Sorry class is late, I vowed to sleep in this morning as I am fighting off a sinus infection. Couldn't believe I was this late.

I thought a pukka was a six foot tall rabbit named Harvey.

Obama is such a queer duck, a
Fraud who purports to be pukka
While the right sees the truth
Scores of brain-addled youth
Fall for the lying; Hey sucka!

The data comes from Spreadsheets, a sex activity app that promises to “track your performance between the sheets.”

The app monitors the users’ movement and audio levels, using the phone’s accelerometer and microphone.

I have to wonder at the sample. Who loads an app on their phone knowing that it is going to use the microphone to listen to them?

Do you doubt this company has a disk full of sex moises somewhere?

And where does one wear the phone so that its internal accelerometers can be used?

The mind boggles.

I hope you get to feeling better-

I still have a necklace of those pukka shells in my jewelry box-are they fashionable again?

Obamacare isn’t a real deal-
It was sold as gospel truth,
The pukka of free coverage
To the dumb and to our youth

But just a trip to the website
To sign up for a policy there
Lists premiums for the coverage
So high they’re enough to scare

Even some gullible applicants
Into paying the fine instead
When the choice is a policy
Or having money to buy bread...

I would guess there are plenty of exhibitionists who will agree in the interest of science, as long as they retain the right to sell the recordings of their erolalia...

Besides, another medal for Sid the Kid. :-)

I imagine they’ll probably play Miller in goal to start the Bronze-medal game at least ... is Howard even ready or available to play?

I hope the boys get some goals in this game to back him up – tough to win any game when you don’t score.

I'm a little surprised at the local sports cognoscenti – many of the talking heads maintain that Quick has to play tomorrow, because a medal is at stake & you don't want to go through the entire stretch of games w/o any medal. Trying not to be a homer here, but what do you folks think?

Quick didn’t fail miserably, so I think you stick with him.

Do you want to be the coach who loses the bronze because he brought in a different goalie?

That was pretty much the crux of their arguments, which are valid points. Plus you don’t want to disrupt any chemistry that has developed in the locker room to this point. We’ll always have the chance to second-guess Bylsma later tomorrow, but it shouldn’t come to that vs. FIN ;)

I’m rooting for my team’s captain now. He is smoking hot out there. I heard that annoying announcer say “Weber’s shot hits the glass! Is the glass okay?” Am I the only one who cannot stand that guy’s commentary? He knifed it, he finessed it, give me a break buddy and get a dictionary.
