First, Get A Big Sheet Of Paper...

Find out what would happen if it were possible to fold a piece of paper in half 100 times: Exponential growth.

At seventeen folds it would be taller than your average house. Three more folds and that sheet of paper is a quarter way up the Sears tower. Ten more folds and it has crossed the outer limits of the atmosphere. Another twenty and it has reached the sun from the earth. At sixty folds it has the diameter of the solar system. At 100 folds it has the radius of the universe.

Me v. Hawk et. al?

This 1999 court document mentions my name, but it's not me. Well, if it is me, I sure don't remember it.

John Walkenbach, a federal prisoner, appeals the district court's dismissal of his civil rights action for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. Mr. Walkenbach alleged that the denial of his request for a transfer to the federal correctional facility in El Reno, Oklahoma violated his constitutional rights to due process and equal protection

UPS Wants Its Shirt Back

A few weeks ago, Darren Barefoot bought a brown UPS shirt at a used clothing store (story and photo here). UPS found out about it and now they want it back: UPS Wants Its Shirt Back.

just got a call from a guy at the Vancouver office of UPS. They'd apparently seen my UPS shirt on the Web, and they want it back. Specifically, he indicated the shirt was "private property" and they had a policy that no UPS material was resold. In view of "9/11" and more recent incidents, they don't want anybody parading around as a faux UPS dude. They offered to reimburse me for the shirt.

Happy Birthday B.B.

Exactly 79 years ago today, B.B. King was born. And fortunately, he's still with us and sounding better than ever.

Grandpa takes a drink of wine
And tells it like it was
Tells me all he wants to do
Is what everybody does
Say he'd give the world
For a little girl
Just to help him lose
Those happy birthday blues

Famous Heights

A site that lists how tall famous people are: Famous Heights.

I learned that I'm the same height that Elvis was, I'm an inch taller than Al Gore, and an inch shorter than Stephen King. I also learned that Gary Coleman is taller than Dr. Ruth.

Photos By Marcin Wojcik

I like this photo blog: Timeframes.

I was born and raised in Poland. In 2002 I graduated in cultural animation at Jagiellonian University. Now, I live in Brooklyn, NY and this website helped me to fight for my self esteem.

Hangover Cures

This site has a button. Click it and you'll get a random hangover cure. Here's one:

Toni says, "My hangover cure is Dramamine, Chicken and Stars soup, and re-runs of Gilligan's Island. The Dramamine takes that woozy seasickness away, the soup re-hydrates your body and replaces salt, and Gilligans Island is easy on the brain. Please send me a t-shirt. I can't afford to buy one because all of my extra cash was spent at the bar!" Yeah, OK.
