What Do Countries Call Themselves

Global Warming a Huge Concern...To Those Who Aren't Wealthy

Guess Global Warming isn't really that huge of an issue, being that the Gore's just bought (for $8.875M) a 5 bedroom, 9 bathroom house...also has 6 fireplaces. Oh and it's not their only house. Doesn't sound environmentally friendly to me.

Taking environmental advice from this fraud is like taking financial advice from a homeless man.

Al Gore, Tipper Gore snap up Montecito-area villa [LA Times]

This is what the Tennessee Center for Policy Research found about his consumption at his main home (that's right he has multiple, and just added one more):

"In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.

Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations – at a cost of $16,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration."

Tiger Woods Cartoon

Apple rejected this cartoon for one of their apps, because it ridicules a public figure. I, on the other hand, have no shame...

Bango The Buck

Sports mascots are only cool when their stunts put their life in danger. Sorry Slamson, roller skating down the stairs isn't that dangerous. Let's step it up next season huh?

Tyreke Evans won NBA's Rookie of the Year award. Although it hasn't been announced officially, there are multiple sources confirming it. Official announcement will be later this week. He put up great numbers all season long and unlike Curry, can also play defense.

Congrats Tyreke!!

LT likes the CL

The original LT, Lawrence Taylor, doesn't remember much from his draft day, because he drank 41 Coors Lights? Awesome.

And he still made plays like these:

Slated to come out September 24. Can't wait:

OKC Thunder

I really like this team...they remind me of the Kings in the early part of this decade. I would love for them to win the series, but also realize, the league would rather have Lakers win. OKC has to beat both the Lakers and the League on this one. Here are the highlights of them annihilating the Lakers. GO OKC...Beat LA!

Best Video On our Budget EVER

This video really shows how much our national spending has gotten out of control, when the $100 million Obama is looking to cut from the budget is equivalent to that little.

WATCH THIS VIDEO...It's worth the 1:38 of your time to understand.

Lighten Up People

It's getting ridiculous that we can't all laugh at ourselves. I think South Park is hilarious because it is always crossing the line. The shock value is what makes it funny.

Is this a real question? These are the complete idiots that run our country, is it any wonder the US is in the state it's in?

Which Party are You in?

Although I consider myself more of a Libertarian, I thought this was pretty funny:

I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people." Her parents beamed.

"Wow...what a worthy goal." I told her, "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and rake my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guys hang out, and you can give them the $50 to use toward food and a new house."

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why don't the homeless guys come over and do the work, and you can just pay them the $50?"

I shook her hand and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

...Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

NBA look-a-likes

This is pretty funny Click to see them all...

The Wine Zone

So last weekend I decided I would finally do something with the bare spot of wall, between our Kitchen cabinets and the other wall. We always had a little wine caddy there, but it was too small for the spot, and never really looked quite right. So I decided I would take our old cabinet from when the kitchen flooded (whole other story) and make an area that matches, but is also sort of offset from the rest of the kitchen.

I thought it turned out pretty well, Here are the results:

The ESPN Mock Draft Did it...It must be true:

The Kings have a 15.6% Chance of winning the #1 pick...which would be sweet, except, I'm not so sure they need John Wall, he's the best player, but not the best player for the Kings. They might be able to trade the 1st pick for something better like a 2nd or 3rd and another player.

1st Round NBA 2010 Playoffs

My Predictions:

(1) LA Lakers vs. (8) Oklahoma City Thunder: Lakers in 6
(2) Dallas Mavericks vs. (7) San Antonio Spurs: Mavericks in 5
(3) Phoenix Suns vs. (6) Portland Trailblazers: Suns in 7 (unless Roy Plays, then Portland in 7)
(4) Denver Nuggets vs. (5) Utah Jazz: Nuggets in 7

(1) Cleveland Cavaliers vs. (8) Chicago Bulls: Cavs in 5
(2) Orlando Magic vs. (7) Charlotte Bobcats: Magic in 6
(3) Atlanta Hawks vs. (6) Milwaukee Bucks: Atlanta in 4
(4) Boston Celtics vs. (5) Miami Heat: Heat in 7

Who wouldn't want to see a musical about Mormons written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone? Doubt it will be on the same level as Team America - World Police or Baseketball, but it will still be awesome.

Declaring for the NBA Draft

With all the people declaring for the NBA draft (it seems like everyone and their mother is), this letter from a law student at Kansas is pretty funny.

Overwhelmed by Law School, 2L Declares for NBA Draft

Ladies and Gentlemen,

First and foremost, I’d like to thank everyone for coming here today. To my fellow law students, professors, and Vicki Palmer (who copied or forwarded my undergraduate transcripts over one hundred times), I appreciate all you have done for me over these past two seasons at KU Law. This year has been particularly rough, especially considering my early exit from the Moot Court Competition and career-low statistics in both Secured Transactions and Business Associations II. That being said, I’d like to announce my eligibility for the 2010 NBA Draft this June.

After talking extensively with my family, NBA Scouts, and Dean Agrawal, I feel the time is right for me to take my game to the next level. We went through a lot of the same process last summer, but then again, at that time I had a paid internship and a credit score above 600. Given the current economic climate, looming unemployment rates in large legal markets and another potentially devastating subprime real estate ripple approaching, this is the right decision for me financially as well. The daily per diem and impending shoe contract have simply become too alluring in light of rising out-of-state tuition and an increased Consumer Price Index relative to average national legal wages. With little or no hope for an externship and a 0% success rate with OCI, the NBA draft is my next best alternative.

Granted, neither BAR/BRI nor Emanuel produce a commercial outline for the game of basketball, but KU Law has prepared me well for The Association. I don’t think I will go very high, in fact I probably won’t be drafted at all, yet I did recently attend the Sports & Entertainment Law Symposium and the skills I picked up that day will surely be welcomed by any NBA franchise. Additionally, I regularly sat but a few feet away from Cole Aldrich in the Burge and often held the door for Sherron Collins while exiting the bookstore. I’ve also personally witnessed the football and basketball teams engage in hand-to-hand combat at both Wescoe and The Ranch. The wealth of knowledge I’ve gained at KU Law will surely come in handy once my transcripts are lost in a fire or disappear strangely in the night, but until then there is a higher likelihood of me playing in the NBA than finding gainful legal employment.

Good thing someone caught the real story on tape...but seriously dude...Skipping?? You should be beat for that. Just kidding of course.

2010 NBA Playoffs

Here are 2 matchups that are set in stone

(1) L.A. Lakers vs. (8) Oklahoma City Thunder: This Matchup intrigues me, because if there wasn't any sort of NBA bias I actually think OKC could take this, they are skilled, deep and athletic. In reality (especially after recently reading Tim Donaghy's book Personal Foul), the league wants the big market team so LA will win, probably in 6 or 7. But if this were a sport and not a business I could see OKC winning.

(2) Orlando Magic vs. (7) Charlotte Bobcats: I think this series could go the distance as well, but in the end D-Howard and the Magic will be too much...unless the new owner could suit up and play again, like he did 15 years ago.

In Rare Company

Tyreke Evans joined a few of the greatest players in NBA history tonight by being the 4th rookie in NBA history to have a season average of: 20 points, 5 Rebounds, 5 Assists per game.

Who were the others? Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James. The future for the Kings is bright and Tyreke is a superstar in the making.

Nancy Pelosi - Is She Really this Stupid?

She said thisabout healthcare at an event in SF:

”It’s like the back of the refrigerator. You see all these wires and the rest,” said Pelosi. “All you need to know is, you open the door. The light goes on.”

I'm beginning to think she doesn't even know what's in it, given the fact that she won't explain it.

InstaPundit's response:

"Sticking with the refrigerator analogy, here’s something that I think gets us a lot closer to reality than anything Pelosi is likely to say. You’re lured to buy a refrigerator, only to find out that once you add up all the hidden costs the price is probably 30 times what was advertised, and the thing ends up taking over your entire house and bankrupting you and your whole neighborhood. You call somebody to come fix it, and the IRS shows up."

NCAA Basketball 2010 Awards on March 8th these were my NCAA 2010 award did I do? Not bad. I switched DeShaun Butler and Wesley Johnson between 1st team and 2nd team, and I missed John Scheyer of Duke, picking Greg Monroe instead. Only 1 completely wrong between the 2 teams...not bad!!

Player, Freshman, and Coach of the year predictions were all correct as well.

1st Team:
G: John Wall (Kentucky), Scottie Reynolds (Villanova)
F: Evan Turner (Ohio State), Deshaun Butler (West Virginia) Wesley Johnson (Syracuse)
C: DeMarcus Cousins (Kentucky)

2nd Team:
G: Sherron Collins (Kansas), Greivis Vasquez (Maryland)
F: Wesley Johnson (Syracuse) Deshaun Butler (West Virginia), James Anderson (Oklahoma State)
C: Greg Monroe (Georgetown) John Scheyer (Duke)

Player of the year: Evan Turner (Ohio State)
Coach of the Year: Jim Boeheim (Syracuse)
Freshman of the Year: John Wall (Kentucky)

So I forgot to post this, but I started brewing beer a few weeks ago, and it's starting to take form. I brewed a West Coast Pale Ale, it has already fermented and is now bottled and taking the form of real beer. It was fermented for about 15 days and so far has beer bottled for 8. I will probably try it in a few more days. Can't wait...I love beer.

Opening Day for Baseball

I'm not a huge baseball fan. That's right, there's actually a sport I'm not a huge fan of. It must have something to do with my ability (or lack there of) to concentrate, but it doesn't hold me...unless the game is live, otherwise it's too slow. Until Playoffs or the hunt for playoffs (you know when games actually matter).

But in appreciation of the last couple days being opening day across the country I present to you the Baseball fan's food Pyramid, How can you not enjoy games live with a food pyramid like this? Go Giants.
