Bloodshed In 1... 2...


Zooey > Katy


I don't know about the "porn body" necessarily, but I've always thought this exact thing. Zooey is gorgeous, and yes, Ms. Perry looks a lot like her.

A lot of people may like Katy Perry, but for me, she is nothing more than a slutty version of Zooey, with cleavage.

Here they are together:


An Incredible Tattoo


I've actually seen this on several sites now, and it's about time I post it. Why? Because I presume it's on the same arm. I mean why would he get the same tattoo twice, since it reads something different upside down? That's why.

Yeah you're seeing "art&science" one way and "philosophy" the other.

Too cool!

World Cup Prediction


Something similar happened to the mid-90's U.S. Opens (golf, not tennis). I'll let you look it up, but it had to do with Ernie Els & Lee Janzen. It didn't hold true, however.

Update: OK, I had to go look it up. Here it is (or was):

1988 Curtis Strange
1989 Curtis Strange
1990 Hale Irwin
1991 Payne Stewart
1992 Tom Kite
1993 Lee Janzen
1994 Ernie Els
1995 Corey Pavin
1996 Steve Jones
1997 Ernie Els
1998 Lee Janzen
1999 Payne Stewart
2000 Tiger Woods ...wait WTF!

See my money was on an older Tom Kite in 1999. But then Payne Stewart had to go and ruin it. But then he dies in a plane crash, and that totally made it OK. That was a sad day.

Anyway anyone picking 59-year old Hale Irwin in 2000 was much more of an idiot than I was for picking a then 49-year old Tom Kite in 1999. But wait, Curtis Strange was only 45 for the 2000 U.S. Open, wouldn't he be a good pick?

OK it was flawed a few years ago... But then again, most of us knew around this time that this guy named Tiger Woods would change things... a LOT.

Here's your IOTW (image of the week), or the month maybe! A quick tineye search didn't tell me anything other than the fact that this just might be the original.


Having no perspective whatsoever is what makes this image so much better than it actually seems at first.

Go Look Around


Step 1: Park
Step 2: Enter a store, and look around for a few minutes
Step 3: Trespass all you want...

Acoustic Levitation

Acoustic levitation is a method for suspending matter by using radiation pressure from intense sound waves - ex. an ultrasound emitter and reflector generate a sound pressure field. Some methods can levitate objects without creating sound heard by the human ear, others produce some audible sound. Apparently ants, spiders and ladybugs have endured this trick.

Here's an annoying video about it (turn down your volume a bit):

This is an acoustic levitation chamber I designed and built in 1987 as a micro-gravity experiment for NASA related subject matter. The 12 inch cubed plexiglass Helmholtz Resonant Cavity has 3 speakers attached to the cube by aluminum acoustic waveguides.

By applying a continuous resonant(600Hertz) sound wave, and by adjusting the amplitude and phase relationship amongst the 3 speakers; I was able to control levitation and movement in all 3 (x,y,z) axis of the ambient space.

This research was used to show the effects of micro-gravity conditions that exist in the space shuttle environment in orbit, but done here on Earth in a lab.
This is not "anti-gravity." So don't waste time arguing something pointless.

Brand New Louis CK

Here's your bad language warning!


Then a few days later he appeared at his premier of his new F/X show "Louie".

It is a good show. (Sidenote: Louis’s last show, "Lucky Louie", was not a good show, as much as it pains me to say it. I watched the whole thing, and I told people it had “promise,” which is to say, I TRIED.) Two episodes aired back-to-back last night, but we will confine our discussion to the pilot/premiere because some of us, it could be any of us, really, only watched the first episode, and are saving the second episode for a DVR treat, and cannot be fired because we quit. So: the bus sketch was charming enough, and I laughed out loud at “you red-headed nobody piece of shit” (context is useful, but so watch the show!), and the date with Chelsea Peretti had some really great moments, especially the bathroom sequence and the old helicopter gag. This show has a lot of promise, and I really mean it this time!

But here is the thing: the best part of the show was Louis’s stand-up, which is what happens when you are The Best Stand-Up Comedian in America. These interstitial “tone pieces,” meant to set the stage for the sketches, were by far the funniest and most honest part of the whole thing. And watching these jokes (for the second time*) kind of made you, or at least made me, wish that the show was just a half hour of Louis telling jokes on stage. No offense to the sketches, which were some of the funnier, best written, and most interesting things I have seen on TV in awhile, but in side-by-side comparison, they lose every time. And so, please enjoy all of the stand-up bits from last night’s premiere episode of Louie:


I don't know I kinda liked "Lucky Louie". His co-star was Pamela Adlon, who is also the voice of Bobby Hill on King of the Hill, and who alsu appeared on many episodes of Californication with David Duchovny. I was actually upset when it was discontinued. I think Louis CK is one of the best around right now.

An Unnecessary Confrontation

Click to enlarge

OK so this just happened to me on a quick trip to the corner store. I saw this big ugly bald guy beginning to walk across the street from a set of apartments -- toward the same store I was driving to. He had basically just stepped down onto the road from the ramp that leads up into the parking area for the apartments. I knew I had plenty of time to continue on, without causing him to fear being hit, but I slowed down and made sure he was gonna allow me to do so.

So I park on the side of the store like always. Being the nonconfrontationalist that I am, I waited for him to pass my door before getting out. He proceeds to turn around, and this is the dialogue that ensued:

Him: Good thing I wasn't in your way there dude.. (sarcastically)

Me: Nah..

Him: Oh I wasn't huh? (more sarcasm)

Me: I wasn't gonna hit you.

Him: So much for pedestrians having the right of way.

Me: You mean when you were jay-walking across the street in a dark shirt at night?

Him: Jay walking, my ass..

Me: There's no crosswalk right there - What do you expect me to do, stop right there in the middle of the street?

Him: For a pedestrian, yeah I do!

Me: I was just turning left, and I had plenty of time, Jesus Christ..

Him: Don't bring him into it, he didn't do anything wrong.

Me: Neither did I.

We were already inside the store at this point, and the clerk and another guy were looking at both of us as if there was about to be a gun fight.

I waited in line behind him.. He made his purchase, and turned around and glared at me like a serial killer on his way by.

I was like, "Did that really just happen for no necessary reason whatsoever???"

Cadillac V-Day In Shanghai

On May 9, 2009, thousands of spectators gathered at Shanghai's Formula 1 Circuit to watch a team of professional stunt drivers perform daring maneuvers with Cadillacs in celebration of the car's introduction to China. Be sure to watch John Heinricy and the Cadillac CTS-V set the production sedan record at the F1 course with a lap of 2:32.80.

1946 Modern Day Bikini


Here's the story (from Wiki):

Micheline Bernardini (born c. 1927) is a former nude dancer at the Casino de Paris before being chosen by Louis Réard to model the first modern-day bikini on July 5, 1946 at Piscine Molitor in Paris.

Réard could not find a model who would dare to wear his design. He ended up hiring Bernardini, a 19 year old nude dancer from the Casino de Paris as his model. That bikini, a string bikini with a g-string back made out of 30 square inches (194 sq. cm) of cloth with newspaper type printed across, was "officially" introduced at a fashion event at Piscine Molitor, a popular public pool in Paris. The bikini was a hit, especially among men, and Bernardini received over 50,000 fan letters.

Pretty amazing, really. Lots of areas you'd think were more educated (e.g. Peru, New Guinea). Likewise there are lots of areas you see are much more educated than you thought they were (e.g. Uzbekistan, Mongolia)!

The Chase Is On!


Videos like this are great because most dogs (or whoever is doing the chasing) wouldn't know what to do with it once he caught it.!

It's kinda like my dog Rusty. If I see a bug, all I have to say is "get the bug, get the bug!" and I've just given him about 5-10 minutes of extreme fun. Does he kill the bug? Sometimes.. Was it intended? I doubt it. Does he eat the bug? Rarely - unless it's a fly. For some reasons he will gobble up a fly, and used to have a taste for crickets, but that was only when he was very young. Roaches or beetles (the largest % of targets) - never.

Visualize the face a baby makes when he tastes something HORRID for the first time ever. Rusty will still not only make this face upon catching some bugs (and playing with them for a bit), but he'll also spit, shake his head, glare at the alien object with hatred, and then never touch it again.

Baby Birds And Momma

This family of birds continues to build a nest in the same place every year, and have about 3-4 little chics. I only see three this time. It's crazy how they come back to the same exact spot, but I guess it is a pretty good, and safe location about 6 inches under the porch overhang.

They're probably almost a week old. Today is the first day I've noticed they were getting so big that you could see them hanging out, as if they were struggling to share what little room they have up there. Last year one of them fell out and died - I hope Momma forces them out to fly before that happens again.

Both Momma and (I presume) Papa are constantly flying around close by, even if they aren't up there. They nearly dive-bomb us when we walk underneath. You can imagine what was going through her (or his) head when I was standing on a chair about 7-8 feet away taking pictures!

Hot Dogs Of The Week: Plattsburgh, NY Michigans

By Hawk Krall at Serious Eats

New York state's Michigan "Red Hots" are one of the most fascinating hot dog varieties that I've come across so far. The history of the Michigan Hot Dog is a jumble of legends, a culinary anthropologist's dream. Also known as "Texas Red Hots" but found in the North County region of New York state. The original sauce recipe supposedly came from a Detroit woman who moved to Plattsburgh, hence the name "Michigan" and is slightly similar to Detroit Coney sauce.

But locals will stress that Michigans have nothing to do with Detroit. The flavors are also similar to the Greek sauce of the Texas Weiner/Texas Hot stands than line the eastern edge of New York state—likely another influence on the creation of the "Michigan."

Throw in local Tobin's or Glazier "red skin" franks—bright red natural casing dogs not too different from Maine's Red Snappers — and buns that are similar to New England rolls but longer and sturdier, originally made by the now defunct Bouyea-Fasset bakery—and you have one of the most unique hot dogs in the country.

The sauce is thick and has a little bit of the Greek flavor (cumin? cinnamon?) found in similar sauces, without being overpowering. The raw onions are roughly chopped. You can get them "with," "without," or "buried" (under the frank). A thin line of yellow mustard is the standard condiment, some enjoy a few drops of hot sauce, but ketchup is never even suggested. The paper boat and sturdy roll help to hold it all together. Some places even let the rolls sit and "toughen" for 24 hours before slicing and serving, to better hold in all the sauce.

I was impressed with the great care that was taken to carefully build each dog—something you don't always see at a hot dog joint. To the casual observer, it might "just look like a chili dog." But to hot dog aficionados and North County residents it's a rare gem, worth a long drive just to
Clare & Carl's

taste one. And summer is definitely the time to give them a try since many of the Michigan stands (little more than roadside shacks) are closed for the ice and snow covered winters.

The most plausible story of the birth of the Michigan goes back to the first known Plattsburgh hot dog stand, Garth Otis' Michigan Hot Dog and Sandwich Shop, which opened in 1927. In 1935 Nitzi's (now Mcsweeney's Red Hots) opened, where the owner Jack Rabin got the secret sauce recipe from Eula Otis, Garth's wife. Clare & Carl's opened in 1942, where Eula Otis also worked, and shared a version of her secret recipe that they supposedly use to this day.

What the.. ?

The Chupacabra?

La Chusa?

When I was in high school we occasionally went and sat in a remote location "to wait to see La Chusa". Legend had it that if you whistled in a specific sort of way, this ghost-like creature with a woman's head on a bird body would appear. Most people thought it was just an excuse to go sit and drink a few beers away from our parents and the law.

Anyway, I can't say I ever saw it, or anyone for that matter.

Supposedly, tons of people here in south Texas have seen a chupacabra, too, but they're probably just inbred mutant wild coyotes/dogs/hogs/foxes. Most pictures published of them don't prove anything beyond that explanation, anyway.
