Random thoughts from a couple of busy days:

So, you know Daniel Hauser, the Hodgkins lymphoma kid from southern Minnesota who’s on the run with his mother? They left their farm late Monday night, and were supposedly spotted in southern California early Tuesday morning, according to news reports.

How come nobody has asked how they got there? According to Google, that’s a roughly 35-hour drive, assuming no construction, little traffic, and no stops. And why on earth would you take the kid to Mexico, for crying out loud? He can’t read or write English, I’m sure he doesn’t speak a freaking word of Spanish.

My bet: They’re hiding with friends on an Indian reservation somewhere in southern Minnesota. That would, technically, fit the father’s statement about them no longer being in the country, yes?

Totally unrelated, but it came up in conversation the other day, and seemed strange, interesting, and potentially worrisome: Are vegans allowed to practice oral sex? Inquiring minds, and all that.

Evidently, the British government is reluctant to spend money to preserve Bletchley Park. To judge from the article, Bletchley must have be quite the romantic little workplace, as quite a number of people evidently met their future spouses there.

Coming soon – supposedly, hah! – the five-dimensional DVD, storing over a terabyte of data. Because, you know, accidentally scratching, cracking, or losing a couple gigabytes of data just wasn’t enough…
