Family Radio Worldwide is an FM station with a large presence near my house. I saw their van earlier today, and I couldn’t resist pulling a U-turn, getting out of my car, and snapping a picture . It proclaims that Judgment Day (yes, that one) will be May, 2011. Didn’t they read their Mayan calendar and come up with 12/12/2012? Have they been remiss in their prophecies? Check out their logic behind WHY Judgment Day will be here soon:
So, you’re driving along, and you get a text from your significant other. CLEARLY, they want you to drop everything you’re doing, take one hand off the sensitive control of that 1 ton vehicle traveling at say, 50mph, and answer their concern immediately. “Hey babe, whut up? Whut r u wearing?” is just more important than paying attention to the ~230 kJ kinetic projectile you’re currently at the helm of.
Sounds pretty good, right? WRONG.
Now, you can attach a full iPad to your steering wheel! No more dicking with your iPhone while dicking with your dick with your other hand! Now you can safely, and EASILY do stupid shit like read the news while driving! Here are some quotes from satisfied customers who don’t sound made-up at all!
“I don’t think that I am exaggerating when I say that the iPad Steering Wheel Mount probably has saved my life. Before I bought the mount, I was always trying to text and read E-Mail on my Blackberry while driving on my daily commute in Seattle.” – Steve Holland
“Often people fall asleep in the middle of a clear and dry day with no traffic and crash while driving on I-57 because it is so boring and because the speed limit is only 65 miles per hour. I have found that using cruise control and playing BeJeweled on my iPad mounted on the steering wheel keeps me awake and alert without distracting too much from driving.” – Sam Dinsdale
Go out and buy one today, so you do this to a mother and her two children! And when your airbag deploys, you can KEEP READING because it’ll shove the iPad into your FACE. Ain’t safety GREAT?
So, there’s this Argentinian politician who just proposed an anti-plagiarism law, which he apparently thinks is an anti-copyright infringement law. We know this because he suggests that plagiarism is hurting the recording industry. Okay, so clearly he’s involved with the Argentinian RIAA equivalent, and neither he nor they know what the difference is. Great, that’s pretty stupid already, even without getting into the whole RIAA/copyright debate.
To increase the stupid, he used Wikipedia to help write his proposed law. That’s pretty scary. A federal-level law, well, a law period, being based on Wikipedia. Most high schools don’t let you use Wikipedia as a serious source, much less colleges and governmental institutions.
But here’s the real kicker. Not only did he use Wikipedia as his source, he apparently stole 3 paragraphs straight up from Wikipedia. Verbatim. In other words, he plagiarized the Wikipedia article on plagiarism for his anti-plagiarism bill. Sweet.
I am speechless, but my drill sergeants warned us about this way back in 2001. We’re the video game generation they said. Nobody gets and exercise anymore they said…
“Is chow allowed in the barracks private Pyle?”
“Sir, No Sir!”
“Are you allowed to eat Jelly Donuts private Pyle?”
“Sir, No Sir!”
“Any why not?”
“Sir… because I’m too heavy, Sir!”
“Because you are a DISGUSTING FATBODY private Pyle!”
Rising rates of obesity among young Americans could pose a risk to the future of the military, two retired generals are warning.
John Shalikashvili and Hugh Shelton, both former chairmen of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote in the Washington Post: “Obesity rates threaten the overall health of America and the future strength of our military.
“We consider this problem so serious from a national security perspective that we have joined more than 130 other retired generals, admirals and senior military leaders in calling on Congress to pass new child nutrition legislation.”
They say more than a quarter of American youth are now too fat to fight and that weight is ruling out more potential recruits than any other medical factor.
RF Moeller is a diamond dealer. Some fellow made an ad for them. Probably not the best idea ever… but it is an interesting study on how most things are done on Facebook these days. Most of the story has unfolded there, apparently, with apologies and so forth from both Moeller, and the admaker.

Everyone loves “Discovery Health” right? Sure, if you’re the type who likes to discover that you are eight months pregnant. The soup handled the show appropriately:
Well, good riddance “Discovery Health” and hello “OWN TV.” In January of 2011 “The Oprah Winfrey Network” will debut, emerging from the carcass of “Discovery Health.” I know…you can’t wait that fucking long! Well, here’s a taste of what Oprah will be lovingly spoon feeding you.
OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network will be a 24/7 cable network devoted to self-discovery, to connecting you to your best self and to the world.
That’s right. 24/7. All day and all night. Whenever you want. TV designed to bring more better into your life.
Except…my whole life is going to revolve around watching OWN 24/7! What better avenue to self-discovery than watching Dr. Oz tell me how to get healthy and then, instead of going outside, watching Dr. Phil tell me how to feel better about myself. Connect to the world!
