I just saw this news alert: “FDA bans cow blood in livestock feed, part of broader restrictions after mad cow discovery,” which made go looking for more information. My thinking was WTF are they doing feeding blood to cows. If that wasn’t bad enough there’s some other nasty ish in that report: The first interim… Continue reading Damn, No Wonder Why the Cows are Mad!

Who Would Have Thunk it?
I was just checking out this week’s NCAA Men’s Basketball polls and was pleasantly surprised to see Duke and Stanford ranked 1 & 2, respectively, in both polls. I have to give Stanford coach Mike Montgomery much dap on his record at Stanford through the years. He arrived at Stanford after Tom Davis left because… Continue reading Who Would Have Thunk it?

My Number Port is Finally Taking Effect
Well all it took was me posting about my number porting woes to get it to work. 🙂 Actually, there’s a fine gentleman and scholar who works at SprintPCS, Curant, who helped me out. He seems to be the only person at Sprint who can get results. I’m so glad I found him over in… Continue reading My Number Port is Finally Taking Effect
Smells Like Roses, Tastes Like Sugar
As Charles points out, USC (PAC-10!) won the national championship yesterday with their impressive win over Michigan. I don’t give a damn what the BCS computers say about the winner of Oklahoma/LSU. Hopefully this controversy will encourage the NCAA to institute a playoff system for football. I’d also love to see some of the coaches… Continue reading Smells Like Roses, Tastes Like Sugar
The Magic Negro
Some things never seem to change. Go read Movies ‘Magic Negro’ Saves the Day – but at the Cost of His Soul to see what I mean. (via Monique)
