Skeletons

Skeletons are really skinny. People say that I'm skinny, but have they ever seen a skeleton? Compared to a skeleton, I'm like He-Man... except I'm black, I have a better haircut and I wear more clothes (most of the time). Also, people say that I'm just skin and bones (very untrue), but skeletons don't even have skin. If you think my shoulder is bony and uncomfortable to lean on, I'd like to see you try to lean on someone in a world full of skeletons. So... yeah, to anyone who thinks I'm too skinny (especially the swarms of drunks in Tempe who always advise me to "eat a sandwich"), you should meet a skeleton.

Regular-sized me:

facebook birthdays

If you expect to see someone on their birthday, do you still need to post on their facebook wall? It seems like overkill. It seems weird to call someone on their birthday (not just because my phone is broken) if you plan to hang out with them later that day, so I'm going to assume that facebook works the same way.

Doodles from Class



This is basically what PHI 305 is like



This is my PHI 333 professor


p.s. don't take these too seriously. PHI 305 was actually a pretty good class, but PABLO 105 is an awful room.

p.p.s. I'm not sure why all of my writing is underlined

Analogies Gone Wild!

I just watched Nike's video promoting the new LunarGlide+ 3 running shoe and they used an analogy to describe every single piece of technology. I realize that this video's target audience probably has a very limited understanding of the terms and concepts associated with running shoes, but do they really think pictures of swing sets and trampolines will help them? Have they really lost faith in their consumers' ability to comprehend foreign concepts without the use of supplemental playground imagery? Was Nike's advertising department outsourced to Sesame Street? It's one thing to use a helpful analogy accompanied by a visual aide every once in a while, but to use them this much is annoying and insulting... but don't take my word for it:

In conclusion, I think this advertisement fails at entertaining and properly informing me about Nike LunarGlide+3... It's kind of like how the kid in this video fails at doing complex gymnastics moves on a playground swing set:
See what I did there?
