Kuma wearing a santa cap, originally uploaded by gserafini.

This is pretty awesome. To add a Santa cap to any picture in Flickr, just create a note with this text: “ho ho ho hat” and the Santa hat will magically appear.

Slashdot | Slashdot Posting Bug Infuriates Haggard Admins Nov 9 2006


Last night we crossed over 16,777,216 comments in the database. The wise amongst you might note that this number is 2^24, or in MySQLese an unsigned mediumint. Unfortunately, like 5 years ago we changed our primary keys in the comment table to unsigned int (32 bits, or 4.1 billion) but neglected to change the index that handles parents. We’re awesome! Fixing is a simple ALTER TABLE statement… but on a table that is 16 million rows long, our system will take 3 hours to do it, during which time there can be no posting. So today, we’re disabling threading and will enable it again later tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience. We shall flog ourselves appropriately.

Vote Republican and keep these awesomely INSANE TSA rules in place! Oct 16 2006

TSA: Republican Fear Machine

I am not making this shit up. This is not a post from the The Onion. This is an actual, U.S. taxpayer funded policy, implemented by the Republicans to “protect” us from… our fresh breath?

You can now bring toothpaste on board an airplane, in the United States, AS LONG AS YOU PUT IT IN A SMALL PLASTIC BAG before you go through the TSA screening checkpoint. If it is NOT in a baggie, then they will confiscate your toothpaste.


Quoting from the TSA’s site:

Travelers may now carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3 ounces or less) that fit comfortably in ONE, QUART-SIZE, clear plastic, zip-top bag.

This is insanity. Vote Republican if you want more of your expensive cosmetics confiscated because it’s not in a FUCKING BAGGIE.

I asked the screener lady if she thought, personally, that this policy makes sense. She told me, “We get briefed daily by Washington. We know things, and there’s a good reason for this.” I’m sure they do get briefed daily. The TSA is part of the developing fascist police state that is America now.

TSA ‘s official page about their absurd baggie rule

What’s next? Proper papers to pass? Only certain, party-approved and loyal passengers allowed to fly or travel? We’re quickly getting there.

This is madness. Total madness.

I’m the #9 Gabriel out of 107,000,000 on Google! Sep 28 2006

Pictures from California Trip

I may qualify as the biggest dork ever. Inspired by the #1 Matt on Google, I set out on a single-handed campaign to break into the top 10 results for my name.

As of today, out of 107,000,000 total results, I’m currently #9. Nerd points galore for me huh. w00t.

Check for yourself: Google Search for “Gabriel”

And if / when I drop back down to the depths of search engine obscurity, you can say “I knew him when he was the #9 result on Google…” Looking at the remainder of the other important Gabriels, it seems that I may be able to climb a couple places higher. It will probably be tough to get higher than the #1 Gabriel – Gabriel shocks though. They do own and whatnot. But, here’s to trying anyways… 🙂

If you feel like helping out for whatever reason, use this code on your website to link to my site:

P.S. The kid in the picture is Jackson Wade Wallace, my good friend Damon‘s awesome little boy from when I was visiting them in California this summer. He’s gonna be famous someday.

digg – Weird Al – Ridin’ Dirty (White & Nerdy) (+lyrics) Sep 9 2006

Superfine new mp3 out by Weird Al that shows his nerdcore skills go deep. And it is hilarious. And a great listen. 5 stars.

Listen: White & Nerdy (mp3 file)

White & Nerdy
Parody of “Ridin'” by Chamillionaire
New lyrics by Al Yankovic

They see me mowin’
My front lawn
I know they’re all thinking I’m so white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
Can’t you see I’m white and nerdy?
Look at me, I’m white and nerdy
I wanna roll with
The gangstas
But so far they all think I’m too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
I’m just too white and nerdy.
Really really white and nerdy.

First in my class here at MIT
Got skills, I’m a champion at D&D
MC Escher – that’s my favorite MC
Keep your 40, I’ll just have an Earl Grey tea
My rims never spin, to the contrary
You’ll find that they’re quite stationary
All of my action figures are cherry
Steven Hawking’s in my library
My MySpace page is all totally pimped out
Got people beggin’ for my top eight spaces
Yo, I know pi to a thousand places
Ain’t got no grills but I still wear braces
I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise
I’m a whiz at Minesweeper – I could play for days
Once you see my sweet moves you’re gonna stay amazed
My fingers’ movin’ so fast I’ll set the place ablaze
There’s no killer app I haven’t run
At Pascal, well I’m number one
Do vector calculus just for fun
I ain’t got a gat but I got a soldering gun
Happy Days is my favorite theme song
I could sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong
I’ll ace any trivia quiz you bring on
I’m fluent in JavaScript as well as Klingon

They see me roll on
My Segway
I know in my heart they think I’m white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
Can’t you see I’m white and nerdy
Look at me, I’m white and nerdy
I’d like to roll with
The gangstas
Although it’s apparent I’m too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
I’m just too white and nerdy
How’d I get so white and nerdy

I’ve been browsin’, inspectin’
X-Men comics, you know I collect ’em
The pens in my pocket, I must protect ’em
My ergonomic keyboard never leaves me bored
Shopping online for deals on some writable media
I edit Wikipedia
I memorized Holy Grail really well
I can recite it right now and have you ROTFLOL
I got a business doing websites
When my friends need some code, who do they call?
I do HTML for ’em all
Even made a homepage for my dog
Yo, I got myself a fanny pack
They were havin’ a sale down at The Gap
Spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap
Pop, pop, hope no one sees me
Gettin’ freaky
I’m nerdy in the extreme
And whiter than sour cream
I was in AV Club and Glee Club and even the Chess Team
Only question I
Ever thought was hard
Was do I like Kirk
Or do I like Picard
Spend every weekend at the Renaissance Fair
Got my name on my underwear

They see me strollin’
They laughin’
And rollin’ their eyes ’cause I’m so white and nerdy
Just because I’m white and nerdy
Just because I’m white and nerdy
All because I’m white and nerdy
Holy cow, I’m white and nerdy
I wanna bowl with
The gangstas
But, oh well, it’s obvious I’m white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white and nerdy
I’m just too white and nerdy
Look at me, I’m white and nerdy

Super great video of 200 liters of Diet Coke + over 500 Mentos to create Bellagio fountain effect! Jun 4 2006

Mentos + Diet Coke experiement

The Extreme Diet Coke & Mentos Experiments:

What happens when you combine 200 liters of Diet Coke and over 500 Mentos mints? It’s amazing and completely insane.

The first part of this video demonstrates a simple geyser, and the second part shows just how extreme it can get. Over one hundred jets of soda fly into the air in less than three minutes.

It’s a hysterical and spectacular mint-powered version of the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, brought to you by the mad scientists at

Really neato!
