The Big Ugly

Not long ago Man vs Food came to Indianapolis to face the Big Ugly Burger at local establishment Bubs Burgers. I had to give it a shot. I went with some friends, most notably Ryan who had defeated a single burger before and was return to face down the two burger challenge.

I only went for a single burger and here's why: it's a full pound of beef after cooking! I did manage to finish, it but next to Ryan's accomplishment, it looked like I did nothing.

All told I got a little picture of myself put on the wall somewhere featuring the worst hair I've ever had. Meanwhile Ryan got a full 8 by 10 looking like a champion

A week ago Google announced that they were sending out 60,000 free laptops out to testers for their new Google Chrome Operating System. I just found out I was selected when I received this in the mail.

This is the coolest thing ever. The notebook is completely blank of any markings or stickers. It has no caps lock key and the surface is a perfect matte black. It's the antithesis of the shiny over-designed stuff you see at Best Buy today. I'm so proud to be a tester for Google. It's like a Christmas Miracle!
