Rough Ride



Don't get on the wrong side of the NYPD (and note to NYPD person - you probably should check for passers by with video cameras before you try this again).

Reports are stating that the cop has been put on desk duty pending further enquiries, and there's also reports the guy on the bike actually got arrested and held for 26 hours after his little "accident".

Mrs Spitzer, Stay at Home

As me and Nick have been having a quick conversation over Lindsay's Tumblr post comments on the subject (I'm a fan of her punching him in the gut midway through the press conference), I thought it was only fair to post the actual video comments as well (and to be honest, the video quality of these posts are pretty darn good, so they spruce up the site a little).

Hold The Hookah; It Might Have Herpes

Nope, not more Spitzer jokes - Hookah Bars up around CSU appear to be the culprit in a spread of cold sores in the Fort Collins area. Just say no, it's the only way to go (or carry your own pipe around with you if you like...)

Bush Decides Law isn't for him - commutes Scooter's sentence

I'm surprised this didn't come out on Friday when it was guaranteed any sort of real news would be drowned out in the iPhone frenzy, but wait until today the President did.

In a move that didn't really surprise anyone, he found a way to prevent Scooter Libby going to jail, by commuting his sentence before he had to spend a day behind bars. This is a little less than giving him the full pardon (which is still an option at some point in the future, and I'm guessing it'll be sneaked in there) - he has a fine to pay, plus the conviction will remain on his record, but no jail time is no jail time. Guess it's ok to obstruct justice if you're doing it to protect the President and Cheney show.

Anyway, CNN has the details here if you care to read it all.

Paris? Not on this show

This has to be the best attempt at not covering the Paris "story" on TV over here, although I have a feeling the newscaster is on the brink of somekind of breakdown.... .

Breaking - Google Buys FeedBurner

Looks like this was just announced, although there had been a few rumours floating around, but Google went out and purchased Feedburner. The official announcement is here, and their VC view of the deal is here.

I use both Google (who doesn't these days) and Feedburner, not that it makes much difference, but I guess all my blog underlying technology is now on the same platform (written in Blogger, feed by FeedBurner - the little orange badge thing over on the left, and compulsive blog reading courtesy of Reader). Google, you complete me (actually, that's not true, until you decide to give me free computers, super fast fios like speeds of wifi everywhere I walk, and a chocolate digestive)

Topless Car Wash - The Aussie Way to Beat a Drought

So here's how Aussie business logic works - the country is running out of water, so the government bans washing your own car, so suddenly car washes get extra busy, so more car washes appear, and then you start losing trade coz there's plenty of competition. The answer - make your car wash topless, and offer lap dances while you wait.....

Sheila must be ecstatic at this one - Bruce has the cleanest car in the world.

Imus Dead!?

Not really, but Yahoo news posted this headline I presume to just get a lot of hits. Do they need them that bad? I know I do, but I get like 4 people looking at this site a day (and 3 of those are family).

Jesus had a son?

It seems like the Da Vonci code again, or maybe just James Cameron just pissed he's not getting another Oscar this year. Anyway, he's produced a documentary about the supposed burial site of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and their son. This would put a bit of a whole in the big resurection premise that Christianity is primarily based on.

No opinions from me until I see the documentary for myself.

Strangest News Story from Last Week

I know Britney shaving her head, Ryan O'Neill trying to kill his sun, and Bush thinking that somehow there were 30 days in February were all pretty good, but the winner goes to the police in Phoenix, who put a school in lockdown after one of the kids spotted Batman in the playground!

3 weeks of councelling, and he's straight? Yeah, right, whatever....

Local news today is covering the story of the disgraced minister Haggard - apparently, after only 3 weeks of councelling, he's now completely straight! Somehow I find this hard to believe - if he was strictly straight in the first place, what was he doing with a male prostitute? I'm sure it's easier to find female ones - it's not like you go out looking for one and come back with the other, then decide it's too far a trip back to get the one you really wanted. And 3 weeks of councelling turning you straight? Sure, that's believable.

What I don't really understand is the point to this whole story? First off, he cheated on his wife, which technically is the big deal in this whole situation. Whether it was with a man or woman, and whether he's gay or straight is pretty irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. At least in my opinion anyway. He basically preached to everyone about how they should live their life, and then didn't practise what he preached. Maybe small town America needs to hear that he's been "cured" of his gayness (somehow, Saved springs to mind - great film by the way if you haven't seen it - seeing Mandy Moore throwing her bible at her supposed wayward friend while trying to kidnap and convert her was a classic "I am FILLED with Christ's love! You are just jealous of my success in the Lord.")

Things are never quite as they seem on the Interweb

I know how some parents are a little scared of letting their kids out into the fake wild world of the internet, given the opportunity for not nice people to pretend they're someone or something else than they really are, and take advantage of their sweet and innocent kids. However, it's not always the kids who have to watch out. Over at the SFGate, there's this weird story about a little love triangle via the internet, which resulted in the only person who was telling the truth about themselves getting killed in an alleged rage of jealousy. Let that be a warning to you all (and just for the record, I look like my pic up there - maybe a little better shaven today, and a few more wrinkles around the eyes, but it is me - why would I fake a pic like that?).
