I think someone needs to make a hard sci-fi movies with dolphins as the main character. Not the Douglas Adams type of 'So Long And Thanks For All The Fish' type of mammals. I mean mean and malevolent...
I have Revenge Of The Sith on, pretty loud, and it still seems more than a bit quiet. I guess spending the better part of a decade listening to my dog do his choo-choo impression among other sound effects got me conditioned to it. Feels weird without the howling. Anyways, I'm sure he's having fun at the 'spa' lol
I don't have time to research it but I'd be willing to bet some money that somewhere out there is some academic research correlating media bias with the photographs news outlets run with their stories.
Roscoe has absolutely no clue but he's going to get an all expenses paid vacation at his favorite spa resort. It's been a long time since he's spent any time up there so it'll be interesting to see what sort of accommodation he reaches with Señorita Bootsita. I can totally see it being a painful process for him but that's okay. After all, those are the best kinds of lessons. And don't let the picture fool you for a second. She's four pounds of pure sweetness... Until you push her button(s) and then she's all enter the dragon. I just hope he remembers that
I just saw Hostess Cupcakes is going out of business. Honestly, I'm more of a Little Debbie type of guy so it doesn't really affect me directly... The thing it does bring to mind is Woody Harrelson's character in Zombieland and all the shenanigans he went through for one. That guy was pretty hardcore and I bet there are a ton of folks out there in real life who are making lunch runs to the grocery store so they can stock up.
Saw this BIG pickup truck driving in to work this morning and there was a chocolate lab riding in the back. The guy looked happy with the wind blowing his big old floppy ears back. Seriously, that's a good thing to see...always good to start the day on a high note like that
1) Only in America, could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.
2) Only in America, could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black.
3) Only in America, could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
4) Only in America, can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.
5) Only in America, would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens.
6) Only in America, could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as "extremists."
7) Only in America, could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.
8) Only in America, could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).
9) Only in America, could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year - for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn't have nearly enough money.
10) Only in America, could the rich people - who pay 86% of all income taxes - be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all.
I've decided that sharing a cellphone requires a certain level of tolerance for nastiness. I can't help wondering how I've managed to avoid repetitive ear infections and/or ear zits considering the way the damn thing sticks to the side of my face from all the oil.
