Neat Stuff !

This link isn't bizzare, so it didn't really know where to put it; it's actually one of those Aah moments captured on video of a mother and her twins playing in a > Backyard Sprinkler.

I watched this video and then showed it to my wife and daughters. The first thing my wife said was; "I bet their marriage ends in divorce." So without further setup here for your viewing pleasure is > Pie Slap Revenge

Wow. Why would they do that to each other? Why would they then put the video on YouTube for the world to see? I think they have problems.

I bet he left a hand print on her arse with that slap it sounded like a firecracker. I laughed myself silly at his revenge, although my wife and daughters thought the cookie sheet smack was the funniest part. Typical!

Re: Neat Stuff !

Normally when you refer to someone as a drunkard it's not considered a compliment; that is unless you are writing an article for 'Modern Drunkard Magazine' and that article is more of a tribute to a man whose titanic appetite for life, put him in a league all his own. A man like Andre Rene Rousimoff, you know him better as > Andre the Giant.

Re: Neat Stuff !

Wow! Great idea. I might consider getting a tattoo if it will help me keep tabs on my glucose levels. Thanks for sharing that link, Bob.

Re: Neat Stuff !

Yesterday I looked around the local Circuit City store, all the computers were gone and almost everything else, just some plasma TV's and other miscellaneous stuff for sale, and even the store displays were for sale.  Pretty scary, but hope to update my computer soon and get a faster Internet connection, then I'll post the news in the Sound The Trumpets thread.

Sent that to a guy I used to work with who had three pugs. I had to convince him that it wasn't something obnoxious, but when he opened it, he wouldn't stop raving about it.

Robbie Maddison is nuts! He jumped from a ramp up to the top of a 10 story building with room to spare. Then to demonstrate he really is crazy he jumped off the building back onto a ramp. World's Highest Motorcycle Jump

Re: Neat Stuff !

In the movie 'Tin Cup' Kevin Costner's character, Roy McAvoy, is bragging to Don Johnson's character, David Sims, that he just shot par on the back nine using only a 7-iron. When Cup asks Simms if he's ever parred the backside using only a 7-iron, Simms replies, "Well shoot, Cup, it never occurred to me to try."

This clip definitely falls into the category of: "Well shoot, it never occurred to me to try!" Playing the piano is hard enough with your hands; his guy plays the piano with > his balls. I kid you not!

Re: Neat Stuff !

I've seen that one. It bothers me. I have some obsessive compulsive tendencies. Now I feel I have to clean my monitor with window cleaner.

Re: Neat Stuff !

Heck, at least you can get away with window cleaner. I'm wrapped so tight I had to buy special monitor cleaner wipes! Now if you will excuse me, in proper Germanic tradition, I need to get my belt AND suspenders ready for the day.

Re: Neat Stuff !

BK, it has taken years to master my compulsions at least to a more normal degree. My first impulse was actually to discard the monitor and replace it with a new one. That is not practical though so I simply scrub it. Please excuse me now while I group my M&Ms by color and in descending order by quantities.

Re: Neat Stuff !

I just cleaned the kitchen; stocked the fridge with cans of soda (all pointed a certain direction); the milk jug handle is pointed in the right direction...the lid on the dish washing soap is closed and the salt and pepper shakers are lined  up evenly on the counter...

then I sit down to the computer to relax and I get MORE OCD!!!!! ARGH!!
