Poem for English speakers...

Taken from wikipedia, attributed to anonymous (that anonymous guy is really prolific.)

I take it you already know,
Of tough and bough and cough and dough.
Others may stumble, but not you,
On hiccough, thorough, laugh and through.
Well done! And now you wish, perhaps,
To learn of less familiar traps.
Beware of heard, a dreadful word,
That looks like beard and sounds like bird.
And dead - it’s said like bed, not bead,
For goodness’ sake, don’t call it ‘deed’!
Watch out for meat and great and threat,
(They rhyme with suite and straight and debt).
A moth is not a moth in mother,
Nor both in bother, broth in brother.
And here is not a match for there,
Nor dear and fear for bear and pear.
And then there’s dose and rose and lose –
Just look them up – and goose and choose.
And cork and work and card and ward,
And font and front and word and sword.
And do and go and thwart and cart –
Come, come, I’ve hardly made a start!
A dreadful language? Why man alive!
I’d mastered it when I was five.

Not the way to park.

Get rewarded for good...ish behavior...

It's important that we make sure that understand the concept of a production website...or it could go down.

Got nothing better to do? Let's take New Zealand.

Legos really are cool!

My son is a huge fan of the Lego Blocks. But I really don't want him trying this.

Mmmmm Bacon. Mmmmm Doughnuts. Mmmm Bacon-doughnut?

Last but not least for you bird lovers out there. Apparently global warming is good for a segment of the population.. Just remember the Brits speak a little differently that we do. Get your mind out of the gutter. Thanks to Ken for pointing out this lovely piece of reporting.

Oh yeah, Strangely addictive site - Typeracer. Way more fun than it should be....

Dude had rough time with his phone provider?

I'm guessing not only was this guy ticked, but he is in the math or science field.

Gin, Television, and Social Surplus

(Just way interesting).

OK, This isn't funny (not haha anyway - maybe more hmm.)- Just kinda thought provoking and I'm pretty sure it's all over the web anyway....There's this guy named Clay Shirky. He has some interesting thoughts about our culture and how it's changing and the relationships between socail networks. Pretty neat stuff....

Here's the transcription.
Here's the video from
The video is about 15 minutes long but I consider it time well spent....I mean better spent than watching say "Gilligan's Island"

Friday Cool?

Dangers of reporting? I guess being a reporter is a good job...until it isn't.

Wouldn't it be cool if there was an organization sworn to uphold the 1st amendment?

OK, this is just kinda cool! I'm betting on the Mudcats!

Hockey fights have changed...

BBC hiring policies

Apparently you won't be hired if you call the head of HR a "skank ho"

I'm just saying this is probably not a good interview technique.....
Many thanks to Ken for pointing this out.

Genius? And by request MANCOLD

Late Addition and Edition:
It's true I have a man-cold.
As my wife and her friend have pointed out.

Ok this guy really didn't think.

Be careful what you ask Grandma......
Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.
In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.'

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?'

She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.'

The defense attorney nearly died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, 'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair.'
