New Header

I changed my header (the thing above where it says Phronk.com) slightly. The rat-monkey-squirrels have changed into my brain. It makes more sense, because it's beside the zombies, and zombies eat brains, not rat-squirrel-monkeys.

It actually is my brain. I figure I can remain anonymous here, since most people are unlikely to recognize me by the inside of my brain.

Note the squished cerebellum. This is what a normal cerebellum looks like:



Mine is squished. Here is what Wikipedia says about cerebellum problems:

Recent brain imaging studies using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) show that the cerebellum is important for language processing, selective attention and smooth, co-ordinated movement. Subsequently, patients with cerebellar dysfunction experience problems in speech, walking and balance, and accurate hand and arm movement. The clinical features of a cerebellar lesion can be remembered by using the acronym "DANISH":

* D - dysdiadochokinesia (inability to perform rapidly alternating movements)
* A - ataxia (with a broad-based gait)
* N - nystagmus (with the fast stroke pointing towards the side of the lesion)
* I - intention tremor
* S - staccato, slurred speech
* H - hypotonia

So next time I have trouble focusing on one thing at a time, or trouble doing...you know...doing talking...then I can just remember the cute pastry aconym...even though I don't know what any of those words mean...and hey did anyone see the season finale of Lost? That was awesome.

Now, is your brain actually sepia-toned, or is that from ye olde Brain Voyager v.0.1?

They ran out of inkjet paper so they printed my MRI on ancient medieval parchment.

And you're very welcome!

but rat-squirrel-monkeys drink coffee. So, it's a wash.

I can't believe FutureKate drives a Volvo. She went all soccer mom. I thought she'd always be a badass. FutureJack's beard was very bushy. Did you notice his belly? I did.

If I'd been through what Jack had been through, I'd probably let myself go too.

FutureKate didn't, though. She was (will be?) hot as hell.

FutureJack's Dad also seems to have risen from the dead and is now prescribing hardcore narcotics to addicts.

Now there's a messiah!
