Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship Of The Ring in 8 minutes

Saturday, May 31, 2014 10:00 pm

[High Praise! to Mighty Mega]

This has a generous handful of gratuitous swears, but it’s also a clear and succinct condensation of the first movie. Watching it will make you realize just how much of FotR was nothing but reaction shots and walking scenes (breathtaking though they were) that did nothing to advance the story.

It’s Like, Fiduciary, Dude

In Colorado, a new University has opened its doors that teaches people how to run a marijuana business.

The hardest part – convincing them that a lava lamp is NOT considered a depreciable asset for tax purposes.

A Florida high school football coach has been arrested after authorities say he repeatedly stole money from students’ wallets.

So… he’s in a position of trust and continually betrayed those he served? Looks like Obama just found Eric Holder’s replacement.

Personally, I’d skip the one at the 52-second mark in favor of using the staple-remover on the right.

A former British tabloid editor admitted that he hacked Kate Middleton’s phone 155 times.

Can’t tell if he’s clearing his conscience or polishing an NSA internship application.

TV networks are complaining that several major advertisers have moved a portion of the money they previously spent on television to online media outlets.

Finally! Something that CAN be blamed on a YouTube video.

Make your voice heard: Sign this petition on raising the minimum wage. http://ofa.bo/plW #RaiseTheWage

@BarackObama

“Or… you can quit fooling around on the internet, get back to work, and earn a raise on your own merit – if the business doesn’t go bankrupt because of Obamacare first.”

How Are You Everybody?

Friday, May 30, 2014 11:00 am

I haven’t done this in a while, but I thought I’d share a spam comment I got I really liked:

I am regular reader, how are you everybody?
This paragraph posted at this site is genuinely pleasant.

Why can’t you regular readers be as complimentary as spammers? When was the last time one of you told me how pleasant a paragraph was that I wrote?

Well, yes, I haven’t blogged full paragraphs very much lately, but maybe I would do that more often if you said things like, “That series of sentences you put together to form one thought filled me with a pleasant feeling.”

Anyway, here is another nice spam comment:

What’s up, this weekend is fastidious in support of me,
as this time i am reading this wonderful informative post here at my home.

May you all have a weekend that is fastidious in support of you.

Random Thoughts: Chemtrails, Government Incompetency, and Whining

Friday, May 30, 2014 9:00 am

The reason there are so many more wacky conspiracy theories these days is that the government puts paranoia-inducing chemicals in chemtrails.

“I voted for Obama because the GOP VP candidate was ignorant.” That pulls into question your wisdom on anything else.

That was a common thinking for a lot of people. Probably breathed in chemtrails.

Just really weird someone who voted for Obama wondering why government is so incompetent.

“Why does government fail at everything it does? Oh, better go vote to reelect Obama before the polls close.”

Call me an insane dreamer, but I still hold out hopes that M. Night Shyamalan will one day make a good film again.

I’ve concluded that not having the same political beliefs as me makes you angry and stupid and shut up.

I wonder how many people would be a serial killer except they’ve just never tried killing anyone and don’t know how much they’d like it.

I wonder if I hindered my daughter from eschewing traditional gender roles by naming her Buttercup.

One day people will look back on our society and say, “Never before had people been blessed with so much yet whined so incessantly.”

Let It Be Known

Iran announced to the world that they’ve built an exact replica of a US stealth drone aircraft they shot down in 2011.

Yes, because spy-tech is MUCH more effective after you’ve held a presser about it.
