No More Racket

I just had a baby wake up because I went to For some insane reason Forbes decided that audio which automatically plays on their website was a good idea. It never is. Most of the time a website makes any noise I immediately hit the back button and I am sure I am not the only one. Usually I avoid this entirely by turning my speakers off, but they happened to be on so now I am staying up late.

Some good came of this though. I searched for ways to disable all sound on websites. I came up with a wonderful program called flashblock. It makes you press a play button before flash content will start. I haven't tested it on many pages but it sure shut up Forbes.


I just became aware that two dollar bills are still being printed and in active circulation. I had not seen one in at least fifteen years. I am really not sure if this is common knowledge or not, but since I thought that these bills were taken out of circulation and no longer printed I suspect other people did.

So I walked into the bank, sure enough they had ten of them in the branch I had entered. I took them all. I will pass them on to the youngest cashiers I can find in the hopes that they have never seen them and amusing things will happen.

Baby Junk Food

I never realized just much baby food is really junk food. Apparently the add sugar and refined grains to everything seems to be common in every type of food you buy these days.

Oh well, at least I got to write an angry review about Gerber Puffs.
