10 year old electronics ad
Flashback to 1999
So I thought when Posterous announced that it would be closing that I would just go back to Wordpress…yea that takes too much to maintain and I really wanted to focus on the social aspect of blogging again so I gave in to Tumblr :) Here are some pictures from one of the last posts I had on Wordpress before coming over.
Wherever you are in the contiguous U.S., you will never be more than 107 miles away from the nearest McDonald’s.
Stephen Von Worley set out on a mission to determine the farthest distance between McDonald’s restaurants. With help from AggData, he was able to determine the location of all 13,000 plus U.S. restaurants. From there, a bit of what he calls “software engineering gymnastics,” and voilà, a heat map of the 48 contiguous states, vividly showing the distance to the nearest McDonald’s.
McFarthest is between two tiny Dakotan towns: 107 miles distance from the nearest McDonald’s
- Stephen Von Worley
Von Worley’s impressive visual analysis shows how a McDonald’s restaurant is understandably never far from the major population areas, and typically close to the highways. East of the Mississippi, the lights are ubiquitous. Heading west, there are some noticeable gaps before arriving to the west coast.
The data shows the farthest point between McDonald’s to be the small towns of Meadow and Glad Valley on Highway 20 in NW South Dakota, where the distance is 107 miles between Arches, a mere two hour drive (145 miles) by car.
That leaves you more than enough time to enjoy a McBreakfast in Glad Valley - and a McLunch in Meadow.
omg!NOW has confirmed that Judd Apatow will soon be producing a new Pee-wee Herman movie, which will of course star Paul Reubens as his beloved character, Pee-wee Herman. Reubens is currently voicing Pavel, a character for the animated Disney XD series Tron: Uprising, but expects to start filming the new Pee-wee Herman film afterwards. Previous Pee-wee movies include Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985) and Big Top Pee-wee (1988).

How am I just now hearing about this?!
My sister sent me a video of my nephew Dexter dancing on the beach so I had to upload it and share.
I posted the official trailer earlier this week but over dinner with a friend last night it came to my attention that I should try to get a hold of the prologue that showed before select IMAX showings of Mission Impossible 4. Unfortunatly its a little harder to come by than I thought and finding a 100% perfect quality version is damn near impossible. The best I could do is what you see below. Until a better version is available this will have to do. In the meantime, be sure to share with your friends as this might be taken down by “THE MAN” as most have already.P.S. We watched Mission Impossible 4 last night (not the IMAX) and it was awesome!Enjoy! :)
