Starting your own business?

Nice little article about starting a business...

Welcome to the MSDN Library

That's one spicy meatball....

This just in from Jim:

TAIPEI (Jan 29) - The decomposing remains of a 66-ton sperm whale exploded on a busy Taiwan street, showering nearby cars and shops with blood and organs and stopping traffic for hours, local newspapers said.

The 56-foot dead whale had been on a truck headed for an autopsy at a university earlier this week, when gases from internal decay caused its entrails to explode in the southern city of Tainan.

The whale had died after it was beached on the southwestern coast of the island.

We;ve been watching this show the past few weeks. Pretty entertaining. One thing I've learned, among other lessons in busines, is that Donald Trump has awful taste in decor. Anyway, my wife has a quote in the article...

Snakes

This looks cool, but I haven't been able to view it as of yet. It seems the server is bogged down...

Snakes

I'm scared...so very scared.

I've read about "the conveyor" before. I sure hope it doesn't stop working. If it does, we're all screwed. Abrupt climate changes, droughts, resources become scarce, which leads to war...cats and dogs living together...

So screwed

Escape!

The Rules According to Guys

Stole this from some other blog...hehe

The Rules According to Guys

We always hear 'the rules' from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note...these are all numbered '1' ON PURPOSE!

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday = sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say 'nothing,' we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine...Really.

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as snack foods, the shotgun formation, or other women.

1. I am in shape. Round is a shape.

1. Thank you for reading this; Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight, but did you know men really don't mind that, it's like camping

I LOVE BACON


But if you are reading nutritional labels, perhaps bacon is not right for you. Bacon belongs to the hedonist, the throw-caution-to-the-winds sort who would eat a bacon sandwich with a side of bacon.

I saw this on Tribe.net. So sad...I feel sorry for him.

Farm - Raised Salmon Linked to Pollutants

Great. Try to be healthy and you end up raising your risk of cancer...


Eating more than a meal of farm-raised salmon per month, depending on its country of origin, could slightly increase the risk of getting cancer later in life, researchers conclude. They urge consumers to buy wild salmon and recommend that farmers change fish feed.

Karaoke and Busking

I've always wanted to try my hand at busking. Get out, see the people, practicing singing, donate any money I get to the homeless...Maybe not...we just got this game for X-mas for the Playstation; Karaoke Revolution...You compete against other people in karaoke. The game scores you on how well you sing the song based on the pitch of your voice, if you hit the note at the right time and hold it for the proper duration. Kelly kicked my butt. I was quite pissed. I'll have to practice some of those songs and get my revenge...


I have a much better chance of telling whether someone will like the music based on the way that they walk than based on their age, sex, or apparent income.

More on the lost Lottery Ticket

Wow this story is getting better and better...

Does anyone remember that TV show from 1983-84 Lottery!? I use to watch it all the time. I could of sworn it was on for more than one season, but according to IMDB, it wasn't...Ah youthful memories are becoming really hazy these days...

Valid ticket turned in for $162 million Mega Millions jackpot

That's gotta hurt...
