Come again? You know I don't speak Spanish. In English, please. What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole... wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? I'm not even mad, that's amazing.
Mobile ESPN is calling it quits.

Maybe if there service was better they'd still be around. I don't know anyone that actually has the service, and I only know one person who even tried to get the service. While it sounds like a good idea, it apparently was definitely lacking in execution.

Unlike typical humans, who are made up of mostly water, I am made up of mostly crisco.

Editorial note: while that may be true, only I am allowed to make such posts here. I'll leave this one here, but don't let it happen again.

Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Ye had better learn t' speak like a swashbuckler today, or else ye be sorry.

Jokes for TLAP day:

A pirate walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder. The bartender says, "hey, that's really cool: where did you get it?" The parrot says, "from a pirate ship, of course."

A pirate walks into a bar with a hook hand and an eyepatch. Bartender says "that's rough, man: what happened?" Pirate holds up his arm and says "arrr, swordfight." The bartender nods and asks about the eyepatch. Pirate says, "a gull shat in it." The bartender blinks and says "you wouldn't lose an eye from that, would you?" The pirate sighs and says "you would if it's your first day with a hook hand."

A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel sticking out of his shorts, and says, "arr, bartender, bring me a flagion of rum!" The bartender says, "sure, pal, but what's with the steering wheel?" The pirate growls, "I don't know, but it's driving me nuts."

Reggie Bush Investigation

An eight-month probe uncovers evidence that Reggie Bush and his family appear to have accepted improper benefits from prospective agents while at USC. The benefits, which could lead to NCAA sanctions for USC and retroactively cost Bush his college eligibility and Heisman.

This is a huge freaking deal. If USC loses it's championship and Bush loses his Heisman, that will be the biggest NCAA sanction I've ever seen.

Even though it's stupid, this is the NCAA we're talking about... what if the NCAA decides that Matt Leinart's Heisman is suspect too because Bush was on the team? I personally don't think that anything should be done to USC in this case. It seems to me that they didn't know anything about his activities, and when they learned of possible problems, they made rule changes to handle it. I do think it's very possible that Bush will be stripped of his Heisman, which is just plain stupid. He was without question the best and most exciting player in football last year whether he talked to an agent or not.

My companies stock (PCP) needs to stop screwing around and go up $18 per share so that I can sell. That would be most helpful for I am broke. Hella broke even.

For the last month it's been flat. For the last year it's only up about $8. The analysts predict it will be up 30% over the next year, so get going already. They also say to overweight your portfolio with it and that the target price is $79-$80 (it's currently about $58). Well get going already. I've got bills to pay. Stop slacking.

I am really looking forward to school being done. In fact, there is no way that it can possibly be done fast enough.

5 years ago today... I'll never forget where I was or how I learned about it.

I was emailing Justin back and forth about some Fantasy Football trade.

Someone told me to check the news on my pager and it said that a commuter plane had flown into the World Trade Center.

I emailed Justin and he didn't seem to know much more, and then the whole situation just descended into chaos.

We can't ever forget the feeling of that day. It NEEDS to be painful for us to watch. To some extent, we can't completely move on and allow the wound to close.

If Purdue doesn't score 50 points every game, then they're going to lose more than they win.
If Purdue plays like this against the big boys, they don't stand a chance.
I am PISSED right now. The freakng post office lost 3 payment letters of mine from last month, so now I am late on three payments. Now, if I pay those, and then they happen to find the freaking letters, those will be cashed too. This is awesome.

If these appear on my credit report, I'm going to be very angry.

Usually I don't get pissed off when I'm right about something, but this is just so freaking ridiculous.

BERLIN (Reuters) - The United States faced growing opposition on Thursday to its bid to persuade other powers to impose sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program, with China urging dialogue and France signaling room for maneuver.

As top diplomats from six major powers met in Berlin to consider what steps to take after Iran ignored a U.N. Security Council deadline to stop sensitive nuclear work, China and France signaled they were focusing on diplomacy.

What is the freaking point of a deadline if you're too useless to do anything about them when they pass? Regardless of whether the U.S. has made all the right choices in the past 5 years, we have proven that we're not afraid to stand up for what we believe is right, whereas the rest of the world just twiddles their thumbs and apparently waits for the nukes to start flying.

What would France do if someone flew a plane into the Eiffel Tower? My guess is that they would immediately surrender.

Cedar Point is announcing their new roller coaster tomorrow. I don't expect it to be anything too crazy, but then again, it's Cedar Point, so you never know.

If it is completely crazy, I'll be happy. If it is "normal" I'll still be happy.

I'm going at least one more time this season, so I'll be able to check it out when I go.

Yay for me. I'm a roller coaster dork.

Two Raptors did fly yesterday. They did some cool manuevers and showed off a bit. Then they refueled in mid-air while circling Cleveland, so that was pretty cool too. I'd never seen that before.

The Blue Angels put on a fantastic show. The weather was perfect for them, and they did not disappoint.

Monday, September 4, 2006

I was at the airshow on Saturday, when of course it was steadily raining all day thanks to Ernesto. The F-22 Raptor was supposed to fly by that day, and only that day. Well, it never made it, so I was hoping that it would fly either yesterday or today. It was a no show yesterday, along with the F-117 Nighthawk (the stealth fighter.) Yesterday was 100% better than Saturday though. Tbe B-1 did 6 passes -- it's too big to land or takeoff from the airshow. The Blue Angels were able to do their regular routine, as opposed to their low-show on Saturday. They had a problem with one of their slot planes though; number 2. The pilot took off and just circled around and landed. He got out of the number 2 plane and into their spare number 7 plane and took right back off. Even when things go wrong, they still don't fail to put on a good show. Hopefully the Raptor flies today, but I won't be holding my breath.
