Top Gear

Here's a video clip of one of my favorite shows, Top Gear. It's British, but it's still a dang good car show nontheless. This would be a great show for all you gear heads. Do a search for "Top Gear" in YouTube.

Top Gear Richard Hammond Crash

Here's a video clip of the crash that nearly killed one of the Top Gear hosts, Richard "Hamster" Hammond. Thank goodness he survived!

He was out for awhile. I thought the show was going to be canceled or something.

Crystal Cove Car Show

Here's a video of the Crystal Cove Car Show in Newport Beach, California. This is where I took my wife to see some hot exotic cars. I also went with Josh there too last year. It's too bad that they don't have the car show there anymore. They'll probably find another venue for this show since it's so popular. Once I find it, I'll be there!

Second Life Losing Its Virtues?

Here's a link to an article I came across on the L.A. Times. Some people have entered the world of Second Life seeking a utopia in which to live out their fantasy lives. However, due to the tremendously growing popularity of Second Life, millions of people all over the world are now playing it. Even giant corporations such as Circuit City and Toyota have entered seeking to sell virtual items.

Some residents of Second Life have joined together known as the Second Life Liberation Army to fight back against the growing commercialism. They disrupt events with bomb scripts and guns. It sounds almost like the movie "Fight Club".

4 Brothers

Four brothers left home for college and they became successful doctors and lawyers and prospered.
Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who lived in another city. The first said, "I had a big house built for Mama."
The second said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar theater built in the house." The third said, "I had a Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."
The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this preacher who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took twenty preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for twenty years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it."
The other brothers were impressed.

About a month later the Mama wrote her thank you notes:

"Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."

"Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound, it could hold 50 people, but all my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same."

"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay at home and I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."

"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank You."

Riddle of the Day

A RIDDLE THAT'LL KILL YOUR BRAIN! This is going to make you so MAD!
There are three words in "the English language" that end in "gry". ONE is
angry and the other is hungry. EveryONE knows what the third ONE means and
what it stands for. EveryONE uses them everyday, and if you listened very
carefully, I've given you the third word.

What is it?


[Edit: Okay, I know that this stupid riddle has some of you baffled. I put a link to a site that gives you an explanation. You may not like it, but it is an explanation, nontheless.]

'Twas The Night Before Christmas, Ebonics Version

Twas da night befo' Christmas and all in the hood
Not a homie was stirring cuz it was all good
The tube socks was hung on the window sill
and we all had smiles up on our grill
Mookie and BeBe was snug in the crib
in the back bedroom cuz that's how we live
and moms in her do-rag and me with my nine
had just gotten busy cuz girlfriend is fine
All of a sudden a lowrider rolled by
Bumpin phat beats cuz the system's fly
I bounced to the window at a quarter pas'
Bout ready to pop a cap in somebody's--
well anyway
I yelled to my lady, Yo peep this!
She said, Stop frontin just mind yo' bidness
I said, for real doe, come check dis out
We weren't even buggin, no worries, no doubt
Cuz bumpin an thumpin' from around da way
Was Santa, 8 reindeer and a sleigh
Da beats was kickin, da ride was phat
I said, Yo red Dawg, you all that!
He threw up a sign and yelled to his boyz,
"Ay yo, give it up, let's make some noise!
To the top of the projects and across the strip mall,
We gots ta go, I got a booty call!"
He pulled up his ride on the top a da roof
and sippin on a 40, he busted a move
I yelled up to Santa, "Yo ain't got no stack!"
he said, "Damn homie, deese projects is wack!
But don't worry black, cuz I gots da skillz
I learnt back when I hadda pay da billz."
Out from his bag he pulled 3 small tings
a credit card, a knife, and a bobby pin.
he slid down the fire escape smoove as a cat
and busted the window with a b-ball bat
I said, "Whassup, Santa? Whydya bust my place?"
he said,"You best get on up out my face!"
His threads was all leatha, his chains was all gold
His sneaks was Puma and they was 5 years old
He dropped down the duffle, Clippers logo on the side
Santa broke out da loot and my mouf popped open wide.
A wink of his eye and a shine off his god toof
He cabbage patched his way back onto the roof
He jumped in his hooptie with rims made of chrome
To tap that booty waitin at home
and all I heard as he cruised outta sight
was a loud and hearty.....

Computer Problems?

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a
slowdown in the overall performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry

applications that had operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0".

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as
Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, but installed undesirable programs
such as NFL 5.0 and NBA 3.0 . And now Conversation 8.0 no longer runs and
Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail".
What can I do?



Dear Desperate:

"First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an entertainment package, while
Husband 1.0 is an operating system".

"Try to enter the command: C:/I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME and download
Tears 6.2 to install Guilt 3.0. If all works as designed, Husband 1.0 should

then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5".
"But remember, overuse can cause Husband 1.0 to default to
Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or Beer 6.1.
Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will create Snoring Loudly. WAV files."

"Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-law 1.0 or reinstall another
Boyfriend program. These are not supported applications and will crash
Husband 1.0".

"In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have a limited
memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider
buying additional software to improve memory and performance. I personally
recommend Hot Food 3.0 and Lingerie 7.7".

Good Luck,

Tech Support

Korean New Year's

I pigged out again on Korean New Year's. I went to my parents' place for some Korean BBQ (Kal-bi) and Korean Traditional Rice Cake Soup (Dduk-gook). My mom kept telling me to eat more and so I obeyed. I paid for it later when I was trying to sleep. I was so stuffed I couldn't sleep. I always overeat. I have to control myself, but I lack the discipline to do so. I kept tossing and turning in bed. I even thought about going to work at midnight so I could get an early start.

I need to eat less and exercise more. That's the key to a long and healthy life.

My Motobecane Nemesis triathlon bike soaking in the sun next to the office window on the 40th Floor.

I'm starting to bike to work again and it's awesome! I'm breaking all my old records that I had on my mountain bike. Now, my record is 29 minutes from my place to the office, which is about 9 and a half miles. I still need to train a lot more if I want to enter a triathlon. Those Tour de France riders can average 31 mph over 60 miles!

Valentine's Day is Not About Money

Here's a great article on about how love should not be expressed in dollars, but in love. Somehow Valentine's Day has become a day for retailers to rip off guys by making them feel guilty for not buying diamonds, jewelry, chocolates, and flowers.

Dang Teens!

I was at the mall the other day eating at the food court. I noticed an old man watching a teenager sitting next to him.

The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors: green, red, orange, and blue.

The old man kept staring at him. The teenager would look and find the old man staring every time.

When the teenager had enough, he sarcastically asked, "What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?"

The old man did not bat an eye in his response, "Got drunk once and had
sex with a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son."

Things That Are Certain In Life

The madam opened the brothel door and saw a rather dignified, well-dressed man in his late 20s or early 30s. "May I help you?" she asked. "I want to have Jennifer," the man replied.

"Sir, Jennifer is one of our most expensive
ladies. Perhaps you would prefer someone else,"
said the madam.

"No. I must have Jennifer," was the man's reply.

Just then, Jennifer appeared and announced to the man that she charged $5,000 per trick.

Without hesitation, the man pulled out five thousand dollars and gave them to Jennifer, and they went upstairs and after an hour, the man calmly left.

The next night, the same man appeared again, demanding to have Jennifer.

Jennifer explained that none had ever come back two nights in a row - Too expensive--and there were no discounts. The price was still $5,000.

Again the man pulled out the money, gave it to Jennifer and they went upstairs. After an hour, he left.

The following night the man was there again.

Everyone was astounded that he had come for the third consecutive night, but he paid Jennifer and they went upstairs.

After their session, Jennifer questioned the man. "No one has ever had me three nights in a row.

"Where are you from?" she asked.

The man replied, "Southern California."

"Really" she said. "I have family in Southern California."

"I know," the man said. "Your father died, and I am your sister's attorney.
She asked me to give you your $15,000 inheritance."

The moral of the story is that three things in life are certain:

1. Death

2. Taxes

3. Being screwed by a lawyer

Are Computers Male or Female?

As you are aware, ships have long been characterized as being
female (e.g., "Steady as she goes" or "She's listing to
starboard, Captain!")

Recently, a group of computer scientists (all males) announced
that computers should also be referred to as being female. Their
reasons for drawing this conclusion follow:

Five reasons to believe computers are female:

1. No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.

2. The native language they use to communicate with other
computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.

3. The message "Bad command or file name" is about as
informative as, "If you don't know why I'm mad at you, then I'm
certainly not going to tell you."

4. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory
for later retrieval.

5. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself
spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

*** However, another group of computer scientists, (all female)
think that computers should be referred to as if they were male.
Their reasons follow:

Five reasons to believe computers are male:

1. They have a lot of data, but are still clueless.

2. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the
time they ARE the problem.

3. As soon as you commit to one you realize that, if you had
waited a little longer, you could have obtained a better model.

4. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.

5. Big power surges knock them out for the rest of the night.

Duct Tape

Jeff walks into a bar and sees his friend Paul slumped over the bar. He
walks over and asks Paul what`s wrong.
"Well," replies Paul, "you know that beautiful girl at work that I wanted to
ask out, but I got an erection every time I saw her?"
"Yes," replies Jeff with a laugh.
"Well," says Paul, straightening up, "I finally plucked up the courage to
ask her out, and she agreed."
"That`s great!" says Jeff, "When are you going out?"
"I went to meet her this evening," continues Paul, "but I was worried I`d
get an erection again. So I got some duct tape and taped my penis to my leg,
so if I did, it wouldn`t show."
"Sensible" says Jeff.
"So I get to her door," says Paul, "and I rang her doorbell. She answered it
in the sheerest, tiniest dress you ever saw."
"And what happened then?"
(Paul slumps back over the bar again.)
"I kicked her in the face."

One day a father gets out of work and on his way home he remembers that
it's his daughter's birthday. He pulls over to a toy store and asks the
salesperson, "How much is the Barbie on the display window?"

The salesperson answers, "Which one? We have:
Work out Barbie for 19.95,
Shopping Barbie for $19.95,
Beach! Barbie for $19.95,
Disco Barbie for $19.95,
and Divorced Barbie for $265.95

The amazed father asks:

"What? Why is the Divorced Barbie $265.95 and the others only $19.95?"

The salesperson annoyingly answers:
"Sir..., "Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken's Car, Ken's House, Ken's
Boat, Ken's Furniture, Ken's Computer and One of Ken's Friends.

Joke submitted by K.C.
A husband and wife came for counseling after 15 years of marriage.

When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a long, painful
tirade,listing every problem they had ever had. She went on and on and
on about neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling
unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had
endured over the course of their marriage.

Finally, the therapist got up, walked around the desk, asked the wife
to stand, and then embraced and kissed her passionately.
The woman quietly sat down as though in a daze.

The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife
needs at least three times a week. Can you do this?"

The husband thought for a moment and replied,.. "Well, I can drop her
off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I golf.
