As of 01/14/06, I have started commenting on comments. After reading a post on TJ's site, I realize the importance of feedback for those who have taken the time to visit. Thank you for the eye opener, TJ!
A few of my friends in the Blogiverse have been getting hate comments lately. And all are from the infamous Anonymous. I always say cowards like that just want a rise out of their idiocy. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it. And if you feel so compelled to voice your negative, hateful opinion, be a grown-up and say who you are.
In the world of business:
Disney is in "talks" to purchase Pixar. You know Pixar - Toy Story 1 and 2, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles? This move would make Pixar's CEO, Steve Jobs (of Apple fame) one uber wealthy man. Personally, I'm not surprised that this is happening.
Wham-O is sold to a Hong Kong firm, Cornerstone Overseas Investment Ltd. The previous owners, the Charterhouse Group, said the move was done with the intention of helping Wham-O increase its market visibility on an international scope. COI Ltd runs about five factories in China with close to 25,000 workers. That's a lot of Frisbees ©, Slip-n-Slides ©, and Superballs ©. I don't care what the previous owners says about their intentions. Wham-O has been on the market for a while; so, the first decent oppourtunity finally came along they jumped on it like a pack of dogs on a three-legged cat.
It seems like Pax has been right all along about cell phones. Not only are they annoying and rude, now they are deadly by way of exploding.
That's all for right now. I have to hit the post for some stamps. I have a slew of $.37 stamps which need their little friend, $.02 stamp, if they expect to go anywhere.
