I can't believe it's real!

Finally, Barbie has a dog that eats and makes a mess! Tanner the dog is soft and fuzzy and her mouth, ears, head and tail really move! You can open Tanner dog's mouth and "feed" her dog biscuits. Comes with a dog bone and chew toys that Tanner can hold in her mouth, too. When Tanner has to go to the bathroom, Barbie doll cleans up with her special magnetic scooper and trash can.

Bruce Lee Theme Park - Want to go!

CHINESE government officials are planning a Bruce Lee theme park, complete with a rollercoaster that emits the martial arts actor’s signature grunts and screams on high-speed bends.

According to local reports, the park will be patrolled by Bruce Lee “mannequin robots”, radio-controlled from within a giant statue of the late star.

Useful iTunes Tips

"When you need to make large changes to your iTunes library, such as changing the genre for 100's of files, or cleaning up artist names, there are several ways to go about it.

One of my favorites is to hit Apple-B and reveal the browser. This will put a three-paned window on the top of the list view.

Now you can select the genre or artist that you'd like to change at the top, type Apple-I and make changes in bulk. When you are done, it is also quite easy to visually see your changes in the Browser."

Vice, like virtue, is it's own reward

After jamming a finger playing volleyball, I stopped off for a medicinal at Millers. Bored, I put $6 in the poker machine.

I won $320.

Considering I usually put about $5 a month in poker machines, I'm ahead for a few years.

A Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe

Here is a recipe that includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing - imagine that. When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try.


10-12 lb turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER'S LOW FAT)
Salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter salt, andpepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the front of the oven. Listen for the popping sounds.

When the oven door blows open and the turkey flies across the room with popcorn shooting out of its ass it's done.

And, you thought I couldn't cook...

Roger and Elaine.

Let's say a guy named Roger is attracted to a woman named Elaine. He asks her out to a movie; she accepts; they have a pretty good time. A few nights later he asks her out to dinner, and again they enjoy themselves. They continue to see each other regularly, and after a while neither one of them is seeing anybody else. And then, one evening when they're driving home, a thought occurs to Elaine, and, without really thinking, she says it aloud: ''Do you realize that, as of tonight, we've been seeing each other for exactly six months?''

And then there is silence in the car. . . .

I want to learn how to do this for "Shake a Day" in bars

See this movie - Murderball

MURDERBALL, Winner of the Documentary Audience Award and a Special Jury Prize for Editing at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, is a film about tough, highly competitive rugby players. Quadriplegic rugby players. Whether by car wreck, fist fight, gun shot, or rogue bacteria, these men were forced to live life sitting down. In their own version of the full-contact sport, they smash the hell out of each other in custom-made gladiator-like wheelchairs. And no, they don't wear helmets.

"On cue, they dropped into a wide, crouching stance and began the ritual known as the haka. "Ka Mate! Ka Mate! Ka Ora!" (We're going to die! We're going to die! We're going to live!), they chanted in unison as the fans went wild. For the next 60 seconds, the players acted out an ancient battle in which a big hairy man saves the life of a Maori chieftain.

With each phrase, the players slapped their thighs, arms or chests. They stomped back and forth, symbolically thrusting and jabbing at the enemy"

Montana history from 1971

An Air Canada DC-8 airliner with 118 people aboard was hijacked high above Saskatchewan and diverted to Great Falls on Friday night. The hijacker demanded $1.5 million or he said he would start shooting passengers. The hijacker took control of the aircraft at about 6 p.m. Montana time and the flight landed in Great Falls at approximately 7:30 p.m. A Great Falls policewoman came out to the airplane to deliver the money as the hijacker had demanded. The flight then left Great Falls and headed to Phoenix. The hijacker abruptly demanded that the flight return to Great Falls. On the second stop to Great Falls all passengers were allowed to leave the aircraft. The hijacker then had the plane flown to Calgary.

By most accounts this was the only hijacking involving a Montana airport. When this hijacker was apprehended in Calgary, he had three guns with him and a stick of dynamite. It also turned out that the money paid to the hijacker was actually only $50,000, substantially less than he had demanded.

Mutilated cow at Valier ranch adds to mystery

On a ranch between Fort Shaw and Cascade, a carcass was missing its left eye, one teat, its genitals and rectum.

But in this latest case at Peterson's ranch, Kuka found an intriguing clue.

A few feet south of the carcass there was an impression in the stubble field, like the cow had lain down there. But there were no footprints or drag marks between the impression and her final resting place.

It was as if the bovine had fallen from the sky - and bounced.

Could she have been pushed from an aircraft?

2006 Things to Do - visit all of Montana's Breweries

Good beers, though Moose Drool is overated. I used to watch their brewers do a cable access show where they would taste beers, long before there was such a word as "microbrew". They shot it in their basement and it made Waynes World look technically sophisticated.

Also, you can only have four 6 oz. "taster" beers at the brewery. Every other brewery (and state law) allows you to have up to 48 oz. of beer. Of course, it is Missoula so they'd probably be overun with cheap hippies getting free beers.

1984 - The original Apple MacIntosh Ad

Today, we celebrate the first glorious anniversary of the Information Purification Directives. We have created, for the first time in all history, a garden of pure ideology. Where each worker may bloom secure from the pests of contradictory and confusing truths. Our Unification of Thoughts is more powerful a weapon than any fleet or army on earth. We are one people, with one will, one resolve, one cause. Our enemies shall talk themselves to death and we will bury them with their own confusion. We shall prevail!

Gobsmacked - NSFW

Sure, it's just another (graphic) condom ad. But it's the "three second condom."


Pick it up, put it on. Three seconds.

But to be honest it was years later when I was sick on the couch, drinking cough syrup.

In this tableau alone we've got: 1) a victim of date rape, attempted rape, non-date rape, amnesia, a terrible frat-house fire, a stalker, a cult, endometriosis, drug addiction, diet pills addiction, and her step-brother seeing her naked; 2) a dude whose mom was homeless and mentally ill, who was addicted to meth REALLY BAD for one day, who stole money from his girlfriend, who accidentally misplaced his sister because of drugs, who saw his friend accidentally kill himself, and who had to deflower Tori Spelling; 3) Steve Sanders; 4) the most self-righteous character ever written who also happened to be gambling addict, a possible sex addict and someone who caused a drunk-driving accident; and 5) a Type A perfectionist who nevertheless almost had an affair with her drama teacher, had an affair with a dude she met at the laundromat, had an affair with her RA, had an unplanned pregnancy and a terribly painful divorce, and also really bad outfits.
