________(adjective) than Usual
Vertigo Chuck

I feel like summer is finally here. We aren't getting the spring rainstorms, we aren't getting the spring fever, we aren't even getting the spring cleaning. Well maybe I am a little bit, but I feel like I'm always cleaning. I'm having a fun time working on curriculum for the next three weeks. I'm teaching a few kids robotics. It is going to be fun, but a lot of work for me. I'm not a work-a-holic, but I seem to be acting like one this summer. Like most people during the end-of-the-year holidays. There are just endless parties, but it isn't like you party that hard all the time amirite? It doesn't seem like you could call it binging, but I guess it probably is. Binge partying is all the rage

I am definitely a geek. That picture is of me swinging from two phonebooks leafed together. Yeah, just like Mythbusters used to make. A physicist by trade, I don my mask and head out into the night partying hard and consuming various social lubricants.

Join me at my quiz and I will try to swoon you with my dulcet tones of vector calculus and Star Wars references. If you are really lucky, catch me with my Rubik's cube and I will get rid of its entropy faster than takes a grown man (or woman) to change a toilet paper roll (or paper towel roll)1.

On an Even Keel
Vertigo Chuck

Air conditioning is the best invention to ever hit the market in summer. It is practically better than Water World. In the building that I'm working in over the summer, there is pretty much no air conditioning. There probably is, but I am convinced that the temperature difference between here and outside is just because the building insides are in the shade. Air conditioning takes away all of that nasty humidity that is outside. It is way to wet to do anything right now. I'd rather be cold and wear a jacket than be hot without anything I can do about it.   I keep on finding cat hair everywhere. It is probably related to the heat. I don't know where they come from (probably

Too Close to Call
Vertigo Chuck

There is something to be said about trapeze artists. They fly through the air without a care in the world. Actually they probably have a lot of cares. I wonder how many times they think to themselves,"please don't fall," or, "make sure to catch me." I personally don't know any of them to ask. If any of you know of a trapeze artist, please ask them those simple questions that they probably hear all the time. Speaking of something you don't hear very often any more, "do you want fries with that?" Have you ever heard that recently at any kind of fast food place? I certainly haven't. It's usually "what can we make for you today" to try to convince you that their ingredients are fresh. I tell you

A Matched Set
Vertigo Chuck

There is always something about drinking beer when you are anxious that makes your brain go a million miles an hour without stopping anywhere. I was totally nervous about buying a new car. Would the one that I'm looking at be on the lot still tomorrow? Is it really the car that I want? Is it really the color that I want? Am I sure I don't want the yellow one? Yes. Even though it has all the extra features? Yes. I finally upped and bought one today. I am a card-holding car owner now. Fear my wrath, and watch me drive 3 miles away from any obstacle. Maybe 4. Yeah 4. I'm not going to post a picture on here because I decided to. I'm not going to tell you what it is either for the same reason.   Next

Inside Information
Vertigo Chuck

School's out for summer. Not the song, but the statement since yesterday really was my last day of school. Granted it was a teacher work day with very few students, it was still a day of work. I celebrated at the bar with friends. That is always a good way to celebrate. Afterword, I got fro-yo. There is this Yogurtland on Grant and Speer that is open until 11pm. It is right next to the Cosmo's that is also open crazy late. The only thing better than drinking with friends is fro-yo with friends. One of my students was confused when I talked about fro-yo. He didn't know what it was. Poor guy was the odd one out when it came to fro-yo. All of his friends knew. Thus ends my frozen yogurt story.   Got

And Knowing is Half the Battle
Vertigo Chuck

Every other team was expecting Friends of Larry to be there last night. Well, at least two other teams were expecting them to be there. First you have Enemies of Larry. They might have done better than Friends of Larry if they had been there, but that is moot (we could debate it all day without going anywhere). The other completely unrelated team is The Friend of my Enemy is Friends of Larry. That name is initially convoluted. Let me simplify it for you. Larry is friends with my enemy. The strange part of both of these names is the fact that

Perpetually Late
Vertigo Chuck

There is something to be said about spring cleaning. You get to open up your living space and take away garbage that you had been promising yourself that you would get rid of for a long time. Maybe you only promised for a little bit of time, but you still need to get rid of it. This is the day that you really appreciate when the trash truck comes to pick up your refuse, whatever weekday that is. Perhaps you are "smarter" and take all of that corrugated cardboard from GWD supply boxes to the recycle center. Don't forget those CFLs. Take those to a hardware store. I know you can recycle the FLs there, but I wonder if you can recycle the CFLs

Two Roads Diverged on a Skeeball Lane
Vertigo Chuck

Good news everyone! GWD has a fantastic new website that looks exactly the same as it did before. The difference? I'm glad you asked. The difference is that the blog system is completely new. From the way it looks though, we might not have an ability to post any more gifs, but I'm trying to work that one out. I write all my blog posts in HTML, and it looks like that will need to change too. Change is tough, but we can get through it. Now it is time we see what this new upload system can do (the changeover is another reason why this blog post is so late. I hope you don't get too mad about it. I've been trying my best).

Never enough Broccoli
Vertigo Chuck

Never enough Broccoli I mixed it up today. I ended up getting a pizza instead of a burger. Their pizzas are tasty eats. I should probably get a large and take some home or share it with you quizzors. Or just take it home and not share it with you quizzors like the selfish, self-centered person that I am. Yep, I think I'll go with the second one. Sausage and black olives all the way. I have never been an anchovy kind of person because I'm not really a canned fish person. Like tuna. I'm probably the only person I know that doesn't like tuna out of a can. Maybe I am an alien.

Not dust in the wind, but dust with the air. It would be too close to a song lyric that way. It could be the tiredness too. Yeah, probably the tiredness. Lethargy.

Threatening Time Travel The weather is nice today. We get a two day grace period for our blogs instead of one day now, so that is why I am coming to you so late in the week. The snow is nice. We needed a snowstorm since March was so dry. We also have a thunderstorm coming. Something that I haven't seen that I want to see is thundersnow. Thundersnow is apparently so rare that the editor doesn't know what it means. It means death from above while concealed in a thick blanket of blizzard. Maybe something like a tornado of snow.

Tuesday Night The TouchTunes makes a horrible backdrop for photos. The Pub on Pearl is such an amazing venue, wallpapered with TVs that cast glare on photos. The giant screen behind me combined with the TouchTunes generated a JJ Abrams-like glare that you would see in the cheesiest of science fiction movies (Yes. I said cheesy). Congratulations to Help! We are Lost in the Alps for being the team with the guts to stand just in that spot. Complete focused backlight would be fun for these photos. That way you have fun silhouette images of teams.

Looking for Transportation in All the Wrong Places Good news! I can't remember any bad news! I know that it is April 1st today, but technically this blog is about last night, so we won't incorporate any pranks or jokes simply on principle (and because I wasn't prepared for it). It is my spring break, so I have a lot to get done that I can't usually do. For example, pull out Mass Effect again and play through it. It turns out that if you don't start from ME1, then you get really bad consequences in the later games. I didn't kill Wrex because he is awesome. You start the game in the middle, and Wrex

Why Not Have Both?
Vertigo Chuck

Why Not Have Both? Don't you feel special when Pandora says that they have added music just for you. No one else gets that treatment. No one else. It makes you feel like you are doing something right, even though all it is is Pandora tagging songs to your profile. Sure, they might be finding songs, and you only might be going onto the site twice a month, but it is still fun. Then you listen to the new music, and you don't like it at all. Then you down-vote it, it goes away for good, and you curse Pandora for not knowing the difference between House and dubstep. It is pretty easy to tell between Paul Oakenfold

Green apple and Pizza Why isn't the interest rate on out daylight savings higher? 4 years and all we get is a day. They don't even give us an extra day on the weekend. Oh no. They add it to the week like it was always there. I have a friend that was born on the 29th of February. We all wondered why she could legally drive at 4 years old, although if I remember correctly, she didn't get her license until she was 4½ years old. Apparently there is a loophole in the whole age thing when it comes to leap years. Since years are 365.24 days, every century, we take the leap year off. Because there are more numbers
