Another quote from Google Personal Homepage

The man of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies but also to hate his friends.
- Friedrich Nietzsche

I really like this statement. I think if you don't have the ability to disagree or approve of anyone, whether friend or foe, then you remove your ability to remain unbiased.

So how do they get Tephlon to stick to the pan?


Turns out they just basically make the pan really rough, then prime the pan with a thin layer of the stuff so that it mechanically sticks, then put another coat on that sticks to the primer and they bake it on to make it more permanent.

Aren't you glad you found out?

Random linkage

Ever wonder if there was a definitive guide on the rules pertaining to calling shotgun while attempting to gain the front passenger seat? Your prayers have been answered.

Beautiful words like defenestrate bring almost as much cheer as throwing stuff out windows.

But what brings me the most cheer is finishing up some nice work on my dad's house building site,, where there are some cool pictures of the process of building houses in Canton, Georgia. A shameless plug? Maybe. A beautiful state, especially where my dad is building? Definitely.
