Good music

I'm currently enjoying the hell out of Guster, particularly the song Happier... You should have a listen.

Fun with NSFW links...

So, I found this really disturbing video on the nets and decided it would be fun to ctrl+v it to several of my buddies on the gtalk.

The only person to respond, was my friend hank or, as his parents call him, Josue.

Here is how the conversation went down:

Mike:

Josue:
I'm at work but I want to click on the link so bad.

Mike:
you shouldn't
....
but you do want to

Josue:
Knowing that I shouldn't makes it more tempting.

Mike:
it might get you in trouble...
you really should just close the window
just in case you closed the window.. there is the link again
... but don't click it

Josue:
I don't know what it is, I only know that whatever it is, I want it

Mike:
more than you could imagine
It's really the most amazing thing you'll ever see
you should hurry home and click the link
... but don't click it now...

Josue:
I hate you
oh so much

Mike:
for giving you good advice.... I told you not to click on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrTiKP84kAA&feature=player_embedded
It's not like I'm trying to trick you into clicking on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrTiKP84kAA&feature=player_embedded ...


At this point in the conversation, I see our mutual friend, Chris, has come online...
Conversation with Chris:

Mike:
you should send josue that link I just sent you

Chris:
okay, why can't you do it?

Mike:
I did... and he was tempted to click it but can't
because hes at work
and I enjoy tempting the boy
and using you to do so makes it super funny to me

Chris:
okay, will do

Mike:
thanks chris, you're the best

Chris:
that's funny, when I linked it
it went and got a thumbnail of the video
and put it in the chat window
He says he is crying

Mike:
hahahahhaha

Back to conversation with Josue:

Josue:
I still hate you

Mike:

Josue:
now I'm crying
are you happy

Mike:
I am too... tears of joy

Much time passes... I head to work, I go to lunch, I get an IM on my phone...

Josue:
the link better be awesome. My day has gone at snail's pace because me looking at the clock thinking, in just a few more hours I'll see what the link is all about

He never let me know what he thought of the video, but I get the feeling he didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I enjoyed taunting him...

NASCAR + Vodka = Viewership!

I was thinking that in order to increase viewership, NASCAR should implement some new rules...

1. every time you make a lap, you take a shot of vodka.
2. every time someone passes you on the inside, you take a shot of vodka.
3. every time someone passes you on the outside, you take 2 shots of vodka.
4. if someone crashes into another car, you take a shot of vodka.
5. if someone crashes into a freestanding pillar, WATERFALL!

I'd watch that... Hell, I'd pay-per-view that!

Why stop there? Similar rules could be applied to any sport.
Your imagination is the limit... well, that and the players/participants blood alcohol level.

Marriage Class

What I learned from the Catholic Marriage class I attended...

(Paraphrase from the lecture)
God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son to air up our tires. His name is Jesus and he works at the local service station.

I'm not joking... The guy said Jesus puts air in our tires so we can better handle the speed bumps and potholes...

And THAT was the most important thing he said the whole day...
