Duke University students wrestling in baby oil?

In the basement of a frat houses this weekend women in bikinis were wrestling in an inflatable swimming pool in a vat of baby oil. The Duke University students were mimicking scenes from the very funny movie Old school.

Why would these women want to do this. They must be very desperate for attention to have baby oil in places where the sun don't shine. From my understanding Duke is a pretty tough school to get into so these young women are probably relatively intelligent. What happened? Perhaps too much liquor.

No wonder more women don't rule companies, they spend too much time in college rolling around in baby oil and not enough time studying. Well, not really but women need to step it up and get some morals.

Fantasy Apprentice?

Are you a fan of The Apprentice on NBC. I watched the first season religiously but got a bit turned off by the second season when they made each episode an advertisement for a major company.

Anyway, see how business savvy you are by playing Fantasy Apprentice (similar to Fantasy Football) online with a bunch of Microsoft brains.

Washington State Governor Race off by 3,700 votes?

What a mess the Washington State Governor race has turned out to be. Look at this interesting statistical analysis of just some of the many flaws in the recent election.

What bothers me about the voting mess is not a lot is being done to see who the actual governor should be. I my opinion there needs to be a recount and some serious changes to the voting system. We can't have dead people voting, even if they are republicans.

Protesting the Presidential Inauguration

The crazy liberals are at it again today by protesting the Presidential Inauguration in a variety of ways. In New Orleans' French Quarter there was a "jazz funeral for democracy" while others read the names of dead American's who have died.

I too morn those who have heroically given their life to keep this great country save. They are my heros and my heart aches for what they must be going through. However, if the crazy's want to read the names of lost soldiers why don't they read the millions of unnamed babies who have been killed before they were even given a chance at life? Or, why don't they read the names of all the people Saddam Hussein killed during his reign as an evil dictator?

I get so frustrated with people who don't see the big picture. Yes, we are losing soldiers and it saddens me tremendously, but what about all those people who have been liberated? To me the glass is half full, what about you?

Embryo adoption?

This is a very interesting article about families who can't conceive a baby naturally and are adopting embryos. I think this is great. It allows people who wouldn't other wise be able to carry a baby in their own womb to experience pregnancy. This is defiantly a glass half full way to look at embryo research.

New iPod Shuffle

Last week Apple came out with a new smaller iPod called the iPod Shuffle. This new MP3 player is as small as a pack of Trident. There is already a four week waiting list. The new Shuffle is only $99 which is very reasonable for a MP3 player that holds 120 songs.

Washinton's Governor

Washington State's new, or should I say temporary, Governor, Christine Gregoire was sworn in today with little support from the fighting Republicans. I think this has been such an interesting Governor race. Gregoire basically wanted to keep re-counting the votes until they were in her favor. She won the third re-count by 129 votes out of 2.9 million. Like they say "third time is a charm."

The problem in King County, which is primarily Demorate, is there are many votes that can't be tied to a voter. " Republicans say widespread irregularities, including votes cast by felons and dead people, spoiled the election to the point where it is impossible to truly know who won," according to Yahoo! News. Due to the uncertainty of the election, Republicans are demanding a re-count. Washington State has not had a Republican Governor in 20 years and the liberals are not going to allow this streak to end. If you think we should have a re-count and live in Washington click here.

Blogger claims he predicted the earthquake in the Inidan Ocean

Did a blogger predict the major earthquake in the Indian Ocean that occurred on December 26 last September? He may have. I just came across this press release that discusses this strange phenomenon. You can also check out the post on his blog where he predicts the earthquake. It could be a scam but it is kind of interesting.

Words from a Soldier

My friend's boyfriend is a special forces officer fighting the tough battle in the Middle East. Here is his recent email update:

"It has not been such a good New Year for the good guys thus far. We ended up losing two guys, one on the 2nd of January and another on the 3rd of January.

One soldier got hit in an ambush and caught some rounds in his femeral artery (Big one in the leg) and bled out while getting MEDEVACed out, and another was killed in a Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED).

Along with the soldier that was killed by the VBIED (2) other soldiers were wounded including their Captain..Lucky for Jay (my ex-roommate) that he is studying to be a dentist because it was his team that got hit and the Captain that got wounded was the one that replaced him...so again not good news for the home team, but I guess a blessing for Jay.

I havn't written Jay yet, but I figure Shane (his ex-team sergeant), who was with me when I got wounded in the PI, will drop him a note.

Feel really bad for Shane because he worked with Mark and I when we got hit by the VBIED in the PI, and now he lost another soldier, and had two more wounded.

Anyway, on a good note Seahawks managed to beat the Falcons, won the NFC West Division, and play the Rams on Sunday in Seattle, so hopefully they can beat the Rams at their home stadium and continue on to the 2nd round of playoffs.

Hope all of you guys had a good Christmas and a Happy New Year. I will write more when I get the chance."

My time in New Jersey

It is always interesting spending time back in New Jersey with the in-laws. I feel like I am in the twilight zone mixed with Desperate House Wife's. I did have a great time and really had a chance to relax, which I desperately needed. For those who have never been to New Jersey just watch the Sopranos on HBO and you will get a feel for the culture of the Garden State.

My sister in-law bought herself a real Burberry Bag for Christmas. For those of you who have never heard of Burberry (everyone from the west coast) it is a designer hand bag with a price point of $300-$500 or more. I know you crazy left coaster are thinking "who would spend $500 on a purse?" The answer is a lot of people. This is normal for New Jersey. I have never seen more designer hand bags in my life than when I was at TGI Friday's bar in New Jersey. It is a different world and I always love visiting the Jersey folk.
