The Rangers may have won the series against the Rays three games to one, but the Rays scored more runs overall 16-21. I guess that’s kinda like the electoral college.
Yesterday in a conversation someone used the word “ding-dong” which reminded me of the time when I was a sophomore in high school in a physical science class. During class discussion I was doing a bit of name calling towards some girls being a bit of class clown because of something they said in regards to a wrong answer, and I meant to use the word “ding-dong,” but instead said “dildo,” numerous times. Later in class, and much to her credit, the teacher without bringing any attention to me asked to speak to me in the hall and informed me of the true meaning of a “dildo.”
In case you were wondering, I didn’t date much in high school. I think I may have found a reason why.
I use to think that when it came to the English language, that us folks in the U.S. didn’t have an accent but where the ‘standard’ of the language. I guess that’s because I would hear people referring to a British or Australian accent, and when a person from either area sings, they sing without an accent. So we either speak ‘normal’ English or when people sing, they sing with an ‘American’ accent.
Ever since watching a game at Fenway Park and being a part of a crowd singing Sweet Caroline, I’ve really enjoyed seeing what other stadiums do to get their crowd to be part of the experience, something I wished the Cowboys would do and something I think the Rangers do decently. Michigan has a bit using 7 Nation Army, and now Wisconsin has a good crowd sing-a-long with Fill Me Up Buttercup. You guys know of any other good ones out there?
I once lived in a world where Chick-fil-A could only be found inside a mall.
I almost think that Apple pays ABC News to do nothing but positive reporting about them.
Madonna will perform at the upcoming Super Bowl half time show. I think that news has been surprisingly low key.
VirtualTourist.com has a list of the world’s top ten toilets. At the top of the list is a public toilet in Bryant Park, New York. But I was quite fascinated at the urinal at the Madonna Inn in California that is a waterfall toilet the comes to use when it’s used.
One of Bono’s baby’s, the ONE Campaign, has a new video about famine that features a lot of celebrities from both liberal and conservative backgrounds. The video takes a play on words ‘f–k’ and ‘famine’ using the black box to cover up the speakers mouth and a beeping them out. The surprising celebrity to drop the f-bomb (assumingly) is Mike Huckabee.
The Republican controlled House is increasing spending to pay the lawyer that is defending the Defense of Marriage Act.
Fox executives want the voice actors on The Simpsons to take a 45% pay cut, and since that will probably not not happen, it looks like the show will end soon.
An interesting read about a pastor’s consultation with two different individuals at different times about things we fight over in the church. Lets just say I could really relate with one of the individuals.
Here’s a video of a surfer in San Diego that is surfing through algae that glows when it’s disturbed.
I like how electronic voting machines streamline the process, but I don’t like the fact they continue to be easily hacked. You can now hack one via remote control using about $10 in parts and an 8th grade science education.
Here’s an interesting story on how two Nobel Prize medals were dissolved in a chemical solution as the Nazis invaded Copenhagen.
