Things I'm good at Fri, Aug 29, 2008
If all else fails and this whole engineering thing doesn't work out, I've noticed I came preprogrammed with the following skills: 
  1. Destroying things
  2. Washing and stacking dishes to astonishing heights
  3. Serving soft-serve ice cream
  4. Squeegeeing car windshields
It's always good to have options. #psychology

No dog poop Fri, Aug 29, 2008
Similar to the sign seen in Germany is this gem found in North Conway, NH. 

If you look closely, you can see the poop actually coming out of the dog.  Isn't that nice? #nature

Motorized golf pull carts Fri, Aug 29, 2008
I just saw a motorized golf pull cart (like this one) in use on the golf course at work.  A lady hit her ball and started walking towards her bag to put her club away when her bag started moving away from her.  She had a little remote in her hand that made the bag move.  This has to be the laziest product in the history of the universe.  Thankfully it's available for the low-low price of $800, which is practically a steal in my book. 

For people who don't golf, here's a brief history of golf club carrying devices:  First there was the golf bag, which slung over your shoulder and apparently affected your swing after about 14 holes; then there was the pull cart (or push cart, depending on how you use it), which took the weight off your shoulder and had a tendency to roll away when you weren't looking; lastly we have the motorized pull cart, which simultaneously solves a nonexistent problem while also using up extra money that many golfers seem to have weighing them down. #products
