What to do...

Most blogs have a purpose. Some are about politics. Some are funny. Some are about sports. Some blogs are technical.

It may seem that this blog has no purpose. After all, in the archives you can find posts on everything from funny articles, to Kyle's latest happenings, to personal beliefs I may or may not still hold. But, believe it or not this blog DOES have a direct purpose. I don't think I've ever directly stated this blogs purpose to this here it goes:

I "blog" because I believe that writing more often will make me a better writer, and writing is a skill I want to cultivate.

I've considered opening a blog that is dedicated to a single topic - cycling, guitar, amps, some medical or engineering related topic. Perhaps someday I will.

In the mean time, I appreciate all of you that read.

The real question is....

Why do bands continue to make music videos when no tv channel will play them?

Purely Hypothetical

You are a professor. Recently an important vote went before the faculty of your department. Not only are you found in the minority, but the vote is called "decisive" by people who do that. Being strong minded and strongly opinionated on this particular proposal, this upsets you.

What do you do?
a) Forget about it - it's not that big of a deal.
b) Lock yourself in your office and hold a grudge.
c) Talk to the chair of your department to explain your concerns.
d) Dedicate an entire section in your next book using the exact same numbers, but a slightly different situation showing the vote fails a chi-squared test of significance (at the 5% level), and therefore is not "decisive".

To me, the answer is obvious.

He asked for it

It's not like he said, "Mother, I would like more of those carrots you have in that jar." Yet, that's exactly what went down.

Well, see for yourself (about 5mb video).

In case you don't get it, this is the ASL sign for "more".
