Amazing. I don’t think I ever want to live in that area. Don’t forget your flood insurance!
Tiffany’s claims 3/4 of Tiffany’s merchandise that it purchased on eBay was fake. I can hear eBay stock sinking.
“The Mayor of Monument was arrested on several charges, including DUII, on Saturday after crashing his pickup head-on into an oncoming car and then fleeing the scene.” The mug shot is especially awesome.
What a crackhead. Going to jail for $20. That would totally suck.
The alternative fuel debate for cars these days mostly surrounds fuel cells. Well, apparently, other countries such as Brazil are already using alternative fuels. Ethanol produced from sugar cane. No more reliance on Middle East Oil. I had no idea. Very interesting indeed.
Well, the good news is, it’s free. The bad news is you need an antenna and channel selection is limited. If you don’t know already, your TV may be able to accept Over The Air (OTA) Digital Broadcasting. This is specially awesome for those of you who have HD TVs but don’t get any HD programming. Go to THIS website and input your zipcode. It will give you a list of all channels available in your area, how far the antennas are from your location, and even show you which way to orient your antenna to get the best picture. Not too bad.
If you haven’t seen anything like this, it’s pretty cool. Especially if you’re trying to see about using someone else’s bandwidth.

Sucks to be this guy. Good thing the museum is being nice. Note to self….be careful around priceless works of art in a museum.
“A museum visitor shattered three Qing dynasty Chinese vases when he tripped on his shoelace, stumbled down a stairway and brought the vases crashing to the floor, officials said Monday.”
So I have this coworker of mine. He’s a pretty interesting fellow. He seems to have this need to scratch himself in the crotchial region at all times. At least one of his hands is in his pocket fidgeting around. He’s not playing with himself. He’s just scratching. Now, either he’s got a rash that won’t go away (STD) or he needs some better hygiene. I want him to stop but I don’t know how to make him stop. I just try and avoid him these days. Does anyone else have a coworker like this? I just want to tell him in front of everyone else “STOP DOING THAT!” And the worst part is, there is a small possibility that I may have to use the same keyboard he uses at times. Ugh… Good thing I clean every keyboard I come in contact with.
This is one of those things where you say, How come I didn’t think of that.

If you don’t know how to use Bittorrent and would like to know, check out this website.
This makes me feel much better at forgetting things. I heard Einstein was absent minded also.
There’s been a lot of press lately about Bill Gates being a great philanthropist. Especially since his cover on a December issue of Time magazine. I don’t deny that Gates’ billions of dollars towards world health is a great cause. However, I read somewhere recently that as a percentage of Mr Gates’ net worth, Bill has donated less than Gordon Moore. Mr Moore may not be able to donate as much as Mr Gates, but I think that it tells alot about a person when they donate 90% of their money vs 20%. (I made those numbers up) I’ll try to track down some concrete numbers soon.
“Nintendo President Satoru Iwata today announced Nintendo DS Lite, a slimmer version of the best-selling Nintendo DS™. Also featuring brighter screens, Nintendo DS Lite will launch in Japan in March. Nintendo DS Lite will be less than two-thirds the size of the original Nintendo DS and more than 20 percent lighter.

Garret Bushong, a 3rd string TE apologizes to school about a DUI in school newspaper. And by apologize, I mean say he owns the school and challenges anyone who thinks differently to a fight.
According to Access Hollywood, the rumors of a Friends revival are false. I kind of had a feeling it was bogus, but I had to hope.
