Stan Meyer invented a water powered car that estimates showed could travel from one US coast to the other on 22 gallons of water. He shows the in car in operation in this old news clip. So what ever happened to him? He died after eating at a restaurant on March 21, 1998. An autopsy report showed the cause of death to be poisoning.

Here is an excerpt from Bill o'Reilly's radio show:
--a heavily adapted/edited comment from Hammer of the Blogs:
Wow! He doesn’t have the time for something of this magnitude, not even when it’s someone he has described as a friend of his? Is the flock naive enough to take his words at face value? Give me a break!
So if you haven't noticed, I've been using a service called PayPerPost that pays me to blog about items, sites and services. It matches up advertisers with bloggers.
The Pastor Ted Haggard scandal now includes sex and drugs. (See previous post here.) Richard Sanders, a voice expert who worked on the Oklahoma bombing, JonBenet Ramsey murder, and Kobe Bryant cases, says voicemails left on a gay escort's answering machine belong to megachurch pastor and Bush ally Ted Haggard.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak gives Steve Jobs credit as the driving force behind the conception of Apple, but he doesn’t think Jobs would have met with success if it hadn’t been for him.

So I was just reading a review of Sacha Baron Cohens new "Borat" movie, and did a wikipedia search only to learn theat he was "SUPER GREG" of SG fame years ago.
Grammy Award winnner/singer/songwriter Jeff Tweedy is part of the growing group of artists that understands that there’s more to music than selling pieces of plastic, and suing your fans.

Like so many others I watched the gubernatorial debates of Dick DeVos and Jennifer Granholm. Later that night I was at a local bar and in walked Dick DeVos. I asked if he woud like to join us. He said that he would be happy to but it would work like this, I woud buy two drinks and give him one, then I would have to get two of my friends to buy two drinks and they would each give me one and I would pass one of those up to him, then they would get two of their friends and so on.

Like any reasonably creative and curious human, Scot can't resist a dirty rear car window. We suspect that Scott started off with clever sayings, like, "Wash Me". Probably his first image was thhe uubiquitous smiley face. Unlike most folks however, Scott lives on a mile and a half of dirt road - caliche, as the locals call it, road-base: a blend of limestone dust and gravel and clay. Driving over this surface results in a fine, white dust that billows up behind any vehicle driven faster than a galloping turtle, coating the rear window. Being an experienced artist (and let's face it, a little...different), it wasn't long before Scott was experimenting with techniques to achieve these amazing detailed and shhaded drawings.
"The State Board of Education on Tuesday approved public school curriculum guidelines that support the teaching of evolution in science classes — but not intelligent design.
So, if you havent seen these email picture going around, they are a series of paper creations made with a single piece of paper. The entire series can be seen here if you haven't been already bombarded with it in your email by all your office buddies.
You know, when I first got into advertising Lee Clow was already a rock star in the advertising world as then CD and now Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of TBWA\Worldwide. I have followed his career over the years and always admired him not only his eye for design and sense for what's cool, but also his philosophy on creative and the creative process. he also holds a special place in my heart for creating the Apple Computers "1984" ad.
"Five months ago, Wired News senior editor and former hacker Kevin Poulsen whipped up 1,000 lines of computer code that scoured MySpace’s 1 million plus profiles for 385,932 registered sex offenders in 46 states.
Both actually (see picture) and figuratively (see below):
The eccentric Southern tradition of "eephing" is best described as the hillbilly equivalent of the hip-hop human "beat box" vocal style -- a kind of hiccupping, rhythmic wheeze that started in rural Tennessee more than 100 years ago.
I’ve tried the whole X-10 home automation and home security thing and canned it because of it’s flakiness, and main stream home security like Brinks and ADT can be quite expensive. So I’ve been hearing a lot lately on the radio about this LaserShield Home Security System, and thought I’d check it out.
Are UFOs actually the devil's minions sent not from the stars above but the fires of hell below? Over a Fortean Times, Sheffield University folklorist David Clarke surveys this odd niche of ufology literature identifying ETs as demons or, if we're lucky, angels. From the article:
Because they are.
I told him 3 times to stop messing around with the laundry hamper.
"The captain goes down with the ship, and when famed Bowery club CBGB closes Sunday night, it'll be with a final send-off by Patti Smith. You can imagine how the cultural obits will read: CBGB, the scrappy and scraggly home of art-punk, dead of palpitating rent payments at 33. But the most sensible paean has already come via Smith's guitarist Lenny Kaye. Doing some quick napkin math in the Village Voice, Kaye reckoned that at three bands a night, 365 days a year for more than 30 years, the club hosted somewhere around 50,000 bands and 200,000 musicians. Even allowing for repeat performances, that's an army, mostly drawn from the ranks of the pretty good drummers, the not-so-bad bassists, and the promising guitarists you never hear of again. The club will always be connected to famous names like Smith, but its real glory was in nourishing the infinitely branching root system of the good to indifferent musicians—the schlubs, the schmucks, the shredders—that underlies any rock ecosystem. I know: I was one of them."
Here is a new eBay listing tool that really simplifies the whole process of listing and selling something. It would be the perfect tool for elderly neophites (thats NOT a bad word!) who need an easy and quick way to sell things on eBay.
So the guys over at MyHeritage.com have a neat free face recognition program where you upload a photo of yourself and it scans it's database and show you matches that look like you. I did this and had a collage made to post below.
This guy Jason over at calacanis.com (no I WON'T link it, wait, well ok, yeah I will) is spewing about PPP and how evil it is.
So now Republican Mark Foley has not only checked himself into rehab because he's "an alchaholic" but he has also divulged that he is "gay" (duh!) and the latest, that he was sexually molested by a catholic clergy when he was a child.
Okay, let me preface this by asking NOT to send me emails about being racist.
The Guys over at TechCrunch.com produced a podcast of the interview with PayPerPost.com's Ted Murphy and Josh Stein.
Oink lang syne? I'd like to think that this piggy speakers would have the chops for it. Available in either pink or white and able to snort at 2.1-channel output, I am all ready to bring this little pig home. Do the ham radio thing by tweaking its ears. And if it's not squealing loud enough, well, feel free to give the tail a tug (volume control). Just don't go telling animal welfare on us unless you fancy pork knuckles in your face.
Okay, here is another great video from the guys at WonderShowzen. These guys contiinually push the taste boundaries and are about as non-PC as you can get. I don't know who allows their kids to be recorded saying those things either, even still, it's hillarious.
