Berkshire Halthway is a holding company which manages companies like Geico, Benjamin Moore, and Pampered Chef and had a revenue of $98.5 billion in 2006. Warren E. Buffett, CEO is the third richest man in the USA (Forbes, April 2007). Buffet is known for his cheap and frugile lifestlye and this is probably why he will not invest in a web designer for his multi-billion dollar company. The website for Berkshire Hathaway looks as though a middle school student prepared for a Miscrosoft Word project. I guess in their line of business they do not need to impress but really only a couple dollars and you can atleast get a professional look.

Hint: I need some side work

I've been quiet and reserved for most of my life. I can not remember exactly when it clicked in or if its just been there forever. I've thought about it and I'm sure a lot of those close to me think about it...what makes me so damn quiet? So here's an attempt at list that I will start and add to as time goes on.

  • I do not like to ask stupid questions - most people like to ask questions just to make conversion, I only like to ask questions when I really want to hear the answer.
  • I do not like to lie - It seems, at least to me, that most big talkers are also big liars. Half the crap coming out of their mouths is either lies or big exaggerations of what really happens. I keep it real and to the point.
  • My mother named me Tim - So I took it upon myself to be Timid
  • I'm an introvert - Most people think this is the same as being shy but they are wrong there's a good article here:

  • Abraham Lincoln is my role model: He once said "'Tis better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt."

    There are some times I think of something to say but quickly put in reserve.

    I may add some later.. but yeah... now you know and do not have to ask.

    Some one from the sellers of this energy drink must of urged this guy to file this suit. Just think of the sales increase.

    A man has sued the maker of the health drink Boost Plus, claiming the vitamin-enriched beverage gave him an erection that would not go away and caused him to be hospitalized.

    The lawsuit filed by Christopher Woods of Manhattan said he drank the nutrition beverage, which is made by the Novartis pharmaceutical company on June 5th, 2004.

    Novartis' Boost Plus Web site describes the drink as "a great tasting, high calorie, nutritionally complete oral supplement for people who require extra energy and protein in a limited volume."

    Woods' court papers say he woke up the next morning "with an erection that would not subside" and sought treatment of the condition. The 29-year-old says he underwent surgery that day for implantation of a Winter shunt, which moves blood from one area to another.

    The lawsuit, filed late Monday, says Woods had problems that required a hospital visit and medical procedures to close blood vessels on his penis.

    Woods' lawsuit seeks unspecified damages. A spokeswoman for the drug company says the company did not comment on pending litigation.


    I'm out to get me some now... ah maybe not

    What? .. Let me explain...

    First before you spend(ask for) a favor you have to make sure you enough in the bank. Ask yourself have I done something for this person that would make them want to help?

    Bank your favors Always invest your favors so when you'll need a favor you can withdraw.

    Make sure your investing in the right favor funds
    Ask yourself: Has the fund helped me when in need? Am I just putting all my favors in and not getting any favors in return? You want to make sure you your getting a good return on investment.

    Limit your loans Nobody likes debt. If you have a a favor loan make sure to repay quickly. Interest does accrue and is unfortunately not a viable tax deduction.

    I made my blog available in rss so it would be searchable with Google Blog Search. It seems like I have to design my whole site around google's antics :/.

    The next upgrade might be to add smilies to the blog so when I feel like making stupid faces like :O it changes it to a face.

    Here's the link to the .rss until I add a permanent link.

    I updated the rss feed so the format is nicer and easier to read. Before the html was showing as text.

    I've been thin all my life. And by now, since I am 26 years of age, am tolerable to the fact that I will never be of average weight but slightly less. A lot of people made riches off publishing their guide to weight loss and often people encourage me to do the same. I've meant for years to do so however have come to a block in the road on all occasions. However I do now know the recipe and will now write it here for free without any published book title "Tjs Diet" or ever clever naming scheme. The secret to thinness is to fidget for whatever worth. Never stay still.. if you sitting move you are leg up and down in a fast uncontrallable motion ...if you are waiting for company to arrive walk around your house in circles to they arrive...if you are sleeping, move around the bed so much that when you wake your sheets are no longer on the bed... chew your pens to the ink fills your mouth... when you are nervous have your hands tremble in an uncontrollable fashion so when your passing a drink to a friend the drink splashes to the ground... make constants trips to the fridge open it, see nothing you like and close the fridge, open again and repeat just to close again and take nothing...

    These are some of the things I do every day without noticing. These are the things I think make it impossible to gain weight. Unfortunetely for those who do not fidget I do not beleive that controlable fidgeting is a weight loss possibility.

    I'll try to conitinue when I'm sober...

    Joost (pronounced 'juiced') is a system for distributing TV shows and other forms of video over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology, created by Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis.

    Watch your favorite shows from MTV, Comedy Central, and WB on your computer.

    I have the program and I gotta tell you I'm quite impressed. There's not that much programming available but they do have some cools shows and the quality is decent too.

    Joost sign up is currently an invite-only basis.

    The good news is I got invites so leave a comment with your email address and I will be nice enough to send you an invite.


    Update: The Joost software seems to be very tempermental and will no longer load up. I checked the forums and it seems a lot of users are having the same issues as me. It's not worth the hastle so I uninstalled the program and will wait for

    a.)better software AND
    b.)more programming.

    Unfortunately, I can no longer offer invitations as you need the program installed to send invitations. The alternative is to goto and "Sign up for Joost beta" and you should receive an invite in a couple days.
