You guys know that you can get all those old games on your computer for free, right? I bought a cheap USB game pad for like $10-20 too. Was just playing the original Zelda a few months back.

You know how some people have random patches of hair on their bodies? The other day, I saw an African-American gentleman who had one of those patches on his lower neck with white hair coming out. Instead of shaving it, this guy decided to grow it out about 3 inches long and braid it...

I hope the visual haunts some of you as it has me.

****ing I, he said in time. These current cardboard minds are still more than a few notches. When you need to be able to get everything you can to put all your things together, before someone figures out that the whole thing is a big scam and the constitution hasn't Good ass, and special donkeys, have not been heard from all the warnings that have already been uttered. Now let's see what kind of Lipton's quick correction. The Whirlybird and the partners are trying to resell. This is a cheap thing to do with the rest of it. Nothing is prepared.


The above is Facebook's attempt at translating something a Finnish friend of mine posted.

Here's the original text:
Saatanan tunarit, sanoi jo UKK aikanaan. Nämä nykyiset pahviaivot ovat vielä useamman pykälän verran suurempia tunareita. Kun pitäis saada äkkiä yhtiöitettyä kaikki mahdollinen, ennenkuin joku hoksaa, että koko juttu on suurta kusetusta ja perustuslaista ei ole välitetty ollenkaan. Kunnon ketkuja ja erityisen aaseja, ei ole otettu kuuleviin korviinkaan kaikkia jo aiemmin lausuttuja varoituksia asiasta. Nyt katsotaan millaisen Lipton-pikakorjauksen J.Vispilä ja kumppanit yrittävät saada myytyä eteenpäin. Tää on halpaa hommaa tää asioiden loputon säätö, mitään ei valmistella kuten kuuluu.


Google Translate:
Satan Tuners, he said already in the UK. These current cardboard cards are even more than a dozen more tuners. When you have to be able to get everything done before you get caught up before anyone gets caught up with the fact that the whole thing is a big cramp and the constitution has not been transmitted at all. Good kicks and special donkeys have not heard all the warnings already mentioned before. Now what kind of Lipton correction J.Vispilä and its partners are trying to sell forward. This is a cheap job of endless adjustment, nothing prepares like it does.


One more:
Satan's tunarit, said already in the FAQ in due course. These current cardboard brains are even more notches higher tunareita. When I think I should get all possible activities are hived off, before suddenly someone be aware of the fact, that the whole thing is i.t., and the Constitution is not passed at all. The condition of the ketkuja and especially donkeys, has not been completely deaf to the warnings we have spoken on this issue in the past korviinkaan all. Now lets see what Lipton-pikakorjauksen j. Whisk and partners are trying to get the sale. This is cheap just get this things infinite control, nothing to prepare such as belongs to.

My work assignment since Wednesday (due Monday) has been to read three reports (which are public record anyway) and basically pick them apart. Come up with any ideas, thoughts, or questions I possibly can on them.

Why the hell can't I do this from home?

We are about 8 years away from finished construction of the Sagrada Familia by Antoni Gaudi. This cathedral will be finished more than 100 years after his death. Good work takes a long time.

This video shows the construction yet to be completed and what the cathedral will look like in it's final state:



If you've ever been inside, you know this place is absolutely amazing. I visited about 4 years ago when I had a day off and was in the area, I will come back to visit when it is completed. It's a true marvel of architecture and design.

Fun place to waste some time. They put some architecture history in there, but the snarky pics are the fun part. Zillow tried to shut them down, it didn't work.

They were "Kabangers" when I was a kid and they had a handle, not a ring.

They were quickly taken off the market and repaced by one with a stick and solid plastic "rods" replacing the string. To nobody's surprise, except the nannies, that wasn't as popular...

Unable to embed video that shows the photo the story is talking about, so click on the story link to watch it.

Amelia Earhart captured by the Japanese?

A photograph discovered in the U.S. National Archives may add weight to the theory that Amelia Earhart survived a landing in the Marshall Islands and was taken captive by the Japanese.

The photo shows a picture of a woman who appears to be Amelia Earhart and a man that looks like her co-pilot, Fred Noonan, after their crash, according to a History Channel special dubbed Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence, which airs Sunday. The photo and other details that point to Earhart's capture by the Japanese are detailed in the two-hour special.

The show features former FBI Executive Assistant Director Shawn Henry as he investigates evidence supporting the theory that Earhart crash-landed in the Marshall Islands and eventually died in Japanese custody on the island of Saipan.
