Happy 4th of July!!!

Click "play" to see them all go BOOM!
16,000 Firecrackers, bundled and hanging from a pipe pole. Forget rolling the whole roll out, it's better to just tape it together and let 'em all blow up!

Sweden vs. England

This is kinda stupid but I'm going to put it up here anyway because it's kinda funny.


Photo Stamps

The USPS finally came up with a good idea. Photo Postage Stamps! These would be great if you have a favorite picture or maybe for a business!!!

Dying to go to Disney

The rides weren't this much fun when I went there ten years ago:
Since 2000, six visitor deaths have been reported at the Disney World theme parks.

Ass Copy

I don't know if this is real or not but it sure is funny!

Who Killed the Electric Car?

Ten years ago electric cars roamed California fast and free. Mysteriously they dissappeared as swiftly as they arrived. Normally I do NOT promote movies but this is definitely one I would love for every American to see. It's called Who Killed the Electric Car and it is a documentary that discusses the main thing wrong with our government and the corporations that run it; GREED. "There are still roughly 1 trillion barrels worth of oil in the earth's crust which means there are over 100 trillion dollars worth of business yet to be done."
It was among the fastest, most efficient production cars ever built. It ran on electricity, produced no emissions and catapulted American technology to the forefront of the automotive industry. The lucky few who drove it never wanted to give it up. So why did General Motors crush its fleet of EV1 electric vehicles in the Arizona desert?

More World Cup hotties

Yet another group of pics from the World Cup.


Big damn lobster

I did not know that a lobster could be caught by fishing from a pier? I wonder what kind of bait he was using?

CLAW blimey! Louie Smith, 16, shows off the monster lobster he caught while fishing from a pier. It weighed 11lbs 3oz and could be 100 years old.

The story has a good ending, he let it go...


Return from heaven

Although I don't believe in heaven, I find the Reincarnation Forum an interesting read because I think I have lived in past lives. In my previous lives I think I was a Chinese fish, and I think I was a turtle in Mexico. In this life I am a human but I wish I was a bird, or a housecat!


German Hooligans riot

I'm posting this because it might be interesting. I can't view it because my computer is a piece of shite. Maybe someday I will get a new computer and come back and watch it (if it's worth it).


Don't ring me again!

The poor guy was just trying to do his job.


The Great Ronaldinho

Here is a link to a youtube video of The Great Ronaldinho who has been very quiet at this year's World Cup.

Townsend Whaling Charts

The Atlantic Ocean was completely fished out of Sperm Whales by the beginning of the 1800's, so these maps that date back before those times are interesting. Our oceans must have been filled with whales before "we" came along.
The 4 charts show the locations of over 50,000 captures of 4 whale species; sperm whales (36,908), right whales (8,415), humpback whales (2,883) and bowhead whales(5,114). Capture locations were transcribed from North American (“Yankee”) pelagic whale vessel log books dating from 1761 to 1920 and plotted onto nautical charts in a Mercator projection by a cartographer.

World Cup Photos

I recently heard that the World Cup was held in the U.S. a few years ago!?! Why didn't somebody tell me earlier? Since we cannot go back in time, here is (another) great collection of photos from this year's World Cup in Germany.


Who the hell is Dane Cook?

I don't know who he is, and I don't care. But he proves that it only takes a tad bit of talent to become a celebrity. Here is an article on the secret to his success:
Cook grew up with a brother and five sisters in Arlington, Mass., graduating from high school in 1990, skipping college to do six nights a week of stand-up in local clubs. Soon he was earning $100 a night. In 1995 his manager secretly invited ABC network execs to a New York gig, which led to a pilot for a hidden-camera reality show. It wasn't picked up, but Cook got $75,000.

Top 10 athlete nicknames

Pistol Pete, The Galloping Ghost, Shoeless Joe Jackson. If you've ever wondered how those guys got such cool nicknames, then this is a good list for you:
Known as "Broadway Joe" for a flashy style (which included wearing full-length fur coats on the sidelines) that would have put him right at home in downtown New York, Namath's brilliance was on display on the field as well.

Namath's New York Jets of the AFL were 18-point underdogs to the NFL-champion Baltimore Colts, but on the Thursday before the game, while lying on a lounge chair in Miami, Namath guaranteed a Jets victory. He then went out and threw for 206 yards, leading the Jets to a 16-7 win.

Incredible Advertising

Adidas is really thinking outside the box with their approach to World Cup advertising.


ADIDAS Fresco, Cologne

Adidas has gone overboard.


World Cup embarrassment

Here is the reason you do NOT want to go to the World Cup. (Image is Not Safe For Work unless seeing a grown man play with his Johnson in public is safe where you work?)


Dude you're getting a bomb

I don't know if this is a true story or not but this person's Dell computer explodes:
AN INQUIRER READER attending a conference in Japan was sat just feet away from a laptop computer that suddenly exploded into flames, in what could have been a deadly accident.

World Cup brackets

Go here to check out the brackets. It's just like college basketball except better, no commercials! Germany just beat Sweden and will move on to the Quarter-finals.


The killer is dead

One down, one to go. I hope the doctor poked her in the eye with a stick to make sure she's not faking it:
ATLANTA - Patsy Ramsey, whose 6-year-old daughter JonBenet's 1996 slaying has never been solved, died Saturday of cancer, her lawyer said. She was 49.

JonBenet was found beaten and strangled in her parents' Boulder, Colo. basement on Dec. 26, 1996. A grand jury investigation ended with no indictments, and no arrests have been made.

The Ramseys said an intruder killed their daughter but a cloud of suspicion hung over the couple.

Patsy Ramsey said she found a ransom note on the back staircase of the family's home demanding $118,000 for the safe return of JonBenet. John Ramsey said he found his daughter's body in a basement room, wrapped in a white blanket eight hours later.

An autopsy concluded JonBenet suffered a skull fracture, and was strangled and beaten.
I find it hard to believe that someone would break into a house, strangle a child, leave a ransom note, and then never get accused or caught...


Welcom to Terror Land

I hate this story. It is a feeble attempt by our government to frighten us into submission. The U.S. government is now arresting people for "allegedly" trying to plan to do something. They never mention the plans for the Sears Tower:
"This group was more aspirational than operational," FBI Deputy Director John Pistole said. But Attorney General Alberto Gonzales described the men as "homegrown terrorists" who "view their home country as the enemy."

Neighbors who watched the men's vigorous exercise regime said the group appeared to be training for something. One of its members was always standing guard outside the small, windowless warehouse in the blighted Liberty City neighborhood.

How do we know they weren't Jehova's Witnesses?

...they were trying to do community service in the area where they grew up, studying martial arts to keep in shape and setting a good example for neighborhood kids.

That does it! NO alleged aspirational terrorists should be setting any examples for any kids!

Officials at the 110-floor Sears Tower said it was business as usual Friday. The building, the tallest skyscraper in North America, has received numerous threats since Sept. 11, but officials said they have never found evidence of a credible threat that went beyond criminal discussions.
I hope it was "business as usual on Friday", there was NO reason for it to be different. There was no threat to the Sears Tower and there NEVER has been. All the records are sealed so we will never know. Do you see those two FBI guys in the pic above? Those are the true terrorists!

Michael Jackson faces

I'm not hating on Michael Jackson I just think this is a cool video of him morphing from a kid to an adult.


Even more World Cup fanatics

These are just more crazy fans.


The old Tiger Woods commercial

Back when Tiger was cool.

World Cup's hottest fans

Nice photo.


Or you can go here and see my complete collection of World Cup hotties!!!

English footballer's have WAGs.

I love English women. They're not fun to look at (Posh Spice), but they enjoy a good party!
England's footballers' wives raised the roof singing "God Save the Queen" as they drank until 4am last night. The players' wives and girlfriends - dubbed the WAGs - danced on chairs and belted out football chants in a bar in Baden-Baden. An onlooker said: "The girls had a great night. They were in celebratory mood because England are through and they know they are going to be here for a while.

Las Vegas goes techno

Get ready for this word, "RFID". It is an anacronym that will soon regrettably be involved in every part of our lives:
Treasure Island, a Las Vegas hotel and casino, has installed a system utilizing RFID to track the amount and type of liquor its bartenders pour. Whenever a bartender pours a drink, the tipping of the bottle turns on both the tag and the measuring device, allowing the spout to measure the volume of liquor poured (in ounces) before the employee tips the bottle back up.

Hanging Monastery in China

The monastery dates back over 1400 years to the Northern Wei Dynasty. However, most of what you see today are reconstructions made during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) Dynasties.

Here's a link to a pic from a different angle.


How big is this page?

That is a big damn website!
This page is 9 quadrillion pixels wide by 9 quadrillion pixels tall. Thus it contains a large number of pixels:


otherwise known as 8.1 nonillion. In scientific notation, that's 8.1x10^30, hereafter shown in the form 8.1e30.

World Cup wide screen

I would love to be there! Does anyone know where the 2010 World Cup will be held?
A large number of the people that went to Germany to watch the Fifa's World Cup could not got hold of tickets to get into the stadiums. We are talking about roughly 40,000 people. This is the Frankfut's solution for these people to watch the games.

What, no pics?

The Scottish must be mad at the English?
In one incident a seven-year-old boy was punched in the head while he played football with his father in Edinburgh. In another a disabled man was dragged from his car, which was flying an England flag, in Aberdeen and given a black eye.

Bombs over Vegas

In the '50's the U.S. Government detonated atomic bombs in the Nevada desert on a regular basis. Most of the people in this area still won't drink the water:
For more than a decade, mushroom clouds often rose toward the sky. Winds routinely carried radioactive fallout to communities in Utah, Nevada, and northern Arizona. Meanwhile, news media dutifully conveyed U.S. Atomic Energy Commission announcements to downwind residents: "There is no danger."

Chinese becoming more Competitive

If you're not cheating, you're not trying hard enough:
Using microscopic earphones and wireless devices, Chinese students upped the ante in the high-tech battle to counter cheating during university entrance exams this month, putting some in hospital as a result.

More fun with monkeys

Monkeys are funny

The pictures are graphic so don't click the link if you are eating:
This powerful maternal instinct in non-human Primates is evidently well-documented. I witnessed an example on a recent visit to South Africa's Kruger National Park. In this case it was a Chacma baboon carrying the remains of a dead infant on its back, refusing to part with its baby in spite of the advanced state of decomposition.

Perspective Art

It's called Perspective Art and it's pretty cool!


Rabbit outruns airliner

That is one fast damn rabbit!
One of the lighter moments in the Airbus technical press briefing that took place this week in Toulouse was the release of the first images of the first rabbit to outrun an A380.

Football player's wives and girlfriends

Be careful not to stare at Posh Spice too long. You might turn to wood!

Fifa 2006 Body Painting

Here's a link to some funny face pics.


Here is a link to my other website with a huge collection of World Cup hotties!!! There is a ton of pics so give it a minute or two to load up.

People are stupid

I think the picture says it all...


Who is this guy?

From the "no shit" files:
"We're not shooting a lot of balls on the goal," US coach Bruce Arena said. "Other teams have taken advantage of these chances better than we have."
Well, it's kinda hard when the Italian guys are elbowing you in the face!

Norwegians enjoy killing whales

Haven't we moved past this as a society? Didn't we quit whaling in the 18oo's?
Fans of Norwegian whaling were triumphant Monday after the International Whaling Commission (IWC) approved a resolution that may finally make Norway's controversial annual whale hunt legal.
Very sad.

Battle of the Burgers

Here is a great article from Houston Metroblogging about the best burgers. Hands down, the best commercial burgers are Whataburgers!


Fan of the Match

Fifa has teamed up with Yahoo to name a Hyundai "Fan of the Match." What a brilliant idea!
The new ‘Fan of the Match’ award will celebrate the passion of colourful supporters at every FIFA World Cup game in Germany. We will then also give football fans around the world to chance to vote for the ‘Fan of the Tournament’ among the chosen winners here in the Hyundai Fan Corner.

Really cool tree

What a cool tree! Looks like a house!


Female Football Fans

I will never get tired of viewing the female fans of the World Cup.


FIFA World Cup themed soccer balls

Sort of cool. What more can you do to a ball?


World Cup update

Four quick stories about the World Cup. Fanatics in India riot after power crashes, coach resigns, some dude scalps tickets, and fans in Germany pack viewing areas.


The Great Pele'

Don't ask me what the hell Claudia Schiffer is doing there?
Brazilian soccer legend Pele holds World Cup Trophy, as German model Claudia Schiffer watches, during World Cup 2006 Opening Ceremony in Munich.

World Cup Fanatics

I have collected so many World Cup fanatic pics that I have had to form an entirely seperate weblog. This is the first group of ten. I hope I'm not the only one that finds this shit fascinating?

Here is a link to the whole damn weblog!!!

World Cup car-flag

I don't know how to describe the anticipation that must be brewing in England?
This is the best shot we’ve had at the World Cup in years and we want to do everything we can to help England on their way…

PC means problem child

Do you remember the movie with the late John Ritter called, "Problem Child?" Do you remember the little kid with the bowtie and the fiery red hair? Well, he's all grown up now and he's a roadie for a band named The Samples:

Drum Tech, Stage Set Up, Computer Wizard, Insanely Intelligent, Was twice a problem as a child, Highly evolved old soul with a love of his lady and a passion for swords. And his own written language!

His real name is Michael Oliver and apparently he's very smart. His nickname is PC and I'm sure that stanks for, well it's obvious by now isn't it?


World Cup? Fan-tastic!

Make sure to click on, "Click Here for Slideshow." It's the red bar at the bottom of the page.
Brazil are the best team in the world and they always put on on equally stunning display in the stands as well.

10 ways to freak out your date

These top ten ways to "Freak Out" a date are hilarious! I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to laugh at the Atari Joystick belt buckle.


40 Reasons Keanu Reeves does not suck

You know what? I don't hate Keanu Reeves. Here's just two of 40 reasons why:
(#8) Showing extreme foresight and good judgment (which is more than I can say for Sandra Bullock), passed on an easy $10 million payday to star in Speed 2, because he didn’t think the script was any good. And he was right. Tell me again why people think he’s stupid?

(#11) A personal quote: “I’m a meathead, man. You’ve got smart people, and you’ve got dumb people. I just happen to be dumb.” At least the man is brave enough to admit who he is.
Always keep your eye on the guy that admits he's dumb. They're usually really smart!


Football babes promote house sales

I guess everyone is looking for a way to cash in on the World Cup?
Two "football babes" pose to promote house sales at a real estate show in Wuxi, east China's Jiangsu Province June 16, 2006. An estate company, hoping to cashing in on the World Cup fever, invited the "football babes" to the show in order to attract more visitors, and hopefully, more home buyers. [Xinhua]

Why didn't somebody let me know soccer was such a great sport sooner?

U.S. Still Alive!!!

What a great fucking match that was!!! At one point in the first half a U.S. player got elbowed in the eye and needed stitches! It was great:
KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany - They lumbered from end to end, desperate to stop the blue surge of Italian players and salvage their World Cup.

And in the end, with players dropping to field in exhaustion, the United States managed a wild 1-1 tie Saturday night that gave the Americans their first-ever World Cup point in Europe and a chance to advance to the tournament's second round.

They'll need a win and some help, but the Americans are still players on the World Cup stage. Even if they needed an own-goal to tie the Italians.
USA, USA, USA!!!!! Okay, okay, the Italian guy accidentally kicked the ball in for us but it would have went in anyway!!! Go team!


Before Prohibition

What a beautiful world it must have been when highly addictive drugs like cocaine, heroin, and benzadrine were freely marketed and sold to the public. Check out the Pan Am flight menu on the bottom where it is offered for free along with the Kleenex.

Cristiano Ronaldo Tricks

What a great footballer! He plays like I would play if I ever played soccer...

Here to Miami

I just drove almost 2,000 miles from Chicago to Las Vegas and it almost killed me! These two guys are going to ride jet-skis almost 13,000 miles from Alaska to Miami.
The adventure, if successful, would set a world record for distance traveled on a personal watercraft. Marais and du Plessis, both from Pretoria, South Africa, say they'll follow the west coast of North America south to the Panama Canal before crossing to the Atlantic Ocean and heading up to Miami.
It's probably going to be a beautiful journey, but I'd rather fly...


USB Teddy Bear

Sometimes a good idea is pretty cool...


Rollin' with Bob Saget

I don't know if this new Jamie Kennedy show is a reality show or if they are acting, but I watched it the other day and it was so funny I thought I was going to die laughing!!! Here is a clip of the Bob Saget rap:

911 Controlled Explosions

I don't know what happened on 9/11 but I know that buildings don't fall down because of a fire or plane crash. Here is another video claiming that it is definite proof that controlled explosions took down the Twin Towers.


Soduku toilet paper

Why read the newspaper during your washroom visit, when you can challenge your brain with Sudoku. As the site puts it, “if you make a mistake no-one need know, you can just flush it away.”
