Dear Facebook, 2001 Called…

Remember when the internet first was getting big? I do.

Remember how websites used a lot of flashy/spinning pictures (gifs) to get your attention?

Remember when they would throw tons of pop-up windows on your screen to get you to subsidize their sites?

Remember that they would ask you to hit “CTRL-D” to bookmark their site?

Remember when they would make an alert box pop up to ask you to make their website your browser’s home page?

Well…Facebook must have pulled out ye’ ol’ web 0.5-beta handbook to try to find some old school ways to annoy us.

Are you even kidding me, right now? Get outta here with that cheap canadian viagra “make us your homepage” horse hockey. Facebook.com is the number 2 most visited site on the web. They’re not going to beat Google…especially not with bush league tactics like, “make us your homepage.”

I swear. For being such a genius, Mark Zuckerberg is kind of a

dumbass.

Warrior Dash Training

On Saturday, September 17th, I’m running in the Warrior Dash in Twin Lakes. My thought was that while getting ready for the wedding, I would have been fit and ready to go by late Summer/early Fall.

Here’s what actually happened:

  1. Didn’t have time to do anything but work the last two

    weeks before my wedding.

  2. The week of the wedding was the busiest of all.
  3. Went to Mexico, consuming nothing but buffet food and unlimited drinks for a week and a half.
  4. Came back to work viagra online without prescription my old job and my new job every day for two weeks.

Now, I finally have time to actually exercise, but I have to get my badonkadonk in gear to do it.

Lost: Confirmed Dead Screencaps

Polar Bear Desert
A polarbear skeleton in the desert? It even has a Dharma Initiative Hydra Station logo on its collar!

Ghost Buster
Miles Straume, professional Ghostbuster! General A-hole.

Biohazard
Why did the “rescue crew” bring biohazard equipment to the island with them?

Ben Airport
And why are they looking for Ben? And what’s with this picture where Ben is in a tacky suit, going through airport security?

Thanks to DarkUFO.blogspot.com for the screen caps!

Go see Cloverfield


We went to see Cloverfield today.  WOW!  A great movie.  While some may feel hesitant to see the movie because it is shot in first person (a la The Blair Witch Project), but the camera view REALLY makes the movie.  It puts you in the moment. I have seen the trailer with the Statue of Liberty head flying down the street at least 50 times, but while I watched it in the theater, my body tensed up and it really freaked me out.   J.J. Abrams is a genius.  I’m looking forward to many more fantastic movies from him (including the new Star Trek movie, which was previewed before Cloverfield). Cloverfield: 5/5 Stars! 

Have to Hear It

Somebody e-mailed this to me… :D

A man goes to the Chicago Bear ticket office and inquires about purchasing
play-off tickets. The ticket teller replies that there weren’t any
tickets for sale because the Bears did not make it to the play-offs.

The following day the same man goes to the Chicago Bear ticket office and
inquires about purchasing Bear play-off tickets. The ticket teller
politely replies that there weren’t any tickets for sale because the Bears
did not make it to the play-offs.

This goes on for an entire week.

The man goes to the Bear ticket office inquiring about play-off tickets
and the teller again tells him there are no tickets for sale because the
Bears did not make it to the play-offs.

Another week of this goes by and the man still is asking the ticket teller
about Bear play-off tickets. Finally the ticket teller says in a loud
voice . . .

I’VE TOLD YOU FOR THE LAST 2 WEEKS THERE ARE NO TICKETS AVAILABLE BECAUSE
THE BEARS DID NOT MAKE THE PLAY-OFFS.”

The man replied, “I know. I drive all the way from Green Bay just to hear
you say that!”
