If you like whiskey and trying new things, have I got a recommendation for you. Whippersnapper, by Random Spirits, is a 79% corn mash whiskey that smells like nothing I've ever come across and tastes like a whiskey much older than it is. Despite it being produced mainly from corn, the aging process precludes this Oregonian whiskey from being considered a bourbon. What's the aging process, you ask? Well, I'm glad you did!
Three different homes in less than two years? This whiskey is like the army brat of American spirits! What you get from such an involved process is an absolutely wonderful and unique flavor profile. If you can find a bottle of this good, good stuff, I highly recommend picking it up. It's not easy to find but at the time of this post, it was available at K&L.
Thanks to the folks at CollegeHumor for making this. It's the most realistic depiction of how dinosaurs may have interacted with one another that I've ever seen:
Btw, if you think that the voices sound like voices from The Cheat's flash cartoons within the HomestarRunner website, you're both not alone and as big of a dork as I am.
Tracy Morgan as Tracy Jordan on 30 Rock coined the quotation that I’ve used as the title of this post and I try to heed it myself. But, for those of you who need something a little extra to to get you pumped for Shark Week, I offer the world’s largest shark tank, live streaming from Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. For more info, check out the Wired article with the same stream. This is a pretty easy way to lose 15 minutes of your work day, so be warned before you press play! [Wired]

As soon as I’m allowed to invite people, I’ll do my best to get my friends on. For now, it’s a little lonely on Google+ but I must say, the Circles feature is really cool. Facebook, take a note!
2) Second of all, I saw this ad on Reddit today wherein a girl’s boyfriend charms everyone at the table. I have to admit, I found myself charmed as well! See if it has the same effect on you!
Good advertising… it really makes you hate bad advertising, doesn’t it? I’m looking at you, Ed-u-ca-tion Con-nec-tion!
3) Third of all, it’s been over a month since I posted anything at all! I’m really slipping and Google seems to have noticed. MichaelBlock.org has fallen to a PR1! Oh, the shame! I’ve got to get back on the posting horse and ride. More posting will be coming more often, whether you like it or not!
PS: I’m totally ripping Petros & Money with the “Three Things Thursday” motif. Hope they don’t mind!
