–adjective, screw·i·er, screw·i·est. Slang .
crazy; nutty
disconcertingly strange
absurdly peculiar or impractical; ridiculous

Every definition fits. How so?

In the past four years we have had our current phone number. Yet, calls for Martha Diaz still occur. Granted they are not arriving as fast and furious as in the first several months. Still, not one month goes by that we do not get a call for Martha Diaz.

People promise to remove our number from their calling list. It appears they do that. Apparently new callers have a reason to call and request to speak with Martha Diaz. Perhaps a collection agency has bought up old accounts from another agency and is making their effort to collect a bad debt.

This has gone beyond "annoying." I would miss the humor (yes, humor) of it if the calls were to stop. It is insanely (i.e., subconsciously driving me crazy) funny. Does Martha know just how [in]famous she has become? I wish there was a way to determine the answer to that question.

What condition exists in the society whereby callers attempt to reach someone at a phone number unlinked to that someone for four years. That is 1,461 days (counting an extra day in a leap year).

GE Buying ‘Tens of Thousands’ of EVs

"It makes sense that a company called General Electric would be bullish on cars with cords. But even by that standard the company is diving into the deep end, with what it says will be the biggest order ever placed for electric vehicles."

We definitely need a ubiquitous charging infrastructure. How wonderful it will be to year-after-year continue to reduce our nation's reliance on fossil fuel.

In due time everyone will find an electric car affordable.

Facebook Founders Put $170,000 Into [Pot] Pot

"According to Proposition 19 campaign filings, reported by ABC News, Sean Parker, he of the nasal infractions in "The Social Network," has donated $100,000 to this California ballot measure that seeks to legalize pot in the state.

"He is following the lead of his fellow Facebook co-founder, Dustin Moskovitz, who reportedly already donated $70,000 to support the same cause."

Decriminalization of marijuana possession and the legal protection for growing cannabis is good. This opens the door for local state governments to tax the possession, cultivation, and transportation of the substance.

Marijuana is already California's largest cash crop.

iPod Shuffle

Say you’re listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. Just press the new VoiceOver button on top of your iPod shuffle, and it tells you. You can even use VoiceOver to hear the names of playlists and switch between them. And if your battery needs charging, VoiceOver tells you that, too.
A French love song. A Spanish bolero. An Italian cantata. Your music library has songs from all over the world. That’s why VoiceOver speaks 25 different languages. So it can tell you song titles and artists in their native tongues or any language you choose.

Mine for only $49.
