Funny. Funny like a clown. Funny ha ha.

Sunday nights at 11:45 PM on Cartoon Network. Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Must see TV.

The last episode was one of the funniest things I've seen on TV in years.
Here is Ryan's dream come true:

The Sony XA-300 provides two auxiliary audio inputs for any UniLink CD changer-controlling Sony receiver. There is also a USB port (v1.1) for direct connection to a laptop or portable MP3 player. Features a headphone output with level control for input 1, and a UniLink pass-through port so you don't lose connectivity of your CD changer. Compatible with all UniLink Sony receivers and all UniLink 6- and 10-disc CD changers (CD changer is not required for auxiliary input). Not compatible with the Sony DVX-100 DVD changer.

You need to use that in addition to a regular head unit. When you select a source on the head unit, it will see the XA-300 with inputs. It's hella ugly though to be used in a regular DIN environment.

Jury duty is over! I got dismissed because the person changed their plea at the last minute. Now I can get back to having to write five freaking papers and a speech every week.

Mid way through the 2nd quarter tonight the Cavs were down 49-24. They ended up winning the game by 4. Yesterday the Cavs were up by 21 in the 3rd quarter against the Knicks and nearly lost. I wish they would just make up their minds and play a solid game all the way through. If they do that, I have no doubt that they will make the playoffs this year.

I turn on Dream Job on ESPN tonight, and which highlight am I watching? Try Kyle Orton fumbling into the endzone in Columbus. I really needed to see that again. Thanks.
I got summoned for jury duty starting tomorrow. It wasn't even my judge though. Some other judge is using the juror pool from my judge. What a crock. If my judge goes on vacation then I want to go on vacation too!

Across the nation today reports were streaming in of unusual electrical occurrences and bizarre abnormal appliance failures.

From Ohio to Nevada and Washington State to Arizona, thousands of mystified citizens reported that, for no apparent reason, simple function appliances such as garage door openers, automatic gate latches and even some cell phones, appeared to fail simultaneously.

There has been no official comment on these reports.

In view of the quality of past official explanations of similar occurances anyway, it is highly doubtful that, were such comment to be forthcoming, they would serve to enlighten the nation's darkened garages and their equally "in the dark" owners.

This odd phenomena is apparently without precedent in scope.

You can read more about this in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Why for some reason does this remind me of the scene in Independence Day when TV signals started getting staticy all over the world? It also seems odd that this would happen near military bases.

Today: 60 degrees and sunny, perfect for driving around in a new car.

Tomorrow: 25 degrees and snowing, perfect for sitting in my house waiting for 60 degrees and sunny.

Should I retire my personalized plate now or transfer it over? If I retire it, what should I replace it with?

Hooray for me. I get to pick it up on Wednesday. I'll post some pictures Wednesday night.

This time Monday I will know if I am the owner of a 2004 Infiniti G35 6MT sedan.

Did you guys see the story about the guy who got bit by a shark, then swam to shore with the shark still attached, got in his car and drove 2 miles down the road to the clubhouse WITH THE SHARK STILL BITING HIS LEG! Granted it wasn't a great white or anything, a but 2 foot long shark is still a tad too large for me to consider walking around in my normal daily life with it attached to my leg.
Barry Bonds and at least 20 other major league baseball players are guilty of steroid abuse, and hopefully they get caught. Just look at the stats... 2 years ago, no drugs testing, 1026 players, including Omar Vizquel hit 60 home runs. Last year, random sample drug testing, 3 players hit 50 home runs.

Want to stop them from taking drugs? How about a drug test every game. I suspect that would certainly have the desired impact.
Waiting is the better part of valor. Or something. Perhaps because of my cowardice, I find that I hate waiting. Waiting for the wholesaler to give me a quote on the car. Waiting for school to end. Waiting to win the lottery. Waiting waiting waiting. Blah.

Okay, so since time began, man has dreamed of flight, right? I know I have. I've always wanted to swoop between the mountains and hang suspended high above the earth and all that jazz. So naturally, I decided to try my hand at flying a helicopter. But here's the problem: Everyone makes such a damn big deal out of operating one. I want to fly a helicopter, not look at a bunch of crazy dials.

You know what man has not dreamed of since time immemorial? Keeping an eye on his H-over-G indicator. Cavemen did not look to the hawks in the heavens and wonder about their approximate yaw angle, whatever the hell that is. Old Orville and Wilbur sure as hell didn't dream about zeroing the VOR needle for bearing correction—I'll tell you that for free. So why in hell is some instructor screaming at the top of his lungs for me to look down at the console when I'm in the middle of trying to avoid crashing into a barn?! Something tells me there's no barn-missing meter down there!
I think the Fox News Channel should make a swimsuit calendar. Every month should be Jane Skinner.
Baseball trip options have come up.

Option 1 : Mets, Phillies, Blue Jays

Option 2 : Reds, White Sox, Cubs

Option 3 : Padres, Angels, side trip to Las Vegas

Talk amongst yourselves.

When does Fantasy Baseball start? I can't wait until the time I finally get to draft my team that will be made up of guys on the DL. The Indians injuries have already started. Jody Gerut has a torn rotater cuff. Who needs young players when they have that guy though. Or how about that other guy. Woo! Throw in the Japanese gay guy and look out World Series! A perfect time for some Major League quotes if ever there was one.

I've never heard of half of these guys and the ones I do know are way past their prime.
Most of these guys never had a prime.
This guy here is dead!

Hello, you may not know us but we're a major league baseball team. And since we haven't won a pennant in over thirty years, nobody recognizes us. That's why I carry the American Express card. No matter how many games out of first we are, its cool. It keep us from getting shut out at our favorite hotels and restaurant type places. So you looking for some big league clout, apply for the little green home run hitter. Look what it's done for us, people still don't recognize us but we're contenders now. The American Express card, don't steal home without it!

In case you haven't noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven't...

First I talked to Justin and he made a lot of sense in that I should get the G35 sedan without the aero package option, as I can always add that later. Then Ryan comes along and tries to get me to buy the G35 coupe. I definitely like the coupe a lot better, but I'm not sure if I like it $5000 better. I emailed the dealer and asked if it were possible to swap out coupe seats for sedan seats. If they can do that I'll probably buy the coupe. If not, I'll buy the sedan.

A conversation tonight reminded me of the city of concrete (possibly also known as Montreal.) Concrete is everywhere
you look and everything is made of concrete. Shade? No thanks, try this concrete. Walking across the desert of concrete? Of course you are. Maybe they got a great deal on the millions of tons of concrete. Maybe they just hate grass and or trees. Whatever the case, I recommend not wearing pants if you choose to walk around. You will literally sweat your ass off and it will run for cover. I doubt that I'll be going back anytime soon... or ever.

Boy, Dolphin No Longer On Speaking Terms
KEY WEST, FL—Jimmy O'Dell, 9, and his animal friend Skippy, a bottlenose dolphin, are no longer on speaking terms, the boy said Monday. "I told Skippy I wanted to ride his back out to Buccaneer's Cove to look for buried treasure," O'Dell said. "But Skippy kept squeaking that it wasn't safe. He's always contradicting me, and I'm sick of it. That finned freak is dead to me." Skippy refused to comment.
I finished my taxes tonight... I get back a total of $450. I seem to always owe the state though. This year they took an additional 300 reasonably priced candy bars from me.
Quote of the night:

As Shaq shoulders into Z's face and Z gets called for the foul

"It's hard to see how that was a defensive foul unless he fouled him with his cheek or his chin." - Bill Walton

Runner up:

"Shaq got suspended for his profound language." - Bill Walton

Indeed Bill... it really was profound.

Jamaal Freaking Magloire?

Give me a break.

That freaking bastage that turned down Purdue after he already committed to them and then went to Kentucky?


Give me a break.

Hey, you may not know who I am put I shoot 6% from the field and average .9 points a game. I'm a NBA All-Star because I am taller than 4 foot 6! I am so great.

What a pile.

The friggin game is supposed to be an exciting exhibition for the fans. Now I ask you... who is more exciting? Jamaal FREAKING Magloire or anyone else? Namely, Carlos Boozer, Zydrunas, of LeBron James. Who? ANYONE is the answer you're looking for.

James : 20.8 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 5.9 APG.
Boozer : 14.3 PPG, 10.9 RPG, 2.2 APG
Ilgauskas : 14.1 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 1.4 APG

Magloire : 11.7 PPG, 9.4 RPG, 1.3 APG

Which one of those players is better than Magloire? How about ALL OF THEM.

I can feel the rage growing. My hair is about to pop out into an afro.
Explain to me this. You're working at a job, making loads of cash, and even though you aren't particularly exceptional at your job, you are guaranteed to make a high seven-figure salary for the next several years. Why would you leave that position for a far more dangerous and lower paying job? Answer: you wouldn't... unless your name is Drew Henson.

He's giving up a cushy baseball job for a punishing football job. A job mind you, that he probably won't even be that good at.

Next question. Now that the football season is over, San Diego is officially on the clock. I personally think they should trade the pick for 2 first rounders and get themselves an offensive lineman and a tight end. Kellen Winslow Jr perhaps? I think so. Give Brees some time and he'll be fine. You can't expect the guy to learn the position while you're yanking him in and out of the lineup or when he's on his back with a defensive lineman sitting in his grill. Perhaps if he had someone to throw to other than Tomlinson the team might be better also... Shocking. The younger Manning is not the answer.

I can see why it bleeds when someone puts their knee in your face.

- Phil Simms

The first half - B-O-R-I-N-G-!

The second half - good.

I wanted Carolina to win, but in the end it didn't really matter. Any team that can win two Super Bowls in three years and can win 15 games in a row must actually be really good. The Patriots don't have any flash, so maybe that's why people look past them. They're good though. I give them credit.

Next point: I bet that the 3 remaining expansion teams (Seattle, Jacksonville, Houston) make the Super Bowl before the Browns.
