This takes awhile to read but is quite funny. And true?

Brilliant? or Stupid?

To save airport baggage hassles and losses - fly with a gun.

"A "weapons" is defined as a rifle, shotgun, pistol, airgun, and STARTER PISTOL. Yes, starter pistols - those little guns that fire blanks at track and swim meets - are considered weapons...and do NOT have to be registered in any state in the United States.

I have a starter pistol for all my cases. All I have to do upon check-in is tell the airline ticket agent that I have a weapon to declare...I'm given a little card to sign, the card is put in the case, the case is given to a TSA official who takes my key and locks the case, and gives my key back to me. That's the procedure. The case is extra-tracked...TSA does not want to lose a weapons case. This reduces the chance of the case being lost to virtually zero.

It's a great way to travel with camera gear...I've been doing this since Dec 2001 and have had no problems whatsoever."

Worth Watching - "Brick"

It's an old-fashioned detective movie. Take a 1950's black and white detective murder mystery, move it to a present day high school and you have Brick. It has wonderful lines like, "With you behind me I'll have to keep one eye out to watch both your hands."

Teacher gives x-rated handout

"E" is for embarrassed — like the teacher who inadvertently used a kinky alphabet in a handout to parents.

Tickle Me Elmo Extreme

T.M.X. Elmo has three tickle spots on his chin, tummy or foot. When you tickle Elmo once on any of the tickle spots, he starts to laugh and slap his leg twice, then falls down into a sitting position and rocks himself back up to standing while laughing.

When you tickle him a second time, he repeats the pattern, then sits down again and falls backwards, kicking his feet while laughing even harder. And on the third tickle, he rolls over onto his tummy, thumping his hand on the floor in laughter, and then stands back up again.

The new doll is priced at $39.99.

A pretty funny personal ad


Everytime I post one of these I get flooded with 30yrold+ men with steady jobs. I am 24 going on 16 and well on my way to getting fired for ircing all day. I want a fellow slacker who rarely leaves his bedroom, but who is also willing to break into abandoned warehouses with me at 3am on a Tuesday. I like scrawny geekboys between 21-27 that I can toss across the room. If you exercise in any regular way, we aren't going to work out, trust me.

Easy Lemon Chicken Recipe

I saw this picture for a lemon breast chicken that looked really good. I thought I would share it with others who are forced into the kitchen several times a week. Anyway, here it is:

Ingredients:
1 whole chicken (weight is dependent on how many servings are required)
1 large lemon, cut into halves
sprig of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Rub butter or oil over the skin of the chicken until it is completely
coated

Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat;

Slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up. This way the juice from the lemon will coat the breast. Season skin of chicken to your preference, place sprig of rosemary into
the chicken.

Cover and place in oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the bird.

If you've followed these steps correctly, your chicken should look like the one in the picture.

Bon Appetit!

Time lapse video of a balloon race

Darwin misses one.

Two elderly women are recovering from heat stroke and heat exhaustion after locking themselves in a hot car in Daytona Beach.

Police say their battery apparently died, the automatic locks failed, and they didn't know they could unlock the doors manually.

The women were trapped for nearly two hours before a passerby spotted their plea for help, which they wrote on the back of a tissue box.

Rescue workers smashed a window to get the ladies out.

Who complains about marijuana cookies?

About 8 p.m. Wednesday, about 16 people, ages 18 to 25, at the co-op experienced adverse reactions after eating marijuana cookies or cookie dough and called for help, authorities said. Twelve were hospitalized but were expected to recover.

UC Berkeley police said Anderson and Portka made the cookies and Tobias supplied the marijuana for an annual event commemorating the assigning of rooms at the co-op, which has had a reputation for partying.

In court Friday, Portka's attorney, William Linehan, sought to downplay the incident, telling the commissioner that those who ate the cookies "were not sick. They were wasted."

In seeking the couple's release, Linehan told Lott, "Our clients are not deemed as suppliers -- they're bakers." That comment elicited laughter from the courtroom gallery and a smile from the commissioner.

Want It!


You sink into a warm bath, the scent of vanilla and honey wafts through the air, pleasuring your senses – you sip your glass of champagne and bask in the soft glow of the candles. Hang on a minute...you didn't light any candles!

Who needs candles? You've got Glow in the Dark Bubble Bath. So much fun you'll want to share it with more than just your rubber ducky.

Birdwatching in the Big Hole and Jefferson river valleys



In one hour we saw turkeys, vultures, bald eagles, golden eagles and sandhill cranes. LOTS of sandhill cranes.

This is the Jefferson river from LaHood park. The nearest mountain is about 3 miles away, the farthest is 10.

The whole world smells like a campfire. In Helena I can see the outline of Mt. Helena but not the face.

The "Franklin Roosevelt" doll from Target


The reviews are fun to read:

"How well I remember the Democratic Convention of 1932 when Franklin Roosevelt flew a kite inside the Chicago Convention Center and first drew lightining to the amazement of Al Smith's supporters. The world was changed forever, and, mostly, for the better. As we all know, the Electric Kite Powered Wheelchair eventually became the Segway."
