Support for the "theory" of evolution

Chickens with Teeth

How can anyone deny that the development of life on earth is based on the ideas embodied by the theory of evolution? We have a tail bone, but no tail. Chickens have bumps, but no teeth. Come on! Even the freakin Pope has said that religion shouldn't be taught in science class. Sometimes it amazes me how seriously people can take themselves- we are all too good, too unique, too special, too grand to have gotten here the same way as every other lowly animal, wait that implies that we are animals too, I didn't mean that...

Personally I take great comfort in thinking that every hair, every cell, every protein, every molecule, nay every damn atom in my body came from a star or supernova. Isn't it almost supernatural to think that the beauty of life wouldn't be here if it weren't for one of the most violently explosive phenomena known to man?

NSA & Silicon Valley VCs

More good stuff...

New York Times article about NSA reps meeting with venture capitalists in S. Bay

Not suprised. I find it interesting how this could lead to a guilty until innocent's ok for the gov't to dig through all of your personal information if you are innocent right!?!

Google's Guts

So I hope that most of you know about this: google has denied the US Justice Dept. suponea requesting search queries of its users as well as all of the URLs in google's database. This is super serious turning point in the life of the web, with implications that could last decades. This will probably go to the Supreme Court- hopefully they make the right decision. Good thing that Yahoo! and MSN already turned over their records, as requested...pussies!

Reclassification Program

Is it wrong of me to enjoy this kind of shady shit? I just love it, it's like a ripe peach on a summer day, a snowball in the face of an enemy, mmm sweet justification...

First Panorama Attempt

Haight St.

This was at the entrance of an elementary school. Imagine seeing that every morning before school...maybe the head shops and hydroponics stores across the street would have a bigger impact.?.

Sombody asked the owner if it was for sale. He said, I couldn't find another one like it...

Classic San Francisco. How cool would it be to live in that blue house? You could tell people, I live in the Blue house just off of Haight St.
This shop had an angry smurf!

A wall.

Three Broken Ribs Later

So I'm broken once again...this time it was on my bike. I was cruising down Bay St. from school on Friday, I was going too fast, w/ a little weight on the back when I hit a dip in the road. I lost control, went over the handle bars and slammed into a sign. Helicopter ride to Stanford Hospital later, and I'm in a hell of a lot of pain. Doing anything hurts, even laying down, because everyone has to breathe. They said its gonna take 3-6 weeks to heal.

The end of free email?

(Anyone want gmail invites? Zero spam to date 1.5yrs)

Ok, so now I need to pay to send my friends email? At first I thought they were going to charge their users per spam blocked, and I was thinking, well then yahoo and aol will just start spamming their own customers, but that's not what they're doing.

I went to see a movie this weekend called Syriana, which is about big oil companies, and how they get a stronghold on the middle east, and what happens when a leader who really wants to reform their country rises up. Very good film...very honest (I think w/ my liberal bias).

I've also been listening to Chomsky- and you can tell Dan to go suck a nut, Chomsky is the shit...he's got this country- and any other imperial nation figured out more clearly than anyone else I've ever talked to/read about/listened to- and he just lays it out there, without any reguard for people's feelings. Interestingly there's alot of things he believes that I wouldn't expect. He's against a volenteer army, thought that Iraq would be 1-2-3, and says we won the Vietnam conflict. Maybe he is an old gas bag- but man that's some fine smelling gas.

Also, Dave and Liz, could you guys remove the links to my blog from yours...I'm doing a little test w/ Google. If you type in "jesse guzman" blog into google you find my blog...Google searches w/ links-and I think you guy are the only one's with links...I want to find out because I've heard of people not getting a job because of something they blogged...just curious.

Also, anyone interested in moving to the Caymen Islands to start an offshore information security company?

Chantrelle Mushrooms

So my roomate, Katie, went mushroom foraging with some friends this weekend, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to take some pictures of them.
