Let's get right into the topics
I don't get why people are making a big deal about his contract. There is about a 0% chance he plays out the whole thing. It is pretty much the same guaranteed money that Brady just got with his extension. The cap hits in those last years will be ridiculous. Unless Flacco becomes the Lebron of the NFL he isn't finishing out this contract without reworking it. It would seem as though anyone with half a brain would know that. Of course media folk are dumber than politicians, or perhaps just barely smarter, either way they are dumb so it doesn't surprise me.
It used to be that when I was in the passing lane and got stuck behind someone going about 15mph lower than the speed limit I sure as shit knew it was some old lady. Or an Asian. Sorry Asians. In any case that changed to it was either an old lady, an Asian or someone on their cell phone. That was frustrating because it meant seemingly every day I had to whip around someone on the right because they were going too slow. Now keep in mind I don't do the whip around thing unless you are actually going less than the speed limit or if nobody else is on the road. In morning and afternoon traffic there is always some other cars so the whip around only happens when some asshat is going too slow. Anyway.....now it seems that more often than not it is some old guy driving. That never used to happen (at least on my way into work). Sometimes you'd get stuck behind the 90yr old guy driving but that was not during rush hour and old people used to avoid the highway like the plague. Apparently sometime in the last year we hit the era of old men driving to work in the morning and fucking everything up. I figure they cost me 4 minutes every work day. 4 minutes/day X 5 days/week X 48 weeks/year = 960 minutes a year. That's 16 hours of wasted time caused by old men drivers. Either retire, drive in the slow lane or speed up. Gorram old people.
Talked with cmtem about what to do if I was in some sort of accident and needed life support. I told her that I wanted robot parts. She was not amused, but I am 100% serious. If the doctors say I have no shot at living because my _______ is broke then give me a robotic ________. At least give me a chance. I know this shit exists. Somewhere some scientist guy has a possibly working model of a robotic heart. Give me that heart, let's test this shit out. Robot brain, fire it up. I don't even care if it is a MAC. I'd prefer something Windows based, but beggars can't be choosers. Give me that MAC brain, it won't crash as much, but on the flip side it probably doesn't have the software that allows me to play football or softball.
One day I am just going to do a post all on commercials. They don't screen them or something. They always have some glaring error or something that isn't thought through. I bet the Mad Men guys don't make errors like they do today.
Been reading a lot of Cracked.com lately. I like that site. Pretty funny stuff. It gets the tem seal of approval, which in the internet world means it is for nerds.
King of the Nerds
Congratulations to that King of the Nerds show. It officially broke the record for most commercials I have seen without ever once having the desire to watch the show. At 2,256 commercials it has taken over the record. Over two thousand commercials and not once have I said to myself "I should watch that."
TCS prize packs should be shipped out next week.
