Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

    Holy Cow! First our computers and now our CAMERAS are racist?
     
    Face detection, one of the latest “intelligent” technologies to make it to consumer cameras, is supposed to make photography more convenient by warning you when someone blinks. Recently a Taiwanese-American girl bought her mom a camera. When she took a picture of her brother a message flashed across the screen saying, “Did someone blink?”
     
    Although probably a bit offended she seemed to take it in stride by posting a blog that said, “Racist Camera! No, I did not blink… I’m just Asian!”
     
    It’s nice to know that there are still some people who can realize honest mistakes and not have to sue over an issue like this.

    So what’s the first thing you think of when you go to the bathroom during the holidays? Ever thought you’d see Santa Claus smiling up at you? Hey, even bathrooms need to be festive sometime during the year.

    Talk about some silly shit! In sports news last week, construction workers building the new Yankee Stadium revealed that another worker who is a big Red Sox fan hoped to put a “jinx” on the Red Sox Nation’s number one enemy by secretly burying a Red Sox jersey in the concrete foundation of the new stadium.

    The Yankees didn’t appear very concerned. Basically stating there is no truth to the rumor. In a statement released Friday, they called it a 10 day late April Fool’s joke.

    Saturday it appeared as if their tune had changed. After about five hours of drilling, they finally located the shirt under 2 feet of concrete. Sunday, they pulled the jackhammered No. 34 David Ortiz Red Sox jersey in shreds from the battered hole in the foundation.

    Two days ago it was a joke to the Yankee organization. Now they are destroying the concrete foundation of their new
    $ 1.3 Billion structure? There has even been talk with the district attorney’s office about possible criminal charges against Gino Castignoli, the worker who allegedly buried the jersey in cement.

    I guess with all the money the Steinbrenner family has and can throw around, a few days off schedule and a few more dollars to repair the foundation of their new home, what’s the harm. Right?

    I think the thing the Yankees need to be more concerned about is not a so-called “jinx” but the safety of their fans and members of all the visiting teams. I’m no structural engineer, but I do know I wouldn’t feel safe knowing some paranoid people went drilling, digging and jackhammering just for a small piece of fabric that would have no effect on the structural integrity of the new stadium.

    As you may have heard the Bush Administration said each and every one of us would now get a nice rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will all go to the Arabs, if we purchase a computer it will all go to India, if we purchase fruit and vegetables it will all go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatamala, if we purchase a good car it will all go to Japan, if we purchase useless crap it will all go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.
    We need to keep that money here in America, so the only way to keep that money here at home is to buy prostitutes and beer, since those are the only businesses still in the US.

    A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year.

    Another study found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of Beer a year.

    That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles per gallon.”

    Not bad MPG’s for these times!

    And if you do, it should be slightly warped. I sent this to a friend and they didn’t find much humor in it. Have to tell you though, if you do need to satisfy your curiousity, I suggest you do NOT use a computer at work where others can see.

    Also, if you offended by anything of an adult nature, do NOT click on this link.

    If you do not have a slightly twisted sense of humor, do NOT click on this link.

    Most important, if you do not have a basic understanding of computer knowledge, do NOT click on this link!

    Remember you came to me, I did not send this to you. Consider that your warning. Otherwise have fun,

    You are going to love this one….lol

    Today’s woman does not want to be treated like a sex object! Don’t leer at her or drool over her. Just treat her like you would any other person.

    But wait am I missing something here?

    Why does it seem that lots of women today dress like this girl above? That’s not asking for respect, that’s asking for stares and rude comments. or is it?

    What’s up here girls? You’re sending us guys mixed messages!

    OK, so I go to this holiday party and everyone was dressed up nice for the event. Even the most conservative of girls I work with were dressed like this girl above. Is a company function a reason to dress like a slut? I mean come on. If you dress like this and don’t mind men making (decent) remarks like hey you look nice tonight, then I suppose it is ok. But if you dress like this and act like a prude (thinking just because he comments he wants in my pants), then you have issues girl!

    Lets try and be a bit more clear as to what you are trying to say now. Is that too much to ask?

    What a surprise I had today.  Driving home from work I actually saw LESS people talking on their cell phones while driving than usual. I DID however see more people TEXTING while driving! Around 6 or so people. This in my opinion is way TOO MANY!

    How the hell did these people survive before the invention of mobile communication devices? A question that may never be answered. (sigh)

    I guess the most amazing thing I saw today was a woman who got cut off in traffic. SHE was on her cell phone talking and didn’t skip a beat in her conversation. Now THAT takes skill!

    Until next time, keep your eyes on the road and keep reaching for the horn.

    By the way, anyone interested in helping to protect yourself or others you care about, go here:

    Stop talking and start driving!

    Why do old women drive Mustangs, Camaros, or whatever the hot car of the year is etc.? Does it help them score with younger guys easier or were they an easy sell at the dealership?

    OK, So last night was Halloween. Black cats, goblins and trick or treaters. Or are they? What the hell happened to creativity and imagination in making a halloween costume? The kids these days throw on their best t-shirts and jeans and grab a backpack or pillow case and just walk up to your door and hold it out, not saying a word! C’mon kids, use some initiative and Trick or Treat like you mean it!!
