vast detailed saga, with boatloads of words and stabs at psychological insight. Others try different methods like stream of consciousness or radical variations. Still others sit back and just tell a story and leave all the myriad threads to themselves. There's no right way. (A constant critique of my own stories is that they're too short, wind up too quickly, and leave some things unexplained, but I have my own pace, I follow my mind. I don't try to do anything else).
