Weird Wednesday August 26

Weird Wednesday August 26 2009


I'm wondering, if we go with Canadian-style public option health insurance, will we spend money researching things like this? Let's hope not. And on the Canadian-style thought, who really thinks of Canadian Bacon as the same as real bacon? Really, now. It's not. Do we want to change bacon?



Weird Tweets this week:


just alerted that my old boss [a US Congressman] confused 'Cialis' for 'Ambien' in a health care town hall address – Ooops! I think those two medications would be mutually exclusive for use.


Camaro owners can get a free Papa John's pizza today, seriously. -- Because, after all, sports car drivers are probably having trouble paying for food AND insurance!


Rick Pitino is talking to the media at 3 p.m., and no one knows why. -- Um, I'm sure he does.



Megan Fox kicked Jay-Z. WTF is #GiladShalit. A snow Leopard saw Catwoman steal Batman's iPhone Who's driving AT&T and Apple to success? -- This is a tweet composed of the top trending topics on twitter at the moment it was written. And you thought I had too much time on my hands!


Off the tweets...


Apparently, iPhones are starting to explode, all on their own. And here I thought AT&T couldn't move data fast enough to run the nuke program!



There's a headline on my page from Motley Fool, where I get all the investment advice I'll never use, that instructs me to “Take a moment to tally your cash.” Yeah, that'll take a moment. Only a slightly longer than it takes to count my income from blogging!

.

Fortunately, this doesn't look like it'll happen here anytime soon. As long as nobody pulls the cord that holds the moon close too tight!


Did you know that there's an investor named Guy Hands? I didn't, and so I thought this looked odd: Guy Hands in Talks for Wind-Farm Deal. It still looks weird.



That's what I've got this week...

  1. So I followed your "exploding iPod" link and then clicked through to where KIRO TV "investigated".

    Ya gotta love this... Jamie Balderas, of Arlington Washington was burned by her iPod. She's really mad that Apple isn't recalling iPods. Especially since, having been burned herself, she lets her five children sleep with theirs.

    Yeah. Because it'll be Apple's fault if her kids get hurt.

    *eyes roll*

  2. I don't get sleeping with an iPod--wouldn't you need to be wearing headphones for that to do any good? And what happens when you strangle? Is that Apple's fault too?
