      ...or RDIWAT, rideewat. Just rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it? Here's a thought: Every time I shower, I shampoo and condition with two different brands. One is better cleansing, the other volumizes my hair. Keep in mind, that I am, in fact, a heterosexual male, yet I wash my hair more than most women. I do this because I have cut my hair in order to get jobs twice, and both times I regretted it. I simply look better with long hair, and in order to be professional I have to look groomed and polished, even with that hair. I carry a brush almost everywhere and I style it from time to time. I keep my beard clean, too. I honestly believe that prejudices about appearance can be overcome with effort. Trust me, go with the look you want. It's way better than conforming(Unless you want to get a tattoo on your face. Reconsider that).

      After that, here's an ice phoenix.

      As evidenced by the fact that I have the Michael Jordan number of friends. Number 23 is @dominictyler , thanks, dude. Now because I have the MJ level of friends, here is an obligatory shot of Jordan himself being awesome.

      Basketball was never my sport, but 23 transcended sports and the 90's Bulls even had me watching. It wasn't just him, guys like Pippen, Rodman, Kukoc, and others made basketball exciting every single game.

    • Random Daily Observation

      Allow me to share something I've discovered today: Sex changes in a long-term relationship, and for the better. When you're young, or in a new relationship, the feeling of "OMG, I can't believe I'm having sex with this person!" actually supersedes the sex itself. Early on in my marriage, I used to ride that high for hours afterward, energizing me for a while, but causing me to miss the nuances of sex. Now that has subsided, and my wife and I have reached a level of total comfort with each other, I'm now experiencing all the little things sex has to offer. There is much more to it than anyone who has never been in a sexual relationship for more than a year realizes. It only gets better with time.

      And since this is an observation, here is the observation deck of the USS Enterprise:

      I wonder how many alien women Kirk has brought here for 'observation'.

      I'm an anime nerd(along with a dozen other kinds of geek), and I also find the music genre Nightcore to be hilarious and sometimes addictive when done right. Oddly enough, googling anime and nightcore yield very similar results. Here's one of them:

      I encourage to look up nightcore of a popular song you enjoy, If I were a gambling man I'd bet you 10 bucks you'll laugh out loud.

    • Deliberate Daily Image

      I chose today's image for very specific purposes. I'm a big supporter of comic books, and I wish they got more recognition besides the movies based on the characters. From what I can tell, just like video games, the majority of the general public still view them as a children's entertainment, even though the demographics prove otherwise. I wish to show off some of my favorite comic book material, and encourage people to seek it out and read it. Here is perhaps my favorite independent comic, the Witchblade.
      witchblade(Stjepan+Sejic)+.jpg
      Unlike the manga and anime based off it, the original Witchblade is just about a cop who gets an ancient power glove that gives her incredible abilities that she must use to preserve the balance between the Angelus and the Darkness(And about a dozen other things it turns out). Many of the original stories are good, and I recommend seeking out the Witchblade Compendiums, but if you don't want to read that much, I recommend starting at #80 or #100, both are good jumping-on points for the series. Also, the art in this image comes from Stjepan Sejic(I believe it's pronounced Steepan Sayic), who has become my favorite comic book artist.

      This is an exercise in storytelling I used to play with friends. The rules are simple: A person gives an example of one arbitrary thing that could potentially change the world, for example "Cows develop sentience," or "John Lennon wasn't murdered." It could even be basic things, like "CNN goes off the air." The next person's duty is to take that event and explain the chain of events that followed leading to Armageddon or world peace of some other earth-shattering conclusion.

      For example: My friend once gave me "Donald Trump has a heart attack," and this is the story I told:

      Donald Trump suddenly starts suffering severe chest pain while drinking in the top floor of one of his towers. His disorientation from alcohol and pain causes him to knock around his things and send a vase out the window. The vase falls and crashes right in front of a bicyclist, who swerves out of the way and careens into traffic, causing a multi-car pileup which kills a Russian ambassador. The Russians, paranoid as they are, see this as an attack and launch the missiles that start World War III.

      And so it goes.

      Here will be our starter:

      "Avatar didn't break records, and instead was a box office flop."

      Again the days have been interesting. With the in-laws out of town my wife and I get to take care of her brother. It's like having a training kid for my own son, who will be born in less than 2 months. Anyway, here's an important image.

      I enjoy the community videos, particularly the Things To Do In, and I'm hoping to make my own soon, so this info is good to have. Thanks, guys! Anyways, the RDIs should start appearing in the morning again tomorrow, as I don't want this to be a last minute thing. Cheers!

      Interesting day. Odd work, baby-sitting kid brother-in-law, completely forgot about my RDIs, fun stuff. I asked a friend for a random word and she said turnip. This is Google's first image for turnip.

      It comes from the Defeat Diabetes foundation. Given that I'm at risk, maybe I should eat more turnips. The things you learn.

      It's weird when you try to type pig latin. Anyway, I googled '1' and this was the first thing that didn't include the number.
