Citizenship Test

From Jo:

When immigrants want to become Americans, they must take a civics test as part of their naturalization interview before a Citizenship and Immigration Services officer. The questions are usually selected from a list of 100 sample questions (see at ) that prospective citizens can look at ahead of the interview (though the examiner is not limited to those questions). Some are easy, some are not. We have picked some of the more difficult ones.
Should you be welcomed immediately to the Land of the Free or sent home for some more homework? Find out!

Do you have what it takes to be a citizen?

17/20 for me

( i def shoulda got 19.....oh well)

what'd you score?

Bill Simmons Rules

Bill Simmons has been pretty hit or miss lately...actually I think now that hes back to writing 2 articles or so a week, he's a whole lot better. It used to be too much Simmons IMO....anyway, his latest column, which Kyle pointed out, is his best ever:

kyle (1:56:19 PM): at least simmons article is quality
me (1:56:25 PM): link
kyle (1:58:37 PM):
me (1:58:51 PM): YouTube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
kyle (1:58:54 PM): you could basically do your blog for weeks
kyle (1:58:58 PM): based on this article
me (1:59:00 PM): yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah simmons
kyle (1:59:37 PM): im trying to pick one or two to put on my blog
me (2:00:04 PM): But YouTube ranks among the greatest Internet developments ever, right up there with iTunes, Napster, free porn and e-mails with "Vegas?" in the subject heading.
me (2:00:08 PM): this is the greatest article ever!
kyle (2:00:22 PM): figured you would like it

Bill Simmons: The YouTube Hall of Fame

My favorite of the ones he listed is one of the BEST MOMENETS in NBA HISTORY:


Black and White Twins

Awesome.. (from digg)

Black and White Twins

When Kylie Hodgson gave birth to twin daughters by caesarean section, she was just relieved that they had arrived safely.

It was only when the midwife handed them over for her to hold that she noticed the difference between them.

Remee, who weighed 5lb 15oz, was blonde and fair skinned. Her sister Kian, born a minute later weighing 6lb, was black.

Another AOL CSR story....

from "The Consumerist"

AOL Wants to Sell "Internet" to the Dead

This is low. Very, very low. AOL doesn't even care if your mom is a corpse. They still want to proposition her for access to the magical walled garden world of America Online. Perhaps she was just unhappy with the service? Perhaps we can just reduce the hours to make it softer on the ol' wallet?

No. She's dead. Mom is dead. They don't do AOL in heaven. Up there, they have free wireless broadband.


Mexico or Portugal

(if you've looked at my IM away message the past few days....)

"This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on earth!"

kyle (10:18:24 AM): you realized portugal and mexico are playing each other right now
me (10:19:17 AM): LOL!
kyle (10:19:26 AM): amazing
kyle (10:19:35 AM): the simpsons is so accurate

The Misunderestimated Man

From Justin:

How Bush chose stupidity

Fast Forward to the conclusion:

As the president says, we misunderestimate him. He was not born stupid. He chose stupidity. Bush may look like a well-meaning dolt. On consideration, he's something far more dangerous: a dedicated fool.

ok this show does seem *really* stupid in retrospect if you look at this:

List of problems solved by MacGyver

With his friend dying of carbon monoxide poisoning, MacGyver breaks through his friend's apartment door by tying a fire hose to the door handle and an elevator handrail, then sending the elevator up. He cuts the fire hose with his swiss army knife, ties the nozzle end to the door, the other end to the hand rail, and lays the hose very flat against the ground so the elevator's doors won't close on it. When the elevator goes down, it pulls enough of the door with it that MacGyver can reach in and unlock the deadbolt and chain door lock. Unverified (can that knife cut that hose?) Approximate time: 5:30.

Help Screech! - Dustin Diamond House Foreclosure - Mortgage Loan

I'm Dustin Diamond and you probably remember me from the hit TV show Saved By The Bell. After the show ended I decided to leave Sunny Cailfornia for the midwest. My shitty credit meant that getting a loan for a house would be tough. I began looking and finally purchsed one on a land contract. I was thrilled! Now I call Wisconsin my home.


I've designed a T-shirt for all of you to wear to show your support. All monies go towards Saving My House!

1. A $15.00 donation will get you a comfortable and stylish cotton T-Shirt telling the world you helped save my house.

2. A $20.00 donation will get you that same T-Shirt signed by me with my special message "Fuck Giraldo".

Cancelling AOL

Cancelling AOL

Recently, I decided that I could spend $14.95 a month in many better ways, and decided to cancel the AOL account. Knowing the horror stories, I decided to do the deed at work where I could record the whole thing. I knew it was going to be good, but I had no idea it would be the abusive disaster it was.

A Ringtone adults can't hear

From Scott &, this is pretty awesome. It's a high pitched sound that adults cant hear, but kids can. We played it at work and those of us under 30 definitely could make out the annoying high pitched sound, but my coworkers over 30 couldnt...very strange

A Ring Tone Meant to Fall on Def Ears - NY Times article

In that old battle of the wills between young people and their keepers, the young have found a new weapon that could change the balance of power on the cellphone front: a ring tone that many adults cannot hear.

In settings where cellphone use is forbidden — in class, for example — it is perfect for signaling the arrival of a text message without being detected by an elder of the species.

"When I heard about it I didn't believe it at first," said Donna Lewis, a technology teacher at the Trinity School in Manhattan. "But one of the kids gave me a copy, and I sent it to a colleague. She played it for her first graders. All of them could hear it, and neither she nor I could."

Here's the mp3 itself

Lioness in zoo kills man who invoked God

KIEV (Reuters) - A man shouting that God would keep him safe was mauled to death by a lioness in Kiev zoo after he crept into the animal's enclosure, a zoo official said on Monday.

"The man shouted 'God will save me, if he exists', lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions," the official said.
