Some Random Stuff

I haven’t done a “whole bunch of random links” post for maybe 6 months, mainly because I’ve gotten over the laziness that those post kind of require. However, since I’m stuck at a “100 pending posts” maximum imposed by WordPress, and since I have more stuff to show you, here’s what I’ve been looking at this week that, I feel, is deemed worthy of sharing.

The line-up for the Jon Stewart / Stephen Colbert rallies. I’m going, did I mention that? Yeah, and I even convinced the wife to go with! So awesome. We’ll bring binoculars, and I’ll take plenty of photos. Funny thing: until recently I thought they’d be on two different stages and I’d actually have to choose which rally to…rally behind. I’m glad I was confused. Or something to that effect.

 

50 Awesomely Nerdy Tattoos – #23 is the BOMB!

10 War Photographs That Change The World

10 Least Expensive Online MBA Degrees – The University of South Dakota (which is about an hour from my hometown) is on the list.

10 Most Notorious Suicide Cults in History – A bit morbid, but tis the season.

Some Amazing Animated Gifs From Popular & Classic Movies – These are simple, yet rather cool. I spent about an hour just watching them.

Deleted scene from Predators – I simply loved this movie. It was the first flick in maybe 10 years I saw twice in the theater.

Find out who unfriended you on Facebook – Let the passive aggression begin. Or not-so-passive. I finally stopped unfriending people after one girl I knew in grade school ruined it for me. I unfriended her, and she kept on friend requesting me. I think she must have thought it was a mistake or something…she didn’t understand the oh-so-complicated Facebook Unfriending process.  I finally re-friended her, but I hide her updates. Since I’m a paranoid delusionist and I never post real private stuff on Facebook, problem solved.

A List of Bucket List Sites…I guess someone’s bucket list item must have been to make a bucket list site better than other bucket list sites. I’m also guessing that more than one person had this same bucket list item, since there are enough bucket list sites to actually have a list of bucket list sites. Also, this sounded more clever in my head.

For Mothers Only – I can’t seem to embed this picture. It’s been on a bunch of sites the past 3 days, but it’s funny.

Random thought: As I write this, I just remembered there were several students at my college last night dressed in costume. And several seemed to forget two glaring facts: 1) They were very large, and 2) The school has a clearly stated dress code policy stating DO NOT SHOW YOUR ASSCHEEKS FROM THE BOTTOM HEM OF YOUR SKIRT (in so many words). And by several students, I mean 4. And thankfully all women, although it really wouldn’t have made much difference in the repulsion department. Bleah.

Procrastination Explanations – Why do you procrastinate by reading this instead of doing some actual work? Sponsored by Netflix, which actually had a clever part in the formation of the exercise.

I think that’s enough for now. That’s all the windows I had open when I started this post. So, enjoy, and I’ll see you at the rally tomorrow.

Yeah, this is probably not safe for work. It’s a very methodical list of how to dispose of a dead body, put to music. Enjoy.

New Coke (bottle)

I found it on Bits & Pieces. This appears to be a commercial-art project and not the real thing. The final-view on the video reminds me of a Mayan idol of a female figure. Just imagine that the figure has no legs. The bottle looks like it has abs and…lady-parts.

Cent

Bugloaf got put in the corner for a time out on Monday. That’s because I had over 100 posts waiting in the wings to kick off between now and the end of November, plus a smattering of posts to kick off later (like Jackie Chan’s and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays, along with my yearly Valentines Day video of Perfect Strangers). I’m trying to work my way up to 8-10 posts a day, and currently for October I’m up to 2, November up to 3.

When I tried to add more posts on Monday, I was hit with an error, “WordPress has a problem with some of your content. Please send us an email at this link and we’ll look into it.”. For starters, just freaking tell me what the problem is. Secondly, making me send you an email so you can take your happy time getting back to me is rather annoying…and it was indeed over 4 hours turnaround.

When WordPress finally got back to me, the reason my posting was halted was due to a 100 pending posts limit. I had never heard of this before, but it was likely buried inside one of the EULA-esque pages I had to click through in order to get the site up and going. The reason there is a 100 pending post limit is due to some spammers that were apparently abusing the system. Which to me makes no sense. A spammer, by definition, sends emails out to people. A blog requires someone to visit. Maybe a link in a spam-email directed someone to a spam-blog…but in this case, why have more than a few posts? Maybe I’m just not seeing it.

What really burns me is that the email reply from WordPress made me feel like I had done something wrong, and they backhandedly lumped me in with a bunch of low-life spammers. Seriously, look at my content for the past 4 1/2 years and you know this is an innocent blog, filled with funny links and pictures and an occasional rant like this one. Plus, I have no paid-for advertising on this site, just a couple restaurants and the R2KT link, and a couple blog rolls. That is it.

The silver lining is that, if I want to increase my posts per day, my stuff will have to be a lot more current. I can’t just rest on my long post queue very much. This will end up being a lot more time consuming, but so be it. It just messes up my whole Beautiful Mind / Rain Man setup I had planned out for November in particular. Eh, that’s life.

No, they didn’t really make a game to coincide with this weird Sean Connery flick. It’s made to look as if it was a game for the Amiga computer. Well done.

Back to the Future: The Game

I have mixed feelings…the dialog really needs to be tight to give this the right feel.

I don’t think our parents went through this “Remake Bonanza” that is happening with so many 1980’s properties these days, with the possible exception of the huge GI Joe toys from the 1960’s. In the 1980’s they became really tiny, and a new cartoon was created, based on their laser-gun wielding exploits. But can you see a Howdy Doody update happening in the mid-1970’s? Or The Wizard of Oz remade in the 1950’s? It didn’t happen. No one thought it could work, and unfortunately everyone now knows it does. You get nostalgia and a “new story” to bring in the next generation.

So, I have mixed feelings about the game. I guess I just hope they don’t completely mess it up. Still, it has to be better than the version that came out for the Nintendo Entertainment System:

One Hero Saving Another Hero

This story kind of gave me the chills. A minivan driver, who also happened to be an aerospace engineer, intentionally pulled in front of an out-of-control pickup truck (whose driver was semi-conscious), applied the brakes, was rear-ended, and brought both cars to a stop. I found it on Neatorama, but the full story is here. I’ve since printed out this story and pinned it on my wall. Just amazing…if I were to try this, I would very likely mess the whole thing up.

The semi-conscious driver had experienced a heart attack days earlier (without his knowing), affecting his cognizance. Otherwise, in his day-to-day life, the man is a Special Olympics and food-drive volunteer. So in reality, it was one hero saving another hero. Very cool.

Thus it was written

It has been brought to my attention recently that I don’t write nearly enough original things on this here Bugloaf. So…I have to come up with something.

I could talk about the weird medical things I have been going through the past two weeks, but that will dwindle my already minuscule audience.  (At least I got to use the word minuscule in a sentence.)

I could talk about my new-used car, but it would sound like bragging…even though it feels like I’m flying the Enterprise 1701-D everytime I drive it. Warp 7 ENGAGE! (Not bad for a V-6).

I could talk about my cats, my two cutesy wutsey wittle munchkin cats. They are still both socially retarded, meaning that one of them (Lila) will follow you everywhere…but you can’t touch her. She’ll sniff your hand, but that’s as close as you can get. And she doesn’t like treats (even roast beef or milk). The other (Holly) is starting to function a bit better, but she still doesn’t hang around long when two humans are in her vicinity. Unless treats are involved, because at least you can bribe Holly for affection.

There. Cats. So any cat haters are likely scared off at this point.

Anything else? I found out this week through some tweets back & forth that Jane Wiedlin from the Go-Go’s is a fan of the Green Bay Packers. May God have mercy on her soul. Sköl Vikings!

Oh, and I found out that working full-time and going to school four nights a week, four hours each night, well it sucks for lack of a more perfect term. I realize I wasn’t mature enough to get it done when I was in my 20’s, but I should have found a way. When I have kids, they’re going to a local community college for their Associates and staying at home, so I can make sure they get it done! Either that, or they are joining the military, which actually was a better choice for me than college at that stage in my life, my mid-20’s.

As it sits right now, I’m mostly happy. I have a great wife who is there to support me, and vice-a-versa. We don’t have a ton of luxuries in my life, but those we do have we greatly enjoy. Especially Tivo, because commercials kind of stink. We don’t have a data plan on our cellphones, we don’t have an HDTV, and we don’t have a current-generation game system…to my chagrin, because Epic Mickey and the new Goldeneye game for the Wii look SWEEEEET!

But, I digress. My wife and I are pretty happy, as I churn out posts on this here blog. Even if most of them are simply culled from other sites. By the way, if you have a blog and want to pull in new/original material, use StumbleUpon. What a wonderful thing that is.

Anyhow, there is my textual post. I hope you enjoyed it, or if you skipped past, I hope you enjoyed the Parkour Dog video. It’s rather cool.
