Drug Smugglers Create Weed Firing Catapult - Drug smugglers trying to get weed across the U.S./Mexico border are getting even more creative than simply loading watermelon trucks with marijuana. Actual video of the Catapult in action here.
This is what happens when criminals start watching educational programs such as Pumpkin Chunkin on Discovery. I just pray to God they've never seen an episode of Myth Busters, who knows what diabolical ideas they'd be able to cultivate from that show.
How Porn is Changing Our Lives - We believe that porn is the equivalent of professional wrestling: phony and superficial. It’s like subsisting on a junk-food diet of Gummi bears and Gatorade when you could be having a gourmet meal.
Don't worry, its a CNN link, nothing raunchy. Basically he comes to the conclusion that porn is making men fat and dysfunctional. I think this may be a bit of a chicken and the egg thing here, are they fat and dysfunctional because they like porn? Or do they like porn because they're dysfunctional and fat.
Florida Sheriff Bans Hood Rats from the Force - This morning, a new policy was read off at Broward Sheriff's Office roll call: Deputies are no longer allowed to have visible tattoos, piercings, or gold teeth.
Apparently this is a big problem in Broward County? Police officers rolling with do-rags, grilles and fronts? I don't blame the Sheriff's department at all. It may be profiling, but if I see someone with Gold Fronts and tats up their arms and necks I usually just assume they'd mug me without a second thought, I don't care what kind of uniform you're wearing.
Baseball Player Walks Away from Guranteed 12 Million Dollar Contract - Meche -- who signed a five-year, $55 million contract with the Royals before the 2007 season -- decided to walk away from the game, and millions of dollars, due to shoulder problems. "When I signed my contract, my main goal was to earn it. Once I started to realize I wasn't earning my money, I felt bad. I was making a crazy amount of money for not even pitching. Honestly, I didn't feel like I deserved it. Making that amount of money from a team that's already given me over $40 million for my life and for my kids, it just wasn't the right thing to do
Wow, Gil Meche needs to be signed up as the financial advisor for all players in American Professional Sports. Not for walking away from $12 million, that was dumb (honest, but dumb all the same). But for implying that $40 million is enough for himself and his kids to live on. See what happens when you don't have to support an entourage of Mookie, Ray-Ray's, Talib's, and don't spend your off season paying for strippers college educations?
