Did a Plane *Really*...

hit the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001?

I have to admit, this part of 911 has always bothered me a little bit. Apparently, it bothered these guys a *lot* more.

The Myth Of The Flying Car

It's the fantasy of every frustrated driver who's ever been caught in traffic: to push a button, take off, and soar above the gridlock like an airplane. But don't hold your breath. You'll never "drive" a "flying car."

Completely and absolutely *bat shit* crazy, we can put this woman. I understand hating telemarketers but she's gone off the deep end.

What I can't figure out is why the telemarketer didn't hang up on this insane person.

Think You could Do It?

"My name is Kyle MacDonald and I traded one red paperclip for a house. I started with one red paperclip on July 12 2005 and 14 trades later, on July 12, 2006 I will trade with the Town of Kipling Saskatchewan for a house located at 503 Main Street."

On Follow-Up Calls

Hi, is this ______________?
(Executive's name deleted for whiny lawyer reasons.)

Yeah. Who's this?

Jeremy Slater. You know, the awesome screenwriter. I'm a big fan of your work, by the way. Especially the way you directed Jurassic Park. And that other one...what was it called? Snakes on a Something. Bus? Plane? Plane, right?

Nose Candy of a Sugary Kind

Am I getting old or is this a really stupid, *disgusting* idea?

"Hose Nose" is a new offering from San Diego, CA-based Kandy Kastle. The nose is filled with "Candy Slime". It appears to have elastic straps on the back, as if you're supposed to wear it over your real nose.

The package is marked, "Catch It On Your Tongue", presumbly allowing you to wear a novelty nose that leaks sugary mucus on your mouth.

Why I Love the World Cup

My morning ritual used to go like this: Roll out of bed at 7:15, play with my daughter for a few minutes, suck down 185 ounces of coffee to wake up, then answer e-mails and zoom through Web sites for a couple of hours as "SportsCenter" blares in the background.

Then the World Cup started.

How Important Are Computers in Your Life?

So...ABC News is "producing a report looking at the increasing power and importance of technology in our lives and the future of artificial intelligence."

They say, "We want to know how important you think technology is to our world. What would your life be like if computers suddenly disappeared?"

OK...fair enough....but read further. The last paragraph says, "All the responses will be reviewed for possible inclusion in a two-hour special about potential global threats to humanity."

WTF? What does that have to do with how important computers are in your life?

Moon(s) Over Laguna Niguel

Twenty years ago (1979), at The Mugs Away Saloon, a K.T. Smith told his buddies he'd buy a drink for all who would run outside to the rail road tracks and "moon" the next train, which many did. The mooning tradition has prevailed, but there is no longer a volunteer to buy free drinks for thousands of "Mooners".

How Do You React when Scared?

Probably better than this guy.....
