Wannabe Googlewhack

This is not a Googlewhack!
Hyphenated words aside, everyone knows quotes disqualify any attempt at a Googlewhack!

I thought I had one anyway… and I believe, technically, I do! A Googlewhack is two words, but mine was “scary-world” (hyphenated) followed by “vibe” and, as of this writing, it returns a random bulletin board type post from some gaming forum from 4 years ago—and the poster didn’t even hyphenate! my “scary world vibe” begins with a hyphenated “scary-world”, so I was REALLY feeling (strongly) like this was, in fact, a legitimate Googlewhack.

I was (still am as of this post) writing a post about the 1968 riots and my Mom and I (we were there) with some comparison/contrast to the situation now in June 2020. In that piece (again, not finished yet) I am thinking of using “scary-world vibe” in comparing the riots of 1968 and the riots of June 2020 to a moment when I was working right near where I was born shortly after having moved back to the DC area from NYC just after 9/11 (because of how shaken everyone was from that event).

But alas, I used quotes. I should have remembered. Back when I anyone who was smart and tried long enough could actually get an occasional Googlewhack, everyone knew that you could NOT use quotes. I did. It was still a blip of geek-excitement—just long enough to take the screenshots and start a fresh post!

Okay, back to the long story about me and DC during multiple riots… stay tuned!

The Trump Way

Meanwhile, only a block away from the White House and the Trump Hotel in DC, as I was giving a Lyft passenger a ride to GW this morning…

Speed Camera Warnings

The finite bureaucratic genius that runs “DCP” (the local police department of our nations capitol) has to send warnings only for the first 30 days a speed camera is relocated. The whole process and procedure of it all is just an insult to everyone involved. I mean, even the poor cops have to go out and maintain these machines as part of their job!

I had an awesome experience dealing with Apple today

I had an awesome experience dealing with Apple today at the brand new Georgetown Apple Store location. My phone wouldn’t work in iPhone mode (only speaker or bluetooth) and it had “Headphones” as an option even though they weren’t plugged in.

They gave me a new phone.

Satisfied? You bet!

Near Northeast

Near Northeast

One of my customers is opening a new bar in a part of DC that has been less than safe for a long, long time. The level of work underway around here can only be described as immense. I see this being a real hotspot once it’s all done.

In these photos, I’m sitting at the red light at 12th & H St. NE, waiting to turn left. Looking left and right, I can envision the street cars that will run here. I’m sure I’ll hop off just a block from here for Sticky Rice.
