Is Michael Phelps really the greatest Olympian EVER

When did Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (one of them was on Weeds, season 3) go from being cute teen actresses to scary-looking, drugged up freakazoids?

I definitely lean more Democratic than Republican…but is anyone else as scared about Barak Obama as I am?

Things from the 70’s seem to keep coming back into style.  So will somebody please remake the Volkswagon Thing?

I had two vacation days scheduled for the end of this week.  I cancelled them because there’s so much going on at work I can’t keep up.  Does that mean I’m stupid and just working too much or that I’m a good, loyal employee?

Did anyone else really enjoy school lunch when they were growing up?  I did. 

If you a had a choice between a slow & glitchy computer or a gun to your head, which would you choose?  (think hard before deciding)

Has anyone ever done the math to figure out exactly how many animals were on the Ark?  We know the dimensions, right?  So we can calculate the floor space?  And we can estimate the size of various animals?  And therefore can’t we reasonably guess how many different types were on board? 

Is the Roman Catholic Church still universally relevant?

At what age will Tom Cruise actually start looking old?

A Jew, a Christian, and a Muslim embark on a sightseeing race across the state of North Dakota.  Which one dies of boredom first?

    I am 100% not scared by Barack Obama. Now McCain on the other hand… terrifying. A geeked up aging veteran with a well documented temper problem who already wants to blow the middle east back to the stone age. No thanks.

    I want a president who will inspire people and will inspire our country to become something greater than what we have been these past 16 years or so… I think Obama can do that. I don’t agree with him on every issue, but I have been impressed with the thoughtfulness he puts into his answers and even his arguments that I don’t necessarily agree with are well thought out and I can see where he comes to his position.

    Did you see the Rick Warren interviews with Obama and McCain? Curious to know what you thought. I thought McCain was absolutely horrible (although the national media obviously disagrees)… he didn’t answer the questions and just recited parts of his stump speech verbatim. Obama was a little less “smooth” than he usually is but that’s because he was thinking about his answers. He showed an impressive ability to think on his feet and he actually seemed like a man with beliefs and opinions and answers… not someone who had been fed what to say by a team of speech writers and strategists.

    Have not heard the interviews….heard a little about it on the radio, but not nearly enough to draw conclusions from it. I’ll try to catch it on You Tube when I can.

    I’ve heard it was 4oo animals.

  4. Michael says:

    But, does that include the T-Rex?

    does voting for “the lesser of two evils” make any sense, really? not to me. it really is ok to NOT vote. in a way, it’s a vote of NO confidence. i am not entirely scared of obama…but a few of his views really don’t sit well with me. but the same goes for (name your candidate).

    let me know when a good third party candidate shows up…

    Isn’t it sad when there are more votes cast for “American Idol” or “So You Think You Can Dance” than there are for the presidential elections? Really, except maybe for Clinton/Bush in 1992, when was the last time we DIDN’T vote for the lesser of two evils? Not to say Gore/Bush were both evil….but they certainly didn’t inspire me to want to vote for either of them.

  7. jeph says:

    yeah, i guess i’m starting to lean the way of not voting because maybe that’s the counter-cultural thing to do. it doesn’t mean i won’t vote, but i certainly don’t blame people for not voting any more like i used to. i looked forward to being old enough to vote. i have voted. multiple times. and i’ve criticized those who don’t.

    i just can’t do it any more…criticize OR argue for it like i used to. it just doesn’t taste right in my mouth any more.

    but, yes, it is sad that more people vote for singers and pop stars than leaders of nations. i just don’t think that has anything to do with people making a decision not to vote. i think it has more to do with people being so burned by leadership and not being educated enough to make the pure decision to NOT vote. instead, we’re simply not educated right, enough, nor interested enough as a nation. that’s sad.

    but voting just to vote…not sure that’s more right…just saying that sounds pretty legit to me. but it didn’t always.

    to continue the thoughts on obama…i simply can’t vote for him. but mccain isn’t a better option. i’m more concerned that our elections always come down to 2 guys and not a plethora of choices. we’re always bullied into voting for one of two people. i really hate that.
