Friday, July 28th, 2006

Once again, I read another story about rampant deaths. Who is the culprit behidn these heinous deaths? The headline says it all: Sun kills 60,000… [Reuters.com] I say it’s well beyond the time to ban the blasted Sun…

Other ice cream thoughts…

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

You know, the whole Pepto-Bismal ice cream article got me thinking… what other delightfully odd ice cream concoctions would work?

Here it is, another Thursday. the day after a Wednesday release of a new XBOX Live Arcade game. This week’s edition is: Cloning Clyde. I’ve only played the demo version of the game, but it is more than enough for me to purchase the full version, which costs 800 Points. So, here’s the gist as […]

Need a penny? Sorry, I’m fresh out…

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

It looks like legislation has entered Congress to do away with the beloved penny. It seems someone tried to do this in the past, 2001 to be exact, and failed.
