Somehow I'm Old

Laughed my butt off when I saw this on Facebook:

23 Adult Truths

1. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How on earth are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind-of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Light than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

23. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important. (Ladies.....Quit Laughing)

I'm Not Dead

But you'd never know it by reading this blog, eh?

To Whom It May Concern

The recent use of AIT and pat-downs has raised a serious concern for me as an airline customer. The level of invasion dictated by these procedures does not provide an acceptable increase in my personal security in exchange. Further, my inability to opt out of both procedures without incurring a fine makes it impossible for me to stand up for my rights as an American citizen. How can we, as a nation, not see how personal privacy is violated, victims of sexual crimes are harassed, and religious persons are told that their God doesn't exist at TSA checkpoints?

Regrettably, my family and I find that we may be forced to find alternative means of transportation if these invasive measures are not removed. As airline customers, it is these companies that will ultimately suffer the long-term effects of the TSA chasing Rights-defending Americans out of the skies. I have sought to add my voice to other groups who also find TSA to be violating my rights and will continue to do so. What I hope to learn is what are airlines doing to defend the rights of their customers? Are there groups that the airlines are referring their customers to? And are there alternatives that the public is not being made aware of?

Sincerely,
Gregory Cox

Summer 2010

With a few weeks off from school this summer, my wife and I drove... a lot. In fact, this much:

I don't recommend that many miles in five weeks to anyone, but we did have a ton of fun. Though we are somewhat terrible picture takers, we did get some from Boulder, CO.


While there we got to see a lot of my old haunts, a few friends, and the Pearl Street Mall.




Along the way, we put the car over the 100,000 mile mark.


The place seemed somewhat apropos give the dozens of times that I have seem this mile post over the course of that 100,000 miles.



Through the whole of the trip, we got to see a lot of friends, both mine and my wife's families, and just generally enjoy a lack of schedule for 5 weeks. So, nothing terribly exciting, but a really good break from the mental exercise that is the first year of medical school. Oh, and for those interested, I did shave the osteo-stache.

Viva La Osteo-stache



By way of explanation: apparently the second year students at ATSU have been growing osteo-staches as part of the festivities in welcoming in the new first years. Apparently I decided to join in.
