Brexit. Sigh. The U.K. is shooting itself in the head. The Tories called for an ill-advised and non-binding popular 2016 vote about Brexit under Cameron, who left office over the result, & wasn't in favor of Brexit anyway. Tories and... Continue reading

Sarah's sister Ruth just sent me this obituary: http://andersonbethany.com/fh/obituaries/obituary.cfm?o_id=1470498&fh_id=13307

I remember the shithead's name now: Pete, which was what my mom used to call me when I was a kid. Fucking asshole ripped off both Sarah and her mom. Also stole water from the city where Sarah used to live, and got Sarah in trouble with the law for it. Glad there's a thousand miles of continent between me and that loser.

To be a little less nice, I'd like to find that fucking grifter Sarah fell in with and moved to AZ with when she was still probably brain damaged. I'd like to figure out if there were a way to get his ass in jail.

For Sarah Louise Trombly-Stillson: The song that started going through my mind today when I heard Sarah had died was the "Butterflies are free to fly" part of Elton John's "Someone Saved My Life Tonight." I don't know why. The... Continue reading

Richard -- nice. :) I suggest adding a random component to the number of hours open and/or the starting time. So, for instance, take consecutive digits in pi, and be open that many hours. You could even add in a few extra rules, like any occurrence of 9 in replaced by 0. :)
