Michael Jackson is Dead

TMZ is reporting that Michael Jackson has died of cardiac arrest. CNN isn’t reporting it yet, but twitter is buzzing about it. Word is that he choked on a pair of little boy’s underwear. Da da dum!

They claim they performed CPR in the ambulance but they were unable to revive him.

RIP, you perv.

Union Workers Credit Services Scam

If you receive a letter like this, beware! They simply take your 37 dollar “membership fee” and you’ll probably hear nothing ever again. I received this letter yesterday, and I live in the Pensacola, FL area.

This letter looks legit.. they even have a website: http://www.unionworkerscredit.com

But the fact that they asked for no information other than my signature raised a few flags. Their website is also littered with ads, not very professional.

Here is the letter. Click to enlarge:

Creepy cell phone picture

Two weeks ago my sister bought a new cell phone. Last Thursday, after work, she crashed on the couch to watch some TV. Her son came into the living room, noticed the new phone sticking out of her purse, and asked if he could play with it. She said it was fine as long as he promised not to call or text anyone, and he agreed.

Around 11pm she started nodding off during the news, so she decided to tuck her son in before going to bed. She went to his room, but he wasn’t there. She found him sleeping on her bed with the phone in his hand. Browsing through the phone, she noticed only a few minor changes, a new background, ringtone, and a bunch of photos. She began deleting some of the pictures he had taken until she came upon the last one. It was her son, sleeping on her bed, but it was as though the picture had been taken by someone standing over him. It showed the left half of what appeared to be an elderly woman’s face. Nobody in my family knows who this is, and her son didn’t remember anything. We ended up filing a police report.

Here is the picture:

Pink Vodka - Caffeine infused vodka

Love getting completely tanked, but hate getting tired and passing out? Looking to shave a few years off your life? You’ve gotta try this caffeine and guarana infused vodka.


From what we could tell, Pink Vodka didn’t really taste different. It felt like I was drinking a middle-of-the-road vodka. However, after a few vodka/redbulls, the energy kicked in. I felt awake and upbeat for the rest of the night out, even with some additional heavy drinking.

Labeled as the “Perfect Party Spirit”, the bottle warns that each shot contains the equivalent intensity of about 3/4ths of a cup of coffee. Yowza!

After checking out their website, I noticed that it looks like they are developing “party” versions of Rum, Tequila, Gin, Sake, and…. White Whiskey! Ugh! That sounds disgusting to us.

If you’re a heart attack waiting to happen I would stay away from Pink Vodka, but if don’t mind waking up the next morning with a pulse of 140, go hog wild!

What ya gonna pick? Emtpy Pockets!

A co-worker of mine had an interesting experience with a Hot Pocket. This lean pocket was a little too lean for his liking perhaps. Look ma, no filling!

A regular Lean Pocket?
