| Sold!

I like your elaborate plan and will sign on! Wait, is enr0n 40 already? Jesus!

Remember when Over 40 was the name of a magazine filled with old-seeming women? Now it's your peer group. The future is here and it's: flapping ball sacs.

(I was thinking the paragraph above could be the caption on some sort of humorous Facebook image? Which would get plenty of likes? I'm not really a visual design guy, though.)

I was in Hawaii for a few days! It was awesome. I ate a lot of plate lunches. Unfortunately, I also got a pretty bad cold. But loco moco has a price! And that price is: flapping ball sacs.

(That one could work too, over a picture of a luau, a spam musubi, or something like that.)

| Life Expectancy > 50 years

As long as we all make it past 50 (at least ONE of us would need to live a little longer) we will make up the cost in on-site registration fees, no problem.  For those of us that remember to pre-reg, I don't remember how much that is, maybe $45(?), so then we'd need to live to be 53.

I like those odds, and I hope to all that is good any right in the world, you all do too!

To better those odds of life expectancy, I plan on bringing a giant-size bottle of tequila and mix and triple sec to Kubla.

| Khansanity?

You have to also figure in our L.H.O.D.- likely hood of death. It's sort of like buying life insurance at this point. How much is the pass verse how many years we have left. Maybe we also need to start placing bets. 🎲💀🎲

| Kublanity... not a very good conjunction between Kubla and Insanity.

Quick! Someone (Enron) get some Google Glass and we'll live-stream the whole thing!  We can output sound to some neck mounted speakers and attach a boom mic to Enron's head so that no audio will be missed!

Lifetime Passes as 40th BDay Gifts

So, I have a plan for all of us to get a Kubla Lifetime Badge, all for the low, low price of a full-price Kubla Lifetime Badge (deferred)!  Hear me out.  Sure, we could all blow our money and each get a badge ourselves, but then many of us would need to explain that one away to our significant others and tell our kids they can't eat this month because daddy spent the money on a shiny piece of plastic that can only be used once a year... so no one wants to do THAT, right??

So instead, as each of us turns 40 (yes, there would be at least one retro purchase :) ) we buy pool our money and buy each other a pass as a birthday present!  In the long run, we would all be spending the same as if we bought one ourselves BUT instead we did it for each other! Pals!

I broached the subject with the Mrs. sometime ago and she was totally, 100% on board with it.  It might help that she just turned 40, so she gets it, but either way - success!

Now we just need to decide who's in, and who's out, then sign a pact and enjoy!

Also, this

It's pretty good!


And I wonder if will now be worth millions on the resale market.  Thank you, Jack Chick!


I can't believe you guys got a Kubla coming up :/

Wish I could go! Damn the children.

Play some new games and tell me all about it!

| TV, or MMMM Consumption

True Detective's 8-episode run has been over for a awhile now, but we just started watching it again. 4-episodes down, it's a pretty awesome show! It's like a REAL slow burn, so it was tough to get through the first couple episodes, but it's getting pretty gnarly. I've avoided spoilers to this point, so it's gonna be fun to get through the rest. HBO GO peeps, watch that shit.

Also, Silicon Valley is super funny. I think it's also only 8-episodes but they're 30 minutes, so that can probably be binged in a night or two.

I don't know if any of you have Showtime, but they've got a good new show called Penny Dreadful. Set in Victorian England, it's very similar to League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in that it mashes-up literary characters into one story, but it's pretty friggen dark and scary. There's some Dracula, Frankenstein, and Dorian Gray characters in there, but it's not as wink-wink as the League books. Only 2 episodes have popped so far, but they're GOOD. There was this long seance scene at a high society party where the shit got real, and it was just awesomely tense. And for you Dr Who fans, one of his companions is on the show playing a hooker with consumption - so there's some hot sex/bloody-coughs scenes for your enjoyment. MMMM, consumption.

Or go outside and ride a bike, you couch potatoes.
