Seattle’s Critical Mass gets famous

Someone used to search for images of people behaving drunk and found my rant about cyclists behaving badly.

Excellent. First result, too.

units of measure

the FU or Friedman Unit refers to the length of time its namesake thinks will bring about results in Iraq. we’ve been through 4 or so of them, so far. no results, at least none anyone is happy with.

The Horse’s Mouth:

If six months is a Friedman, what is 150,000 troops? I propose that these extra troops (imaginary though they are) be called McCains with 100,000=1 McCain. So Friedman wants 1.5 McCains sent to Iraq….and a pony.

now we have the McCain, unit of troop strength.

He should know better as a vet, but the rest of these jokers are just playing Risk.
