HERE is a cute little typing game. You type text to make your race car go faster and see if you can beat other players on line.

Here is a story of a guy driving a sweet BMW when a wheel comes flying into his car. Ouch.

sick today

Man I feel like hell. Don't know what I got, but it sucks. Mary is home sick too. I am going to be SO bored by the end of the day that I won't be able to stand it.
I saw a show yesterday where the guy built a V8 powered bar stool. Sounds stupid, and it is, but they are really well thought out. They use a hydrostatic tranny and it all fits together really neatly. HERE is the link to the company's site in case you need one.

Well THIS is the most disturbing thing I think I have ever read. Police: Dad confesses to holding daughter captive 24 years

At least this guy just tried to shoot bees with a .22. Alcohol was thought to be involved.

HERE is the transcript from a 911 call in Cedar Rapids yesterday. Pretty funny stuff.

Okay, I could not resist. If you have not seen this one yet, it is Obama giving Hillary the finger. I am sure he did not mean to do it (yea right) but the reaction from his crowd seems to indicate otherwise.

Anybody need a ferris wheel? Hurry over to eBay if you do.

HERE is some serious babinga wood. Wow.

Here is my political moment for the month.

OK. So I lied. Here is more. I was reading about the above debate and found a link on Clicked to Crossfire show where Jon Stewart ripped on them and brought the show down a few years back Worth watching again. I kind of found myself feeling bad for these dumb asses because intellectually speaking, they brought knives to a gunfight. But then again, only a dumb ass would bring a knife to a gunfight. Darwin prevails.

HERE is a 1,000 HP Ford GT. DAAAAAAMN.

Scary stuff

Thought this was interesting. It is about composite beams used in about every new home these days.

Holy crap.

I can't even find appropriate words to describe this. It is a Microsoft music video. Well that should say it all right there.

Down the street is a house that has this little damn plastic guy IN THE STREET in front of their house. It is supposed to tell me to slow down because they have kids playing IN THE STREET. I was coming home yesterday and saw a bunch of kids so I slowed way down. Sure enough, one of them rode their bike right in front of my truck and stopped. I stopped in time and did not crush her. Her friends started to yell at her and she finally turned around to see a big ass black truck about 3 feet from her.
I was so damn mad. Not at the little girl. Little kids do stuff like that. But if you are a parent of a child that age, DO NOT LET THEM PLAY AROUND THE STREET. Just because you put up this stupid-ass yellow guy does not relieve you of your parental duties. Do they think it is like a wet floor sign? "If Snowflake gets killed by a car, it won't be our fault because we put a plastic man with a flag out there" I am wondering if I run over the dumb ass plastic guy with my truck if I can sue them to repaint my bumper. Or I can just tell them that I had to swerve to miss one of the kids that they were not watching and ran the little yellow plastic bastard over instead.

-I like this guy for this story as well as this one.

Well, this girl is full of crap. She uses numbers from 1990-2000 to prove that there is no influx of crap from Chicago into Iowa City over the last few years. She is a grad student in social work, so I guess that works out well for her. Did not help us much, though. Dumbass.

So I have been building some shelves for above Alex's desk, and naturally I was just a little bit short of wood. I am using MDF and painting it white to match the desk I made her a while back. I got 2 4x8 sheets of MDF, which are VERY heavy. 85 lbs I believe. And, btw, they are 4'1"x8'1". So anyhow, I am about to lift one and a random Asian guy asks me if I want help. Sure I says. Very nice. Then I get to the truck and there is an older Amish looking gentleman with a beard sitting in a pickup truck. He gets out and helps me load them into the truck. Very nice. So I get home and have to unload them. I was actually okay up to this point and could have loaded them in by myself, but it was easier to have help and it was nice of them. But now I need to drag them downstairs to the basement. I look around for more random strangers to help me and there are none. So I go ask my son to help and he says, "oh, man... that stuff sucks."
So if any of you are thinking about having kids, you might want to instead consider adopting a random Asian guy or an older Amish guy.
I have been playing a lot of Gears of War on the xBox 360. Damn that is fun. I have quite a few friends on line and we all seem to meet up at night and take turns blowing each other up. My screen name is "Otis the Drunk". I thought Leo and Steve would enjoy that. Sadly, not many people understand the reference. When Stove gets a 360, we can play online. It will be a ton of fun. Here is a clip. Notice the Lancer. It is the huge ass machine gun with a chainsaw across the bottom. Lots of fun.

Kid makes his own paint-ball shootin' 1/2 scale tank. Very impressive.
