Some people are just clueless...

I guess you have to admit, the Swastika does look pretty cool...

The Bitter-Sweet Smell of Irony

Here are a couple of things I found that made me laugh out loud (actually just giggled to myself). The "One-armed man" one was too much, thank god for Irony.

The new Pillow Tie, the perfect father's day gift.

The Pillow Tie is an invention of Tom Bowen, a former business student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. It looks just like a normal tie, but has a larger knot. can be blown up with one breath and deflated in seconds. Bowen's friend and business partner, Shawn Baxter, said Bowen came up with the idea after his sister told him about a bad habit her son had of sleeping in church.

Sixty-two varieties of Pillow Ties are available at the "inflated" price of $19.95, but the blow-up bit can be removed in case the wearer wants a normal tie. So, if you enjoy sleeping on the job, look into this.


So everyone knows what trans-fat is, right? Well, I assume if you have a TV and are subjected to the commercialization of junk food vs. health food, you've at least heard of the term. Trans-fats are formed when liquid oil is made into a solid fat (such as margarine) by adding hydrogen. This new "miracle product" started invading foods varying from cakes to salad dressings. Ultimately, of course trans-fat is not healthy for you. No nutritional benefit whatsoever. Some oils are good for you.. olive oil, canola oil.....but it's this whole hydrogenated thing that messes with the program. Recently, fast food chains started changing their cooking oils, snack foods are changing their recipes to be trans-fat fee, heck... New York City restaurants are prohibited from serving food that has anything but trace amounts of trans-fats. Ironically, our nation's largest meal provider, Mc Donald's, still serves many of their items with, you guessed it, TRANS FAT. A double quarter pounder has 2.0g of this tasty delight. Once in a while at 2:00am when there is nothing in the refrigerator, why not, but if you are not at the point of starvation, reconsider your options. It is not until we demand more out of our food products that massive food chain restaurants will re-think the role they play in our society. If we don't develop a healthy conscious, then don't expect these big CEOs to develop one neither. They see us as numbers and $$$, and only look for ways to maximize profits. Change, or be McDead.

Glenn Beck -- A National Problem?

I don't know what Fox's interview process is, or even if they have one, but this guy needs to hit the road. Ironically, he is considerably one of Fox's "finest", which says a lot about Fox as a network. Glenn Beck is responsible for the deaths of many brain cells and I heard he punches babies. I saw a picture of his recent rally which took place on August 28, 2010, and I was shocked to see people showed up.

Please do not buy his book, but if you have, I would really like your opinion.

Muslim Mosque in New York

In all fairness, being Islamic does not mean you are a suicide bomber, and Arab-Americans are entitled to as much rights as any of us, because of that second half, "American", so why not? I say let them build a mosque "by" ground zero. We aren't exactly Mr. Popular in the Arab regions and it is time to get over the fact that the 9/11 terrorists represented a small portion of the Arabs who happened to be radicals, can you imagine if the Arabs thought we were all Bush-like cowboys?

Then again I don't know how the Iraqis would take it if some American-Arabs decided to build a statue of Bush where Saddam's statue was toppled.
