Yesterday morning I spend 2 hours and 45 minutes waiting in line at the polls before being able to cast my vote. Throughout the day, the wait timed exceeded 4 hours. So then because The Boss Lady didn't get out of work until 4:30, I went back down to the polls and got in line at 3pm, so she could get her vote in before the polls closed at 7pm. I spent 2 more hours in line for her before she got home, come to find out later that once you're in line they have to let you vote. After grabbing something to eat, I made one final drive past my polling place around 8:30 last night, and there was still a line of people waiting to vote going out as far as the two-hour-marker. So I suspect some of them didn't make it back from voting until well after 11pm, which is completely fucking crazy. By the time I went to bed around 10:30 last evening, the results weren't in yet so I drifted off to sleep not knowing who the next Prez was going to be. And I dunno if other states had these little Asian guys doing the counting or what, but when I woke up at 1:30 this morning to check the polls, the election had already been declared for Obama, with Florida being the only state still listed as grey/still counting. Either way, I guess we all have to deal with it. And if nothing else, now that the the election is over, we can all go back to being domestic terrorists. What's that? You want to run for President? Well, you better be able to pull some serious money, out of your ass. I think it another tax dodger -- Wesley Snipes -- who once said, some motherfuckers always try to ice skate uphill.
Peekaboo is a game played with babies. In the game, the older player hides his/her face, pops back into the baby's view, and says "Peekaboo!" sometimes followed by "I see you!" Peekaboo is thought by developmental psychologists to demonstrate an infant's inability to understand object permanence, which is the understanding that an object continues to exist, even when one cannot see it or touch it. Object permanence is an important stage of cognitive development for infants. Numerous tests regarding it have been done, usually involving a toy, and a crude barrier which is placed in front of the toy, and then removed, repeatedly. Psychologist Jean Piaget conducted experiments with infants which led him to conclude that this awareness was typically achieved at eight to nine months of age.
Bond girls with guns -- Grace Jones still gives me nightmares, but Olga Kurylenko makes them go away. After this ex-Marine was medically discharged, he took to making his own guns. I'd like to know how he made out, does anyone know?
Ernie, Most parents will do anything to help their kids do well in school. Since we have two teenage boys, I am naturally concerned for their education and well being. I showed this study to my wife and thought it was worth a try. She selfishly disagrees. Bret

You might not recognize the name TR Building & Remodeling, Inc. -- no, they didn't build the Brooklyn Bridge -- but if things like this amazing garage continue to surface, they might become a household name soon enough. As you can see in the above photos, it's all done in a rustic, log-cabin style, but that visually-appealing exterior belies the high-tech workings underneath. Among the garage's state of the art features is a platform that descends into the floor, taking your automobile to a lower level of the garage. It's basically one step removed from the Batcave. There isn't much info on who the owner is, but whoever it is sure is lucky, as he has himself one hell of a man cave, not to mention the fancy automobiles he has stored within it.
