“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” - George W. Bush

All The Best


I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

Daytona Bike Week 2011

Wow! Bike week. What can I say? The only tits and ass I saw were on girls that served drinks, which I had to pay for. Why? Because bikers are old and cheap. And what's up with the pussy lite beer? I thought I was in Daytona at bike week not Orlando at Magic Kingdom.

The only thing I got out of bike week was a compelling taste for New Orleans. Don't get me wrong I had a blast with awesome people and would definitely go back. I just thought it would be more crazy than lazy.

There's always Tennessee.


  1. .

    The commercial on the Youtube video reminded me, I see that major industrial facilites in Japan are down as a result of the quake.

    Toyota, Honda, Toshiba, Sony, etc. all have major plants down.

    Gag Reflex,

    I was scrolling through some recent posts and saw you got married.


    As the Irish would say, "May you live long and may you wear it out."


  5. .

    They say that behind every great man there is a suprised woman.


  6. Congratulations and Best Wishes, Gag.

    I am glad to hear that you "married up."

  7. Mel, you sound as if Bike Week was a disappointment.

  8. My cousin said compared to years before it was very calm. She hasn't been to Daytona in quite a few years and said there wasn't nearly as many bikes as in the past.

    The only rules applied were no colors, no knives, and no guns. Now every rule applies.

  9. I had a good time. It was fun.

  10. That would definitely be a trip with my two partners in crime.

  11. These photos of the aftermath in Japan are mind boggling.

    The scale of destruction is unbelievable and the Japanese gov't is now saying that at 10K are dead.

  12. It looks like this coastal town may have subsided

    If so, this is what Memphis TN could look like after a big one.

  13. President Obama, First Lady Call for United Front Against Bullying

    (AFTER the Wisconsin debacle, mind)

  14. I would think that the incidence of bullying rises as society coarsens although I believe children have always been exceptionally cruel.

    The President might have some deep seated issues wrt bullying. He was afterall, a childhood victim.

  15. I think we had a look at how the world as we know it will end. One day the probability curve will catch up with us and an asteroid large enough to recycle the biospere will do just that.


  16. It happened before and we ended up with this.

  17. 8: Number of feet the coast of Japan moved eastward.
    4: Number of inches the Earth's axis shifted.
    160: Number of aftershocks in the first 24 hours, most of them with a magnitude of at least 5.0.
    59 feet: How much tectonic plates slipped.
    6 miles: How far inland some of the tsunami waves reached.
    "At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," a geophysicist with the US Geological Survey tells CNN.

  18. We can only speculate as to what life on earth was like preceding the asteroid that created the moon.

  19. There is no reason that it could not have existed before.

  20. Interesting news:

    P.J.Crowley is leaving the State Department after "stepping in it" earlier this week with Bradley Manning comments.

  21. We can only speculate as to what life on earth was like preceding the asteroid that created the moon.

    The Japan quake with HAARP was only a dry run. Next Bush will create a second moon.

  22. It never rains but it pours:

    A volcano in southwestern Japan erupted Sunday after nearly two weeks of relative silence, sending ash and rocks up to four kilometres (two and a half miles) into the air, a local official says.

  23. The Tsunami wave was 1 foot 7 inches in Washington State. Oprah makes the ocean go up higher than that when she swims at Malibu beach.

    Oprah has to get twelve carbon credits every time she farts.
