10/29/08 Candy Corn

While stopped in my car at a light this morning, a truck pulled up next to me. Out of the corner of my eye, the back of the truck read "Superior Super Dump". To which I thought, "That sounds fantastic."


During that same car ride, some guys were talking about the website At that exact moment, I saw a guy in my rear view mirror with both iPod buds in his ears as he was driving. I began to wonder if it was the same guy I played basketball with this past weekend that insisted on listening to his iPod during the game.


Your IQ at age 10 has a positive correlation with alcohol problems as an adult. "... for every 15-point increase in childhood mental ability score, the likelihood of drinking problems increased 1.38 times for women, and 1.17 times for men."


Here's something you probably never expected to hear me say - This is my favorite Nickelback cover ever.


Have you seen the new Guitar Hero: World Tour commercial? It seems like risky business to pay four of the top athletes to endorse their product. At first glance, I recognized A-Rod, Michael Phelps and Kobe. After doing some research, I learned that the drummer doesn't have special needs. It's Tony Hawk. All I can think is that 1) Whatever money they paid those four guys, they probably could have put into better development. And 2) As great as those guys are as athletes, A-Rod, Kobe and Phelps are all kind of strange guys. I mean, if you had to choose 3 other athletes to come hang out and play Guitar Hero with you, would any of those guys make your top 20? When I think personable and fun, those aren't the guys that come to mind.


Finally with Halloween creeping up on us, here's my favorite Halloween comedy bit by Lewis Black....
