Know Any Good Dentists in NJ? - 10/14/11 02:15 AM
Know Any Good Dentists in NJ? Dentists and I don't get along too well... One almost killed me (LITERALLY), and the last one was supposed to pull 2 teeth. I woke up from the anesthesia and was missing 6 TEETH. He said that every tooth he pulled, the one behind it broke. Hmmmm... Don't think that had anything to do with the $1200 bill he handed me while I was still sedated, huh? Anyway, I met a pretty nice dentist the other day, he actually lives right down the block from me. Turns out he had had his home (7 comments)

The people coming in to get work are sleeping in their cars until they can find a place to stay. Local developers (8 comments)
Three Apples That Changed the World... - 10/06/11 03:10 AM
One of my Facebook friends posted this phrase tonite. I dunno where he got it, but I thought it was PERFECT: Three Apples changed the world. The first one seduced Eve. The second one fell on Newton. The third one passed away on Wednesday.... Steve Jobs passed away Wednesday. In the unlikely case that you might not know who he was (it can happen), he started Apple Computer with friend Steve Wozniak in his parent's garage 1976. The man has changed technology, created it as we know it today... "A college drop-out and the son of adoptive parents, Jobs changed the (23 comments)
