New MacBook

My mom just got a new MacBook and I've been playing around with it.  It is awesome!  I am a new convert.
I took this photo using the built in camera and the photobooth program.  So much fun.

Ophthalmologist visit

I went to see the ophthalmologist yesterday.  What's with the device that you rest your head and chin on so the doctor can examine you?  Why do they have the tear away sheets for the chin rest but not the forehead rest?  I feel like foreheads are dirtier than chins.  I put my head into the machine and my forehead is always confronted with a greasy piece of plastic while the tear-away chin rest piece taunts me with its cleanliness.

He created the concept in 1999 with his graduate students, and it has since captured the imagination of architects and various city planners. The following images are artistic renderings of what some of these farms of the future might look like.
