What kind of party are they having?

That's pretty funny stuff. It's actually a modified video for Microsoft's Windows 7 Launch parties. So they are trying to generate buzz by having "I'm a PC" people promote their software with no compensation. BRILLIANT!

I really want to comment about how pathetic someone must be to need a how-to-video for having a party. It's just sad really. I wish someone would produce a video of someone's party they had from their mom's basement, complete with mom interupting them to do laundry.

I'm sure there are more videos out there, enjoy.

(Source was lots of places...Red Dirt Kings and Gizmodo.)

Even Hitler has something to say about the release...

Cash for Clunkers

Every time you put REAL numbers to a government spending plan you will get a scary answer.

So lets look at the cash for clunkers program…
A vehicle at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons a year of gasoline.
A vehicle at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year.
So, the average clunker transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.
They claim 700,000 vehicles – so that's 224 million gallons / year.
That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.
5 million barrels of oil is about one quarter of one day's US consumption.
And, 5 million barrels of oil at $75/bbl costs about $350 million dollars.
So, they used our tax money to spend $3 billion to save $350 million.

How good a deal was that ???
They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!

Swedish military bras burst, melt during 'rigorous exercise'

The Swedish armed forces have been hit by a major equipment problem, according to reports. Flimsy military brassieres are unable to stand up to the strains imposed when female Swedish troops perform "rigorous exercises", routinely bursting open or even catching fire - so forcing busty young conscripts to hurriedly strip off in the field.

She's only smiling in this picture because her bra is not melted on to her skin. WTH? Seriously, melting bras? I know these Swedish gals are hot but that is setting a new level for hot if they can melt bras with their exercise.

This thread on is definately worth perusing. It contains some images of what Swedish military gals might look like in bras.

Including Miss Sweden
, who we cannot confirm was ever a member of the Swedish Military.

Al-Qaida predicts Obama's fall by Muslim nation

CAIRO – Al-Qaida on Tuesday released a new 106-minute long video predicting President Barack Obama's downfall at the hands of the Muslim world. The Arabic-language video, entitled "The West and the Dark Tunnel," is part of series of messages by the organization marking the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

As in the past, al-Qaida attempted to conflate Obama with his predecessor, George W. Bush, who was widely disliked by Muslims for his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Many analysts believe that al-Qaida has been alarmed by Obama's comparative popularity in the Middle East, especially following his landmark speech to the Muslim world in Cairo in June.

"America has come in a new, hypocritical face. Smiling at us, but stabbing us with the same dagger that Bush used," said Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri in the message.

Does this mean you aren't as impressed by his ability to make speeches?

"Unfortunately for the Democrats, and judging by their first seven-and-a-half months at the helm of the sinking American ship, the prognosis doesn't look good," Adam Gadahn, also known as Azzam al-Amriki, (an American who grew up in southern California, converted to Islam and joined al-Qaida. He was charged with treason in 2006 and there is a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction) said.

We know what you mean ADAM. We here in America are concerned about our prognosis as well. You have little to worry about, when we find you we will probably kill you and you won't have to worry about our prognosis any more.

Kiss, Chili Peppers, LL Cool J nominated for hall

Kiss, LL Cool J and the Red Hot Chili Peppers could be among next year's inductees at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

"Could" is the operative word. I guess there is still a chance they might not be voted in. So reading this story kinda makes me wonder why it is a story at all? Each of these groups deserve entry on their own merits but I question the whole Hall of Fame for acts that are still performing and are not retired.

Carrie Underwood is being inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. Which has me wondering...isn't she a long, long way from being retired and perhaps her best work hasn't even been produced yet?
What's up with that?
