Groundhog day vs. Election day
The video below got me thinking about all of the crazy e-mail forwards that encouraged people not to vote for Obama because there was “proof” that he’s the Antichrist. As if Satan would leave his master plan all up to a vote—allowing us to foil his plot to bring about Armageddon by simply voting for John McCain. Sounds to me like a high-stakes “Groundhog’s day”....
When a galvanizing leader captures the public’s imagination, he’s either Hitler or the Antichrist. Hilarious. “The Usual Suspects” is one of my favorite movies.
Another one of my favorite episodes of Jake and Amir… Amir: “Oh my god, Jake. Watch out, car!” Jake: “People say that, so…” Amir: “Hello. Oh my god, Jake…I think a car tried to rape my mom.” Jake: “You’re an idiot.” Amir: “Hold on. She was actually in a car accident, so one second.”
Why I love Jake and Amir… Jake: “You can’t do that. You can’t own chance.” Amir: “That’s beautiful.”
This is old, but it’s been a slow day. I’ve always loved optical illusions…and the beautiful girl/ugly woman is one of my favs. Some of the guys down at TD compiled a pretty sweet list a while back. Check it out.

My cat lived to be 22 and died when I was a freshman in college. She was blind, deaf, and most importantly never learned to fetch. Every boy should grow up with a dog. :(
But my weight problem is actually no laughing matter; it’s a serious...– I was going through some of my old stuff from high school tonight and I found a disk containing a bunch of my old english papers and speeches. This is an excerpt from a speech I wrote my senior year. I sent my speech to a comedian once, and he sent me back a check for $50 in exchange for the right...

In an effort to be more environmentally conscientious, I will no longer be mailing paper copies of my blog postings to my dedicated reader (Amy). I hope you understand. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit my gift shop.
How much money does your favorite professor make? →
I read somewhere a while back that the Millennial Generation in the workforce is very open about sharing how much money they make. Makes sense…I know what most of my friends make and vice versa. I just wish it was all common knowledge like it was when I worked at the U. If you’re ever bored, it’s a real eye-opener to look at how much all your old professors make. Some of my...
If you’ve been in a coma for the past 5 or so years, here’s your internet Cliff’s notes. There were even a few on here that I hadn’t seen…and a few I could watch over and over. p.s. Cliff’s notes started out right here in Lincoln NE. Represent!

My name is finally going to get the recognition it deserves. I’ve always preferred Trev to Trevor…makes me feel like I could have played linebacker for the Huskers.
My blog’s first words… Isn’t that just adorable.
