How To Actually Win a Fist Fight

How To Actually Win a Fist Fight

You know it has to be said, first sentence, first paragraph: the best way to win a fist fight is not to get into one in the first place. No shit, sherlock. Every single mens magazine who has ever attempted to publish an article like this has started (and ended) exactly that way and is usually devoid of any real information - sometimes [...]

If you didn’t know, the United States Postal Service had a very successful competitor.

Attack of the Clones

Attack of the Clones

It’s all the latest rage – vehicle cloning. And rage is just what you’ll feel if you are the victim. Here is how it works. Thieves steal a car, usually a high-end “desirable” car or SUV. Then they take the vehicle identification number or VIN from a similar vehicle and slap it on the stolen car. Because each VIN is [...]

Ron Paul and Neil Cavuto on Fox News

This is a brief video with Presidential hopeful, Ron Paul and Fox News Interviewer, Neil Cavuto. Mr. Cavuto thought he had Dr. Paul with a random question about racist campaign donations, but Dr. Paul saved all the momentum and delivered a swift kick in the ass. This made my day. It's funny how logic always makes people not using it look [...]

Obama: Begin withdrawing our troops engaged in combat operations at a pace of one or two brigades every month, to be completed by the end of next year. Edwards: Supports the immediate [...]

HOWTO: Watch the Fox Prison Break American Express exclusive without a card

Tried to catch up on the Prison Break highlights and came across the Amex Only previews. Well since I don't have an AMEX there's only one choice. Google American Express support numbers. Enter any one of these phone number numbers: 8004924920 8004928468 8005216121 8005253355 8005282122 8005284800 then enter anything longer than 5 [...]

HOWTO: make mp3 files smaller

HOWTO: make mp3 files smaller

An old friend emailed me over the weekend and asked for some help reducing the size of a MP3 file so he could load it on his wireless phone. Seems he wanted the ringer to sound like a sheep when one certain person called (don't ask), but the MP3 he found was too big for the phone to accept. I did a little research and found a cool little [...]

You’re Not Attractive

You’re Not Attractive

And neither is your girlfriend, but in order to stomach the prospect of a long-term relationship, you delude yourself into believing she's better looking than she really is. (This has been suspected for so long that even the Greeks had a euphemism for it.) To see if men (and women) really deceive themselves in this manner, a group of [...]

Losing Faith

Losing Faith

Snagged this off a forum I frequently browse... So let me start by saying I work at Sears and here are a few of the geniuses we have that bring their car in here. Also I work in the store not in the automotive section. I like to work on cars but only on my own time, not as a full time job. But I am good friends with the guys there and [...]

A friend of mine was compiling census data for a project. They sent me these visual census charts, which are pretty informative... especially if you've ever lived/visited The Big Apple. More data after the jump (more…)

Why Commercials Before Movies Is Worse Than Piracy

Why Commercials Before Movies Is Worse Than Piracy

Being subjected to advertising is just something we’ve come to expect in our daily routines, and for most of us, we’ve become so conditioned to various advertising methods that we don’t even think twice about it. There is nothing wrong with advertising in and of itself. It’s how we learn about products, services and [...]

BluRay supporters camping out at Walmart trying to stop people from buying HD-DVD

How pathetic this guy's life must be? Spent 3 hours at Wal-Mart today. I stoped 11 out of 12 people from getting HD-DVD players. I will be spending a lot of time down thier the rest of this year. It is the best I can do to help the less tech savy not get screwed on this half-step format. One couple I talked too went straight over to the games [...]
