Manny a Dodger?

Not really sure? But something happened. I guess the Rays didn't get Bay. But it looks like the Manny boat set sail.

Are the Rays swarming?

Reports have the Tampa Bay Rays acquiring Jason Bay instead of the Red Sox.


Shark week picture of the day

As I am waiting for Manny news I might as well post a shark picture. This is the Greenland Shark, one of the largest sharks in the world. Not much is known about these shark. One remarkable feature about these fish is that even that they are incredibly slow moving they are able to catch fast moving seals. They have also been known to sit in the mouths of rivers and wait ambush style for caribou to swim across.

Picture of the day: Whale fart

Discovery News-Scientists have photographed a giant gas bubble emanating from a whale, suggesting that flatulence is just as common for ocean mammals as it is for humans and many other terrestrial animals. The picture, released last week by scientists from the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) in Tasmania, was taken by the captain of a U.S. research ship the Nathaniel B. Palmer, while on expedition between Marguerite Bay and Palmer Station, Antarctica. "The picture is of an Antarctic minke whale taken from the bow of a ship," said AAD principal research scientist Dr Nick Gales. "The white bits in the photo are pieces of ice-floe, the stream of pinky colour behind the whale is a faecal plume - a.k.a. "poo" - the large circle in the water is indeed the physical eruption of the whale's flatulence."

Well if you ever wondered what a whale fart looks like, I know I have (many times). Here you go. By the trail behind the whale, it appears this fart was a wet or juicy one. Usually resulting in some bonus material. For a whale this size it would probably require a case of Shitbegone.

Dumb ass of the day

Wow, this guy is really super dumb.

Driver abuses speed limit and himself

A TERRITORY man filmed himself speeding at 150km/h while masturbating at the wheel of his drug-laden car, a court heard.

His Holden SV6 was allegedly laden with 5kg of drugs, including two cannabis plants resting on the back seat, the court was told. Brendon Alan Erhardt, 39, was granted bail so he could marry his girlfriend of six months before he goes to jail. Prosecutor Sergeant Melinda Edwards said in court the father-of-three told police he "had masturbated while driving'' just before he was stopped for speeding on the 130km/h stretch of the Stuart Hwy. "(He) also video recorded himself masturbating while travelling at a speed of 150km/h.'' Sgt Edwards said Mr Erhardt -- who was disqualified from driving -- also told officers his act was "not dangerous'' as the "only person he could hurt was himself''. Darwin Magistrates Court heard Mr Erhardt was stopped by NT police 25km south of Daly Waters on July 16 for allegedly speeding at 147km/h on his way home from Adelaide. Police noticed he was "visibly agitated'', and when they told him they were going to search his Holden sedan, he said "go right ahead'', Sgt Edwards said. It is alleged that officers found 4.96kg of cannabis hidden in a blue esky in the boot, two cannabis plants on the back seat, two drug pipes and a loaded .22 rifle.

So I get the whole video taping yourself speeding thing. If you go on youtube, you can find pro athletes that do that. I get having the drugs in the car, because how else are you going to move drugs. But seriously, masturbating in the car, and filming it? I once thought driving and masturbating, but deemed it was impossible. To many distractions. The last thing I want when I am doing that is a kid in the back of a mini-van staring at me, asking his mom what I am doing. Bonus this guy had pot plants in the back seat as a audience.

The Manny watch is on

The trade deadline is today, and its possible that Manny Rameriz may be traded. I don't want to see him go, but if the Sox are going to keep playing like they are they may as well built for next year.

And Manny for Favre is a horrible deal.

NASA employees gone wild

So I got some emails last week about the whole Edgar Mitchell ordeal. I didn't want to write about it because it wasn't really breaking news. Many astronauts have claimed to see other life out there, and Edgar Mitchell has been saying this for years.

Now yesterday another high ranking NASA employees comes out and says not only is there life out there, but there has been joint space mission with the CIA and 8-9 ft high aliens. Wow!

Well I can't quote the source, I don't have permission. But you can READ IT HERE.

But the jist of it is, former Space Shuttle Fleet member Clark C. McClelland saw on a monitor two large aliens in the payload of the space shuttle. Outstanding.

Chumpsford Reality

So yesterday I caught the second episode of Mtv's 'Made' that was filmed in my High School. And for whoever left a comment last time I talked about show Made, and didn't know what it was. Its called google. Try it out, I use it all the time.

A couple observations that I made from both episodes. It seems not much as changed in good ol CHS. The girls still don't put out, the guys are still in to themselves, and Swiss is still fat as hell. But I wonder why Mtv picked CHS to do 2 episodes of Made? No other school have they done 2 episodes at. Did they find the hot spot for kids that need desperate help? Are they just trying to make fun of us? Who knows.

I think if I was still at CHS, and needed to be 'Made', I think I would have went the route of Pro Bass Fisherman. Which would be sort-of ironic, because bass fishing is like Nascar and only Rednecks get it. And me and Rednecks don't interact to well.

But my main point is, what if Mtv didn't use CHS kids as testrats for their Made show. What if they did something like Laguna beach or Two-A-Days. Where they would follow around a group of cool kids and see what they did. Like on Laguna Beach, a group of friends would all go out for dinner together at a fancy restaurant. While in CHS version a group of kids would built a fire in the middle of the woods and drink Molson Ice. I think it would be hilarious watching the camera crew try and follow the kids when the cops come to break up the party, and everybody scatters in the woods like buck shot.

If this happened when I was at CHS, I know I wouldn't be on the show. I was not, and still not cool. However, my name would probably be mentioned all the time, because everybody just used me to party at my house. I wonder what Mtv would have called the show? Fish & Game?

Picture of the day

Good week for strange animal stories. This unknown creature washed up on Montuak Island, NY this week. The creature is still unknown. I would have to guess its a dog.

This picture reminds me of Cuddles that washed up on Long Beach, CA a few years ago. Which turned out to be a seal.

Whats up with the Denver Airport?

The Denver International Airport (DIA) is just one of those things that I know there is something wrong, but I just can't put my finger on it. Everything about the place is just sinister. I think there is something underneath the airport, but what, I do not know.

First the history. It was built back in 1995 on 53 sq miles. There was never a reason giving why the airport was built, because Denver already had a perfectly fine airport to begin with (Stapleton). The really only complaints about the old airport were that it was noisey. Which airport isn't loud? DIA actually has fewer runways than the old airport. It just has more free space. The originally budget was set at 1.7 billion. The final budget was over 3 billion more. It also was built in the middle of no where.

The area where they build it was mostly flat land between mountains. However, they moved 110 million cubic yards of dirt around. Why did they move so much dirt around? Because the original design called for 5 large building. After construction they said the designs were all wrong. Instead of destroying the buildings, they buried them.

The amount of fiber optics wire used, is longer than the Nile River. The internal jet fuel capacity is 2.73 million gallons. This is enough for a couple of airports. The granite that was used on the floors was shipped from all over the world. Seems extensive for a project that was 3 billion over budget. There is 19 miles of underground roads. The roof of the DIA is made out of 15 acres of teflon coated woven fiber glass. It reflects 90% of the sun and does not give off heat signatures. This makes it impossible to see inside with radar. Check out the design of the runways, what do you think they look like.

That's the construction. Now inside. The really creepy things in there are the murals. Full of death, slaughter, and genocide. Not really the best thing for nervous fliers.

Above is suppose to be one giant mural. I did my best trying to put the two together. On the right side you have kids from all over the world giving weapons to a German boy who is turning the weapons into something else. All over the body of a dead solider. On the left hand side you have a Nazi looking solider with a sword that swiped through a city and is stabbing a white dove.
The sword is about to strike the children that are trying to sleep. Strange.
Another mural. However, I have been told this one has been recently painted over. I guess people complained it was too racist. This one depicts cities burning in the background. With coffees of a white, Indian, and black person in the front. Around the coffin you have wildlife and a mix culture of people. One thing to note about this picture is the Mayan girl holding the tablet which translates into the world will end in 2012.

Why would someone paint stuff like this? I am not sure. The artist is a famous Chicano painter.
Some info about him can be read here. Then you have this capstone. Some say this is Masonic symbolism. I don't really see any free mason connection, but I will say its there. What is strange is the New World Airport Commission. There is no, or has ever been any New World Airport Commission. Why would they say that there is?

There are gargoyles throughout the airport.Dzit Dit GaII is written on the floor. Translation, White Mountain.

Other interesting items:
  • The Queen of England has reportedly been buying up property in Colorado under a proxy.
  • This part of the terminal is called The Great Hall, which is known in Masonic lingo as their meeting hall.
  • It was build on Native American burial grounds, and there has been reported ghost sightings.
  • Phil Schneider, one of the government's most famous whistle blowers said that there was a base underneath the airport. Shortly before he was murdered.
To sum it up. You have a airport build for no solid reason. In the middle of no where, and a vast amount of land surrounding it. There are underground buildings and tunnels that the public can not see. You have the structure made out of radar proof material. Inside the building there are clues about genocide and the rebirth of man kind through destruction. Hmmm....Maybe I am just paranoid but I really think this airport is more than an airport.

Is there an actually market for this?

Pregnant Women Charged with Prostitution

By KSPR News
Two of the women arrested in a pregnant prostitution ring in Camden County have been charged. Camden County’s prosecutor charged 18 year old Alexandra Wells and 20 year old Allysia Waldrop with prostitution. They were arrested as part of an undercover sting operation conducted at a Lake Ozark area hotel. The pregnant women are accused of advertising prostitution on an internet advertising site. Charges are pending on two other women.

I feel like I am out of the loop on this. Not like I was ever in the loop, but are there people out there that want pregnant prostitutes? I can see the dominatrix, the school girl/teacher thing, the bad girl, and everything else a ho does to sell herself. I am just not feeling the preggo aspect. I am sure there are some sickos out there that are into this shit, but I think this is gross. At least for the prostitutes they don't have to worry about birth control.

Props to their pimp that found a niche in the market.

Laws to protect the stupid

In July of 2001 off the coast of Australia a whale died and was floating in a popular harbor. The dead whale attracted numerous large white sharks to feed off it. Since it occurred right off a major port, many people were drawn to the carcass to watch the sharks feed. However, some people took it a little to far. A couple people thought it was a good idea to stand on the dead whale and pat the white sharks as they ate. This prompted Australia law makers to consider making laws "to protect people who are to stupid to protect themselves".

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — Australia may change laws "to protect people too stupid to protect themselves" after sightseers clambered on a floating dead whale and patted great white sharks eating the carcass, a senior official said Tuesday.

South Australian state Environment Minister Iain Evans said he will ask his department to consider regulations preventing people from coming within 109 yards of a dead whale. At present, the law only keeps people that distance from a live whale.

Evans said he was shocked at the disrespect the tourists showed for their own safety when they were caught on film this week patting the sharks near Cape Jervis, 60 miles south of Adelaide.

"I am also appalled by the bizarre behavior of walking across the back of dead whales or, for that matter, patting a great white shark while it is feeding," Evans said.

"These creatures are not toys. In the case of the great white, they can be extremely dangerous and it is clear the state government will need to look at changing the law in order to protect people too stupid to protect themselves," he added.

Now I would never recommend getting close to any feeding sharks, but the danger was probably not as serve as some would think. Sharks usually get locked in to a particular food source, and only have eyes for that food source, at that time. They are not the merciless killers that they are made out to be. For example, tiger sharks will travel to particular island when they know sea birds chicks will be making their first attempts at flight. They wait for the novice birds to land in the shallows, and then gobble them up. During this time sea turtles, the tiger shark favorite food, will swim right past the tiger sharks without being noticed.

Its also been noticed that white sharks that are feeding on seals will pass up on penguins that are living on the same beach as the seals.

So as it may have been dangerous to stand on the dead whale. I believe that the white sharks would have been content on strictly feeding on the whale carcass. But I always thought the 'law to protect stupid people from themselves' was funny.

Hot pursuit of the Yeti

Hot on the heels of the ‘Mande Burung’ Sushanta Talukdar Locals in Meghalaya’s Garo Hills claim they have sighted a ‘Yeti’-like creature.

Guwahati: The Meghalaya government has been trying to verify claims by local residents of the State’s Garo Hills that they have sighted the ‘Mande Burung,’ a hairy, ape-like giant creature resembling the ‘Yeti’ which is said to inhabit the Himalayan region.

Meghalaya Chief Minister Don Kupar Roy told The Hindu on Saturday that some people of the Garo Hills had been claiming that they sighted the unknown creature.

Figures I write this morning how bigfoot was not in the news, and then BLAMMO. A bigfoot story, well actually a yeti story. I guess if I have been reading The Hindu more I should have known about it. But The Hindu is not really high on my suggested reading list. I always believed that if bigfoot/yeti was going to be found it will be in the Himalaya mountains.

Shark week picture of the day

Really impressive picture.

Shark Week

So as I mentioned before, this week is shark week. So I thought I would try and do some educating. And as a bonus try and do a cool shark picture of the day.

Its a myth that sharks are only found in salt water. There are a few that are found in freshwater. Even in the US. There is a report that someone was attacked in Lake Michigan back in 1947. I could not find any documentation of this, but it is well know that bull sharks have been found in the Mississippi as far up as Illinois.

So here are some freshwater shark ID charts. So if you are in freshwater and are getting attacked. Take a minute and try and identify the shark, before you run and scream out of the water.

Cut Manny some slack, he is a side show freak

All I am reading this morning is how Manny Ramirez need to be traded. Its in every paper. I think Dan Shaughnessy is in heaven. He can now write a anti-Manny article for the rest of the year.

But people need to lay off Manny. He is not like you and me, or well I hope not.
Manny has 6 toes, and is a circus freak. This should explain all his antics.If you click on the picture you can get a closer look.

Picture of the day

So yesterday my mom came to visit me, and we went out to lunch. It was a nice afternoon, so after lunch we took a stroll down by the waterfront. We stop in front of the aquarium and admired the harbor seals. Being in a field that relates to animal welfare I noticed that the shark bait enclosure looked a little too small for all the seals that were in there. I thought to myself, they must get really bored in there.

Then I saw this picture in UK Metro. This captured beluga whale fights boredom by blowing bubble rings. And who thought marine mammals were dumb?

Crypto News

If I could I would write about cryptozoologic news every day. But is the discovery of a new manta ray really blob worthy? It not like the new ray is as cool as this picture of a giant one caught in 1933.
If there were stories popping up about bigfoot eating through people's trash everyday, than I would write about it. But bigfoot has been somewhat in hiding recently, and there isn't much to report. Useless you want to say that this recent report out of Bay City Michigan is actually bigfoot, which its not.

But I do have two new pieces of evidence that I find very interesting. The first comes out of China, and it is a mutant pig of some sorts. I don't think its a new species, maybe a hybrid or a mutation. But it is interesting. The locals are calling a pigmonkey. The story is here. But it is in Chinese.

To me this is obvious its the manbearpig offspring.

Next is some pictures of lake and sea monster. A area that I am very familiar with. There is a website out there that is claiming to have footage of such animals. There are two short clips on there that you can watch. To view the full clips you have to buy them. I have said it many times, if someone is trying to sell you something than it is not real. They are just trying to make a buck.

The website is, and you can watch the videos for yourself. The video on the right is fake. It is a CGI. Very easy to tell. The animal does not make the water ripple when it emerges, total fake. However, the video on the left is some what interesting. Its not a CGI, and from what I can tell it is something living. It also appears to be mammal. Towards the end of the clip you can see it exiting water through a nostril or blow hole. A short portion of the clip can be found on youtube, and this is it.

Its fairly decent footage. But I really can't take it too seriously because the person is asking for money.

Friday picture of the day

Have a good weekend.

This weekend is the Lowell Folk Festival

A festival that I will not be going to.

The largest free folk festival in the nation is happening once again this summer, from July 27-29, 2007 in Lowell, Massachusetts. The Lowell Folk Festival® has brought an international array of folk music, ethnic foods, craftspeople and artisans to New England every summer for more than 20 years.

“It’s a terrific event,” says Bernie Lynch, Lowell City Manager. “Fans of every kind of music flock to the

Festival. We have visitors who come again and again. Since the Festival lasts three days, they want to see as much of it as they can.” The Folk Festival has also been rated one of the “Top 100 Events in the U.S.” by the American Bus Association, a major tourism organization.

While holding fast to its American folk roots, the Festival also showcases the folk music traditions of other cultures. “We’re keeping the beat,” says Michael Creasey, Superintendent of Lowell National Historical Park. “You can tap your toes to Cajun swing, Latin timba, Irish fiddle, the blues, and more. You can even dance through the streets with a Brazilian Band.”

City of Lowell
I know someone will call me at any minute asking if I am going to go to this stupid thing. And the answer is always the same. No. Not until they move it from Lowell.

I think these guys hang out at the Old Court.

How many kids in the Congo did I kill?

Console war reaches past the couch and into the Congo, claims report.

Has the video game industry dug up its very own blood diamond?

According to a report by activist site Toward Freedom, for the past decade the search for a rare metal necessary in the manufacturing of Sony's Playstation 2 game console has fueled a brutal conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

At the center of the conflict is the unrefined metallic ore, coltan. After processing, coltan turns into a powder called tantalum, which is used extensively in a wealth of western electronic devices including cell phones, computers and, of course, game consoles.

Allegedly, the demand for coltan prompted Rwandan military groups and western mining companies to plunder hundreds of millions of dollars worth of the rare metal, often by forcing prisoners-of-war and even children to work in the country's coltan mines.

"Kids in Congo were being sent down mines to die so that kids in Europe and America could kill imaginary aliens in their living rooms," said Ex-British Parliament Member Oona King.

My guess is that I killed three kids. I went through 4 playstations 2, until I releazied that I could fix them myself. They weren't the most durable of electronics. The "disk reading error" was a killer, until it was found out that the internal tray just needed some lube.

Its a shame that so many Congo kids had to die for my entertainment. I am sure they would have like a PS2 for themselves. But, the whole lack of electricity probably would have been more of a bummer.

How to stick it to the man

Man cuts off own head with chainsaw after flat is earmarked to be bulldozed by developers

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 3:00 PM on 14th July 2008

A ‘vulnerable’ man cut off his own head with a chainsaw after being ordered to move out of his home to make way for developers, police believe.

David Phyall’s severed head was found beside the power tool inside his housing association flat shortly after receiving his eviction notice.

Detectives were today investigating the possibility that the 58-year-old killed himself rather than leave his home of eight years.

Truly remarkable story. Guy doesn't want to move, so he says F You, I'll cut off my head! Like that is going to stop them demolishing his house. They probably demolished even quicker than if he still had a head.

In all seriousness, how do you cut off your head with a chainsaw? This is some Houdini shit. I don't even think I could make it through my leg with a chainsaw, and this guy did his head. He must have been both ambidextrous and double jointed. Or Mr. Wizard and created some gadget.

Major props to this guy. He doesn't joke around. Not like some guys who suck at suicide.

Police ticket car with dead person sitting in it

The vehicle was parked in an industrial area near Pico Rivera. There are no signs of foul play and the identity of the dead man, in his 70s, has not been released.
An elderly man was found dead late Tuesday in a parked car that had been ticketed earlier in the day on a street in an unincorporated industrial area near Pico Rivera.

A passerby noticed the man in the driver's seat of the black Lincoln Town Car near Peck and Rooks roads about 7:50 p.m. and notified employees at a nearby truck shop.

A maintenance worker from the shop who went to investigate said a parking ticket on the car was marked as being written about 11 a.m., said Chantelle Amaya, assistant manager at L.A. Freightliner. "The poor man was out there all day," Amaya said. Amaya said workers at the shop called for help after knocking on the window of the locked car and getting no response. Authorities were not immediately able to say whether the man was in his car at the time the ticket was issued or if he had returned to it later. Street signs forbid parking on that side of the street from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays to allow street cleaning, and overnight parking is prohibited.

This story once again proves my point. The only requisite you need to be a police officer is the ability to taser someone. Why? Because this same thing happened to me. Well not with the dead person.

In a one year span my car was stolen three times. All from the exact same spot, and all on Tuesday nights. My car was parked right next to the State House. There are cameras pointing at directly where my car was stolen from, and each time I suggested that maybe someone should look at the video tape to see the guy breaking into it. I wasn't trying to show anyone up, or try and be Colombo or Magnum P.I. I was just thinking that my car keeps getting stolen and its freaking annoying. But the great minds at the Boston Police department shrug their shoulders at my idea, and said that the State House is the State Police jurisdiction. And they couldn't call over since they were too busy to solving crimes.

This gets me back to the ticket on the car. The first time my car was stolen is was recovered in Everett. Whoever stole the car took all four tires. So the car had a broken steering column and was on 4 cinder blocks. What do the fine police in Everett do? Instead of investigating why a car was missing tires and had a broken steering column they decide to ticket my car for being parked to far away from the curb. A $10 ticket.

Whenever I tell people this story they laugh. Obviously, since it is a funny story. But in all honesty, this is scary shit. These are the people that are paid to protect and serve you, and direct traffic when there is any minor construction project on any road. But most police officers are knuckleheads, and they only became a officer because they couldn't do anything else.

Am I a douchebag?

This is a internal battle that I struggle with a lot. There is nothing I hate more than douchebags. They are worse than criminals, people who like America Idol, the US government, and the NY Yankees. But most NY Yankees fans are douchebags so it works out well. Why do I hate them so much? Because they deprive America of its greatest resource. Hot Chicks.

I think I may have some douche traits, which puts me on the fence or not if I am becoming one. I put product in my hair. Not the kind you buy in the supermarket, but the kind you only find in salons. I look good without a shirt on, so if a opportunity pops up. I lose the shirt. I tend to dance with chicks. I can't not stress this enough, only with chicks. And I tend to find myself drawn to really hot and crazy chicks.

Is this all bad? I am not sure? I do think I have enough goofiness still left inside me to fight through this. Sort-of like being bite by a ware wolf. I am not howling at the moon yet, but noticing hair is growing where it shouldn't.

Fortunately I found this list of 69 ways to tell if your a douchebag. And I think I can safely say that I am not a douchebag. Some may disagree. But here are some of my favorites from the list.

  • 2.) You Refuse To Wear T-Shirts Since They Are "Un-Collar-Poppable"
  • 9.) You Think Dane Cook Is God
  • 12.) You Order Salad As An Entree
  • 14.) You Start Fights Over The Best Brand Of Whey Protein
  • 19.) You Mooch Off Your Parents And Still Treat Them Like Crap
  • 22.) You Prominently Display Condoms In Your Room
  • 26.) You Refer To Your Myspace Page As "Pimped Out"
  • 31.) You've Ever Worn Just A Wife Beater Anywhere
  • 34.) You've Ever Complimented Another Guy On How Ripped His "Pecs Look"
  • 36.) You've Ever Purchased Pre-Ripped Jeans Solely Because You Love The Pre-Ripped Look
  • 40.) You've Ever Taken A Picture Of Yourself Shirtless For The Purpose Of Distributing It On The Internet (my favorite one)
  • 50.) You Check Out Your "Guns" In The Reflection Of Parked Car Windows
  • 51.) The Name Of Your Car Is Pasted Across The Windshield
  • 59.) You Have Pictures Of Muscular Guys In Your Room And Justify It By Saying, "Yo dude, it's just for motivation, bro," And No One Questions You Because You're Being Completely Honest
  • 68.) You Always Do The Hand-Shake-Hug Even With People Who You Probably Shouldn't
After reading this list I think my roommate displays many of these qualities.
