It can be said that we went through much together. There was that time where we stumbled across that website with the animal porn (really, I was looking for a farm, really I was), or that one where we found all the good gossip from around town. Who could forget the many thoughts and musings that flowed from me through your keyboard and onto the white screen of MS Word.

But alas, it ended quickly for you having succumbed to the most dreaded of all laptop failures: Motherboard. There is no cure and usually no warning. Perhaps the clean room wasn’t so clean that day and a hair got into the circuitry. Or perhaps that day we had an argument and I dropped you from a height of no more then 3 feet. Sure, this is traumatic, not nearly as much as this, however. But traumatic no less.

Thankfully, as a conscientious member of the computing society you have signed your organ donation card and your viable remains will be collected and used to improve the life of others. Your 2GB of RAM will be going to the computer my wife uses. Your hard drive, while a meager 60GB by my regular standards will be cloned and put into an older laptop, doubling its’ capacity.

Let your death serve as a warning to all. Back up your files regularly. For the loss may occur at any time and without warning.

You will be missed. At least until I get a new one.

Ok, I liked Red Dawn. I was of an age that I KNEW it was plausible. I was living in Colorado, I had a plan on where to go into the mountains; you know, just in case.

Now there is Naked Dawnnd

Starring Rob Schneider as a member of a nudist colony, who is forced to defend his freedom against the Russians, played by Mena Suvari (American Beauty) and Vinnie Jones (X-Men 3).

 

 

 

"Naked Dawn" Trailer can be seen here. And yes, there is plenty of ass shots, but the Black Bar Generator is in full force for the more compromising "General Areas".

I highly suggest reading more about Gabe Leeden. He has some amazing insight into the world of the military as it exists today. Here is some reading material to supplement the Fred Show interview:

A Firsthand Look at the Real Guantanamo

Let’s face it, we watch Mythbusters for only one reason. And for those of you who think it’s for explosions, well that’s just sad.

But the #2 reason we watch is for the explosions. Come on who could forget the exploding hot water heater? That was unicorns and rainbows awesome. That of course was before this week:

A big explosion, in the name of science, scared a lot of people in a small town.

The explosion was so big it shook the town of Esparto, knocking Stephens off her couch and breaking her front window.

"Course all the neighbors ran out into the street. We didn’t know what was going on," said Paul Williams, who heard the explosion.

Some people said they thought it was a plane crash, others, a house explosion.

The smoke and dust rose from the site about a mile from town.

They were trying to literally "knock the socks off" a mannequin by igniting 500 pounds of ammonium nitrate. But the explosion was a lot bigger than they expected.

Mythbusters told KCRA 3 they replaced a handful of broken windows.

I am so sending them my resume.

Of course the peace loving, pacifists of the Peoples Republic of Korea only want the very best for America and would NEVER do anything to provoke hostilities.

On Martian Luther King day 2009 several pieces of pro-Obama art was given to the US Ambassador to South Korea. Included in that gift was this drawing which really sums up the opinion of our enemies.
