A dormant blog in motion

Just putting this up for the sake of anyone who may be subscribed to the RSS feed - I'm in the process of selling the 1in7billion.com domain. If you want to be notified should I ever post anything again, you can follow this blog at http://1in7b.blogspot.com

A note on ads

As you may have noticed, I recently enabled Google ads. Given the (lack of) traffic around here, I don't expect to make any money off of them, but I've seen way too many comedic ad placements on other sites to pass up this kind of opportunity for humor. If they get too distracting, let me know and I'll consider relocating or abolishing them.

So far, they seem to think this is a car blog. :)

Go north, young man

If you travel into Oil City, PA, from nearby Franklin, you'll come to this intersection. All three of those routes do indeed lead northward.

So, you're out there driving along and minding your own business, when suddenly, it's time to make a decision. The options really look different: you can go left, right, or straight ahead - it seems like all the choices a person could want. And yet, no matter what you pick, you're gonna end up going in about the same direction, anyway.

Is it just me, or is there an allegory in there somewhere?

Yep, they're still in business

I have nothing to say about these guys that I haven't already said, so here's the current sign from Short Street Motor Cars. Enjoy!

Yes, yes it is.

I wonder if you can get some at this place.

False advertising

I noticed this sign while I was refueling my car. Both of those things sounded pretty good to me, so I went inside and asked the clerk for two M&M's and one french fry. For some reason, all I got was a strange look.

My mother's sister's daughter's cousin is confused

I took this somewhere in the Denver suburbs fully six months into the Obama administration. The Lennon sticker is straightforward enough, but the other one has me perplexed. Is it somehow beneficial to make someone go through a brain teaser to figure out who you're supporting, or is there some really subtle humor here that I'm not fully grasping? Anyone?
