This is a funny 911 call clip. Some lady called for police assistance because the Burger King staff weren't giving her a correct Western burger. I love the 911 operator's reponse.
California, the "hippy" state, has a plan to get rid of obesity via... (brace yourself)... STERILIZATION of overweight men!
Here are a couple of web sites that you may find of interest:
Some kid in Australia TOTALLY F'ed himself up, WHILE DUNKING A BASKETBALL!!!
It's things like this, the PodShirt, that upset me. I've had ideas like this for a long time, but don't have the time/money/connections/energy/gumption to start a business and make CRAZY money.
I've had a little cough for a few days now, nothing big, just a little phlegm and a dry cough.
I had read the original "Credit Card Prank", and laughed. I was funny, and I almost wanted to try it myself, but when you have a family, lawsuits and jailtime are things you don't want to risk for fun anymore.
Religion is good. It can give someone a purpose. For some, it can be a guide to life. How some express their belief can be scary.
Today I went to my godson's 3rd birthday party. On my way there, I stopped off at 7-11 to get a couple of bags of ice. As I was fixing a cup of coffee (my new vice), there was a guy in the store playing ringones on his cellphone, LOUDLY!
Today, I went to Circuit City to return some crappy thing I bought on their site. I was next on line, and had a few people behind me, when some older guy (in his 50's) just walks up to the counter and stands there. Like there was no line!
Meet "Banksy". He's an artist, based in Britain, who likes to "shake things up".
A Filipino grad student came up with a new technology which "puts fish to sleep without the need for water". Sounds stupid? Sounds useless? NOPE!
You're a girl, sitting in the studio, on live TV... Just hanging out, having a good time. When someone starts to play the video from "The Ring"! Even if it was only a movie... That's not something to do to people.
At The City College of New York, a slab of concrete fell (appears to be from the 12th floor), and the entire building was closed until further notice. You can see wood panels in place where the slab fell from.
The New York Daily News has a "Scratch N' Match" game with cash prizes of up to $100,000. Lots of people, including myself, follow the game each week hoping to win even one of the smaller prizes.
Physics is a very interesting subject. Take, for example, the tesseract.
If you don't know what they are, I'm not even going to describe them. Just look it up.
A County District Attorney (so you already know it's something serious) wrote letters to 582 parents of truant students. 41% didn't show up! 241 parents missed the meeting! Even though there are legal consequences. Meaning, they can be held responsible, and can be jailed for a year. A YEAR!
We NewYorkers (not "NEWYORKER" or "Newyorker") are a different breed. You can't quite pin us down, but once you start to understand us... you'll always know us.
Saw this news article about a new zero-emission motorcycle. ZERO-emissions, which means it's a great answer a lot of the engine-emssions pollution problem. So why isn't this going into production right away? What could be holding this up?
This is funny. Three police are seeing how it feels to be tasered. Look at how they react. Looks like The Three Stooges.
During one of the recent, very cold snowfalls, my friend noticed something in the snow outside his office window. Something... odd.
A friend of mine was moving today, and he asked me to rent a U-Haul truck for him. As the guy at the counter is reading off the usual items off the agreement, when I heard something that sounded weird. And, he said it quickly too.
I was watching "Maximum Exposure" aka "Max X", it's one of those home movie/video clip shows. You've probably seen tons of these clips on TV and/or on the Internet. I was watching a "When Animals Attack" type episode. And this is when I get upset with people, as a species.
It's now the "Ides of March", BEWARE!
I just saw this documentary entitled "Dope Sick Love", about two drug-addicted couples and how they go through life. Three things that I took note of:
Another list, except this one is still currently being constructed.
I love these "top 100" lists.
The Cube at Astor Place (NYC) is gone!! Where did it go? That thing has been spun by so many! It's a landmark.
Ok, I finally decided to get started on this blog. I'll just post about this or that. So for my first REAL post...
