Which Road Sign Would Best Symbolize Your Life?

So far, at least.

And why?

And what road sign would you like to describe the rest of your life?

Interesting little exercise I came up with for myself in writing a haiku. Besides the thought required, it could also be interesting for writing exercises, whether English as a first, second, or foreign language.

The road sign best symbolizing my life so far is…

Obama’s Barackets Still in Top 8% of Entries After Day 2

After Day 2, President Obama’s Barackets are slightly busted like the majority of entries. However, they’re still plenty good to be ahead or tied with 91.8% of entries after Day 2. That tie includes my entry. However, I have a slight probability edge among points remaining in that I didn’t lose a team slotted to make it to the Elite 8, like the POTUS did with Duke.

My ESPN Brackets

President Obama’s Barackets

All this so far is great for having lots of teams left, and higher probability that you can get the remaining games right if it were a straight lottery (i.e. more tickets than others). However, it isn’t a straight lottery, and the stakes now double per game in the next few days in the Round of 32, at 20 points per game instead of 10 for the Round of 64. So things can go up or down hill REAL fast!

Let’s get it on!

X-men First Class: Are You Ready?

June 3rd is when the next X-men movie is due out. (official site)

X-men First Class is set during the 1960s,  and focuses on the relationship between Professor X and Magneto, as well as the origin of their groups, the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants.

I don’t know about… but I’m so freakin’ excited I might mutate into something soon if the Earth doesn’t turn fast enough to get to June 3rd!

I’ll be sure to have a collection of X-men wallpapers made from the movie. I already have over 150 X-men wallpapers for many monitor sizes on my site if you’d like some, with the images coming from the previous 4 X-men movies.

I also have over 200 printable 6×4 postcard sized photos of those X-men wallpapers to take your love of the X-men with you beyond your computer screen.

Also check out my X-men backgrounds for iPhones and Blackberries (as well as Palm, HTC and other smart phones).

I can’t wait, man! Can you???

p.s. What’s with the release date of June 3, 2011? 6.3.11 has 6+3 and 11 or 9/11.

President Barack Obama

Please click here to see how the Barackets are doing against the nation after Round 2.

After Round 1 of the 2011 NCAA March Madness Tournament, President Barack Obama’s safe “presidential style” Barackets is beating 11,336 of about six million brackets, or about 99.8% of them!

Da Prez is where he is after Round 1 by predicting 28 of 32 correct picks in the round! That’s 3 better than where he was at this point in 2010.
