Best Pilot Ever!

Everything about the fate of US Airways Flight 1549 seemed like a million-to-1 shot — a flock of birds crossing a jetliner's path and taking out both engines, a safe landing in the Hudson River.

It was a chain of improbability. Birds tangle with airplanes regularly but rarely bring down commercial aircraft. Jet engines sometimes fail — but both at once? Pilots train for a range of emergencies, but few, if any, have ever successfully ditched a jet in one of the nation's busiest waterways without any life-threatening injuries.

AMAZING! is really all I have to say. I mean this pilot had the wits and skills to land a plane on the river, get everyone out of the plane safely and double check the aircraft to make sure he got everyone off. Another fine example of a hero.

Slow on posts for today

I have a kid with wisdom teeth coming out today and two kids heading off to church camp this afternoon. Maybe my perverted partner will post up some NEWS. Any way check back next week for more posts.

Sam is going to stay

NORMAN -- Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford will return to Oklahoma for the 2009 season, he announced Wednesday.

College is fun. Being a kid is fun. And Sam is going to enjoy the fun for another year. His parents did a great job with him. Have fun Sam.

Patrick McGoohan, actor, dead, 80, illness

LOS ANGELES – Patrick McGoohan, the Emmy-winning actor who created and starred in the cult classic television show "The Prisoner," has died. He was 80.

McGoohan won two Emmys for his work on the Peter Falk detective drama "Columbo," and more recently appeared as King Edward Longshanks in the 1995 Mel Gibson film "Braveheart."

I remember him best as the cold, calculating Warden in Escape from Alcatraz.

Atheists want God stricken from inaugural oath

WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama wants to conclude his inaugural oath with the words "so help me God," but a group of atheists is asking a federal judge to stop him.

California atheist Michael Newdow sued Chief Justice John Roberts in federal court for an injunction barring the use of those words in the inaugural oath.

Newdow and other atheists and agnostics also want to stop the use of prayers during the inaugural celebration.

I say, tell them to go to hell. Wait...that won't work. How about f@#% off then?

What ever happened to personal liberties? I don't ask them to do anything (except the short request above). Which they are free to ignore, like I'm going to ignore their lawsuit.

In related news...

The Bible upon which President Abraham Lincoln was sworn in for his first inauguration is displayed at the Library of Congress in Washington December 23, 2008. On January 20, 2009, President-elect Obama will take the oath of office using the same Bible Lincoln used.

Ricardo Mantalban, actor, dead, 88, old age

LOS ANGELES – Ricardo Montalban, the Mexican-born actor who became a star in splashy MGM musicals and later as the wish-fulfilling Mr. Roarke in TV's "Fantasy Island," died Wednesday morning at his home, his family said. He was 88.

My family watched the hell out of Fantasy Island.

And how could you forget this?

Remember this guy? He's done with his prison sentence

MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- What to do with an aging, all-but-forgotten former military strongman who has served his time but is also a prisoner of war?

Noriega, who was captured in Panama by U.S. military forces, completed his prison sentence for drug trafficking and money laundering in September 2007 but remains imprisoned until the courts can decide where he should go.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Cronin said that the government has been asked to send Noriega to France and that there is nothing in the Geneva Conventions to prevent that.

Noriega is 74. He was treated in prison for prostate cancer and suffered a stroke. He also claims to have found God.

I didn't know God was lost, or I would have helped look for him.
So do we send him to his almost certain death (eating French prison food) or to his almost certain death (Panamanian prison and a fair trial followed by a first class hanging).

'Marilyn Monroe' hormone discovered

SCIENTISTS have identified the Marilyn Monroe hormone that is linked to an hour-glass body shape in women, and also an increased desire to trade-up to new men.

Women who have high levels of oestradoil also show elevated confidence and a greater inclination to have sex outside of their current relationship, according to the US-based research.

You all know a woman like this. I've known a few in my days. None of which would have had anything to do with me.

Thou shalt not infringe on the Idol trademark

AUSTIN – "American Idol" wants an Austin strip club to take it off. The company that owns the popular television show sued in federal court to stop the weekly "Stripper Idol" contest at Palazio Men's Club. FremantleMedia North America also wants to seize Palazio's profits from the amateur stripping contest.

In its lawsuit against Palazio, FremantleMedia calls "Stripper Idol" a trademark violation that could mislead the public to think the TV show sponsors the event, The Dallas Morning News reported in Tuesday editions.

Oh sure, I'm thinking most reasonable people would think a big time international television production would sponsor a stripping contest in a dirty little Texas town. But we are talking about Texans and they are easily duped into believing the absurd,
like their sports teams are the finest in the universe,
the state of Texas is the cat's ass to live in,
that their state should not be "messed with",
and their young ladies are prettier than the young ladies
in Oklahoma.

So on those merits the lawsuit should proceed.

College Humor posts up transcripts from Tebow's chat board

Tim Tebow Starts A Chat Room
by Pat Stansik

Good work boys

A GROUP of firefighters have been branded the world’s worst after their own fire station burned to the ground.

All six of the station’s fire engines perished in the £3 million blaze in Syke, northern Gemany and it took 250 fireman from neighbouring towns to finally get the inferno under control.

Training exercise or bad wiring? I wonder if it was just the grease cooking the fish and chips catching fire?
How about that photo?

WTF Game Show?

Another gem from our Asian friends. Seriously WTF! They got some wack shizzle on tv over there. This show is set in the library, and they do some mean stuff to the guy who gets the skull n crossbones card.

Remember global warming?

A sign shows the temperature on the Ft. Wainwright army base in Fairbanks, Alaska.

No, that's not normal.

Here's hoping all you boys and girls can stay warm.

A lot of people thought she'd make a good president

WASHINGTON – Secretary of State appointee Hillary Rodham Clinton intervened at least six times in government issues directly affecting companies and others that later contributed to her husband's foundation, an Associated Press review of her official correspondence found.

The overlap of names on former President Bill Clinton's foundation donor list and business interests whose issues she championed raises new questions about potential ethics conflicts between her official actions and her husband's fundraising. The AP obtained three of the senator's government letters under the Freedom of Information Act.

Surprised? I'm not. The Clintons have definately "worked" the system.
$453 million in funds is a lot for a couple of nice double wides and some display cases. And they are building "the library" in a state they don't even call home any longer. Remember, they are New Yorkers now.

Amateur texter makes dad say, "WTF"

Greg Hardesty didn't LOL when he got his teen daughter's cellphone statement.

All he could think was "WTF?"

The California man's 13-year-old daughter, Reina, racked up an astonishing 14,528 text messages in one month. The online AT&T statement ran 440 pages.

I say amateur because my daughter has done that, twice. And with 3 teenagers on my cellular account my cell phone bill tops 600 pages easily on an average month. You can slow the texting down with AT&T's "Parental Control" but you are only curtailing your teen's out going messages, they still receive the incoming ones.

Do the math, or even better let someone else...

WTH? How come I can't get these jobs?

AS terms and conditions of employment go, they're hard to beat and are sure to have job hunters across the world updating their CVs (Resumes).

Tourism Queensland has called the position of caretaker for the reef's beautiful Hamilton Island a "once in a lifetime" opportunity as it searches the world for the right candidate.
The live-in position requires posting a weekly blog, creating photo diaries and video updates to let the world know about the unique life on the island. But that is only when there is time in the busy schedule of sailing, kayaking, snorkelling, diving, picnics, bushwalking and more.

Living in "Blue Pearl", a three-bedroom modern home on the privately-owned island, the caretaker will have their own private plunge pool and spa with stunning views over the reef, large balconies, sun lounges and a "traditional Aussie barbeque". There will also be access to a computer and the internet to complete assignments, as well as transport around the island and ferries to take trips to the north-east coast of Australia.

That job is barely better than mine, so I'm not going to bother with applying.
They are only offering 100,000(US) for that job?
I wouldn't do it for anything less than...hell I'll do it for free. I wonder if they are willing to negotiate?
You know there is some idiot out there who said, "the job wasn't very challenging."

You are DOOMED, and you are all going to DIE!!!

Your cabinets are always there for you, faithfully storing whatever you cram into them. But "out of sight, out of mind" can end up meaning "out of date" — and that's just one of the unhealthy situations that could be developing behind those closed doors. Mold may be growing. Poisons may be lurking. Accidents may be waiting to happen.

I'm going to write an article on how many ways your car can kill you if you are stupid and use it improperly. I think I'll title it, YOUR AUTOMOBILE IS A DEATH TRAP!. Yeah, then MSNBC will publish it and I'll be a nationally syndicated writer.
I wonder if I should use a spell checker?

Study: Ticketing rises in slump

The economy is in the toilet. So do yourself a favor and ease up on the accelerator.

That's the indirect message of a recent study by two economists, who found that when government revenues dry up, police write more speeding tickets. After analyzing 14 years of data in North Carolina, the pair found that for every 1 percent drop in government revenue, the number of traffic tickets issued per capita increases by 30 percent the following year.

This was evident last Thursday morning on Stubbman on the way into Norman North High School. Eight of Norman's finest were writing tickets to students unlucky enough to be violating the speed limit. One of which was my lead footed daughter. Fifteen over, 141$ cha-ching. They were writing the tickets as fast as they could.
