Back in March of last year a made a post in which I stated that one Euro is worth $3 (USD). Now one Euro is worth $1.22. Europe is having a lot of debt issues as of late, so I expect the exchange rate to get closer in the next couple of months.
A Super Bowl held in any high possibility cold weather venue is a horrible idea. The championship is should always be played in the most neutral and element free place possible to ensure that the best team truly wins and no team can blame a loss on something that is uncontrollable. But when it comes to the regular season, that’s a different story.
WifeGeeding went back to the doctor yesterday and her blood pressure is better but still high, so she’s still on bedrest and we may induce come this Tuesday. But there’s a 10% chance she could go into labor this week.
LOST talk: One of my friends had the great idea that a series of books on the adventures of Hurley and Ben should be published.
More LOST talk: If you are in Hawaii and want to take a tour of the filming locations, it will cost ya about $140. I would be all over this.
The oil leak in the Gulf really frustrates me, it’s been leaking for over a month. As I said before, the focus should have been on plugging it up rather than trying to capture it.
Letterman had some professor from LSU on about the oil leak the other night, and he said if left untouched, it would continue to leak at that rate for about a lifetime, so I guess that’s like 70 years.
I’m not happy with how BP has mislead the public, especially at the beginning with all their underestimatation (yes, I know that’s not a word, but sometimes it’s fun to make up words, ya know). Their low estimates caused feet to drag. It all kind of reminds me of troops in Vietnam reporting false numbers to make things look better than they appeared.
Part of me thinks the Obama Administration should be taking a more active role in this disaster, but can you imagine if the administration did take much more control of the situation before any outcry? All you would hear is how Obama wants to control everything with big government with his socialist agenda and that we are using tax dollars instead of BP dollars.
I wonder were all the contaminated sand and other things end up? Landfill?
Too bad Superman isn’t around. He would tie up that leaking pip into a knot and then spin so fast creating some kind of vortex that would separate the oil from the water and be able to deposit it into some kind of tanker.
