Half Dome lottery update March 2

Ladies and Gentlemen – Boys and girls of all ages –>

After 2 days of the Half Dome lottery application process – the rec.gov site seemed to be working just fine. Records show that about 4500 people submitted applications. The bulk were requesting Saturdays. So your odds are way better mid-week.

Also, don’t over buy – if the HAL-9000 computer picks you for a “win,” and you are asking for 6 permits and they only have 5 left – you will NOT get one.

For the youth in the audience – “G2″ is a Cold War term for intelligence – did you read about the Cold War in school? That was when Russia and the US were going to annihilate each other.

And the HAL-9000 was the “smart” computer from the movie 2001, a Space Odyssey that came out last century. It was very good – despite the odd ending. Rent it.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Traveling in a fried-out combie on a hippie trail, head full of zombie I met a strange lady. Sshe made me nervous. She took me in and gave me breakfast . And she said, ‘Do you come from a land down under? Where women glow and men plunder?’ Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder? You better run, you better take cover. Men at Work
