It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

A Happy Chevy Grad - Superbowl Winning Commercial

Because we all know America's Team is out of the playoffs.  The Texans handed the Ravens a win, who in turn lost to the Patriots - a team nobody really cares about.  And well, nobody can really stand the Giants, so what's the point?

Commercials!  You know everybody watches the Superbowl for the commercials.  It will be the perfect time to DVR and fast forward through the entire game. LOL.

Here's Zack Borst's winning entry to Chevrolet's Route66 competition chevroletroute66.com. This Chevy ad will appear during Super Bowl XLVI.  Check it out, it's pretty darn funny.

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 19 - Please Keep Your Pets Inside!

Ken Aden
If you're a Democrat, more than likely you're going to have some *cough*publican come over and do something very, very bad to your family pet.  

Ken Aden, a Democratic congressional candidate from Arkansas informed the Blue Arkansas that when he got home last night, he got "the most chilling phone call" he'd ever received.  He told police that his Campaign Manager, Jake Burris and his four kids had returned home after the long weekend when one of his children found their family cat on the porch -  SLAUGHTERED!

According to Aden's campaign the cat "had one side of its head bashed in to the point the cat's eyeball was barely hanging from its socket." and the word "LIBERAL" written across its side.
The article goes on to say...
Both Ken and Jake though made it clear that they weren’t going to back down on the campaign trail, both agreeing that caving to this kind of behavior would only make things worse. - Blue Arkansas

Quoted: Olivia-Newton John on Marriage Equality

"With respect to marriage equality, I believe that no-one has the right to judge and deny couples who love each other the ability to make a marriage commitment... Love is love."

Things We Can Do To Save The Environment - Issue No. 01: Turn Food Into Fuel

Corn is the first topic in my new weekly blog, "Things We Can Do To Save The Environment".

Giving credit to TIME,  I'd like to thank them for showing us the many ways we can meet these goals of saving our environment.  And yes, even one person can make a difference.

The Global Warming Survival Guide

1. Turn Food Into Fuel

Are corn husks better than corn for producing energy? Ethanol is the alternative fuel that could finally wean the U.S. from its expensive oil habit and in turn prevent the millions of tons of carbon emissions that go with it. The Department of Energy has doubled its 2005 commitment to funding research into biofuels—any non-petroleum fuel source, including corn, soybean, switchgrass, municipal waste and (ick) used cooking oil. Already, half of the nearly 11 billion bushels of corn produced each year is turned into ethanol, and most new cars are capable of running on E10 (10% ethanol and 90% gas).

Yet the eco-friendly fuel is beginning to look less chummy of late. Some of the 114 ethanol plants in the U.S. use natural gas and, yes, even coal to run the processors. And ethanol has to be trucked. Existing gas pipelines can't carry it because it corrodes iron. Then there are the economics. Producers depend on federal subsidies, and increasing demand for corn as fuel means the kernels keep getting pricier.

That's why researchers are prospecting for more alternatives, preferably ones that don't rely on food crops or a 51 cents-per-gallon tax break. Municipal waste, wood pulp and leftover grain and corn husks are all quite attractive; they can produce something called cellulosic ethanol, which contains more energy than corn. But they don't give up their bounty easily, so for now they're more expensive than corn-based ethanol to produce. Undeterred, researchers at several cellulosic-ethanol plants are developing innovative enzyme concoctions and heating methods to make the process more economic. Nothing like haste to make something out of waste. 

Make sure to follow this blog every Tuesday for a new issue of Things We Can Do To Save The Environment.  Each issue is thought-provoking, informative and may hold the key to saving your children and grandchildren's future

The Woes of Being a Bad Parent - One Child Left Behind

So on a snowy winter day, a momma is pulling her child on a stroller (pulling, not pushing), when she rushes to cross the street.  Except, momma forgot one important thing, the child she left behind.  

All I can say is, "thank God a patrol car with a camera beeped her ass". Geezus. The Woes of Being a Bad Parent!  And yes, she's a bad parent for not buckling that child in.

Laugh of the Day: Slow Jerkin'

I'm sorry, but this has got to be be one of the most hilarious videos I have seen in a very long time.  We all know how office politics plays out.  We go to the kitchen, stand by the water cooler and start talking about the weekend, the partying, women, guys, and gossip about our boss.  But sometimes, some people don't have time to listen to it, or don't want any part of it, so they do a small jerk of the hand and blow it off.  Well not for Darren, he doesn't take being blown off lightly.   

OMG, this is absolutely hilarious!  Prepare yourself.

19 Debates - 4 Republicans Left

By this Thursday, there will have been an unprecedented 19 Republican debates with a probable 10 more scheduled before they pick a bozo as their nominee.  I mean, you can call us geeks, but Ryan and I watch these hypocrites debate each other twice a week instead of sitting down watching American Idol.  I pop some popcorn, grab a sour pickle, and pour me some soda before it all starts.  It's comedy at it's best!

Actually it's must-see TV.  This is the first time in American History where so many Americans have tuned in to watch the debates, almost 5-6 million a night.  Hence, the reason they continue having them.  The typography snapshot above, courtesy of "I Love Charts" gives you an idea of what's been brought up during the debates.  As always, I will keep you posted on the current political climate. :-)

Laser Pointer Hack!

I had one growing up.  Oh, wait, I lied.  I had one when I was in college. LOL.  A laser pointer.  I loved those little contraptions.  If you never had one, something is definitely wrong with you. Of course you never want to point into someone's eyes for fear of blinding them, but pets love them!  Just shine the laser over their heads, on the wall, running it along the floor onto the couch and they will bark to their hearts content.  There's nothing like watching your pet chase a little red light they will never get a hold of.

Well now there's a super master hacker who can hack into this thing and super charge it.  Here are the step-by-step instructions:

I have organized my blogs with 3 days worth of postings, so if you wish to continue reading the days before that, and so forth and so forth, you can click the "Older Posts" button /\ /\ /\ right /\ up there.
