Apparel. Started out with my new found admiration for the vee dub. Compounded by the lack of lovin for the 2.5L model ... I decided to spoof the clever GTI ads and come up with my own ... well the requeset came up for t-shirts so ... voila!!Well it started as a joke but someone actually bought one!! Then another!! Most of you know that my other passion is U.S. Soccer. It roxxors my soxxors ... so I came to thinking ... clever German advertising ... World Cup in Germany ... let's use it ag
The FEDS came by my office today!!!Specifically, they were SPECIAL AGENTS with the U.S. Department of Treasury under the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) ... complete with the badge flash upon introduction!!We had known about a bunch of fraudsters using our registered broker/dealer name to con poor folks in Australia and Asia. These brazen mofos actually setup a website using our own real mailing address. It's incredible. They've expanded their con to include the IRS
TWBI fancy myself a closet 0ld sk00l computer geek. When I was 8 or so, I asked my dad for an Atari. He told me that's just for games so he got me a Commodore 64 instead. Wow bad move. I quickly went from playing just games to running I shiz you not one of three most underground BBSs on the westcoast. My best friend ran one, he got caught by a long-distance company for phreaking so he had to take it down cos his parents got pretty ######. The other dude, Leading Edge I think it was called,
International flag distributor to Muslim countries!! Brilliant!! Off-shore manufacturing in Taiwan to mass produce all manner of Western flags on the cheap and distribute all throughout the Middle East!! And here's the catch ... make out of particularly flammable chamay so they go through em like butter!! They're gonna need at least 5 flags if they want that particularly Jihad-esque CNN shot!These guys must go through at least 50 flags in any given day in any given streat corner. More than
A new Speilberg movie portrays the aftermath of the tragedy that was the Munich olympics in 1972 which I am VERY VERY much looking forward to see ... The mission later became known as Operation Mivtzah Elohim or Operation "Wrath of God."
Dead in the water.I sit here in sheer amazement as to how dependent we are on our server. Having just flat out conked out overnight, we are literally incapacitated to do absolutely anything. Beholden to the tech guy. That is if we even had a tech guy. With all of two handfuls of employees, we all wear many hats - and unfortunately, my IT hat extends to CTRL-ALT-DELETE. With our collective knowledge of computers (not much), we are theorizing that the power supply itself may have given out.
DOOM was not as bad as I had anticipated. I went in expecting a mind-numbingly stupid movie but was content in wasting a couple hours with senseless violence. In an interesting twist, the teaser was actually showing the worse part of the movie ... I had feared that a good part of the movie would play off of the first-person shooter concept and be shot from that perspective. In fact, that clip was more of the equivalent of a short dream sequence (something like it) and fit in very well!! The
Here's a nice appetizer I learned from my girlfriend. I made some for some Thanksgiving snack last night and it was a hit. It's very easy to make, requires no cooking, and goes GREAT with beer 1 pound raw shrimp15 green limes3 medium sized tomatoes1 onion1 bushel of cilantro (just several stems will do)Salt and pepper to tasteServing size: a lot.Peal and deveign the shrimp then tear apart into smaller peices. Wash and set aside for now.Squeeze out all the limes, without the pulp or seeds,
You might recall, if you have no life, reading in prior iterations of my blog that there was this duck in front of my office who gave birth to a baby duck. The baby duck would follow momma duck around where ever she went ... even to the artificial pond where a drain pipe (allegedly) swallowed baby duck up For days thereafter, momma duck would swim near the killer baby-duck-swallowing drain pipe quacking away ... so loudly at some points, I could hear it from my 8th floor office!! Day in day o
Man, I am so ###### off!!! That stupid little punk that started that stupid little dumb milliondollarhomepage thing is on today's Wall Street Journal!!! Remember when that stupid site was first posted here? It had hardly any ads and a funny FAQ, at best. Now go over there and you'll see the stupid kid on stupid talk shows showing off his stupid success. Well I'm sick of having to slave off here in the REAL WORLD of office life making a fraction of that stupid kid just because he came up w
I went to go see the latest Harry Potter film over the weekend. It's the first of any Harry Potter material I've been exposed to. I've always balked at my friends who have stood in line to purchase the book or go see the latest movie. Mostly because I was insulted by the hipper-than-thou attitude of the author. I know many more single-moms deserving of her fortune, the evil wench.This film, and dare I argue all of the Harry Potter franchise, is one big Pokeymon ... a reference I make to all
