I am not sure how much time after a running a half marathon you are supposed
to take off but if I am going to every write that book about running two
half marathons over the course of two weeks then I would need to get back
into the flow of things.
Went out to the Marina Green a bit early and I wished I was a kite. We ran
four miles which was from the Marina Green to what used to be Houston's or
close to my old office back in 2005 to 2006. Used to walk from that spot to
the spot o toiling. Even though running through Pier 39 and Fishermans Wharf
involves a lot of tourist dodging, I like it.
Afterwards we went to the Bitter End pub Quiz where we reclaimed the title
like Ali in Zaire <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/the_rumble_in_the_jungle>.
We had a large team like the Les Humphries
Singers<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/les_humphries> but
some of us were like Jurgen
Drews<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/j%c3%bcrgen_drews>and the others
were like the guy with the Samurai Sword. The music round
included Kung Fu Fighting <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/j%c3%bcrgen_drews>.
They should have more Simpsons questions. Turns out there is a Simpsons
Futurama Cross Over
Book<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/futurama/simpsons_infinitely_secret_crossover_crisis>
.

On another note, there has been quite a bit of news about the Space
Program<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/j%c3%bcrgen_drews>.
I like the idea of more private companies getting involved with exploring
space. An example is the X Prize <http://www.googlelunarxprize.org/> is
helping to encourage innovation. Going to the Moon was good for the United
States as it got quite a few people interested in math and science. A
government could build an interstate highway system but probably not an iPod
or Google Docs (use many government websites and it is like time travel back
to 2002)
I also like non-manned space exploration as there is no cost for space ice
cream <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/freeze-dried_ice_cream> or getting
people back but they are obvious limitations on what a computer or robot can
do. I am excited about the discovery of extrasolar
planets<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/extrasolar_planet> .
An example of the private sector beating the public sector is how long it
took for the NASA page to load compared to Wikipedia. On another note, the
Wikipedia was updated with twenty two more planets compared to the NASA
page.
