Almost back

July 19, 2009

Katt Williams, a google search, and some honest women brought me back. I haven’t felt this good in a long time.

Too much

July 17, 2009

I told a couple of work friends this week that i’m quitting to go to law school and the general consensus is that I wasted a lot of time getting an engineering degree if I was just going to go to law school. It was a lot more work, but i’m proud of the work I put in as an ME undergrad and you can trust that i’m going to rock the UCLA engineering plates forever. I’ve noticed that a lot of accountants and people working in finance think that they’re hot stuff, but engineers share the same bias. I’ve gotten tired of all the engineering stereotypes…male, white/asian, lacking social skills, heavy into graphing calculators, etc etc. Here’s an engineering stereotype that is true, we’re probably smarter than you, and that goes double for anybody with an accent.

A monster

July 13, 2009

GSP is a monster. He’s a hardworking guy, but his legs are a gift from God. Very few people, and even fewer white people have that kind of fast twitch leg muscle. His front squat is supposedly 270lbs, which is good, but not amazing considering he’s the owner of a 40″ vertical.  His standup is good enough to get people to engage, and then he’s going to take you down and work you over. He’s spent quality time on the matt with a series of black belts and never been close to being submitted. If you do take him down or sweep him, he’s pretty much impossible to hold down. Short of demain maia cutting to 170, I don’t see anyone being able to beat him on the ground. Better hope someone catches him with an uppercut or a knee.

 

No homo!
