This copter can reach an altitude of 1000 meters (3500 feet) and travel at 60 MPH for 30 minutes (range 30 miles). It only costs $30,000. Definately possible it'll end up on my Buy Me That list.
Hydrophobic sand is so cool.
Eighth Circuit Appeals Court ruling says police may seize cash from motorists even in the absence of any evidence that a crime has been committed.
Looks like one of the original S.S. Minnows from Gilligan's Island (there were 4 Minnows) is up for sale for $100K. Sounds like a bargain...
Yep...today I am no longer invincible. And wouldn't you know it...the world is going to end in 2 weeks. Here is a link of excuses the guy will use when the nuclear war doesn't start.
Yeah, yeah...I am old today. Fuck off.
A girl saw a written reference to Barney's penis in graffiti and now her father thinks she is ruined for life.
"Since then, she has not stopped mentioning Barney’s p***s. This has shaken the bedrock of our family. I made an emergency call to our church’s pastor about this bombshell in my daughter’s life and he is unsure how it will affect her future."
I have heard the audio from this a bunch of times but I FINALLY found the video. She doesn't appear to get hurt but she sure does make a funny sound.
That wacky, influential Christian Taliban is at it again. Apparently, Evolutionary Biology was dropped from the list of majors that low income college students could declare and still qualify for federal grants. Although it was claimed that it was a clerical error...it still hasn't been fixed. Wonder if it won't get re-added until sometime in mid-September when most college deadlines for declaring majors have passed...
Scientists are cloning cows to make better steak. I think it would be a great thing if they were able to just grow the meat without the cow. That way the animal lovers wouldn't have anything to complain about...well...except the fact that cows and chickens and pigs would go extinct.
Better late than never...Here are the pics from OB, Spin and Kristen's birthday.
Also here are some from me and Sierra's First Anniversary in NYC(back on August 13th).
Also here are some pics from the final concert of the summer...Toby Keith.
And finally here are some pics from Whiskey Tango in the Eric and Sierra main album.
The video below is actually pretty dumb. It is a video of the arrest of some guy who probably threatened to kill someone at a bar the night before (he is charged with "Threat to commit a crime"...which itself begs the question if I were to threaten to threaten to kill someone, would I be in violation?).
What makes this blog-worthy is the fact that a cease and desist order was obtained by the MA State Police to stop the video from being spread over the net (they also threatened websites for just LINKING to the original). As far as I can tell, the police in the video were polite and professional so they should be proud of this footage. But apparently they have something to hide. I guess the only people allowed to video tape cops would be the cameramen from "COPS."
And now is your day's dose of gross. I give you 6 horrifiying parasites.
WoW just got a whole new meaning.
Most of the police I have met are good guys looking to help protect us. A few of them are just bullies. This video is an example of the few cops that give the good ones a bad name. Curtesy of PoliceAbuse.org
I actually believe that everyone should be forced to vote. Not through fines but through tax incentives. Here's how:
1. Raise local, state, and federal taxes by 1% across the board.
2. When you vote, you get some sort of form or certificate in the mail that certifies that you voted.
3. Include that form with your tax forms.
4. BAM. 1% tax write off for your local, state and federal taxes.
You still don't have to vote but it would pay off in the end. Steve Colbert disagrees...
These German girls were emailing each other at work about how shitty their boyfriends were in bed. But one of them accidentally forwarded the thread to everyone in the office...which was then forwarded to thousands of other people. Sucks to be those guys.
This German study shows that women's sex drive shows a stark decline 4 years into a relationship.
They are either quacks or geniuses(genii?). Wanna know how to tell? If they alluva sudden get bought by a big oil company, get character assassinated (one of them somehow gets caught with child porn), or get physically assassinated, then the technology was real.
This includes the only video clip of Robin Ventura you will ever see on the Internet.
Turns out some people think bandwidth stealing is their right. For example, the email below is from a guy threatening to sue someone for taking down pictures from their own website because he was linking to them.
I found this article about how the cops over in PA get bonuses for writing tickets. Here is an excerpt:
Pennsylvania State Police documents show that not only is there a system of monetary reward and punishment for state troopers based upon numeric ticket goals, there is a clear effort to prevent anyone from ever speaking about it. The first rule of a ticket quota is: there is no ticket quota.
Watch this girl doing a magic trick with a scarf. If you are a guy, your face will be similar to Peter Griffin's when he began watching the marital help videos.
Viva la cowards!
Yet another perfect example of Random Wacky Shit. I give you SBmail.
A mountain in China looks like a pair of breasts.
The mountain, located 12km north of Zhenfeng town in the Guizhou province, is known locally as dual breast mountain.
The mountain is used as a place of worship by the community.
Locals come to the foot of the mountain during weddings believing it will bring them goodness and fortune.
This is a link to someone who found a yahoo thread debating atheism. In it someone quotes the bible where it contradicts geometry by saying Pi is exactly 3. Well one of the fundies couldn't resist.
This post is dedicated to Dr. Carlos Rios. Here is a link to the original thread.
Ants with big butts are a delicacy in Columbia.
Sierra is excited about the return of King Tut to the US so I found this video. Apparently, Egyptians weren't very happy with it.
The only Russian with a Scottish accent has FINALLY shown up at the beach that he promised to his crew (you know...after the missile drills).
The guy living in the house picked up his roomate's sword and started slashing. The burglars were treated for severed fingers and lacerations.
An oldie but goodie

No wonder all the Koreans love Bailey. It's because he tastes so good!
Here's the list of the 10 most harmful books of the last 2 centuries according to The National Conservative Weekly. Yeah, that Feminine Mystique was one DANGEROUS book. I bet that even with the inclusion of the Communist Manifesto(which was abused by the commies) AND Mein Kampf on the list, more people were killed because of two other books noticably missing from the list: The Bible and the Koran.
Ghostbusting merit badge is just silly.
It's a good thing that I, Frances Iosue, don't work in Philadelphia. Otherwise, they might harass me for posting a link to this story of a UPenn student who was arrested for using his cell phone to photograph the police for arresting a drug dealer.
Doesn't sound like a bid deal. It happens all the time with shareware after the trial is over (the trial period is the contracted time for the free software to work). The only difference here is that the software was controlling an automated garage and as a result, many, many cars were locked in place until the city paid up. Bully for software developers!
Do I even need to explain? Just go to the site.

This is for all those bastards that are lucky enough to fly for $39 to the "Boston area". It explains how to "hack" your boarding pass so that you can get A status no matter when you check in.
Well El Mariachi, the German guy who was using my Hail to the Chimp photo, has finally realized that I changed the pic on his website. He now has a photo of GW next to Hail to the Chimp that was hosted on another site (so they can deal with his bandwidth).
The one he thought was on his website
The one I put on his website.
Here is a link to the original story.
Pastor Bob Snowdon, of Holy Christ Almighty Lutheran Church in Nashua, is a man of deep religious and moral convictions. He derives great satisfaction from his various parish duties—reciting the liturgy, giving holy communion, and performing the sacrament of baptism. But nothing delights him quite like his favorite activity of all: fucking Emily Snowdon, his holy-wedded wife of 19 years.
Michael, Michael...Back during the Family Ties days, I wanted to *BE* you. Now look at what you do for money...shameless.
Apparently it was well known that the world's only handsome red-head had done a few test shots as Marty McFly. Well here's a site that shows that there were a LOT more than a few test shots.
This is what you get when you cross Quenton Terrentino's epic, overrated movie with political sound-alikes...hilarity
Back in the old days, we said ROFL to denote humor and laughter in a chat situation. But then came the people that said LOL and it all went downhill from there. Well now there is the ROFLCopter that is here to help put and end to the LOLLERskaters and LMAOplanes. LEET speekers beware!
(this is a humorously entertaining game)
Apparently "Ed" was allowed access to Ground Zero before any other photographers were. Here are the results:
To quote Darryl Worley:
They took all the footage off my T.V.
Said it's too disturbing for you and me
It'll just breed anger that's what the experts say
If it was up to me I'd show it every day
This poor kid (and probably many like him) are just spouting off what was told to them over and over again by Muslim Extremists. It is eerily similar to Catholic Catechism "facts" we had to memorize before confirmation: Q - What did God create? A - God created Heaven and Earth and all the creatures that dwell in them.
Picture this outlandish situation: You're in the airport and the flight is delayed (I know...unfathomable with US Airways), so you have nothing to do. Why don't you just fire up your laptop and play games? Because it will drain your 3 hour battery? Well...here is a growing list of power outlets in various airports for you to plug into on your next layover to charge your batteries.
This Ebay seller should remember that when you take a picture of something, you are selling the ENTIRE photo.
