Magic Birthday

So can someone please explain to me what magic happens on my 30th Birthday that makes my insurance premium drop $600? That's almost 50%! What the heck is that? I mean, I'll welcome it with open arms, but I'm just not sure what will change between the time I go to bed on June 8th this year and awake on June 9th. Will I even recognize myself in the mirror anymore? Will Leslie still love me? Man, I wasn't too worried about this 30th Birthday thing before but now...I don't know. Do the insurance companies know something that I don't? Is it a rite of passage?

And why is the magic birthday 27 for women? Why does the magic work at different ages for different sexes?

I must noodle this.

Job Opening -- Work From Home!

So I have a job opening in the Tech Division at TADOnline for someone that has a good phone presence and some technical skills. Its a Customer Support job with some Quality Assurance responsibilities rolled in.

You work from home. We provide you with an VOIP phone and computer, all you need is high speed Internet access, which we also will pick up the tab for.

Anyone know anyone that might be interested? You can have them email me at if you don't want to write in the comments.

Check this video out from the Daily Show. If you don't know what is going on with Jeff Gannon/James Guckert, you are in for a surprise.

Make sure you watch the whole thing.

Follow The Money

In follow up to what I posted yesterday about the lack of actual trained troops. It's now official:

Pentagon Admits Iraqi Troop Lack

Kinda funny how all of the criticism before the election is now being proved afterwards. You all did see the memo's about the warnings to the FAA and Condi six months before 9-11?

Sweet Incompetence

Two stories that I thought were funny in a sad sad way. The first, regarding our excellent mass media:

Nuke Plants

And the second, regarding the number of Iraqis we have trained as a police force:

Can't Count

I mean really, if we really had some 150,000 trained Iraqi police officers I would think the insurgency wouldn't be having such a hayday.

Yay SuperBowl!

Thought I'd tell all you that aren't coming to the party what we will be eating. I am preparing the Beer Can Chicken, smoked ribs, a seven layer dip with seven layers this time (last year I forgot two layers), and if I feel particularly ambitious, pulled pork. I just finished the seven layered dip and need to move on to the pulled pork if I plan on actually going forward with it today. It has to stay in the smoker for at least six hours.

Aww crap, I just realized kickoff is at 6:30pm. There goes the pulled pork plan. :(

Here is to a good SuperBowl and good commercials.

Social Security Primer

If you read nothing else about the SS plan floating around out there, read this. It's short, and it does a good job of getting down to the bottom line of why this plan stinks.

Just in case you wanted some analysis of the State of the Union, go here.

Crap, a US Military Hostage...

...or not.

This cracks me up. And check out the 'gun' held to his head. No one is holding it! That's so funny.

I wonder what would happen if someone held a Bush doll hostage?
