What the WHAT!!?

Some little young punk did this....

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – An 11-year-old boy gets high marks in storytelling after staging a hoax to cover up his bad grades. Police said the boy faked his kidnapping Friday to avoid bringing home a bad report card, saying that a man with a pistol snatched him after he left Ed White Middle School.

The boy said the man forced him into a "beat-up car" and threatened to kill him. The student said he escaped by jumping out of the car but wasn't able to grab his bookbag, which contained the report card.

He ran to his grandparents' house and later confessed to lying. His grandfather called police to apologize. Sgt. Mark Roberts said police were suspicious that the boy was able to "escape" with his band instrument, but not his bookbag. Roberts said the boy faces no charges at this time.

If this little young punk put this kind of creativity and time in to his school work, he wouldn't need to hide his report card!!!

Is this good or bad?

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

The Associated press reported....

CRESTWOOD, Mo. – A 68-year-old man who still works at the first McDonald's restaurant in Missouri has been honored for 50 years of service.

Leonard Rhomberg began his job at a McDonald's restaurant in the St. Louis suburb of Crestwood in 1959, the year after it opened. And he still works there five days a week.

KSDK-TV reports that the restaurant's owners, Patrick and Tom Hillmeyer, thanked Rhomberg on Wednesday with a cake, gifts and a St. Louis Cardinals jersey.

It is good that he worked anywhere for 50 years, but....ITS MCDONALDS!!!!

Like ummm....check this out...like umm...

This is not even funny...I don't even know what to say to this....BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!


Innovative concept pen by Korean designer Jinsu Park allows you to scan any color from your environment and instantly use it for drawing.

The color is detected by the RGB Color Sensor inside the pen, then the red, green, and blue inks are mixed together to create the desired color.

This site is called Classic University because to me, the Oldschool is the only school. As the Dean of Classic University, I just like certain things the way they used to be, and I would very much like them to go back there.

For example, the other day I was in Home Depot and I just happen to see something called “Hand Scraped Maple”. HUH?!?! Explain to me What that is please? It looked like WOOD to me!

Whatever happened to simple things like Maple wood or Cherry wood, it has to be hand scraped now?

My favorite color used to be Blue, remember that color? The color blue is like a fossil now, they have new and improved blues like, Prussian Blue, Yale Blue and Cobalt Blue, I have even seen LAKE MICHIGAN BLUE…WHAT THE WHAT!?!?!

Lake freaking Michigan Blue? Who is thinking this crap up? It’s all motivated by the love of money and the LOVE of money is ruining this world. How you say?

Next time you are in target or some other store that sells cosmetics, go by the cosmetic aisle and you will see 1.27 billion different colors divided between 3 or 4 different manufacturers. Women are being tricked into believing that diamond blue looks better on them than peacock blue, and yes those colors actually do exist. So as a result, women go and buy 12 different colors and to see which one looks best on them.

And don’t even get me started on trying to pick a color to paint a room, have you ever seen a paint color wheel? The Sherwin Williams website color wheel has over 1500 colors in it….1500!!!!!! (1561 different colors to be exact)

Now I have a public school education so please help me on this one…there are 3 primary colors right? Then you add 3 more secondary colors, and they makes 6 colors, is that correct? Yet Sherwin freakin Williams came up with over one thousand five hundred fifty four more colors?

You are being brain washed people, it is a conspiracy to take your money!!

I remember as a child wanting the box of 64 crayons, you know the one with the with the crayon sharpener on the back of the box…AWESOME…I wanted it so bad I was ready beat up a kid and take his box of 64 crayons.

Tell me this...what kid needs 64 different colors to color Tom (a gray cat) and Jerry (a brown mouse) in a coloring book? I remember that box of 64 had gray as a color and in the same box it had the color silver…in the coloring book world, SILVER IS GREY!!! Wait, my bad, I meant say GRAY, but don’t worry cause GREY is whole other color, so there are no wrong answers here.

Some think its pure genius to come up with such a money making scheme, as an old school activist, I think its pure evil.

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall...

These are top choices of them all!!!
How cool is this, an Ipod touch mirror! LOL!
The infamous MUGSHOT mirror, when you look in the mirror it looks like you are posing for a mugshot.
This mirror has a scrolling LED message board mounted behind a glass mirror.
This cool mirror lists 120 celebrities by height and guarantees to have people loitering in front of it trying to make themselves more Michael Jordan Instead of Bruce Lee.

All of these are great conversation pieces and very original. I love them all and only wish, I could have thought of it myself.

Buddy Desk!?!?

Introducing, the Buddy Desk!! This is an innovative steering wheel desk that can be used as a laptop mount, a lunch table or a writing surface. It easily attaches to your steering wheel and is ready for use in just a few seconds.
Not surprisingly, this product comes with a disclaimer that advises you to only use this desk while your vehicle is parked with the engine turned OFF
Ok so here is my take...we can't drive and drive, now we can't text and drive and but they sell us something that helps us eat, drink and play video games on your laptop while you drive!?!?!
Are you kidding me?!? What's next, microwave ovens in the glovebox?

The Nines have it!!!

The Associated press reported this....

LA CROSSE, Wis. – No doubt. The nines have it. Chuck Berendes of La Crosse said he will never forget the birthday of this third child, born Wednesday on the ninth day of the nine month in the year 2009.

Nor will Berendes and his wife, Polly, forget Henry Michael's arrival time — at 9:09 a.m. by Cesarean section at Franciscan Skemp Medical Center in La Crosse.

But they got the biggest laugh when the newborn was placed on the delivery room scale following his birth. Berendes said it was metric scale so the doctor did the math in his head, but to make sure, he had the nurse also do the conversion.

Berendes said they broke into laughter when the nurse told them Henry weighed 9 pounds, 9 ounces.
