So This Is What A Train Wreck Looks Like

You know how,as a kid,when something scary or disgusting was up on TV,you'd cover your face with your hands but peek between your fingers?That's how I felt when I watched this:

Transcript(for those with iffy bandwith):
COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? Allow them to spend more, and put more money into the economy, instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

PALIN: That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it’s got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade — we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation.

That is Alaskan Governor and US Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin during an interview yesterday.Fine babe,particularly for a mother of five.But if they win,this lady would be second in command of a military with around 5,000 nuclear warheads.And her boss is an old man with a history of skin cancer.

Know fear.

From the Sunday edition of my favorite webcomic comes a truly evil sendup of both the current US financial crisis and the movie and song I love to hate :)

Goodness! I’m certainly quaking in my shoes! Shall I get back to this fellow? What shall I say?

Ah, I have it! Dear Ikemba: I’m so sorry that your career as a 419 fraudster didn’t work out the way you wanted. Best of luck in your new line of scam! Your friend, Jim.

Obviously,someone has been watching too many Nigerian movies.Well,I guess you have to give him points for trying standing out from the usual "I need help to smuggle money out of the country,send me your account details" crowd :)

Seriously though,how does someone with an IQ this low even learn to OPERATE a computer?Wanna bet that's actually his real name in there?At least I'm not named Ikemba :)

PS Did some Google-fu,and here is the full text of at least one of the emails

I felt very sorry and bad for you, that your life is going to end like this, I was paid to eliminate you and I have to do it within 10 days.

Someone you call your friend wants you dead by all means, and the person have spent a lot of money on this, the person came to us and told us that he wants you dead and he provided us your names, photograph and other necessary information we needed about you.

Meanwhile, I have sent my boys to track you down and they have carried out the necessary investigation needed for the operation, but I ordered them to stop for a while and not to strike immediately because I just felt something good and sympathetic about you. I decided to contact you first and know why somebody will want you dead. Right now my men are monitoring you, their eyes are on you, and even the place you think is safer for you to hide might not be.

Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? It is up to you. Get back to me now if you are ready to enter deal with me, I mean life trade, who knows, and I might just spear your life, $8,000 is all you need to spend. You will first of all pay $900 then I will send the tape of the person that want you dead to you and when the tape gets to you, you will pay the remaining $7100. If you are not ready for my help, then I will have no choice but to carry on the assignment after all I have already being paid.

Warning: do not think of contacting the police or even tell anyone because I will extend it to any member of your family since you are aware that somebody want you dead, and the person knows some members of your family as well.

For your own good I will advise you not to go out once it is 8pm until I make out time to see you and give you the tape of my discussion with the person who want you dead then you can use it to take any legal action. You can send the $900 to one of my local boy in Benin with this below information via western union or money Gram.

Receivers name. Christian Oforka.
Country. Benin.
City. Cotonou.
Question. Who made
Answer God.
Amount to be sent first $900

Good luck as I await your reply to this e-mail contact:

Ikemba Okoye.

Okay,I take it back.What points this guy gets for originality,he more than loses for grammar("I will spear you"),logic(crime boss/assassin rolled into one?For 8K?Ha!) and just.....AAAAARGGHHH.

This is what Nigeria's youth spends their time doing?We're doomed.

I need a drink.

Music Video Friday 8:We Remixed The Remix

It's not often you run into an artiste who turns you onto a whole new genre of music.Good thing too,music costs money.But for me it's happened.The genre:Mashups.The artiste:Girl Talk.

Mashups generally involve mixing up two or more songs to get something recognizable yet more than the sum of its parts.Popular songs include Boulevard of Broken Songs(Green Day/Oasis/Travis/Eminem/Aerosmith),Every Car You Chase(The Police/Snow Patrol) and Smack My Orinoco Flows Up(Enya/Prodigy).

Two or three songs is usually par for the course.This guy routinely mashes together TEN tracks to make one song.Not only that,but he makes albums of the stuff.And they're FUN!His latest album is named Feed The Animals and this is track 3, "Still Here".

He's offering the album up for download at his site for free if you are unable or unwilling to pay.Just enter $0.00 and download;it is a 100MB download.Site is

Don't say I never do anything for you:)

What Science Is Good For

Proving what things attract the opposite sex.Case in point:

Science Proves Exotic Cars Turn Women On


David Moxon subjected 40 men and women to the sounds of a Maserati, Lamborghini and Ferrari, then measured the amount of testosterone in their saliva. He found everyone had higher levels of the stuff -- a measure of their arousal -- after hearing the revving exotics, but the amount the women had was off the charts.

A Volkswagen Polo,on the other hand,actually reduced the amount of testosterone in their saliva.So now guys have yet another reason to court bankruptcy.

Me,I want a bicycle :)

In Case You Didn't Know

The Law of Common Sense:Never accept a drink from a urologist.
