A crocodile cannot move its tongue..
The last thing you'd be concerned about if you're getting chomp-chomped!
As an iPhone owner, I usually look over the apps that are available on a regular basis and pass on suggestions to my friends that have one also. But here is one application that you won't be seeing on the iTunes store because Apple rejected it stating (as claimed by the author) that it didn't think it would appeal to the iPhone/iTouch user. I told Jess about it and wonder what she would do if I snuck it on her iPhone (evil grin)
If you've seen the apps available through the app store, then you'll agree that this application would be in the top 50 for sure, or am I wrong? Honestly!? :)
Well, a focus group said they would come up with some politically correct way of saying this so as not to let anyone realize we KNOW what goes on in this "restroom." A requirement is that they needed to have Spanish translation also. Here's the Spanish version:
Here's the translation:
Didn't know I knew Spanish, eh? The mentioning of bathroom or any other bodily functions has been left out, not even restroom. So, remember to wash your hands before you abandon your restroom. Oh wait, not restroom, "this place."
They're already marking off parking spots for cars of the near future. But somehow I think this car is not compact enough for this spot!
If you were a cop, would you cite him?
E: I'm not going to be there since my truck broke down on the freeway. Can you do me a favor and let everyone know?
S: Sure! I'll make a little sign for you and post it at the exit.
E: I appreciate that. I'll be back tomorrow with your nachos!
S: Good. I was about to ask you that. :)
Esther just gave me my lunch for free and that she really appreciated me helping out. :)
How many of you would take a seat in this room? The walls are padded and the floor is made of rubber. The chair is solid plastic with many holes in it and I don't even want to guess what's on the floor. There are no windows!
I think one of the best warnings is: "This superman suit will NOT give you the ability to fly." Have you come across a warning that just seems stupid?
Of course, I played a joke on the softball league where I volunteer and have been getting lots of feedback :) So far about 45 people have fallen victim to my devious prank...
Did you do anything to celebrate April Fool's Day?
Did you see me rob this bank?' The customer replies, 'Yes!'
The bank robber raises his gun, points it at the customer and BANG! Shoots and kills him. He quickly moves to the next customer in line and says to the man, 'Did you see me rob this bank?' The man calmly responds 'No, but my wife did.’
One of the local television stations in South Louisiana actually aired an interview with a woman from New Orleans. The interviewer was asked if the complete devastation of the churches in the area had affected their lives.
Without hesitation, the woman replied,' I don't know about all those other people, but we haven't gone to Churches in years. We gets our chicken from Popeye's.'
My other friend and I were giving him a hard time about his pink shoes with green and brown trim. It was all in good fun... What do you think?
The guy started reaching into another trashcan and the lady tourist walks up to him and reaches out a $10 bill and says, "Go inside and get yourself lunch." The guy looks at her and shakes his head. She tries several times to get him to take the money but he refuses. He takes another bite from the bread and walks away.
The lady looks at me, and I raise my eyebrows giving her that, "You tried...What else can you do?" look.
Fish can drown.
I guess we assuming that it's water in our lungs that kills but it's the lack of oxygen that is the culprit in drowning. So...if something is reducing the oxygen from the water then a fish could drown in water.
I was shooting softball games today with my mp3 player soft enough so that I could hear what was going on. Sometimes I take photos of the parents in the stands and how they react to certain calls. For the most part the parents are there but not paying attention.
There have been plays that I have captured where the spectators say, "Come on blue! That was a terrible call." I look at the photo and see that the umpire was right. Sometimes they come up to me and ask, "Did you get that? She was safe, right?" I tell them they have to wait until I post the pictures on the web and they can check for themselves.
For the most part, the games give parents a way to catch up with their friends and what's going on with everyone lives pausing enough to see an exciting play then back to chatting.
Many of the umpires ask me to get their best side. As I took this photo, the spectators laughed and said, "You go, Sam!"
I wonder if he'll want a 5x7 of this?
I should have you guys send me photos of signs that you find interesting.
I wonder if anyone has compiled a list pre-election promises versus actual accomplishments. Real accomplishments, not the speech they give in January saying, "See...employment was up in December by 25%" and failing to note that it was part-time Christmas help that will be let go after the return season is over.
Oh...and who is voting for Ralph Nader?
Do you head right to the door and keep on going back further trying to get the closet that you can get? Are you the type that will wait as people are leaving and eyeball them and ask them if they are leaving as is common on college campus?
Have you ever "fought" someone for a parking spot because you had your blinker on for 5 minutes waiting for grandma to pack her trunk and someone just zoomed right into it from the other side?
I used to have a handicap parking placard and people would stare at me as I got out of my car, but would instantly change their expression when they saw me help my mom out of the car with a cane. My mom loved that we could park right in front! Basically this was the only time that I would go to the front.
Personally, I just park in the sparse area and beat those that are circling the lot. Heather can attest to that as I say, "My legs work perfectly fine how about yours?!" :)
Don't worry about running out as we've order a huge supply of these bags!
Heather: Daddy, what's your favorite number?
Heather: No, I mean like a smaller one, between 1 and 10.
Me: Hmmm, okay. 7.94!
Heather: Daddy...a number with no point in it. And it can only be 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, or 10.
Me: But you said between 1 and 10. You just included 1 and 10.
Heather: [stares at me with daggers]
Heather: A number from 1 to 10 ONLY with no point in it. You can pick the 1 or the 10 too.
Heather: Hey that's my favorite. Pick another one.
Heather: I forgot what I was gonna tell you.
Yup, I went out and bought an Apple iPhone on Thursday night. So, I've been playing with it and I like it so far. I've moved all my contacts over, and loaded some music, customized it a little, and ran it through it's paces.
Some interesting things that are missing is GPS navigation, but it gives you a general idea of where you are when you load up google maps and tap on the find me button using the cell towers. There is no voice activated anything, no movie recordings, but the iPhone's pictures are really nice. The internet access is slow but usable and I like the auto wifi leech mode. The iPhone uses your wireless connection for iTunes, and for faster youTube viewing.
Heather likes to use the iPhone to get on her myspace page, and watch youTube videos while we wait for our orders to arrive when dining out. I've sent gmail, and done all that other internet stuff but was dissappointed in the web apps. I'm signing up for the SDK so that I can write some native applications in a little bit and so far I like my iPhone.
The average speed of a house fly is 4.5 miles an hour.
And how exactly does one get a fly to cooperate in this experiment?
Just a fresher:
What is 'War of the Roses' in San Diego?
I heard that there is an old English tradition that states that on the 29th of February a woman can propose to a man. If he refuses then he has to pay up! That could be anything from an item of clothing or something of her choosing.
Ladies! Would you take advantage of this tradition if your man was taking too long to pop the question?
What do you think?
I went with my friend to purchase some computer stuff by my work, and I noticed the sign as we walked in. Zip Drives? What? I remember the 100mb zip drive a bazillion years ago, but wondered why they still had it listed on the sign.
As my friend is looking around for stuff, I ask the sales guy, "I'm looking for some zip disks. Where are you stashing them?" The guy looks at me with that "dude?! What are you talking about?" look.
I point to the sign and say, "Well...you sell zip Zip Drives, you sell the disk for them too, right?" Then we both start laughing. He says, "I guess we should take that sign down, huh?"
Did you ever have a zip drive?
Me: Dunno. You have something in mind?
Me: Okay, how about Anthony's?
Her: Nah, I had fish yesterday.
Me: Uh...The little deli.
Her: I'm not in the mood for a sandwich.
Her: We just had that Friday.
Her: That would take too long.
Me: Chineese? What do you want?
Her: I told you! Anything except Chineese.
Me: Okay where do they sell this "Anything," so we can get moving. Otherwise, I'm going to Esther's.
Her: Geez! Touchy today aren't you?
The only time that I did watch was for extra credit for my speech class in college, but these types of shows don't interest me. How about you?
By the time I got there the $5.00 parking guy was gone but finding a spot was still pretty hard. Luckily, I found a spot after someone left to go get lunch. Heather did well and the team had fun even though they didn't do that well overall. During the downtime, Heather took over my camera and the girls laughed at all the pictures that I had taken since everyone has funny expressions when they're playing.
Another side note was that the indoor bathrooms were for the women, and the men had to go outside and use the portable toilets out in the parking lot. Gee thanks.
The tongue is the fastest healing part of a human body.
I guess our body thinks we'll be damaging our tongue on a regular basis?
Later he stated, " you know they come here on short-term permits but they stay longer than they are supposed to and take our jobs. Now the Americans can get more fares."
What's your view?
There was only one other person brave enough to weather the rain. No wait at all. :) Esther asked, "what kind of soda do you want?" As I turn, she smiles tells me that she is merely testing me. She knows that I haven't had any sodas in about 10 days.
As we walked down I said, "don't be surprised if he starts wearing a neck brace and that broken light turns into a couple of thousand dollars, wants his car painted and ..." She laughed at me...but not for long. She got faxed a quote for $1,500. He wants the fender replaced, tail light, oh, and the car painted since there are now some scratches :) btw, that's not the accident picture in case you're wondering.
Just wait a couple more days and his neck will start to get sore. Then I got smacked in the arm then get asked, "Oh...can I borrow $2.00?"
Did you do anything exciting or just kick back?
It had just rained the previous couple of days so our field crew was up early getting the fields ready to play. They did a great job.
I was there the whole day and the kids are the ones that are the most excited to see me because they know that I will be taking their action shots (if there is some) and posting it on the website.
Heather was supposed to help me photograph the T-Ballers but she went to Arizona to watch her sister during the long weekend. I called her during the 7:00 p.m. game and asked for a little update. I told her that she'd get photo credit if she helped me. :)
Some people asked about "the hat," but I couldn't find it. Regardless, I didn't get sunburned this year. Two and half more months before all-stars...
Today my friend and I went to China Camp for lunch downtown. While we were waiting for our order, we were reading the little place mats with all the Chinese astrology signs. This just happens to be Chinese year of the rat and I found out that I was born in the year of the horse but most importantly that I'm 95% compatible with a woman born in the year of the dog. I take all this stuff just for fun...how about you? Or do you believe that when you are born determines everything?
I had a surprise for the girls in the softball league. I changed all the colors to pink, and made a little softball valentine with an arrow going into the softball. Now what to come up with for April Fool's day. The season starts this Saturday and I'm exited about seeing everything, it's been a long time since I've seen some people....
It's not what a guy thinks concerning what will make his girl happy, it's what she tells him about what will make her happy that counts! If he ignores this, then she'll be gone...because he just didn't listen.
By telling, I mean: her reaction, body language, mood, communication, etc. Remember that just because you stop fighting about things doesn't mean that it's not an issue anymore. It's that she's given up for whatever reason.
Then when it's too late, it doesn't help to blame it on everything or anyone else and think that you had no part in it, because then even your friends (the honest ones will just tell you you screwed up, and learn for the next relationship) will know you left things out of your story.
Since she has several IM clients they were fighting for control of the camera and neither could use it.
Do you use video when you can't be with your loved ones?
These are actually two shadow photos pasted on top of each other so that you could see my arms since I had to hold the camera with the other. :)
If I were still doing my 365 then would this count as a self-portrait?
We went to volleyball practice later and she and I arrived early and played a little 2 on 5 against her team mates for fun. We did okay :) I'd love to have her as my partner for 2 on 2 sand volleyball since now she can probably do better than the majority of our weekly sand volleyball crew.
I had someone try this at work yesterday and they said they could do this. Can you? I think Mythbusters tried to disprove this one with a GIANT-sized paper, but I didn't see the episode. Try it and let me know what you find.
In the particular scene, I was supposed to say, "Let's give it up for Buddy Holly and his new hit single." I jumped into camera view with my cheesy little microphone and kept substituting signal instead of single. Luckily, I was doing this with all my friends, and at first we couldn't stop laughing. But after several takes, we all got frustrated and by the time I did get it right, my picnic red checkered jacket was on crooked. Nice! We ran out of film and exhausted our budget so it was a wrap.
We played it for the class and somehow the speed was wrong, and that combined with the crooked jacket, messed up chipmunk sound; people thought we did it on purpose. It was a hit, a Charlie Chaplin type wannabe movie. We got an "A."
Have you ever thought you messed something up bad, but things ended up better than you thought?
These women go wild driving up and down frantically looking for another guy after their first choice is gone. At times, they then then just give up and ask for anyone ages, "30-40." I'd hate to be the last guy standing after over one hundred other guys got picked, but at least they have a date, right?
If you were a guy would you do this? And, if you're a woman; would you drive down the mile and pick a man?
How many of you got automated calls to remind you about Super Tuesday? I got some on my home and cell. I guess they assume nobody watches the news, gets on the internet, listens to the radio, or checks their mail.
Does it annoy you when you get home and turn on the tv and the anchor on any major news channel says, "With 5% of the vote in...we are declaring Marey Carey the winner!"
I know why it's valued that high (71+ million USD) but it flucuates rather sharply but what's a few million dollars? Do you know why it's valued that high?
Mosquitos are attracted to people who just ate bananas
Hmmm...Now there's a gag gift idea - a banana spray! I wonder if that would work?
The final score Giants 17 Patriots 14. The game was rather boring except for the 4th quarter when the game came down to do or die. Sorry, I'm not into defensive type games. Shoot-outs please!
I would have liked to have seen the Patriots win and go undefeated, but having a huge upset is pretty good, too. In the end it turned out to be a good game with Eli coming through at the end. One thing with all the hype concerning their undefeated season is that the Patriots probably will be in one of those Southwest Airline commerials - "Wanna get away?"
Did you like the game, half-time show or commercials the most, IF you watched?
When you go to a restaurant, do you look at the menu but order the samething anyway?
Beginning in 2010 all new vehicles will be equipped with a "SRRD." This self reporting revenue device is connected to the vehicle's GPS and stores your entire trip speed/driving behavior record in memory. If you've noticed those little cut-out circles in the road, or the sensors like the "HOV" monitors, then you know they have been modified to gather your SRRD data as you drive by.
How many times have you broken the speed limit, and for how long? Any violation lasting longer than 6 seconds (time required to pass a vehicle) will be ruled a violation and auto-reported. This can get really expensive because you can have multiple violations in one trip. They've anticipated this and you can take advantage of "Section 19: Multiple violation charges can be reduced to lower price, provided that it is paid via guaranteed method as outlined in Section 17 within 48 hours of the reported violation by the SRRD. A non-refundable convenience fee will charged separately for using this option."
You may think that removing the device will help but the penalty is steep for doing this: "Section 2: Removing or tampering with the SRRD in anyway, shape, or form including the distruption of the transmission of data to and from the system is punishable by a $25,000 USD fine, one (1) year of incarceration or both."
As you may have guessed, the auto industry has resisted such plans and they were appeased in part when the Federal government pushed legislation through via earmarks in locations where the automakers have plants.
What do you think of all of this?
I chambered a round and was hoping that they would go away just from hearing that distinctive sound. My little dog "chewy" was chasing me around the house and I had my .22 rifle read also. By the way, did I tell you I was terrified with all the lights on in the house? I totally freaked out when I heard the window screen move.
I put one round THROUGH the wall and I heard it hit the sand pile right outside and also heard the "bad guys" start running. Right after that I went outside with Chewy, and fired three more rounds at the dirt piles. It was dark but I could see three figures running down the railroad tracks.
My mom found the hole right away when they got back and asked what I had done. I told her and she said she wouldn't tell my dad if I helped her fix it - Deal. I was still allowed to target practice everyday so all was well. :)
No word in the english language rhymes with month.
AND Caller ID is illegal in California.
Someone showed me the first one and then someone else showed me the second one at work, both had the #69 on it.
How many of you think the neighbor will return the favor?
I saw several "softball people" at Heather's volleyball practice, and they came up to me and gave me a hug. We talked for a little bit and caught up. Today's practice was a short one, and at one point Heather asked if I wanted her to ask the coach if I could practice with them. I'll probably take her up on it next time. :)
After dropping Heather off at her friends house, I hit a bookstore and vegged out for a little. Nothing exciting...
My invoices got "processed!" This means that hopefully in thirty days, I'll actually have some money. :)
I had lunch in one of the new remodeled Carl's Jr, but I wonder if they think that will get more people to eat there?
Do you think her punishment was appropriate?
I like the roman numerals because they remind me of when I learned how to tell time. I wonder how long before kids won't even know how to tell time without it being digital.
I'm here at the draft right now texting my daughter and telling her what team her friend is on.
But, I just see this as a reminder of how fragile we are and that you can be gone NOW for whatever reason, either natural or not.
Keep in touch with people and don't use the excuse that you're too busy!
The lady looks at me and says:
Lady: ¿Como te puedo ayudar?
Sam: ¡Quiero una carne asada burrito y una quesadilla para qui!
Lady: [smiles at me] se dice, quiero un burrito de carne asada.
Sam: Entonces, quiero un burrito de carne asada y la quesadilla, por favor!
Lady: Muy bien.
I rarely get to practice my Spanish and I found it rather interesting that she corrected my Spanish in front of everyone, an older lady just smiled as I got my lesson.
The mini-minor draft went well, just two more nights. It's gonna be a long week and I'm already tired.
A snail breathes through it's foot
Snail have feet? What? I thought they slithered!
This was the first time that I went down to Discovery Park during a registration and noticed that one of my friends had signed up. I saw a bunch of familiar faces, and they came up to me and shook my hand as I sat down on the ground with my laptop and long range wireless. I had called Heather and asked if I could do registrations from there if my connection wasn't good - "Sure Daddy."
It was a cold clear night but at least it was a full moon. It's also been three years since my mom died. Time flies...
For some reason the teachers didn't think highly of my suggestion with starting with "Z" this time...
At least they didn't lose by the 14 points they were supposed to lose by. The hardest part was watching the the Patriots just killing the clock on their final possession - 1st Down, after 1st Down. 'till next year.
The Patriots are 18-0 and only one game from the "perfect" season. Can they do it?
