It's unfortunate that we have to watch something like this. It is often hard to watch; it pushes your anxiety buttons. It is scary. But I wholeheartedly recommend everyone watch this video on protecting yourself during police encounters:
The advice is clear and concise, and by simply watching the videos, know that at least I feel somewhat more prepared to deal with police encounters, whatever they may be.
It's sad to have to recommend this, but the times we live in demand it. Only can each of us protect ourselfs when confronted by authority. I've suffered with deep-seated anxiety over confronations and authority most of my life due to my anxiety disorder(s?), but certainly this video was most helpful.
Good luck, everybody.
What happens when you mix James Earl Jones clips from his other movies with Darth Vader footage?
Did you know:
* Of course, you cannot reach the speed of light, though you can asymtope towards it. Also, I believe this is in the frame of reference of being on the ship accelerating, for you Relativsts out there.
Okay, so maybe I'm justed dumb, but I always kinda assumed a Tanuki was just a racoon (the Japanese word for them). But actually, it's a kind of dog (not unlike a fox) that looks like a racoon. I want one!

What I currently can't stop listening to:
If you like video game remixes, Super Mario World, pianos, or any of the above, check it out.
You need to check this out.
Star Trek and Monty Python. Trust me, when I heard that, I didn't think it would be good either. But it made me type out "oh em gee," something I thought I never would have to do. In otherwords, teh greatness.
Well, it's been a long, frustrating, anoying time, but I'm finally ready (well, sort of) to say "Welcome!" Not sort of welcome, you're really welcome, well except for you, but you know who you are; I mean sort of ready. Anyways, the majesty before you is the new subwayfox.net! What? Yes, this is it! Stop snickering there in the back!

Sorry about that. Anyway, on to the site at hand. What exactly is subwayfox.net? What is a subway fox? Why .net? What is with that color yellow? Good questions all. So, here are the quick answers:
No, in all seriousness, this is a place for me, Blair (aka The Author, the webmaster, the fox, foxy, fatso, that jerk, moron, not-so-funny person, video games, or double cheeseburger, amongst others), to share my goings on. (I wanted to add: "...with You (aka You)," but really, this site is collaborative. Or at least as collaborative as I say it is, Bwahahahahaha!!!!). The naviagtion bar lists a whole bunch of stuff that you can see, comment on, etc. Poke around, it's fun.
Right now there isn't a ton of content, but if I waited until there was, I would've waited forever to put this site up and probably never even made a lot of content (Yes, that is a bad thing, you!). So, it'll go up as I find the time. Almost all new things to the site will show up on the front page as well, and if you're interested, click on your RSS feed button to add this site, which will keep you abreast (or at least achest, for the flat-ones amongst us) of updates. What kind of stuff will be here? The stuff going on in my life; the stuff I'm working on and want to share, huzzahs for my friends and insults to my enemies, that sort of stuff. So stayed tuned, or whatever.
I mentioned collaboration, so here is some stuff that you can do right now. Yes, that's right, right now. First and foremost, anyone can leave comments. Try it out! Also, don't hesistate to make an account- amongst other things, it lets you upload a nifty picture to put next to your comments. Occasionaly, there will be polls and stuff (Hey, there's one of them now!). Also, a (at least sort of) cool idea is the Collabarative High Scores page. Check out details in the High Scores section. Which one of us is teh best? Who has teh most esoteric game for us to try? Well, go on over there to find out, I suppose. Also, if you have content that you think would go good here, don't hesistate to let me know. I'll stick it on up.
So anyway, in short (hah!, too late for that), this is subwayfox.net: "A website about nothing at all, so don't get excited"; "Updated at least twice a month... usually"; "(insert slogan here)"; or, as I like to some it all up, "Bah. Whatever." That's this site's mantra, and I'm sticking to it.
In conclusion, this concludes my welcome speach. Any comments? Suggestions? Problems? Thinly-veiled insults? Feel free to shout out! (Then, you might want to type it into the comment box, so the rest of us can see it).
Also be sure to check out the Copyright Information page. Everything on this site is copy-lefted, with only some rights reserved, so check it out, and please, if you're using or citing something from this site, let me know, I'd love to see it!
Happy subway foxing! (subway foxing? subway-foxing? foxing-subways? subwaying with foxes? subwayfox.net'ing?)
