So I found out today on some crap morning show that some loon has put together a theater type play that stars robots. Like robot actors with humans interacting and stuff. I guess maybe that's sort of coolio. I wonder how many understudys they have lined up considering that (knowing robots) like every night someone's head is getting yanked off and thrown out into the audience. Followed by a cymbal crash...
Here's this for that.
So last night I was flipping channels and I saw some show about the most expensive car in the world. You'd think it'd be one of those Lamboogerini Vepor or whatever they're called. Or perhaps a Ferrari Frucko 8. But nay. It's an Audi. It's super expensive because it's all historical and stuff. Hitler like drove it around to pick up chicks and I think the first name for it was the Hitler Mobile. Then they changed it to something else more boringer.
Anyway, here's maybe the most spensive car ever built....
Sorry no daily factizoid yesterday but I learnt via one of those pointless weird google total tangent procrasti-distractions where I just HAD had to know the answer for no reason at all-- that Tom Petty has never had a #1 hit song. Weird. Figured that one with the Alice in Wonderland cake one or maybe the Refugee or whatever would be #1 but nay...
We got somethin' We both know it We don't talk too much about it...
Today I found out that the Air Force is counting on robotic bugs to like save the world or whatever. Just like in the movies these little robot bugs with wings can like fly in a room and take pictures or audio and then fly back home. I guess that's sort of coolio. As long as they don't make them too small because I don't want no bug flying all up in my ear and flying around in my brain telling me to like punch old lady's face or bring a stray bag of garbage home and dump it in my fridge or something...
I couldn't find any of those microbot videos but this dude knows how to fly one of those remote control planes...
So last night I decided that I would actually make a better car company CEO than any of those three dopes that were sitting there like bratty dicks infront of Senate jerks. I still don't understand why the oil companies are untouchable in all that. We got a government that can pass laws! For the next year all oil profits go to the oil companies to build only hybrid cars. Oil companies will survive somehow. And boom done problem solved. WTF. It can't be that complicated to do crazy hybrid business stuff! And while we're at it pass a law forcing all the CEO's to take the bus to work or else the go to jail. Plus they get paid only if they make a profit. I wanna be general of the senate or something!
Maybe you should have signed this, douche...
So tonight I was watching some show that was like these geeks testing stuff out or something and this one dude had an invention that like stopped table saw fans from spinning if they come in contact with a finger. Dudes said that like 10 fingers a day are chopped off in table saw screwups and he wanted to prevent that. So how do you have a saw blade that can slice through wood know when a finger touches it? And how does it stop in a split second?
Sorry no factizoid yesterday. I was running around doing stuff and didn't get to see much on the TV. But I'll watch lots of TV today and try to come back with something extra coolio!
Here's a lucky penguin!
So newsjerk told me last night that astronauts are gonna go all golden showers up in space peeing on each other or something to stay hydrated. Like they're just gonna float around peeing in each others faces and stuff. Just seems maybe unsafe or something because if they're up there whizzing around all willy nilly because it can get into the electronics or make a bad first impression on aliens. They might think we're all like primitive and sexually deviant or something...
Wanna lose 2 minutes and 43 seconds?
Today I was told that the 'nation' is now obsessed with the kind of dog Obama picks for the White House. The daughter is allergic. He wants a mutt. Everyone is throwing out breed names. He can't get a poodle. He can't get a little dog. He should adopt from the pound. Personally, (well maybe not me personally but someone who lives here) thinks they should get a Wheaten terrier...
If you wanna lookit Presidential dogs over the years they're all here.
So I found out on the tv last night that some people think the earth might be hollow inside. Not like magma or whatever but just some like inner secret sun or something. Although there is no evidence of this and the people who believe this are most likely crazy with fantasies of rock creatures having wrestling matches in giant arenas with lava pits... you never know.
Here's the history of the hollow earth theory...
Last night I watched the best show on television right now (although last night was a down episode) Celebrity Rehab 2. I dig watching the show (although I'm pretty suspect of a show that shoves cameras in the faces of celebritites while they try to get off drugs or whatever because there could be attention withdrawl and then it's back to the drugs and all that I think...) But Steven Adler former drummer for Guns and Roses is really coming off like a nice clowny guy...
Weird that this was like 20 years ago... especially for him I'm sure.
Sorry no daily factoid yesterday. I spent alot of time staring at Sarah Palin and trying to analyse her unique brand of mental. I think there's three factors at play as to why she can't figure out that she needs to go away. 1. She can't stand the idea of sitting in an office up in the great state of Alaska talking about pavement and logging. 2. She overdosed on attention and is going through very difficult withdrawals. And 3. She keeps trying to improve her image and fails and she's a determined person so she's just trying to turn it around and spiralling.
Or is there a 4.?
Today the news told me that the lander on "Mars" (aka Arizona desert shot through a red lens) has fallen silent and is all broken and stuff. It reported back that there may or may not be water. May or may not be microbes. May or may not be aliens. And may or may not be science-y stuff. I dunno. These probe robots are no fun unless you're really in the scene. When NASA decides to start launching people into space let me know. At least put some weapons on our robots!
Here's a NASA astronaut recruitment video...
Tonight I watched some show called Secrets of the Deep or something. And they talked about how there's this thing called a 'toothfish' which lives in the ice cold waters down yonder south arctic or wherever. It's not the best looking fish in the world but it makes up for it with creepiness. The cool thing is it has anti-freeze in its veins... or whatever fish have. Do fish have veins?
Here's some toothfishy facts.
Today I found out from morning news gossip airhead that Justin AND Britney passed by each other and said hello! They were both doing songs at Madonna's concert (separately) and apparently they were nice to each other. No confirmed word from either camp whether they plan to appear on stage together any time soon. Ummm yawn... TV News is getting boring again super fast! We need something new! Aliens where are you already!? Our media needs you desperately!!
For better or worse this chick still knows how to create a happening...
Found out that there's like a growing problem with gang activity in the military. Not only is it weird to have gang members like overseas hanging out but still in gangs. But apparently when they get home they really know how to fight on the streets like better than cops. With military style precision and all that. Sort of scary. Maybe being actively involved with a gang should be something to screen for or something? I dunno. Maybe it's just good to have good fighters?Anyway, here's an Iraqi 6th grader going about his day...
Sorry no daily factnoid yesterday. I blame only myself as I only have myself to blame. And I'm not gonna play the non-blame game with myself.
But if you're bored and wanna play something crazy addictive. This here kept me going for like 20 levels.
Today one of those TV business dopes told me that Yahoo is now interested again in selling out to Microsoft after telling them to screw off last year. Google was poking around at them and Yahoo told them to screw off too. And just yesterday on the radio I heard a Yahoo ad with the Yahoooooo yodel. Partying like it was 1998. Not sure why Yahoo insists on pretending they have some clout. When people say, 'I never google on Yahoo...' you know something has gone way wrong...
Here's like all sorts of internet history stuff...
So today some local news person brought on some doctor jerk who told me how to cope with my feelings post-election. And how to handle my interactions with other people. Like if I bump into someone who was really into the otherside then I shouldn't be all ha-ha in your face or whatever or FU I hate you and your candidate. That it's important to be a gracefull winner or loser whatever. He also said that I can expect to feel let-down no matter what. Because there was this whole emotional buildup and stuff and now my brain has no place to put that excitement. And I should adjust to being more 'bored with politics'...
Was this one really a heartbeat away from being President...? it already seems like a dream... (cough)
While watching the election results I flipped by MTV and saw they were running Paris Hilton's new TV show. My New BFF or something. I was like, 'Really MTV?! Have you lost the way that much that you couldn't pull together an election results show?! It used to be about the music, man!! And umm... then it was about the politics, man!! Now it's about the Hilton BFF on November 4th... At long last, have you no sense of decency?
You can watch full episodes here if you want some self-brain punishment.
Today I found out that girl hands are grosser than guy hands bacteria-wise. Dude on Fox 5 News told me that men's hands are more acidic (whatever that means) which kills more bacteria and that women apply more moisturizers and crap which I guess makes more bacteria. But he said for the most part all that bacteria is harmless whatever... and then he paused and said, "Girls got cooties!!!" Then the broke for a commercial.
Here's the truth about all that...
So news morning jerk told me that NYC is fighting rats online. There's some website (which sucks I checked it out) which gives people access to rat information and you can look at rat maps and stuff like that. Sounds coolio but it's not. It's all boring and stuff. (I still don't understand why the rats can't take over...) Anyway here's the NYC Rat site.
Wanna see a bad name for a restaurant?
