Its been really busy lately and I haven’t found time to blog that much. This post however is so hilarious, sad and amazing all at the same time that I just had to note it. Its a recording of a customer’s call to Verizon and the Verizon CSRs can’t distinguish dollars from cents. Just listen to it…

For everyone who complains of math and why you need to go through all those basic arithmetic exercises in school, here’s a perfect example of why math is needed in real life.


Noah Kagan has a list of what to look for when you get the cravings for Mexican food. Here’s how to identify authentic Mexican restaurants:
1. They serve horchata. Mexican sweet cinammon drink.
2. They don’t have any advertisements outside the door.
3. They don’t have white people working there.
4. They charge extra for chips.
5. The place is not the cleanest out there.
6. It has the word “la” or “el” in its name.
7. The burrito must cost less than $5.

After all my experiments in the Bay Area, I completey agree with this list. My favorite is Taqueria El Grullense in Palo Alto, CA.

This kid is just amazing; the tabla is one of the tougher Indian instruments to learn, let alone master, and this kid is well on his way there! The amazing thing is that he has received no formal training. His parents are looking for an appropriate teacher to further develop his unusual skills. The family is based in New Jersey. Please let me know if you have any recommendations/guidance.
