The Internet is rising up in protest on February 11th

Well, this year is ending lousy

While working to install the new laundry center upstairs, my fahter was inconvenienced by my laundry in the downstairs dryer. My mother, and my sister Kimberly are in the living room with my other sister Pamela, who is playing on the Wii. Because my bills from Dell and Sears have arrived, I am soon going to the Mainstreet Credit Union.

After going to Price Chopper, which had no parking, Walmart Neighborhood Market, which had no bread at least that I could find, and Hy-Vee, Inc., I think that I have everything for the party tonight at the Roving Imp !

Puddles under my eyes have aggravated my sinuses. Everyone is okay, and the cars have no visible damage. I just do not like the possibility of a claim being filed against my insurance. For now, regroup, take a nap, and cry for a while.

my little pony, friendship is magic, brony - Daft Pony

Electronic dance music, especially by Daft Punk, soothes me.

MBH - my brain hurts 009

At least two different interfaces appear on my Motorola Droid 2 for posting to my Facebook profile.
Top 10 Android Apps For Bloggers | Money Dummy Blog
“A few weeks ago I got a new cell, a Droid X, this is the best phone I have ever had. Every day I find new ways that this cell let’s me do things.”
Back on my Dell, I once again have the option for ‘No Thumbnail’.
Logo Redesigns of 2010 – The Good and Not-So-Good Ones! | LogoBlog - Top Logo Design Company Review
“There have been numerous logo redesigns in 2010, some were good, some not-so-good, while some had its share of controversial moments. These include BP logo redesign, Gap logo redesign, MySpace logo redesign and many more...”
One of these logos is actually political. Whitney Beiler, you might observe that I forgot to retweet the initial source.
Hypothesis, Model, Theory & Law
“Information on formulating a scientific hypothesis. Here you will also find discussions of models, theories, and laws, as well as the differences between them.”
Sorry, 98.1 KUDL, but I will not be one to ‘crunk it up’ with you.
This behavior is very uncharacteristic of you. Is this a cry for help?
The end of Pimp My Ride forces Xzibit to file for bankruptcy
“Read this car news article from Thursday, December 30, 2010. The well-known rapper and host of MTV’s Pimp My Ride is a hair’s breadth away from filing for bankruptcy.”
Lauren Wants To Know a good question, and Chevrolet is offering no payments for the first 120 days, yet I would still not be able to afford that Chevy Cruze. I remain so very sorry, Superior Chevrolet.
Stop the Internet Blacklist
“A group of powerful Senators -- Republicans and Democrats alike -- have signed onto a bill that would vastly expand the government’s power to censor the Internet.”
These people do not know about what they are speaking, yet neither do I.
10 Reasons Why Your Blog Gets No Traffic
“Blogging can be fun if you are passionate about your subject but it can be frustrating if the analytics show that you have no traffic to your blog or website. That means that no-one is reading your insights and is appreciating your writing. It is a little lonely. It is like writing a book and it is.”
Facebook Fakes Become Misdemeanors Starting 2011
“Starting this Saturday, pretending to be someone else on Facebook becomes a misdemeanor crime in California.”
Tonight at the Roving Imp Theater, like your girlfriend, I might be doing an impression of Schwarzenegger.
Every Damn Week Another Movie:
The Star Wars Holiday Special
“For the Christmas season, I sat down and watched the most terrible and bizarre holiday program ever thrown up on the screen. Carrie Fisher sings! Bea Arthur sings! A stormtrooper falls off a balcony! It’s all here on The Star Wars Holiday Special.”
In the act of deleting a sponsored station, I accidentally deleted my favorite station from my Pandora, so I deleted them all, and I created a new Sharam radio! MBH - my brain hurts, 009.

What do you know 011

The issues that I had with PayPal were due to an increase in credit. I should exercise some caution, or at least this eBay coupon, like your girlfriend.
Hexavalent Chromium In Your Drinking Water? « News and Views
The Late Show with David Letterman once parodied this Julia Roberts and her receiving an Oscar® for Erin Brockovich.
‘Erin Brockovich’ Town Shows No Cancer Cluster
“Hinkley, California, the town made famous in the Oscar-winning Julia Roberts movie Erin Brockovich, does not show any evidence of an increased rate.”
Surprisingly, Julia Roberts also does not show any evidence, yet I surprisingly cannot find that specific parody.
Beauty of the Web
“As amazing as the web is, its potential is immeasurably greater. Internet Explorer 9 was designed to let that potential shine through.”
Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and Northern Ireland would also cheer for eBay coupons!
The Art of Oban Star-Racers (English Edition)
“Illustrated with scores of previously unpublished production and pre-production artworks, this beautiful art-book includes both an exclusive presentation of the whole Oban universe, character by character, and a detailed account of the production of this unique franco-japanese collaboration. A must have for all Oban-fans as well as for all those interested in the production of Japanese anime.”
Electronic dance music might actually bother my sister Pamela in the same way that some of her musical selections actually do bother me.
“Democracy vs Republic”
We must acknowledge these and other differences when we go for groceries at either the Price Chopper or the Sam’s Club.

Stale zaniness 003

I cannot understand the appeal Most Shocking on truTV has for my mother, but I do understand why my father would like for me to clear my bins and boxes from the path to the furnace.
Guess what I am doing this afternoon?
My life is not yet like that.
Dj Hixxy & Styles ft. Lou Lou - ‘Happiness’
I first went to the Mainstreet Credit Union, and then I went to the Post Office to mail some documents for my father and a bill for myself. I had some Taco Bell, unlike your girlfriend. Before chili for supper, I had success in emptying one bin.

At the home of Denton, I later had fun playing on the Wii.

An offer that I cannot refuse 005

Top Gear via the YouTube is awesome!
Video: Top Gear Three Wise Men Christmas Special in its entirety - Autoblog
“Tags: bbc, james may, jeremy clarkson, richard hammond, three wise men, top gear, top gear christmas special, top gear three wise men christmas special”
Although not an endorsement, James May was on a New York broadcast for this system.
A delightful concept that … inspires a daily practice.
“Non‐religious and non‐spiritual, the 48 plus concept is a healthful obsession that is safe, direct, and motivates continuity. A consistent flow of simple stretches targets major muscles, glands, organs for a wholesome stretch and body revival.”
Dr Pepper caused me to belch and spew pieces of crackers on to my Dell, yet fortunately none were wet pieces, like your girlfriend.
S60 News and Awards | Tools | Volvo S60 | Volvo Models |
“AUTOMOBILE Magazine All-Star Award Each year, the editorial staff of AUTOMOBILE Magazine choose only ten vehicles for their annual All-Star award. Not surprisingly, the All-New Volvo S60 is one of the recipients of this prestigious award.”

“Santa Fe Body, Inc has been serving your automotive body and collision repair needs for over 45 years. If you’ve been in an auto accident.”

Taco Bell’s $5 Buck Box
“It’s game time at Taco Bell. The Touchdown $5 Buck Box is ready to tackle the biggest appetites. Hunger won’t know what hit it!”

At the Circle K, I bought fuel, and my Chevy Cavalier posted 27.216 miles per gallon or 8.861 liters per 100 kilometers.

Where was this 008

Two corrections now need to be made: David Rushing, the last corner on the Top Gear test track is named after Michael Gambon, and Chez Wilson Massey, when the SureWest bill has not even arrived, I do not even know why I am writing cheques now.
Printing Ultra-Thin Circuits Into Banknotes Could Give Electronic Security to Paper Currency | Popul...
“Earlier this month, it came to light that the new high-tech U.S. $100 bill was so difficult to counterfeit that even the U.S. mint couldn’t properly master the production process, causing printing problems that eventually led the Treasury Department to quarantine $110 billion in new currency.”
Well, this contest is lost; I have neither an idea nor a video camera.

“Shoot A Better Way video and you could be on your way to winning $10,000 for the best 48 hours of your life.”
While I appreciate the efforts of the Ford Motor Company, I also prefer Holden Special Vehicles.

Christmas, 2010

With this Dr Pepper, Nintendo Wii controller, and Reese’s Big Cup, my sister Pamela knows how to shop for me.
Click Here to Meet New REESE’S Minis
“Although the adorable Baby Peanut Butter Cups only weigh 3.5 grams, they’re a total handful.”
My father and mother bought me some sport casual socks from Adidas at the JCPenney Outlet store.
“I hope you all have a wonderful day fill with family and friends. From my family to yours.
Merry Christmas from the Bauer family.”
Starring Bing Crosby, we watched the musical White Christmas, which I bought for Kim. Later we will be fortunately watching Despicable Me, so I can again join them.
“Enjoy today enjoy tonight
hope all of your next year is fruitful and bright!”
Involved in another household project, my father is removing a cabinet from the upstairs bathroom, installing pipe fittings and receptacles in the upstairs bathroom, and installing these fittings to the pipes in the laundry room below.
The SharkBite® Connection System | Cash Acme
“Our SharkBite push-fit fittings are the fastest, easiest way to join copper, CTS CPVC and PEX pipe in any combination. With no soldering, clamps, unions or glue.”
To the Founders of the Feast, my thanks.

Christmas Eve, 2010

Sorry, father, I am selfish and forgetful. Thank you for purchasing the new winter coat for me at the Burlington Coat Factory last Thursday!
“Burlington Coat Factory presents! Save on coats, mens, womens, kids clothing, baby bedding cribs, accessories, linens, rugs, home fashions and MORE! We’re More Than Great Coats!”
A day off work begins my family together; we are all spending the day alone in our respective rooms. ;-)
A First Person Shooter Video Game in Real Life
“Are video games still not really real enough for you yet? Well check out what they could possibly be in the future as a group of guys brilliantly recreate a first person shooter game in the woods.”

4G-LTE | Verizon Wireless
“It’s finally here. The technology that will change the way you see wireless. Actually, it’ll change the way you see everything. Eventually every wireless carrier will have 4G. But not all 4G networks are created equal. Verizon 4G LTE provides wireless options for a previously wired world.”
My Motorola Droid 2 is not a compatible device, and the service is not available in the City of Overland Park, Kansas.
Porsche 911 Turbo v Nissan GT-R v Audi R8 V10 | evo features
“In the course of an epic Welsh road trip, the new, more powerful and more focused 911 Turbo takes on the Audi R8 V10 and its arch nemesis, the Nissan GT-R.”
One must love the British motoring press. The family has started the VHS copy of A Muppet Christmas Carol. Also, together we watched a Top Gear episode on the BBC America.
A Christmas Carol - 2010 Christmas Special - Doctor Who - BBC AMERICA
“Learn more about ‘A Christmas Carol,’ the Doctor Who 2010 Christmas Special!”
My sister Pamela, despite disliking the Top Gear, watched regardless. Truly miracles do happen! She also gifted me a Reese’s Big Cup.

F-forget the one-horse, open sleigh ~! YEAH ~!
Chevy Camaro Snow Performance
“Gold medal performance. Winter or Summer. The vehicle featured is a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, with V6 304HP and 19'' all-season tires.”
Wild, and wildly entertaining! Certainly some wider symbolism exists because it is French, like your girlfriend.

“Here is something for all you brand freaks out there. The Logorama short film. It’s not for kids, it’s nasty, it’s cruel - but it is incredibly well made.”

Construction caused me to detour to 95th Street, where I bought some fuel at the Circle K, my Chevy Cavalier posted 27.211 miles per gallon or 8.613 liters per 100 kilometers, and I had some shrimp from the nearby Long John Silver’s.
“The sidewalk north and east of the Billington Library, adjacent to the Regnier Center and Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art at Johnson County Community College, will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 22. A crane will be working in this area to lift a new air handling unit onto the library roof.”
Twitter is becoming quite pushy: “You’re using an older version of Twitter that won’t be around for much longer.” The Onion has a way of satirizing things.
Repeal Of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Paves Way For Gay Sex Right On Battlefield, Opponents Fantasize
“WASHINGTON—As Congress prepares to allow gay individuals to serve openly in the military, those against the proposed change voiced their concerns Monday, warning the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ could soon lead to strong, strapping American soldiers engaging in mind-blowing homosexual intercourse.”
In reference to the mindset of the opponents in the article, I quote a FOX entity other than Fox News, Independence Day:
“Uh... Mr. President. That’s not entirely inaccurate.”

“What, which part?”
We should phoqueing applaud this!

Celebratory note 008

This is going to be EPIC!
Roving Imp Theater
“It’s holiday-style trivia fun with TrivProv!

John takes on three prodigal performers -
all Roving Imps that now live in different parts of the world:

Nifer Honeycutt of Chicago,

Hannah Mott of southern England,

and James Nelson of Tuebingen, Germany.

Only one will survive to the end
to compete against John one-on-one!”
And this will continue to be an EPIC:
“Biblioclast destroys another classic work of literature or cinema tonight, creating a brand new work of comedy.

Then, Deep Space Emily receives alien visitors, and the crew doesn’t quite know what to think.”
As they say on the Initial D, “Don’t miss it!”

Celebratory note 007

Born yesterday, my sister would agree.
Top 10: Alpha Females
“Is Salma Hayek the woman who best embodies ambition and beauty?”
Sad news for Alpha and Omega indeed.
Psychedelic Images to Aid Study of Wolves with Mange
“While most of us are used to seeing wolves in grey and black, new images from Yellowstone National Park show them in a range of psychedelic colors. This is not a new species of wolf, but part of a study to research disease in the park’s grey wolf population.”
Oh, Canada! My sister’s birthday is actually today!
Happy birthday, Pamela!
Eclipse Gum. Incredibly Fresh Breath.
“Unlock secret footage from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Codes from specially marked 12 ct packs and 60 ct BigePaks of Eclipse gum reveal the secrets within.”
As Zach Colt-McMahon and John Robison already know, until I search Google, I do not become aware of Cake music lyrics.
Short Skirt/Long Jacket by Cake
“I want a girl . With a mind like a diamond.
I want a girl . Who knows what’s best. .
I want a girl . With shoes that cut.
And eyes that burn . Like cigarettes. .
I want a girl . With the right allocations.
Who’s fast and thorough. And sharp as a tack. .
She’s playing with her jewelry. She’s putting. . ”
Happiness is when the music fades just as I am parking my Chevy Cavalier. Ahem, quite a celebratory note, eh, 007?

Where was this 007

Yes, unbelievably, I have been out of the loop on the Los Angeles Auto Show.
2012 Range Rover Evoque Five-Door | Los Angeles Auto Show
“Making its world debut in Los Angeles, the new 2012 Range Rover Evoque five-door puts a more practical spin on the three-door 2012 Evoque Coupe that officially debuted in Paris.”
Much time has passed since I last looked at Autoblog, but fortunately they are now on the Facebook. The question is not so much where was this, but where was I.
Memory Sandwiches
“That’s right: Improve your memory, one sandwich at a time. We have 6 recipes to get you started. Hungry?”
Mm, yes, food for thought, and I also remember this make of motorcycle in Yes Man, a line from which was the title of my last post.
Ducati murders out the Diavel in Diamond Black
“It doesn’t get much hotter than the Ducati Diavel, the long-anticipated Italian.”
I also remember this brand from Tron, with music by Daft Punk.
TRON | The Official Site | Disney
“Welcome to the official site of TRON! News, information, videos, and more about the movies, console and online games, and products are coming soon! Get on the grid when the TRON: Legacy movie releases in 3D in theaters December 17, 2010!”
This was pretty awesome on the Top Gear on the BBC America.
Epic Big Rig Drifting!
“Pro Racer and Stunt Driver Mike Ryan shows Hot Rod Magazine his incredible Freightliner race truck. Mike is the 9 time class champion with this rig at the famous Pikes Peak Hill Climb. In this video he shows us that with enough skill and brute force, almost anything can drift.”
Of course, I cannot really ‘listen’ to that video at work, but I have been reminded of a book for which to look on
The Stig’s Book – Ben Collins Autobiography
“So the identity of The Stig has been confirmed by Ben Collins, the man who played the role for the past seven years, you happy now?!.”
Ben Collins won his lawsuit, and the title is available as an e-book or back order at BORDERS BOOKS & MUSIC. Top Gear has many controversies.
Limbaugh: Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Now Show And Tell
“Rush Limbaugh on Nina Totenberg and the repeal of don’t ask, don’t tell.”
For some, Limbaugh is a religion.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) Responds to HRC Petition “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued the following statement through a spokesman following the delivery of a petition by the Human Rights Campaign.”
Perhaps I poorly chose that transition, and to half-rhyme was not my intention.
GM Turns Booms From Gulf Oil Spill Into Chevy Volt Parts
“GM has recycled tons of plastic that was used to clean up last summer’s massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, using it to build parts for Chevy Volt cars.”

Google Launches Site for Teaching Tech to Your Parents
“The folks over at Google have launched, a ‘tech support care package’ that’s meant to help kids teach parents about computer basics.”
My father should find that site to be useful. Which might end our co-dependent relationship, I hesitate to show it to my mother.

“See which top 5 programs are finding new uses for old technologies in this article by Find what technologies are making a come back in new useful ways.”
20 geeky holiday decorations - Holy Kaw!

Thank you again, Guy Kawasaki. Where was this, 007?

General, don’t listen to just any old phoque.

General, don’t listen to just any old phoque.
Futurity.orgUnmanned drones track Arctic seals
“Research news from leading universities”
An episode of Family Guy, “Quagmire’s Dad” had this French word in the first scene; kitto I will earnestly use the word similarly throughout this post, like your girlfriend would conjugate queue.
Seel (Pokémon) - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia
“The horn on Seel’s head is exceptionally hard, and its made of toughened bone. Seel has a tan-colored muzzle with a small black nose, small tusks, round eyes and a tongue that is often seen outside of Seel’s mouth. It lives in the frigid waters of the arctic, surviving because of its thick blubber.”
what has phoqueing happened to my wall?!”
Smithsonian Christmas-Season Exhibit Features Ant-Covered Jesus, Naked Brothers Kissing, Genitalia,...
“A crucifix in the video ‘A Fire in My Belly,’ part of the ‘Hide/Seek’ exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. The image shows Christ on the cross with ants crawling over his body and face. ( Starr)”
So maybe we should just phoqueing seel our eyes?
Art Rant: The Washington Post Rails Against ‘Small-Minded Intolerance’ of Cantor, Boehner | NewsBusters...
“It’s quite clear then, that the meaning is: Jesus is being trashed and is rotting because of the Christians who somehow refuses to treat the victims of AIDS, and their anti-gay gospel is somehow ‘abrogating’ the true Christian religion. How this is supposed to be less offensive to Christians is more than a bit puzzling -- especially considering all the Christian health care workers who’ve cared for AIDS patients over the last 25 years.”
Curmudgeon Central might be more phoqueing annoying than “Sweet E-‘moat’-tion” by Aerosmith.
Gay Bashing at the Smithsonian
“It still seems an unwritten rule in establishment Washington that homophobia is at most a misdemeanor.”
Even a week later, that label phoqueing ticks me off. In order to feel phoqueing superior, how many phoqueing labels does the phoqueing Left need to phoqueing create against folks with different sensitivities than them? The time was to take action:

Bring the beat back 001

Japan Heals Paralyzed Monkeys Using Non-Embryonic Human Stem Cells
“In the debate over stem cell research, it’s not just about what you can do, it’s how you can do it. Scientists in Japan recently announced that.”
Depending on the political leaning of Starlit, this practice is suddenly less objectionable.
Interview: Starlit’s Simara Rose « earsucker
“I recently had the chance to ask Starlit’s frontwoman, Simara Rose, a few questions. She was more than happy to oblige. She has such a positive message, as posted on her myspace page, as well as powerful lyrics and rocking riffs.”
To which the answer can only be found in a museum of archaeology, the image on her site slightly mentions, “Urs.”
Wonderful Gallery of Science: ArchaeopteryxGEARFUSE
Living some 150 million years ago, Archaeopteryx sported feathers and a saurine skeleton. Standing on the brink between dinosaurs and birds, Archaeopteryx has long represented the concept of transitional species so intuitively important in the acceptance of Darwin’s theory of natural selection.”
OK OK OK, I suppose that would be a museum of paleontology; unless the skeleton is supine, like your girlfriend was with me last night. OH! Thank you for that word supine, Justin.

Volkswagen and Gilt Groupe celebrate the all-new 2011 Jetta.
“This week only, Volkswagen and Gilt Groupe are celebrating the all-new 2011 Jetta. Three days for three special Jetta models at a very special price. Get ready for this groundbreaking event.”
I concede, that was the second worst pun that I have ever made, and Asian Martin says:
“A Jetta for $5,995? I think the thing cost $5,995 to build...”
I suppose that would be asking too much of this relationship though .

An offer that I cannot refuse 003

My mother just inspired another blog entry, a positive blog entry. So thus began a back and forth between Sheri Strykowski and myself:
“@chris_m_hurt TY Chris. Hope you are staying out of trouble today

@writer_sheri Yes, my mother is helping me sort through some of my bins.

“@chris_m_hurt that sounds like you’re 9 years, old, Chris ahah”
@writer_sheri I never claimed to be any more mature, and some things about me never will change.

“@chris_m_hurt & that, Christopher is why i like u ahah”
I do not act by age. Rarely, like your girlfriend, am I ever any more mature than a nine-year-old. I have updated my usually shallow and pedantic blog!

An offer that I cannot refuse 002

The plight of small pickup trucks continues. Why Chevrolet, the Ford, GMC, or Ram cannot make a decent product in this segment is beyond my explanation.
US-South Korea Trade Agreement Aims To Eliminate Chicken Tax on Trucks - News
“The U.S. and South Korea have reached a deal on a permanent free trade agreement between the two countries that could see Korean-built pickup trucks imported into the U.S. without being subject to a 25 percent tax levied on most foreign-made pickups.”
Well, maybe in other countries, but that doesn’t fly in Anaheim.

MBH - my brain hurts 007

There is a lot of ice cream leftover from the ATS meeting yesterday. It is in the freezer section of the fridge. But there are no bowls. Lame, like your girlfriend, let’s roll for awareness.
Most Americans Say They’re Worse Off Under Obama, Poll Shows
“More than 50 percent of Americans say they are worse off now than they were two years ago when President Barack Obama took office, and two-thirds believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, a Bloomberg National Poll shows.”
Christopher Hurt wonders, “Where are the priorities of this ‘president’? How about you create some jobs? Perhaps reduce the debt? Idiot is spelled O-B-A-M-A!”
I’m trying to find 6 people in the next half-hour who want to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ I just added my name to the growing list of Americans in support of repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’”
Let us see, Family Guy, what is in the Ann Coulter fridge today.
Don't Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Call Our Troops Homophobes
“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Call Our Troops Homophobes - Ann Coulter: The Pentagon’s poll on ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is beyond
The time is now Duck Season, especially with behavior like this:
House Democrats defy Obama on tax cut bill
“(CNN) -- Defying President Obama, House Democrats voted Thursday not to bring up the tax package that he negotiated with Republicans in its current form. "This message today is very simple: That in the form that it was negotiated, it is not acceptable to the House Democratic caucus’.”
Perhaps in other countries, but that doesn’t fly in Anaheim. Much like your girlfriend, I could also use a dance break: Chinese cosplay!
Humans dress like pandas to fools cubs - Holy Kaw!
“Coolest jobs in the world: ice cream taste tester, Muppeteer, alpaca farmer. Add another occupation to the list—panda impersonator.”

Postscript to Experiment 008

As briefly chronicled yesterday on this blog, President Obama was on MythBusters. Lame.

OK OK OK, so the episode of MythBusters was not fully lame, but asking them to again explore a myth, which they had already done three times, is lame.

Last night, host James Hyneman noted:
  • The mirrors failed to achieve the temperature needed to ignite the sail.
  • The show is not about replicating results, but experimentation.
  • The true genius of Archimedes might have been
    the blinding effects of the mirrors.
I understand the goal of the president to excite the youth of the nation about science; however, just doubling the number of participants did not change the result. In the broader sense, nothing this president has done has proven anything or changed anything for the better, although I might have to think about that.

An offer that I cannot refuse 001

A Buddhist friend, who oddly enough is not Nifer, once told Tom Kessler, “Instant karma does not exist. Karma is cumulative.” Even though this friend is inexplicably no longer my friend on the Facebook, I still trust his words.

My television is tuned to the Discovery Channel and MythBusters, but might not be in a half hour.
Twitter / Scott VonSchilling: Amazon lists F**k You as ...
“Amazon lists ‘F**k You’ as the #1 song of 2010. I fully support this.
Why hadn’t somebody told this president that they already did the Archimedes-mirror myth three times? Fortunately a new season of Naruto Shippuden begins next on Disney XD!

How ignorant of me, the purpose of science is
to investigate old results with new ideas.

Yes, I just admitted ignorance.

An offer that I cannot refuse 000

A blue Ford Fiesta hatchback passed me this morning, and a red Ferrari 430 went north on Quivira Road.
Ferrari F430 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“The Ferrari F430 is a sports car that was produced by the Italian automaker Ferrari from 2004 to 2009, as a successor to the 360. It debuted at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. Its replacement, the Ferrari 458 Italia, was unveiled on 28 July 2009 and is on sale now.”
For our Holiday Luncheon on Friday, I just promised to bring a case of Nestlé Pure Life water. In my GMX Mail, Chevrolet just sent me an Exclusive $50 Cruze test-drive offer, which I cannot refuse. If I test-drive a Chevy Cruze, then I will receive a fifty-dollar gift card to Target.

Robinson: Obama Seems Ready To ‘Own’ Tax Cut Decision
“Eugene Robinson says the president does get judged about whether the recovery happened and if people feel it or not. However, after the tax cuts, Robinson reveals he is not sure if President Obama will get ‘credit’ for the recovery. Robinson says Obama seems ready to own the compromise”
Jalopnik, please do not assume that I did not consider any of these for my character for my profile picture.
