Yahoo! News - Ricin Attacks May End Writing to Congress

oh great - now they have an excuse for ignoring our will...

Yahoo! News - Woman sues over Janet Jackon's breast

from the article:
A Tennessee woman has filed a class action suit against Janet Jackson and others involved in her breast-baring Super Bowl halftime show, saying millions of people are owed monetary damages for exposure to lewd conduct.

the irony here is many spend good money to be exposed to lewd conduct.

yeti batting a penguin

this is not funny. this is not funny at all. it is clearly the work of sick minds. anyone who thinks this is funny is a twisted and cruel individual. get help. all of you. cruelty to animals is no joke. peta should be informed.

(anyone beat 297.1?)

from Amelie - although i may have seen this on other sites - her link to this was the first i'd actually visited

new link: DanMerk{dot}com : v4

ladies and gentlemen, meet dan merk. i worked with dan in a previous life and i can say he is one of the most unique individuals i have ever met. i know, it is incorrect to say "most unique", one is either unique or not, and we are all like snowflakes - no two exactly alike. still, dan is a bit uniquer than most. his snowflake, instead of being six sided, would be a dodecahedron. and if you know anything about me, you realize this is a heavy compliment.

so meet, graphic designer, photographer, artist, vegetarian chef, brewer, video gamer, and all around good guy...dan merk

ETonline.com Music: Britney Breaks Her Silence

from the article:

don't know why my mind works this way; it's a gift.

driving home i noticed a sign that shows the date, time and temperature. i noticed the date was 02/03/04, and i wondered how often this happens. i have my answer. anyone want to take a stab?

post edited for clarity

the question is, how often are the month, day and year any consecutive numbers - not necessarily just 02/03/04?

one thing i like about my tai chi teacher is that he always refers to us as "playing" tai chi. i am not sure if that is just his style or if it is standard, but it seems to fit in well with the philosophy. i think putting it that way is cool...

i think this is a big reason i love teaching compared with past careers. to quote santa's elves:
we work hard all day,
but our work is play.

the latest reason to love karen from Pulp Friction

her post regarding the superbowl halftime states:
Speaking of the Super Bowl, MTV produced the half-time show, with thuggertainers like Nelly singing, "Hot in Here," with lyrics including: "I was like, good gracious, a** bodacious Flirtatious, tryin' to show faces Lookin for the right time to shoot my seed (you know)"

Then Justin Timberlake exposed Janet Jackson's t**.

CBS could show all that, but couldn't air the MoveOn.org ad about Bush or the PETA ad because they don't like to air controversial messages.

I'd rather have seen the banned ads than watch Nelly fondling his d*** while singing about seed shooting. CBS: bite me.

uh, couldn't put it better myself, so i ain't even gonna try...

info about how you can hear norah jones new album, starting tomorrow!

jen had the idea of starting up an olympic blog and knowing i am a big olympic fan, invited me. i've been hooked as a kid - remember running around the house pretending to be jean claude killy, long jumping in the front yard, trying to throw a frisbee like a discuss. anyhow, i digress. here is where you can read the fruit of our efforts: Olympic Fever
