Is this thing still on?

Worst season of the Hippo's Ass EVER!

Ah well. LOST is in repeats AGAIN this week so I guess I have some time to write a bit. I will make a serious attempt to update this bloc every Tuesday and Thursday. Maybe on Sunday (but don't count on it.) I am starting another BLOG very shortly. Look for The Motown Tea Party to be up and running by March 1st if not sooner.

Who won the Blue Hippo League this year? I lost interest in the third week when my team decided to quit. Looks like our friend J-Man will have some issues if he tries to log on to the Internet in Canada. Seems like the a college campus has declared Wi-Fi to be dangerous to ones health. That and the alien transmissions from Mars that are being bounced off the CN tower.

A Canadian university has limited Wi-Fi networks on campus, not out of information security concerns, but because the long-term safety of the technology is "unproven".
Fred Gilbert, president of Canada's Lakehead University, made the order on the basis of possible health risk from the technology, especially to young people. Inconclusive studies into possible links between radio transmissions and leukemia and brain tumors from, among others, scientists for the California Public Utilities Commission, led Gilbert to make the "precautionary ban".

"All IÂ’m saying is while the juryÂ’s out on this one, IÂ’m not going to put in place what is potential chronic exposure for our students. Admittedly thatÂ’s highest around the locations of the antenna sites and the wireless hot spots, but those are the places people tend to gravitate to because they get the best reception," Gilbert said, Canadian technology website IT Business reports.

The J-Man is looking for a job...San Francisco has one for him.

San Francisco, a leader in urban recycling, is preparing to enlist its canine population for a first in the United States: converting dog poop into energy.

Dog feces could be scooped into a methane digester, a device that uses bugs and microorganisms to gobble up the material and emit methane, which would be trapped and burned to power a turbine to make electricity or to heat homes. Dogs and cats in the United States produce about 10 million tons of waste a year, Will Brinton, an environmental scientist and owner-director of Woods End Laboratories in Maine, said.

Mark is headed to the hot-bed of Al Queda terror soon: West Point. I did a little research on this
Front in the War on Terror. So imagine my surprise when I was able to finally purchase a DVD of Mad Magazine Presents: Up the Academy!
This comical (sic) look at military academies gave us such memorable lines like:

  • Hot Beef Injection
  • the pick up line"Tickle your ass with a feather?"
  • or "Be a billow of smoke...blowing across the moors
  • and even this funny exchange:

Leisman: What did I tell you I'd do if I ever caught you stealing again?

Hash: You said you'd rip my balls off, sir.

Leisman: Say it again!

Hash: You said you'd rip my balls off, sir.

Leisman: Say it again!

Hash: You said you'd rip my balls off, sir.

It also stars a very young Ralph Macchio. Is Ralph Macchio ever anything but young?

'Nuff for now dear reader. Just remember: Guns don't kill people, Vice Presidents do.
