Bullet Time

In no particular order, tell 'em what's up, Rocky!

  • University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan is up for the Heisman Trophy and will be in New York on Saturday to lose the trophy to either Tim Tebow or Darren McFadden. If he didn't win the Heisman last year, he's sure not going to win it this year. It's the curse of the WAC.

  • Speaking of the curse of the WAC, Hawaii has hit the NCAA's glass ceiling. They could go 12-0 again next year and still not get any higher than number 10. It's all supposedly about "strength of schedule". The "major" conference teams like Michigan won't play Hawaii because they don't want to take the loss. I don't want to hear about strength of schedule; you play the teams that will play you.

  • I honestly do not understand people who can listen to Beavis' doublethink on the National Intelligence Estimate regarding Iran's nuclear program (example: The reports that says that Beavis is wrong, wrong, wrong proves that Beavis is right) and say "Yeah, makes perfect sense to me."

  • Of course, what do I expect? These are the same people who said that the fact that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction proved that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

  • Seriously. You could not make these people up. If you tried, no editor in the world would buy it. "Nobody is THAT stupid," the editors would say.

  • Let me add my voice to the chorus: The BCS division needs to move a playoff system, the eleven conference champions plus five at-large. The only drawback to this idea is that it would put a lot of "BCS experts" out of work. How do we know this will succeed? The other NCAA football divisions already do this, and the world has not ended.

  • No, really. Beavis just continues to amaze; every day a person wakes up and says "He cannot POSSIBLY get stupider" and he always manages to pull it out in the end.

  • I haven't talked about "Heroes" much this season. I enjoyed it--but man, Hiro is one cold S.O.B.

Finally, here's a video for my homies from way, way back. And for my sister and brother-in-law. CHECKERS AND POGO!


  • Y'know, I'm actually starting to think that calling the Chimperor "Beavis" is an insult to Beavis. Beavis, after all, is neither interested in nor capable of the level of deception that the Chimperor has displayed. Nor does he have the powers of conceptualization necessary to cause mayhem on the Chimperor's global level. Beavis causes chaos and misery *around* him as he moves through his day. And that is all. He would not be able to get his mind around the concept "Let's wreck Iraq and take its oil for money." There are far too many abstractions in that sentence for Beavis. Finally, although Beavis is very mean, he's temperamentally a sub. He bottoms to Butt-head, as in their Christmas episode where Butt-head has no trouble making Beavis endure the role of reindeer, complete with bit. The Chimperor, on the other hand, is harshly dominating.

    Although I will admit that they do share the same sinister gleam of malevolent excitability.

  • I assume you're referring to Hiro dumping Adam off in a coffin. If I'm invincible Adam, how hard is it for me to get out of a coffin? My fingertips will grow back immediately, and presumably I won't die of hunger or thirst. Sure, it might take twenty years, but it's doable.

  • I wonder about the oxygen situation in the coffin. What does oxygen deprivation do to Adam or to Claire?

    Another powers run in families? Matt and his dad both have the same power. Does that mean that Adam is Claire's ancestor?

  • Yeah, but Nathan and Wes have the same power, too. (Unless Nathan is both Wes and Claire's real dad, in an awesome Luke and Leia-type scenario).

    Also, Hiro said he did not kill Adam, just put him somewhere that he can't hurt anyone. So at least Hiro assumes that Adam won't suffocate. I guess he could be wrong, and I predict we'll find out...
