Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

No, this is not one of those Internet Quizzes that you take and then you get a badge for your blog telling you your coolness rating.  Although… that would be cool.

I’ve mentioned a couple of times my wife’s Patella injury, but not too often.  She’s private and I respect that.  That said, here’s a picture of her insides:

Many have asked for an update and the short update is that she’s been mostly off crutches for the last few weeks, which means she only needs them a little bit during the day.  She does her 2-4 hours of daily rehab and has her hands full with kids home from school and our new puppy Luna.

During the last 5 months, we’ve gone through some rehab equipment – knee braces, immobilizer, stationary pedeler, etc and now I’m ready to sell them on craigslist.  Thing is – I have NO idea what they’re worth.  I definitely don’t want to keep it around in storage and I gotz billz ta pay, yo.

I start googling some of it and one description in particular caught my eye.

knee immobilizer

When would you NOT choose the cool version?!?!?!!

And why aren’t they advertising the “lightweight rigid posterier” more?  Seems there would be a WAY bigger market for that!

What would YOU want to come in a “standard or cool” version?

Maybe I should have a flash animation at the beginning of the blog so visitors can choose Standard or Cool Wayne.  (insert smart comments here).

And lo, the people did comment thus:

    Sometimes that which is cool is not already reliable or the best solution.

    Cool Wayne – pretty much expect consistentcy.
    Cool Immobilizer – may look nice while it’s failing to serve it’s purpose.

    I’d go with Standard. Sounds reliable.

  2. Absurdist says:

    The last time I had a lightweight rigid posterior was in high school. I was 16.

  3. Janna says:

    I have NEVER had a lightweight rigid posterior.
    No, wait…. maybe when I was born.
    I only weighed seven pounds six ounces then.

    I’ve been waiting to be “cool” ever since.

    I’d defnitely pick a ‘cool’ boss over the ‘standard’ version. The ‘standard’ boss at my work is [bleeped out in an effort to keep this blog family-friendly, as per your request]

  5. Winter says:

    I bet the cool version costs more despite the advertising. The cool versions are always tricky like that.

    Cool version fo’ sho’.

    I think Einstein once said something like: “One should always pick the cool version over the standard version. This is especially true if the price remains constant.”

    It might better not to get expectations too high and just offer “Lame Wayne” and “Not so Lame Wayne”.

    When to avoid the “cool” version:

    * when performance is more important than perception
    * when you are so cool that you don’t need to buy it
    * when ordering french fries

Want to comment?

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.


PLEASE help keep this blog family-friendly by refraining from profanity and vulgarity.
