3:35 PM - Damn I miss this show!!!

Yup, I miss the Animaniacs. This show was at times guaranteed to have you on the floor laughing. It was that funny. Thank you Steven Spielberg.

Do you want to know what was guaranteed to make you laugh though? It could be Pink & The Brain. It could even be Rita and Runt. It could also be that Chicken that thinks it's really a person (and it could fool people into thinking it's human amazingly). But it's none of those things.

Thanks to YouTube an episode of Good Idea, Bad Idea. This one is in time for Halloween too.

10:36 AM - Anxious to See how you handle this

More e-mail spam. Not really a joke, perhaps not even a true story. But it's still very touching all the same. I like it and I share it here.

One day, when I was a freshman in high school,

I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school.

His name was Kyle.

It looked like he was carrying all of his books.

I thought to myself, "Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday?

He must really be a nerd ."

I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on.

As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him.

They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his ar ms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt.

His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him.

He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes

My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him and as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye.

As I handed him his glasses, I said, "Those guys are jerks. "

They really should get lives.

" He looked at me and said, "Hey thanks!"

There was a big smile on his face.

It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.

I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived.

As it turned out, he lived near me,! so I asked him why I had never seen him before.

He said he had gone to private school before now.

!
I would have never hung out with a private school kid before.

We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books.

He turned out to be a pretty cool kid.

I asked him if he wanted to play a little football with my friends

He said yes.

We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him.

Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again.

I stopped him and said, "Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!

"He just laughed and handed me half the books.

!

Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends.

When we were seniors, we began to think about college.

Kyle decided on Georgetown, and I was going to Duke.

I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem.

He was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business on a football scholarship.

Kyle was valedictorian of our class.

I teased him all the time about being a nerd .

He had to prepare a speech for graduation.

!

I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and speak

Graduation day, I saw Kyle.

He looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school.

He filled out and actually looked good in glasses.

He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him.

Boy, sometimes I was jealous.

Today was one of those days.

I could see that he was nervous about his speech.

So, I smacked him on the back and said, "Hey, big guy, you'll be great!"

He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled.

"Thanks," he said.

As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began

"Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years.

Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach...but mostly your friends...

I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them.

I am going to tell you a story."

I just looked at my friend with disbelief! as he told the story of the first day we met.

He had planned to kill himself over the weekend.

He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home.

He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile.

"Thankfully, I was saved.

My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable."

I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment.

I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile.

Not until that moment did I realize its depth.

Never underestimate the power of your actions.

With one small gesture you can change a person's life.

For better or for worse.

God puts us all in each other's lives to impact one another in some way.

You now have two choices,

you can:
1) Pass this on to your friends or
2) Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart.

As you can see, I took choice number 1.

"Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly."

There is no beginning or end ? Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow is mystery.

Today is a gift.

It's National Friendship Week. Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND.

If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends.

WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS LETTER, YOU'RE REQUESTED TO SEND IT TO AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE, INCLUDING THE PERSON WHO SENT IT TO YOU.
Of course this is a bit mushy, but this is cool. This is one reason why I believe it's best to treat people the way you want to be treated.

3:15 PM - What Does Your Candy Heart Say?

I wanted to post this in time for Sweetest Day. This was just too funny to wait until St. Valentine's Day to post this. I laughed hard when I saw the word cynical in there. Some of this is not too far off from reality. I wonder what'll change the cynicism.

Your Candy Heart Says "Get Real"

You're a bit of a cynic when it comes to love.
You don't lose your head, and hardly anyone penetrates your heart.

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: is all about the person you're seeing (with no mentions of v-day!)

Your flirting style: honest and even slightly sarcastic

What turns you off: romantic expectations and "greeting card" holidays

Why you're hot: you don't just play hard to get - you are hard to get
What Does Your Candy Heart Say?

11:22 PM - The all-Midwest world series

It's set. The St. Louis Cardinals are now set to take on the Detroit Tigers on Saturday. The Cardinals beat the New York Mets tonight 3-1 to take the series in game seven. It went right down to the wire. The Mets had three men on base only to get strike three at the last at bat. The Cardinals scored the game's last two runs in the top of the 9th inning. The Tigers beat the Oakland Athletics in Detroit last Saturday to sweep the series.

I was a little too happy to see the Cards' win the series then I realized Chicago wasn't in it. DAMN!!! But what can I say, I like to watch baseball. And now we can finally watch the fall classic.
St. Louis versus Detroit in the 2006 World Series!!!

Sorry about the image overload here.

7:57 PM - Top 10 reason the Chicago Cubs sucks...



The Cubs are my team but it's just sad that year after years they can't get through. 2003 was a great year only to have made it to the NLCS and then have something unfortunate happen to cause the Cubs to lose. I could attribute this to the infamous curse of the goat. But I try not to believe in superstition a lot of this has to be that the Cubs have fielded some horrible teams.

It's quickly approaching the century mark the last time the Cubs actually won the world series. It's 60 years since the Cubs won the pennant. Of course they made a big deal in 2003 about the Cubs winning their first post-season series since 1908 (that would be when they beat the Braves in the NLDS, who seem to have a great tendency to make the playoffs only to be eliminated in the first round). Well at least in time for next year we have a new manager and a winner just like Dusty Baker who couldn't get the job done.

Thanks to Late Night with David Letterman, a top 10 list of reason why the Cubs haven't won a world series since 1908. This was funny actually. Oh and this is old BTW, but at least I can see this again thanks to YouTube.

12:14 PM - The right choice?

I warn you that as you read this piece of email spam, the language will become offensive. This is a funny story and should be taken that way. But if I may say so what is implied to have eventually happened is quite hilarious.

There were a total of 15 passengers boarding a small plane on their way to Florida. One black mother and her child were on their way to visit relatives while the other passengers consisted of the KKK on their way to a convention. The plane took off and after flying for approximately 12 minutes an announcement came over the intercom from the pilot saying:

"We have overloaded this flight. We are going to have to start throwing luggage out the window so the plane won't go down."

Two minutes later you could see luggage being thrown out the window. Five minutes after that, the pilot made a second announcement.

"We are still experiencing problems. We're sorry, but the plane is still overloaded and we're going to have to get rid of some of the weight so the plane
won't go down."

"We're going to have to ask some passengers to jump out of the window when we
call you by your name. To make it fair, we'll go alphabetically. We'll start with A. Will all the African Americans please jump now?"

The black woman and her child continued to sit. The pilot came over the intercom system.

"Next is B. Will all the Black people please jump now"?

The Black woman and child continued to sit. The pilot came over the intercom system again.

"Next is C. Will all the colored people please jump now? All the KKK was now staring at the motherand child. The black woman and child continued to sit.

The child then looked up at her mum and said: "Mum aren't we all of those?"

The mother then replied to her daughter, "Baby, we niggers tonight honey and the K's come before the N's."

11:55 AM - A bizzarre series of questions

How do people get this crap in their emails? And who makes this up? I never used to get this crap in my emails until recently.

Here are a few things to think about that you probably have never thought about;

Can you cry under water?

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to "put your two cents in".. . but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to?

Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.

Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane?

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

If Wiley E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it's in your butt?

Do you ever wonder why you gave me your e-mail address in the first place?
To the last question. YES!!! I do.

1:31 PM - The Ultimate Blond Joke

This is one messed up joke in more ways than ones. Read on!!!

Yesterday I was having some work done at the car dealer.A blonde woman, came in and asked for a seven-hundred-ten. They all looked at each other, and the Mechanic asked, "What is aseven-hundred-ten?"

The blonde replied, "You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine. I lost it and need a new one. It had always been there."

The mechanic gave the blonde a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like. She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710.

He then took her over to another car which had the hood up, and asked, "Is there a 710 on this car?"

She pointed and said, "Of course, it's right there."

Click here to learn the identity of the mysterious 710:

10:39 AM - Law & Order: Criminal Intent is...

My favorite cop show right now. I didn't get to see this show much except for reruns over the summer and I must say that this show is really stirring the pot this season. I just saw the episode last night, it was a good episode and quite controversial.

It started off with a member of New York's Finest ( Det. Mike Logan) getting into it with a member of New York's Bravest (Some fireman whose name escapses me at this moment). It was a good episode though because the case dealt with a murder of a fireman who as the episode moves forward is on the down low (for those of you who don't understand he's married but he's a frequent guest at a gay bar and he was carrying on a relationship with a man behind his wife's back). So it started off with a bang, usually an episode starts off with a murder not a firehouse brawl of some type.

But this season has been interesting. It seems Det. Logan and his partner Det. Megan Wheeler are takling some controversial cases, while Det. Robert Goren and Det. Alexandra Eames are taking on the who-dun-it cases. See a couple of episodes ago Det. Logan investigated the murder of a man who got killed on his motorcycle and he finds out that this was somehow connected to a young man who was in a "relationship" with his teacher. Det. Goren seems to be taking cases which will take an emotional toll on him like when his partner Eames gets kidnapped and somehow it was connected with his mentor. Last week he was snooping around a sleepy suburban police department which was connected somehow to another murder.

I'm really liking this season. This is like what the 6th season and things have gotten more interesting as time moved on. Usually it's about time for a series to wrap it up after a shorter time but this season makes me want to stay on this ride. I'd like for them to keep this up.

1:09 PM - A soloist...


SGA crown forum, originally uploaded by lbj79us.

Almost a week ago I went to the SGA Crown Forum. I snapped a few picture and this one was a good one.

This guy was doing a solo there. It seemed to have gone to a very sluggish start but then it started to pick up. If you can see in the picture, some people were in the crowd was standing up. They were feeling the song. Started off sluggish but ended well. That's the mark of a good performance.

3:04 PM - What Part of Fall Are You?

You Are Apple Cider

Smooth and comforting. But downright nasty when cold.
What Part of Fall Are You?

Yeah I don't know what apple cider is. The only inkling I've had of this beverage is that people could be intoxicated by this. Almost like alchohol. Oh well, I'm amazed fall has been upon us for weeks now.

9:53 PM - Cyanide

I got this in my email tonight. It's probably been in your emails too, but in case it hasn't here it is. I just hope that cyanide isn't available for prescription. Besides I don't know why, Cyanide isn't exactly a life saving or life improving medicine.

A respectable lady went into the pharmacy and walked right up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, "I would like to buy some cyanide."

The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?" The lady replied, "I need it to poison my husband."

The pharmacist's eyes got big, and he exclaimed, "Lord, have mercy! I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband! That's against the law! I'll lose my license! They'll throw both of us in jail! All kinds of bad things will happen! Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide!"

The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife.

The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied, "Well, now that's different. You didn't tell me you had a prescription."

12:14 AM - Video: Aussie Rules Football


I haven't seen a game in years but I'll have to admit how much hits these guys take and without wearing a lot of equipment. Almost a little more exciting than the National Football League except no forward passes, no rushing, or even anything resembling a line of scrimmage. Thanks to YouTube I get to see some Australian Football action.

Perhaps I should post some more of these videos.
