The Pool Project

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about this site

Oh wow, are you still doing that?

Yes, Yes I am.

Did you know that your writing changes perspective a LOT? Sometimes you write in the first person, and sometimes in the third person? i.e. "Dustin wanted to jump on the..." and "When I first got the idea..."?

Yes, I do know that. I also know that REAL people didn't ask these questions. This is just a list of questions I think people MIGHT ask, maybe if they ever wrote in. We also use the third person plural sometimes, when the other voices come out and play.

Did you know you stink?

Stinking is purely subjective. Some people LIKE the fetid odor of foot powder and stale cigarette smoke

Good Lord man, don't you have any sense of style?

Check saturdays for my own personal sense of style. Yes, I do go out in public like that. My dress on weekdays is constrained by my corporate job, so it's pretty boring. Saturdays is the REAL me....yes, I do go out in public like that.

Why did you do that pool thing?

The Pool Project(TM) was a rare coming together of many many factors. Not least of which was my laziness. I was supposed to take down the pool for the winter, but as a flimsy excuse I said I'd simply use it all winter. Then I told some people that I was going to swim in it and put it on the website and my fate was sealed. In short, my mouth wrote some checks that my body had to cash.

Where did you get the idea for this site?

I was at a family reunion completely bored out of my skull, trying to pass the time talking to my cousin-in-law and I was telling her about all the cool websites I could make for her that would increase her social standing at her Junior High. This was one of the ideas I came up with, of course she rejected it outright. I of course saw the vast money making potential and decided to persue it. You're looking at the results.

What kind of camera do you use?

I use a Sony MVC-400. One of the finer CD based digital cameras that Sony makes (at the moment anyway)

Can I send you a T-Shirt that you will wear for me?

Sure! Just email me and I'll send you my mailing address. I've had a couple donations already, I'll usually adjust my pose to best showcase your T-shirt's logos or text.

Jeeze, you've got way too much time on your hands. How much time do you waste on this?

Initially it took me around a week of part time work to get the site designed and set up. It only takes me 4 minutes to do the daily photos. So, not much time anymore.

What's up with the Darth Vader head?

I'm fascinated why people always notice this. It seems like everyone wants to use it to somehow read something into my personality or whatever. The real story is that it's just this case of action figures I've had since I was a kid. It shows up in the photos because it sits on that shelf. It's not specially placed there...that's just where it sits. I imagine if I moved the stuff from my OTHER shelf to the one that shows up in the daily photo, that everyone would wonder where Darth went.

This is a stupid site, and you are stupid because you made it. You have WAY too much free time on your hands. Get a life you loser!
