Elevator for Access by Handicapped People

Rock climbers are more likely to be using this elevator! Take a look if you pass Metropark station on the Northeast Corridor line of NJ transit. Try not to imagine what happens to the poor bloke who wheels himself out . . . .

A closeup with the handicapped accessible sign clearly visible.

I came across these urinals in YU. It's hard to tell from the picture, but if one of these are being used, there's really not much space for a person to stand and use the other. I have no idea what they were thinking when they built this.

Tsezar's Happy Eggs

At first I thought his eggs lookes slightly worried, or sad- poor Tsezars Eggs. Then I tilted the pan and a smile appeared on the bottom! Tsezar's eggs were very happy!

Two kittens

Almost two weeks ago, while leaving shul on Saturday night, I noticed two kittens in an alley huddled together and shivering. We couldn't leave them out there to freeze, so Stacy and I brought them home.
They were scared, cold and hungry little kittens. You'd put out food and they'd scarf it down as fast as possible, then try to hide. Fortunately, by now they've been de-flea'd, de-wormed, (more or less) litterbox-trained, and most certainly fed. So now they're friendlier and much more active.
Now the trouble is keeping them off our furniture, etc. And, after seeing some of their antics, I'm convinced that whoever coined the phrase "curiosity killed the cat" probably had a cat.
Oh, and it seems like we're keeping the little critters. The one with black in its fur is called Gravity and the other is Widget.

Intro to Drawing and

I am taking a course "Intro to Drawing" next semester at Rutgers Newark. I checked the professor up on and it appears that I'm in for a hard time (to remain un-named). For your convinience, I have highlighted the funniest part of this rating in red:

The class itself is decent, but this teacher makes it unbearable. She constantly makes unfunny jokes, and will confuse the hell out of you in class. Not only that but she is VERY ANNOYING. Take another teacher or take another class, but do NOT take her, trust me. This class is torture, it feels like it belongs in a scene from SAW. TERRIBLE TEACHER.

Lucky for me, this student did not take Intro to Drawing with this Prof. my hope is that class I'm taking will be less like Saw, and a little more like being in a scene from scary movie.

It turns out that I'm taking a section with a different professor, this one's report was a lot better:
"I couldve slept and still get an A."

CAD Final Project

Sorry about this being late, youtube was being a pain.

I posted about my Advanced CAD class a little while ago, now it is time to post about the final project for the class. My team decided to modle a mechanical clock, not much more to say. Enjoy (It took me around 9 hours to set up and capture these animations.

Pointless "Use" of Resources and Potential Residences

No optical illusions here, this is approxomately 3 and a half square feet of grass enclosed by a gated fence. For the life of me I do not understand why!

Perhaps it is to prevent homeless from building a house in this corner, truth be told my current roomate (Ike) and I considered this option ourselves upon first passing this spot (well before settling in our current place).

Feed me stray cat

I recently came across a nifty program which allows you to change the "Ready" message on certian printers. So I gave it a trial run:
(The "To" following "FEED ME STRAY CAT" is the beginning of "Toner Low".)
Unfortunately, the YU library's new printing method doesn't allow you print things 0 pages long, so it didn't work there.

Explanation for the Church Notice Boards

  • We clearly see the Church reaching out to the younger Instant Messanger generation
  • They ran out of letters so they needed to make do with what they had
  • Somebody from Newark *stole some of the letters to make their own sign
  • No other letters besides "R" will be welcome, and only the letters "B" and "E" will have blessings by this church
Any other explanations R welcome, BE clever!
