This great lady is 84 years old today.  She is the only surviving head of state to serve in uniform in World War II.  God Save the Queen!

I love this pic. The Queen roasts Reagan and he's loving it.

Remember the grown ups?  I miss them.

Bring your bikes to Salt Lake City. This place is full of bike enthusiasts.

The Eternal Thread April 16, 2010

Some of you may remember that I used to blog.  It was a long time ago, so I won’t be offended if that doesn’t ring a bell.  Anyway, for some reason I just started getting emails notifying me of new comments to a post I did in December of 2005, in which I eruditely expounded upon the theme of Tom Morello being a colossal douchebag.  Turns out, there is still an argument going on in the comments section, nearly four and a half years later.  Weird, huh?

Misheard Lyrics April 15, 2010

We’ve all done it… Misheard the lyrics in one song or another.
“Scuse me while I Kiss This Guy”.
Here’s one of my favorite misheard lyrics videos.
(They’re called Mondegreens, by the way.)
This has a crushing guitar beat that will have even Dave in Texas tappin’ his toes.

The 2010 Stagnation of Initial Unemployment Claims April 15, 2010

Despite claims from the press and administration that the unemployment situation is getting better, what we really see from the initial unemployment claims data is no progress at all for the last 4 months. Today the Department of Labor released the latest claims numbers, which showed an . . . (wait for it) . . . “unexpected” jump in claims.

It truly was unexpected: the prediction was that claims would drop by 20,000 to 440,000. Instead they climbed by 24,000 to 484,000.

So let’s look at where that puts us:

Embiggen me!!


What you see is that the number of claims was steadily declining until about December 2009. Ever since then, we’ve just been oscillating around 450,000 – 460,000 claims per week.

No progress at all.

And what was it that happened in December 2009? The only thing that comes to mind is the passage of the Senate’s health care bill.

I’m just sayin’.

If a 300 pound homeless transvestite claiming to be a:

  • Spiritual Cleanser
  • Divine Master
  • Mayan Priestess

wants your children to strip down to their underwear and go into a locked bedroom with him, I would say you probably shouldn’t go along with it.
