What? I can't ingest my student's blood?

Oddly Enough News Article |
This is some sick sick shit that I found the other day. Apparently teacher/coach down there in BFE AKA Eugene, OR was caught licking student athlete's wounds so they could continue to participate. Way to go coach dumbass!!



So Pat Robertson wants to assasinate Chavez.

"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it," said Robertson on Monday's program. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war."

I'm sure you can find a link to the video if you want. He says this on national television. Then it causes uproar and he wants to take it back.

"I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our special forces should 'take him out.' And 'take him out' can be a number of things, including kidnapping; there are a number of ways to take out a dictator from power besides killing him. I was misinterpreted by the AP [Associated Press], but that happens all the time,"

I don't see room for misinterpretation. He plainly said we ought to go ahead and assassinate him. There was no mention of "take out" the exact word he used was assassinate.

Message to Pat. You can't take back things you say on national television. By the time you realize how dumb it was it can be downloaded off the internet. Moron.

What About the Ween?

Found this news excerpt.

CANTON, Ohio -- There are 490 female students at Timken High School, and 65 are pregnant, according to a recent report in the Canton Repository.The article reported that some would say that movies, TV, videogames, lazy parents and lax discipline may all be to blame.

If I wrote this little blurb it would have read like this.

Canton, Ohio -- There are 490 female steudents at Timken High School, and 65 are pregnant, according to a recent report in the Canton Repository. Roughly 13% of Canton's high school attending women are pregnant teens. The article reported that some would say that movies, TV, videogames, lazy parents and lax discipline may all be to blame. However a more intelligent minority cliams it is the ween and sex that cause pregnancy. They are hoping to soon improve high-school health curriculum to advance the idea that pregnancy is caused by sex. While they don't underestimate the influence of popular culture, they have realized that a condom covering the ween during sex greatly diminishes the likelyhood of fertilization. The two groups will probably be arguing this point for a long time to come.

Adam's Raft Trip

Raft Photo 300dpi
Originally uploaded by aritenou.
The engineering company that I'm working for paid for a raft trip on the Deschutes River for any of their employees and their families that wanted to go. VERY COOL!!! I have personally gone on this very same rafting trip a few times before and it has been very enjoyable each time I have went.

Most of the trip was standard but I do want to tell you about something that happened on this trip that has never happened to me, or our guide, before. There are several rapids on this stretch of river where you can "surf." This means to run though the rapid then come back around almost to the head of the rapid again using an adjacent eddy. Then using the eddy current and paddling really hard you can catch a standing wave in the rapid and just sit there ridding the wave pretty much as long as you want. This is very interesting and fun to do.

At one of these surfing rapids we come around to surf it and get into a good surf. That's where everything goes kinda wrong. Usually when you fall off the wave your boat will turn sideways drag a bunch of current kinda start to get sucked under but then you just get kicked-out and you ride the rest of the way down the rapid. That is not what happened this particular time.

We started to fall off the wave and went sideways like normal but then our raft drags a SHIT load of current and immediately is about half full of water. Here is the sequence that follows for the next 60 seconds or so.

1-15 sec: The raft tilts to about a 45 deg angle upstream and fills to about 2/3 full.

15-20 sec: The other guy in the front of the raft (my boss) falls out and is immediately sucked completely under the boat. Guide says "OH SHIT"!!

20-40 sec: The raft continued to tip and fill with water. The water is now up to my nipples. The raft almost flips.

40-55 sec: Our guide is paddling trying to get us out of there. He tells me to paddle. I paddle.

55-65 sec: We finally start to come out of it but then our raft tips the other way (down river) and starts to fill up with water again.

65+ sec: We somehow finally get out of it and float down through the rest of the rapid. We pick up the guy that fell out. He was totally fine.

So as you can see from the photo there were 2 kids in the boat. They were pretty freaked out. But everything was fine. No one got hurt. I thought it was fucking great. I wanted to do it again.

Here is why this was so weird. I was talking to our guide about this event later and he said he has never seen or even heard about anything like that happen there before and this guy has been guiding this river for 6+ years. "That was epic man!!" the guide said. The reason this was so weird is not only did we almost flip when we were tipping upriver, we then almost flipped tipping down river. I guess the downriver flip isn't even supposed to be possible according to the guide. So call me special because I have done something you probably couldn't do if you tried. Our guide certainly couldn't believe it had happened.

Go whitewater rafting. It's fun.


If Only...

So this guy who has allready been convicted of fraud for trying to sell vitamins and such through television ad's writes a bestseller on the same subject. I think it's hilarious that people are buying this book in massive quantities. Wouldn't you, maybe, do a little research about the author of the book before you bought it? It's also hilarious that one of the doctors who supposedly supports it died years ago. That's great.

For everyone who bought this book I leave you some messages from a couple of our listeners.

"This podcast is great!!! Everyone should listen to Chuck and Adam. It's the funniest shit I've heard in years"
--Jim Morrison

"Podcasts like this are why I bought an I pod. It kicks ass almost as well as I do"
--Bruce Lee

As always.

Teen Drug Use

This has by far got to be one of the worst articles I've ever read. Are they serious?

"Twelve- to 17-year-olds who report that there are drugs in their schools are three times likelier to try marijuana and twice as likely to drink alcohol than teens who say their schools are drug free, the survey showed."

You're kidding right? Kids that know that there are drugs in their school are more likely to use them than the kids who think drugs are not available. Wow. I really needed the associate press to inform me of that. Come on people. It's not news if common sense tells you the same fucking thing. I can't believe that someone out there is reading this article and thinking "Wow, that's amazing." I hate the news. They either report shit or they report fear or they report things that everyone allready knows. AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Awesome. Mugshots of strippers arrested in a Tampa undercover operation. You can read one of the police reports as well.



I found this great quote about Rob Thomas on CrackpotPress.

"Also Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas is going on a solo tour. I think it is important that a whole new generation of young men will earn their degree in "Pussification" How do you earn that? It's easy... spend $200 on concert tickets to go hear a bunch of "sissy boy rock" only to not get any later."

This Is How I Talk

If only Samuel Jackson really did make beer.


Tasing Dogs

Wow. I guess this officer really knows how to use his taser.


Someday, I will scare Adam this horribly.


My Pirate Name is Better Than His

My pirate name is:

Black James Vane

Like anyone confronted with the harshness of robbery on the high seas, you can be pessimistic at times. You tend to blend into the background occaisionally, but that's okay, because it's much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!

Mad Tom Bonney

Ever wondered what my pirate name was? Well wonder no longer.

My pirate name is:

Mad Tom Bonney

Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

Damn Those Waterfalls

This is funny. They couldn't find a 400 ft waterfall? Maybe it was the whiskey.

The Kegbot project

I love MAKE magazine!!! This article especially shows the kinds of stupid shit geeks will do to make any previously fun activity a little more lame by over technologizing it. I do feel compelled to admit that I only bash on the Kegbot guys because I don't have to technological abilities to make one of my own. DAMN YOU UBER GEEKS!!!!


"What a great penis you are." Thanks for the compliment!

In this story we hear about a man that has a lot he needs to tell us about his penis. Shit, I have to listen to that.


Why Do Men Have Nipples?

If this Article didn't have such a good title no one would read it. It's still pretty funny but it's kind of a let down after a title like that.

It's good to be back blogging again.


Gas Prices at Record High

Hmm... Sucks to be us. I know I feel it everytime I go the pump. For anyone really interested. The US Department of Energy puts out a weekly report of average diesel prices. It includes info for every week in the last year.

Wow, too bad you can load this thing with Mickey's.


Dogs Dogs Everywhere

Well now that someone spent $50,000 on a cloned cat you will soon be able to clone your lost pooch. I sense a Maggie Deux coming on.


Road Rage My Ass

This guy drove away from an altercation dropped off his wife and then went back and shot someone trying to get an infant out of a car seat 4 times. He did it in broad daylight. Now he tries to claim road rage. HE LEFT and CAME BACK. That is far beyond road rage. It is premeditation.
