No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

Steve’s gone and it’s time to party! Let’s see what’s in uncle Steve’s refridgerator.

I’m not quite sure how much a 300 page phone bill costs, but I’m sure the iPhone is the perfect tool for finding out.

Think about how many line items are on a 300 page bill, then consider the minimum time each one must take to complete. The girl in that video can’t possibly have a boyfriend, unless he’s made of iPhones. She’s also obviously malnourished because she’s too busy playing with her iPhone to eat.

Extreme Canoeing

by @ 18:58. Filed under Miscellaneous.

Uncle Steve is up in the boundary waters, where I hear the canoeing is excellent.

I wonder if his trip is as much fun as this looks:

Revisions/extensions (Steve – 1:48 am 8/17/2007) – For some reason, Viper’s Video Quicktags Aaron used for this keeps on resetting the “updated” flag in my reader, so I stuffed the original embed code in. So I break the validation; oh well.

The Kind of Job Robots Will Be Doing Some Day

by @ 21:58. Filed under Business, Sports.

Does your job give you little satisfaction?

Does it fail to challenge you in any way?

Do you have a boatload of benefits?

Do you think the union gives you job security?

Think again.

Sooner or later somebody finds a better way, one that grows business and cuts costs. Even the government is doing it these days.

But in February, the city provided her with help. An automated ranger, if you will, now dispenses day fishing permits. It resembles a ticket machine you might have seen at a trolley stop.

“You press a button for the number of tickets you want, and then you insert payment and get a slip. It prints the date and time,” Felchlin said.

Before the machine was installed, Miramar Reservoir was closed on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. But now the public has the opportunity to fish from shore seven days a week. Besides generating much-needed revenue, the automated ranger is also user-friendly.

Pretty scary huh? The government has figured out that you don’t actually need people to shuffle paper. Before long, they’ll discover that you don’t need paper, either.

So, has our poor ranger friend got a Plan B?

“Even if they programmed this to sell boat permits, they still need someone to issue boats,” Felchlin said.

I wouldn’t bet the farm on it, Lori. Haven’t you seen any of the latest car commercials, with all the fancy robots moving about? Sooner or later somebody is going to program one of them to stack boats. You’re better off studying to be a robot mechanic.

Outstanding Walleye Season

by @ 12:03. Filed under Sports.

Walleye fishing is extremely good this year in Minnesota.

Lake Mille Lacs has been especially hot this year, with anglers catching their 4-fish limit within the lake’s slot limit.

Conservation officers say the fishing has been so good, one group of anglers was caught with 15 walleyes and that is way over the limit. Now those anglers face up to $1,200 in fines.

With any luck, uncle Steve is enjoying the same experience.

How Not to Launch a Boat

by @ 12:00. Filed under Sports.

Gosh, I hope Steve’s trip is going well.

Revisions/extensions (steveegg – 6:32 pm 6/2/2007) – Yep, it went well. ‘Tis good that the Canucks don’t have Jim “Craps” Doyle’s (WEAC/Potawatomi-For Sale) DNR on their docks because we would have been launching daily. Oh, and here’s the embed…

Gone Fishin’

I found a guy who Steve might want to seek fishing advice from this weekend.

Sorry that I couldn’t embed. WordPress still doesn’t like me.

Cho Family Speaks

by @ 19:32. Filed under Miscellaneous.

The family of the Virgina Tech shooter deserves some credit. They haven’t tried to stick up for him.

Their public statement about the tragedy says all the right things and doesn’t read like it came straight from a PR firm. It makes me wonder how Seung-Hui Cho could’ve turned out the way he did.

Don’t forget to pray for this family, too.

Mandatory Virginia Tech Post

by @ 21:36. Filed under Miscellaneous.

I have an unusual observation to share about this Virginia Tech shooting. Maybe it’s nothing, but I think there may be something worth talking about.

What strikes me as odd about this particular tragedy, as opposed to others like it, is that it happened at a college. This takes a whole different level of sicko. Do you see what I’m getting at?

Once you’re in college, you should begin feeling like the master of your own destiny. After skipping a class or two, you should start to realize that you’re not in high school anymore. Nobody is watching over you and you have a lot more freedom, choices, and responsibility. You should realize, deep into your first semester, that you’re an adult now and you are your own boss.

To have that level of pent-up rage at any stage of your life is unfathomable. But, what are you doing wrong if you get to college and still can’t shed your teen angst? There are no excuses for this. I’ll be waiting to see if anyone tries to come up with some.

Jamaican Tour Guide

by @ 16:15. Filed under Miscellaneous.

Since Uncle Steve is going to Jamaica, I figured that he could use a tour guide.

This guy seems perfect for the job.

The Blogsitter is Here

by @ 16:08. Filed under The Blog.


My name is Aaron. I’ll be watching over you for the next few days (with help from Patrick and Fred).

As your blogsitter, consider this your only warning: discipline will be swift and severe. Everybody try to behave, and maybe we’ll watch some dirty movies together. Just don’t tell your parents.
