Electric skin - the Flamboyant cuttlefish

Flamboyant cuttlefish are amazing, the only creature with electric skin!

Scientists are using the same technology to develop see-through skin for soldiers:

A pizza vending machine!

Just what we need a pizza vending machine!

Made for Italy, but watch, it will soon be available for Americans to get fatter!

Presidential $100m budget costs - in perspective

Well, 10 million in budget cuts sounds big, until you see it in-scale:

The McAfrika Fiasco!

The socialist snobs in Norway have done it again, creating a McAfrika sandwich for McDonalds!

The McAfrika - For that great African taste

What's next, the McEthiopia burger, nothing between the bun?

Or The McSomalia burger, a priates dream. . . .

Me, I like the idea of the McRedneck burger, a possum pattie nestled between two Krispy Kreme doughnuts:

Help prevent florist friars . . .

Once upon a time there was a quaint little village where all the villagers lived in peace and happiness.

Then one day a couple of Friars moved into town and opened a florist shop. In the back yard they kept a man eating plant.

A couple of local kids climbed the fence and the plant ate them.

The villagers were infuriated and demanded the Friars move out but nothing they could do would make them leave. Then they got Hugh, the village blacksmith to kick them out and everyone was happy again.

The moral to this story:

Hugh, and only Hugh can prevent florist friars.

Eating Hot Dog cables

What a clever idea! What a great idea for feeding kids!

You simply thrust dried noodles through hot dog slices (or puppy peters) for a quick redneck kiddie treat!

I gotta remember this for when the grandkids start coming . . .

I wish they would get busy and start reproducing . . . .

Grayson Murray – The Bobby Jones of the 21st Century?

I was watching Antiques Roadshow last week and I got offended when somebody said that Bobby Jones was the Tiger Woods of the 20th century!

In reality, it’s Tiger Woods who is the Bobby Jones of the 21st Century.

Bobby Jones was an amazing golfer, in his day, the best swing on the planet:

In his day, Bobby Jones played gold regularly with President Eisenhower, and enjoyed huge fame.

Tiger is a billionaire and he has a smoking-hot Swedish trophy wife, but how long will be hold-on to his titles?

Enter Grayson Murray of Raleigh North Carolina, who as a 9 year old child who had only been golfing for a few years was already shoots in the 70’s. At 15, he stands poised to challenge Tiger's records:

Grayson Murray - The next tiger?

Tiger Woods was coached by his Dad (a retired Army Lt. Col), and while he was a prodigy, this Grayson kid has him beat already!

Tiger was quoted as saying “people may out play me, but nobody will out-practice me”, a great testament that becoming a great golfer is far more than raw talent.

Grayson is already challenging Tigers records, and he may break Tigers record in 2009:

“Only three other boys have ever won three junior worlds in a row, a trio of names that includes one Eldrick “Tiger” Woods.

And, while Tiger and the other two “three-peaters” would all eventually win four in a row, Murray’s victory in July makes him a perfect three-for-three thus far in his young career — and Murray now has his goal squarely set on equaling his predecessors feat with a four-peat of his own in 2009”.

Make no mistake, I’m a fan of Grayson because he is a home town North Carolina boy, but by golly, any kid who can become a scratch golfer in 18 months is mighty impressive.

Will Grayson fall by the wayside?

Unless he REALLY WANTS IT and practices relentlessly, no amount of raw talent will beat Tiger.

Funny dog collar

Funny dog collar indeed:

Business etiquette for professionals

Business etiquette for professionals is not natural and cries of "Mind your manners" can ruin a business meeting.

I’ve always been fascinated by social customs and business etiquette, and MBA schools are now teaching young professionals proper manners. Business etiquette changes over time!

In the early 19th century it was proper to pour tea into your saucer and slurp it directly, and then wipe your lips on the tablecloth!

Picking a good source is business etiquette is important, stick with American etiquette, oif you want good manners:

Pick an American source for proper etiquette

My young MBA’s don’t learn important business etiquette in MBA schools these days, and they often commit a faux paux like choosing a funky wine for dinner:

Don’t choose a wine just because it has a high tech name

All business professionals should learn business golf etiquette, as many business meetings are conducted on the golf links these days.

The Peapod Car

With those Smart cars littering the highways after being creamed by SUV’s, some genius thinks we need an even smaller car!

If you want to look really, really gay, or if you are from Europe, this is the car for you:

The PeaPod

It’s made by GEM, the same people who made my GEM golf cart. Come to think of it, the PeaPod looks like a golf cart, not something I would take on a real road.

Dining at the CIA

Whenever I’m in Poughkeepsie, or Fishkill (visiting their giant IBM facility), Janet and I always make sure to dine at the Culinary Institute of America (The CIA).

The CIA is a world renowned chef college, and it has four on-campus restaurants, all reasonably priced, with the chef students working as your wait staff!

It’s a great way to get a world class, five star meal for under $100 (not including wine), but there are some rules:

1 – Call early – Some restaurants book-up weeks in advance

2 – Pay upon reservations – You will be changed if you don’t show-up, so make sure not to miss your reservation

You can now do online reservations, here.

Eating at the CIA is a life-changing experience.

Everyone there are die-hard foodies, and it’s all about having the meal of a lifetime!

What does Obama smoke?

What does Obama smoke?

Insiders say that Obama's brand of smokes is Newport 100’s (in the soft pack), but it makes me wonder what else he has been smokin’?

Kal Penn will be Obama’s liaison to Asian-American groups, which makes us wonder why Harold (who plays a real pot smoking Asian American) was not tapped first!

Since smoking appears to factor heavily into Obama’s decision making process, I think that Cheech Marin of Cheech and Chong fame was a better choice.

Can you imagine what people would have said if Bush did something like this?

Self-inflicted injury as a treatment for RA - Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a disabling disease there an out-of-whack immune systems attacks your joints, resulting in horrible deformities. Even worse, the medications for Rheumatoid Arthritis (Embril) have very dangerous side-effects, like death.

Some say that injuries can "fool" RA and keep it from attacking joints!

I know someone with Rheumatoid Arthritis who has discovered that when they are injured, the RA is kept busy with the injury and the RA goes into remission.

To stay injured, they get periodic liposuction treatments which do great tissue damage, thereby fooling the Rheumatoid Arthritis into not attacking their joints!

I’m not a doctor, but this self-mutilation sounds like a smart way to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis without drugs!

Dog House Mansion Ideas

We love our guard dogs and we are underway building them a “dog mansion”, complete with air conditioning and all the canine luxuries. Our dog mansion is a Floridian / Mediterranean /Caribbean hybrid design, with separate areas for each Rottweiler:

Red Mercury found in old sewing machines!

One of the best hoaxes this year, so far:

Arabians pay high prices for old sewing machines

“The English-language Saudi Gazette newspaper said some buyers were willing to pay up to 200,000 riyals ($50,000) for an old Singer sewing machine proven to contain red mercury.”

Spotting fake university degrees

I’m way to trusting. In this day and age, I still make the mistake of taking people at their word.
Resume fraud is Rampant, and over half of the resume I get today contain outright lies, including fake university credentials. Worse yet and the fake degrees from diploma mills, where you “pay your fee and get your B”.

Here are some scumbags who brag about graduating from this diploma mill

Founded by scammer James Kirk (no relation to Captain Kirk of Star Trek), LaSalle University gave out hundreds of baloney degrees shortly before he went to prison for mail fraud, listed hundreds of companies that they said had accepted and paid for their degrees.

“La Salle University in Louisiana, is a notorious degree mill that was shut down by federal authorities after a raid of its offices in 1995. Its founder, James Kirk, served more than four years in federal prison for mail fraud and tax evasion.”

I’ve now learned to look-up degrees and not take anyone at face value anymore, a sad commentary on the lying scum who send me resumes every day . . .

- Here are my notes on spotting MBA diploma mills

- And my tips on verifying a college degree

- Here is a list of unaccredited diploma mills

These scumbags discredit everyone who worked hard for years to earn a real degree.

Domino’s caught on video placing boogers in pizza

Contaminating food with foreign objects (boogers, feces, body parts) is a felony, and here it is, a Domino’s employee proudly blowing boogers onto a Domino’s pizza and wiping his butt with the cleaning sponge:

Updated Video’s of Domino’s booger pizza and butt-wipe feces contamination

Is this a frame-up because Domino's management does not support Queermo marriages?

And here, totally disgusting video's of illegal food contamination:

Somebody realy wants to defame Domino's Pizza - Warniung: criminal acts

From above link, video of employee wiping his butt with a cleaning sponge and contaminating Dominoe's food with feces.

And don't miss the part where he wipes feces onto the cleaning sponge!

Hello? These are felonies, and these kids should be jailed immediately, some folks say that this store is in NC:

Reddit detectives claim to know the store location

Was Domino's food contamination an act of gay terrorism?

It's been noted that both of these people claim to be gay and Kristy is a registered sex offender, so one has to wonder if she is a gay terrorist, going after Dominoe's for being owned by a Republican?

The Conover NC scumbags are arrested and charged with "delivering prohibited foods", hopefully a felony charge suimilat to placing a foreign object in foods.

Arrested scum Kristy Hammonds and Michael Setzer

Kristy is a registered sex offender, convicted of "Sexual battery":

I wonder if there is a hate crime angle to this story?

"Thompson, 31, has a criminal history that includes a conviction for sexual battery last June and convictions for possession of stolen property and breaking into a vending machine". . .

The scumbags claim that they are gay in the video, and because the owner of Domino's is a well-known Republican who opposes Homo marriage, this might possiblt be an act of gay terrorism, plain and simple.

Hair extensions for horses

Here in NC, many people clip horses tails to make hair extensions for humans, but now we see the trend reversing, with human hair being used as hair extensions for horses.

Hair extension for horse manes

For horses with short manes, horse hair extensions make them feel beautiful again!
Horses like to dress-up just like people; they even use our shower at home:

Horses like to be clean

Horses like to wear fancy shoes too, and the guide horse users have a wide variety of horse sneakers, for everything from formal to casual wear:

Judges fines blogger 1.8 million dollars for allowing defamation on a blog

People have to be crazy to allow people to put comments on their blogs!

This article notes that a blogger has been fined 1.8 million dollars for an article that he allowed to be published on his blog.

"The head of a local advertising agency has won $1.8 million in damages after suing an author of a blog - known for its harsh and sometimes crass criticism of elected officials, business leaders and local media - for defamation."

People are starting to wake-up to the fact that bloggers are publishers, and as a publisher, they are wholly responsible for what they publish – whether they wrote it or not!

Navy vs. Pirates!

What fun, an old-fashioned showdown with the Somalian pirates:

Top Raleigh Golf Instructor gets PGA award

Kudos go out to our good friend and coach, PGA master professional Brad Clayton, named 2008 Carolinas Section PGA Teacher of the Year:

Brad Clayton gets our vote as the best Raleigh golf instructor!

Brad teaches in Raleigh North Carolina, and his exceptional skills as the best golf instructor in Raleigh deserve recognition! Brad is also the author of the book “Puzzleduck Golf”:

The best fairway woods

My traditional best fairway wood is the Taylor Made cleek (the old reliable "Ginte"), an amazing, forgiving rescue wood that still has a special place in my bag. The old Taylor-made cleek has a great feel and it gets into rough lies with ease, the best fairway wood and rescue club of the 1980's IMHO:

In the 1980's this was the best fairway wood

But this Ginte fairway club is ancient, a 1980’s model (but you can still buy them on eBay), and the fairway wood technology has changed.

For a fairway wood with a bit more heft, Janet likes the Callaway “Hot X” model fairway woods, her choice for the best ladies fairway wood. The "X" fairway wood has more weight in the club head and you can get some centrifugal force going before impact.

But what’s the best fairway woods for a mid to high handicapper?

For my money, it’s between the Callaway Hot-X and the new Bobby Jones fairway woods.
The Bobby Jones fairway woods are superb for us, Janet and I both have one, and Janet is thinking of replacing her long irons with Bobby Jones fairway woods. The craftsmanship is superb.

PGA Master Brad Clayton turned us on to the Bobby Jones fairway woods, and he has high praise for them. Brad (a right-handed player with a right hand), can hit 120 yards in the air using only his left hand using the Bobby Jones fairway wood. Only a superb fairway club can do that!

Because Janet and I suck at fairway shots, Brad recommended that we try one, and we are hooked! These are the best fairway woods we have ever used, well-balanced and beautiful to behold, with amazing craftsmanship.

Check out this video on the Bobby Jones fairway woods, the best of breed for a mid to high handicapper.

It’s psychological, but playing with a well-crafted club improves my game, a sharp club for a sharp shot.

The Bobby Jones fairway wood are the absolute best for feel and diatance

The Bobby Jones clubs are beautiful, real works of art. The upper just gleams in the sunshine! Golf digest agrees, these are the best fairway woods!

For more research on the best fairway clubs, see my notes on choosing the best fairway woods.

An 11 year old girl field strips an AR-15 in less than 20 seconds!

Look at this amazing little girl! She has supreme confidence in her skills and you can tell that she loves her machine gun. . . . Her parents must be very proud:

This is my rifle. There are many like it but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life.

It’s so refreshing to see parents that teach their kids important lessons like field stripping a machine gun. The AR-15 is the perfect automatic weapon, low caliber with high muzzle velocity:

When I was a kid, my Dad taught me to field strip the Model 1911 Colt 45 pistol, but too few parents teach their girls such important skills these days. The fancy designer handguns for girls these days are not easy to disassemble, all those fancy diamonds:

The kid’s model AR-15 machine guns are far better for young ladies:

My daughter prefers revolvers, the little pansy:

Jen Burleson prefers revolvers to automatic weapons

Saddam Hussein forced to watch South Park movie!

Trey Parker and Matt Stone got a special gift from a US Marine, a signed photo of Saddam Hussein!

Parker & Stone of South Park fame

As part of his punishment for killing thousands of innocent people, Saddam Hussein was forced to watch one of my favorite movies of all time “South Park: Bigger, Longer And Uncut”.

The Marines forced Saddam to watch the South Park movie over-and-over.

"I have it on pretty good information from the marines on detail in Iraq that they showed Saddam the movie. Over and over again – which is a pretty funny thought. That's really adding insult to injury."

(BTW, in the movie credits, the voice of Saddam Hussein is said to have been done by himself!)

BTW, the South Park movie is masterful at several levels, it’s also done as a musical, and Parker and Stone shine show their true genius. . .

Men in uniform love South Park . . .

In the movie, Saddam Hussein play Satan’s homosexual lover, and Saddam is portrayed with a Canadian face and Satan is played as-if he was a typical 19-year old girl:

Saddam plays a queermo lover for Satan himself!

Satan kills Saddam is killed in the final moments of the movie when he calls Satan a “weak stupid cum bucket”.

When a saw this move in the theater, I laughed so hard that I literally cried, and I convulsed for over an hour . . . It was when Mr. Garrison said “I don’t trust anything that bleeds for five days and doesn’t die”

Since then I’ve become a big fan, and Janet even got me a “South Park Pinball Machine” for Christmas, but she hogs it . . .

BTW, don’t forget, a brand new South Park is tonight, the “Funniest joke ever told” . . .

I wonder if it’s this joke from their buddy, foul-mouthed Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller):

Riddle: Why don’t snakes have balls?

Answer: Because they cannot dance.
