My Nerdy Stuff

First! Comment and Random Stuff

Not being able to sleep in on the weekends has it’s pros and cons.  Cons: not sleeping for 12 hours.  Pros: having what feel like longer more productive days, being more likely to get to sleep earlier to get back into the week, and being able to shout “First!” when I’m awake before anyone else.  It’s that last one that I’d like to bring special attention to.  There are two main reasons why I do not understand this “first”

1) OBVIOUSLY you’re the first person to comment!  Comments on every blog or video service or most other commentable things are ALWAYS ordered chronologically, so if anyone really cares who the first person was, they can simply go to the oldest comment.

2) Why in the world would you waste space on the internet with something that: A) has been said millions of times already and B) adds absolutely zero content to the discussion?

Bonus points to the person who comments with “first” and even more bonus points to whoever can explain the appeal of “first!”


Other random notes:

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer had it’s moments, but when the only jokes that a movie can make are about the blind girl, that’s just sad.

Julie threw her first family party yesterday (cookout with swimming and lawn games), and it was a huge success.  She did a great job and threw a party which everyone had a great time!  I sure hope she does it again sometime soon!

It’s 9AM right now, so that means that the men’s final match at Wimbledon is just about to start.  My prediction is that Roger Federer is going to win the first set -> Rafa wins the next one -> and Roger wins the last two (the fourth in a tie break) to beat Borg’s record of most consecutive Wimbledon championships (6 in a row?!  That’s nuts!!).  Let’s see how close I am to predicting Federer’s success correctly!

  3. Yeah yeah Brian.. good call on that one… I was fine with Nadal winning (I’m really a big fan of each of them!), but I just really wanted to see Federer top Borg’s 5-in-a-row. Nonetheless – it was QUITE an awesome match to watch (kind of took up my whole day, but I was perfectly fine with that!).

    Alex! So close!!! But you bring up another good point – the first 3 or 4 people to comment on some videos/blogs ALL say first.. even though they’re not!! It takes 2 seconds to say first… and if they really want to be first, then they should verify that they are, indeed, going to be first – so they should just click refresh before making a fool of themselves.. just my two more cents.
