Robot Best Friend

Justin Meier showed me a KSL article about a couple of BYU students that are one of the five finalists for the Doritos Crash the Superbowl competition. The commercial they made is pretty good (the picture quality is best if you hit the bottom right button to make the video full screen).


But, unfortunately, methinks this one is better.

Heuristics

As a general rule, whenever you look outside and Lake Michigan is frozen, the day will be unconscionably cold.

Everybody Has This Scarf

If you haven't noticed already, everybody has Burberry. I didn't notice it until a month ago, but it's true. Burberry is becoming a super trend. Kind of like JNCO's back in the late 90's, except not ugly. People with the Burberry scarf don't like it when you point it out though. They take it personally, like you've taken a jab at their first-mover status. They scarf for attention but don't care to have attention called to it. It's okay guys, you can be in the trend but not of the trend.

I'm not saying it's bad to be a Burberryist. I'm sure I should very much like Burberrying. All I'm saying is I noticed two of my friends had the scarf and while I was thinking about it on the way to work I saw two men and three women with the scarf before I had crossed Michigan Avenue. Then while I was stopped at a crosswalk I noticed the woman standing next to me was sporting the scarf. Immediately upon recognizing her scarf, a car pulled up to the light in front of me, whose driver was also wearing Burberry. I could go on, but you get the idea. Now, whenever I go to restaurants I try to count how many Burberry scarves I can spot. It's not uncommon to see six or seven. It's fun. Now that you know you'll see them all the time, too.
