This is What Happens When You Let Me Procrastinate

aka, here are a bunch of news articles I've been collecting for the last three weeks or so. My editorials are going to be shorter today, so I can give you a few more articles to read. Unless I find something really interesting, of course. Then I'm going to give you all my thoughts and opinions on it.


Clint Eastwood, the conservative poster boy says that he "doesn't give a fuck if gays marry". I'm sure the Republicans are happy about this one! But good on ya Clint, I'm glad to see there are right wingers out there who just want people to be happy.


Speaking of conservatives/Republicans, you all know I hate Sarah Pailin. However, back in 1987, I probably would have participated in 'Nailin Pailin'....just as former NBA star (and I use that term quite loosely), Glen Rice apparently did. Yes, the source is the National Inquirer, who got a taste of someones Pailin biography, but still. It would be quite hilarious if she actually ended up having a one night stand with him...mostly because this would really damage her standing with the conservative (or as we all know, southern) voting base.


Man Beheads Himself in Virginia. According to the police, he did this over his girlfriend. They said they'd "Never heard of anything like it".


Just in case you're secretly a millionaire (or better yet, a billionaire), I figured I'd let you know that there are five a few Super Bowl Ad spots left! They are 30 seconds long, and 3.5 million dollars each. You're welcome in advance, millionaire! For giving you this info, all I ask is that you put me in your commercial.


It was Pixar's 40th anniversary this year, and they've decided to show you their first 3D model of a hand. Its quite cool to see how far they've gone since then. Seriously, check this out.


We've got two articles about the moon, one about how the moon is going to become a "No Fly Zone" so we can preserve the landing sites for historical purposes (insert argument of "landings were staged, why does it matter?") , and the other is high res photos of some of the moon landing sites (insert more grumbling from conspiracy theorists).


Do you play Facebook/Google/social networking games? Have you ever paid real money, to buy stuff in the games? Would you be surprised if I told you that if that game gets shut down, you don't get your money back? Apparently, some people don't understand this concept. To quote one person:

"You do realize that people paid REAL MONEY for gold items, don't you?...I expect a check in the mail for all of the gold items that I have in the SuperPoke Pets game."

Yes, we DO realize that. Now, do YOU realize that when a service in "the real world" shuts down, you don't get get a refund. This is not a stock market, where you've invested money and become a shareholder. This is a game, where you paid for the "gold" like you would pay for gas, groceries, a TV, whatever. You don't get a refund on that TV when your local Best Buy shuts down, right? I just don't understand how people are this stupid.



There were definitely more articles, but after that story, my brain feels like its going to explode...so I don't think I can handle anymore editorials. Anywho, have a good weekend folks, I await to see what everyone thinks about these stories (and if you're really interested, here is a story about a radio contest to win a russian bride, and a toys-r-us manager who laundered a millions so he could have a prostitute).

  2. I've read about Pailin, she is pretty hardcore. She f*cked around a lot, did a lot of coke and other fun stuff. I wish her all the best. Party on Sarah!

  3. But the landings were fake, so what's the point of conserving the moon? They just don't want people to land there and find out the truth.

    Just kidding, but damn that kind of makes sense lol.

  4. I enjoy Pixar movies, so of course I checked out the link you posted for the 3D hand. It's pretty cool that they came up with that long ago before all this 3D technology!

  10. If I was a billionaire I would buy an ad on Superbowl! I'd be like "Hi I'm a billionaire and I think football is stupid! Enjoy the game you redneck losers!"
    As for the moon! I hope people cononize it and claim it as there own! And I want some one to dig a hole on the moon climb in it bury themselves and be the man IN the moon!

  11. Honestly, if you play Facebook games you're probably mentally impaired.

    Paying money for it means you probably ate paint chips as a kid.

  15. The guy beheaded himself over his girlfriend? Was he standing on a ladder? Hope his head didn't fall into her lap.
    So, Clint doesn't give a fuck if gays marry? Whaddya know? Neither do I.
    Moon's going to be a "No-Fly Zone?" I can just see it now. Astronauts are going to have to take off their shoes and get fondled by the TSA.
