Degree Inequality - The Berkeley Blog

I count myself as one of those marginal students. I landed an office job out of college, but even with same, couldn’t afford a marginal used cars and a decent place. After living paycheck to paycheck for 18 months, I went to college because I wanted ‘nice things.’ I frequently advice young cousins: Go to college, away from home, I don’t care what you study, graduate. I’m quite sure my life would be very different if I stayed in the Quad Cites working at non-college-educated pay rates. Viva-la-college!

And MySpace is the new GeoCities.

At lunch today, a colleague posited that “Facebook is the new AOL. If you think about it, Facebook is what AOL was 15 years ago.”

I went for a quick ride on the bike this afternoon. It's not that bad at city speeds, as long as it is above freezing and the roads are dry. I'm looking forward to warmer days. Since this Friday, sunset has been occuring after 5PM.. But if you look at today's forecast, it's clear it'll be some time before I can ride regularly:

Stupid -- But I don't care -- I might just have to buy some stuff from this company:

Commodore USA

Oh, wow -- I had totally forgotten about that. I think I recall that the graphics were far more "jazzy" than the music one could create.

No dice. Looks like I may be the only human ever to purchase HearSay 1000 and Aqua the Clown. What a wretched piece of hardware/software.

I did find this though:

Brings back some memories.

The Dealer is one of my favorite characters in all of fiction.

But he's so ..... two dimensional. (Ba-Da Ding Click!)

Stuff like this makes me miss Adam somethin' fierce.

So what's going on all up in here?

  Comment #3745 by: Adam at about 18:35 on December 22, 2010
I visited many dealerships in search of a replacement. The CTS-V and S5 were both too expensive, the Dodge Challenger too fat and soft, the Lexus IS 350 is great looking inside and out, but the safety freaks at Toyota won't allow the stability controls to be turned off. When you boil it all down, it comes down to the simple fact that "I just wanted my car back."

Can't wait to give it a spin. I'm a little surprised you chose the same color scheme. Looks great!

Just waiting for a reasonably dry period. Pictures from my parking garage won't do the vehicle justice. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny.

Attention Adam: Where in California? Have fun, despite missing the snowfall!

  Comment #3738 by: Adam at about 23:07 on December 5, 2010
The first major snow of the season is my favorite... I'm sorry to report that I've missed this year's. I'm in California until the evening of the ninth.

I Google. I have Bing on my toolbar that I sometimes use as a dictionary due to its cascading options. I think your site is working well for everybodys needs.

I consider this web-page thing a “hobby” and I take a certain amount of pleasure that people actually have it set as their home page. As I continue to modify it, and resist to make it a self-promoting page, I was wondering the following: In the “old days,” I used to search several search engines in my quest for information. Now, I generally use only Google, thinking, “If it isn’t on Google, it probably isn’t out there.”

Question; When doing hard-core searches, do you bother to search other engines such as Yahoo or Bing? Or, do you take the attitude that I do: If you can’t find it on Google, it probably isn’t out there?

  Comment #3735 by: Adam at about 00:40 on December 4, 2010
I was wondering the same thing.

I just learned that motorcycle parking in my [work] building is a mear $40/month. That's $50/month less than my bus pass. I'm only disappointed that Winter is upon us.

Sure, if you don't mind sitting on the "bitch" seat!

Hey, any luck replacing your ride?

Can I ride on the back while you do wheelies in the school parking lot?

  Comment #3725 by: Mitchell at about 22:03 on October 28, 2010
Yeah, classic paint job. It's starting to get a bit chili for motorbiking, and I'll want to take this baby up to at least 100mph. I don't feel like doing that when it's 55 degrees. Looks sharp!

  Comment #3724 by: Adam at about 21:59 on October 28, 2010
Anytime! It should show up next week. This is the "Honda Interceptor." Honda started the sport-touring bike craze in the early 1980's. This particular bike, with it's red, white and blue paint scheme, pays respects to those early bikes... This bike, a 2007, is a "25th Anniversary" edition. This bike, even though a 2007, is brand new -- zero miles. Several dealers bought a bunch of them thinking they'd go UP in value. They didn't. In 2007, this was an eleven-thousdand dollar motorcycle.... I paid nowhere near that! The Interceptor in general, and this paint scheme in particular, has always spoken to me -- so I'm excited to start riding again!

Oh boy. Can't wait to give 'er a spin. Next Spring, yeah?
