Rory McIlroy to Win Masters?

@ 01:00 PM (41 months, 8 days ago)

 

Not to be provincial, but I'd rather see his and all the other foreigner's wheels come off and an American win.  If not, I can deal with that lovable bear, Angel Cabrera winning.

Is Algeria the Next Domino to Fall in the Middle East?

@ 04:00 PM (43 months, 4 days ago)

 

Remember about 18 months ago when the Iranian people were in the streets just like the Egyptians, but got killed for their trouble and the dictators stayed in power?  The Iranian people and people all over the middle east saw the success of the Egyptian people.  This will embolden people all over the region.  I have a hunch Algeria will be the next to topple.

Rocket Scientists Not as Smart as Originally Thought

@ 01:10 AM (44 months, 2 days ago)

 

Rocket scientists, long considered the gold standard in intelligence among all professionals, are not nearly as smart as originally thought, according to a controversial new study published today by the American Association of Brain Surgeons.  The study, which appears in the organization’s monthly publication, Popular Brain Surgery, is entitled “The Intelligence of Rocket Scientists: Myth Versus Reality,” and suggests that rocket scientists’ reputation for smartness is largely undeserved.

“It does require a superior intellect to function as a rocket scientist,” the article concedes. “Having said that, though, rocket science is not brain surgery.”  The article drew an immediate rebuke from a spokesperson for the American Society of Rocket Scientists, who blasted the study as “state-of-the-art pro-brain surgeon propaganda.”

“As rocket scientists, we take offense at this naked attempt by a devious cabal of opportunistic brain surgeons to supplant us as the smartest people on the planet,” the spokesperson said. “If rocket science is so easy, we’d like to see these so-called brain surgeons give it a try one of these days.”  Professor Davis Logsdon, a University of Minnesota expert who studies the turf wars between rocket scientists and brain surgeons, said that he believes the latest controversy between the two groups has been overplayed.  “The fact of the matter is, the smartest people in the world have always been, and will always be, University of Minnesota experts,” he said.

Trump 'really thinking' about 2012 Presidential bid

@ 12:22 PM (45 months, 7 days ago)

 

Let’s get one thing straight: Donald Trump doesn’t want to run for president. Honestly, he doesn’t. Not interested.  But because the country is in such dire straits, he says, the business tycoon and perennial publicity hound just might have no choice. The country needs him.

“For the first time really would think about it. And I am thinking about it. It doesn’t mean I want to do it. I’d prefer not doing it. I’m having a lot of fun doing what I’m doing. It’s a great time to be buying things. I’m buying a lot of things and really having a good time,” Trump told Joy Behar Wednesday on HLN, CNN’s sister network.

“But I hate - you know, I’m very proud of this country. I’m very proud to be an American. And frankly, I hate what I’m seeing. I hate that friends of mine from Europe, from Asia, from all over the world - they’re telling me stories about this country,” the reality television host lamented.   Trump said President Obama particularly embarrassed America when he traveled to Copenhagen a year ago in a failed last-minute bid to secure the 2016 summer Olympics for Chicago.

As President Obama's approval ratings plummet, the democrats chances in the fall elections diminish dramatically to the point that majorities in both the House and Senate are in jeopardy.  Once again the democrats have proven their usual ineptness and greediness.

Confident Flyers Know They Must Win in Chicago

@ 10:53 AM (51 months, 16 days ago)

 

The Windy City looked a lot like it did a week ago: the overcast skies threatened rain, and the thick air clung to all who ventured out of doors.  But to the Flyers, it was a much different place from the one it was the last time they took the ice at the United Center.

Saturday, they arrived at the Madhouse on Madison with a new series ahead of them, tied with the Blackhawks at two wins each after sweeping a pair of games at the Wachovia Center.  Look at it however you will, but the Flyers have the ‘Hawks off their game. The past two games mark the first time this postseason that Chicago has lost two in a row.

After being down 2-0 in the series after their first trip here, the Flyers now have momentum on their side. But now they must convert that momentum into a win on Blackhawk turf.  “We knew at that point we had no choice in Philly but to go one game at a time,” Simon Gagne said. “And we were a confident team in Philly, we’re a tough team to beat in our building, and we knew that it was something we were able to do. … We knew that we had to come into our building and win those two games – and our team kind of responded a lot this year with those type of moments.”

The Flyers have performed well under pressure all year – playing some of their best hockey when their backs are against a wall. Barely a press conference or postgame interview goes by without a reference to the final regular-season shootout win over the Rangers

They were desperate then, and found a way to win. They were desperate when they were down 3-0 to the Boston Bruins. They were desperate in Game 3 and Game 4 of this series in Philadelphia.

“There’s a lot of pressure when you lose a game or you lose a couple games,” Laviolette said. “You go home and you’re wondering if you’ll win the next game. It’s human nature more than anything else. Usually desperation kicks in at that point, so I’m going to expect Chicago is going to come with a pretty good game tomorrow night.

“We know that we’ve got to win here. We know we’ve got to put one in the books on the road.  In Chicago for the second time in just a week, the Flyers are now the more confident team. They’re playing as good collectively as they have all year, and now they know they’re capable of beating the Blackhawks.

Citing Kagan's Lack of Judging Experience, GOP Proposes Paula Abdul

@ 12:36 AM (52 months, 11 days ago)

 

Howling in protest over Obama Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s lack of judging experience, leading Republicans today urged the President to withdraw Kagan and instead nominate Paula Abdul.  “The American people have had years of watching Paula’s judging expertise, and they know that she is fair,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee.  “She’s certainly fairer than Simon.”  As to the criticism that sometimes on “American Idol” Ms. Abdul seemed to be not all there and had nothing to say, Sen. Sessions said, “You could say the same thing about Clarence Thomas.”

Jesse James Receives Mail

@ 11:28 PM (53 months, 8 days ago)

 

Hey Jesse,


You stupid moron! You cheated on Sandra Bullock?  How in the world can you be so stupid? You are married to one of the most beautiful women in the world.  She has a body to die for and her current wealth shadowed only by Oprah.  Your wife, recently beat out Julia Roberts in the polls and is now named "America's Sweetheart."  You also remember, she just won an Oscar and praised you up and down in front of the world while you were slipping around.  You are really a piece of work! You are the most hated cheating idiot on the planet!  How can you live with yourself?  I only have one thing to say to the despicable, miserable, cheating
piece of crap that you are:

Thanks for taking the heat off of me.  Let*s do lunch,

Sales Sluggish for New Sony Walkman™

@ 08:02 PM (53 months, 19 days ago)

 

What if they launched a new high-tech gadget and nobody came?  That's the question the Sony Corporation is asking itself after the disappointing launch Saturday morning of its much-hyped new music playing device, the Sony Walkman Sports Ultra™.

In Sony stores around the world, the company hired additional salesclerks to handle the anticipated crowds - crowds that never materialized.  "So far only three people have come into the store this morning, and two of them were just looking for a bathroom," said Tracy Klugian, a clerk at the Sony store in downtown Chicago.  "I'm kind of like, where is everybody?"

Mr. Klugian said he was puzzled that the new Sony Walkman™, which comes in seven sporty colors and has such features as auto-reverse, has failed to catch on with consumers: "If there's a more awesome device being sold this morning, I'd like to know what it is."  But according to tech insider Zach Felderstein, the tepid reception to the new Sony Walkman™ may be a simple case of bad timing.

"In this business, timing is everything," said Mr. Felderstein, who orgazanized last month's poorly attended tech conference North By Northwest.

Toyota Chief Overshoots Congressional Hearings by 150 Miles

@ 09:55 PM (54 months, 27 days ago)

 

The reputation of the Toyota Motors Corp. received another black eye today as the president of the embattled company missed his scheduled appearance at Congressional hearings after he overshot Washington, D.C. by 150 miles.  Toyota president Akio Toyoda said he was having difficulties with the brakes on his 2010 Toyota Prius, which finally came to rest after crashing into a blacksmith’s shop in Colonial Williamsburg.  In a brief statement to reporters, Mr. Toyoda said, “I knew I should’ve driven my Chevy today.”

In yet another embarrassment, Mr. Toyoda, the grandson of the carmaker’s founder, realized for the first time that his family’s name is spelled differently from the company’s.  Mr. Toyoda said that all members of the Toyoda family would be immediately recalled to fix the spelling error.
