who said..

Who said basketball playas aren't smart? These are college students, damnit. Show them the respect they deserve. Especilly these ones from West Virgina. Okay, I probably won't not have noticed it either if I were them, but it is a funny picture none the less. Thanks Mary.

in case

In case you can't get into the site listed at the bottom of yesterday's post, here is the screen shot of John McCain's site. This is the best gag yet and how it was pulled off was priceless. I had a hard time getting in earlier today. I guess this guy is getting a lot of traffic.

A while back I made a joke about how the zune colors came to be. Here is a site that lets you make cartoons, so I made a version of that joke.
Birth of the zune

Just because...

Just because you are young, black, and funny, does not mean you know how to drive a supercar. In case you don't know, that is an Enzo Ferrari. Easily a million bucks of history he is driving here.
Eddie Griffin Crashes Ferrari Enzo - Click Here for more great videos and pictures! *warning.. this is kind of hard to watch*

-I don't know if this video is real or set up, but what is real is that Ford recalled thousands of trucks because they are shooting flames out the tailpipe. This video claims to be an example of it. I want to know what the odd ticking sound is. Yes, the truck is a diesel, but it is not that. Anyhow, here's the vid.

-John McCain comes out in support of gay marraiges.. especially between 2 really hot women. Too funny, read the whole story here.

-Ranger Rick came over today and helped us figure out what we are going to plant around the house. We went shopping and got a table and chairs for the patio. Those are nice and we will enjoy sitting back there looking over the pond. Found some low voltage lights at Menard's discounted down to $40 for 8 of them. Gotta love that.

-I went to Matt Hotch's website to see what he has been up to. I have not been there for a long time (almost a year). The site is very nice, but a year ago it was really impressive. He has a new bike there called the Vincent. Pretty bad ass looking bike. The brake disks are attached to the wheels instead of the hub. I guess Ranger Rick's Beul has the same setup. The other bike on Hotch's website has the disk mounted on the drive gear on the gearbox so that the back wheel is clean. Kind of a cool setup also.

Closed on the house today. It was not the happy day I had hoped for, but I am glad it is done and we can get on with it now.

-Fark had this link to a big ass railroad. It is in the basement of our new house. Yea right.

-These are cool as hell. Who doesn't need a box-end fork? Here is the link so Steve can order a set.

I am off work tomorrow. Closing on the old house. Glad to be done with that.

Fark had this one. Just the title alone is worth the click.

So I was thinking alot about the1984 spoof for Obama that has gone viral. Then today it came out who made it. After reading the article it kind of confirms what I was thinking. That the power is shifting now away from the main-stream political machine. I think that was the point he was making in that ad.
But there is also another really big issue here. It also raises accountability issues on how campaigns are run. They said in the article that some organizations are looking to hire him because he made a commercial with such impact, but he could have never done that if he worked for them. So who is to say that some party won't hire some geek under the table to make internet "user" ad's. No rules. No copyright infringement. No accountability. "they" are just expressing their opinions. So far over 2 million people have watched it on YouTube alone.
Stay tuned. I think this is going to be big.

The first kid in this video really cracked me up. Nothing like a good infant belly laugh to put a smile on your face.

OH HELL NO! School in MI bans students from having MySpace accounts. They say that 99.9% if parents support the move. If that is so, then here is another headline: 99.9% of parents in MICHIGAN SUCK ASS! Why would you wait for a school to tell your kids not to do something that you consider bad? Not to mention the fact that where does the school get off telling them what they can do at home.

I spent the day working on the other house. They are going to inspect it tomorrow. I had to take care of a few things before they did. That wound up taking up all day, but it is done.

" I don’t have much time to work on it,” says Olson, a high school senior in Michigan. “It’s more of a weekend project.
The kid is talking about the device he made in his basement that achieves nuclear fusion.
Oh, yea? Well when I was in high school I made a birdhouse!

-HERE is a really great story from Iowa that made it onto Fark.

-If you are going to document your crimes with a digital camera you are stupid. If you leave the camera at the crime scene, then you are beyond stupid. You are these guys.

-So the iPod has been out for over five years. Never have I seen one on sale anywhere. Why would they? Then there is this.

-and finally HERE is the coolest bathtub ever.

Not much going on, but this is on eBay and you need to buy it.
Lots of interesting autos in the "other" catagory on eBay. Worth checking out.

-Here is a Wii that somebody did a Ledgends of Zedla mod on. It was up to $1,200 when I posted. Sheez.

-Here is the coolest pedal powered boat you will see all day.

I don't usually get into the politics thing, but the news is on and they are talking about the illegal aliens getting in-state tuition. WTF? One arugement is that we have already given them a high school education, so why would we leave them in a dead end sitiation and not help them go to college? We did not give that to them. They stole it. Somebody steals your car so you might as well give them your house too? And they say that the country will be better off if they are educated. Where does this money come from? They make it sound like funds are unlimited. No. There is not enough money to help the kids whose parents paid taxes in the state all their lives. Any money that is given to them is being taken away from OUR children. Or raising the price of school for kids whose parents (like me) are just dumb ass white middle class working fools that pay the taxes but can't get any help sending OUR kids to school. Yea, it makes me mad.
Okay, enough of that.
-I am not sure where these numbers come from, but it this is interesting.

day off today :-)

I got up and it was about 60 degrees out and not too windy. So I decided to take the r/c plane out. I won a wireless video camera on the internet a while back and mounted it on top of the plane. Have not gotten to use it yet though. So I went out and got everything hooked up. I have to hook up the receiver to a camcorder and hook up all the batteries. I was afraid that I would forget to check the trim on the plane or something stupid like that since I was worrying about the video. I flew the plane and made a really ugly landing. But when I checked the video, I had forgotten to take it off of pause so I got nothing. DOH! Now it is too windy to go out.
I really messed up my back anyway. Must have turned weird or something, but I am in a lot of pain and really don't see doing much on this most magnificant day. What a waste.
Here is my plan for our world domination. Instead of sending our children over seas to kill these people why don't we just give them all cars and let them do it themselves. Much cheaper and safer for our guys. (and gals)

-HOLY CRAP! I watched this video of a kid flying an r/c chopper. After he takes off i was like, "oh, this is not good". He is all over the place usually inverted. Just amazing. And in the end I am pretty sure he ran it out of gas and auto-rotated down to the ground inverted (no more smoke out of engine) and then flipped it at the end. Not the softest landing but still damn amazing.

Gotta work late this weekend. That sucks, but part of the deal I guess.

-here is a good example of how NOT to fly a helicopter.

-DORK 'o the day award.

Have a good weekend everyone!

It is not as much as I would have liked, and certainly not what it is worth, but we took an offer today. We had 2 families that wanted to see it again today. That is ideal. What is NOT ideal is having 2 squad cars out front of your house arresting somebody when family #2 comes to look again. Figures.
I don't feel great about it, but it will be done and that is worth a lot. It will be nice to know where we are financially and to sleep at night.
So on we go.
Here is a well done drug message from the Reagans. Good stuff.

Sunday Sunday Sunday!

Ann Coulter is a loud mouth bitch. Well that is not news I guess. I am tired of looking at her ugly ass "Hi, I Bill O'Reilly with tits and a bad bleach job" goat-face on TV.

The only thing better....

The only thing better than having a blade on your truck is having a good neighbor that has one :-) I was out working on the dirveway today. There was a huge drift across it and i took the blower to it and then a shovel to work where the truck tracks were. At the bottom was a huge ass ice damn that was going to be a bioitch to break up. My neighbor Scott backed his Ram truck out and ran the blade across it and it was done that quickly. Damn that is nice.
We did not have all that much snow, but the wind was amazing and pushed everything all over the place. I think we are done now.

Here is the best USB powered office toy I have seen. I just wish they showed the interface on the computer that controls it. Great stuff.

Found this on Fark. Seems to be a bit of a cruise missle in flight.
