Thank goodness for Panera

September 20, 2008 at 11:36 am (Food, Random, TV) (, , , , , , , , )

Ok so our internet and cable is completely out so here I am at Panera. Boo no internet (also Panera is lame because it wouldn’t serve me soup 15 mins before lunch despite the fact that the soup was ready when we picked up our food 😛 ). We think the line is down behind our garage but currently we’re not sure. Hopefully it gets sorted out today but who knows. Until then I must find something to occupy myself instead of the WoW filled day I had originally planned 😦 . Until I can post, enjoy the picture of Gir missing his cupcake as much as I miss the internet.

Stupid celebrities and their rumors

September 6, 2008 at 4:24 pm (Random) (, , , , , , , , , , )

So despite the huge rumors going on around the internet, it’s been reported that Miley Cyrus hasn’t died due to a car crash or any other reason. Apparently someone who can’t spell started the rumor too so the people that spread it are pretty dumb. I think it started on Wikipedia too, which just goes to show you how much people would believe if you put it up there. Anyway Ms. Ihaveabadwig is still alive so all the little girls who cried about it can relax now. I was all excited to not have to hear any more bad rip offs of other people’s music Hannah Montana songs or see any of the gross wigs in stores 😦 . Guess they’re gonna be sticking around. Also since I can’t stand to put another picture of Hannah Montana on my blog, like ever again so here’s an amazing picture of Gir.

Google’s new browser wants your soul

September 2, 2008 at 10:48 am (Random, Technology) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

It looks like Google is trying another thing to steal people’s souls without them noticing. The Google Chrome beta will be launching today. They supposedly hit send a bit too early on their announcment and now have a webcomic explaining how Chrome works. I wouldn’t say announcing it yesterday was all that early. I’m surprised there wasn’t an announcement before then seeing as how it could’ve been completely hyped up by now. I guess they thought the secret slip-up would make it more exciting.

Anyway Chrome is Google’s first ever browser designed to run faster and load faster as well as work better with all of the things “that didn’t exist when the first browsers were created.”-Google. It’s also supposed to be more stable, so for Firefox’s sake I hope they put out their hotfix soon. (I die a little inside everytime my Firefox 3 freezes 😦 .) I won’t list all of the features that are supposed to be better because that would be a waste of their dorky little webcomic. [Edit: Also there’s a “privacy mode” included in this browser that lets you browse incognito. As they say in the comic “what happens in this tab stays in this tab.” It uses an example of buying a present for your special someone without them knowing. Basically you can view all your bookmarks but nothing is saved to your browser history. lol is it just me or does this sound like a secret porn tab? 😉 Check out pages 22 and 23 of the webcomic to see what I’m talking about.]

This will make the 4th major alternative browser available. I actually found this chart on Wikipedia showing how many people use each of the major browsers. It’s really sad that so many people still use Internet Explorer. I am forced to at work though so I can understand how that can add up. I’ll probably try and mess around with Chrome once I get my computer fixed. (Stupid power supply had to go and die on Labor Day weekend. 😦 )
Dark blue-Internet Explorer (73.81%)
Orange-Mozilla Firefox (18.43%)
Grey-Safari (6.14%)
Red-Opera (0.71%)
Green-Netscape (0.62%)
Cerulean(aka the color that burns your eyes)-Other (0.29%)

Also I’d like to say sorry about that not really posting since Friday 😦 . I had a really busy weekend doing Labor Day stuff starting on Friday when I had to take care of my fiance after his wisdom teeth surgery.

Montauk Monster Rumors

August 7, 2008 at 1:13 pm (Movie, Random, TV) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

[Edit: Since some people can’t read and like to jump to conclusions about my thoughts (without reading my other posts on the Montauk Monster I might add) I’d just like to say that I don’t whole-heartedly believe all of this. I’m just stating some interesting thoughts and possibilities about the matter.]

So there are a lot of rumors going around that Monty is just part of a big viral marketing campaign. I read an article on www.montauk-monster.com describing how they examined the video with the 3 girls talking to Plum Tv. Anyways Nicky (The owner of montauk-monster.com) seems to think that it has something to do with the Cloverfield sequel. I think that this is semi-viable but it seems like it’s been too long. I would’ve thought that if it was a viral marketing scheme, a few days after it was released there would be teasers on tv or on the internet somewhere easily accessible. There could’ve even been a camcorder (or whatever they’re going to have the 2nd point of view be in the Cloverfield sequel) left with the creature. It all seems very fishy to me but the original Cloverfield had a huge amount of viral marketing. So maybe this is just them building up the excitement very early.

But there is good news. A replica of the Montauk Monster is now available on eBay. lol it’s about time! I’ve been waiting to buy my very own Monty T-shirt but nobody’s selling them. Maybe they respect him too much to put him on a T-shirt but I doubt it considering the spoof pictures that have been made using photoshop.

Just look at him, isn’t he cute? lol the winning bidder even has the option of adding more blood to him. How fun 😉

Montauk Monster Update

August 2, 2008 at 7:26 pm (Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

A new picture of the Montauk monster was released on Friday. This new picture makes it seem like the 2nd picture takers rolled over the creature. Also, the legs seem to have been unbound by that small leather strap. This picture seems a little shady already because of the missing strap.

There are some things that do make a lot of sense about this picture though. The new picture definitely makes it look like a bloated, decomposed dog. On the underside where it was laying against the sand it’s not as dark seeing as how it was out of the sun. It also still has some fur on this side. There are 2 flies more visibly shown on this picture giving proof to its actual size being around that of a dog.

The Gawker and I are still not convinced along with many other people. A new interview with the 3 girls that were the “first” picture takers is also out. They show Plum’s Nick Leighton their camera with the picture in it and also the 2nd angle shot which is different than the rolled over pictures (That’s 5 pictures now including the new 3). The face looks different in these new pictures as well if you ask me. Nick Leighton also reveals that they’ve checked with several scientists who all think it’s neither a dog nor a raccoon (Still can’t believe you said it was a raccoon Jeff…). Anyways you can watch the interview for yourself and see what you think about it (And notice the dumb girls who supposedly took the pictures).

I always wanted to live forever…jk

July 31, 2008 at 12:19 pm (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , )

Some biochemists in California think that within 10 years they’ll be able to use nanotechnology to put enzymes in water. CoQ10 is an enzyme that our body naturally produces but slowly decreases its production with age.

And yet it’s vital for the body’s basic functioning, as it helps our cells convert sugars to energy.

io9.com

These biochemists hope that by getting more of this enzyme as well as other vitamins, the average human life expectancy can increase greatly since organs should stay more productive. They’re comparing it to putting iodine in salt in the 1920’s.

I’d just like to point out that Californians get everything first. First it was Pinkberry, then the new Honda FCX Clarity, and now water that makes you live longer? Come on lol. Anyways some of the people that commented on this article I read made very good points. I think I’ll list a few just because I find them entertaining and you can check out the rest for yourself by reading the full article.

1. “Tag this: ‘whatcouldpossiblygowrong?’.”

2. “It’s people! CoQ10 is made of people!!!”

3. “Isn’t this how at least one zombie film started?”

4. “So you start putting a nutrient that your body creates anyway into the drinking water. Your body senses it has enough Coq10 and stops natural production. Boom. Your now an addict.”

5. “Forget nanotechnology. Lets bioengineer a new species of tapeworm that lives in your gut, stops growing after it reaches a preset length, and produces all the vitamins and enzymes that we don’t normally, as long as it gets a steady diet of fats and proteins.
I mean, worst case scenario, it evolves sentience, wraps itself around your brainstem, and makes you talk in a reverb-heavy voice. I could live with that.
Welcome to the Hotel California! You can check out any time you like, but you cant ever leave.”

Cool shirts :)

July 21, 2008 at 5:05 pm (Random) (, )

So I found these really cool shirts on threadless. I especially love this fake Loch Ness one cuz I’ve actually been there and took a rock :). The impossible love one is just cute because it’s kinda sad :(. I find it odd how threadless does their posing with people in the pictures cuz usually the scene behind them seems a little too weird to be real life. Whatever works for you I guess :).
