my friend's father has built some pretty awesome kayaks. when i was down in miami over winter break, we went exploring between miami and miami beach on the prototypes. now that they've been manufactured you can purchase them off the SunFin Kayak website. they are definitely the best recreational sit-on-top kayaks on the market; great value for the price ($600).

bombs in israel
both of my parents are from Israel and much of my family is there. some assholes in gaza regularly (multiple times daily) shoot rockets into the region where my grandparents live. a few rockets hit sderot when i was in the region last summer. i've been concerned about the recent escalation of violence in the area. everyone really needs to stop bombing eachother. it really doesn't accomplish much. just incites fear, hate and violence. it's not like you can bomb people into liking you. it's tactless, shitty diplomacy. Frankly every time we kill someone's father, a whole new generation will grow up with animosity. I dunno how to fix the situation, but we really need to start some communication among all the people of the region.
