Steve Jobs: Give the man a liver and STFU

I'm no Apple fanboy by any means (I don't own an apple and will never own one, except iPod based products), but Steve Jobs has revolutionized the world with Apple products, and has definitely improved lives of people all across the world. He's created jobs directly and indirectly for countless people. The Apple products of today were spawned partly or fully from his personal vision of what computing and portable computing should be today. Products like Palm Pre wouldn't have come along if the iPhone weren't invented first. There would be no back and fourth competition from microsoft trying to improve operating systems and GUIs. What would the world be like today if it he hadn't come along? Just look at what happened when Steve left Apple, and look at where its headed now with his direction. Apparently, as sad as it is to assume one man could be responsible for so much, he deserves a lot of credit.

Does this make it ok for him to cut in line so he can get a liver so he can continue to do what he does? Yes. I'd rather let Steve snatch away livers from 5 alcoholics who destroyed their livers because they couldn't put down the bottle so they can beat the spouses on a daily basis. He can take every single one of those livers for all I care. Those people will never change the world, Steve will continue to employ people, create jobs, revolutionize technology, and improve lives for every single person that steps in front of any computer based device.

I was able to run 1.5 miles straight, and with a quarter mile break, ran 1.25 miles back. I've finally gone over the invisible hump of not being able to run for more than a mile due to complete exhaustion. On my way back, I felt like I had enough energy to keep running another mile no problem. This is quite an accomplishment for me because getting over the hump always seemed so impossible every time I tried running.

The Deadliest Catch, does it have to be so deadly?

Anyone ever watch the show and think, why can't them make some heavy duty machines to eliminate all those people on deck?

Did you know.... (Orowheat & HFCS)

Orowheat (bread company) removed High Fructose Corn Syrup from all their breads late last year? I guess I'll be buying their bread again. A snafu (using HFCS in the first place) like that probably let Milton's become so much bigger than they were ever intending. Why did they use it in the first place? Other than HFCS being blamed for obesity, HFCS packs more sweetness than other sugars per calorie, and is much cheaper too. Whenever you ate orobread, it mysteriously tasted sweet because of the HFCS.
