Utah Senator Butt-Arse calls Gays immoral. And polygamy is? Where is the Big Love?

February 20, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet No flaming please.  I didn't mean to compare Gays to Polygamists.  But if Utah Senator Chris Butt-Ars (A-ha!) has his right to speak what is on his mind, to spout garbage based on stereotypes and gross generalization and nothing else, despite being an elected public official, then I have the right to generalize the State of […]

#Piqqem now has 270 followers…

February 20, 2009 random

Tweet It is amazing to see how a Tweep (or, what’s the name for a company/entity that tweets? And Christi on Southwest… is she a Tweep or is the Tweet Southwest’s?) grows the number of followers. I wonder whether there is a 3rd party Twitter apps. out there that tracks number of followers for selected […]

Crowd sourcing to beat the market: the new tag “$” on Twitter

February 18, 2009 random

Tweet Thanks to Wired, I know now what “$” and “#” mean in Twitter-nese. Yes, I am a N00b… The enigmatic title “On Twitter, $ Is the New #” serves as a test: If you have to ask, I guess this is not meant for you… I am ashamed to admit that I didn’t know […]

The New York Post chimp cartoon – Not at all funny no matter how you look at it…

February 18, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet New controversy alert! February is not over yet, and as many of us have held our breath fearfully awaited, the FIRST racist cartoon about our FIRST Black Prez is out! My fellow Americans, once again, you do not disappoint… So the unfortunate New York Post published this cartoon today and also on its website. […]

Americans pay $650 billion more for health care than comparable countries…

February 18, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet It is technically $643 billion, the additional amount Americans paid for health care in 2006 compared to the other countries with comparable wealth and health, according to the research article “Why Americans Pay More for Health Care?” in the December 2008 issue of the venerable McKinsey Quarterly. (Ok, probably not as venerable as The Harvard Business Review, […]

Mankind’s reach for the sky – The Tower of Babel apparently did not teach us anything…

February 17, 2009 random

Tweet Instead, we seem to pride ourselves on it. Free will. The power to accomplish the unthinkable. The art of one-upmanship. Many did not realize that the 2300-foot tall Burj Dubai is “only” the world’s Tallest Structure, and not the Tallest Building yet. Until Burj Dubai is completed and occupied, the honor of “The World’s […]

Ever woner the worst question your child could ever ask you?

February 14, 2009 no manual for parenting

Tweet I found out tonight. I actually have never even pondered this. But when I heard it from my 6-year-old today, I knew, in my heart, this has got to be the worst question a child could ever ever ask of you, the parent. Not “Am I going to die?” Not “What happened to (insert: […]

Happy Valentine’s Day. And here is a necklace to remind you of your big fat behind…

February 14, 2009 marketing at work

Tweet Is it just me. or does not the entire jewelry line based on Jane Seymour’s Open Heart design remind anybody else of a buttock? The first time we saw the commercial on TV, either from Jared or Kay Jewelers, purveyors of cheesy jewelries, my boys cried out, at the same time, “It looks like […]

Latest Poll: Less than 40% of Americans believe in Evolutionism… Wonder whether Canada fares better

February 13, 2009 Making sure you know I read the Economist so you know I'm not dumb, just obnoxious

Tweet as they have more Democrats and Liberals than we do? This is the latest poll by Gallup this month, in honor of Darwin’s 200th birthday, an update from the Economist Daily Chart that I posted a week ago: data for that chart was from 2006, and at that time, less than 50% of the […]

Betrayed by The Huffington Post? I want my Virtual Lives separated!

February 12, 2009 random

Tweet It is clear that I intend to keep my blog anonymous. Not that it matters to anybody anyway since in the grander scheme of things, I AM anonymous: one of the masses, does not matter whether my name is known or not. However, in the unlikely case when someone at work or a family […]
