I can't believe they have no updated this error screen. When I got it tonight I felt like I was back at windows 95.

Buying Shoes Online

Does anyone buy shoes online? I never do it as I am so picky about the fit of a shoe. That, and I find they very often don't have my size 13 (46). I was surfing the shoe sales over at gilt.com and found these.

I freakin' love these shoes. Either one would make me happy but both are sold out and not available in my size anyways ;(

I get the feeling I would like a lot of Elia Maurizi shoes.

I seems impossible to believe they are $149 when the retail price is like $500-600. I just wish they had my size.

These last ones would be so nice if I lived somewhere that dry and clean instead wet and dirty. Imagine how disgusting they would be after one week of life in Buffalo. Imagine how nice they would look on white carpet.

Bound Feet Are Insane

I had heard of Chinese bound feet but never realized what exactly it was until I was watching this documentary about Albert Kahn where they had some early 20th century film of women walking with bound feet.

So I looked it up on wikipedia - I just could not believe how totally deforming it was. I thought it was just bound as in toes pulled together or prevented from growing. Instead it is totally broken and reshaped in many ways. It looks kind of like high heels shoes on the outside and kind of like a pig hoof.

It was generally an elder female member of the girl's family or a professional foot binder who carried out the initial breaking and ongoing binding of the feet. This was considered preferable to having the mother do it, as she might have been sympathetic to her daughter's pain and less willing to keep the bindings tight. A professional foot binder would ignore the girl's cries and would continue to bind her feet as tightly as possible. Professional foot binders would also tend to be more extreme in the initial breaking of the feet, sometimes breaking each of the toes in two or three separate places, and even completely dislocating the toes to allow them to be pressed under and bound more tightly. This would cause the girl to suffer from devastating foot pain, but her feet were more likely to achieve the 7 cm (3 in) ideal. The girl was not allowed to rest after her feet had been bound; however much pain she was suffering, she was required to walk on her broken and bound feet, so that her own body weight would help press and crush her feet into the desired shape.



I took this picture from the wiki article references above. It seems hard to imagine this.

The stupidest game ever

I know this is a children's game but what a stupid concept. What is it even teaching them?

St. Patrick's Day 2011

I actually had a great time at the parade. I didn't drink too much, stayed out of fights, and cheered for union workers along side my best friends and a good looking navyman.

The corner of Allen and Delaware was a freakin madhouse. The warm years always are.

Out of all the pics, I think the picture of some random pile of puke and beads in the street really sums up the holiday.

Libya Attack

WASHINGTON - The United States on Saturday unleashed a barrage (110) of Tomahawk missiles against the Libyan regime's air defenses but ruled out using ground troops in what President Barack Obama called a "limited military action"


Here we go again with another war. I can't freakin believe we are attacking Libya. I don't believe this mission is about protecting anyone - its about Britain, France and the US protecting oil. How many fronts can their be? If its about protecting people, where were we in Dafur? The only reason we are there is because there is oil and we need to make sure its safe.

Ladybugs meet lightbulb

Apparently ladybugs big and small love warm halogen light bulbs enough to fry to them.

The Magic of St. Patrick

I saw this poster at city hall the other day. How did the Irish of blackrock think they were going to "take over Canada" and hold it ransom?

They were desrcibed as an irregular army of Irish American invaders

If wish I was there to see it. If there are not reactments of this, we should start one.
