On I Object To Your Projections

@SeanP I used to love telling folks about the military origins of the UTM when I was the GIS dude at a real estate development company. A lot of spatial data from the feds is in that format- wetlands, floodplains, etc., and the site plan guys hated it because it's in meters, not feet. I told them that the the data is in UTM in case the Army needed to blow up our Walmart Supercenter (that was my hope). Now I sell bicycles and can sleep at night.

On Football And Nachos, The Texan Way

@percolator I knew only one Cowboys fan when I lived in Packer-land, we used to bowl in the same league. He killed a woman with a hatchet, but I never found out how he liked his nachos- http://www.jsonline.com/news/crime/51591782.html

On You Should See "Monument Ave."

@major disaster The main thing I remember is Dennis Leary doing coke, and hitting on gentrifying yuppie girls. Which doesn't seem like much of a stretch.
