Favorite Super Bowl Ad

Consensus based on reaction by the friends I watched the Super Bowl with is that this was the best ad last night:

The rest of the time, the group invariably yelled "Flag" after nearly every play. Our friend, Dave, offered several times,

"I'm telling you. Someone from the Cardinals forgot to pay off someone. It's a forgone conclusion that Pittsburgh will win. They'll let Arizona have a moment near the end where they THINK they have a chance, but there will be too much time on the clock and Pittsburgh will still win."

And so he was right. It felt like the longest football game I've ever watched in my life and then it seemed to end very abruptly. Oddness.

I liked this one the best, too. Although it could've been edited a helluva lot better. It's way too repetitive. But, seeing a kola get bunched in the face makes up for it. What's the deal with advertisers this year waiting till the last second to say what they're product is? Not just this one, but a lot them.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

I wrote this on another site:
Perhaps I'm too old for the reveal-all-confessional type of blogging but reading claw marks lately makes me want to start blogging again to at least expand upon the thoughts I wouldn't otherwise write out in a Facebook post or vague tweet.
A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:

[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
