The 10 rainiest cities in the U.S. by amount of annual rainfall include:
1. Mobile, Ala.: 67 inches average annual rainfall; 59 average annual rainy days
7. Miami, Fla.: 62 inches average annual rainfall; 57 average annual rainy days
A misleading list. Miami rain comes on strong for about 20 minutes then is over. It’s rarely a full day affair, unless of course there’s a hurricane. I guess I shouldn’t get too worked up about an article using the word ‘rainiest’ as a scientific term.
And no, Seattle doesn’t even make the list.
Activision released some information today on Guitar Hero III. It’ll be out this fall for Wii, PS3 and XBox 360 and feature a wireless Gibson guitar with removable faceplates.
The initial list of face-melting awesomeness includes:
* Paint It Black (by The Rolling Stones)
* Cherub Rock (by Smashing Pumpkins)
* Sabotage (by Beastie Boys)
* The Metal (by Tenacious D)
* My Name is Jonas (by Weezer)
* Knights of Cydonia (by Muse)
* Rock And Roll All Nite (as made famous by Kiss)
* Schools Out (as made famous by Alice Cooper)
* Slow Ride (as made famous by Fog Hat)
* Cult of Personality (by Living Colour)
* Barracuda (as made famous by Heart)
This plant M.D. will lets you know your plant needs watering by letting out a ribbit when soil conductivity drops. A built-in light sensor keeps him quiet at night.
Who okays this bunny for use around children? Note the leg in the bottom left corner.
If I hadn’t recently seen The Devil and Daniel Johnston I may have passed right by this graffiti in downtown Austin yesterday. I thought it was charcoal, but the next day I could see it was black spraypaint (and an older gentlemen was videotaping it, full-on with a tripod).
If you haven’t seen the movie, check it out. The plane keys moment is wild.
Daniel Johnston also recently (May 16th) played David Bowie’s “Highline” Festival.
My thoughts on eating seafood in land-locked states are justified. Although eating a different fish is better than eating a rotten fish.
The Chicago Sun-Times had DNA tests done on sushi described as red snapper or “Japanese red snapper” bought from 14 restaurants in the city and suburbs. Not a single one was really red snapper.
In most cases, the red-tinged flesh draped across the small mound of rice was tilapia — a cheap substitute. Nine of the 14 samples were tilapia. Four were red sea bream — nearly as pricey but still not red snapper.
MIAMI, Florida (AP) — For the second consecutive year, rude Miami drivers have earned the city the title of worst road rage in a survey released Tuesday.
I think they can just leave us in the number spot from here on out.
A great example happened to me this past week. A truck cut across two lanes and tried to force his way in front of me at an offramp, cutting into a line of about 30 cars. When I didn’t see him right away and didn’t let him in, he got behind me, tailgated, then drove up next to me stopping traffic to scream at me for not letting him in.
I’m always pleasantly surprised when driving in ANY other city.
