My Superbowl Picks

I dreamed last night that I was watching the superbowl on t.v., only it wasn't at a big 90,000-seat stadium but a tiny high school athletic field in the middle of the night and half the lights didn't work. But there were still millions of people watching on t.v.and it was between the cardinals and ... the redskins. (my home team.)

I dreamed the redskins had just gotten a touchdown and they were going for the extra point ... only in dreamville, instead of kicking for the extra point you just got two fat girls, one in a cardinals outfit and one in a redskins outfit, to line up at the 2 and repeatedly slam into each other. the redskins girl was way fatter so she slammed the cardinals girl out of the way for the extra point. (yes, I know that sounds like a two-point conversion but in my dream it was one point. according to dream-state, one-on-one fat girl rules.)

I didn't drink myself to sleep last night like I usually do, maybe that's the problem.

anyway, I think the steelers will win by 10.

Friday Top Box Office Picks

Of the movies coming out my vote is going for inkheart for the win, just because it looks like the worst movie coming out this week, plus it has something of the stench of twilight and lord of the rings about it, which really gets the cellar dwellers out.

There's a movie coming out this week called "donkey punch." that just seems wrong somehow.

Yes We Did!

I'd like to extend a warm welcome to our nation's first ever terrorist president. Notice to all white people: You will presently be directed to a Wal*Mart-slash-internment camp near you. Start packing now and beat the rush.

Fart Found on Mars

Scientists believe this is evidence someone might be farting up there.

Something is happening beneath the surface of Mars that causes substantial
amounts of methane gas to vent regularly into the atmosphere, a discovery that
NASA scientists said yesterday represents the strongest indication so far that
life may exist, or once existed, on the planet.

The methane is released into the atmosphere in specific areas and at regular times, they found, in a pattern that would be consistent with the gas being a byproduct of biological activity beneath the planet's parched surface.

Principal investigator Michael Mumma, of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, said the detection does not mean that life definitely exists on Mars, since the gas can also be produced by subsurface geological or chemical processes.

Nevertheless, "we believe this definitely increases the prospects for finding life on Mars," said Mumma, whose findings are being published today in the journal Science. "No other discovery has done as much to increase the chances of finding life."

and of course, the quote of the day:
Pratt called the methane find "a breathtaking discovery."
