A legless lizard...

So, I know.

It looks like a snake. Long, skinny, no legs - Snake.

Uh, no, legless lizard.


I am sorry.

Yes. Legless. Lizard.

Not snake.

Why not a snake? Good question.

Turns out (I didn't know and my major in college was Zoology) that a snake--a snake--has fixed eye lids, no blinky. This fella has a clear half eyelid on the lower part of his eye.

So, lizard. Legless.

Scientists are goofier than IT guys.


Why didn't this thing take off like a rocket ?!?!?!?

Wildly unbelievable

Jet bicycle?! Not even I am that nuts...

Fantastic marketing

I love seeing this kind of creative marketing. Most commercials assume I am an idiot and are patently ineffective but stuff like this really works on me.

Cool trend in Japan

I love this ! ! They take new Japanese minivans and Scion Xb style econoboxes and modify the grills and front end to resemble classic American trucks and vans.

I don't know if it'll catch on here but it might make it easier for some 'manly men' to drive a minivan.

Maybe GM, Ford or Chrysler will catch wind of this and add something like it to the current trend of 'Retro' styled cars and reintroduction of classics like the new Mustang and Challenger.

Gotta get me one of those Xb's that look like an early Suburban - too cool....

Got to get me one of these ! ! !


Well this sucks

University of Michigan researchers have just discovered the reason why married women always have so much housework to do: their husbands!
A new study from the University of Michigan shows that having a husband creates an extra seven hours of extra housework a week for women. But a wife saves her husband from an hour of chores around the house each week.
"It’s a well-known pattern. There’s still a significant reallocation of labor that occurs at marriage — men tend to work more outside the home, while women take on more of the household labor," said Frank Stafford, of the university’s Institute for Social Research (ISR), who directed the study.
"And the situation gets worse for women when they have children," he added in a statement.

Aren't they BEAUTIFUL???

Domo bought a HOUSE ! ! !

My little brother bought a new house ! ! !
He is moving quite a bit closer to me (14 miles) and I am so excited and happy for him that I cannot put it in to words.
The place is in a great neighborhood and is in fantastic shape.
Domo plans to make some minor changes to make the place more his own but all in all I think it will need little work at all.
It is 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and 2200 + sq ft, has a three car garage (one space for the El Camino?) and has a good sized yard for Domo and Julie's little devils.
Because of the current market and Domo's bargain hunting skills (unyielding stubbornness) he got an unbelievable price and gained what looks like more than $300,000 in instant equity.
You'll have to hit him up on the details as they aren't mine to give but rest assured he made a great deal on a wonderful house.

Happy 100th Birthday to the windshield wiper...

The humble windscreen wiper is celebrating its 100th birthday.
Gladstone Adams came up with the idea exactly a century ago as he drove home from London through a snowstorm having watched Newcastle United play Wolves in the 1908 FA Cup final.
Here are 10 things you might not know about the humble blade:
:: The wipers on early models of the iconic Citroen 2CV were powered mechanically by the engine, and varied with its speed. When the car came to a halt, so did the wipers, and the driver had to operate them manually using a handle under the dashboard.
:: Most cars now use an electric motor to power the wiper blades, though some vehicles with air brakes use air-operated wipers.
:: The first intermittent wipers were introduced in 1969, with adjustable speed.
:: Formula One cars do not have windscreen wipers. The driver's helmet visor has a number of clear films covering it, which he can remove one by one when rain and dirt build up.
:: Swedish manufacturer Saab introduced headlight wipers in 1970.
:: The 1975 Citroen CX was the first mainstream production car to use a single, centrally-hinged wiper instead of a pair.
:: The first patent for windscreen wipers in the US was filed in the early 1900s by one Mary Anderson, who was apparently initially told the idea had little commercial value. By the early 1920s - after her patent expired - wipers were fitted as standard in cars across the US and Europe.
:: In 2001 Citroen launched the first UK production car to feature rain-sensitive wipers that activate automatically. Other manufacturers, including Renault, Honda, Peugeot, Mercedes and Toyota now offer similar features.
:: The Italian firm Fioravani has created a concept car with no wipers. The windscreen of the Hidra uses a special oxide to repel water, while tiny nozzles project high-pressured water and air to clear away dirt.
:: As well as car windscreens, wipers also feature on planes, ships and even the space shuttle.

This is an alcohol vaporizer and supposedly this method of consuming alcohol reduces the effects of a hangover and is low in carbohydrates.
The AWOL Vaporizer claims it has a built-in safety device because it takes about 20 minutes to inhale one vaporizer shot of alcohol (about 1/2 actual shot size).
It is designed to allow people to enjoy the effects of alcohol mixed with oxygen. It promotes a sense of well being and a mild euphoria. It is a fun new legal way to enjoy alcohol.
The new method is known as AWOL, an acronym for “Alcohol With Out Liquid”, and is a hit in the global club scene due to the euphoric “high” created when alcohol is vaporized, mixed with oxygen and inhaled.

The user chooses which alcoholic spirit will be used and the alcoholic spirit is loaded into a diffuser capsule in the machine. The oxygen bubbles are then passed through the capsule, absorbing the alcohol, before being inhaled through a tube. The resultant cloudy alcohol vapor is then inhaled from the end of the tube via a device that converts liquid to vapor.
Uh, yeah, right.

Officially gone too far...

The end of an era...

Ollie Johnston, the last of the "Nine Old Men" of classic Disney Animators, passed away on Wednesday. Ollie started working with Disney doing "in-between" work on their animated shorts in 1935, and progressed along with the other eight into their now classic feature films. You can either check out his credit list at imdb.com, or you can just walk over to your shelf and look at every single Disney feature-length animated film you have that was produced before "The Little Mermaid". He worked on all of them.

You can see him below animated in Pixar's "The Incredibles" he is one of the two old men depicted after the robot fight scene in the city. He says "..now that's old school..." the other gentleman is another of the "Nine Old Men" Frank Thomas--who died in 2004 just prior to the official release.

They also appeared in and provided the voices for the train engineers in The Iron Giant.

Very Cool USB Drive...

Even if you’ve never heard of tritium before, odds are you’ve already experienced it. The radioactive material is used in compasses, gun sights, watches and other items you might need to use at night. While something like LEDs actually throw off far more light, the real advantage to tritium is that it doesn’t need a power source. In fact it will glow for years and years, even in complete darkness. The tiny piece used in this keychain will glow for about 10 years, and will ensure you’ll never lose your keys if you drop them in the woods in the middle of the night while the moon’s blocked out by clouds and you don’t happen to have a flashlight.
They’re available from DealExtreme for just $9.80 and come in either a white glow or green glow version. And while the material is radioactive, it’s safe to use in consumer products since the beta particles it emits are too weak to even penetrate human skin. (Though at one point we thought radium was safe to use too.)

Corvette ZR1

The 2009 Corvette ZR1 is getting oh so close to launch, and it's just been caught doing hot laps on the Nürburgring. The most powerful Corvette ever built was captured on video running consecutive laps in the 7:40 range — that unofficial time puts it in the race for the top production car ever round the Nordschleife. Not only that, but the conditions of the drive were pure funk, with a cold and wet track and engineers at the helm. ZR1 Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter is noted as saying the ZR1 will beat any production car's track record anywhere in the world and this news stands to back that up.
