Not The Best And Brightest..

Everyone has a bad day, but the "leader" that drove into this, is probably they guy on the roof who can't swim. Yeah, I see a demotion in your future.

HIV Leaves The Wankers Wanting


Not a real shocker that a Porn Star turned up HIV Positive, what to do?? Shut down the whole industry..

Can porn stars file for unemployment? Wonder what the guys check off when they apply? "Hospitality", "Entertainment", "Drilling", "Pipe Fitter" or "Painter"? Thinking Peter North on that last one..

Make up your own jokes for female Porn Stars..

Windsor Has A Buzz

Yes, the City of Windsor in the Provice of Ontario Canada is truely buzzing [insert pot joke here]!

It's obviously the Aliens tunneling up from under the Earth to try to enslave us all (those they don't kill), but eventually they die from natural bacteria in our air, that didn't seem to bother them before now.

Or it's a resonating sound from a factory. Look for spinning equipment...


Oh, if you don't get Audio, right click the video, select About HTML5 and go to the "Opt Out of HTML5 pilot. Some stupid idea Google is testing, but has obviously NOT TESTED!

Hey! Bird Flu Is Back

It's been about a year since the "press" has had a chance to panic the general populace, so lets do this right; We are all going to DIE!!!


Too Many Crazy People In Government...

Alan Krueger and Michele Bachman are crazy..

Interesting Leaked Karl Rove Email


If it's real, its no shock that Rove would use tactics like this.  Hmm, what if we just promote people voting their heart and mind?  Novel idea, I know...

He is trying to brainwash people, and I suppose some soak it up like a sponge.  You would be the stupid people that watch Fox News all day.

Who's Cutting NASA And NOAA's Satellite Budgets?

Republicans of course. Hal Rodgers, Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, is leading the charge on cutting our ability to forcast solar and terrestrial storms.


Another story here; http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/08/27/1011096/-Cutting-NOAA-funding-will-affect-future-Forcasting-abilities

I guess the funniest thing is republicans force the cuts, and then the right wing media turn around and blame Obama.  You guys are funny..

NOW Gadaaffi Wants To Negotiate??

Wait, NOW Gadaffi wants to negotiate??


I think the only thing left to "negotiate" is does he wear cuffs and a hood on the flight to the Hague, or just the cuffs.

Irene Wraps Up

The last band of Irene passes over central Maryland, heads North

Um, it wasn't too bad here.  Some areas have lost power, but we only had some brown-outs.  A few trees down, lots of leaves in street (I need to check the gutters).  All in all, not a major event here.

Arab League

Funny, Aljazeera runs the story about "recognizing the Libyan NTC, but NOTHING about Syria's claims of being over-run by terrorists (which they aren't). Such a funny biased news organization... One of their reporters tweeted that the Arab League would push for Syrian Presidential elections (won't happen), withdrawal of troops (won't happen) and a "unity government" (won't happen).


Oh, not to totally bash their incompetence, they did hoist the new Libyan flag at the meeting.  Good job!!  Thank the CIA and US Navy for making it possible.

A Beautiful Fucked Up Short

Musharraf's Assets Frozen

For being part of a "broad conspiracy" to have Benazir Bhutto killed.  That's a shocker??


Oli Rig

I am not sure what this is all about, but I love the animation style.

Harrys, Extreme Slow Motion And Water..

Beautiful stuff...

Eness - Mobius

I like the benign nature of the CGI..and the music.

When Soyuz Goes Wrong

Several different aspects of the disaster. It was not the failed launch to the ISS today. By the way, the ISS is fine without the supply delivery that failed today.

Firefighters Have No Fear..

Dust Devil Tornado

It's very pretty, the way it sucks up the Farmer's seedling protective coverings, into a Ballet!

Howl = I Love This

I love the animation and artwork. Very well done ladies.

Just needs an ending.

Copia A

Well done Trexel Animation

Auto Museum In Glasgow

Um...those are not models on the wall, real cars...how cool is that!?


Off to Scotland anyone??


If you have read the Act, it will basically allow the US to block sites, it deems to be infringing copyrights.

I seriously (if you are in the US), contact your representatives and plead that they oppose censorship on the Internet.

The good thing though, there are 8 ways to get around it; http://www.zeropaid.com/news/95013/8-technical-methods-that-make-the-protect-ip-act-useless/  I recommend the Host File change...

DynCorp International Blows Afghan Police Training

DynCorp After Training Police in EOD (botched).


Their Board of Directors includes John Tilelli; former Vice Chief of Staff of the US Army. Shocker! A former BAE President is on the Board too.

One billion wasted, and the company continues to pick up government contracts....

Impressive stop motion.

Libyan Rebels Close In

Just 20KM from Tripoli. Some reports of NATO bombing everything in their way now. Go GO GO...get it over with. I can't wait to see the reception they get in the city!

Putin's Army

The kind with boobs..

I assume they are saying they like Mevedev, or Putin. I don't really care. Judging from all the "dislikes" on the video though, Putin should consider a new tact?

Aphex Twin

I actually like the Alarm Will Sound version better.

Dinner Party Download

Very funny..

Shell Has A Spill Problem..


I do like the saying "never had a man-made disaster from solar or wind".

UN Mad At Shell Oil

Maybe a chunk of those profits this quarter will go to clean up your mess in Nigeria????

RTHR = ?

So is this stupid girly playtime, or the future?

Cute, but it makes me wonder.  I had all that shit out of my system at 16.  But I am still totally silly, so maybe I judge roughly.

Cathay Pacific

They know how to Party, and this is funny, even if I don't understand a word they are saying..

Israel Keeps Pushing It..

Is it just me, or do other people think the whole "two state solution" thing will be easier to sort out, if Israel stops building their homes on Palestinian occupied land? Just a thought, you fucking pretencious assholes...

Cry Baby

I am not a fan of the song, but my Sister-in-Law's daughter is the only prominent black female dancer in the video. So I gotta throw down..

"Companies Are People"

Ok, Mitt, I get your gist. But am I the only one to notice the cameras peaking out from the backdrop photographing the people in the crowd? Very fucking creepy Republican shit.. maybe it's a Mormon thing?

Oh, and if Corporations are "people", then let CEOs get sued for bankrupting a company, not the workers who lose everything in the process.

Detroit = Music

Not "cars". Most of those parts are from Mexico..

Ok Go Does Star Wars 3D

Get your red-blues..

Cable/Satellite Subscriptions Decline Sharply

I hope this is happening in Europe too?

Yes, lets move the content to the internet!! We need to kill NetFlix though, they are choking the system..

747's Fly In Formation

Probably a first and last..

Cool, thanks NASA!

I Love Team Unicorn

China Has An Aircraft Carrier

It's actually an old Russian carrier, the Varyag. You would think China would just design their own? Oh right, the only way they develop technology is to steal it, or buy it. So they had to buy this..

Darkest Hour

Hmm, invisible alien energy monsters.

I would find a piece of metal that was well grounded, hook a wire to it and harpoon the monster with the other end. It shoulf kill it...

That's a Rip-Off (Italy)

Glad to see Italy reads my blog, and totally stole the idea I posted HERE a few years back; Cleaning up the trash in orbit around the earth...

Hey Marco Castronuovo, did you read my story "Dusters"? Posted to the top right? Thief..

Frozen Wave

I don't usually get into skateboard videos, but this was cute and well made.  Love the music..

The Global Economy

It amazes me that no one seems to have a clue as to why the economy is falling apart? We have seen this before, back in the 1930s.

Too much wealth was accumulated by the top 5-10% of earners, so there was no more money left in the rest of the population. Everything fell apart with a massive depression, and then recession after that. Duh, it's exactly what we are seeing now.

So what did the world's governments do back in the 1930s? They raised taxes on the rich, to the tune of 90% of income for some. I don't propose anything so draconian now. We wouldn't want their private tennis courts to go un-striped.

Just a bit more, like 5-10%. The middle class can afford a bit more too (the ones that have jobs). What people don't seem to get, is balancing the budget does NOTHING to pay down the debt. We need a surplus, not balance. "Revenue Neutral" policies guarantee complete failure.

London Riots

Not about protest, just beating little kids and theft. The UK needs to escalate this matter.

Woouf Bean-Bag Chairs

US Demand Slows, What Will Corp. America Do?

(One of many shuttered Ohio factories)

Look to overseas markets, of course:

Yes, now that "corporate America" has abandoned its workers and moved production to Asia, Canada and Mexico; They have lost faith in the American consumer.  You know the "consumers" that don't have jobs anymore, because corporate America did what they did. 

Are you surprised, CEOs?  If you want an American Market, bring the jobs back home.  It will hit your bottom line a bit, but think of the cost difference when selling a washer/car/anyting in America, vice Asia or Columbia.  Wake up.

Bahrain Recalls Syrian Ambassador?

Wait, people think this is a condemnation?  It's the pot calling the pot black.  Bahrain killed their own people, torched them alive.  Shot them dead in the streets (genocide). Do they (and the US) think this gives them any credibility?  Move the 5th fleet Obama!

Markeplace Money - NPR

Listening to NPR and the "show" had some advice "don't look at your 401K".  Fucking insanity, get your money out and into a CD at a LOCAL BANK!

London Riots 2011

Just wanted to let my UK friends know that the rest of the world looks at you and wonders; Where is the great British civility?  Your kids are doing this for fun?  They have no stake in what started this in Tottenham.

A damn shame that a bunch of daft punks can tear apart a big chunk of a town like that.  It wouldn't happen in the US for sure.  We'd get out baseball bats and pound the lizards into the ground.

S&P Must Be Racist

Just like the rest of the Republican/tea Party.

Um, we just CUT THE DEFICIT. For the first time since 1999, we CUT THE DEFICIT. And now, when we have a black President, you lower our credit rating??????

Idiots, they want so bad to have the President fail, that they are willing to drag the whole Country down in the process.

Leave Yulia Alone..

I don't think Yulia Tymoshenko is guilty of anything more than being hot...
Um, on second thought, she is as crooked as our Sarah Palin in the US.  Lock her ass up..

Juno Heads To Jupiter

This is a great mission, but it will take 5 years to even get there. One year wasted, to just meet up with Earth and get a slingslot boost out to Jupiter. If we had a heavier lift rocket, it would get there much faster.

Neat mission, it will be in a Polar orbit, which is a first. It will even collect valuable data on Earth when it flies by in a year (so look for that).

Octopus Camoflauge

Amazing video....

Toro Y Moi

They = Funny/Cute

Happy Birthday Obama!

Having the stock market crash might seem like a crappy thing to have happen on your Birthday, but I would love nothing more than Obama coming out and encouraging people to get their money (including 401Ks) out of the markets.

Put it in a CD at your local bank and let Wall Street completely fail. You will be so much safer in the long run.

Nigeria OK'd To Sue Shell For Oil Spills

Um, why do UK courts have to "OK" this? Doesn't Nigeria have courts? Did they not sign/read contracts?

5K Run From Zombies Marathon

Women missing one shoe and screaming, are encouraged to sign up.

Average Home Sizes

Apparently the UK lives like Hobbits?  My house lines up with Denmark, the bottom of the barrel by US standards.  But it suits me perfectly...


I know they will want the US to stay, that will be Iran wanting us there to keep up the financial drain... Get the HELL out!

Cuba Embaces Capitalism??

It's interesting, because that is the kind of thing a lot of people in the US are fighting against. I guess having the Government do EVERYTHING is bad, but we should admit that having it do certain things, is good.

A Beautiful Start To Ramadan

In the US anyway, a beautiful moon set..

The gates of Heaven are open to all you Muslims...

Good luck dodging bullets all over the middle east.  May Allah bring you victory in Syria and Libya. Such a nightmare/travesty/sin.

Not that I personally buy into any of that, just being "uplifting".  For those needing a lift.
