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:

Guns and Liquor sold here!

Only in America can you purchase a fifth of vodka AND a gun at the same time. Plus, you don’t even need to get your fat ass out of your car to get them!

The End of the Aspire Visa Credit Card (thank god)

I’ve had an Aspire Visa card for about 3 years now, and today, finally, I got a letter stating that they were discontinuing Aspire Visa. During my time with this awful credit card company, I’ve never made a late payment, and my limits were regularly increased.

I called to verify today that the entire Aspire program was being shut down (not just my card).

Here is the letter I received today:

The audio alone in this video makes it worth playing.

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!

Airtran’s Awful Promotion: Crazy Eights

I usually open Airtran’s frequent emails about good deals on fares, and their A+ Rewards program. I’m a big fan of Airtran, and I fly it whenever I can, but this latest marketing “promotion” is just awful.

Are you kidding me?! My fare will end in 8? What kind of promotion is that? Now, I understand that all airlines are struggling, but is this really the best they can do? Dear Airtran, stop it with the ridiculous emails for stupid promotions that have absolutely no value to me.

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?

Snake Regurgitates entire Hippo [video]

This huge snake regurgitates an entire baby hippo. The video is somewhat blurry, but you can clearly see the animal being regurgitated. Gross.

Hang up on this number: 571-283-6405

This number has been calling my company’s range of external phone numbers. It is an automated script that announces that you have been selected to receive a free satellite TV. It gives you the option to either “remove yourself from the list” or be connected to an agent.

I recommend you hang up. This is a scam that you want nothing to do with.
