The Green Machine Water

My nephew Aidan is getting this when he turns 4.5 (for the summer). I'll copy the description below.
The Huffy Green Machine H20 has an oversized rear water tank with hand pump. The tank is easy to fill and shoots water over 20 feet. A firing control can be found on the joystick. The Green Machine also drives smoothly thanks to the super wide racing slick rear wheels.

  • Molded seat
  • Extra rear wheel pivot action for ultimate comfort
  • Shoots water over 20 feet
  • Extreme ride and slide action
  • Rear water tank with hand pump
  • Front fender mounted sprayer

Flying Spaghetti Monster and coffee experiment #3

This is a pretty involved wikipedia article about the FSM Church. I think I could consider myself a pastafarian, or a frisbeetarian.

And now for the results of coffee experiment number 3...

A week ago I had this great idea, or what I thought would be great. When and if I get coffee I usually get something like a latte, which is by definition espresso and milk. They are usually around 3 or 4 washingtons. So my great idea, to order a single shot of 'extra hot' espresso (1 and change) and use the milk from the coffee stand to top it off. There you have it, a half price latte. In the word of Ron Burgandy, "The human torch was denied a bank loan."

The milk must be steamed. Plain and simple. The concoction was a cold acidic coffee flavored milk that tasted like chalk water mixed with citric acid. My recommendation, pay the extra buck fifty for the milk that has been warmed up. Or bring your own. Or just drink water.

Lyric of the day number 4.3:

Yeahhh, your majesty, word flash photography
Third class economy, blade slashed your artery
Nerve gassed anatomy, blurred past dramatically
