2 wrongs don't make a right, but 3 lefts do.

People worry when someone keeps saying that the company is turning a corner. After all, if you turn four corners, you're back to where you started.

"Don't be evil" does not mean "be good"...

The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the asshole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande half-soy, half-lowfat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low and one NutraSweet," ooh, you're a huge asshole.

Same salamander, different swamp.

Hi! My name is...

Wait, why another blog??

Salon writes that Eminem is really three personas:
First came the runty Marshall Mathers, a quiet, artistic kid bounced from school to school by his overprotective, slightly unhinged mother. Then came M&M, later Eminem, the silver-tongued outcast who forsook fitting in with his white suburban classmates to concentrate on breaking into Detroit's overwhelmingly black rap scene. Finally, and most furiously, came Slim Shady, the vile, rhyme-sayin', bitch-slayin' MC out to even every score run up against his other selves. Yet none of these personas has canceled the other out.
I think I have something similar going on. There's Adam Rifkin -- the quiet, artistic kid who bounced from school to school. On the Internet, I perform as ifindkarma in places like blogger. And now there's mafiadrink, where I let my Slim Shady out. It's a darker place that can supplement the real me and the me I've been playing on the Internet.

I wonder if everybody is three people.

Is that what makes friendship important?

We'll see. Stay tuned.
