They found Leviathan

April 30th, 2009

Evidence of larger sea creatures that more accurately match the Bible’s description (Job 41) of Leviathan. Now you should feel bad for making fun of the olde-worlde map makers who knew these creatures were out there!

New evidence that Dinosaurs are nowhere near as old as evolution keeps clinging to.

And a cute little snake.


While waiting for Okami 2…

Muramasa: The Demon Blade is likely to come to the states. This Wii game approaches the style and ambience of Okami. For a side-scroller 2D, it is magnificent!

Bubble Tea (Boba Tea) In Tucson, AZ

April 11th, 2009

In only one week the goal was to try every Thai and Vietnamese shop in Tucson, Arizona that served Bubble Tea (Boba). There were seven shops to attempt. Javalinas Coffee sold out to Java Edge and no longer serves Bubble Tea. Here are the shops we tried, listed in order from greatest to least. At the end is our first attempt at making the Tea ourselves.

I need to start with two honorable mentions. The Best Thai Tea in Tucson is naturally at the best Thai restaurant – Bangkok on the corner of Tucson and Speedway. They don’t serve the tapioca in the tea, but it is the most vibrant and authentic tea to be sampled.
Runner up for the best Thai tea was Luckies (Da Yuan Express) at Houghton road. They no longer serve the Boba in the tea. They have cheap eats of the MSG-free Chinese fare, and very friendly service!

Asian Diner (Speedway Near Campbell)4.10Mango, Banana, Honeydew, CoffeeYuck! Over syrup, Something was wrong with the storage of the pearls or something. We could not drink them. We had to pay .60 cents more to put the tapioca in and we ended up with less amount than other shops!

NOT Drinkable

Most Expensive

Very frozen

We just had to make some ourselves! We went to G and L Oriental market and snagged all the needed bits. We bought fat straws and two kinds of tapioca balls that are pre-packaged. Fun experiment and Much cheaper. Now to perfect the Thai Tea recipe!

If you live in Albuquerque, be sure to try the Bubble Tea shop near the TaLin Market. The best Bubble tea I have ever had was in Las Vegas at Lollicup. None of these mentioned above come close to that.

Obama vs. Bush

April 5th, 2009

Bush is bad because he made a bailout.  Obama is good because of multiple bailouts.

Bush is bad for making an economic stimulus package.  Obama is good for making an economic stimulus package.

Bush is bad because he favored the tax burden toward high income taxpayers. Obama is good for burdening the higher bracket tax payers.

Bush is bad because he invaded Iraq.  Obama is good because he invaded Afghanistan.

Bush was a fool for making culture blunders with foreign dignitaries.  Obama is cool for making culture blunders with foreign dignitaries.

Bush was bad for expanding the federal budget by 700 billion.  Obama is good for expanding it another 1 trillion.

Bush is bad for a Medicare drug entitle­ment that costs an estimated 800 billion. Obama is good for a 634 billion down payment on a new govern­ment health care fund.

Bush is bad for increasing federal education spending 58 percent faster than inflation. Obama is good for doubling it.

Anyone else see a problem with this?
