My Personalized License Plate

It took a few weeks but it’s finally here!

Yes it’s true, I ordered a personalized license plate. (find your own at Service Arizona.com).

You may be thinking Sean, you aren’t the “Personalized Plate” kind of guy…  What gives?

Unfortunately, not all plates are created equal… Below are some types of plates which IMHO give people with personalized plates a bad rap…

  1. Arrogance
    OK Let’s take “DA MAN” as an example… would you feel “silly” getting into “DA MAN’s” Car after being asked to leave your job? humiliating really.
  2. Plates with numeric operators..
    HotGuy1 seriously folks.. If HotGuy isn’t available please respect yourself enough to pick something else.
  3. The plate is only significant to the driver..
    What a silly premise..  If other people don’t get it… what’s the point of putting it on your car? That’s like inventing a new language that only you understand and walking around trying to talk to people.. craazy.

Of course, not all Personalized Plates are BAD.  Some are very clever or even meaningful to a larger audience.

Why I chose to get a personalized plate…

  1. Contribute revenue for our great state.. (additional $75)
  2. Make a statement about the importance of being an Organ Donor.
  3. To see what would happen.
  4. It makes me smile 😀

Alternative Fuel Methodology from MIT CANES

Check out this Alternative Fuels Article from MIT…

In conclusion, it is found that the concept of alternative liquid fuels produced from nuclear hydrogen and captured carbon dioxide is viable. There is abundant CO2 for use and the hydrogen can be produced with proven technology.

There is also evidence that nuclear power can be utilized in the production of oil from sand and shale.

What does this mean for us?
The Smart Guys at MIT can help reduce symptoms of global warning and dependance on foreign oil.

Right on MIT, Right on.

Thoughts on Religion

Excellent Quote today…

There is no religion without love, and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast, it is all a sham.

Anna Sewell (1820-1878)

Lead = Violence…

A Reuters article reports that Lead is Linked to Adult Crime and Brain Damage

Those with high lead levels before birth and during early childhood had higher rates of arrest than those with lower lead levels. About 55 percent of the now-grown children had at least one arrest, 28 percent involving drugs and 27 percent serious motor vehicle violations.

I think this is a long shot.. I would like to know more about the arrest records of the control group. What is a serious motor vehicle violation? fatalities? injuries? parking tickets?
