Yeah, I know.......I just make donuts for a living but I'd love to be a mouse in the White House when Bush's advisors try to explain to him why this guy is so important. For some reason George thinks he's in the drivers seat in as far as China/U.S. relations go. He ain't. The world economy is.
Bush oughta make real good friends with guys like Hu. Too bad things didn't go so well yesterday. If George only had a brain. (Give this link a few seconds to load)
Could you imagine if China sent several hundred thousand troops to Iran to help us out if our diplomatic attempts to convince the Iranians to stop making weapons grade plutonium failed? The Iranians would be shitting in their pants......those Chinese don't f**k around.
Do I agree with the way China treats it citizens? Nope, but every country in this world is different then ours and America isn't going to convert every last person on the planet to our way of thinking, so we may as well make as many friends as possible and try not to shoot the folks that disagree with us.
Today's links are stress free with no scary pop-ups. Honest.
Today's science break. Some cool facts.
This has gotta be one of the dumbest inventions ever. I think I'll stick with my trusty VCR to record TV shows.
An elderly man in North Carolina had owned a large farm for several years.
He had a large pond in the back, fixed up nice; picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees. The pond was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming when it was built.
One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit.
As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee.
As he came closer , he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end.
One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you leave!"
The old man frowned and replied, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked." Holding the bucket up he said,
"I'm here to feed the alligator."
Moral: Old men can still think fast.
As disgusting as this looks....
....it makes me wanna go buy one.
Good news.....most of us have jobs. Bad news....half of us work at a fast food restaurant or Wal-Mart.
A reader sent me this link in reply to my blog posting yesterday. Yeah, I guess it makes sense, but it would really be cool if everyone could cut back driving and rode a bike more. Even just a little bit would help.
This dude weighs as much as one of my legs.
