    One of the complaints from PAC fans has been that SLC is lacking nightlife. That seems to be changing:

    Forbes put out its ranking of all American colleges. The PAC-12 did well, and Utah is right in the middle of the conference:

    1. Stanford
    22. Cal
    34. UCLA
    63. USC
    55. Washington
    101. Colorado
    143. Utah
    211. Arizona
    217. Oregon
    211. Arizona State
    304. Oregon State
    328. Washington State

    Well, FWIW. I was surprised that the PAC schools ranked below us were so...low.

    Our elementary school moved from year round school back to a traditional school this year. My kids are not used to the extra long summer. They may not live to see the first day of school.

    I"m not exactly hip, so maybe this website is old news to everyone here.

    Still, though. It's tons of fun.

    I saw the Batman tail lights on a truck here in the valley a couple of years ago. He had a whole batman theme going on... except for the vehicle itself was a piece of junk flatbed truck instead of a kickass Batmobile. But you have to start somewhere I suppose.

    Come to think of it, I would see that guy and his truck regularly on the freeway, and I haven't seen him recently.

    Today is National Cream-filled Donut Day. Of course that would fall on the day I decided to get serious about losing 15-20 pounds.

    Fortunately, I am not really a donut guy. It would be worse if today were National Ice Cream Day, or French Fries Day, or Chocolate Chip Copies day. Now you all know my dietary Achilles heels.

    This is where I explain the complexity of various names I will call people here from time to time. I do this as a completely good-natured joke, and love to get responses in kind.

    First is designation as a WFB (warthog-faced buffoon). It is actually an honorific, but only in an odd way. When someone I like answers one of my posts in such a manner as to leave me cornered (for example, pointing out an undeniable error on my part, or a point I have simply lost; or makes me laugh; or is just a good sport about something; or simply makes a good, eye-opening point) I resort to the only honorable response left to me: Call the bounder a warthog-faced buffoon.

    warthog_knp-0311_blog.jpg

    If the same WFB catches me a second time, he is designated a miserable, vomitous mass, or "MVM."*

    Most of you have not nailed me yet. Even if you do, it sometimes takes a while for me to admit that.

    This is where I explain the complexity to the theme of the various videos that I post in the random chat thread...

    First is the obvious nature of the random chat involved.

    Second, they probably involve women... and the reason for this is simple, when I am personally involved in random chat it often involves the subject of women.

    Most of you probably didn't realize this... and frankly, I'm not surprised.
