The world denies our existence, but we just want to be understood. There are more of us than you think.

Max Lucas once accidentally got locked in a vending machine room in the middle of the night. He escaped by climbing out of a window.

2009-02-13 19:31:01   DHL is ending all express delivery in the US and laying off most of its workers in the country. —MaxLucas

2009-03-26 07:46:05   Hi Max. I really appreciate your recent edits on the Chico Wiki! Thanks!! —RyanMikulovsky

2009-04-29 22:01:54   I have absolutely no will power in avoiding cheese. But the idea of an animal-product free lifestyle has always been appealing to me. —RyanMikulovsky

2009-04-30 06:54:49   Yes that is about where I stand. I'm a bit flexible but do avoid meat a large percentage of the time. My kitchen has only cheese as an animal product right now. 99% of the time I see no need for meat and honestly I can't afford it anyway! Also helps that I hate touching raw meat so typically cooking it is out of the question. —RyanMikulovsky

2009-05-06 21:58:52   Wow, it is nice knowing another transfer student. I tried to get into Primero but they never opened up the waiting list. Student Housing had no clue what they were doing providing transfers housing this year so I ditched them and got my own apartment. It was amazing how little they knew about the program after their website was updated advertising it. I might try to take advantage of the transfer student programs. Certainly wouldn't hurt. Interestingly several students in my Physics III class are prior military (worked the technical side of things). However I tend to not associate with prior military since most at Butte are Army or Marines and were infantry — I've nothing in common. I'm very much looking forward to living in Davis! —RyanMikulovsky

2009-08-24 11:45:49   Are you sure about the Chase ATMs? The ATM locator on their website doesn't list them, but maybe that's because they're new? —jsogul

  • I saw and used a Chase ATM at the East Covell CVS, but I haven't seen the one at the West Covell CVS. Maybe I just haven't looked hard enough? —jsogul

2009-10-27 23:47:47   awesome gnomage —StevenDaubert

2010-05-25 21:16:34   Hey Max, thanks for all the great edits today. —TomGarberson

2010-07-25 22:10:11   Hi Max, I'm inclined to remove the Fry's coupon, since they aren't a local chain and aren't even the closest electronics store. IMO the coupon page would be best reserved for stores that are actually in or near Davis. But perhaps this is worth discussing. —DonShor

2010-09-01 23:08:43   So is that section of the California Civil Code (on the CC min purchase page) now null? —EdWins

2010-09-17 16:32:20   Howdy! I noticed that you had added to the Target page with a note about the use of carbon monoxide in relation to meat. I wasn't able to find any information that said that CO is injected into the meat, although wikipedia says that meat is sometimes packaged in an environment that contains CO. I updated the page to reflect that, but if there's some other source that says differently it's definitely open to discussion. —JoePomidor

2010-10-09 17:25:56   Max is the power editor today! —JabberWokky

2010-11-06 17:52:42   Hmm, that does sound pretty straightforward. We're going to be traveling overseas in about a month, so it'll probably wait until after that, but sounds worthwhile. —TomGarberson

2010-11-07 07:19:58   Thanks Max! I think I had only used the "Coin Master" at Safeway before, didn't realize I could get the gift certificates at an actual CoinStar without a fee. Gotta love Amazon credit! —TomGarberson

2010-11-08 21:02:18   Max, thanks for the updates on the flu clinic stuff. It's extremely valuable information. It might be worth adding to the Events Board, too. —TomGarberson

2010-11-20 17:44:25   I've actually never heard the myth that Mennonites don't use electricity. I had a vague (mistaken) idea that that was what distinguished them from Amish, but didn't find out the details until I lived in Pennsylvania for awhile and learned how varied the Anabaptists are. Neat and useful anecdote — I think you really should place it into the main entry so people can read it. —JabberWokky

2010-11-20 19:39:41   It's actually a myth that Amish do not use electricity. They just don't use it casually and they really don't depend on outside power lines (each community is aggressively self-sufficient). As an example, cell phones for business and medical help are quite common (and no, I have no idea how cell towers jibes with being self-sufficient). It's not a matter of how advanced the technology is, it is in how it impacts your life and the community. Modern hospitals, full of all advanced techniques are perfectly fine to use (and the whole community pays the bills of any individual member). Penn State has a decent number of students and townies who are from Amish families, and when I lived there I had more than a few late night back porch discussions about the various groups. I have quite a bit of respect for their choices and history. The historical relationship they've have with the federal government is really interesting (they really don't like to support war in any way, and refuse to pay into Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, preferring to take care of their own). Neat culture, and a really fantastic example of a successful non-traditional culture living by their own beliefs within the United States. —JabberWokky

2011-03-05 20:24:48   Thank you for the accurate information on videos. Sometime people don't speak very accurately. —BruceHansen

2011-03-23 10:44:47   Thanks for the links Max! I'm new at this. :) —TravisLindquist

2011-04-24 23:45:39   How many flavors do they have? If they have only three, then for each soda, you can have eight different combinations, ranging from no flavor added to all the flavors added. —hankim

2011-04-24 23:53:34   Never mind. Read the edit you left on the main 7-11 page. —hankim

2011-05-20 01:38:24   Thanks for the tense fixing!PhilipNeustrom

2011-06-03 05:25:53   C'mon... June 3rd is National Doughnut Day?!?! PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS!!!JabberWokky

2011-06-03 08:11:20   Your doughnuts make me gough nuts! —TomGarberson

2011-07-22 19:33:30   I've admired your posts for a long time, Max. Thanks for speaking your mind on the Borders page. My way of writing pushes buttons, but I appreciate your point of view. —ScottMeehleib

2011-07-26 23:10:06   Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just never could bring myself to summarize all of that. No doubt others will weigh in now that you've set the stage. Again, thanks. —CovertProfessor

2011-08-21 19:16:19   Did Safeway switch over to Coinstar instead of their lame knock-off? —TomGarberson

2011-11-13 18:00:41   they uuh, still cater uuh so technically you can uuh still get uuh stone burgers —StevenDaubert

2011-12-07 17:10:25   I don't think they can actually do that. I'm pretty sure civil limitations can only be done in legislature (District Attorneys, for instance, are often protected from being sued for prosecuting people), but contracts that limit the ability to seek damages — while they are used — don't seem to be enforceable in practice. I'm not questioning the edit: it's well worth noting that they are trying to. I'm just curious as to why they would try to pull that. —JabberWokky

2011-12-07 23:32:11   Okay, but... Say, Clear Channel got sued repeatedly for radio contests despite their lawyers writing contracts that were signed by the contestants prior to participating. The same happens fairly often with other large companies and waivers. —JabberWokky

2014-09-08 23:03:33   Good catch on Anderson Plaza... I really wish I could remember to clean up the Plaza/Mall/Street entries when things change. —JabberWokky

2015-03-29 13:23:56   The original writeup was correct. A robot first stormed the home, knocking in the door (after a first failed attempt), then went through the first floor. Police then followed the robot in. We didn't get flying cars, but we did get this. Welcome to the future! —JabberWokky
