This is not a fake picture. On June 2nd some dude collided with the front of a bike race 15 minutes in to the 21 mile race going between Playa Bagdad and Matamoros, across from Brownsville in Texas. "Police think he was drunk and asleep at the wheel and ploughed into the front of the race injuring at least thirteen and killing one." WTF ? What do they mean 'they think he was drunk' If the dude wasn't drunk then he must have been trying to be a multiple murderer. ( what time of day was this...if the race was only 15 min. in...it was probably 10am...what was this guy doing being drunk at that time ??) I do have a few questions regarding the picture...wtf is with the black mustang ? If this was a cycle road race, what's that car doing there ? If it's the lead car, why didn't he alert the pack when he saw the drunk approaching ? (man up dude, throw the car in front of the on coming drunk and save some lives..his insurance, provided he has some, will cover the damage) Also, usually during these kinds of races, the cops have areas sectioned off or at least are watching the traffic....where are the cops ? Wouldn't the people at the front of the pack start to slow when they saw the green 1970 chevy impala coming at them...I mean, really, damn the race dude, get the hell out of the way. It looks like the leader of the pack did (dude on the left). He probably was thanking his gods that he pulled over. In any case, I hope they throw the book at this drunk ass.
Worst over for Missisippi flooding, losses tallied

Scaffolders appeared to spell the name of the superhero film backwards, erecting the last four letters before the first three were mounted. This meant that just as it was time for a fag break, the only letters in place rudely spelt out c**k providing plenty of giggles for the labourers. [Emphasis added]
This just in, The Sun is even more immature than I am.

FROM THE TIMES OF INDIA -
A glass of red wine a day not only helps keep the heart healthy, but as it turns out, it can also help battle obesity. And if you are a teetotaller who would rather stay away from spirits, don’t fret because just eating grapes will also have the same effect. As it turns out, the thing responsible for this fat fighting phenomenon is resveratrol, a compound present in grapes and red wine, according to a new study. Researchers at the University of Ulm in Germany carried out a study to see whether past research of resveratrol protecting laboratory mice from the health problems of obesity, also applied to humans by changing the size or function of fat cells. The German team used a strain of human fat cell precursors, called preadipocytes, which develop into mature fat cells. They found that resveratrol not only inhibited the pre-fat cells from increasing and prevented them from converting into mature fat cells, but that it also hindered fat storage. What especially interested the boffins was that resveratrol reduced production of certain cytokines (interleukins 6 and 8), substances that may be linked to the development of obesity-related disorders, such as diabetes and clogged coronary arteries. "Resveratrol has anti-obesity properties by exerting its effects directly on the fat cells. Thus, resveratrol might help to prevent development of obesity or might be suited to treating obesity," said the study's lead author, Pamela Fischer-Posovszky, PhD, a pediatric endocrinology research fellow in the university's Diabetes and Obesity Unit.

I believe that once the little guy makes his appearance, we can start making travel plans for the next year. I may have to do a trip to Qatar and Abu Dhabi for work in the next 2 months. But as far as family travel goes, most of the summer will be at Lake Koocanusa. Then it will be followed by a Mexico trip in Jan. Then I think Ireland next summer ( throw a trip to the UK in there for me ).
I'll just finish out fathers day, hanging in front of the tele watching Pitch Black ( good movie...the sequel sucked ) and playing online poker.

Went and saw 'The Happening'....I think ol' M Night has to work a little harder...it;s all been down hill since Signs ( the strangers kicked this movies ass ). I would say, keep this one on hold for the cheap theaters.
Time to go for a walk.

I'm glad the NHL playoffs are over and that Cory is back on at it;s regular 7:00 pm time. I'm all caught up now, but the getting up 7:30 on Sunday is a pain.
Went a saw 'the strangers'. Damn good movie. It's good to see a small film do as well as this and be as good. Very creepy very good.
I got yelled at by the old grumpy bottle return guy. I'm not in there every day ( or every month or couple of months ) so I wasn't completely up to speed on the proper etiquette. I failed to remove the caps on a few plastic bottles and for that got a sturn yelling. I told dude to calm down and send the bottle tray back to me. He acted as if I crapped on his floor and called his mother a whore. I'll be sure to be more careful in dumping my bottles next time ( mind you, for the 13$ i got I'm not sure it was worth the effort....so I'll be looking for the local bottle drives )
my knee hurts under the knee cap
