Random

Bit of writer’s block this week, so nothing particularly whole-post worthy…but here’s a few random things:

1) Rosie O’Donell

Yep, Rosie’s joined the 9/11 conspiracy crowd. Of course, she fails to see the irony. The US government somehow manages to plant explosives in the World Trade Center without leaving any evidence…but somehow fails to off an annoying talk show host who blabs about it on TV.

Yep, the government is capable of murder on a massive scale, but unable to silence the conspiracy theorists.

Of course, this is from the woman who said “I don’t know anything about Afghanistan, but I know it’s full of terrorists…speaking as a mother.”

In this context, I assume “Speaking as a mother” means “talking out of my ass” or “suspending rational thought for a moment”.

I think the Brit comedian Bill Bailey put it best:

“The Al-Queda terrorists are a loose association of extremist zealots who can be rounded up with a sustained police action…but speaking as a mother, they’re all 9 feet tall, have lasers under their mustaches, and the only way to deal with them is to nuke every country that hasn’t sent us a Christmas card in the past 10 years!”

2) Technological goodness.

I discovered today, purely by accident, that my digital camera is sensitive to infra-red light, meaning if you look through the viewfinder and press a button on the TV remote, you can actually see the infra-red beam.

I’m currently finding as many remotes as possible to make myself an infra-red nightvision camera…just because I can.

Rosie was "cute" for awhile. Now she's approaching Tom Cruise nut-job status.

LOL, I'd so do the same thing with the remotes...

but I do believe in massive, large-scale government conspiracies.

And Did you know, I didn't have your blog saved on this computer, so I googled it, but I mistyped your real name, and googled your SL name by accident, and your SL Boutique is the FIRST thing to come up LOL.. Also you're like 7th in your "Real Name + blog"
