update: if this non-security-flaw bothers you, you can always use an ipeep to remedy the situation…

keeping a promise

matthias posted “I’ll Ask You Something I’ve Always Wondered About You?” quite some time ago on his personal blog.

i just loved the thought of him saying things about me and now he finally did, read the – funny – “answers” in this post.

rule #8 of the little game says, that i must post it here, which is what i do here.

the rules are as follows: leave your name (and web-address) in a comment below and…

  • I’ll respond with something random about you.
  • I’ll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
  • I’ll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle with you in.
  • I’ll try to say something that only makes sense to you and me.
  • I’ll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
  • I’ll tell you what animal you remind me of.
  • I’ll ask you something that I’ve always wondered about you.
  • If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal. You MUST.

the us of a is in deep trouble.

as other people, i really suffer with all the persons that are hit by the hurricane in the states. but if you watch those two videos below, you really get a sense on how deep the trouble is gonna be once all the news get trough.

the first video shows two reporters of fox news really freaking out while giving their impression of the crisis. you should watch both videos to the end to see the important part!

Geraldo-1 Hannity-Colmes-Smith-Rivera-freak-in-NO.wmv (5.1mb .wmv-file).

the second video shows kayne west yelling a rather unplanned “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” while on a show with mike myers:

Kayne-1Kayne-West-Bush-Black-People.wmv (4.1mb .wmv-file)

it all comes together

nearlyostroafter i laced my wheels for the second time (i thought i had a 32-hole rim at home, but it was a 36 hole rim and thus had to re-lace the front-wheel) and fitted the bottom bracket and the steering bracket my ostro-frame starts to actually look like a bike (sorry for the bad picture-quality, but it was dark and i took the pic with my mobile…)

i might be riding this baby on my birthday, so you better watch out!
