Huh. It appears I asked this same question four years ago. I really need to lift my content game.

Whatever happened to bb? And Saydrah?

Edit: So I got the first username wrong. The perils of memory.

Thank you for the recommendation! I wasn't aware of deep dish pizza being a Chicago thing, so we'll certainly keep an eye out for it. We're both kind of off meat, so I expect we'll skip the beef.

Are you from the Chicago area? Any galleries or museums or other sites you particularly recommend?

As a man who causes agony to those I love whenever I participate in karaoke, I envy you.

Soon they'll be speaking in campaign videos (if they're not already). Then, they'll be holding flash rallies in their thousands.

Returning to the US for a holiday in a few months. We're going to Chicago and Ann Arbor, which will be a first for both of us. What should we do while we're there?

Also, I'm thinking about changing jobs.

There's a handful of billionaire space enthusiasts who immediately come to mind.

I signed up for Mars One when it was first announced. I knew the proposal was very, very unlikely (really: I'm not a fool), but I thought that even with a 0.1% chance of success, the potential payoff was worth it.

Then I received an email from Mars One advising me that an ~$80 registration fee was required in order for me to proceed to "the next round". I lost interest then.

Fun read. Reminded me of the old Jack Chick tracts.

When can we expect to start seeing footage from Parker?
