Scientists Discover that Exercise Boosts the Number of Brain Cells





In an article on Yahoo, they disclosed that scientists discovered that exercise boosts the number of brain cells in rats. (I would hate to have been the rat in that one). I was disappointed to learn that it was exercise that boosted brain cell production. I had hoped that they would say, "watching rock-music videos. :( However, I was glad to learn that there is hope for some of our celebrities.;)

Leonid the Magnificent is Back for Season Two on America's Got Talent


That's right...Leonid the Magnificent is back again this season on America's Got Talent. What the viewers probably don't know is that Leonid has come a LONG way since last season. If you check out the following two clips you can see that Leonid has added a bevy of GORGEOUS women to his act. If he can pull off an act like the two in the following two clips, he just may win this season.

I have had a lot of tech problems tonight on YouTube so I had to use another source and it had some bugs...so thanks to those who bore with me through all the multiple clip posts..

Sheriff Says That Paris Hilton's Life Was "Definately in Danger"



In an article over at TMZ, they quoted the sheriff in the Paris Hilton Jail Mess as saying that,"When people are not functioning normally, they're not eating normally, they don't have a sense balance in their lives, God only knows what could happen." Hmm...sounds to me like your normal-everyday CELEBRITY.;)

Sheriff Cites "Suicide Fears" as the Reason for Paris Hilton's Brief Early Release




According to Reuters. The Sheriff, accused of favoritism in the Paris Hilton Jail Debacle, announced an hour after her release that he had, "feared for her life."

Apparently Paris, having to spend so much time with....well, Paris, found the company so annoying that they feared for her safety.

I was so tired of hearing about Paris in Jail that I felt like ending it all, but the sheriff didn't release me from anything...this seems unfair and smacks of preferential treatment.;) I cry FOUL.

I also heard on Access Hollywood, that she has been offered a $1,000,000 contract for one hour of teaching...so her hourly wage for her jail time grows by the day. I can see why they might fear for her life...that kind of money would make me want to end it all ...that's for sure.

The GOP is Finally Wising up About the War in Iraq



In an article from the Washinton Post, Senators Lugar and Voinovich voiced dissatisfaction about the progress of the war. I guess the two politicians didn't have to stand in the corner that day and finally realized that we have been engaged in a war for 4 years that is not to our advantage.
It is about time that the government WOKE UP and realized that the United States can't engineer the governments in every nation in the world...they are too busy doing childish things for that.;) I am glad that they finally realize it. I suppose I will have to stand in the corner now with my mouth taped shut for having a "smart mouth."...sigh School was the only place I have ever been punished for being smart.;)

Immigration Bill Moves Forward in the Senate



In an article from Yahoo! News, the senate revived the immigration bill with a "test vote." The legislation immediately stalled out again when conservatives managed to delay the vote. "They did so by using Senate rules to insist that the entire 373-page package be read aloud, relenting only when Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., agreed to postpone action on the amendments.
I am not saying that the bill should not be delayed, but I do feel that many of the tactics used by our politicians are childish. What is next? A new Senate rule that if someone speaks out, they have to write their name 100 times?
I blame our system of education for ingraining some of these childish practices into the American way of thinking. Some of the "punishments" in school were trivial and childish. The teachers at times seemed more childish than the students. It is time Americans began to act a bit more mature and take politics beyond the kindergarten level. With a nation with so many problems I highly doubt we can afford many of the silly, outdated practices of the past. It is time our politicians acted more like adults.

Paris Hilton was released last night and according to news.com.au, she, "celebrated her first hours of liberty with a delivery of Mexican takeaway food, a pink-frosted cake and a hair appointment."

Hacker Claims He Uncovered the Ending to the Much Anticipated Harry Potter Release, "The Deathly Hallows"



According to the New York Times, "A self-proclaimed hacker says that he broke into the computers of the British publisher of the hugely successful Harry Potter series and discovered the feverishly awaited climax to the coming seventh and final installment. But his disclosures were met with skepticism this week."

Fans and fansites have dismissed the rumor as rubbish and said that the "hacker" spoke in broken English, similar to the writing used by the hundreds everyday that tell me via e-mail that I have won various lotteries and have a huge African inheritance that they need my urgent assistance to collect.;)

So, I am dismissing this as rumor, besides the book is due out so soon I doubt it really matters. I don't want to know the ending until I read the book.;)

Paris HIlton to Give First Release Interview on Larry King Live



In an article in the NY Times, apparently Paris Hilton tried to start a bidding war between the networks for the rights to her release interview. Once word got out that they were paying for the interview it got messy. Then, no one wanted to touch it that had any brains, so she is doing the interview on, "Larry King Live."

"These women just keep coming back because they have no place to go."


Apparently plans are already in the works and I managed to have a hidden camera smuggled into the new project hidden inside an earring disguised as jail apparel.

Bill Clinton to Let His Wife Win Her Own Race



In an article from NY Daily News, former President Clinton declared, "I don't expect to do a lot of this this year and I don't think it's helpful," the former President said, referring to an upcoming campaign trip in Iowa in which he will accompany her. "I want people to get to know Hillary."

I am not sure that the people getting to know Hillary is the BEST strategy either.;)

But I can see Bill's point...to translate....hey, I have been President...been there....done that. I can't say that I can argue with him, I hardly want to be a part of Hilliary Clinton's campaign either.;) Besides what man in America wants to be the first "first man?"
Bill is a cagey one...he comes off as "noble" by letting her in essence run her own race. Plus, when she loses he won't have to shoulder any blame. No wonder that marriage lasted.;) I still haven't forgotten when Bill got elected that Hillary immediately began to "rethink" the role of first lady. I got plenty of this power-hungry little vixen the first go 'round. I have to agree with Bill...he's a slick one that Bill.;)

Paris Hilton's Release Date Officially Set as June 26th




According to an article from ABC News, Paris Hilton's released date has been officially set for June 26th. That means that she has spent approximately 276 hours behind bars (give or take release time for a mysterious-medical condition).

This means, if you believe rumors that Paris and her mom were shopping the rights to the first post-release interview for 1.2 million, she made about $4,700 per hour in jail. Not bad pay for answering fanmail. Add in the $800,000 for the Hard Rock Cafe appearance and it goes to about $7,700 per hour. No wonder she wants to reform.;)

Weddings From the Guy's Perspective



Yesterday's investigation probably left the ladies purring like kittens, but the guys are probably ready to beat me like a read-headed step child.
For those stalwart guys who actually had faith and returned to give this another shot, tonight is their turn. Yes, you are right, tonight I bring to you, "weddings from the guy's perspective."
First off, you have to realign your karma, restore your zen, repair your yin and yang and recover your full masculinity by wiping away some of the dirty taint that some of yesterdays video posts probably left hanging about. So I prepared a video cure for what ails you. Just watch the following video until you feel normal and then proceed with the rest. Let me give you a hint while I am at it. If a woman ever expresses her pride that you, "are getting in touch with your feminine side," she means she has you "whipped." So watch out for that one.
I for one don't have a feminine side. I have never been in touch with my feminine side and don't even want my feminine side to text me on holidays. With that in mind, I have no doubt I will cure the blues left by the debacle created by yesterday's investigation...thanks for keeping the faith.;)

Tonight I Conducted an Investigation Into Weddings...it Turned UGLY


Tonight an article on Yahoo News caught my eye. The title is, "GREEDY COUPLE CASHES IN AFTER THEIR WEDDING SHOWER." In the article, they discuss a letter to "Dear Abby" describing one couple's disgraceful attempt to turn their wedding into a personal fund-raising event.

I was shocked by this article...well not really shocked, I have been pretty much impossible to shock post-kindergarten, but I did think it would make a good blogfest.;)

So I donned my protective clothing and hip boots and headed out to dredge up the truth about weddings and why couples celebrating holy matrimony become literally brain-dead and perform seemingly-insane acts as they prepare to finally have sex sanctioned by the legal and moral codes of their respective cultures, instead of having to sneak around anymore behind thier parents backs.;)

What I found was so disturbing, so unsettling that I must warn you before you proceed. This turned even uglier than my investigation into women singing about their ovaries. You have been WARNED...proceed at your own risk.

Yup, it is true, I am actually going to make you watch Howdy Doody. But on the bright side it will probably be the only time you will see old Howdy on this blog. There is something I find a bit offputting about a puppet that looks like a caricature of a drunken chimp. As if that isn't bad enough, if you went around these days singing, "cowabonga," declaring it as your themesong, and pronouncing it like "cowabunga" people would think you were making a REALLY BAD remake of Brokeback Mountain only about a cowboy and his cow. This blog is all about good taste, so Howdy Doody has to GO. Howdy, you are officially RETIRED.

This goes to show you. The absolute best way to avoid being sued is to not own anything. As my grandmother always said, "you can't get blood out of a turnip.";)

Paris Hilton is Back in Her Cell Again



Paris Hilton had been cooling her heels in the med center, but her "medical condition" has been stabilized and she is back in the slammer. Something tells me we haven't heard the last of Paris goes to jail though.;)

Channel Image- DO NOT WATCH!


This is an interesting video...Why? Because it has 20,000 views, yet it clearly tells everyone "NOT TO WATCH."
Inside each and every person is a little voice that when we see something that tells us not to do something, we want to shake our little fist in defiance and do it ANYWAY. I speculate that that is why this video has almost 20,000 views, not a bad score as YouTube video goes.

My Christine, 1958 Plymouth Belvedere


This is a 1958, but oh well it is close. I think this is what they thought it would look like.;)

Buried Belvedere Lid Removal 2


And here they unearth that sucker...woot.

Tulsa County Buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere


Ha found it on video...check it out. Wow, this website is so high tech. HA I was RIGHT they stuffed the trunk with stuff. Talk about too much junk in your trunk. I deserve the beer from the trunk.;) LOL they think this sucker will be PRISTINE..."they took every precaution." haha

Classic Car Unearthed in a Nuke Proof Time Capsule


In an article on Yahoo! News, via the AP, it was announced that in "Tulsa, Okla. - A concrete vault encasing a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere buried a half-century ago may have been built to withstand a nuclear attack but it couldn't beat back the natural onslaught of moisture. At a Friday ceremony complete with a couple of drum rolls, crews removed a multilayered protective wrapping caked with red mud, revealing a vintage vehicle that was covered in rust and wouldn't crank. "

Oh this truly IS classic. Suppose that there HAD been a nuclear disaster that all life had been erradicated and billions and billions of years from now, some wandering aliens discover the remains of our Styrofoam factory in space and work their way here to our planet. At least domestic cars would be presented TRUTHFULLY...thank god...what a hoot. Don't you bet the crew laughed when they burried that puppy. Bet when they get the trunk open they find some wild stuff the worker hid in there as a prank...hehehehe. The Belvedere was the coolest car of all time...what a great choice.

LOL it gets even better when they discuss the car...."There were a few bright spots, literally: shiny chrome was still visible around the doors and front fender, and workers were able to put air in the tires." Hmm...some tire manufacturer is going to get some UBER advertising out of this...if they are still in business.

Robot Chicken - Noahs Ark


Hmmm...strangely similar to our space program.;) I am going to build my own ark...the Space Station...hehe.

The International Space Station Has Been Getting a Lot of Attention




You will be happy to know that scientists are still working diligently in space to try to extend life beyond our own planet. (see full article here) The space station has been expanded and they are having a good time up there apparently. They are working at an accelerated pace because we have spent so much on the space program over the years that we have let planet earth just go to the dogs. Hopefully, they discover a clean-new planet soon because time is running out.

Since 1961 over 400 people from all over the world have ventured into space, so you can see how efficient it it will be for the billions of residents of planet earth to venture forth to our clean-new planet.

So far, the effort to find a way to extend life beyond our own planet has been fruitless, so has the quest to find a way that the space program has benefited Americans beyond the invention of Styrofoam...but they are still working on it.;) It seems to me they are essentially building a very-expensive ark.

Knut the Polar Bear Cub Raking in Millions at Berlin Zoo



The Berlin Zoo is taking in a fortune as visitors line up to see the first polar bear born at the zoo in 33 years. (full article here) The bear, named "Cute Knut" (of all things, rolls eyes) apparently someone thought it cute when it's father was able to get excited enough in front of all those visitors to actually make "Cute Knut."
Hopefully, Cute Knut is not affected by all the press and attention and does not turn out to be overly-theatrical like the bear in this clipart...sigh.

Asia Brief - Rome Reborn Virtual Model


A huge 3-D model of ancient Rome has been developed that will allow you to experience Rome in the days of its glory. Tourists visiting Rome can go on a virtual tour that depicts Rome as it evolved through the ages...so when in Rome you can do like the Romans did.;)

robot chicken Super-Villain Carpool


Superhero villians are getting a lot of attention this summer with the release of "Spider-Man 3" and "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," So, they are out doing a lot of interviews. They tend not to me paid as much as the good guys, so high-gas prices are forcing many of them to carpool.

Captain Crunch on Family Guy


The Captain fights back about all the negative press. I guess you better not mess with the Cap'n.

LOST to Plan Out the Last 48 Episodes



In an article on E!, the producers of LOST apparently announced plans to actually plan out the plot in advance. Up until now, they must have been winging it as they went along.;) I enjoy the series a lot; therefore, I am glad to learn that there is actually a PLAN and apparently they will now formulate a grand plan. I was actually beginning to wonder after I read that Ben was originally in for a short appearance, but the producers took a liking to the character and decided to work him into a greater role.;)


In fact, I am going through a bit of LOST withdrawal, so I devised a plan. Starting a while back, I started sneaking secret URLs into this site. I know, I know, I am a sneaky bastard. Basically the way it works is this. From time to time over the next six months, I will slip clues into this blog on the order of LOST, except I am not actually winging it. In fact, I have been doing so for a while now. It is no coincidence that a yo-yo happens to crop up twice in some of the graphics. The clues are sublime and understanding the extremely-murky depths of this blog, that already seems demented enough at face value, is probably not a feature everyone will want to partake of for the additional wisdom it will reveal, or the mental-health risks involved. But, for those who enjoy that sort of thing, knock yourself out. In the end I will reveal some truth so staggering that it will permanently alter your view of the universe...or make you so sick that you actually chose to participate that you leave, never to return...who knows? Like I said, if you like a mystery, take the clues for a spin.



Paris Hilton to Host Bash at the Hard Rock Cafe to Celebrate Her Release



I had to up the number of posts on the main page to 10 because I had a bunch of stuff I wanted to run my mouth about tonight.

Tonight on Extra! <---(you may want to check this out...I was hunting the link and it shows a pre-rehab Britney....yuck...) (adds Britney to the list of people who can not have my love child...this is getting to be quite a list...hmm, I had better start an actual list in a post sometime.) Ok, back to the story.

Tonight on Extra I leaned that Paris Hilton is to host a huge bash at the Hard Rock Cafe and Casino in Las Vegas to celebrate her release. (you gotta admit you really can learn stuff here first ;) ) Apparently, she forgot about God once she was offered $800,000 to host this huge drinking and gambling fest...imagine that. I guess a "good role model" hosts drinking events at casinos in the sin capital of the world.

Actually, the Hard Rock Cafe and Casino is a HAPPENING place with awesome food and great music, so if you are ever in Vegas and want a place to hang I highly recommend it...but no one would EVER mistake me for being a good role model so I can recommend without being a total hypocrite.;) In fact, the party in question is probably an awesome party.;)....but that isn't the point.

Captain Crunch is Back!


This video is excellent and the cat doesn't look fat either.;)

Cap'n Crunch and Jean LaFoote - Circus


Here the Captain saves a MULTICURLTURAL GROUP with his amazing cereal. One youth is even wearing GLASSES. :O

Captain Crunch Snow Cones


And here a child prepares a nutritious snack with Captain Crunch...it features LOW FAT MILK...oooooooh...nice.:)

SolidGoldHits - Locking by Captain Crunch and the FunkyBunch


A tribute to The Captain...hmmm...funny thing is, these guys don't look fat.

Cap'n Crunch early 70's cereal commercials


It stays CRUNCHY...even in milk.;)

Junk food ads


To thier credit they do show the "apple" as a real couch potato.;)

Captain Crunch's Ship Under Fire



In an article on CSPI Newsroom, apparently Viacom and Kelloggs, including I assume Captain Crunch, are under fire by parents for the nutritious message they send our tubby-young Americans. In other words, someone is suing Captain Crunch.:(

Apparently, alarmed that a lot of our nation's kids are on the chubby side, parents are looking to blame someone besides the one who actually DOES THE SHOPPING.;) (of course)

What does this mean for America? One of our cultural icons, Captain Crunch is being sued. Yes it is true. The Captain, stalwart of countless years of Saturday morning cartoons is under fire because a lot of our kids can't get off the couch to do more than go to the bathroom and parents need someone to blame.;) I assume that The Captain stuffs all those non-nutritious goodies in mom or dad's shopping cart at the store and keeps the parents from buying fruit and vegetables...the scoundrel.;) Americans have used the TV set as a babysitter for generations and now they apparently expect the poor Captain to be the parent as well...sigh.

Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time


This Video is kind of cool.

The Best Fantasy Book Series of All Time: The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan


The best fantasy book series I have ever read is The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan. I bought a paperback on a whim a few years ago and it sat on my bookshelf for about a year because the first few pages of the prelude kind of put me off the book for a while.

It starts off with a flashback that seemed a bit overdone and without having read the series seemed meaningless and a bit bizarre, so I put it aside for one of those days when I needed to grab something to read in a hurry.

I broke my ribs about a year later and didn't have anything to read and so I picked it up again. I skipped the prelude and started the story. I couldn't put the book down and I continued reading until I finished the ten or so books that existed in the series at the time. There are still books being released from time to time and the series totals more than 12,000 pages and still growing. To learn more you can click here for the Wikipedia rundown...it is truly an amazing read. So if you are looking for something to do this summer (but I have to warn you the series is addicting) this is well worth checking out. It has been around a while so you can pick it up cheap from Amazon.com.

Ozzfest and America's Got Talent...What Do They Have in Common?



Ozzfest is going to be a free concert this year. Over 400,000 tickets were given away for this gala of Heavy Metal organized by Ozzy Osbourne, his wife Sharon and son Jack...probably with the help of some roadies. (someone has to do the real work.);) For the official site, click here. It ought to totally rock and with all those free tickets floating around it ought to be pretty easy to obtain some.

What does Ozzfest have to do with America's Got Talent? Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy's wife, is one of the judges on the show. She has a ton of style, a super-sexy accent, and lends some class to the show.

Both should be entertaining.

Brangelina...Do They Make Countries Cringe?



I have to wonder if when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie apply to another country to adopt yet another baby for their small world exhibit if the country cringes.

On the one hand, they are adopting an orphan...a very noble thing to do. On the other hand, our own country is teeming with unadopted children that reach adulthood without ever finding a family to adopt them. It is as if Brangelina is saying in a way that the child's country is failing them and they, with their noble motives, will whisk the child away to a fairytale-like existence somewhere decent. I find it a bit unsettling when a child is denied their cultural heritage and a bit condescending to the child's country of origin.

The children will undoubtedly be well-provided for as the adopted children of wealthy celebrities, but I can't shake the feeling that there is an underlying publicity motive to their world escapade to "save" children one child at a time. It seems that every time the publicity swirl surrounding America's-cutest couple dies down there is another adoption.

Brangelina to Adopt AGAIN...sigh




According to an article on Fox News, (click the kid to see the article) Brangelina plan to adopt another child. They are not sure where the child will come from but with the word "adopt" in there, I am assuming it won't be coming from them.
The couple who plan to have ten children in all and I for one do not want to be stuck in the same gondola as that pair if the "It's a Small World" <---(you can ride it on-line too) ride breaks down and the lights go out at Walt Disney World Resort. I have a feeling the world would feel really small then.;)
