PA Traffic Cams –

I’ve seen the DELDOT cam site, but didn’t know that there were Philly area cams.  Not as good as the Delaware cams, but not too shabby, all the same.

309 Cameras – in the work zone.

Shore traffic?  Some links –

Simulating Traffic Performance in a Network by Using Corsim and Dynasmart – cool paper, but no practical info
To the citizens of the United States of America Text - Physics Forums Library – mentions shore traffic later in the thread, but the link is more for comic relief

I love this line:  “I'm just tryin to say the way school need teachers, the way Kathy Lee needed Regis that's the way I need Jesus.”

Along with, “And when you get on he’ll leave your ass for a white girl.”

Kanye may just be the frickin’ Paul Simon of the 21st century.  When I searched google for “Paul Simon” “the 21st Century”, I got this.  (Well it was the most interesting one, anyway).

Another one of THOSE stumblers

Leave suggestions for the best lyricist of the 21st century in comments.  (As if anyone reads this.  Hah!)

My Post Exit Physical Rant

Doctors suck.  I had the same doctor for my physical that I had last year.  Her advice on diet helped me to lose about 15 pounds, which I then gained back over the winter in response to the recurring virus that plagued me all winter.  In the last couple of months, I’ve lost about 5 pounds and I am working on losing more.

But what is the reality of the situation?  The US Census estimates that there about 11 million men in my 5 year age group (45-49).  4 In 10 Americans Say They're Overweight, but the government says 6 in 10 are overweight.  6% of Americans say they are obese, but the government says 30% are obese.  The Skinny on Diets says that 95% of diets fail.  NAAFA Policy on DIETING AND THE DIET INDUSTRY says, ”Since reducing diets rarely achieve permanent weight loss and can result in negative health consequences, since laws and regulations protecting the consumer are nonexistent or remain unenforced, and since people undertaking diets are rarely given sufficient information to allow them to give true informed consent, the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance strongly discourages participation in weight-reduction dieting. Further, NAAFA strongly condemns any diet marketing strategy based on guilt and fear. Such approaches cause untold suffering to fat people by ruining their self-esteem and by perpetuating negative stereotypes. NAAFA demands that local, state, and federal governments regulate the diet industry to protect the consumer from misleading claims regarding safety and long-term effectiveness.”

So at least 660,000 other American men my age are roughly as fat as me.  I would venture to guess that 600,000 of them will never weight less than they do now.  650,000 of us will probably never be able to maintain a lower weight.  So what are my chances?  Slim & none, and Slim just left town.

Some Random Links

For some reason, I ended up at  I was checking out my shopping cart, my wish list, and Amazon: Listmania! - View List "Books & Movies - Summer 2003" (which, needless to say, I compiled during the Summer of 2003.)  This led me to So You'd Like to... eat, poop, sleep and read and Pornstar: Books: Ian Gittler. So You'd Like to... Challenge the Status Quo? looks kind of cool, too.

Jerry Glanville

OK, I expected write & link more, but it comes down to my thoughts back to the old Houston Oilers’ Run & Shoot offense with Jerry Glanville and the possibility of the Texans taking Vince Young with the first pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.  But I have also seen projections that the Tennessee Titans (the football team formerly known as the Oilters) might take Vince Young with the 3rd pick.  An interesting article about Jerry Glanville as the University of Hawaii defensive coordinator.
