Wolf Blitzer is the host of a news cast on CNN called the situation room.
I guess that explains it... I don't watch TV basically at all, and we don't get cable. I sat myself down one day and realized I was paying more and more money each month to watch shorter and shorter bits of crappier and crappier programs (y'know, as we channel surf during commercials, and by the time we get back to the original program it's already the next
round of commercials) in between more and longer commercials, and gradually spending more and more hours of my lifespan doing so, and I says to meself, "Self, this is a stupid waste of lifespan and money, to pay to watch commercials..."
I pulled the plug, got out of the box, and never looked back.
So, instead, I do super dweeby things, like this:
I spent the winter doing mineral profile studies and research, and closed in on my Magic Juice recipe which was launched with the new improved Water Factory. The shreemps seem to be diggin' it, I can say... more data on that in a few weeks, but I can tell from observation already that there is good stuff happenin' in that water, now.
This weekend, I calculated the per dose cost of Mosura Mineral Plus
, Fluval Shrimp Mineral Supplement
, and DK's Magic Shreemp Juice (DKMSJ)
. Not even including the cost of shipping, and assuming a standard dose of bringing water from GH zero to GH 5 (in German degrees of hardness, that is) in a 20 gallon volume of water, I calculated:
Mosura Mineral Plus
: $1-2 per dose (depends on the pH of your water, and how sloppy their quality control was in making your batch)
Fluval Shrimp Mineral Supplement
: $1.50 per dose
: one cent per dose ($0.01)
So go ahead... spend your lifespan toiling, to earn the money to pay your cable bill and for designer products...
...or get sporting, and become a Mad Scientist!
