I didn’t have reception when I took this picture. With AT&T’s Service. With their iPhone 4. That they were advertising. At this store.


Cadbury Egg Destruction Videos Day (Rube Goldberg/Mousetrap Massacre)

March 24, 2009 3 comments

In honor of the upcoming Easter holiday, and in honor of one of my wife’s favorite candies, I now present two incredible (edible) videos.  The first is a slow motion mousetrap Cadbury Egg massacre.  The second is an incredible Rube Goldberg experiment.  8000 steps to destroy a Cadbury Egg.  VERY cool.  Enjoy, these are delicious treats for your eyes.

Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Barack Obama: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a CHANGE! The chicken wanted CHANGE!

John McCain: My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

Dr. Phil: The problem we have here is that this chicken won’t realize that he must first deal with the problem on “THIS” side of the road before it goes after the problem on the “OTHER” side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he’s acting by not taking on his CURRENT problems before adding NEW problems.

George W. Bush: We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

Dr. Seuss: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed, I’ve not been told.

Bill Gates: I have just released eChicken 2008 which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken. This new platform is much more stable and will never ever cra…&$%#@…reboot.

John Lennon: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.

Al Gore: I invented the chicken!

Colonel Sanders: Did I miss one?

Dick Cheney: Where’s my gun?

Grandpa: In my day, we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.

Defense mechanism???

August 7, 2008 Leave a comment

Wasps have venom as a defense mechanism. I would like to suggest it’s more of an offensive mechanism. While mowing tonight I scared up a nest of yellow jackets. I didn’t see them and bam, bam! I thought I had thrown little pieces of sticks into my left shin at about 300 mph. I looked down, saw wasps, and ran. Then yelled at my neighbors for some wasp spray. I got my weapon, and found the nest, and took care of the problem. Their defensive mechanism just made me mad and come back and kill them. They should’ve left me alone. My leg still burns though. I’m sure they are laughing in their little waspy graves.

Finally, Science Has Given Us Something Wonderful!

Sooooo, Lael, myself, and our two children were at Walmart tonight, feeding the giant maw of corporate America with our hard earned cash, and I saw a wonderful invention that I had to own. An automatic tummy rubber? No. A shoe slicer? Nope, not even close. A horse de-icer? Only in my dreams! No, it was a single serving mocha latte in a SELF-HEATING container! Finally, those million dollar grants to the International Consortium of Single Serving Beverage Purveyors have paid off!

In the morning I will take my $2.00 (I know…I know…it was my splurge item) mug of coffee, flip it over, take off the tamper resistant foil cover, press a small button for 10 seconds releasing green water into a package of quicklime, flip said mug back over, place on a heat proof surface, wait 5-8 minutes until a red spot on the mug turns white showing that the beverage is at optimum temperature, shake well, turn the cover 90 degrees, pop open the tab, and enjoy my hot mocha latte! Talk about convenient!

[UPDATE:  It worked!  It wasn’t mouth skin melting hot like our coffee maker, but it tasted good, and was ready in about 5 minutes.  I got it “brewing”, did some stuff, came back, and the spot was white, and it was good to go, for 2 bucks, it’s a little expensive, but for camping, long drives, quick fixes, etc., it’s MUCH cheaper than Starbucks, and cleaner and faster than brewing your own]

Will someone PLEASE explain the point of this ad to me? Lael and I went out to dinner last night, thanks to Aunt Jessica watching the chitlins, and bought her a Cinnabon in payment. Yes, we’re cheap. We had to walk through Macy’s to get to the little store with a halo above the sign and angels perpetually singing (my wife, I think this is how she views Cinnabon). I took it on my phone, and can’t figure out how to rotate it, so I apologize for any sore necks. I think this is a very odd photo. Perhaps not thrown to a focus group, or the focus group decided to play a trick on the ad agency. “Oh yeah, that’s great, we understand the message perfectly! And there is nothing odd about that picture. Giant crotches on ads that make no sense are awesome!”

Maybe it was because my judgment was impaired after eating most of a giant 14oz hickory smoked sirloin at a new restaurant called Texas Land and Cattle. It was delicious. It wasn’t grilled, so it was the consistency of a prime rib. Here is a picture. I’d recommend the restaurant to anyone!

Hilarious Story About a Guy Roping a Deer

I don’t know that this is absolutely true, but it made me laugh.  Best story I’ve heard in awhile.  Thanks Matt!
