Can you shatter glass with your voice?
  • "Taken from the TV show 'Mythbusters', this shows some dude bust up a glass with his voice in extreme slo-mo. If you watch it in full-screen you can see the shards vibrate."

Students get field experience with moose
  • "High School students butchered a moose carcass during an educational hunt." (with picture!)
  • My suburban prep school never really had any field trips like this. We went to museums and saw how the Iroquois built their lodges. Our biggest excitement - one time, on the way to the museum, we saw a black guy! Although at the time we didn't know what he was.

Was the melody of "The Star Spangled Banner" taken from an old drinking song?
  • If they could sing that, they must have been much better in those days at singing while drunk. Today's drunks have trouble with "100 bottles of beer on the wall."

'Beer, booze, music, babes' - the Rollergirls
  • My home town of Austin, Texas is now home to the Lonestar Rollergirls league, the latest reincarnation of Roller Derby. I regret to say that I have not yet made my way out for a match, or a chukker, or whatever they call it. I've heard it's really fun because the crowd goes nuts.
  • One of the teams is called Las Putas del Fuego. (The blazing hookers.) Their team members include Holly Penyo, Lotta Dinero, and Venus Envy. Venus proudly wears number 9.5"
  • Here is the league home page

Carrot Top - not funny, but ripped!

Cowboys lose, draw the short straw.
  • The Chiefs finish the year as the best team NOT to make the playoffs, the only 10-6 team left peeking through the knothole
  • The Houston Texans were the only 2-14 team, thus "winning" the Reggie Bush lottery. They somehow managed to blow a lead against the 49ers, in approximately the same way I always used to finish second in the Aztec games in my earlier incarnation. *
  • Da Bearz got very lucky. They drew a first round bye with the second seed in the NFC, even though their record was only 11-5
* I was an Aztec Warrior in an earlier life. As you may know, the winners of the annual Aztec Games got their hearts cut out, because only the finest specimens were considered worthy sacrifices to the gods. Although I always won in practice heats, I set the record of finishing second in The Games for 22 consecutive years, consistently disappointing the people who bet on me. One year I blew a 50 yard lead when I pulled up lame near the tape in the 100 yard dash. I told the reporter for the Aztec Times, "I'm disappointed, but I'm just going to have to train harder so I can get my heart cut out next year."

"Six German airline passengers who said they were being held against their will on an aircraft stuck on the runway for hours during a snowstorm have filed 'false imprisonment' charges"
  • Somebody give them my cell phone number in case they get stuck on the runway again. My airline would have taken off. That's my latest acquisition, Buddy Holly Airways. Toll-free, just call 1-800-DEATH, and ask for my pilot "Cap'n Bucky".
