Something to consider before you get a wind mill, folks.

I’m sure the statistic odds of this happening are on the order of 1 in 1,000,000 but still:


H/t: FAIL blog.

Now that the tropical storm has passed…

For those that have power and access to the internets [sic], enjoy some music (Vertical Horizon – “Everything You Want”):

A good cause: National Suit Drive

Sponsored by the Men’s Wearhouse:

Our Commitment
Here at Men’s Wearhouse®, we believe in committing ourselves to the communities that we serve. We feel that being a socially responsible company is just as important as providing excellent customer service or quality products. That’s why, in conjunction with our 35th anniversary, we’re sponsoring our first annual National Suit Drive.

A Second Chance
For many unemployed men, a new suit is the first step toward a second chance. During the National Suit Drive, every one of our over 550 stores will be collecting gently used professional attire to benefit at-risk men and youth transitioning into the workforce. All clothing we receive will be distributed throughout the community by local nonprofit organizations. Click here to see the complete list of nonprofits.

One year anniversary of the creation of this “hate blog”.

To quote a relative of a certain local politician.

And actually, it’s a year and 13 days since I forgot the anniversary.

And if you guys and/or gals thought the writing is horrible now, you should read some of the old posts from last year.

Pardon the following pop culture post.

On television, now that the writer’s strike is over, the good television shows (that means no Grey’s Anatomy, guys) will be back on. Of course, with the possibly of an actors strike, who knows.

But anyway, my shows to watch:

Stargate Atlantis‘s fifth season has already started on SCI FI (first episode was on July 11th).

Can a show unjump-the-shark? Find out on the fourth season of Prison Break when it premieres on September 1st.

The Shield‘s final season is slated to start September 2nd on FX.

Season two of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will start September 8th on FOX.

The last season of Battlestar Galactica will return in 2009 with the possibility of a couple webisodes in late 2008.

There has been talk of webisodes for Farscape for at least a year now, but little concert details as of yet.

And in the movie arena:

The new Batman movie, The Dark Knight, will premiere on July 18th.

The best science fiction show ever, The X-Files [die Trekkies], returns in The X-Files: I Want to Believe on July 25th.

Hookers, truck drivers hardest hit by high fuel prices.

From the Cable News Network:

Rising fuel prices are putting a pinch on the world’s oldest profession.

Nevada brothels that cater to long-haul truckers are offering gas cards and other promotions after seeing business decline as much as 25 percent from a year ago, industry officials said.

Geoffrey Arnold, president of the Nevada Brothel Owners’ Association, said truckers account for up to 75 percent of business at the state’s rural brothels along Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 95.

He said business is down about 19 percent at his two northern Nevada brothels along I-80: Donna’s Ranch in Wells and Donna’s Battle Mountain Ranch.

“We’re being affected by the economy like everybody else,” Arnold said. “Times are tougher … and truckers have less money to spend. They’re not high-rollers anymore.”
