Other Ten Percent 10/19/10

Oct 19 2010

Hey you know what I love about the MUNI? That science tells me it’ll one day be swallowed up by the sun and incinerated. I was late for basically everything I did all day because I spent 3 and half hours on the MUNI today for what was supposed to be maybe an hour and a halfs worth of commuting and I had to stand pretty much the entire time. On a totally unrelated note, don’t expect a lot of commentary on the links today.
