How to waste time when you are not feeling well

leave a comment »

  1. Read an article about former Rhode Island Senator Lincoln Chafee supporting Barack Obama.
  2. Read about Rhode Island on wikipedia
  3. Find out that “Rhode Island” is actually the name of an island. The state is officiall called “The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations”. I can see why they dropped the last part.
  4. Find out that Rhode-Islanders speak in a non-rhotic accent
  5. Find out that no one is sure where the General American accent originated. Weird.
  6. Find out that what distinguishes a New York accent from New Jersey is that NJ is rhotic, while parts of NY, Mass, Conn, and Maine have non-rhotic accents. Think Peter Griffin from Family Guy.
  7. Find out the The Angry Video Game Nerd is a “Notable speaker with a New Jersey Accent“, listed just below Bruce Willis. No wonder why I think of him as an upstanding individual. He doesn’t have a “funny accent”.
  8. Hey, he’s from Seaside Heights. Go figure.
  9. Eat soup and watch Angry Video Game Nerd videos. Of the Power Glove: “it’s easier to do a hand stand while taking a shit”
