- "The NBA"
Good god am I glad it's back. Even though it's just the preseason. Basketball is by far the best spectator sport and I look forward to more clips like this one of Shannon Brown booming on
Afro Samuraiaka Mikki Moore. Via TBL.
- "Ego" I came across a story on CNN today about a Saudi guy who got in a little trouble for getting on TV and bragging about how much ass he gets. And by "a little trouble", I mean 5 years in Saudi prison and 1,000 lashes (!!!!!!!!). Yo, okay, see our jails are rough here and I can only imagine Saudi jails are even worse, but 1,000 lashes!? Can we break that up somehow, like a lash payment plan? Is this dude getting all 1,000 at once? I'd take a couple more years in the clink to get those taken off the table. Slaves probably went whole lifetimes without that many whuppins.
- "Google" Go to Google right now and put in "When" or "If". Then, just sit back and enjoy the fuckery Google suggests you search for. HuffPost collected some of the best Google fails. My favorite? "Do midgets have night vision?"
Since I'm on the topic. Some guaranteed laughs in this video. And I have to link to the #1 clip, the Nigga Teacher. Pure gold, even though you've probably seen it already.
- "City Council" They actually did something smart today. There's been a new law passed forbidding anti-abortion demonstrators from coming within 8 feet of people coming in and out of medical facilities. While I don't agree with pro-lifers demand to govern women's bodies, I understand the sensitivity of the issue and respect their right to protest. What I don't understand is why they are angry about not being able to run up on people and berate them for working in "homicide factories". 8 feet is not a restraining order for Christ's sakes. It's personal space. Looks like to me like the Chicago City Council is trying to do pro-lifers a favor and prevent them for getting beat the hell up by a 6'4" male nurse who just worked a 10-hour shift.
