I want to personally thank everyone thats celebrating Cinco De Mayo today. Its a holiday that really means alot to me. To see all the local Mexican restaurants celebrating with me is heart warming.

Of course I’m taking about the day just 3 short years ago today (5/5/05) that I started High Performance Computer Services. I’m fairly surprised that I’ve been able to reach national holiday status already but it really is appreciated.

Over at one of my favorite sites they describe Cinco De Mayo as:

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “5th of May”) is a regional holiday in Mexico, primarily celebrated in the state of Puebla. It is not an obligatory federal holiday.[1][2][3][4][5] The holiday commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.

They dress it up a bit, misspell my name a little (nathan – ignacio..), I’m not really mexican I just tan easily, and the dates off by a few years, but whatever the general gist of it’s there… somewhere.

When I think of Plymouth Rock I think of this:


But apparently this is what you get if you visit Plymouth rock…

Plymouth Rock

For more exciting Plymouth Rock information click here. Seriously though, When you think of Plymouth rock you think of a rock way more awesome than that. Seriously if I was William Bradford I would have been thinking “we can’t land here, we need a rock with awesome written all over it!” I’m not sure were he would have found that rock but man I’m sure he could have come up with something more awesome than that!

I just saw this the other day, I seem to remember seeing it before but it was worth seeing again. Click the thumbnail to view the full image.  I was laughing so hard on the line for December 23 I almost fell out of my chair!

How to get kicked out of k-mart

I was discussing which language is the most common with a few people the other day and some said chinese, some said spainish, and I said english. While most lists show Mandarin Chinese as the #1 language those lists are organized by native speakers.

1.05 billion can speak Mandarin Chinese while 1.5 billion can speak English. Chinese only wins because it has more native speakers, english wins by a mile when considering total speakers. English is also the most dominant language when it comes to different countries with chinese being spoken in 16 countries and English being spoken in 104 countries.

Personally though I think we all need to be learning Ter Sami, apparently only 10 people speak it now. If everyone learned it we could really increase their numbers! What a difference we could make! Might be difficult to learn since it has no written version though…

I heard about this site the other day from so I decided to check it out. Apparently its supposed to be a social network site like facebook or myspace the only difference being that they share advertising revenue with the users. So I figure it’s at least worth a try. I went ahead and saved supercow there in case it gets big! So take a look and if you sign up make sure to use the link below to list me as your referrer.

31 Cent Scoop Night!!

Be excited, be very excited.

So who’s going? We should all go after church Wednesday night. Did we go to this last year or was that a different night? BTW, no taking pictures of me this time!

Btw, bring a dollar for the firefighters.  They need new axes!!!

xkcd techno

Bahahaahaha!!! I’m sending this to trever now…

Me and my friend Trever have this on going debate whether or not techno is actually good. I of course take the side that it is just about 15 seconds worth of work repeated for 5 minutes to an "artistic" fade out. When your listening to music and are reminded of windows 98 because is sounds like the pc locked up and is looping five seconds of the mp3 the way 98 and winamp used too then you know your listening to techno .

sacred cow
I just stumbled upon this collection of photo’s of the sacred cows of India.

I was always under the impression that Hindus saw all cows as sacred but apparently this isn’t universal and only some cows in some area’s are sacred cows . Of course being a Christian I see worshiping any animal or other earthly item as sacreligious so the reverence shown towards a cow seems unusual. This reminds me a lot of the stories Baal in the old testament except their cow was made of gold and was a replacement for God rather than a earthly representation like the sacred cows of India. The cows seem to be some sort of good luck charm. Apparently you can get good luck for the day by feeding them snacks or certain foods at different times of the day. Countries like this seem to be a completely different world away from the USA. The picture of the man that is apparently starving to death next to a sacred cow is especially disturbing.

Want to climb a wall or leap buildings? Me too. I think I’ll get there in just a couple more weeks of these workouts .

I just watched this video on youtube. LOL. I have to admit sometimes me and lily act like this. Reminds me of being little and not having a care in the world! “Do not shoot your meatloaf!!!”
