Hug it out

Check out this story in the Washington Post.

Then he tucked the gun into the pocket of his nylon sweatpants.

“I think I may have come to the wrong house,” he said, looking around the patio of the home in the 1300 block of Constitution Avenue NE.

“I’m sorry,” he told the group. “Can I get a hug?”

Amazing. I can’t tell if that’s the power of a good hug, or good wine and cheese. Maybe both.


News of the wierd

Some strange news stories you may not have heard of.

 This is a new twist on handling a divorce.

This just sounds like a really, really horrible job.

Designer water.  ‘Nuff said.

“And there is distrust in Washington. I am surprised, frankly, at the amount of distrust that exists in this town. And I’m sorry it’s the case, and I’ll work hard to try to elevate it.”— Speaking on National Public Radio, Jan. 29, 2007.

I think you’re succeeding George, for once.


No they didn’t…

A little while back my family and I decided to have lunch at a local Mexican place.  It’s really a good place, made even better by the use of a coupon.  We’ve been there in the past and really like it.  We all love Mexican so it’s a good choice.

Anyway, we walked into the restaurant to something I’ve never seen before, and hopefully won’t see again.  At one of the tables there was another family there eating lunch.  Apparantly not watching TV while they were eating was something they couldn’t bear to do, so they brought a portable DVD player with them to watch while they ate.  Their child was perhaps 18 months, possibly less. 

I guess it’s too hard to make it through a lunch now without TV so people are taking them with them to restaurants?  I’m not even sure what would cause someone to want to do this anyway.  At first I thought it might be so the parents could enjoy a little alone time to talk while the child was distracted, you know, I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt.  But they were watching it too!

I guess the muppets were so interesting that they just had to be watched at that moment. 

When we’ve told people this a frequent response has been the heading of this post.  I think it’s clearly warranted.


Important research alert

Today out of England on the BBC we have a report that they have identified what causes beer goggles. 

Apparantly after some serious scientific research they have determined that alcohol is NOT the only factor.  Your eye sight and the smokiness of the room contribute.


It gets better.  They have developed a formula to determine your liklihood of suffering from this serious affliction.  Check it below.


Forget E=MC2, this formula is now required learning for all potential college students.  How many horribly awkward moments could be avoided by the timely use of this formula when at the bar?

They need to integrate this bad boy into one of those watches that does like 60 different things.  This should be option #2 after telling time.

Frat Boy 1: Dude, you can’t go talk to her, your beer goggle index is 87 right now!

Frat Boy 2: No way man!  That girl is totally hot.  I am so going to talk to her. 



Guy hits a deer

This guy is a piece of work.

Dude hits a hermaphrodite 7 legged deer and he says “It was tasty.”  Are you kidding me?  That’s his quote?

Personally, I think this is the money quote here:

“It was definitely a freak of nature,” Lisko said. “I guess it’s a real rarity.”

You guess?  YOU GUESS!!!!  It was a deer with 7 freaking legs.  And both sex organs.  And you guess it was a rarity???  That almost qualifies for understatement of the year.


In other news Tim says these are cool socks.  I agree.  If only I was actually able to ride my bike instead of looking at it longingly.
