protesting how they see it at the buck

I guess that’s the way they see it? 🙂

I have a problem with this cup too. I’ve gotten used to reading inspirational, motivationl and thought provoking the way I see it quotes when I drink my tea (I finally quit coffee a few years ago). Now, when I look for the quotes, I’m left with the mermaid. I’ve never gotten the same reaction as the group in this story, but I miss those quotes!

Group finds Starbucks logo too hot to handle

[A Christian group based in San Diego] says the new image “has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute,” Mark Dice, founder of the group, said in a news release. “Need I say more? It’s extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves Slutbucks.”

Twitter: Are You Old School?

2554 here. 

 
joelaz:

Are you an old school or new school Twitter user? Twitter user ID’s appear to be assigned sequentially, meaning a lower number indicates that the user joined the service relatively early. To find your user ID, visit your timeline on Twitter, click the RSS feed link, and look for a number in the URL. For example, my feed uses this URL:

http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/917.atom

So, I was the 917th person to create an account on Twitter (back in October 2006 when it was called Twttr.com).

What’s your number?

Can You Catch Up on Lost Sleep?

I guessed correctly. I should never read the articles and just write what I think here to save time. My problem is the intensity of sleep. I rarely sleep more than 4-5 hours in a row, I wake at a pin drop and I don’t even know why I have a clock radio… oh yeah, it holds my iPod! 🙂

Terrorism as a Tax

Terrorism as a Tax

The new fear tax falls most heavily on the United States. Last November, the Commerce Department reported a 17 percent decline in overseas travel to the United States between Sept. 11, 2001, and 2006. (There are no firm figures for 2007 yet, but there seems to have been an uptick.) That slump has cost the country $94 billion in lost tourist spending, nearly 200,000 jobs and $16 billion in forgone tax revenue — and all while the dollar has kept dropping.
