School lunches

April 26, 2004 at 12:27 PM

I came to a realization about school lunches today. Okay, so I'm 24 years old and really shouldn't still be eating school lunches. But unless I want to not be lazy and/or wake up a lot earlier, I've got no other choice. Just another "perk" of the whole teaching gig. My realization is that instead of making school lunches healthier to prevent kids from getting fat, they just reduced the sizes of portions and blamed... Continue reading

Pat Tillman: 1976 - 2004

April 23, 2004 at 03:45 PM

This is a painful day for the Tillman family and my condolences go out to them. I have known Pat since 1998 and I don't know if I have ever met a more dedicated person in my lifetime. He represented all that was good in sports, bringing passion, honor, integrity and dignity to the game. Pat knew his purpose in life. He proudly walked away from a career in football to a greater calling,... Continue reading

April 22, 2004 at 08:32 AM

Someone clever with too much time on their hands has "researched" how many different ways spammers spell Viagra. The real question is how many times someone has been stupid enough to click on one of the links and try to purchase the stuff.... Continue reading

Homeless people not only uninvited guests at Dallas apartments

April 20, 2004 at 08:47 AM

Back in the good old days, all you had to remember to stay safe from Texas snakes was "red and yellow kill a fellow". Now if you live in a Dallas apartment complex, your last words just might be, "Holy shit! That was a cobra!"... Continue reading

Two things I can't stand

April 18, 2004 at 02:48 PM

There's two things that have always disturbed me that people do: eat ranch dressing on pizza and dip french fries into Frostys. That's fucking weird and it needs to be stopped. The really bad thing is that it's usually the same damn person that does both. Ranch dressing is gross just in general, but if you do like it it's for salad and salad only. Weirdos. And freaking french fries and frostys? That's just not... Continue reading

Wired: Onion Taken Seriously, Film at 11

April 17, 2004 at 01:12 PM

This is pretty funny, you crazy Asians you. For those of you who read The Onion, you know it's a pretty hilarious but very fake news site. Current stories include New Negative Campaign Ads Blast Voters Directly and Rumsfeld Looking Forward To Secretary's Day. Well apparently the Beijing Evening News doesn't catch on too quick. Read this.... Continue reading

The great Lamar race

April 16, 2004 at 09:42 AM

Okay, my interview today is on Lamar and 6th and I knew the traffic was a bitch there, but I didn't know it was this bad. Columnist John Kelso decided to test what would be fast to do at 5pm in Austin, drive down Lamar from Town Lake to 24th or ride your bike along the Shoal Creek trail to get there. Well the bicyclist (who appears to be about a 50+ year old woman)... Continue reading

WTF is a cobb salad and why is everyone eating them?

April 15, 2004 at 08:57 PM

Over the last year and a half, everyone and their mother now sells cobb salads. Freaking McDonalds sells one. What the hell is it? It looks disgusting. Is it healthy or something? We really need to put a stop to eating shit that doesn't taste good. Being healthy is great and all, but you can take your tofu and shove it up your ass.... Continue reading

UConn idiots

April 15, 2004 at 09:23 AM

This is absolutely awesome and incredibly appalling all at once. There are some really stupid freaking people out there, most of them appear to attend colleges in the NE that win baseketball championships (UConn, Michigan State). How drunk/stupid do you have to be to do this? And how small must your penis be if you think it makes you cool. My favorite one is number four. This is a must click link.... Continue reading
